Irish Movie Meme!

Number 9 is Far and Away! Thanks to everyone for playing! :D

Here's a fun meme I saw on Lynne's Little Corner of the World.

The Rules!

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies. (I picked 10 of my favorite Irish movies.) 2. Go to IMDb (Internet Movie Database) and find a quote from each movie. 3. Post them here for everyone to guess (if you know them all, please don't guess every one). 4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie. 5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. (That would be cheating, and no fun!)

Here are my quotes and hints: All these movies are set in Ireland! Don't think Irish mobs in America, Think Dublin, Limerick, etc!

1.) Sir!... Sir!... Here's a good stick, to beat the lovely lady.
(The Quiet Man, one of my all time favorites! Miriam has written a lovely post about this, her favorite movie, too!)

2.) Is there a greater twist of fate Annie? To win half a million and the next minute die from the shock of it.
(Waking Ned Divine! Great job Mary!)

3.) How do you know he was Spanish? Or a sailor? He could've been a Pakistani postman if you were that drunk!
(The Snapper! Mary's gettin' giggie wid it!)

4.) Do heavy metalers eat chips?
(The Van and Mary Rocks!)

5.) Do you not get it, lads? The Irish are the blacks of Europe. And Dubliners are the blacks of Ireland. And the Northside Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin. So say it once, say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud.
(The Commitments! Way to go, Diane!)

6.) All is nothing, therefore nothing must end.
(My Left Foot! Give that Mary a shillelagh!)

7.) Have you ever seen the seagulls a-flyin' o'er the heather, or the crimson sails on Galway Bay the fishermen unfurl? Oh, the Earth is full of beauty, and it's gathered all together in the form and face and dainty grace of a pretty Irish girl. Oh, she is my dear, my darling one, her eyes so sparklin' full of fun, no other, no other can match the likes of her! She is my dear, my darling one, my smilin' and beguilin' one; I love the ground she walks upon, my darling Irish girl!
(Darby O'Gill and the Little People! W2G Tiffany!)

8.) Fairy land was never like this!
(Finian's Rainbow! Mary Donley got this jewel by contacting me through e-mail! You Go Gal!)

9.) I recognize these hedges by their dullness.

10.) Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. It's been a minute since my last confession.
(Angela's Ashes! Faith and Begorrah Deana!)
