“Philippe Moyez killed a goat.”
– Devil’s Advocate, as delivered by Keanu Reeves.
With his panhandle accent and odd matter-of-fact emphasis, I can never unhear this line. Sometimes it comes to me like how I imagine schizophrenia must be.

Everybody knows the popular movie quotes, Star Wars, et al. But what are the lesser known off beat lines that stick in your head, not so much because of the content of the quote, but owing to the delivery?
