Dropped Quotes (Solution)

by Robyn Speer

This puzzle is a drop quote made of movie quotes that were altered when broadcast on TV.

The drop quote columns are full of asterisks. In an act of double censorship, the altered words are themselves deleted from the drop quote and replaced by asterisks. The check on the altered words is the thinner grid to the right, where you fill in the altered words and phrases in alphabetical order by the movie title (skipping "the" of course).

This second grid, on the other hand, has too many letters to fill it. The remaining letters can form three rows that spell FOUR LETTER WORD AFTER MINCED, and the answer to that that follows the theme of this puzzle is OATH.

The original quotes are:

  • "Go home, jerk off, and that's all you're gonna do." -- Pulp Fiction
  • "Hand me the keys, you fucking cocksucker." -- The Usual Suspects
  • "How about I give you the finger, and you give me my phone call." -- The Matrix
  • "I can smell your cunt." -- Silence of the Lambs
  • "If you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you'd have a diamond." -- Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • "I gave simple fucking instructions!" -- Fargo
  • "I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!" -- Snakes on a Plane
  • "I used to suck dick for coke. Now that's an addiction." -- Half Baked
  • "Lousy human bastards." -- Conquest of the Planet of the Apes
  • "My name is Buck and I'm here to fuck." -- Kill Bill
  • "None of us could stand that son of a bitch." -- Field of Dreams
  • "This is a real fucking gun!" -- Lethal Weapon
  • "This town is like a great big pussy just waiting to be fucked." -- Scarface
  • "We're going to federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison." -- Office Space
  • "We would be cunts. You calling us cunts?" -- The Departed
  • "When this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious shit." -- Back to the Future
  • "Yippee ki yay, motherfucker." -- Die Hard 2
  • "You killed Ted, you medieval dickweed!" -- Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
  • "Your mother sucks cocks in hell!" -- The Exorcist
  • "You see what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass?" -- The Big Lebowski

The replacement words, sorted by movie, are:

  • Back to the Future: STUFF
  • Big Lebowski: FIND ALPS
  • Bill & Ted: BONEHEAD
  • Conquest of the Planet of the Apes: BACKSTABBERS
  • Departed: SLOPPY SLOPPY

  • Half Baked: FEET
  • Kill Bill: PARTY
