    You got it, and in under half an hour too. In case it was used in other movies, this was the one I was quoting from.

    once it gets too hard to do this we can take a poll ether to open it up to t.v. series and non-mainstream sci-fi and space genre or keep it as it is. .

    Sorry it took so long to get back. Life got in the way of the Internet again (darn kids & wife! ).
    My quote has been used a few times in SF movies but mine is specifically from a post-apocalyptic one (hint!).

    "Hey! Always remember no matter where you go, there you are"

    And yeah I know its my sig...hehe.

    Nope, keep trying.

    And you are also assuming I would use a sig from such a craptacular movie .

    That's The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension.

    Darn. That was the movie I was going to quote from if I got the chance. Now I gotta think of something new. :-)

    Seee, that's why I said post-apocalyptic since I knew it had been used there and Dr.Who, etc.
    Here's another hint though, the movie came out around the same time as Buckaroo Banzai.

    Time to try again.

    Well, a powersearch on The IMDB with genre: sci-fi, keyword: apocalypse, years: 1980-1987 and no tv series or movies/no direct to video indicates:

    Lifeforce - which I've never heard of but appears quite gratuitous and could be fun and
    The Terminator - which doesn't have that dialog, I'm pretty sure.

    Do I win?

    Fraid not. And that's weird that this movie didnt come up, because I know it was made during those years (narrowed it down for you by 3 years there guys ).

    Just curious. If no one gets it do I win? And do I get to requote if everyone is stumped? We should probably have a ruling on this by OP'er.

    Well, I expanded my search on imdb and got 13 hits (removed the sci-fi genre and tv/video restrictions).

    Some treats I got included GI Joe the movie!

    So I'm going to guess at The Dead Zone (which was on TV the other day and looked kind of cool but I was too busy reading here to watch it)

    Hmmm, that would only be post-Apocalyptic if Johnny hadn't done what he did at the end of the movie .

    Keep trying!

    Post-apocalyptic like Judge Dredd?

    (Eh, well, cant' be worse than any other guess....)

    So here are the movies (1980's post-apocalyptic-like) that I can think of, but I can't put the quote in any of them...

    1984
    Brazil
    Robocop
    The Road Warrior
    Escape from New York (anyone called Snake Pliskin is cool)
    Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
    Def-Con 4 (I actually saw this in the theaters, don't ask)
    City Limits (Austin City Limits!)
    Night of the Comet (only seen bits and pieces)
    Steel Dawn (ugh)

    On reflection, the last 4 give the PA genre a bad name.....

    You forgot Escape from L.A. (which is 99% the same as Escape from New York)

    Jeez, as they say, throw enough pasta at a wall and eventually some will stick . Not including the last 4 one of those is actually correct. Now how about someone narrow it down and give me just one answer?

    Ok, its Beyond Thunderdome.

    Spoken by Pigkiller. I vaugely remember the line now that I've had time to think about it....

    And we finally have a winner folks! YEAH YEAH YEAH
    You even got the character right, impressive. Now I pass the quotation honour onto you, Tzuk Te (clap clap clap).

    Alright, from one of my favorite movies, one I'd most definately have to have on a desert island:


    "OK, so, she's a dog."

    Note - This quote isn't on IMDB....

    Weird...I don't know if anyone has played this or not, but Metal Gear Solid 2 for the playstation 2 has a character named "Solid Snake" or just "Snake' for short. The same character also plays another part (undercover?) and goes by the name Pliskin. I'm guessing they got the names from Escape from New York?

    Umm, That's Ghostbusters. Venkman(?) when the nasty being thing turns his girlfriend into a hell hound IIRC.

    I will always remember that film because I first saw it when it had just been released, on a cross-channel ferry from Oostend to Dover. About 3/4 of the way through the film, it got jammed and melted. It was when all hell started breaking loose in the film and my friends (we were all 12) got very freaked out by it because it felt like the film had "leaked".

    Fun film though.

    Edit: damn me and my waffling

    Ghost Busters it is!

    RichField wins by being first! I guess that's usually how you win....


    RichF its your turn!
