Just curious to see what other people think...

Yvonne: Where were you last night?

Rick: That's so long ago, I don't remember.

Yvonne: Will I see you tonight?

Rick: I never make plans that far ahead.

no mystical energy field that controls my destiny."

    Well, it's not from a movie per sé, but the Henry V St. Crispin's Day soliloquy is grand...


    From this day to the ending of the world,

    But we in it shall be remember'd;

    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;

    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me,

    Shall be my brother...

    "You're right, I did lose a million dollars last year. I expect to lose a million dollars this year. I expect to lose a million dollars *next* year. You know, Mr. Thatcher, at the rate of a million dollars a year, I'll have to close this place in... 60 years."

    For the chilling evil-ness:

    "For six centuries there has been a Jewish Krakow, by this evening those six centuries are a rumor. They never happened. Today is history."

    For the tear-jerking inspiration:

    "The list is an absolute good. The list is life."

    God, I love that movie.

    The JFK thread plus a new DVD of Stone's movie has got that on my mind, especially Joe Pesci's meltdown as David Ferrie.

    "Who killed the Pres...who did Kennedy...don't you get it? It's a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma! The shooters don't even know!"

    "Who's yanking who's chain? Who the f knows? Everybody keeps flipping sides! It's fun and games, man! Fun and games!"

    From the greatest movie ever made: Ricki Oh, The Story of Ricky

    "Oscar has shown his tattoos, now he must kill!"

    "You've got alot of guts Oscar."

    "Someone paid me 20 lbs of rice to turn you into mince meat and put you in a pie."

    "Would you care for a mint?"

    "She-Gong feeds off strength and grows stronger and stronger, give it a try!"

    Anyone who is a fan of martial arts/prison/gory movies should own this disasterpiece of a movie! Read the Amazon review.

    "the poor dope, he always wanted a pool, well in the end he got himself a pool"

    kilgore - apocalypse now

    Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have more responsibility here than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. I know deep down in places you dont talk about at parties, you don't want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then question the manner in which I provide it. I prefer you said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand to post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!
