We asked the projectfive team to think about their favourite films and to suggest a much loved quote. Although seemingly a simple task, it was more tricky than originally anticipated and certainly got everyone talking. Surprisingly there were some unexpected phrases working their way in to people’s top choices and not-surprisingly, there were some hilarious re-enactments from the greatest classic movies!
After gathering everyone’s choices, we printed these quotes on some orange pencils and started distributing them to our friends. These orange scribble sticks have been progressively working their way in to our clients’ offices and challenging people to try and guess which film they came from.
Some are really obvious, such as “I’ll have what she’s having” and “Aren’t you a little short for a Stormtrouper”. Whilst others are a little more tricky, like “Well, not quite as secret as we’d hoped”.
But, if you’re a film buff, you should have lots of fun trying to guess all the quotes. If you haven’t got any pencils yet, then contact Kerris (Kerris@projectfive.co.uk) and she’ll make sure you get some. Or, if you really can’t wait that long, then here’s a full list of all the quotes:
“I’ll have what she’s having”
“That was the sound of a tool chest, falling down the stairs”
“Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?”
“Just keep swimming, just keep swimming”
“Colour me happy there’s a sofa in here for two”
“I am serious…and don’t call me Shirley”
“Gentlemen you can’t fight in here this is the war room”
“He’s not the Messiah – he’s a very naughty boy”
“There’s a jungle cat in the bathroom”
“Say ‘hello’ to my little friend”
“Do you really want to jump?”
“Right. So, not quite as secret as we’d hoped”
“Guard the boat, mind the tide…don’t touch my dirt”
“Sorry, guys… I gotta see about a girl”
“Do you think that’s air you’re breathing now”
“We’ve had some word that there is some bad red rope licorice circulating in the crowd”
“I’m gonna finish him like a cheese cake”
“You want to be a farmer? Here’s a couple of acres!”
“Who is your daddy and what does he do?”
“Run for it? Running’s not a plan! Running’s what you do, once a plan fails!”

It does pose an interesting question though – if you had to pick your favourite film quote, what would you choose to have printed on an orange pencil?
