The Best Lines From A Movie
Favorite Dialogue From the Flicks

 6:12 pm on Sep 1, 2007 (gmt 0)

We seemed to have a rash of quotes, expressions and sayings going on at the present. Thought I would add one more to the pile.

Your favorite "lines" from some of the classic movies.

Post no more than three so everyone can get a shot!

My three:

" Go ahead, make my day!"... Dirty Harry

" Frankly my dear, I dont give a damn "... Gone With the Wind

" Who are those guys?"...Butch and the Sundance Kid.

OK, your next...KF

The Matrix Reloaded:
Merovingian: Yes, of course. Who has time? Who has time? But then if we never *take* time, how can we have time?

Blues Brothers:
Joilet Jake:
(At the Chez Paul restaurant, talking in fake foreign accent): How much for the little girl? Your women - how much for the women? The little girl your 2 daughters, sell them to me, SELL ME YOUR CHILDREN!

Reservoir Dogs
(edited by me off course as to not offend)
Nice Guy Eddie: C'mon, throw in a buck!
Mr. Pink: Uh-uh, I don't tip.
Nice Guy Eddie: You don't tip?
Mr. Pink: Nah, I don't believe in it.
Nice Guy Eddie: You don't believe in tipping?
Mr. Blue: You know what these chicks make? They make ....
Mr. Pink: Don't give me that. She don't make enough money that she can quit.
Nice Guy Eddie: Let me get this straight: you don't ever tip?
Mr. Pink: I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job.
Mr. Blue: Hey, our girl was nice.
Mr. Pink: She was okay. She wasn't anything special.
Mr. Blue: What's special? Take you in the back and (say hello)?
Nice Guy Eddie: I'd go over twelve percent for that.

From Man Facing Southeast [washingtonpost.com]:

Psychiatrist's Boss:
Look at this newspaper report, Patient from asylum takes baton and directs Beethoven at a public concert. What next? Nutcase seizes barracks and orders an attack?

I think that one's already happened.

Another from Eliseo Subiela [imdb.com] about a man in love with a woman whose heart is as dark as his:

... it doesn't matter to me one bit if a woman has breasts like magnolias or raisins; skin like a peach or sandpaper.

I give zero importance to whether they awake with breath that is an aphrodisiac or reeks like insecticide. I am perfectly able to cope with a nose that would win first prize at a carrot contest.

But one thing I can never forgive, under no circumstance, is if a woman cannot fly. If they cannot fly they are wasting their time trying to seduce me.

At this point the character reaches over to a button on a nightstand and the woman beside him in bed is dumped through a trap door.

No I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I, I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts. IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD.
John Belushi, The Blues Brothers

"Or see you hanged at Judge Parkers convenience,..Which will it be?"... Rooster

" I call that brave talk for a one eyed fat man!"... Ned Pepper

"Fill your hand, you son of a bitch!"...Rooster

The rest is cinema history...KF

The Astronaut Farmer

Charles Farmer is in the process of pulling his children out of school to assist with his impending space flight. Mrs. Graham, his son's teacher, is not at all pleased with interruption.

Mrs. Graham: Excuse me, but we're in the middle of a history lesson.

Charles Farmer: I apologize Mrs. Graham, but you're just teaching him how to read history and I'm gonna show him how to make it. You have a good day, hon.

Kind of a corny movie, but the "feelgood" factor is a solid 8+.

The Crow

I knew I knew you, I knew I knew you. But you ain't you, you can't be you. We put you through the window and there ain't no coming back. We killed you dead, there ain't no coming back! There ain't no coming back!

For those who are a bit romantic. I am not sure now, but it used to be one of my favourites. I think sometimes you just grow out of things.

A Walk To Remember

Jamie: Please don't pretend like you know me, ok?
Landon: But I do, I do. We've had all the same classes in the same school since kindergarten. Why you're Jamie Sullivan. You sit at lunch table 7. Which isn't exactly the reject table, but is definitely in self exile territory. You have exactly one sweater. You like to look at your feet when you walk. Oh, oh, and yeah, for fun, you like to tutor on weekends and hang out with the cool kids from "Stars and Planets." Now how does that sound?
Jamie: Thoroughly predictable, nothing I haven't heard before.
Landon: You don't care what people think about you?
Jamie: No.

Coach Bowden in the original of Southern Comfort (he could have been talking about web dev):

Sometimes you got to forget principles and just do what's right

(Though you need to remember the context for the relevance)

Words originally spoken by the real astronauts, subsequently known as the astronauts prayer:

Scott Glenn as Alan Shepard in Right Stuff: "Dear Lord, please don't let me #*$! up."
Dennis Quaid as Gordon Cooper: "I didn't quite copy that. Say again, please."
Glenn as Shepard: "I said everything's A-OK."

From The Boondock Saints:

Connor: [during job training for Rosengurtie Baumgartener, an extreme feminist] The rule of thumb here is...
Rosengurtie: Wait, rule of thumb? In the early 1900s it was legal for men to beat their wives, as long as they used a stick no wider than their thumb.
Connor: Well, can't do much damage with that then, can we? Perhaps it should have been a rule of wrist?

From The Crow:

Eric Draven: [speaking to a morphine junkie and single mother, forcing her to look into a mirror] Mother is the name for God on the lips and hearts of all children. Do you understand? Morphine is bad for you. [He causes the morphine to leave her body, then releases her]Your daughter is out there, on the streets, waiting for you.

There are others from both films, but that'll do for now.
