  • Big Brother 08/09 - Week 9

    Welcome to Buffy Forums Big Brother 2008/2009 Week 9. In this thread, you can chat, discuss, enjoy the the house, go for a swim, jump in the jacuzzi etc, etc. I'd prefer it, unless I say otherwise, that you don't contact other contestants via PM/MSN/Yahoo etc about Big Brother related topics. (Obviously, you can still PM/MSN/Yahoo etc. on non-related BB topics, but I'd rather all BB talk to go here.

    Please keep checking the first post (I.E. This one) regularly, as I will be updating it all the time, with deadlines, and who has gained immuinity, who is up for eviction, etc.

    Movie Quotes

    I want which movie the quotes are from AND which character says them

    31. Hey, you created me. I didn't create some loser alter-ego to make myself feel better. Take some responsibility!

    32. Yeah. And who's to say they're wrong? You see, years ago, something happened up there. Something not very nice.

    33. Oh, yes. What was it you said to me before? "Yippie-ki-yay, mother****er."

    34. What a beautiful child. So young, so alive, so unaware of how precarious life can be. I had a very sad childhood, I'll tell you about it sometime. I never knew my parents; it's amazing I'm sane.

    35. THEY DO NOT! At the feedstore do I say, "Oh, now Wally, give me a bag of that F-in' pig feed, and a pound of that bitchly cow corn"? At the bank do I say, "Oh, Mrs. Malenger, here is one big bastard of a check, now give me some of your Christ-ing money!" THERE, LOOK THERE, NOW SEE WHAT YOU MADE ME DO!

    36. It - it's just... all right, Tuesday night is tofu night, and I'm asking myself "Who here decided that everyone likes tofu in the first place, and what is tofu anyway?" And why can't I have bacon? I line up every morning, and I'm not allowed any bacon for my breakfast. And - and tell me - let's talk about all the white. Why is everyone wearing white all the time? It's impossible to keep clean, I'm walking around, I get - I always get the gray stripe, I never get any color, and I hand it in to be cleaned, and - and someone cleans it and fold it neatly back in my drawer, but who? Who is that person? I don't know. I just - I wanna know answers and I - and I wish that there was more.

    37. Hey, are you watching this movie? Not too funny. 'Course at 36,000 feet, you can't just up and walk out of the theater, can you?

    38. You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition's given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Starling? And that accent you've tried so desperately to shed: pure West Virginia. What is your father, dear? Is he a coal miner? Does he stink of the lamp? You know how quickly the boys found you... all those tedious sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars... while you could only dream of getting out... getting anywhere... getting all the way to the FBI.

    39. Even if I wanted to go my schedule wouldn't allow it. Four o'clock, wallow in self pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one. 5:30, jazzercize. 6:30, dinner with me. I can't cancel that again. 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing; I'm booked. Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9 I could still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear?

    40. Here goes: I sped. I followed too closely. I ran a stop sign. I almost hit a Chevy. I sped some more. I failed to yield at a crosswalk. I changed lanes at the intersection. I changed lanes without signaling while running a red light and *speeding*!

    41. Somebody up there has got it in for me. I bet it's my mother.

    42. Gretchen, I'm sorry I laughed at you that time you got diarrhea at Barnes & Nobles.
    [beat]
    And I'm sorry for telling everyone about it.
    [beat]
    And I'm sorry for repeating it now.

    43. Lisa, whatever female-driven, emotion-based dilemma you may be dealing with right now, you have my sympathy. But for the sake of time and sanity, let's break this down into a little male-driven fact-based logic. One simple phone call saves your dad's life.

    44. I just don't think that Brooke could've done this. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't.

    45. Where'd you get your clothes... from the... toilet store?

    General

    46. What is the most common Element on Earth ?
    47. If I take 2 apples out of a basket containing 6 apples how many apples do I have
    48. A woman has 5 Potatoes to feed 3 children how can she give them equal portions without fractions ?
    49. Occurs Once in a minute Twice in a week and once in a year what is it ?
    50. Who was known as ‘Old Blue Eyes’
    51. Simplify 7 -6 x 4 + 3 / 2 - 7 = X ?
    52. Who was the goddess of Love in Roman Myth?
    53. Name 4 sources of renawable energy ?
    54. What are the 5 senses in the human body ?
    55. What year did the Berlin Wall come down ?
    56. Which Presidents does Forest Gump meet in the film ?
    57. What date comes 22 days after June 19th ?
    58. Name all of Henry VIII's wives, in order. ?
    58a. And how they died.
    59. Who painted the mona lisa?
    60. Which is the strongest Muscle in your body ?


    The winners are the team to correctly answer all the questions the quickest. (If no-one gets every one right, it will be the team with the most correct. In the event of a tie, the team who handed their challenge in first, win.)

    Chose a team captain between you, that team captain will be the one to hand in the challenge, as I only need one from each group

    Have fun and you have four days. Your deadline is 3rd January 09 - 6:00pm GMT

    There wont be a HOH this week

      You'll get your reward, don't worry Just...not this week. You just want to hope you don't get evicted this week...

          But no-one gets immunity this week...unless you win this weeks challenge!

          But technically, you got immunity last week from being evicted. Fair enough, two members didn't hand in their challenge, but if they had you would have been immune.

                      OMG, Hannah, I just think I found your answer key. I was looking around for an answer key and found a ten question "General Knowledge" quiz with 10 questions, and those questions are these questions. Um...did you mean to do this?

                      (btw, one of your answers is wrong )

                        You thought I was going to make up entire questions myself?

                        Well it looks like I'm going to HAVE to!

                        *huff*

                        One of my answers aren't wrong, I just changed it.
