A couple of these quotes are slightly off. I think it's I not I've in the Goodfellas quote, for example.

@Mr_Black...Although a couple people voted me down, I see you did change the Goodfellas quote. However, this quiz was published today and it turns out it was created two months before yours:

@moviegoer74 I did change the Goodfellas quote after your suggestion. I also saw that the quiz was published yesterday and a few of the quotes were different. I did search for similar quizzes and couldn't find one, but you're right. I did see that it was created 2 months before mine after I saw it was published yesterday. Thank you.
