BOOMER LIFE 1It was several weeks ago when my husband and I were relaxing with my sister and brother-in-law during a visit to their hometown in Baltimore. Just hanging out on the uncomfortable chairs surrounding the five-foot gate around the Hilton’s still-covered pool one evening. 

“We’re going to need a bigger boat,”the words  blurted out of my mouth during one comfortable conversation lull. “Jaws!” they all yelled. Well, that started a game that went on and on. Calling out one line from a movie (remember movie theaters?) most Boomers and others have seen and seeing who could come up with that picture’s name, often leading to discussions about the scene, the entire film, why the line was memorable. 

So, I thought I’d bring some of that fun to those reading this. No room or time for discussion, but a quick, entertaining game that often leads to a thought process (yes, sometimes we had to dig deep into our memories of the last century to come up with the answer) and a bunch of laughs.

So here we go! I give you the famous line, you come up with the name of the movie. Extra points for recalling who said it and the year. Take a moment to think before you jump to the answer. In addition to the answer, lots of memories may come to mind. In the case of Jaws, when Rick, my husband, and I were dating, we were constantly closed out of theaters and drive-ins (remember those?!) due to capacity crowds the summer of ’75 who got to see the movie before we did.
