Well, I decided to be original and came up with a game.
Consisting of lyrics and quotes from songs, movies, and books, I will give the set of lyrics or the set of quotes each round. Your job is to, from memory or by guessing, find out which the respective lyrics/quotes are from.
Rules

1. You CANNOT use any source material (Wikipedia, IMDb, SparkNotes, Google and other search engines, etc) other than your own brain. Failure to comply causes shame. Getting caught results in instant defeat AND YOU DONT PLAY AGAIN!
2. Changing your answer will disqualify you for a chance at getting a score for the round. Remember, I do lurk. I will know if you change it.
3. Forum and KSZ rules apply. I cant stress this enough.
And finally,
4. In order to play, you have to sign up. In order to join after the start of the game, you must donate 2 PsyBucks.

How To Play

When a round starts, I will list 3 lyrics or quotes. There will be three categories (Only Lyrics, Only Movie Quotes, Only Book Passages). They will be abbreviated as such: OL, OMQ, OBP.
There will be 35 rounds for each category, with 3 matches in each. Every match, the amount of points that can be earned goes up.
Using a formula I developed, and RNG, I will decide who gets what at the end of each match.
Scoring Guide

Score will go by how many you got correct each round. The prizes are as follows:
100PB for first place
75PB for second
50PB for third
A multiplyer is added per win, so you have a chance at 300PB.

I do believe I covered enough. If I'm not clear on something just say so (by PM or post, idc) and I'll try to explain it better.
Let the sign-ups BEGIN!!!

Yes, I know, its been a week, but I do have a life, contrary to popular belief.
I had a list, but I lost it and need to find new ones. I'll have them by the end of the night, and keep in mind, rounds only last 3 days.

We have a MQ round.
MQ: Match 1, Round 1 wrote:
Quote 1
"Did you see that?"
"I didn't see it, I did it!"

Quote 2
"Sam, fate rarely calls upon us at the time of our choosing."

Quote 3
"To be, or not to be..."
*exsplosion in background, Arnold Schrawzenneggar's character lights a cigarette*
"...To be."

Now, each quote is worth a point. I don't expect anyone to get the last one, but I'll give you a hint: The movie is at least 14 years old.
Also, leave a reason as to why you picked the answer you picked. This is to ward off possible invitations to SPAM, and other reasons that are for me to know and you to never find out.

Im just going to say i have no idea so im going to guess. Except i know the second one, :)

First quote: I have no clue

Second quote: Transformers 2 because i distinctly remember it, its my favourite line from that movie.

Third quote: Umm, i thought Terminator but that was the eighties so im going to go with Kindergarten Cop because "To be or not to be" is a popular Shakesperian quote often used in movies. In this case the movie was set in a school, and a school often does plays so. Connect the two and carry the Schwarzennegger and you have Kindergarten cop. ( Ive never seen it im just guessing.)

You got the second one correct, but you are on the wrong track on the last one. Look closely as to how I described it. It was in one of his last movies he said that.

King_Charizard: 1 pt.

TO ANYONE ELSE WHO IS INTERESTED IN PLAYING: This is an open game. If you think you know the answer, give it a shot.

Location: The real question is: What is YOUR location?
Going by my knowledge of one of my favorite actors, Bruce Willis, I'm going to say that Quote #1 is from Live Free Die Hard after Cain flips a car.
Quote #3 sounds familiar, but I probably wouldn't know it.

And that's final!
The scoreboard will now reveal the correct answers.
Scoreboard wrote:
Quote #1: When Cain flips a taxicab, his acquaintince shouts "Whoa! Did you see that?" To which Cain replies "I didn't see it, I did it!"
Quote #2: While Sam Witwicky was trying to reason with Optimus Prime in Transfomers: Revenge of the Fallen, Optimus delivers one of his "one-liner speeches" and says "Sam, fate rarely calls upon us at a time of our choosing."
Quote #3: During the Hamlet scene in Last Action Hero, Arnold Schrawzeneggar's character says Hamlet's famous lines: "To be, or not to be?" After the grenade he threw explodes, he shuts his cigarette lighter, nods, and says "To be."
MQ:
S_T: 1
K_C: 1
Well that was a hard one! I'll try not to stump you guys next time. Prepare for a Song Lyric round in awhile.

I thought it was a fun game, but King_Charizard beat me to #2, which was the only one I knew. Didn't have a clue on the others.

Well, I'm kind of wanting to do a massive overhaul on it, but I forgot what I was going to do. Oh, and now, there is no song lyric category. I'd stump a lot more people than I should. Instead, there will be Move Loglines.
