Where Did That Come From?


Okay, It's Thursday and I'm feeling a little goofy! So you've been warned.
I have a lousy memory, I mean REALLY. So when a quote or passage sticks with me, it is something to celebrate!  That's awesome when its scripture or snatches from hymns or worship songs, but I can get the weirdest things stuck in my head!

Can you identify what movies these lines come from?

Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a recently "graduated" homeschooling mom whose twin girls have blessed her by sticking around the nest for a little longer. She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. I just nominated you for the Liebster Award on my blog 🙂


  2. Jessica, I didn't know #2, but I liked it! I wasn't sure which movie #9 was in, but I knew who said it.Not sure if it's sad that I remember so much about trivial things like movies, or if it's telling that I really insert myself into what I'm watching/reading/writing that it stays with me.Who knows? Maybe the fact that we can vicariously experience things so easily leads us to the writing we love?Thanks for dropping by and making me think deeply! I needed that!Blessings <><


  3. I knew almost all of them! lol Sad or cool? I don't know.I just quoted Dirty Dancing the other night, when "I carried a watermelon." to a friend's house. 🙂 Fun!!!


  4. Loree, usually that happens to me about 11PM. My family has called it droobling for decades. I can't claim that with this post, though. Wrote it up yesterday morning – ah well.Maria, that definition of stagnate stops me cold. Don't want to go there! Oh, and I think I remember something like that from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but it a Groucho Marx original from the 30's. Thanks for visiting, gals!


  5. What fun! Are you sure #9 is from Animal Crackers? I was thinking Chitty Chitty Bang Bang – didn't the Grandpa say that? Always good to see you over at Life Lessons! And you're right – there's nothing good about stagnation! I looked up the word 'stagnant.' Here's the definition: not moving or flowing; motionless; foul from standing still; stale; lacking liveliness; sluggish. Wow! Definitely not how I want to live my life!Have a truly blessed week growing in the Lord!


  6. Fun post. My memory is goofy at times too.Just go with it.
