    "Buy the ticket, take the ride" - Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
  • Reply 23 of 175
    So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one---big hitter, the Lama---long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

    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...

    Branagh's rendition is classic, with the soundtrack and the soliloquy being in tandem one long crescendo.

    For the chilling evil-ness:

    For the tear-jerking inspiration:

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

    God, I love that movie.


    I do as well.

    Another excerpt from the film (courtesy of IMDB):

    Itzhak Stern: Let me understand. They put up all the money. I do all the work. What, if you don't mind my asking, would you do?

    Oskar Schindler: I'd make sure it's known the company's in business. I'd see that it had a certain panache. That's what I'm good at. Not the work, not the work... the presentation.

    Says a lot about Schindler right there.

    "We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half-full of cocaine and a whole galaxy of multicolored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. But the only thing that worried me was the ether. There is nothing more irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge, and I knew we would be getting into that rotten stuff sooner or later."


    "You better take care of me, Lord. If you don't you're gonna have me on your hands."


    Raoul Duke: I want you to understand that this man at the wheel is my attorney. He's not just some dingbat I found on the strip, man. He's a foreigner. I think he's probably Samoan. But that doesn't matter, though, does it? Are you prejudiced?

    Hitchhiker: Hell no.

    Raoul Duke: I didn't think so. Because in spite of his race, this man is very valuable to me. Oh, shit. I forgot about the beer. You want one?

    Hitchhiker: No.

    Raoul Duke: How 'bout some ether?

    Hitchhiker: What?

    Raoul Duke: Never mind.


    "We can't stop here! This is bat country!"


    "Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop-heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow."


    "Bazooko's Circus is what the world would be doing every Saturday night if the Nazis had won the war."


    I think that was one of my favorite movies. Here's some from another favorite:

    Michael Corleone: If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anyone.

    M.C: You're nothing to me now. You're not a brother, you're not a friend. I don't want to know you or what you do. I don't want to see you at the hotels, I don't want you near my house. When you see our mother, I want to know a day in advance, so I won't be there.

    M.C.: My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a President or senator.

    Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don't have men killed.

    M.C.: Oh. Who's being naive, Kay?

    i think i'll stop now, but there are so many more.

    I knew you'd have some quotes from fear and loathing. That's one of my favorite, I have it on DVD and I had the VHS somewhere...

    i'm going to have to go rewatch fear and loathing, being a big fan of H.S.T. i thought it sucked when i first saw it, but i see it referenced to positively so often around here especially. a friend even bought me the dvd to which i politely accepted it and said thank you, and have never opened it.

    i either love gilliam's movies or hate them, same with depp, i promise myself to watch it this week.

    the book has one of my favorite opening lines "We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold."

    maybe we should start a thread for best opening lines from books....

    "it was the best of times it was the worst of times"

    "call me ishmael"

    "in the beginning god created the heavens and the earth"

    "In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love ? they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

    You people do realize that Fear and Loathing was a book before it was a movie, right?

    On average these are some lame movie quotes.

    I realize it was a book first, but to me the movie came first (I later read the book and was thoroughly confused. What's that say about my mind???)

    Capitaine De Boëldieu:

    ?But why my word rather than the others'??

    Kommandant von Rauffenstein:

    ?The word of a ?Rosenthal?, and of a ?Maréchal???

    Capitaine De Boëldieu:

    ?It's worthy of our own?.

    Kommandant von Rauffenstein:


    La Grande Illusion, Jean Renoir, 1937


    ?How many fingers, Winston??

    ?Today, we celebrate the first glorious anniversary of the Information Purification Directives. We have created, for the first time in all history, a garden of pure ideology. Where each worker may bloom secure from the pests of contradictory and confusing truths. Our Unification of Thoughts is more powerful a weapon than any fleet or army on earth. We are one people, with one will, one resolve, one cause. Our enemies shall talk themselves to death and we will bury them with their own confusion. We shall prevail!?
