A day at the movies

More like a meme about the movies, shamelessly stolen from my favorite Movie Muse.

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.
5. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.

Some are, of course, easier than others.
  1. This is not unlike escaping my mother's womb. God, what a memory. - Kerry was quick with recognizing Ladyhawke!
  2. Hey... they're just using the same actor over and over. What kind of cut-rate production is this? Shalini recognized Pixar's Cars, thanks to her young son!
  3. All science trembles at the searing logic of your fiery intellect. Arsena recalled Gen. Armistead's barb to Gen. Pickett in Gettysburg.
  4. No, it's not what you think. It's much, much worse!
  5. I gotta take a leak so bad I can taste it.
  6. "We'll never survive!" - "Nonsense. You're only saying that because no one ever has." Annette correctly identified Princess Bride.
  7. I will not say, Do not weep, for not all tears are an evil. Thus spake Gandalf, remembered Chiasmata, in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.
  8. 'Greater good?' I am your wife! I'm the greatest *good* you are ever gonna get! - _The Incredibles_, courtesy of Weather Goddess Glenda
  9. You Americans, you're all the same. Always overdressing for the wrong occasions. Annette also unearthed Raiders of the Lost Ark
  10. We've gotta protect our phoney baloney jobs, gentlemen!
  11. Life goes by pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Heather certainly didn't miss Ferris Bueller's Day Off!
  12. Every time I try to talk to someone it's "sorry this" and "forgive me that" and "I'm not worthy"... Chiasmata also easily recognized Monty Python and the Holy Grail!
  13. Summa cum laude. Magna cum laude. The radio's too laude. ... Cris nabbed Johnny Dangerously
  14. You know, you come from nothing, you're going back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing! - Life of Brian, awarding both Monty Python films to Chiasmata!
  15. We all end up dead, it's just a question of how and why. Karen correctly gathered this was Braveheart.

I've not seen as many movies as most of my contemporaries, so these are probably easy. Still, first commenter gets the credit. And if by some luck there are unanswered ones by next Friday, I will post the remaining answers then.
