6 is "The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", but none of the others ring particular bells...

Correct!

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of my all-time favorites too, and would probably win for best allusion in the title as well.

Bull Durham was one of the sexiest romantic comedies ever.

I see Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (3), Charade (10--one of Sarah's favorites), and Fargo (9--the word snippy was the giveaway). The romantic one sounds very familiar but I can't call it to mind, and kudos on quoting the BEST line from Say Anything. I love the way Cusack delivers that speech.

hahaha. I thought you would know most of them :) I'm surprised you didn't get 14, though I deliberately chose a difficult quote. You are, of course, absolutely right on the ones you've guessed.

Is it Breakfast at Tiffany's? Probably not, because you don't really like that movie, do you? Is it Sabrina? Could there be two Audrey Hepburn quotations in the same meme?

There could...

Ohohoh! Roman Holiday! (Shame on me, we even own a copy of that.)

Right . . . because she's a princess . . . right . . . and she's used to big rooms . . . right . . . and he's a paltry (but incredibly handsome) reporter . . . right? Is that right?

Yes :) hee. Gotta be one of the most romantic movies... evah.
