MOVIES !!!
Here are the rules.

Answer only one quote.

If you answer more than one I will delete your reply. If there are quotes still not answered the next day I will open it up to any and all guesses.

Most weeks there is a theme. If there is not a theme I will tell you. The theme is open to guess even if you have guessed a quote.

This week's quiz is brought to you by mrgoodwraith, and yes there is a theme

shsilver has guessed the theme, it is Screwball Comedies


Don't use a search engine (like this can be enforced). If you don't know, you don't know. Maybe next week you will.

You must either be signed into LJ, or say who you are (in case you are a friend of mine who is not on LJ). All anonymous answers will be deleted (hey, I'm obsessive, I want to know who guesses these). Oh, and don't guess as a reply to someone else's guess, on a busy day that makes it hard for me to spot your answer.

1. Perhaps you're interested in how a man undresses. You know, it's a funny thing about that. Quite a study in psychology. No two men do it alike. You know, I once knew a man who kept his hat on until he was completely undressed. Yeah, now he made a picture. Years later, his secret came out. He wore a toupee. According to shsilver this is from It Happened One Night
2. About my playing the tuba. Seems like a lot of fuss has been made about that. If, if a man's crazy just because he plays the tuba, then somebody'd better look into it, because there are a lot of tuba players running around loose. According to wyngarde this is from Mr Deeds Goes To Town
3. Now it isn't that I don't like you, Susan, because, after all, in moments of quiet, I'm strangely drawn toward you, but -- well, there haven't been any quiet moments. According to selenesue this is from Bringing Up Baby
4. I wouldn't cover the burning of Rome for you if they were just lighting it up. If I ever lay my two eyes on you again, I'm gonna walk right up to you and hammer on that monkey skull of yours till it rings like a Chinese gong! According to whl this is from His Girl Friday
5. You wouldn't want to have children with three heads, would you? I mean, you wouldn't want to set up housekeeping in a padded cell. Oh, it would be bad. According to greenmansgrove this is from Arsenic And Old Lace
6. Here we are, all packed, ready to leave for Miami, and what happens? The saxophone runs off with a Bible salesman, and the bass fiddle gets herself pregnant! According to polyfrog this is from Some Like It Hot
7. Forgive me for ever having mistrusted you, my darling. But you have been a little distant these past twenty-nine years. According to signy1 this is from A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum
8. I am not joking now. I do not like to act rashly, but you are the last straw that breaks my camel's back. You are the plague. You bring havoc and chaos to everyone, but why to me? Why me? Why?. According to fredhuggins this is from What's Up Doc?
9. It was a rough place -- the seediest dive on the wharf. Populated with every reject and cutthroat from Bombay to Calcutta. It was worse than Detroit. According to controuble this is from Airplane
10. I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future. According to tigertoy this is from A Fish Called Wanda
11. I've seen your picture in the paper and wondered what you looked like. According to exapno this is from The Awful Truth
12. One of the servants has been at the sherry again. According to exapno this is from The Philadelphia Story

I think 10 is A Fish Called Wanda.

By the way, #12 duplicates #4.

He gave me 10 quotes, so I added two. I looked at the list over and over to make sure that I didn't duplicate what he had given me ... yeah, that worked out well
