Retro Tuesday: '80s Movies Quiz #1

Okay, name the movie from which the quote is taken, and the character(s) and/or actor(s) speaking:

1. "So you lost your job? I've lost twenty of them since graduation. Plus a wife and kid. And, in a new development this morning, a handful of hair in the shower drain."

2. "Wait a minute--he's after you. Who the hell are you?"
"Well, I'm a romance novelist."
"You're what? What are you doing here?"
"I told you, my sister's life depends on me."
"Ah, don't give me that shit. I thought you were donating a kidney or something."

3. "You're not the man I knew ten years ago."
"It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage."

4. "I'm your boyfriend now, Nancy."

5. "Ray. When someone asks you if you're a god, you say 'yes!'"

(All right, I know some of these are easy...but they made me laugh out loud!)

I'm stumped on #1 too.

And that line from NOES has always given me the creeps.

I knew these were too easy, but I loved the one from Romancing the Stone.

As for number 1, think Brat Pack.

OH, I know # 1!

"you know what it is? It's St. Elmo's Fire."

And that's your answer too!

Number one good thing about having to work...the answer to Colleen's 80s trivia is already posted by the time I get home & I don't have to rack my brain all day trying to figure them out. :)

Loved the Romancing the Stone one, too!!!

I only knew two of them. And I usually am pretty good at these things. It's probably because I've only seen to of these movies. So does that make me 2 for 5 or am I 2 for 2?

Well, Dane, I figure if you haven't seen 'em you can't know'em...so I'll give you two for two. Congrats! The first person who got all potentials right! LOL.
