That's not a question for an annual quiz, but a question with regard to... etc.

Last year I ran a big Doctor Who quiz with a grand prize of a signed picture of Sir Derek Jacobi as Professor Yana/The Master. I was thinking about running something again this year with another grand prize of some sort or other. This time making some changes and going for a more general SF quiz (probably a lot of classic stuff) and maybe adding bits like drabbles, etc.

Anyway, was wondering how many people would be interested in taking part?

(Note. I'm setting this email to open, but the quiz is for people that I know. So any ex-larping, gaming or general friends that I might not have added to my friends list are welcome as well)

Standard movie meme,except for one slightly twist. I've cunningly replaced one of the words in the quote with the word, "pants". 

I.d. the missing word and then the movie.

1 - "Keep your damn filthy pants outta my mouth."
2 - "This thing is much too big to be some lost pants."
3 - "Pants. Very dangerous. You go first." - Asps from Raiders of the Lost Ark, spotted by

[profile] spiraltower
4 - "No one will be seated after the doors are closed. It helps maintain the pants."
5 - "You're just in time to have your pants cut off."
6 - "We've fired nearly 1200 pants sir. About one third of the arsenal only remaining."
7 - "Nobody... nobody trusts anybody now, and we're all very pants... there's nothing more I can do, just wait..." - Tired from The Thing, got by [profile] mfl
8 - "What the hell have you got on your feet? Is that some kind of sick joke? Going around on little pants-like animals with every step? That's just... nasty." - Rabbits from Mirrormask, got by [profile] spiraltower
9 - "All control systems go. Remote control circuits are dead. Escape unit is... Central Control from Pants. Escape Unit circuits are dead!" - The missing word hasn't been spotted yet, but its Thunderbirds are Go, got by [profile] spiraltower
10 - "Patriotism swells in the heart of the American pants."
