Give me 200 seconds, and I'll give you the world 

One hundred of the best movie lines in 200 seconds. More fun than you are likely to have in any 3.33 minute period all day.

My co-conspirator/troll (not on your blog but he's coming) just gulped 8 year old Jamaican rum we almost polished off tonight and said they missed this one:

Praetorian Guard: "Halt! What is the password?"

Caligula (Malcolm McDowell): "Scrotum."

Praetorian Guard: "Wrong!" [stabs Caligula]

You're making a good point there.

CC: We've actually discovered some element of common ground, and that common ground is a reference to Caligula. I'm so ashamed...

I wish they'd labeled the origin of each quotation... I didn't recognize all the films.

Pretty fun - thanks TH.

I agree with Dawnfire too - I recognized most but missed quite a few of them.

Maybe a signature silent film moment or two would've been cool also.

And of course a Marx Brothers quote.

My fave:
"I won't be insulted, I won't be wronged, I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them"

John Wayne as "The Shootist"
