Top 5 favorite movie lines .... Can't Post

seeing as we're on a movie kick recently (or more if you can't list just 5) ....

Lt. Aldo Raine: You know how you get to Carnegie Hall, don't ya? Practice.

Sundance Kid: Think ya used enough dynamite there, Butch?

Lt. Col. Bill Kilgore : Charlie don't surf!

Carl Spackler : Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac...It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

Tuco: [trying to read a note] "See you soon, id... " "id... " "ids... "
Blondie: [taking the note] "Idiots". It's for you.

So many memorable quotes, so little time... [In reply to] Can't Post

Here are but a few off the top of my head:

Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore:
"I love the smell of napalm in the morning..."

Rhett Butler: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."

Anton Chigurh: "Don't put it in your pocket. It's your lucky quarter."

Jame "Buffalo Bill" Gumb: "Oh wait... was she a great big fat person?"

French soldier: "I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries."

Please visit my blog...The Dark Elf File...a slighty skewed journal of music and literary comment, fan-fiction and interminable essays.

Carl Spackler! [In reply to] Can't Post

I often mutter "Cinderella kid" as I whack the heads off dandelions.

But of course the best line ever is:

Helen Benson: "Gort. Klaatu barada nikto!"

My family's big on games. Every time we sit down to play one, either my brother or I will say:

Joshua: "Do. you. want. to. play. a. game?" ]

I could probably quote you most of the lines from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "Airplane," and "Galaxy Quest." If I had to pick one from them, it would be:

Fred Kwan: "Wow, the floors are so clean!

I also say these when appropriate:

Margo Channing: "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."

Captain Spaulding: "Hello, I must be going."

The way we imagine our lives is the way we are going to go on living our lives.

Too many good ones [In reply to] Can't Post

but here are a few in no particular order:

You know Rick, I have many friends in Casablanca, but somehow, just because you despise me so much, you are the only one I trust. – Ugate, Casablanca

Louis - I'm shocked, shocked to find out that gambling is going on here!
Croupier - Your winnings, sir.
Louis – Oh, thank you. – Casablanca

Life in a box is better than no life at all, I expect. You could lie there thinking, “Well, at least I'm not dead.” - Rosencrantz, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

That'll do, Pig. - Farmer Hoggett, Babe

You keep using that word; I do not think it means what you think it means. - Inigo Montoya, The Princess Bride

We know. Sit down. – unnamed government official, The Right Stuff.

That's one bonehead name, but that ain't me. - Hy, Raising Arizona

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother... - Henry V

I'll do movie/tv... [In reply to] Can't Post

...as I like quotes in both. And these will be recent, because I really don't feel like going back and looking up stuff I liked a long time ago. And yes, I'm all about the political incorrectness.

BBC Sherlock:
Franklin: I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you (laughs)
Sherlock: That would be tremendously ambitious of you.

Doctor Who:
The House: Fear me. I've killed hundreds of Time Lords.
The Doctor: Fear me. I've killed all of them.

Archer:
Sterling Archer: What? Wait! So I've been treating my cancer with sugar pills?
Dr. Krieger: Yeah, you didn't think it was weird that your chemo drugs were chewable?
Sterling Archer: No! Little kids get cancer.

Star Trek: Into Darkness:
Khan: Your crew requires oxygen to survive, mine does not. I will target your life support systems located behind the aft nacelle. And after every single person aboard your ship suffocates, I will walk over your cold corpses to recover my people. Now, shall we begin?

Hot Fuzz:
Danny Butterman: You're off the f**king chain!

my favorite Doctor Who exchanges: [In reply to] Can't Post

(after it is revealed that the Doctor went back in time & prevented the armaments factory that made Captain Jack's gun from being built on the location of a banana grove - and that the only weapon he carries is a sonic screwdriver):
The Doctor: What are our assets?
Captain Jack: Well, I've got a banana, and in a pinch you could put up some shelves.

The Doctor: Who are you?
Louis XIV: I am the King of France!
The Doctor: Oh yeah? Well I'm the Lord of Time.

The way we imagine our lives is the way we are going to go on living our lives.

To the Faulklands where a southerly gale rips the whole sea white. What we've missed Lucia...what we've both missed. Good-bye m'darling." (Rex Harrison, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir)

I will admit, [In reply to] Can't Post

I saw Casablanca for the first time at a college showing in the 70s and before that moment, I had no clue those famous quotes were actually from a movie. I thought it was just a thing people said all the time.

I also discovered during that time that, at least in the early movies, Groucho's mustache was painted on. For some reason, that really depressed me.

And I was thinking of that Princess Bride quote the other day when a poster at imdb kept (seemingly randomly) inserting 'sic' in parenthesis into his own post (he was not quoting anyone). I really couldn't figure out what he thought it meant.

And I love... "That'll do, Pig." :-)
