So the rules are (thanks to Kate Gregory and Deusovi for these):
1. The numbers separated by colons indicate the number of occurrences of each letter of the alphabet in the quote (the first being A and the last being Z).
2. The numbers in parentheses indicate the length of each word in the quote, along with punctuation.
3. The second line indicates the initials of the actor/actress attributed with the quote alongside the year of the release of the movie containing the quote.
