Here is the first clue for this week's WTB quiz. It's one I'm pretty sure most of you will have seen, and I think I've even heard it's a favorite of at least one of you. Definitely a well-known film with several highly honored actors/actresses. Write me directly through Facebook with your guesses.

Person 1: I'm just an untalented old has-been.
Person 2: Were you ever famous?
Person 1: No.
Person 2: Then how can you be a has-been?

All of you are still in it.... Here is the Wednesday clue:

Person 1 (same person 1 as above): Does Jeff know?

Here are two Thursday clues that should totally get some guesses going.

Person 1: Friends?
Person 2: No, we are not friends. I don't take this [bleep] from friends. Only lovers.

(In this one above, it's a different Person 1 than the Person 1 in the two clues given earlier in the week.)

Man: I don't like when somebody comes up to me the next day and says, "Hey, man, I saw your play. It touched me; I cried." I like it when a guy comes up to me a week later and says, "Hey, man, I saw your play... what happened?"

Okay, 5pm and still no guesses. I won't give another quote until tomorrow, but I will say that this is a comedy (but one that isn't silly or pure fluff) and that one of its main sources of humor comes from the same predicament as one of the WTB films of the past few months.

Sorry for the late-ish Friday clues. I think these are dead giveaways, so hurry with your guesses!

From a famous scene in the film:
Man: You know, I could lay a big line on you and we could do a lot of role-playing, but the simple truth is, is that I find you very interesting and I'd really like to make love to you.

And now the 100% "if you don't get it you don't know this movie" quote:
Woman: I miss Dorothy.
Man: You don't have to. She's right here. And she misses you. Look, you don't know me from Adam. But I was a better man with you, as a woman... than I ever was with a woman, as a man. You know what I mean? I just gotta learn to do it without the dress. . .

AGH! This one is bugging me so bad!

Haley said...

Wow that doesn't help at all.

Dan W said...

Sorry, Haley! Actually the second clue is probably far better in terms of being memorable within the movie (a huge laugh moment--at least for me), though both are definitely scenes I completely recognize I in this movie.

I will post a Thursday clue that will add a bit more context, so keep watching... Then Friday I will give it away....

Haley said...

Yep definitely haven't seen it.

Matt said...

Weird. Only the first quote is familiar to me.

Dan W said...

Dang it. Really? Not ringing bells?

I'll wait a bit longer for others to mull it over and then give you another clue later today....

Emily said...

It's ringing very distant bells I can't hardly hear.

Dan W said...

Oh yeah, besides the quotes that I thought were all pretty easy, I've had a couple of songs in the playlist all week that are clues to the film. Tee hee.

Haley said...

I think the only person who has seen this "easy" movie is Dan! Haha.

Matt said...

I bet one of the hint songs in the playlist is "Play me"

But I have NO CLUE what this movie is. Dan just might stump us this week! Fun! Something different!
