If you’re a truly devoted fan of film critic Marty Mapes, you may recall reading some devilish end-of-year movie quote contests. Well, he’s back, with 30 quotes from 2002.

We considered setting up a contest, with a fee to enter and winners getting some sort of prize. We also considered selling the answers as a Movie Habit fundraiser. In the end we decided simply to show you the quotes this week and not show you the answers until next week.

Each quote below comes from a 2002 movie. For each one, see if you can identify both the movie and the speaker.
