Movie Quote Quiz

Peoples Hernandez: This is Egyptian Cotton, motherfucker... two-twenty thread. That's like half your shitty-ass paycheck, okay?
John Shaft: You wouldn't know Egyptian cotton if the Pharaoh himself sent it to you, you knockoff-wearing motherfucker.

Peoples Hernandez: Stick to what I know? Stick to what I know? I'm a star. Yo soy el mayembe.

John Shaft: You know me. It's my duty to please that booty.

Peoples Hernandez: Yo Shaft, I'm gonna put so many lawyers in your ass, you're gonna think they opened a branch office up there.

John Shaft: I know cats who'd take out whole zipcodes for that kind of cheese.

John Shaft: April Fool, motherfucker. Told you not to make me run.

John Shaft: I see you someplace I don't think you belong... I will kill you.

John Shaft: I'm gonna fuck you up for making me run.

Factual error: In the scene where Shaft has chased the guy running from the drug bust and caught him in the hall with an empty gun you can plainly see the slide is locked back on the bad guy's pistol (indicating an empty magazine). When Shaft steps out to arrest him (before the bad guy jumps out of the window into the other building) you can clearly hear the 2 clicks of a firearm hammer falling on an empty chamber. With the slide locked back, the hammer is locked back also...it would never make any clicks.

Trivia: In the scene where Shaft first calls Rasaan reminding him of owing a favour, the song playing in Rasaan's apartment is one by Sean Paul. Rapper Busta Rhymes (Rasaan) and Jamaican artist Sean Paul have featured on several of each other's songs.
