March Movie Madness Sideshow

What? You're already done with your picks for Kos's March Movie Madness and you're sitting about twiddling your thumbs awaiting 6PM Eastern?

Well, I've got something here to pass the time: It's Looney's Triple-M Sideshow!

Following are 64 movie quotes. They're not just any quotes, though, each is from one of the movies in the original bracket. So you've got a list to go with. Some of these are easier than others, certainly. Some quotes are just too precious to pass up, even if they are relative freebies.

Only two rules. If your name is Jeff, you can only answer 10 at the most, at least until peeps have given up on the rest. (Actually, that rule applies to anyone!) The second is, come on, say it with me: NO GOOGLING!

UPDATE: Okay, the answers are filled in, along with the person who posted the correct answer first! Thanks for playing along!
