Period Film Quotes Game {February 6th}


It's been awhile since we've had a quote game and I had lots of fun choosing quotes for this game! Hopefully these aren't very difficult to guess. Have fun!

To Play: Read the quotes below and guess the period film and the names of the characters who said them in the films. I'll respond with your score. Answers will be posted next weekend.

Scoring: One point for every correctly guessed period film and character. A total of 21 points can be earned.


Period Film Quotes

Quote #1
Character 1: It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in a language chiefly made by men to express theirs.

Quote #2
Character 1: I have lived a full life here. I have not been trampled on. I have not been petrified. I have not been excluded from every glimpse that is bright. I have known you, Mr. Rochester and it strikes me with anguish to be torn from you.

Quote #3
Character 1: I have seen a great many things. I have attended all the world's worst disasters, and worked for the greatest of villains. And I've seen the greatest wonders. But it's still like I said it was: no one lives forever.

Quote #4
Character 1: Exceptional children are often the product of unremarkable parents.

Quote #5
Character 1: I must say, though, the worst of Bath is the number of plain women. I frequently observe that one pretty face would be followed by five and thirty frights.

Quote #6
Character 1: You think if you shake me hard enough something profound with come out, but I assure you, I am profoundly shallow.

Quote #7
Character 1: Did he tell you that he loved you?
Character 2: Yes. No. Never absolutely. It was everyday implied but never declared.

Quote #8
Character 1: It is not pleasant for me to say these things, but I must tell you the truth while I still can, proving myself your friend by the most faithful counsel, trusting that sometime you will do my faith in you greater justice that you do it now.

Quote #9
Character 1: You talk easily of hours, sir. How long do you think an hour is to a man who is choking for want of air?

Quote #10
Character 1: A mother's love holds fast and forever. A girl's love is like a puff of smoke - it changes with every wind.

Happy guessing!
