Period Films Quotes Game

It's tricky finding quotes for these games that aren't too tricky or too easy but this time the game just flew together. I hope you enjoy guessing which period films these quotes are from!

To Play: Look at the quotes below and guess what films they come from and what characters are saying the lines. In a couple places I've taken out a name, you won't get any points for guessing those. Leave your guesses in a comment and I'll respond with your score. 

Scoring: There are 12 films and 18 characters to guess. Ten points for guessing each one correctly. A maximum of 300 points can be earned. 

Period Films Quotes:

Quote #1
Character 1: Look at them! Five of them without dowries. What's to become of them?
Character 2: Yes, what's to become of the wretched creatures? Perhaps we should have drowned some of them at birth.

Quote #2
Character 1: He put snow on your ankle? With his own hands?
Character 2: I won't have my girl being silly about boys.

Quote #3
Character 1: He always as a small man. Made smaller by his wife!

Quote #4
Character 1: I ain't dity! I washed my face and hands before I come, I did.

Quote #5
Character 1: Mr. ------ is dead.
Character 2: I see. In that case I should want to give one month's notice.
Character 1: Mr. ------ has destroyed himself.
Character 2: Yes, it's very unpleasant, Sir, to the feelings of one in my position. I think I should leave immediately.

Quote #6
Character 1: They are all the same! They know everything about everything, save, when it is to happen and how it can be stopped. My father was a man. I think I understand the sex.

Quote #7
Character 1: You did bring your brains with you to work today, didn't you!
Character 2: Well I tried to keep them hidden, but you can't live without them all together.

Quote #8
Character 1: This is the land I fought for liberty, now when we fight, we fight for bread... here is the thing about equality, everyone's equal when they're dead.

Quote #9
Character 1: Fortunately for you, -----, the only thing you've ever had to wear twice is a sour expression.

Quote #10
Character 1: She'll be wet through when she returns.
Character 2: Thank you for pointing that out, my dea.

Quote #11
Character 1: We're clearly soldiers in petticoats, and dauntless crusaders for women's a-votes! Though we adore men individually, we agree as a group they're rather stupid.

Quote #12
Character 1: Why did you do it? So stupid, why did you do it?
Character 2: I had two very good reasons. First, I am replaceable and you are not.
Character 1: You are not replaceable to me!
Character 2: Secondly, you're the only wife I've got or ever will have. You are my whole existence, and I will love you until my very last breath.

Happy guessing!
