Favorite quote from a movie?
or quotes from movies? I've got to go with Eddie Dane (J.E. Freeman) in "Miller's Crossing" and "Because if you told me and I killed you and you were lying I wouldn't get to kill you *then*. Where's Leo?" I'm such a romantic.

And you?

1. Good Night and Good Luck...
"Had Senator McCarthy looked just three lines earlier he would have found this: "The fault dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves..."

4. "Say, any of you boys smithies?"
Edited on Wed Feb-08-06 10:28 AM by Richardo
"Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'? "

33. The Coens write such great quotes...
I could spend all day just coming up with ones from The Big Lebowski alone. And another day for Miller's Crossing.

Instead, here's a good one from Raising Arizona:

(Nathan Arizona giving a report to the police) "They're jammies! They've got Yodas and shit on them!!"

19. That's adapted from Alice Roosevelt Longworth.
One of history's most quotable figures.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Lee_Roosevelt_Longwo...

"Of her quotable quotes, her most famous found its way to a pillow on her settee: 'If you haven't anything nice to say, come sit by me.' To Senator Joseph McCarthy she stated that the garbage men, taxi drivers and street sweepers in her neighborhood could call her by her first name, but that he could not."

7. from North Dallas Forty
Maybe not my favorite but the radio just said it's Nick Nolte's birthday.

Phil Elliott: Jo Bob is here to remind us that the biggest and the baddest get to make all the rules.
Charlotte: Well I don't agree with that.
Phil Elliott: Agreeing doesn't play into it.

10. The one I've stolen the most is from Raiders of the Lost Ark:
Said by Indy after he and Marion are safe aboard the ship and she's tending to his wounds. Stolen by me whenever someone comments on me being slow to stand up, complaining over creaking bones, or what have you:

"It ain't the years, it's the mileage."

11. Do you want to live forever?
Conan the Barbarian (1982) ~ Valeria: Do you want to live forever?


From the same movie:

Mongol General: We have won again. That is good! But what is best in life?
Mongol Warrior: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcon on your wrist, wind in your hair!
Mongol General: Wrong! Conan, what is best in life?
Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women!
Mongol General: That is good.

17. Almost any quotation from "Election" entertains me
Tracy Flick: It's like my mom says, "The weak are always trying to sabotage the strong."

Paul Metzler: I sure was surprised the day Lisa Flanagan asked me for a ride home and ended up blowing me.

Tammy Metzler: If you died right now, I would throw myself under one of my Dad's cement trucks so I could be poured into your tomb.

And of course that "one last thing you should know about Tracy Flick is a doozy"

27. THAT can be arranged . . .
The three musketeers (remake 1993)

Cardinal Richelieu: Oh, you're so naive. Things couldn't be more perfect if I planned them myself. The King of France dies at the hands of his own personal guard. Grief stricken, terrified, the hudled masses turn for comfort to their devout spiritual leader who, ever so humbly, assumes the throne. With the Queen by his side.

Queen Anne: I would rather die!

Cardinal Richelieu: That can be arranged!

(Richelieu played by Tim Curry.)

"The Lion in Winter" is a treasure trove of great dialogue. :-)

31. The Dane is great, isn't he...
You're so goddamn smart. Except you ain't. I get you, smart guy, I know what you are. Straight as a corkscrew. Mr. Inside-Outsky. Like a goddamn bolshevik, picking up your orders from Yegg Central. You think you're so goddamn smart. You joined up with Caspar. You bumped Bernie Bernbaum. Down is up. Black is white. Well, I think you're half smart. I think you were straight with your frail and queer with Johnny Caspar. And I think you'd sooner join the Ladies' League than gun a guy down...so we'll see...we'll go out to Miller's Crossing and we'll see who's smart.


Best homosexual gangster since Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet.

32. "See, you're Mr. Lebowski, I'm the DUDE, man!"
"So that's what you call me. That or his Dudeness or El Duderino if you're not into the whole berevity thing."

Also:


The Dude: I dropped off the money exactly as per... look, man, I've got certain information, all right? Certain things have come to light. And, you know, has it ever occurred to you, that, instead of, uh, you know, running around, uh, uh, blaming me, you know, given the nature of all this new shit, you know, I-I-I-I... this could be a-a-a-a lot more, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, complex, I mean, it's not just, it might not be just such a simple... uh, you know?

The Big Lebowski: What in God's holy name are you blathering about?

The Dude: I'll tell you what I'm blathering about... I've got information man! New shit has come to light! And shit... man, she kidnapped herself. Well sure, man. Look at it... a young trophy wife, in the parlance of our times, you know, and she, uh, uh, owes money all over town, including to known pornographers, and that's cool... that's, that's cool, I'm, I'm saying, she needs money, man. And of course they're going to say that they didn't get it, because... she wants more, man! She's got to feed the monkey, I mean uh... hasn't that ever occurred to you? Sir?

37. I'm currently torn between "Blue Velvet" and "Young Guns II"
(which is wrong on so many levels!)

Blue Velvet

Frank Booth: "Do me a favor, neighbor. Don't be a good neighbor anymore to my Dorothy. I'll send you a love letter! Straight from my heart, fucker! You know what a love letter is? It's a bullet from a fucking gun, fucker! You recieve a love letter from me, and you're fucked forever! You understand, fuck? I'll send you straight to hell, fucker!"

Young Guns II

Josiah Gordon "Doc" Scurlock: You son of a bitch! You're starting to believe what they're writing about you, aren't you? Let me tell you what you really are! You rode a 15 year old boy straight to his grave, and the rest of us straight to hell... straight to hell! William H. Bonney! You are *not* a god!
(cocks his gun and points it at Billy)
William H. Bonney: Why don't you pull the trigger and find out?
