In Other Words

If you've watched Hollywood Game Night on ABC you may have seen a game they play called In Other Words. That game gives the competitors an iconic line of movie dialog. Each player must get their team to guess the iconic line by rewording it without using any of the words in the source dialog.

I thought we'd do something similar. I'll select a piece of movie dialog, be it iconic, well known, or representative of a well known movie. I'll encrypt the the line to obfuscate the original words and meaning. You're job is to identify the exact movie quote and the source movie.

For example, if I gave you this:

It is my utmost desire that you assault me with the greatest force you can muster.

You would respond with:

I want you to hit me as hard as you can. - Fight Club

I'll attempt to send one out every two - three days via Twitter. @christoddmiller #inotherwords

If you know the answer, you can reply to the tweet with something like, "I got it!"  Feel free to DM me the answer if you want confirmation. There's no prize other than you get think you're smarter than everyone else. (Hey, welcome to my world. JK.) This way others who come along later can play as well.
