Let's make up first drafts of famous lines

"All those moments... will be lost in time... like farts in the wind."

(BTW: CS? Thread games? Mundane pointless? I dunno. Feel free to move.)

It was purely the best of times.

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking nine.

Many years later, as he drank his coffee, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to the DMV.

Happy families are all alike; unhappy families aren't.

The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to PBS.

He had won the victory over himself. He could live under the repressive government of Big Brother.

Love means having to say you're sorry, even when you're not because you didn't do anything you consider wrong, but your partner thinks you did.

Isolate the crime scene, bag the victim and remove him to the autopsy room and tell the medical examiner to do a rush on this one, take fingerprints and bag anything and everything that looks like evidence, and look up the criminal record of everyone at the crime scene. Oh, and take that smoking gun out of Rick's trenchcoat pocket.

Somehow, Toto, I think we are no longer in Kansas.

I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. Hitchcock.

You had me at "How ya doin?"

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. I'm very angry about that.

Mr. Gorbachev, consider asking the East German government to open the gate.

Speak softly and... pack a pistol? have a good team of lawyers? Help me here, people...

Maybe we can.

Houston, that was close but I think we've landed.

Don't ask what the country has for you, get off your butt and do something.

Pay no attention to the man who has to hide in the dark behind a curtain because he suffers from an inferiority complex and a Phantom of the Opera fixation.
