Any person who wins 5 weeks (consecutive or non-consecutive) will earn a Movie Master award and must then refrain from guessing for 5 weeks.

On to the quiz!

1. "You are confusing bets and marriages, madame. One must always honor a bet." (Richard Doyle)

2. "He needed me now more than ever, but something had come between us. I'd stopped even paying attention to him. Instead I sat in the car and read a map and spelled out entire sentences with my tongue on the roof of mouth where nobody could read them." (Richard Doyle)

3. "There is no time for egos, this is not girl scouts. this is espionage."

7. "Suicide is like... the ultimate fuck you." (Richard Doyle)

8. "They say rubber's mainly for perverts. Don't know why. Think it's very practical, actually. I mean, you spill anything on it and it just comes off. I suppose that could be why the perverts like it." (Richard Doyle)

9. "We all dream of being a child again, even the worst of us. Perhaps the worst most of all." (Richard Doyle)

10. "I like my cheese in the ounces. When they start weighing as much as a Fiat, I get worried." (Richard Doyle)

17. "At first you don't think you can stand to get hit, then you realize you can take it 'cause the blood don't matter. It's a great gift I'm goin' to give you - to know it don't hurt to fight!" (Richard Doyle)

18. "And if they ever ask about me, tell them I was more than just a great set of boobs. I was also an incredible pair of legs. And tell them... tell them that I never turned down a friend. I... never turned down a stranger for that matter. And tell them... tell them that when all is said and done, I only ask that people remember me by two simple words. Any two, as long as they're simple." Grandpaboy

19. "When you get up in the morning, how do you decide what shade of black to wear?" (Richard Doyle)

20. "Death, death, death comes sweeping down, filthy death the leering clown, death on wings, death by surprise, failing evil from worldly eyes, death that spawns as life succumbs, while death and love, two kindred drums, beat the time till judgement day, an actor in a passion play, without beginning, without end, evermore, amen." (Richard Doyle)

21. "Did you know that there is a certain species of turtle that can screw for three days without stopping? You dont believe me do you? But how could I make something like that up? Can you believe that three days? I'm lucky if I can get three minutes. You know how I know this because I went down to the zoo and I watched them. It was very boring. Well actually I didn't stay the whole three days I went down and I watched the zebras because they wont take thirty seconds premature ejaculation!" (Richard Doyle)

Have we not each experienced the sensation that a beautiful moment seemed to pass to quickly, and wished that we could make it linger? Or felt time slow on a dull day, and wished that we could speed things up a bit?" (Richard Doyle)

25. "Yeah! I am sure. I've permanently yanked the silver spoon from my mouth, and I buried it 6,000 miles beneath the Earth's crust. I mean, figuratively speaking, of course. I mean, who could do such a thing? That would be insane." (Richard Doyle)

26. "When people believed the earth was flat, the idea of a round world scared them silly. Then they found out how the round world works. It's the same with the world of the supernatural. Until we know how it works, we'll continue to carry around this unnecessary burden of fear." (Richard Doyle)

27. "We find the defendants incredibly guilty." Payo

28. "Are you sure you were talking about water skis? From where I sat it looked as though you were conjugating some irregular verbs." (Richard Doyle)

29. "It only took me one night to realize if brains were dynamite you couldn't blow your nose." Scoops

30. "I've been trying to figure something in my head, and maybe you can help me out, yeah? When a person is insane, as you clearly are, do you know that you're insane? Maybe you're just sitting around, reading "Guns and Ammo", masturbating in your own feces, do you just stop and go, "Wow! It is amazing how fucking crazy I really am!"? Yeah. Do you guys do that?" Jason

31. "We're not intimate dear. We just have sex occasionally."

33. "I give you a choice. Surrender to me and I will spare their miserable lives, or perish with them on this primitive and tasteless planet. Surrender your sword!" Payo

37. "Ow! My robot balls!" Scoops

38. "On my planet, we don't say die, we say kill!"

39. "They tortured me almost to death, and then let me heal in a vat of blood so they could go at it again. Sorry sons of bitches could've at least fixed my damn leg while they were at it." Penh

Comi-Con Finds

I wanted to do a post talking up some of the cool stuff that crossed my path at Chicago Comi-Con!

I was very lucky to get this excellent Barbarella drawing by the super talented Jason Chalker! You should check out his Manly Art Blog to see more of his excellent art!

The Albatross Comics people were my neighbors at the convention and they have a pretty cool book called Guilty of Conscience. Check out their website for samples.

I got a chance to meet Java of the pin-up site extraordinaries Java's Bachelor's Pad. Did you know they have a magazine? It is fab! Any fan of pin-ups and burlesque should do yourself a favor and check it out!!! Way Cool!

My other very cool neighbor was Michael Dauenhauer a very talented young artist who was cool enough to give me one of his neat drawings! Click the link to check out his Deviant Art page.

And best of all I got to meet Gil "Buck Rogers" Gerrard!!!! I think it's quite possible he was my first crush :) He still looks great and was really friendly. I was giddy for like 2 hours after meeting him...I'm such a fangirl!
