forgot about Willy Wonka...

Mr Turkentine: Well I can't figure out just two!

Mrs. Gloop: Save some room for later, Augustus Liebling!

Mrs. Teevee: Rachmaninoff.

Mr Salt: What is this, some kind of funhouse?
Wonka: Why, having fun?

Mrs. Gloop: What a disgusting, dirty river.

Mr. Salt: Stuff and nonsense.
Wonka: No, Oompa Loompas.
Everyone: Oompa Loompas?!?
Wonka: From Loompaland.
Mrs. Teevee: Loompaland? There's no such place.
Wonka: Excuse me, dear lady . . .
Mrs. Teevee: Mr. Wonka, I am a teacher of geography.
Wonka: Oh, well then you know all about it and what a terrible country it is...

Mr. Salt: Snozwangers? Vermicious knids? What kind of rubbish is that?

Wonka: The suspense is terrible. I hope it'll last.

Violet: What is this, some kinda freakout?

Veruca: I want a bean feast!

And the whole movie, basically.

This is a great thread! I must chime in with a few. I hope I'm not reapeating too many.

Fight Club:
-I am Jack's smirking revenge.

Real Genius:
-I want to see more of you around the lab.
-Fine. I'll gain weight.

-Why is that toy on your head?
-Because if I wear it any place else, it chafes.

-Can you hammer a six-inch spike through a board with your penis?
-Not right now.
-A girl's gotta have her standards.

Rounders:
-I feel like Bill Buckner walking back into Shea.

-You were lookin' for that third three, but you forgot that Professor Green folded on Fourth Street and now you're representing that you have it. The DA made his two pair, but he knows they're no good. Judge Kaplan was trying to squeeze out a diamond flush but he came up short and Mr. Eisen is futilely hoping that his queens are going to stand up. So like I said, the Dean's bet is $20.

- Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you ARE the sucker.

Shakes the Clown:
- Are you the clown?
- No, I'm Mary fuckin' Poppins.

- I'm gonna twist your head into a fuckin' balloon animal.

One of my new favorites is one I just saw the other day:

Bringing out the dead.

The title of the movie is a Monty Python quote! Near the beginning, Paramedics resuscitate (sp?) a patient and when they get him to the hospital, the check in doctor or nurse says: "I thought he was dead?"
Nicholas Cage (the paramedic replies "He got better."

ah, a35362, A Lion in Winter OToole and Hepburn at their best. One of my favorite films.

Some more great quotes from it:

"If you're a prince, there's hope for every ape in Africa."

"Of course he has a knife, he always has a knife, we all have knives! It's 1183 and we're all barbarians!"

"Henry's bed is Henry's province, he may people it with sheep if he wishes. Which upon occasion he has done."

"I made Louis take me on Crusade. I dressed my women as Amazons and we rode bare-breasted halfway to Damascus. Louis had a seizure and I damn near died of windburn... but the troops were dazzled."

"Give me a little peace."
"A little? Why so modest? How about eternal peace? Now there's a thought."

One of my favorite lines is from the otherwise totally forgettable _Honey, I blew up the kid_. A baby has been transformed into supergiant size, and is running amok, so to save it they also expand its mother, so this very large mom goes chasing after the baby, and an onlooker says:
"Look at the _size_ of that mother"

others:

"Don't you mean the virgin Connie Swayle?"

"Dodge this"

"Gentlemen, let's broaden our minds... Lawrence?"

"Stacy, we broke up three months ago"
"That doesn't mean we can't still go out"
"Well it does, actually. That's what breaking up is"

"Nobody's really going to be free until nerd persecution ends"

"Hey, you. You get your damn hands off of her"

"You rebel scum!"

"Toe pick"

"MORTAL KOMBAT!" (followed by loud techno music)

"I see that you are speechless... a fine quality in a wife"

"He chose... poorly"

"Don't hurt my mules"


"Suuuuppppeeeerrrrmmmaaaannn"

Narile, it's The Lion in Winter. Sorry for the nitpick, but this is my very favorite movie of all time.
The dialogue is, by far, the best I've heard.

a35362, the line you quote from was my very first sig here.

More quotes from the movie:

"The day those stout hearts band together is the day that pigs get wings."
"There'll be pork in the treetops come morning!"

"Poor John. No one ever says poor John. Why if I went up in flames, no one would pee on me to put the fire out."
"Let's strike a flint, and see."

"You have a gift...for hating."
"You're the expert, you should know."

couldn't let this thread go without puuting this to it.

It's a fact. Sicilians have nigger blood pumpin' through their hearts. If you don't believe me, look
it up. You see, hundreds and hundreds of years ago the Moors conquered Sicily. And Moors are niggers.
Way back then, Sicilians were like the wops in northern Italy. Blond hair, blue eyes. But, once the
Moors moved in there, they changed the whole country. They did so much fuckin' with the Sicilian
women, they changed the blood-line for ever, from blond hair and blue eyes to black hair and dark
skin. I find it absolutely amazing to think that to this day, hundreds of years later, Sicilians
still carry that nigger gene. I'm just quotin' history. It's a fact. It's written. Your ancestors
were niggers. Your great, great, great, great, great-grandmother was fucked by a nigger, and had a
half-nigger kid. That is a fact. Now tell me, am I lyin'?

The best scene in a movie IMO.

"You see, boys forget what their country means by just reading 'the land of the free' in history books. Then they get to be men they forget even more. Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: 'I'm free to think and to speak; my ancestors couldn't; I can, and my children will.' Boys ought to grow up remembering that."

"Just remember this, Mr. Potter: that this rabble you're talking about, they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath?"

"Hellllllp meeeee!! HELLLLLLP MEEEEEEE!!!"

Christopher Walken has the uncanny ability to come into a movie and with one scene, steal the whole picture, just like he did with True Romance above
This is from Pulp Fiction

Your granddad was a Marine and he was
killed with all the other Marines
at the battle of Wake Island. Your
granddad was facing death and he
knew it. None of those boys had
any illusions about ever leavin'
that island alive. So three days
before the Japanese took the
island, your 22-year old
grandfather asked a gunner on an
Air Force transport named Winocki,
a man he had never met before in
his life, to deliver to his infant
son, who he had never seen in the
flesh, his gold watch. Three days
later, your grandfather was dead.
But Winocki kept his word. After
the war was over, he paid a visit
to your grandmother, delivering to
your infant father, his Dad's gold
watch. This watch. This watch was
on your Daddy's wrist when he was
shot down over Hanoi. He was
captured and put in a Vietnamese
prison camp. Now he knew if the
gooks ever saw the watch it's be
confiscated. The way your Daddy
looked at it, that watch was your
birthright. And he'd be damned if
and slopeheads were gonna put their
greasy yella hands on his boy's
birthright. So he hid it in the
one place he knew he could hide
somethin'. His ass. Five long
years, he wore this watch up his
ass. Then when he died of
disentary, he gave me the watch. I
hid with uncomfortable hunk of
metal up my ass for two years.
Then, after seven years, I was sent
home to my family. And now, little
man, I give the watch to you.

Broke into the wrong God damn rec room, didn't yeah!?!?!

You look terrible Mr. Wahuwahturi, you look like a bag of shit stuffed in a cheap suit. Not that anybody could look good under these lights. I can feel them sucking the life out of me, suck suck suck.

It's noon, you must be parched.

Let's get this thing on the hump!

Does Berry Manilow know you raid his wardrobe?

I gotta sleep next to a guy named after a ducks dork.

I didn't like him anyway. He wasn't right...in the head.

We grow copious amounts of ganja, right?

You don't understand, you can never ask me to stop drinking.

He's killed more people than smallpox.



I will worship the movie trivia god who can name all of these films.

Psst...Evilbeth. It's Braveheart.

"It's my island."

My favorite line from the movie was "Bring me Wallace. Alive if possible. Dead...just as good."

-"I was shot twice in the Tribune.

-"I read you were shot five times in the tabloids."

-"It's not true. He didn't come anywhere near my tabloids."

From one of the Dirty Harry movies, when he gets into that plane and starts to take off.

Co-pilot, giving him a funny look: You ever done this before?
Harry, cool as ever: Nope.

Jurassic Park, after Dr. Saddler gets done looking in the 'dino droppings'.

Malcolm: You, uh...You're gonna wash your hands before you eat, right?

And of course, from my fav. movie of all time, Star Wars...

Luke, in a whiny voice: But I was going in to Tosche Station to pick up some power converterrrrs!
--
Vader: I am your father.
--
(In the Special Edition)
Jabba: Why did you fry poor Greedo?

And finally, from Monty Python and the Holy Grail...
Bridge keeper: What...is your name?
Knight (I forgot his name): Sir So-and-so
Bridge keeper: What...is your quest?
Knight: To find the Holy Grail!
Bridge keeper: What...is your favorite color?
Knight: Red...no bl-waaaaaaaaaaaa!

My first post, here I go...

The Last Unicorn
"There are no happy endings, because nothing ends."

"She will remember your heart when men are fairy tales in books written by rabbits."


Mixed Nuts
"Nothing's wrong! Felix and Gracie have dressed the landlord up as a Christmas tree, and now we're going to take him out and leave him on the Boardwalk."
"Now that's a good plan. We'll help."

(I don't think that one's exact.)


When Harry Met Sally...
"I want you to know that I will NEVER want that wagon wheel coffee table."

"I'll have what she's having."


Bringing Up Baby
"Because I just went gay all of a sudden!"

"I was born on the side of a hill!"


The English Patient
"We are the real countries, not the boundaries drawn on maps or the names of powerful men."

"You sing. All the time."

Risky Business: " Joel, get off the babysitter."

Payback: "Stop it, I"m getting misty."
