Best Cult Movie One Liners...

Ok I am sure anyone who has spent any decent amount of time on these boards, especially in this forum, has heard thousands of cult movie ‘one liners’.

Case in point:

“My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die…”


We all know where those lines came from, because the movie, now a cult film - that is still up for debate - but there are countless other one liners that some people can incorporate into everyday life.

Historically, the most famous one liner that most people know is: “…It’s alive, IT’S ALIVE!!..” from Frankenstein.

So anyone know any others, maybe some you use in daily life, or at certain moments…

“I’ll be Back” … to check in soon :slight_smile:

“Show me your ass!!”

“Pardon me, while I whip this out”

“I must have something’s flesh!”

the brilliant Richard E Grant in Withnail and I…and yes, I use this expression…


Ash in Evil Dead 2 after customizing his arm to include a chainsaw.

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned for Sega”

Fuck me gently with a chainsaw Heather, who do I look like mother fucking Theresa?!?!




whoops. Didn’t read the OP closely enough. So, one-liners we use in our daily lives?

Wait… I’ll need that…

It’s gone, McReady!

It’s only a model.
and if you don’t recognize them, then I guess they aren’t cult movies to anybody but me…

“I don’t know. I just got here myself.”

And from the 1976 “King Kong:”

“It would be a ghastly situation for the whole congregation.”

“Fargin’ bastages” and “icehole” from “Johnny Dangerously.”

“You stoopid fo¢k! Loook at you now!” from “Scarface.”

(In a Sean Connery voice:)

“Thish one a-grancha, wush not a [whatever situation].” In “The Name of the Rose,” though, the word was “suicide.”

(I can’t say “daily,” but I do use those."

“On the run from Johnny Law. It ain’t no trip to Cleveland.”

“Why is there a watermelon there?”

Actually I may be wearing this one out. I’m starting to get weird looks in the produce section.

Number: you could switch to using “Don’t tug on that–you don’t know what it’s attached to…”

City Slickers
Billy Crystal…“That wasn’t flirting, that was have a pleasant restful evening.”

From Peter Jackson’s Dead-Alive (or Brain Dead), my all-time favorite:

I kick ass for the LORD!

We’re on a mission from God. (In a Chicago accent, so more like “Gahd”.)

These get more use than one might think.
