Favorite movie quotes...
Posted by M G (+200) 13 years ago
Share your favorite movie quote.
Maybe an old standard that we all can recognize, like;
"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." or "Go ahead, make my day."

Maybe one that you thought was funny, like;
"Them syreens did this to him. They loved him up and turned him into a horny toad." or "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

Or something deep like;
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

Following up on what Julie said, just about any line uttered by Madelyn Kahn in a Mel Brooks movie - and Paper Moon, too. The tricky part is, it was usually Madelyn's dead-pan delivery that made the lines classics. Hence, it would do no good to list them here.

I gotta vote for almost every line in "So I Married An Axe Murderer" Far too many to list. Followed very closely by almost every line in "Caddyshack" We've all quoted lines from that movie thousands of times. And if you can watch the entire movie without throwing up a little in the back of your throat and turning it off, almost all of "King Pin" in hilariously funny. Some of the funniest lines ever. Like "10 frames? Thats for Quakers. We Amish bowl 15 frames a game" That's brilliant funny.

In honor of the late Ricardo "Khan Noonien Singh" Montalban, I submit the Greatest Verbal Exchange in the History of Cinema (Queso Fantastico division):

From Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan -

James T. Kirk (William Shatner): "Khan, you bloodsucker! You're going to have to do your own dirty work now, do you hear me? Do you?!"

Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Montalban): "Kirk! Kirk, you're still alive, my old friend."

Kirk: "Still! Old! Friend! You've managed to kill just about everybody else, but like a poor marksman you KEEP ... MISSING ... THE TARGET!"

Khan: "Perhaps I no longer need to try, Admiral.

Kirk: "Khan. Khan, you've got Genesis. But you don't have me! You're going to kill me, Khan, you're going to have to come down here. YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO COME. DOWN. HERE!"

Khan: "I've done far worse than kill you. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on ... hurting you. I shall leave you as you left me, as you left her. Marooned for all eternity, in the center of a dead planet. Buried alive ... buried alive (echoes) ..."

Kirk (using the best angry face ever): "KHHHHAAAAAAAAN! KHHHHAAAAAAAAN! (echoes) ..."

And sticking with the sci-fi theme ...

From Aliens -

Ripley (Sigourney Weaver): "How long after we're declared overdue can we expect a rescue?"

Hicks (Michael Biehn): "... 17 days."

Hudson (Bill Paxton): "17 days? Hey, I don't mean to rain on your parade but we're not gonna last seventeen hours! Those things are gonna come in here just like they did before! And they're ... they're gonna come in here ..."

Ripley: "Hudson ..."

Hudson: "... and they're gonna come in here and ... AND THEY'RE GONNA KILL US!!!"

Ripley: "HUDSON! This little girl survived longer than us with no weapons and no training. Right?"

Hudson: "Why don't you put her in charge?"

From Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back -

Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher): "I love you."

Han Solo (Harrison Ford): "I know."

From V for Vendetta (not really sci-fi, but a great movie, nonetheless) -

V (Hugo Weaving): "I can assure you I mean you no harm."

Evey (Natalie Portman): "Who are you?"

V: "Who? Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask."

Evey: "Well, I can see that."

V: "Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is."

Evey: "Oh. Right."

V: "But on this most auspicious of nights permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona. (V throws back his cape.)

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition! [He slashes a large V through a propaganda poster.] The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. [giggles] Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me 'V'."


Evey: "Are you, like, a crazy person?"

V: "I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking?"

Evey: "I'm Evey."

V: "Evey? E-V. Of course you are."

And my favorite quote from my favorite movie (just replace "Adam Sutler" with "Dubya") ...

V: "Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine- the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, thereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent. Last night I sought to end that silence. Last night I destroyed the Old Bailey, to remind this country of what it has forgotten."

V For Vendetta

V: People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
Evey: And you're going to make that happen by blowing up a building?
V: The building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols are given power by people. Alone, a symbol is meaningless, but with enough people, blowing up a building can change the world.
Evey: I wish I could believe that. But every time I've seen this world change, it's always been for the worse.

I remember I was dragged kickin' and screamin' to "V for Vendetta" - but I ended up lovin' it and now I remember why.

I also remember arriving at the conclusion about halfway thru that V's big secret is that HE was actually a woman, and that Evey (E V) was a code to something else -- but I can't remember what. Anyone else care to share their thoughts (perhaps I should have started another thread - feel free to do so - I'm goin' to bed now).

One movie that had a TON of great movie quotes was...GOOOOOD MORNING VIETNAM!!!!

some examples:

"Dickerson: This is not military issue, airman. What sort of uniform is that?
Adrian Cronauer: Cretan camouflage sir. If you want to blend in with a bunch of drunken Greeks there's nothing better.
Dickerson: That is humor. I recognize that. I also recognize your brand of soldier.

[imitating Walter Cronkite]
Adrian Cronauer: I just want to begin by saying to Roosevelt E. Roosevelt, what it is, what it shall be, what it was. The weather out there today is hot and sh***y with continued hot and sh***y in the afternoon. Tomorrow a chance of continued crappy with a p***y weather front coming down from the north. Basically, it's hotter than a snake's a** in a wagon rut.

[Lt. Steven Hauk uses Army jargon to refer to a press conference to be given by former Vice-President Nixon]
Adrian Cronauer: Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P.

Edward Garlick: From a Marine in Da Nang: "Captain Hauk sucks the sweat off of a dead man's b***s." I have no idea what that means, sir, but it seems very negative to me.

Adrian Cronauer: You are in more dire need of a b***j*b than any white man in history.

General Taylor: "More dire need of a b***j*b than any white man in history." That's funny.

Sgt. Major Dickerson: [Pointing to his rank insignia] What does three up and three down mean to you, airman?
Adrian Cronauer: End of an inning?

Sgt. Major Dickerson: You're not gonna last long here, pal.
Adrian Cronauer: You can always send me back to Crete.
Sgt. Major Dickerson: Oh, you think this is a joke. I can come up with alternatives other than Crete and I'm real good at stuff like that. I got people stuck in places they haven't even considered how to get out of yet. You don't think I can come up with something good? Can you envision some fairly unattractive alternatives?
Adrian Cronauer: Not without slides.

Adrian Cronauer: Mayday! Mayday! Dragon-Lady with incredible figure at 11 o'clock! Stop the car.
Edward Garlick: I can't do that, sir.
Adrian Cronauer: Aw, Edward, you don't understand. I've been on a small Greek island with a lot of women who look like Zorba, I never thought I'd find women attractive ever again. And now that I do, you won't even turn the car around? Thanks a lot.
Edward Garlick: You have a very important meeting with the top brass...
Adrian Cronauer: -Oh, there she is again! How did she get ahead of us?
Edward Garlick: That's another person, sir.
Adrian Cronauer: She's beautiful and quick. Speed up, check her stamina. Oh my God, they're quick, they're fast, and small. Ha, ha, ha, ha! I feel like a fox in a chicken coop!

[the audience response to Hauk replacing Cronauer on the radio]
Staff Sgt. Dreiwitz: Sir, these letters are unequivocal! Uh, e.g.
[reads a letter]
Staff Sgt. Dreiwitz: "Hey, Hauk. Eat a bag of s**t. You suck." Now that's pretty much to the point, sir, not much gray area in this one.

Adrian Cronauer: [On Lt. Hauk] In the dictionary under "a**h**e" it says "See him."

Lt. Steven Hauk: Sir, the man has got an irreverent tendency. He did a very off-color parody of former VP Nixon.
General Taylor: I thought it was hilarious.
Lt. Steven Hauk: Respectfully, sir, the former VP is a good man and a decent man.
General Taylor: Bulls**t! I know Nixon personally. He lugs a trainload of s**t behind him that could fertilize the Sinai. Why, I wouldn't buy an apple from the SOB and I consider him a good, close, personal friend.

Adrian Cronauer: Five months in Vietnam, and my best friend is a V.C. THIS WILL NOT LOOK GOOD ON A RESUME!

General Taylor: Lieutenant, you don't know whether you've been shot, f**ked, powder-burned or snake-bit.

Adrian Cronauer: Goooooooood morning Vietnam! It's 0600 hours. What does the "O" stand for? O my God, it's early! Speaking of early, let's hear it for that Marty Lee Drywitz. Silky smooth sounds, making me sound like Peggy Lee...

Adrian Cronauer: Here's a little advice: Never eat in a Vietnamese restaurant next to a pound.

Adrian Cronauer: What is the difference between the Cub Scouts and the military? Bzzzzzt! Cub Scouts don't have heavy artillery!

Edward Garlick: No, Phil, he's not all right. A man does not refer to Pat Boone as a beautiful genius if things are all right.

Edward Garlick: We got one letter from a man who thought that Hauk's comedy was "visionary and interesting." The other eleven hundred calls say that the man can't do comedy to save his d**k!... That's a direct quote, sir.

Adrian Cronauer: I can't even make fun of Richard Nixon, and there's a man who's screaming out to be made fun of."

Yeah, I know this is a long entry...kinda makes the point about this movie having so many awesome quotes, though...I may watch it again later tonight!

Norma Rae-Sally Fields

Reuben Warshowsky: On October 4, 1970, my grandfather, Isaac Abraham Warshowsky, aged eighty-seven, died in his sleep in New York City. On the following Friday morning, his funeral was held. My mother and father attended, my two uncles from Brooklyn attended, my Aunt Minnie came up from Florida.
Also present were eight hundred and sixty-two members of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers and Cloth, Hat and Cap Makers' Union. Also members of his family. In death as in life, they stood at his side. They had fought battles with him, bound the wounds of battle with him, had earned bread together and had broken it together. When they spoke, they spoke in one voice, and they were heard. They were black, they were white, they were Irish, they were Polish, they were Catholic, they were Jews, they were one. That's what a union is: one... Ladies and gentlemen, the textile industry, in which you are spending your lives and your substance, and in which your children and their children will spend their lives and their substance, is the only industry in the whole length and breadth of the United States of America that is not unionized. Therefore, they are free to exploit you, to cheat you, to lie to you, and to take away what is rightfully yours - your health, a decent wage, a fit place to work. I would urge you to stop them by coming down to room 207 at the Golden Cherry Motel, to pick up a union card and to sign it... It comes from the Bible - according to the tribes of your fathers, ye shall inherit. It comes from Reuben Warshowsky - not unless you make it happen.

Wall Street-
Carl Fox: Stop going for the easy buck and start producing something with your life. Create, instead of living off the buying and selling of others.

Gordon Gekko: The richest one percent of this country owns half our country's wealth, five trillion dollars. One third of that comes from hard work, two thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons and what I do, stock and real estate speculation. It's bullpoop. You got ninety percent of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create nothing. I own. We make the rules, pal. The news, war, peace, famine, upheaval, the price per paper clip. We pick that rabbit out of the hat while everybody sits out there wondering how the hell we did it. Now you're not naive enough to think we're living in a democracy, are you buddy? It's the free market. And you're a part of it. You've got that killer instinct. Stick around pal, I've still got a lot to teach you.

1. "I don't know. Part of me thinks the kid's right. He asks what he's done to deserve this. He wants to stay here, fine. Let's leave him and go home. But then another part of me thinks, what if by some miracle we stay, then actually make it out of here. Someday we might look back on this and decide that saving Private Ryan was the one decent thing we were able to pull out of this whole godawful, s****y mess. Like you said, Captain, maybe we do that, we all earn the right to go home."

6. Customer: Hi, do you have the song "I Just Called To Say I Love You?" It's for my daughter's birthday.
Barry: Yea we have it.
Customer: Great, Great, can I have it?
Barry: No, no, you can't.
Customer: Why not?
Barry: Well, it's sentimental tacky crap. Do we look like the kind of store that sells I Just Called to Say I Love You? Go to the mall.

7. Rob: Why'd you have to tell her about the store?
Barry: Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know it was classified information. I mean, I know we don't have any customers, but I thought that was a bad thing, not like, a business strategy

8. Debi: So, is there a Mrs. Mysterio?
Martin Q. Blank: No, but I do have a very nice cat?
Debi: Not the same.
Martin Q. Blank: Well, you don't know my cat, it's very demanding.
Debi: It? You don't know if it's a boy or girl?
Martin Q. Blank: I respect its privacy.

While this isn't a movie quote (it comes from an ESPN College Gameday advertisement from a few years ago), it remains one of my favorite exchanges -

Football fan - "What's my hot dog made out of?"

Chris Fowler - "It is what it is, through and through."

From "Field of Dreams"

Ray Kinsella: Fifty years ago, for five minutes you came within... y-you came this close. It would KILL some men to get so close to their dream and not touch it. God, they'd consider it a tragedy.

Dr. Archibald "Moonlight" Graham: Son, if I'd only gotten to be a doctor for five minutes... now that would have been a tragedy.

**********

Archie Graham: (After ducking two pitches) Hey ump, how 'bout a warning?
Umpire: Sure, kid. Watch out you don't get kilt.

**********

Terence Mann: Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

Peter Gibbons: Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late, ah, I use the side door - that way Lumbergh can't see me, heh heh - and, uh, after that I just sorta space out for about an hour.

Bob Porter: Da-uh? Space out?

Peter Gibbons: Yeah, I just stare at my desk; but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch, too. I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.

Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

From "Saving Private Ryan" One of the best reality checks in Cinematic History. The squad has gone completely insane; threatening to quit, mutiny, shoot their prisoner, or shoot each other.

Captain Miller: "Upham, what's the pool on me up to?"

Upham: "Wha . . . ?"

Captain Miller: "The pool? What's it up to? (And then) I'm a schoolteacher. I teach English composition... in this little town called Adley, Pennsylvania. The last eleven years, I've been at Thomas Alva Edison High School. I coach the baseball team in the springtime. Back home, I tell people what I do for a living and they think well, now that figures. But over here, it's a big, a big mystery.

Horvath: "Well I'll be damned."

Captain Miller: So, I guess I've changed some. Sometimes I wonder if I've changed so much my wife is even going to recognize me, whenever it is that I get back to her. And how I'll ever be able to tell her about days like today. Ah, Ryan. I don't know anything about Ryan. I don't care. The man means nothing to me. It's just a name. But if... You know if going to Rumelle and finding him so that he can go home. If that earns me the right to get back to my wife, then that's my mission.

(Then to Private Reiben) You want to leave? You want to go off and fight the war? All right. All right. I won't stop you. I'll even put in the paperwork. I just know that every man I kill the farther away from home I feel.
