Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge #2

It's time for the second edition of the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge. If you're not familiar with the challenge, every Tuesday I quote a line from a famous Hollywood movie. Your job "should you decide to accept it" is to identify the line. Each week's winner will receive a free $10.00 Amazon gift card. And you don't have to be first to win. You also don't have to know the answer on Tuesday. You have until Saturday to come up with your answer. Every correct answer will be included in the drawing. On the Sunday following the challenge I will put all the correct answers in a hat, and draw the winner to be posted on Tuesday. It's that simple. Anyone can play. I'm doing this to honor my journey towards publication of my (yet to be sold) YA book series, Hollyweird. I will keep you posted on what's happening with the manuscript as well.


The correct answer to the very first challenge question is: Heathers. "What is your damage, Heather?" The winner of the first challenge is Rachel Smith at Bitten By Books. Congratulations, Rachel. You will be receiving your free Amazon gift card very soon. For those of you who had the right answer but did not win, don't despair--round two of the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge is coming right up. But first...

If you haven't seen the dark comedy, Heathers, starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater you are missing a real Hollyweird movie treat. If you enjoy off beat, dark comedy, you will love this movie. I suggest you add it to your Netflix queue. And for all you Hollywood trivia buffs out there, Here's a little Heathers movie trivia for you:

Did you know the role of Heather McNamara (played by Lisanne Falk) was originally offered to a then 17 year-old Heather Graham. Heather's parents decided against letting her do the role because of the dark subject matter... And check this out: Brad Pitt auditioned for the role of JD (played by Christian Slater) but was turned down because he was considered too nice.

If you have any other Heathers trivia, or personal movie trivia you'd like to share, drop it into the comment section so everyone can see it.

Now it's time for The Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge #2. The second edition of the challenge is a two parter:

In a famous 80s action film the villain utters these foreign words "Schies das fenster."
1)What do these words mean in English?
2)What is the name of the film?

Huh? I told you this week's was going to be harder. But I know some of you movie buffs are all over it already. Isn't this fun? Please share this challenge with your friends and followers. If I can get a large enough number of fans I will up the ante. If you're new to the game there are a few things you will need to do to qualify, and they are:
