Movie Quote Quiz

Hudson Hawk: Anna, we're supposed to be saving you.
Anna: I know. I got bored so I saved myself.

Cardinal: Oh, the Pope warned me never to trust the CIA.

George Kaplan: I want to make it up to you, kid. That's why I got you this gig. And to quote the late, great Karen Carpenter, "we have only just begun."

Hudson Hawk: Will you play Nintendo with me?
Anna: I can't think of anyone I'd rather play Nintendo with.

Tommy Five-Tone: I hated cigarettes until I saw my first no smoking sign. Keep off the grass? Let's play soccer. The law I cared for was friendship. I broke that one too, didn't I.

Tommy Five-Tone: That doughnut-hole-eating, son-of-a-bitch, take-it-in-the-ear-for-a-beer, rat bastard.

Anna: In one day - less than one day of planning, and you did it. You started the week by stealing the Sforza and ended by swiping the Codex. What are your plans for the weekend? Hoisting away the Coliseum? Tell me, did the Devil make you do it, or did Darwin and Minerva Mayflower?
Hudson Hawk: Can't we just go back to the kissing part?

Waiter: I am the waiter, sir.
Hudson Hawk: Oh. Very nice. Fettucini con fungi porcinni. Prego. Oh, and bring me a bottle of ketchup, will ya?
Anna: You heard him.
Waiter: Ketchup! Ketchup! Stupid Americanos, always ketchup.

Darwin Mayflower: Listen, Hawk, this might be hard to believe, but I'm just a regular Joe. I just want to be happy. And happiness comes from the achievement of goals. It's just that when you've made your first billion by the age of nineteen, it's hard to keep coming up with new ones. But now, finally, I've got myself a new goal... World domination.

Hudson Hawk: Hey, this doesn't taste like cappuccino.
Anna: Oh. I guess I put too much ethyl chloride in it.

Anna: He's definitely gonna steal the Codex. I can feel it. I'm not sure when.
Cardinal: Attempt to steal, you mean. The vanity in this man Hudson Hawk! The Vatican has foiled the advances of pirates and terrorists. We will not lie down for some schmuck from New Jersey.

Darwin Mayflower: You New York Italian, father-made-twenty-bucks-a-week son of a bitch.

Hudson Hawk: If the Mario brothers weren't New Jersey's third-largest crime family, I'd say, "Kiss my ass." But considering your status, I will say, "Slurp my butt."

Gates: I got a proposition for ya.
Hudson Hawk: Answer's "no," Gates... Even if you bathe.

Tommy Five-Tone: Did I miss anything?
Hudson Hawk: Gates tries to blackmail me, you ask me "Did I miss anything." Gates gets killed, you say "Did I miss anything." I bet you went up to Mrs. Lincoln at the Ford Theatre and said "How was the show? Did I miss anything?"

Darwin Mayflower: I'll torture you so slowly, you'll think it's a career.

Darwin Mayflower: So, Hawkmeister. We've got you clothes, a great hotel and a 250,000 lira per diem.
Minerva Mayflower: That's 200 dollars a day. So he can get a hooker and some tequila? Veto, Darwin.
Hudson Hawk: I guess we see who wears the penis in this family.

Hudson Hawk: How am I driving? 1-800-I'm-gonna-fuckin'-die.

Darwin Mayflower: If Da Vinci was alive today, he'd be eating microwave sushi, naked, in the back of a Cadillac with the both of us.

Continuity mistake: When Tommy and Darwin Mayflower are in the back of the limo, Darwin dives out and the door slams immediately before Tommy has time to catch it. The shot changes to outside the limo and Darwin is just now jumping from the limo. It is not just the same shot from a different angle because this time the door stays open much longer, long enough for the limo to drive out of the shot. From this angle there would have been more than enough time for Tommy to grab the door.

Trivia: The film was a passion project for Bruce Willis for nearly a decade before production. It was based on a character and concept he came up with, with the help of songwriter Robert Kraft. The concept was originally written to be the basis of a semi-comedic song, but Willis and Kraft loved the character so much, they decided to try and adapt it into a feature film. Willis' success with the "Die Hard" franchise gave him the power to get the film made. However, the passion project quickly turned into a nightmare, with creative clashes between Willis and director Michael Lehmann, extensive re-writes being done on-set, and a generally troubled shoot. It ended up being the only film project Bruce Willis received a writing credit for.
