Stand By Me
Movie Quote Quiz

Mr. LaChance: Why can't you have friends like Denny's?
Gordie: Dad, they're okay.
Mr. LaChance: Sure they are. A thief and two feebs?
Gordie: Chris isn't a thief.
Mr. LaChance: He stole the milk money at school. He's a thief in my book.

[Gordie is dreaming about Denny's funeral.]
Mr. LaChance: It should have been you Gordon.

Teddy: Look. You guys can go around if you want to. I'm crossing here. And while you guys are dragging your candy asses half-way across the state and back, I'll be waiting for you on the other side, relaxing with my thoughts.
Gordie: You use your left hand or your right hand for that?
Teddy: You wish.

Ace: All right Chambers, you little faggot. This is your last chance. What do ya say, kid?
Chris Chambers: Why don't you go home and fuck your mother some more?

Eyeball: So, uh, what's with you and this Connie Palermo chick?
Billy Tessio: I've been seeing her for over a month now and all she'll let me do is feel her tits.
Ace: She's a Catholic, man. They're all like that. You wanna get laid, you gotta get yourself a Protestant. Jew's good.

Vern: Geez, Gordie, why couldn't you have gotten breakfast stuff like Twinkies, Pez and Root Beer?
Gordie: Sorry, Vern. I guess a more experienced shopper could have gotten more for your seven cents.

Billy: I bet you a thousand dollars they find him before that.
Charlie: I bet you two thousand dollars they don't.
Bill: Well asshole...
Ace: Will you two just shut the fuck up? If either one of you assholes had two thousand dollars I'ld kill you both.

Vern: This isn't funny. What am I supposed to eat?
Teddy: Why don't you cook your dick?
Chris: It'd be a small meal!

Vern: If I can only have one food for the rest of my life? That's easy. Pez. Cherry flavored Pez. No question about it.

Teddy: Oh Billy! I think I just turned my fruit of the looms into a fudge factory!

Other mistake: Teddy's hair changes in every shot after being dunked in the swamp. The strap to his bag disappears and reappears as well.

Trivia: During the production of Stand By Me, director Rob Reiner did not want the film to be called The Body (the same name of the short story by Stephen King). He believed that if he did, people would confuse it with a documentary on body building, a porno film or another Stephen King horror novel. It was changed to Stand By Me because while thinking of a title, it was considered to be the least unpopular name.

Chosen answer: Its a game called three-penny-scat. I'm not 100% on the rules, but I think you get three cards, take the value of them (Royalty =10) and whoever gets closest to thirty wins. According to the book, it's one of the most boring games invented but "it was too hot to think about anything more complicated".

Answer: The goal is to get two point cards and an ace, all of the same suit to make 31.That's when you can call "Scat" and win the hand. The player with the lowest value loses the hand.
