Movie memeage

Just watched Dog Day Afternoon for the first time. It's one of those movies I've seen clips of but never the whole thing. I read up on it on Wikipedia afterward and saw that "Attica!" is on AFI's list of movie quotes. Which reminds me that I was thinking of movies that you could identify by one word.

And thus, a one-word movie quote meme. Some of these go back a ways. ETA: Added the answers to the ones no one had guessed.

Those that have been guessed so far:
1. Serpentine! - The In-Laws (the original)
2. Poppies! -- The Wizard of Oz
3. Precious. -- The Lord of the Rings
4. La-di-da. - Annie Hall
5. Silencio. - Mulholland Dr.
6. Superman. - The Iron Giant
7. Inconceivable! - The Princess Bride.
8. Ditto. -- Ghost
9. Plastics. -- The Graduate
10. Rosebud. -- Citizen Kane

Saw Dog Day Afternoon in an old old, standalone theater (it had a real balcony) on a date when the movie we had planned to see was sold out. Even before I finally saw it again just last year, I could still see Pacino outside that bank. The movie we wanted to see that night? No idea.

#9!!! God, I need to watch that movie again. Huh, I am a fossil - recognize four, three of which are likely the oldest films of the lot.

edits: You have comments screened - you really do want people to guess. (*headslap*).

2 - The Wizard of Oz
3 - LOTR
9 - The Graduate
10 - Citizen Kane

Yep, those are all right! :)

And I had seen clips of Pacino yeling "Attica" but didn't know what that was all about. And all these years, I thought John Cazale (Sal) was the one needing the sex change operation so I was like, "Aha!" when it ended up being someone who looked a little more appropriate for that part!
