Movie Quote Quiz

The Horned King: I presume, my boy, you are the keeper of this oracular pig.

Orddu: It's decided, then. You shall have the Black Cauldron.
Eilonwy: You mean, you'll give it to us?
Orddu: That's not what I said. You weren't listening. We never give anything away. What we do is bargain, trade.
Taran: Well, you'll not have my sword.

Gurgi: If great lord go into evil castle, poor Gurgi will never see his friend again. Nope. Never.

Taran: I'm not afraid of the Horned King.
Dallben: Then you are a very foolish lad. Untried courage is no match for his evil. Just remember that.

The Horned King: Oh, my soldiers... Soon the Black Cauldron will be mine. Its evil power will course through my veins, and I shall make you Cauldron Born... Yes, yes, oh yes! Then you will worship ME! Me... Oh, my soldiers... How long I have thirsted to be a god among mortal men.

Taran: What does a girl know about swords, anyway?
Eilonwy: "Girl"?"Girl"? If it wasn't for this girl, you would still be in the Horned King's dungeon.

The Horned King: My, what a brave, handsome group. A pig keeper, a scullery maid, and a broken-down minstrel. Perhaps it would interest you to see what fate has in store for you.

Taran: For your sake, you'd better be telling the truth.
Gurgi: Gurgi not lie. Not this time.

Creeper: Oh, I'm sorry. I've ignored you. You did come for the Black Cauldron, didn't you? Good. Then climb in! It will only cost you your life.

Eilonwy: Aren't you charming?
Gurgi: And pungent, too.

Eilonwy: Oh, Taran, I'm afraid it'll soon be over for us.
Taran: I hadn't planned it to end like this, Eilonwy.
Fflewddur Fflam: Oh, I wish I'd stayed a toad.

Continuity mistake: When Taran, Princess Elonwy and Fflewddur try to escape from the Horned King's castle, Taran opened the gate by removing the chains. The next shot the gate is closed and chained, the last shot the gate is open again, and the boat is pushed trough by Taran. (01:06:33)
