    This.....is my BOOM stick!



    Say hello to my little friend!



    She's gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.



    It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.



    Why do you wear that stupid bunny suit?

    Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?



    You are such a f@ckass!

    Did you just call me a f@ckass?! You can go suck a f@ck!

    Oh, please, tell me Elizabeth, how exactly does one suck a f@ck?!



    and it isn't "Luke, I'm your father" it's:



    "No, I am your father!"

    ....and it's not "play it again sam" it's "play it"



    mrs. van hopper: most girls would give their eyes for the chance to see monte!

    maxim de winter: wouldn't that kind of defeat the purpose?

    bunge, are you hoarding all your "repo man" quotes or can't you decide which one?

    There's a difference.




    Is there any chance we can stop talking about this? This thread would be much better if we all posted great lines from films we?ve seen and then argued about their respective merits, nein?



    Can we do that? Can we can we can we?

    Ripley: i say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. that's the only way to be sure.



    Hudson: f*ckin' a...



    Burke: ho-ho-hold on one second. this installation has a substantial dollar value attached to it.



    Ripley: they can BILL me.




    Don't forget the Hudson line somewhere before that:



    "Maybe you haven't been keeping up with current events, but we just got our a$$es kicked!"



    Great passage, though!



    ...can't wait until Aliens gets its re-release in theaters! CAN'T WAIT!!!





    Since no one has mentioned it, yet, there's that one from Ripley:



    "Did IQ's just drop rapidly while I was away?"



    If I had been in that room at the same time, I would have busted up and hi-fived her.



    (I don't own one DVD, yet, but when that re-issue comes out, that will be my first DVD purchase, period.)

    i just woke up, and Stand By Me is on home box office.



    "Mighty Mouse is a cartoon. Superman is a real guy."

    I'm sure there'll be more, but that one really struck me.

    has brando been represented yet?



    terry : it wasn't him, charley, it was you. remember that night in the garden you came down to my dressing room and you said, "kid, this ain't your night. We're going for the price on wilson." you remember that? "this ain't your night"! my night! i coulda taken wilson apart! so what happens? he gets the title shot outdoors on the ballpark and what do i get? a one-way ticket to palooka-ville! you was my brother, charley, you shoulda looked out for me a little bit. you shoulda taken care of me just a little bit so I wouldn't have to take them dives for the short-end money.



    charley: oh I had some bets down for you. you saw some money.



    terry: you don't understand. i coulda had class. i coulda been a contender. i coulda been someone charley, instead of a bum, which is what i am, let's face it. i'm a bum. it was you, charley.



    on the waterfront







    steiger always resented brando because they did brando's one shot first and steiger stayed in the scene reading the lines and reacting off camera, he really felt brando feeding off his energy.

    when it came time for steiger's one shot, brando wouldn't stay and a stand in read brando's part off-camera. steiger went to his grave hating brando.



    brando reminds me of sinatra, incredible talent but had no trouble mailing it in, problem was even mailing it in they're better than most.

    Yeah. He thinks using netflicks makes him a cinephile.



    And then he thinks just watching a lot of films (well, a lot to him) entails knowing what makes certain films good.



    Anyway, "game over man, game over!" certainly is a 'great movie line.' It fulfills perhaps the primary qualification: precisely conveying in one line the expression of an emotional experience that everyone can relate to. And that's why it's now fully burned into the cultural consciousness, which, of course, is one of the other qualifications.



    One rule I've learned through actually studying film: film snobs tend to be those confused by all the moving pictures and sounds. It's always great watching them get confused or see things that aren't there when it actually comes time to write that paper on a particular film.



    And another great line (from Major Payne): "Fee, Fi, Fo Fum. What beanstalk you fall from?"



    But that's great just because I love it.

    I just remembered this one, from F&L:

    "The question mark was emphasized." Said by Raoul, about the unspoken scribbling on a napkin:

    "Back Door Beauty?"



    I think this one, from a great Kubrick is pretty good:

    "Shoo' me. Shoo' me." -charlie



    thinking of kubrick, Jack's "Heeeeeere's Johnny" i think meet's giants requirements for movie quote greatness.

    major payne from all outward appearences should be a hideous movie, but i sat down and watched it (an edited tbs airing, no less) and i was in stitches, my wife watched me and watched part of it with me then left the room in disgust.

    it is a guilty pleasure.



    yes and kudos to scott for his sig.



    strangelove is rich with quotables and great characterizations, but george c. scott steals the movie for me:







    General "Buck" Turgidson: Mr. President, we are rapidly approaching a moment of truth both for ourselves as human beings and for the life of our nation. Now, truth is not always a pleasant thing. But it is necessary now to make a choice, to choose between two admittedly regrettable, but nevertheless *distinguishable*, postwar environments: one where you got twenty million people killed, and the other where you got a hundred and fifty million people killed.



    President Merkin Muffley: You're talking about mass murder, General, not war!



    General "Buck" Turgidson: Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks.







    and there are tons more

    Looking at the various quotes...I'd almost agree with him. Many quotes seem jokingly submitted. Some absolutetly great contemporary films are quoted, like the Shawshank Redemption, but that particular movie's greatness was in the story, cinematography, and not the almost kitschy dialogue.

    There's got to be some good quotes from Bladerunner, too. (I'm terrible at this. I can recall where good quotes are, but I can never remember the exact wording.)
