02:48 pm - Say What?
All right, it's Sunday. Let's play a game. Not the screencap game, since that's way too much trouble for me. Instead, you are going to identify lines from television shows. Name the show and the character who said it. For at least one, the line may have simply been text on the screen. No television show will be used more than once. If you figure out a few, you may get some hints for the others. The person who gets the most right (no cheating!) wins...nothing. Unless you have some deep desire for me to write about something, then maybe I'll humor your request. I'm too lazy to screen comments, so you're on your honor, guys. I won't strike out the ones that have been guessed: just try them all without looking first. Then feel free to keep trying if no one else has commented with the right answer. Or even if they have. Everyone have fun! There are no losers here! Only winners...who haven't won...yet.

1. "Me? Well, let me tell you something about normal people like me. They just wish they were special, like you."

2. "That's the plan? Walking real quick was the plan?"

3. "Well, other bands know more than three chords. Your professional bands can play up to six, sometimes seven completely different chords."

4. "But you're well proportioned, that counts for something."

5. "This is where I felt it the first time: the universe was cocking the Fuck-With-Me Gun."

6. "Because it honestly believes they should die. Human beings are different, and anything different is wrong. It's the ultimate in racial cleansing, and you, Van Statten, you've let it loose!"

7. "You found me broken."

8. "'What? I can't hear you. Hold on, let me put the phone up to my bionic ear. There, that's better. WAIT, not so LOUD! I have bionic hearing.'"

9. "That is chocolate-covered death."

10. "Pancakes are cake. Pancakes are for breakfast."

11. "I'm sorry. I don’t get references before 1990."

12. "Quickest way to find the needle? Burn the haystack."

13. "You know, in ancient Persia, the kings would kill a messenger who brought them news they didn't like. In modern times a sword in the chest might seem a little extreme. Something more subtle would be in order. Enjoying your drink?"

14. "God of commerce, wrestling, gymnastics, thieving, good luck, sleep, wealth, and dreams."

15. "Safe? What's safer than a morgue?"

16. "Me and Ashley don't mix. We're like oil and...Satan."

17. "What is it with you girls and your girly-girl drama?"

18. "There's like six Law and Orders on the air now, have you not seen one of them?"

19. "I was just never sure your little feet could reach the pedals."

20. "Lesson #3: No theoretical questions about meteorological anomalies"

1. Yes!
4. Nope.
6. Yep! I didn't know you watched that. That's from the episode I saw today.
7. Yep!
8. Yep! I knew you'd get that one.
10. Yep!

See, you did good! You got enough to figure out why 4 can't be Wonderfalls. So now you might be able to find the Wonderfalls line. Cause you know there is one.

5 really feels like Jaye, but I didn't think fuck was allowed on network TV. Which is why I'm iffy. But now I'm imagining her saying that phrase, and I love it, so that's my guess.

Or it could be 18. Sharon could have said that line, possibly in Crime Dog.

I'm guessing somewhere in here there's a Cupid, Veronica Mars, Angel, Oz, maybe Gilmore Girls. But I'm missing them. Sigh.

5. It does sound like Jaye, doesn't it? Can you think of a character similar to Jaye, perhaps who wasn't on network TV?

18. Yes! Sharon in "Crime Dog." First one to get it.

And you're right about all the ones you're missing. If you give it a go, I can lead you in the right direction.

Okay. I've read all the comments now. I feel dumb for missing George and the Angel quote.

So what's missing, still? 1, 4, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 20. Somebody thinks 20 is Cupid, which I'll allow.

Thinking now...

I want 16 to be Rayanne in My So-Called Life, but I don't think it really is. 13 is the coolest line ever, and I think I've heard it somewhere, but my mind is going all Angel on me which is clearly wrong. Sigh. I'm giving up.

20 is not Cupid.

16 is not MSCL. Heh, there were a lot of other shows I could have included.

13 is from a show not known for its good writing, so it was kind of hard to find good quotes. But I was searching for lines by the two (or three) characters I watch the show for, none of which happen to be the main character.
