There's a good one in the new Pink Panther movie, with Steve Martin as Inspector Closeau. In a news conference, Closeau speaking:

"A woman is like an artichoke - you have to do a bit of work before you get to her heart".
Christ you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me.

Sigmund Freud: Wha...?
Socrates: GEEK!

You missed out "We were totally lied to by our album covers". :wink:

which leads to..

Seventh Seal:

Antonius Block: "We must make an idol of our fear, and call it god."


Wayne's World:

Stacy: Well, don't you want to open your present?
Wayne Campbell: If it's a severed head I'm going to be very upset.

and

Wayne Campbell: Garth, marriage is punishment for shoplifting in some countries.


Life of Brian (cut original scene involving shepherds watching their flocks by night):

"Is it A.D. yet"?


The Long Good Friday (London gangster film):

Harold: Alan found him dying. He'd been nailed to the floor.
Jeff: When was this, then?
Harold: Well, it must've been just after you saw him and just before Alan saw him. Otherwise, you'd have noticed, wouldn't you? I mean, a geezer nailed to the floor. A man of your education would definitely have spotted that, wouldn't he?

and

Harold: You don't crucify people! Not on Good Friday!

and (inviting rival gangsters to reveal their plans in the freezer room of an abattoir)

Harold: Verbals or frostbite.


Another Country (Alan Bennet describes his only regret after being forced into exile in the USSR after being caught spying for the Russians).

"I miss the cricket".

Ah, The Long Good Friday.

Harold (on discovering one of his gangster friends had been murdered):

"Colin? Why would someone kill Colin? He never hurt anybody - well, not unless it was necessary of course."

Definitely my favourite gangster film. Much better than the recent mockney ones or those Godfather films like soap operas. :wink:

I like it when the pub gets blown up in front of the American who he doesn't want to find out he's being hit.

Joss Whedon is just a veritable Eden of good quotes.

Like:
"Tact is just not saying true stuff. No thanks." Definitely one I live by.
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

one that I like to use as often as possible from Get Carter (th original 1971 version of course)

"You're a big man, but you're in bad shape. With me it's a full time job. Now behave yourself."
Best regards

Memento has got to be one of my favourite films, just because of all the black humour in it.

Some of my favourite lines:

NATALIE: What's the last thing you remember?
LEONARD: My wife...
NATALIE: That's sweet.
LEONARD: ...dying.

[Leonard finds beaten man in a closet]
LEONARD: Who did this to you?
DODD: What?
LEONARD: Who did this to you?
DODD: ...You did?

From Heathers:
Heather Chandler: Is this turnout weak or what? I had at
least 70 people at my funeral.
Veronica Sawyer:Heather?
Heather Chandler: God Heather! My afterlife is so boring
I have to sing Kumbaya one more time....
Veronica Sawyer: What are you doing here?
Hether Chandler: I made your favorite. Spaghetti. With lots
of oregano. Dinner.
Veronica Sawyer: *wakes up*

Excellent film showing how not to light a cigarette. Not to mention

"Great pate, mom, but I've got to motor if I wanna be ready for that party/funeral"

Zaphod Beeblebrox: You mean they want to arrest me over the phone? Could be. I'm a pretty dangerous dude when I'm cornered.
Ford Prefect: Yeah. You fall to pieces so fast that people get hit by the shrapnel.
Zaphod Beeblebrox: Hey, what is this? Judgement Day?
Arthur: Oh, do we get to see that as well? Terrific!

One of my favourites - from Cool Hand Luke:

(Luke just won a crazy amount of money on a poker hand...)

Dragline: Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
Luke: Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.
Now Hypercaffeinated! Share and Enjoy!
