And I feel fine ...
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.

wyngarde has guessed the theme ... it's End Of The World/Doomsday movies

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.

And a new rule. 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)

And we have a dozen this week. I started with 17 and could only convince myself to cut so many. I did take out a couple of REALLY obvious quotes. Good luck.

01 I was on the freeway, about thirty miles away. I'm not sure... it was high in the air, directly above downtown. jrittenhouse seems to think that this is from The Day After ... ya know ... that's right.
02 You want to get out of here? You talk to me. wyngarde seems to think that this is from Road Warrior ... ya know ... that's right.
03 Ah, people were always lousy. But there was a world, once. bammba_m seems to think that this is from Soylent Green ... ya know ... that's right.
04 Is there anything you can do, DOCTOR, I mean, seeing as how you've lost over 200 million patients? exapno seems to think that this is from The Omega Man ... ya know ... that's right.
05 There has been a malfunction in Project Flashlight with devastating results. shsilver seems to think that this is from The Quiet Earth ... ya know ... that's right.
06 Cassandra in Greek legend, you recall, was condemned to know the future but to be disbelieved when she foretold it. Hence the agony of foreknowledge combined with the impotence to do anything about it. cjfringe seems to think that this is from 12 Monkeys ... ya know ... that's right.
07 Well, I've been to one world fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard come over a set of earphones. jabber seems to think that this is from Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb ... ya know ... that's right.
08 Keep behind me. There's no sense in getting killed by a plant. selenesue seems to think that this is from Day Of The Triffids ... ya know ... that's right.
09 No, I'm looking for someone. She'll be in a church, standing by the door. archiver_tim seems to think that this is from War Of The Worlds (the only one, really) ... ya know ... that's right.
10 We can coexist, but only on my terms. You will say you lose your freedom, freedom is an illusion. All you lose is the emotion of pride. mike46 seems to think that this is from Colossus: The Forbin Project ... ya know ... that's right.
11 Pain can be controlled - you just disconnect it. controuble seems to think that this is from The Terminator ... ya know ... that's right.
12 Daddy would have gotten us Uzis. grey_lensman steps up first this week. He seems to think that this is from Night Of The Comet ... ya know ... that's right.

Now that I have an all region DVD player ... I need to see if that is available on DVD in Australia ... That was one that I thought was going to be a problem. It never got wide release, and I have never seen it on TV.
