What's you favorite line from a movie?

  1. Of course there's the infamous "Go ahead, Make my day!"

    And, "I'll be back" from terminator

    But I really loved this line from a Micheal Douglass/ Gwennyth Paltro movie "THat's not happiness to see me is it?" When MD busts her going to see her lover.

    I also loved "I think you've mistaken me for someone who gives a Shyt." From Dolly Parton in Nine to Five.

    And of course "Luke, I am your father." Darth Vader in Star Wars.

    What lines stick in your head?

    "A man's gotta know his limitations" -- from DIRTY HARRY. Best movie quote of all time!
  5. by   Sleepyeyes
    "That'll do, Donkey, that'll do" -- from Shrek
    :roll :roll

    (which was a takeoff on a line from Babe where the farmer would say, "That'll do, Pig, that'll do.")

    "This $hit is waaaaay outta line. You squirrels better have some nuts in your mouth or your a$$ is going DOWNTOWN!!!"

    From the cult classic Hollywood Knights

    actually there is a bunch of lines from that movie that are my favorites, well when you get right down to it, the whole script is great. But thats my favorie line.

    "Somtime ya just gotta say, What the F%&K!"

    cant forget "That was my skull, I'm soo wasted" from Fast times at Ridgemont High

    "Remember when i said i would kill you last? I lied" rom a Schwartzeneger flick, can't remember the name, had the chic from Who's the boss in it as his daughter

    'It's not so much the speed, but I wish I hadn't drunk the whole bottle of cough syrup." That's from "Stripes"

    "Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?" Mae West to John Wayne, I've forgotten the name of the movie.

    ALL of the lines from Groucho Marx to Margaret Dumont in ANY of the Marx brothers movies "But can't you see I'm in love with you." Stuff like that.

    What a cool idea for a thread!!!

    I thought of another one, although I can't quote it verbatim...it's that LONG quote that Samuel L. Jackson would say before he killed somebody in Pulp Fiction. Something like, " I will strike down upon you with something, and FURIOUS something..." Okay, I totally screwed that up.

    I'm sure I could come up with a million great quotes...I used to be a manager of a movie theatre about 7 years ago.

    Funnniest - "No. Seriously, dude. Where's my car?" -from Dude, Where's My Car

    BEST - when Anikan Skywalker says he's not afraid, Yoda says, "See through you we can." -from Star Wars, Episode I

    Colonel Nathan Jessep (Jack Nicholson) on the Stand
    in "A Few Good Men"

    My favorite line is in bold text, I just thought I'd put the whole scene, since I just copied and pasted it

    Jessep: You want answers?
    Kaffee (Tom Cruise): I think I'm entitled to them.
    Jessep: You want answers?
    Kaffee: I want the truth!
    Jessep: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can 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 my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you 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 to a life spent defending something. You use 'em 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 questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!

    Kaffee: Did you order the code red?
    Jessep: (quietly) I did the job you sent me to do.
    Kaffee: Did you order the code red?
    Jessep: You're ******* right I did!!

    "What we have here is a lack of communication!" from Cool Hand Luke.

    "The secret's in the sauce!" from Fried Green Tomatoes. Also, "Honey, I'm older, richer and I've got better insurance!"

    "Luke, I am your Father." from Return of the Jedi.

    I can't remember anymore right now; but I'll sleep on it tonight.
