We took several well-known movie quotes and, using Babelfish, we translated them from English into a variety of foreign languages. Then we took the resulting translations and translated them back into English, with rather interesting results. Try to figure out the lines that we started with.

1. "The life is as a chocolate framework..."

2. "I will be I stop backwards."

3. "If you precede, let us form mean day."

4. "I see people out of order."

5. "We came. We saw. We stepped its donkey."

6. "I am very insane that the hell and me am not taken of gonna it! "

7. "Which we have here, is to be been located a disturbance in connection."

8. "It can only have one."

9. "I possible was have been a candidate!"

10. "I am revenge smirking of Cat."

11. "Fuck me smoothly with a chain mountain range."

12. "I do not know why it this material ground meat helpers call. It makes only fine alone."

13. "Storming has the amusement the castle!"

14. "Obtain its legs that stink out of me, you cursed the dirty modified monkey!"

15. "May is the strength with you."

1. "Life is like a box of chocolates..." ("Forrest Gump")
2 "I'll be back." ("The Terminator")
3. "Go ahead, make my day." ("Sudden Impact")
4. "I see dead people." ("The Sixth Sense")
5. "We came. We saw. We kicked its ass." ("Ghostbusters")
6. "I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it!" ("Network")
7. "What we have here is a failure to communicate." ("Cool Hand Luke")
8. "There can be only one." ("Highlander")
9. "I could've been a contender!" ("On the Waterfront")
10. "I am Jack's smirking revenge." ("Fight Club")
