      Really good. For 13 I was thinking of The King of Comedy (Sandra Bernhardt delivers the line), and for 34 I was thinking of the diner scene in Hitchcock’s The Birds. But these may not be the only movies where those lines are spoken!

      I also put this game on my Facebook page. Of all the folks responding, you were the only one to get the Wallace and Gromit reference (from “A Grand Day Out”).
