You may indeed have heard it there, though I can't speak for that program personally; I first became aware of this title elsewhere.

This was the first and last film for most of the cast and crew members, as I understand, and the film is known by a good half dozen different names. Any of them will do, I have the list right here.

In the not too distant future I'll provide what other clues I can.

The movie was featured in a tenth season episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, with Mike Nelson as host and Bill Corbett as Crow (yes, the quote is from the actual film, not the show), and is listed among the bottom 100 films in the IMDB. Visiting each film's page would be against the spirit of our game, yes, but I don't think it's out of line to just look at a list of titles to see if any jog your memory.

I hate to narrow it down too quickly, but in the interest of keeping the game moving I'll make this a bit easier and reveal that it's in the top fifteen on that list. I guess you could say it's really the bottom fifteen, but the way the list is arranged the worst films are up top, so look at the entries numbered one through fifteen to find your answer.

Seven PM today, my time, will be forty-eight hours since I posted the quote, so if no one gets it by that time tomorrow (the three day limit I believe was mentioned at the start of this thread) I can always just give out the answer and come up with something less oddball, or let the game revert back to Garrett. I haven't played before, actually; has an etiquette developed over these hundred plus pages for dealing with too-obscure films?

Nobody? Ah, dang it, I should have known it was too much. The answer was the many-titled Zaat, a movie I knew first as "Blood Waters of Dr. Z", seen in season ten, episode five of MST3K. The quote I used is from the opening of the film, so if you feel like tracking down a copy you won't have to sit through much of the horrible thing to hear the speech delivered. It really must be heard to be appreciated.

In lieu of that, I'll offer one that I have to believe is a little easier. I'm actually surprised it hasn't surfaced yet, but I searched the thread and it didn't pop up, so away we go:


Deliveryman: "Raul Hernandez?"

Raul: "Yeah?"

Deliveryman: "Got the delivery here for your next show."

Raul: "Oh, great. What you got?"

Deliveryman: "Well, let's see, I got one aardvark, one flamingo, four porcupines, two armadillos, three badgers ... "

Raul: "Badgers? Badgers? We don't need no stinking badgers!"

Strictly speaking, the part of Raul was played by Trinidad Silva, in what became his last role by an unfortunate car accident during production, but that is in fact the correct film, and it was a Weird Al vehicle, so I say you've got it.

Well done, Garrett, looks like it's back to you. Take it away!

Sorry about that people. I've been asleep at the wheel.

Robert, it reverts back to you since I dozed off.

Ok, thanks Chris.

Here's the quote:

"It's giving life that counts. Until you're ready for it, all the rest is just a big fraud. All the crazy haircuts in the world won't keep it turning. Life isn't a love in, it's the dishes and the orthodontist and the shoe repairman and... ground round instead of roast beef. And I'll tell you something else: it isn't going to a bed with a man that proves you're in love with him; it's getting up in the morning and facing the drab, miserable, wonderful everyday world with him that counts."

No more guesses? More clues to come in a little while if no one gets it.
