I will give some examples…
In Pulp Fiction, and in Die Hard with a Vengence, he utters the same words. However, you have to be paying attention.
In Pulp Fiction, he is singing a song in the white Honda. The words “smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo.” are sung. In DHWAV, he says the same words “smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo” talking to S.L. Jackson.
This is what I’m looking for. I will give a couple more examples, along with one example that doesn’t work.
Arnold Schwarzenegger - in the Terminator, he says “I’ll be back.”. He says this in a number of movies he made after that, including The Running Man. It’s become his personal catchphrase.
Mel Gibson - this is a tough one. Normally, I won’t accept one or two word answers like “Hello”, but if it is an unusual word, or integral to the plot or character, we’ll take it on a case by case basis.
In Braveheart, his last word before being shredded to bits was “Freedom!”. In Chicken Run, an animated movie in which Mel plays the lead rooster called Rocky, he is shot from a cannon in a circus he is desperately trying to escape… When he flies over the fence around the chicken coop, he is heard yelling “Freedom!”, which is his first word in this movie. This was my favorite discovery in this strange game.
OK… One that is close but no cigar. In Jaws, Richard Dreyfus says “this was not a boating accident!” while he is looking at the remains of the first shark attack victim. In the movie Stake Out, Emilio Esteves and Dreyfus are on a stakeout and are quizzing each other. One of the things they do is exchange lines from movies. Esteves says to Dreyfus, “this was not a boating accident.” and Dreyfus can’t name the movie it was from. The irony, of course, is that he said it himself in Jaws, a clever piece of writing.
After these examples, I hope it makes sense… Does anyone else have other examples they’d like to share?
Feel free to ask questions if the OP isn’t clear.
