So many of these I should've figured out, but had no idea at the time.

I cannot believe I missed the Galaxy Quest one! I could almost hear it in my head. In my head, it sounded like Tony Shalhoub. Which of course it wasn't, but you see that I was close.

I thought maybe the one about the whales was Star Trek, but "the hell" didn't sound like anything anyone of that ilk would say. I forgot about the whole "attempting to swear to blend in" aspect.

Ugh... I'll join the outcry of "how did I miss THAT?" Baron Munchaussen, Dark Crystal and Fallen. Should have got those at least. Not to mention the minor mistakes of attributing quotes to other actors in the movie.

The Fallen one and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind were so familiar... but when I looked in my memory... nothing.
