Weekend Challenge: '90s Movies!

Is everyone ready for a Weekend Challenge? This weekend's theme is brought to you by the Halloween party I am going to next month where we have to dress as '90s movie characters. So since I've been going through movies to find a good costume, I decided that it's only fitting to have 90s Movie Quotes as our theme.

I have 165 quotes or bits of dialogue from movies that came out between 1990 and 1999. If you want to play, just comment below and give me up to 5 numbers. Then use your quote or dialogue as inspiration for a drabble of at least 200 words or 2 or more graphics. (If you get dialogue, you can just be inspired by one sentence of it. Heck, you can just be inspired by the name of the movie or one word of the quote, if that's what does it for you!)

For anything you submit before 11:59p Eastern time on Monday, I will reward you with a drabble or graphic in return, or if you don't want anything, I will add some words to one of my many, many WIPs in your honor!

Now let's play!

Heh. I've never seen any of the movies you got either, although I feel like I've definitely seen clips of Misery and Scent of a Woman!

Lol

As a nerd, I can at least rattle off general plot points and casting for most movies I've never seen. I'm going to wrack the brain on how to make the Misery quote work without me coming off looking like a psycho-fan, myself! :D
