Movie Quotes Redux

I’ve wanted to do this for a while, but I kept getting sidetracked. callumvixen  giving hints for her unanswered movie quotes gave me the kick in the ass I needed to make my unanswered ones a little easier.   All the quotes are from the same movies, I just changed them to, hopefully, more familiar lines.

Movie Quotes

Saw this in [info]scriggle's journal.  So I thought It'd be fun to do my own.  Took me a while to put the list together and find just the right quotes, so I hope some are at least a little difficult to figure out.



My cousin sent me this joke...

A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.

The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy, 'If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a calf?'

Bud looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, 'Sure, Why not?'

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer,connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany.

Within seconds, he receives an email on hi s Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-Tech Miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the cowboy and says, 'You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.'

'That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,' says Bud.

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

Then Bud says to the young man, 'Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?'

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, 'Okay, why not?'

'You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government', says Bud.

'Wow! That's correct,' says the yuppie, 'but how did you guess that?'

'No guessing required.' answered the cowboy. 'You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about cows...this is a herd of sheep. . .

Now give me back my dog.

Results of album meme

Here's how my album meme (from scriggle) turned out:

I cheated a little on the quote -- using the last 4 words just didn't make sense.
Original quote: The greatest mistake is trying to be more agreeable than you can be.
Walter Bagehot (1826 - 1877)

BTW, just what does meme mean?  *is still n00b*

*is easily amused* :D

He told us how he finally ended up in the business and talks extensively about his part on Battlestar Galactica and other parts he did recently.

Enjoy and let me know what you think! 

It was apparently done a while ago, so unfortunately,  no S4 spoilers.
