Most of my favorite movie quotes aren't really board-appropriate, but here's a few that are:

"This guy's a waste of skin." - Russ Thomson Sr., Honey I Shrunk the Kids

"Blue Steel? Ferrari? Le Tigra? They're the same face! Doesn't anybody notice this? I feel like I'm taking crazy-pills! I invented the piano key necktie, I invented it! What have you done, Derek? You've done nothing! NOTHING!" - Jacobim Mugatu, Zoolander

"Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam." - Buck Russell, Uncle Buck

We never lost an American in space and we're sure as hell not going to lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. (Gene Kranz - Apollo 13)



How's the serenity? ..... so much serenity. (Darryl Kerrigan - The Castle)



The powers that be have been very busy lately, clawing over each other to position themselves for the game of the millennium. Maybe I can help deal you back in.... I didn't realise I was out.... Well, maybe not out... but certainly being handed your hat! (S.R. Hadden talking to Ellie in Contact. Honorable mention also for his "Wanna take a ride???")

Guys, I like the line that George Macready gives as Paul Mireau in "Paths of Glory"; "If those sweethearts won't face German bullets, they'll face French ones!" Macready's breathless delivery and style really made it stick with me....I use it as a signature line on the French Gun and Weapons Forums....since the film was banned in France for many years, and supposedly something like this really happened in the Great War...

Dr. Stranglove is full of memorable lines, but Colonel Batguano and Wing Commodore Mandrake at the phone booth/coke machine was a classic.....

"Who are you, and what's that funny suit you got on?" etc...the phrase "Deviated Pre-vert" was just too much for me the first time I watched this film....

"Yes it's true... this man has no _____" - GhostbustersThat reminds me of one I love but can't ever quote in a conversation, because appropriate contexts to use it in never arise and almost nobody would recognize it because the movie isn't well known. It's from "Brainsmasher: A Love Story", which starred Andrew Dice Clay as a bouncer and co-starred Teri Hatcher before she was famous. He's previously taught an old lady a fighting technique called "the one-two": first a strike to the groin, then one to the head. When they get attacked by Chinese warrior-monks ("not ninjas!"), he reminds her "Granny! The one-two!" and she responds "The one-two!" and smacks one between the legs with her cane while shouting "ONE!... This guy's got no balls!" (It didn't work, so she didn't get to step two.)

Liking little-known movies is a pain in the butt for people who like to conversationally quote movies. I frequently need to remind myself that, when any kind of change in plans is happening, it would be pointless to mimic Michael Douglas's way of saying "Change in plans" in the scene when he first arrives in "The Ghost and the Darkness", because nobody would know what I was doing.

Pretty much everything Otto says in A Fish Called Wanda.

Sample:

KEN: What's goin' on?

OTTO: Well Ken, I'm going to ask you some questions while I eat my chips. First, who was the philosopher who developed the concept of the superman in "Also Sprach Zarathustra" No? That's a chip up the nose I'm afraid. Friedrich Nietzsche. Second, in which book did Nietzsche claim that all higher culture is based on cruelty? Are you thinking or are you in mid-stutter? No? Mm? "Beyond Good and Evil"! I guess I'm gonna have to ask you an easy one huh Ken. OK, ummm, lemme think... ummmmmmmmmm Where are the diamonds?"

OTTO: You English! You think you're so superior don't you? Well you're the filth of the planet! A bunch of pompous, badly dressed, poverty-stricken, sexually repressed football hooligans!"

And since others have already mentioned Ghostbusters:

PETER: "Go get her, Ray!"

RAY: "Gozer the Gozerian? Good evening. As a designated representative of the city, county and state of New York, I hereby order you to cease any and all paranormal activity and return forthwith to your place of origin, or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

PETER: "That oughta do it, thanks very much Ray."

To this day, he still frequently inserts the line into his concerts, sometimes toying with his audience about it when they start requesting it, pretending not to know what they want or not to be sure whether or not he wants to do it.

Captain Kirk is being held by the throat a foot off the floor by a super strong space alien, who is only using one arm to do so:

Kirk: (strangled gargling noise)

Alien: "Your species is even weaker than I anticipated, so pathetic." (Brings Kirk closer so they are nose to nose) "What are you trying to say?"

Kirk snatches the aliens blaster out of his open holster and shoots him in the stomach.

Kirk: "I said: 'I've got your gun'."

Block: A nine, sir.
Benson: Good, it's settled then; we'll send Harley to the front.

There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!

Okay, boss, this LTX-71 concealable mike is part of the same system that NASA used when they faked the Apollo Moon landings. They had the astronauts broadcast around the world from a sound stage at Norton Air Force Base in San Bernadino, California. So it worked for them, shouldn't give us too many problems.

The best statement in Star Trek was made without any words, although it also set up a pretty good line from Dukat explaining it to Weyun, when they had just retaken the station and entered Sisko's otherwise empty office and found it. Weyun, not knowing Sisko as well or recognizing a baseball when he saw one, asked what the thing was, and Dukat answered while looking at the ball instead of at Weyun. "It's a message from Sisko to me: he's coming back."

My Son– …has triumphed.
– - A fortunate young man. – Fortune is ally to the brave.
– What a dangerous precedent.
– What if there are more heroes like him?
– What if courage and imagination became everyday mortal qualities?
– We would no longer be needed.
– But for now, there is sufficient cowardice, sloth…
– …and mendacity down there on Earth to last forever.
– I forbid any revenge against Perseus.
– He has done well.
– He will be rewarded.
– This will make a fine heroic poem, you know.
– Or perhaps a play.
– Oh, don’t worry. I won’t leave you out.
– Perseus and Andromeda will be happy together.
– Have fine sons…
– … rule wisely…
– … and to perpetuate his legend…
– … I command that from henceforth…
– … he will be set among the stars and constellations.
– He, Perseus, the lovely Andromeda…
– … the noble Pegasus and even the vain Cassiopeia.
– Let the stars be named after them forever.
– As long as man shall walk the Earth and search the night sky in wonder…
– … they will remember the courage of Perseus…
– … forever.
– Even if we, the gods, are abandoned or forgotten…
– … the stars will never fade.
– Never.
– They will burn till the end of time.

And when I view the night sky , how often shall I think of these great words as I delight in the stars , and the
legends which inspired them . A treasure for all that enjoy the night sky.

One of my uncles flew with the Carpetbaggers (http://www.492ndbombgroup.com/cgi-bin/pagepilot.cgi?page=492home). They took off the ball turrets, as the fighters couldn't approach from below, and it reduced their clearance when flying over trees and steeples. My father and all my uncles who are ww2 veterans are gone, although I have two uncles who were too young for ww2 who are still alive.

From what I've heard, it was really, really unsafe to be a ball turret gunner. It was also really, really unsafe to be flying bombing missions before fighter escorts. I saw a statistic that USAAF and RAF strategic bombing groups had higher casualty rates than kamikaze squadrons.

Your Uncle in the Carpetbaggers was in the 492nd Bomb Group, they flew in B-24 Liberators which had a retractable ball turret that was drawn up into the fuselage when it wasn't in use otherwise it would have fouled the runway because of the low ground clearance of the B-24. They didn't need to take them off.

Fighters did approach from below, a dive through the formation then a pull up under the aircraft was a fave method of attack. German Night Fighters had upward facing Schrage Musik cannon in the fuselage they would always attack RAF bombers from below as they had no belly turrets and were blind from below.

Howard: Say, answer me this one, will you? Why is gold worth some twenty bucks an ounce?
Flophouse Bum: I don't know. Because it's scarce.
Howard: A thousand men, say, go searchin' for gold. After six months, one of them's lucky: one out of a thousand. His find represents not only his own labor, but that of nine hundred and ninety-nine others to boot. That's six thousand months, five hundred years, scramblin' over a mountain, goin' hungry and thirsty. An ounce of gold, mister, is worth what it is because of the human labor that went into the findin' and the gettin' of it.
Flophouse Bum: I never thought of it just like that.
Howard: Well, there's no other explanation, mister. Gold itself ain't good for nothing except making jewelry with and gold teeth.

Bob Diamond: Being from Earth, as you are, and using as little of your brain as you do, your life has pretty much been devoted to dealing with fear.
Daniel Miller: It has?
Bob Diamond: Well everybody on Earth deals with fear - that's what little brains do.
Bob Diamond: ...Fear is like a giant fog. It sits on your brain and blocks everything - real feelings, true happiness, real joy. They can't get through that fog. But you lift it, and buddy, you're in for the ride of your life.
Daniel Miller: God... my three percent is swimming.

Yes and yes. Not to mention the facts that (1) she was absolutely knock dead gorgeous and (2) the text version does not do either scene justice. You have to see both scenes, not only the way she held herself, but her smoky voice, her look, her whole attitude. I suspect one can find both scenes on Youtube, but I can't search at work.

I saw The Big Chill the other day, after not seeing for many years. I went through a period where I was crazy about the movie; I still really like it, and think it has held up pretty well.

A line I've used myself:
[Michael enters the kitchen, sees Sarah standing in front of the open refrigerator]
Michael: You know, that's the problem with these things. You have to watch them every minute.

One scene I always found very funny had Nick up very late watching some old movie on TV. Sam comes in and asks what the movie is about. Nick says "I think the guy in the hat did something terrible" and they show the shot of the movie and there are like 20 guys on the screen, all wearing hats.

And then, in a scene I can't explain on CQ, there is Meg's line "I feel like I just got a great deal on a used car".

There are a whole bunch of really poignant lines too:

Chloe: I don't know. We had some good times. I haven't met that many happy people in my life, how do they act?

Michael: Amazing tradition. They throw a great party for you on the one day they know you can't come.

(One of the reasons for the name change is that the column is still going after like four years.) In the comments, a bunch of people all said they thought he was wrong and that it was a terrible movie . . . except for "this one line." Naturally, all the exceptions were different lines.

It's a silly story done seriously...or maybe the other way around...and that can be difficult to pull off. Ben Stiller has kind of worn thin for me, but I can still enjoy him in this movie.

"Prepare the virgin"? I don't like the sound of that.
Let's just hope they're not referring to you.

Now let me tell you something, Streebeck. There are two things that clearly differentiate the human species from animals. One, we use cutlery. Two, we're capable of controlling our sexual urges. Now, you might be an exception, but don't drag me down into your private Hell.

Basically, it burns the eyes, lungs and throat, causes vomiting and if continuously inhaled, death.
Oh, sort of like your aftershave.

I was rewatching that movie the other day, and three things struck me. First, the scene where Joe and Pep go looking for a working pay phone in Los Angeles. (That park where they're sorting Emil Muntz's garbage is MacArthur Park!) Second, the fact that there's a scene in downtown Los Angeles where the smog is so thick you can't make out any details past a couple of blocks--the air in LA may not exactly be good now, but it's much better. Third, premium gas is seventy-five cents a gallon.

"You know the kinds of things that can fall into an industrial sausage press? Not excluding rodent hairs and... bug excrement?"

"I hate you Streebeck".

That movie is an odd one, because it is not, by any stretch, good, yet it stays in the memory, kinda like Spaceballs

I'm not sure I'd entirely agree that Dragnet has a good cast. It has Tom Hanks and Harry Morgan, and Dan Aykroyd isn't bad, but most of the cast is either nonentities or actively disagreeable. They just make it work.

Deacon in Waterworld has a lot of great lines.

It's a shame Costner can't act his way out of a wet paper bag, and tried to play the movie straight. Dennis Hopper obviously had a lot of fun.

From a different thread:

It is most certainly to prevent unwanted entry, but not necessarily by barricading. Whichever side the door swings to is the side from which the hinge pins are accessible...

Reminded me of a great line from Ever After. After Leonardo DaVinci frees Danielle from the cell by removing the hinge pins from the door and pulling it out of the frame, he's told he is a genius and will be famous.

"Yes, I shall go down in history as the man who opened a door!"

In Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, the duo are being pursued by the Frankenstein Monster (there: we've already justified the title), and Abbott suggests "Let's barricade the door!" They stack lots of stuff on their side, after which the Monster calmly opens the door from his side, reaches in and scatters their barricade.

In Carry on screaming a door is barricaded with furniture to keep out the 'Monster'. One of the items used is a cupboard that was hiding a hole in the wall (made earlier in the film) next to the door that the Monster walks through.

Not a movie quote, but my favorite anecdote about the Marx Brothers.

http://www.harpomarx.net/anecdotes.html


Such was MGM chief Irving Thalberg's hectic schedule that even VIPs were often obliged to wait many weeks for an appointment - not to mention many minutes (or hours), on the "million-dollar bench" in Thalberg's anteroom, for the actual meeting.
When the Marx Brothers moved from Paramount to MGM in 1935, they arranged to meet with Thalberg at ten o'clock one morning. They arrived on time, waited several hours, were told to come back the next day at two o'clock, and left. Though they did meet with Thalberg the next day, he was an hour late. "Now, look, Mr Thalberg," Groucho said angrily, "we've been stars in three Broadway shows, in Vaudville and in motion pictures. When we have an appointment we are accustomed to having it kept. Yesterday we waited four hours and finally left. Today we were kept waiting an hour. In the future, don't ever call us unless we can see you at the appointed hour."
Thalberg apologized and promised to be more responsible. At the Marx Brothers' next meeting, he had them ushered into his office at the appointed time but was soon called away on urgent business. "Okay, let's show him," Harpo suggested. The brothers agreed and, after pushing Thalberg's filing cabinets against the door, climbed out through the window and left.
Sure enough, at their next meeting, Thalberg was right on time but was called away on urgent business once again. This time Harpo got some potatoes from the commissary kitchen and Chico and Groucho built a roaring fire in the office fireplace. When Thalberg returned, he found his visitors sitting by the fire roasting potatoes - completely naked! "Wait a minute, boys," he playfully ordered - and promptly had the commissary deliver some butter for the potatoes. He never walked out on the Marx Brothers again.
