Is there sugar in syrup?

So it's Thursday, and I'm pretty darn happy about it. To commemorate, hopefully spread the joy around some, or maybe just provide a bit of distraction from your daily life, here's a meme I grabbed from Margaux. You're supposed to pick 10 of your favorite movies, find a quote from each, and let everyone guess which movie the quote is from. Well, there are simply too many great quotes from great movies, that I decided to tweak this just a little, using only food-related quotes. Also because, you know me, I love food. So, here you go- my own food version of the movie meme. Have fun, and remember- no one like a Cheater McCheaterson!

1. Whenever a boy comes over, you should always have something baking. Clueless (Mle, Robyn, Dee, and Andrea)
2. Great pate mom, but I gotta motor if I wanna be ready for that funeral. Heathers (Dis and Mouse)
3. I also wrote "Pesto is the quiche of the 80s." When Harry Met Sally (Andrea)
4. Can I interest you in some nipples of Venus? Chocolat (K8 and Dee)
5. Take the gun. Leave the cannolis. The Godfather (Dee)
6. I don't think I've ever drunk champagne before breakfast before. With breakfast on several occasions, but never before. Breakfast at Tiffany's (Robyn and Dee)
7. Why do you eat that stuff? There's no food in your food. Say Anything (Margaux, Madge & I'll give Andrea partial credit. ;) )
8. PB&J with the crusts cut off. Well Brian, this is a very nutritious lunch. All the food groups are represented. Did your mother marry Mr. Rogers? The Breakfast Club (Robyn, Dee, Andrea, and Marnie)
9. We're a Vietnamese restaurant. We just don't have bread. Garden State (Melissa, Robyn, Dis, and Andrea)
10. Pick up the cookie, dip it in the milk, and eat it. Stranger Than Fiction (Dee)

Extra credit (and if anyone gets this I will be really impressed!): Anyone who forces me to make chicken pepperoni is making me crazy, and YOU are making me crazy. Seems Like Old Times

And yes, the title is from Elf, correctly guessed by Mle, Dee, and Margaux. :)

Great job, guys- thanks for playing!! :)

Oh I'm terrible with movie quotes but I definitely know the first one! it's from Clueless! I just saw it on tv the other day.

mle said...

wait, is the title quote from Elf? isn't that when he's eating spagghetti with syrup on it? yuck! If I guessed right then I'm feeling pretty smart right about now. LOL!

Melissa said...

7 & 8 sound really familiar, but I can't place them. #9 is from Garden State. I just watched that a couple of weeks ago. It's a great one.

Mouse said...

#2 is definitely Heathers.. one of my favorite movies of all time. All the others that I knew have already been mentioned.. lol. I guess that means we all have similar taste in movies.

How could I not remember Heathers?! *thunks head on desk*

Okay, one of my own fave food movie quotes: "Put in on a plate, son. You'll enjoy it more."
