The Movie Quote Game (Alfred Hitchcock Edition)

This month, we're focusing on quotes from Alfred Hitchcock films. We will list a quote from one of his movies and ask you to name it. Try to answer these questions on your own without resorting to Google searches. As always, please answer no more than three questions per day so others can play.  If you have a response other than the intended one, just be able to defend it.

1.  "Last night, I dreamt I went to Manderley again."

2. "What are you doing here in Bodega Bay?"

3. "Mr. Rusk, you're not wearing your tie."

4. "You want a leg or a breast?"

5. "Whether you killed him or not, you've incriminated yourself. You'll have much more of a job explaining a body you didn't kill and buried than a body that you killed accidentally and buried."

6. "Oh, it's just like Sherlock Holmes and his fiddle. A stream of beautiful sound and then suddenly out pops the solution."

7. "Boris? Miss Henderson speaking. Look, someone upstairs is playing musical chairs with an elephant. Move one of them out, will you? I want to get some sleep."

8. "Hello, Monkeyface!"

9. "If I let you change me, will that do it? If I do what you tell me, will you love me?"

10. "You Freud, me Jane?"

11. "I've always wished for more artistic talent. Well, murder can be an art, too. The power to kill can be just as satisfying as the power to create."

12. "My theory is that everyone is a potential murderer."

13. "What are you doing here? It's rather a long story, Mr Fry. It all started with an unknown blonde, an aircraft worker at a factory in Glendale, California."

14. "She's too perfect, she's too talented, she's too beautiful, she's too sophisticated, she's too everything but what I want."

15. "God bless Mama, Papa, Captain Midnight, Veronica Lake, and the President of the United States."


  1. 1. Rebecca
    2. The Birds
    4. To Catch a Thief

    1. Well done, Gina! Thanks for getting this game off to a fine start.

  2. Goood evening. I'd like to guess:

    8. Suspicion
    13. Saboteur (not to be confused with Sabotage)

  3. 3. Frenzy (final line)
    7. The Lady Vanishes
    15. Shadow of a Doubt

    1. Nice job, Toto! Honestly, I never understood Jeff's hesitation with Lisa.

  5. #10 is the only quote that needs to be identified.

    1. Thank you, Louis! That concludes this month's game. Thanks to everyone who played!

  7. This was fun! Since I was too late to play for real, I scored myself based on others' answers above. Got 5 right, and mixed up #11 and #12. When I saw those two quotes, I knew one was from Rope and the other Strangers on a Train, but couldn't remember which was which. Call it 5 1/2 points out of 15.
