View Full Version : Quote the Raven

Quote the Raven (game description)
the game starts with a quote from
a movie, film, tv show, book, etc
*try to keep it pop culture if possible*
and the points go as such:

1 point for title (book movie etc)
1 point for who said it (character)
1 point for author (creator etc)
1 point for actor (if movie or tv)
<so 3 or 4 point depending on quote.>

example quote:
"what a wonderful smell you've discovered."

STAR WARS episode 4 = 1 point
Han Solo = 1 point
Harrison Ford = 1 point
George Lucas = 1 point
for a subtotal of 4 points

now quote must be guessed in 3 goes,
not three goes per person, 3 posts;
and if not then answer is given by
person who posted it.

*special bonus points*
if you guess in 1 try = 2 bonus points
in 2 tries = 1 bonus points
in 3 tries = 0 points extra.
AND if no one guesses correctly
10 points for the quotes originator*

I will begin: Quote

"I know your destiny,
you will ask a question,
and die before you hear the answer."

Finally, a new game that isn't embarrassingly infantile.

Title: The Tenth Kingdom (shudder)

Char.: Some hunter guy.

Actor: ?

Creator: Simon Moore (?)

:jawa 5 points to Gendo:jawa

(kind of shocked anyone else
has ever seen this one,
thought it was worth some points
for me, for sure.)

*actor was Rutger Hauer as the Huntsman*
so you lose one point there.
<if you had said tape two of three
in Kissing Town, the 4th Kingdom
and to an antique dealing Elf,
I would have scored you full points.>

*you should quote the Raven now Gendo*

"I Did Not say this,
I was Not Here."

08-16-2002, 11:44 AM
Sounds a lot like Gus from Drop the Dead Donkey, but I think it's far more likely to be...

...from DUNE, spoken by the Guild Navigator. I assume it's in the book, the movie, and the miniseries, but I know it's in the movie so I'll go with that. So, made 1984, directed by David Lynch, based on the book by Frank Herbert.

Actor? No idea!

Darth Eggplant
08-17-2002, 01:09 AM
You can have 6 points for that,
that way Gendo will feel competative
and want to beat your score.
I would have really been wowed
if you had said Alan Smithee
which Dune was also released under.

anyway someone else quote the Raven now.

08-17-2002, 02:53 PM
There's no better way to spend the day than some good, old-fashioned arse-kicking!

It's a videogame, not movie. But actor is voice actor.

not playing alot of games
if it computer cd rom oriented
perhaps Duke Nukem,
Quake (any version),
Half Life, Rainbow Six,
Unreal Tournament
or any 1st person shooter game.

or some kind of Street Fighter
thingy... said by some pixelated
punk hopped up on c+++ programing.:D

just a guess though

08-22-2002, 01:53 PM
Let's just say he's got white hairs... and yellow teeth... I think...

i have not got a clue.

someone do not waste another post

anyways sanspoof let us know.

next raven to quote:


08-23-2002, 02:29 PM
Sorry, it was General Viggo from Fur Fighters. Ummmm... no idea who the voice actor is, though. I was going to check the manual, but... uh... I lost it. But anyway, I win! 10 points to meeee!!!

08-23-2002, 04:14 PM

Give my points to..um..anyone that's NOT HUZ :D

I'm thinking, I'm thinking... Nope, I tried to Wing it, but I came up with Zero.

I've thought of one now, it's so goddamn easy I'm almost ashamed to put it up, but here we go anyway:

Darth Eggplant
08-24-2002, 12:16 AM
Sanspoof at 10 points

Huz at 6 points

Gendo at 5 points

scabb at 4 points

*scabb you get
bonus 2 points for first guess,
but only 2 points for naming
character and the show.
If you had added
the name of an episode
and or the actor who plays Jack
or had even said
father jack Hacket
you would have picked up more.*

now we have two ravens in flight,
both Gendo and scabb have released
winged messengers so skeet shooters
out there "PULL!" and answer.

08-24-2002, 05:36 PM
Hey, Gendo guessed scabb's. Not much detail, but then there's only so much detail you can give for a line of badly-translated text from a Sega Mega Drive (aka. Genesis) game.

But what's this? I just added some more detail in a desperate attempt to grab extra points? What's the world coming to? :)

Dunno about Gendo's. Frank Sinatra said it for... some reason? *shrug, random guess* I can hear it in my brain but I have no idea where it's from. :P

Darth Eggplant
08-25-2002, 01:15 AM
Sanspoof 10 points

Huz 9 points.
*3 extra points*
(1 for being noble
and wanting Gendo
to have more points,
and 2 points for
a desperate grab
for more points
I am feeling magnanimous tonight.)

Gendo 9 points.
*4 extra points*
(2 for supossedly guessing
a raven as told by scabb,
and 2 points for releasing
another Raven.
and now we have serious competion
as Sanspoof has to watch out
for a photo finish.)

scabb 4 points

the rest of the GF forum zero

08-27-2002, 04:19 PM
Title: Grim Fandango

Char.: Bowlsley

Creator: Lucasarts

Actor: Keith Szarabajka

Ha ha, I saw it first! Piss-easy points for me! Not really fair on Darth, though, he probably hasn't even got that far in the game. Oh well, piss-easy points for me! Ha ha!

(Oh, and it's not "lethal bell" it's "little bell" Bowlsley's accent, you know?)

08-28-2002, 01:58 PM
sorry to lock you up, comrade (Or is it conrade? Ah, never mind!), but I wasn't really trying to do something in the game, so it don't count. I was just saying something I peiced together. I made loads of Grim Fandango 'scenes' that are either real scenes or different things peiced together to make it seem like something out of GF. I also made my own GF Trailer with the voices of Manny (DUH), Glottis, Eva, Copal, Hector, Bowsley, Gunnar, Slisko, Domino, Meche, Pugsley, Terry and Nick.

And Bowsley's voice is hard to understand. Where's he from? Also, using Scumm Rev, I can rip the 3D Models of the characters and stuff onto a 3D Model thing, and if I get Animation Master soon (For a whopping 200 pounds), I can make my own GF animations...

But this has nothing to do with the game. Anyway, Gendo's points don't count. HAH! But as I'm here, I may as well quote a Raven...


(Oooh... tough one. You have to be a keen player to get this...)

Kind of vague, but I believe it was:

Title: The Princess Bride

Char.: Vizzini

Actor: Wallace Shawn

Creator: William Goldman (The movie was based on his novel, which I've never read.)

Darth Eggplant
09-05-2002, 02:29 AM
Gendo shoots he scores
so he is up to 32 points

*and the book is very funny
because it explains briefly
all the chapters that were omitted
from the original book and why
the modern publishing company
thought to do so.*
*in real life the man as a boy
had the story read to him by his
grandfather; who chose to skip
all the dull stuff, and because the
boy (now the man) never actually
read the book he did not realize
the dull stuff was in it,
and so when he became a father
and his son was ill he killed himself
to find a rare and out of print copy
and gave it to his son to read
whom by the way did not get past
chapter 2; and when the man found out
to his horror that his son did not
like his fav childhood book
and worse suddenly discovered
all the boring stuff
he convinced his publishing house
to reprint it adding the stuff
his grandfather use to tell him,
along with brief introductions
into each chapter omitted or replaced
and why the choice was made.

a prime example of this is when
the bride is chosen for the prince
the queeen sails to the girls home
to meet with her, well that chapter
consists of something like
26 pages describing in detail
the clothes and hats the women
of the time period wore;
and then for 19 pages or more
it described how the queen
went shopping with the girl
for hats and stuff,
not the kind of swash buckling
tale a young boy would like.

another great chapter was the
author's wife (supposedly)
going on in length another
40 odd pages about how clever
this story was
and how clever her husband was
and how lucky you the reader
were getting the chance
to read this book.
and this was right in the middle
of action chapters.

plus there was some funny stuff
that did not happen in the movie
which was a shame cause it was so funny.

anyways now you all know.

read the book if you can.

09-05-2002, 01:58 PM
Hey, now that's not fair, my penalty and Gendo's points, coz I wasn't using that in the game!!! I wasn't actually Quoting a Raven. I was just saying something coz I was bored and I felt like it. I mean, who would be dumb enough to use a GF Raven Quote on the GF Forums??? It's insane!!! I wasn't Quoting a Raven!!!

Darth Eggplant
09-06-2002, 12:44 AM
the fate of your points
is in the hands of the great one,
if he posts and says yes,
thaen you'll get the points back;
but if he says no,
well ....
we shall see

09-06-2002, 06:30 AM
No need for deliberation, I say: cull those points! The joke was very un-funny and all too obvious. However, if see another like it, I will not hesitate to take advantage. Perhaps a new rule is in order?

Darth Eggplant
09-06-2002, 10:19 AM
in agreement
very much like Occam's Razor
the new rule will be
"Sanspoof Goof's"
that is when someone quotes
a Raven when it is obviously
a pigeon's egg from El Marrow.
and further protestation
of the the gaff,
will result in spinning
Ikarian's Wheel
where the Great One
will decide how many
negative bonus points
are lucky contestant gets.

so for the good idea,
2 more points for Gendo
bringing his score to


and Sanspoof only has
8 lives now:D

09-07-2002, 08:36 PM
Title: Robin hood: Prince of Thieves

Char.: Sherrif of Nottingham

Actor: Alan Rickman

Director: Kevin Reynolds

A quip uttered by the Sherrif after offing his righthand flunky (who also happened to be his cousin) after yet another failed attempt by said flunky to usurp Hood's plans. The Sherrif previously been heard to discuss with his unfortunate former lackey his plans to remove Robin's heart with a spoon ("Because it's blunt you idiot, it'll hurt more!") after a run in with the wily Prince in which he came away the loser, sporting an impressive gash on his face.

It's just unfortunate for you I happen to be big fan Alan Rickman. Ha!

Here's one for y'all.

"Eleven out of Ten. Absoludle!"

For some it'll be a piece of piss. For others, much much less piss.

09-14-2002, 08:54 PM
that's a book called The Power of One. I read a while ago so I forgot everything else.

Hows this? "The only difference between Suicide and Martyrdom is press coverage."

Darth Eggplant
09-14-2002, 09:12 PM
your signature could be
a wicked quote in itself.;)
as soon as Gendo chimes in
with an answer I'll update
any points coming to you.

in the meantime a second quote
to make things interesting.
Hey Gendo double or nothing
Trivia Master go for them both:

enhance 34 to 46
pull back
wait a minute
go right
enhance 57 to 19
track 45 left
enhance 15 to 23
give me a hard copy right there

09-14-2002, 11:22 PM
sorry if it's for gendo, but its Blade Runner. Forgot the characters name. It's directed by Ridley Scott. I perferred the directers cut of Blade Runner much better.

ah, yes the up beat song lyrics
of Mel Torme. so glad to see there's
another fan of the Velvet Fog out there.

09-15-2002, 02:05 PM
Cut me outta this game, okay? Remove me and my points.

09-16-2002, 09:24 PM
Velvet Fog? Sorry, I have never heard of them. When did Velvet Fog say this? We will see what was ealier to see who wins.

Mine was Residents Walter Westinghouse on the Fingerprince album of 1976. If yours was before '76, I'll consider myself stupid.

Was Mel Torme a Residents fan or was Residents a Mel Torme fan? We'll just have to see.

your quote sounds familiar
but my head is in velet fog tonight.
how about this quote
in lew of an answer:

"God's Holy Trousers."

09-20-2002, 03:05 AM
Give Jofa his well-deserved points for what I thought would be a head-scratcher for sure. I would also like to score some points off him:


Title: Chasing Amy

Char: Banky

Actor: Jason Lee

Creator: Kevin Smith

Too easy, man. I hated that movie.

09-20-2002, 09:10 PM
Well, I wanted to give one away for all those who were so confused with my Residents quotes or my Palahniuk quotes(that reminds me his new book came out!).

I myself am a huge Kevin Smith fan, and I like Chasing amy. Dogma is my favorite though.....But I digress, I have some more headscratching quotes only known by people of underground music.

"Stand rigid for your next battle.
Peace means reloading your guns.
Love for life is all hatred in disguise.

I have a special Raven to Quote.
like an essay you may wax
as poetically as you can.
this Raven is worth 10 points.
*20* if you can supply the bonus
question attached to it.

ready here goes the quote:

"Quanti Canicula Ille In Fenestra"

bonus: supply it's counterpart.

Darth Eggplant
10-14-2002, 03:14 PM
I thought someone would get this
for sure, I am giving it 72 hours
more and then if not solved
I'm taking the 20 points.

*a hint perhaps 4 elephants & a turtle.*

Darth Eggplant
10-17-2002, 02:24 PM
"Quanti Canicula Ille In Fenestra"
is a Latin phrase
(and a poor one at that)
off the Coat of Arms
for the City of Ankh-Morpork,
the Discworld's largest city.
It's coompanion quote (or Motto) is:
"Merus In Pectum Et In Aquam."

The younger of the two mottoes,
"Merus In Pectum Et In Aquam."
which translates to
'Pure in Mind and Water'
was devised by a rather high minded
committe during the early days
of the first Republic,
and is considered a jolly good joke
by all denizens of of Ankh-Morpork.

The older and strangely
more popular motto is:
"Quanti Canicula Ille In Fenestra"
which translates to
'How Much Is That Small Dog
in The Window?'
this mottoes origin is the subject
of urban legend but it can be traced
back as is the case of so many of the
cities oddities to the reign of
King Ludwig the Tree.

score now stands thus.
