Best Movie Lines

Postby anickels on Tue Oct 21, 2008 11:03 am

Just wondering what everyone's favorite movie lines are. Mine would either be the "Flaming Homeless Guy" comment in Cloverfield or the whole Star Wars conversation in Clerks. Or...

Leia: Han! I love you!
Han Solo: I know.

Classic.

So many good ones..

-I love in Hunt For Red October when Sean Connery says "One Ping Vasily, One Ping Only" I don't know why. And when the dude dies he says "I would have liked to have seen Montana" all dramatically.
-In The Sandlot when the one kid says "You're killing me Smalls". I say that to people and they have no clue what I'm talking about.
-In Almost Famous, the character based on Cameron Crowe finally gets Billy Crudup's character to sit down for an interview and he asks "What is it you love about music?" and he answers "To begin with, everything".
-In Saved! two characters, Cassandra and Roland see the pregnant character, Mary, coming out of Planned Parenthood. The following conversation ensues: Cassandra: There's only one reason Christian girls comes down to the Planned Parenthood.
Roland: She's planting a pipe bomb?
Cassandra: Okay, two reasons.
That line always cracks me up.
-Stop using Jesus as an excuse for being a narrow minded bigot.
-Music was her life, the lyrics were her story.
-Be careful what you say, it may remind me of a song that needs to be sung.
-GOT JESUS? I thought you had him....shit!
-Why do people with closed minds always open their mouths?
-My pit bull is my co-pilot.
-To err is human; to ARRGGHHH is pirate!
-Why do we kill people who kill people to show people that killing people is wrong?
-Well behaved women rarely make history.
-Laughter: When a smile has an orgasm
-I'm not so good at the advice; can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

"You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means."

"You're trying to kidnap what I've rightfully stolen. "

"You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha..."

One of the best movies for good quotes ever.

Fly casual.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

Fixed. If you're going to quote TPB around me, get it right.

Let's see, how about...

I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

I drink your milkshake!

Hell, I'll kill a man in a fair fight... or if I think he's gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there's a woman, or if I'm gettin' paid - mostly only when I'm gettin' paid. But these Reavers... last ten years they show up like the bogeyman from stories. Eating people alive? Where's that get fun?

Nothing in his pockets but knives and lint.

And my personal favorite movie:

Andy crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit smelling foulness I can't even imagine, or maybe I just don't want too. Five hundred yards... that's the length of five football fields, just shy of half a mile.

Get busy livin', or get busy dyin'. That's goddamn right.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Yes! That is pretty good.

Classic.

That line was improvised, you know.

Anyway, my favourite line is probably the one in my signature. I also like the speech Comissioner Gordon gives about Batman at the end of TDK.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

That's pure class. I love the way the unfortunate bounty hunter returns ans says 'I had to come back' and Clint says 'I know'.

I've got to go for a pirate one so I'll pick:

'Them's that dies will be the lucky ones'
Robert Newton in Treasure Island.

I couldn't find that clip but here is Newton in action...it's what the Pirate Board is all about:

"The only thing I didn't like about Santa Clara is all the damn vampires."

CLASSIC.
Kaylee: Wash, tell me I'm pretty.
Wash: If I were unwed, I would take you up in a manly fashion.
Kaylee: 'Cause I'm pretty?
Wash: 'Cause your pretty.
(Wash and Kaylee, Firefly, Heart of Gold)

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today


(Broken Hearts Parade - Good Charlotte)

It's 104 miles to Chicago, we have half a tank of gas, a full pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.

Must submit a correction here:

"Hit it."

I concur, I also love the way Gene Wilder gets so mad at the pronunciation of his name:

I am not a Frankenstein. I'm a Fronkensteen.


and:

[Frankenstein, Igor and Inga in front of HUGE castle doors]
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What knockers.
Inga: Oh, thank you doctor.
