Oh, and since every time I open this page I get the Buckaroo Bonzai quote, I'm now going to have to go rent it again.

Damn your eyes.
Empusa's crew, so naked-new they may not face the fire,
But weep that they bin too small to sin to the height of their desire,
(Kipling)

I like it, even if no one else does.

David St. Hubbins: "It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None... more black".
This Is Spinal Tap, 1984.
If you've never been on the road with a band, you laugh all the way through this movie because it's all so ridiculous.

There's another great line when Nigel the guitarist is asked what he would have done for a living if he hadn't become a rock star and Nigel sais: 'Haberdashery'.

I almost quoted that line but I wasn't sure if it originated with Buckaroo Bonzai or was stolen from somewhere else.

I'm not certain where it actually originated, but the first place I ever ran across it was in Buckaroo Banzai, so I guess it'll do as the source.

"Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me"
Julius Caesar (Kenneth Williams) on his impending murder in Carry on Cleo
Our Flyer,
Who drink in heaven,
FSM be thy name,
Thy ketchup come,
Thy sauce be done,
On earth as it's served in heaven.
Give us this day our garlic bread,
And forgive over cooked Tagliatelle,
As we forgive those who serve it to us.
And lead us not into takeaways,
Who deliver pizzas so evil.
For thine is the pasta, al dente cooked spaghetti.
For breakfast and dinner,
RAmen

There’s a great part in the documentary A Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica showing Metallica and Spinal Tap backstage at a Freddie Mercury tribute concert when Michael McKean, holding a copy of the self-titled Metallica album, IRC, asks James Hetfield where they got the idea to do a cover that was black-on-black. Hilarious.

Funnily enough, Freddy Mercury (Frederick Bulsara by birth) was a Zoroastiran, who believe that the world will be purged of evil by a tidal wave of molten metal. That rocks!

From the Dark Knight: "Why so serious?"

From the 1989 Batman: "Where does he get those wonderful toys?"

Both uttered by the same character, but different actors.

It's impressive but more of an action than a line! And which movie did it come from....

FSM be thy name,

Thy sauce be done,
On earth as it's served in heaven.
Give us this day our garlic bread,
And forgive over cooked Tagliatelle,

If this was actions rather than words, I would definitely say the bit from The Dark Knight where The Joker makes a pencil disappear.
