good..bad...i'm the guy with the gun

Oh! Something fun after something depressing and morbid.

An immortal comment from Michael Caine in The Italian Job has been named the greatest one-liner in cinema.

Movie fans say the Caine's classic pay-off: "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off" is the top screen line.

The poll was taken in Britian, which explains the Michael Caine thing.

The top ten lines were:

Top 10 Film lines:
1. "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off" - The Italian Job;
2. "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" - Gone with the Wind;
3. "We want the finest wines available to humanity, we want them here and we want them now" - Withnail and I;
4. "You talkin' to me?" - Taxi Driver;
5. "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" - Apocalypse Now;
6. "I'll have what she's having ..." - When Harry met Sally;
7. "All my life I wanted to be a gangster" - Goodfellas;
8. "I do wish we could chat longer. But I'm having an old friend for dinner" - Silence of the Lambs;
9. "Infamy, Infamy, they've all got it in for me" - Carry on Cleo;
10. "He's not the Messiah - he's a very naughty boy" - Life of Brian.

BBC Radio also did an opposing poll:

Andie MacDowell's cringeworthy "Is it raining? I hadn't noticed" from Four Weddings and a Funeral was voted the worst line.

I think we can come up with something better than Michale Caine, no? Have at it. (Best or Worst lines, doesn't matter)

as seen on MeFi, which is the place to go when you want to think about something besides war.l


Oh c'mon...NOTHING from a sci-fi film? nothing from star wars? who can pass up such classic lines like:

"i got a bad feeling about this"
"i'd rather kiss a wookie"
"i am your father"

or at LEAST a classic line from Arnold...

"i'll be back"

good lord people....

on a positive note, i'm glad Monty Python made it in there.

For my money, it's a screaming shame this classic from Better Off Dead wasn't on the list:

"Gee, I'm real sorry your mom blew up, Ricky."

No, no, no. The all-time greatest line in film is "Truly, you have a dizzying intellect."

I know I am old fashioned, but one of my favorite all time lines was Bette Davis saying, "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night."

Good grief, the Python movie lines alone should fill the Top Ten:

"I fart in your general direction."
"You mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberries."
"Rewease Bwian!"
"I'm French, why do you think I have this outrageous accent, you silly king."
"Bring out your dead!"
"Can I have your liver?"
"Message for you, sir!"
"Help! Help! I'm being repressed!"
"She turned me into a NEWT... um, I got better..."
"And there was much rejoicing."


What about Jaws?

"We're gonna need a bigger boat."

I'm ya huckleberry

Ohhh, NO NO NO! These lines have to be on a list like that.

Casablanca: "Round up the usual suspects"

The Cowboys: "Forgive me for the men I have killed. And those I am about to"

Lawrence of Arabia: "No prisoners!"

And another, from Tombstone:

"He's so drunk he's probably seein' double."

"I have two guns; one for each of ya."

What happened to "do you feel lucky"?

I don't even recall the name of the movie -- Night of the Comet? -- but the line has stuck with me ever since I saw it: "Daddy would have gotten us Uzis."

The very fact that I can't think of anything right now despite spending my entire teens talking in nothing but quotes from movies... probably means that I'm working too hard now that I'm in my twenties.

Oh wait: "And all those moment s will be lost like tears in the rain" from Bladerunner

Here's one from Groundhog Day that is relevant today, at least for those of us in the north...

"Here's a winter prediction for ya. It's going to be cold, it's going to be gray, and it's going to last you the rest of your life."

Ken, Casablanca could give you several others, too, like:

"Here's looking at you, kid."

"Play it, Sam." (NOT play it again)

"Of all the gin joints......"

Butch Cassidy: "Hell, the fall'll probably kill ya." and "Who are those guys?"

One of those Dirty Harrys: "Go ahead, punk. Make my day"

My favorite Clint Eastwood line is from Unforgiven.

"Hell of a thing, killin' a man. Take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have."

"don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining"
The Outlaw Josie Wales

"Mongo not knoe, Mongo only pawn in game of life!"

What about one of the most quoted movie lines?
"I'll make him an offer he can't refuse."
The Sundance Kid saying, "Gee Butch, do you think you used enough dynamite?" has to be better than the Michael Caine one.

"So I said, 'Hey, Mr. Lama......So, I got that going for me, which is nice."

"It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, a half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it!"

"I'm just a servant, sir, I really wouldn't know. On the other hand, go screw yourself."

"He slimed me."

"Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son."
Animal House

"I'm gonna look him straight in the eye, and I'm gonna tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, four-flushing, dickless, hopeless, dirt eating, inbred, bug-eyed, bow legged sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! HOLY SHIT! Where's the Tylenol?!"
Christmas Vacation

My favorite is probably from Beetlejuice:

"Ah, well, I attended Julliard. I'm a graduate of Harvard Business School. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and I had a pretty good time during THAT! I've seen The Exorcist about 167 times, and it keeps getting funnier EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT! Not to mention the fact that you're talking to a dead guy! Now what do you think?! You think I'm qualified?!"

Well, I always loved the line to the effect of "a shame when folks throw out a perfectly good white boy like that" from Better off Dead.

Galaxy Quest has some beauts, of which "Oh, that's not right" has to be the best, though "We've got to get out of here before something kills Guy", and "Didn't any of you actually watch the show?" are up there too.

"Is your head up your ass for the warmth?" - Tremors III: Back to Perfection

"I've come here to kick ass and chew gum... and I'm all outta gum." - They Live

"When someone asks you if you are a god.. SAY YES!" - Ghostbusters

"And now for something completly different" - Monty Python

More favorite Ghostbusters quotes:

"Human sacrifices, dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!"

"Back off man. I'm a scientist."

"Let's show this prehistoric b*tch how we do things downtown!"

"Hello Police? This is (Julia Roberts' character). Come over quick, I have just killed an intruder."

"Son, you got a panty on your head."

From Raising Arizona. Best. Chase Scene. Ever.

surprised "what we have here is a failure to communicate" from Cool Hand Luke didn't make the list ..

never mess with the italian job--it's a religious thing to brits--I have two friends that treat this film as if its refined gold--it's not a bad movie but their adoration--and that of other british people I know is beyond me.

"I'm only an elected official--I can't make decisions on my own!!"

No Jack Nicholsons?

"Here's Johnny!"

"This town needs an enima!"

"You can't handle the truth!"
and from the same movie, one for all the troops...
"There nothing better than getting a blowjob from a superior officer."

The Godfather; "Leave the gun, take the canolis"

"Surely you can't be serious!"

"I am serious, and don't call me Shirley."

"The hospital! What is it?"

"It's a big brick building with sick people. But that's not important right now."

"Comb the desert!"

"It's just a flesh wound!"

I think a good Jack Nicholson quote is from Batman, where the Joker is sitting at the table with all the gangsters. He's covered in flesh colored make up, but he's still got the smile.

Gangster: "...and what's with that stupid grin?"

Joker: "Life's been good to me!"

Oh yes, Mel Brooks needs to have at least one in there.

"we're not just doing this for money...we're doing it for a SHITLOAD of money!!!"

or Dirty Harry

"you forgot your fortune cookie, it says....you're shit out of luck!"

or Jack

"you can't handle the truth!!"

I've always liked:

"My mum's been fucking a dead guy for 30 years. I call him Dad."


"I hope it feels so good to be right. There's nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of others, is there? "

Both from Clerks.

kevin smith also has a ton of good ones.

"jesus christ man! there's just some things you don't talk about in public!"

"hey try not to suck any dick on the way to the parking lot..hey you get back here!!"

"oooo...navy seals!!"

What? No Pulp Fiction?
"We should have shotguns for this"


"Well we'd have to be talking about one #*$(#*#&# charming pig!"

From Local Hero: "It was a clean break, you can check the bones in the dish if you like."

The Princess Bride: "Life is pain, Princess. Anyone who tells you differently is selling you something."

This is Spinal Tap: "It's one louder," and the line about having armadillo's in their pants.

Finally, I can't remember the name of the movie this came from for the life of me, but it's still a beauty: "You make my ass twitch."

I agree that Monty Python should totally rule any list:

"Have at you!!"

"You lucky, lucky bastard!"

"Get that for me, would you Dierdre?"

Most of what I would have put are posted already. So musing on a few more lines... Way too many Austin Powers quotes have entered everyday talk.

Lots of great lines from teen movies from the 80s (favorites would have to be "I want my two dollars!" and "Donger need food."

Any Kevin Smith line.

Not a big Tarantino fan, but there are great lines in his movies. Favorites for me would be "I'm pretty fuckin' far from OK" and "Maybe your method of massage differs from mine, but touching his lady's feet, and stickin' your tongue in her holyiest of holies, ain't the same ballpark, ain't the same league, ain't even the same fuckin' sport."

Saw "Drop Dead Gorgeous" the other day and forgot how many good lines are in it. "If they ask you to take your top off, get the money first" and "His furniture is as fake as my orgasms" should rate.

OK, seriously... other quotes that everyone knows but not mentioned above...
"I want to be alone" Grand Hotel
"Stella!!!" and "I've always depended on the kindness of strangers"
"I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" Network
"He has his father's eyes" Rosemary's Baby
"Made it Ma, top of the world!" White Heat

"I want my Two Dollars!"
"So, at last we meet for the first time for the last time."

"By the power vested in me, by the City, State and County of New York, I hereby order to cease and desist all supernatural activity, and return forthwith to your place of origin, or the nearest convenient parallel dimenion."

"Sho' is a shame when folks'll throw out a perfectly good white boy like that."

"...and that, my liege, is how we know the Earth to be banana-shaped."

"Nazis. I hate those guys!"

"We can beat these Deadites, we can...with science!"

"You have to read between the crumbs. Not to mix metaphors."

"Oh, maybe in the future, plutonium is available at every corner drug store, but here in 1955 it's a little hard to come by."

"We're like 7-11--we're not always doing busines, but we're always open."

From Brazil, Harry Tuttle, freelance heating engineer (Bob DeNiro): "We're all in it together, kid."

Hurm....good movie quotes. Well, we'll start with the one that was the title of this post.

From Spinal Tap

"That was beautiful. What was it?"
"I call that one 'Lick my Love Pump.'"


"I think G is the saddest of chords, really."

From Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back:

"Someday, we will not spank the monkey, the monkeys will spank us!"

Reservoir Dogs

"If they hadn't done what I'd told them not to do, I wouldn't have had to do what I did."

Pulp Fiction

All of Samuel Jackson's Ezekiel speech

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

"No time for love, Dr. Jones!"


"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain..."

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

"There was also the socio-psychic factor. Every now and then when life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only real cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas. To relax as it were, in the womb of the desert sun. Just roll the roof back and screw it on, grease the face with white tanning butter, and move out with the music at top volume, and at least a pint of ether."

That's enough for now, I think.

"There is no spoon"

one of my favorite Rutger Hauer movies is Split Second, with this gem of a line:
Dick Durkin: We need to get bigger guns. BIG FUCKING GUNS!

Phillipe: [escaping from the dungeon] "This is not unlike escaping my mother's womb. God, what a memory!
Phillipe: I know I promised, Lord, never again. But I know that you know what a weak-willed person I am.

John Carpenter's Vampires:
Jack Crow: So, Valek, how is your dick working after 600 years?
Jack Crow: Hey Valek! Why don't you prove you can kick my ass! Untie me, you prick! Fucking pole-smoking fashion victim!!

and the best exchange of the movie:
Jack Crow: So padre, I gotta know. When you were hitting that vampire earlier did you get a little wood?
Father Adam Guiteau: Mahogany.
Jack Crow: What?
Father Adam Guiteau: Ebony.
Jack Crow: Huh?
Father Adam Guiteau: Teak.
Jack Crow: Padre!
Father Adam Guiteau: Major Chubby.
Jack Crow: Language padre, language!

"I'll buy that for a Dollar!"

"I'll be back."

"Nuke the site from Orbit... It's the only way to be sure" (Not a bad philosophy on Iraq :-P Almost all of Aliens is quotable)

"I came to chew gum and kick ass and I'm all out of gum"

"Conan, what is good in life? To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentaion of the women."

"All too easy."

Starship Troopers

Dizzy: My mother always told me that violence doesn't solve anything.

Rasczak: Really. I wonder what the city founders of Hiroshima would have to say about that.

Carmen: They wouldn't say anything. Hiroshima was destroyed.

Rasczak: Correct. Violence has resolved more conflicts than anything else. The contrary opinion that violence doesn't solve anything is mearly wishful thinking at its worst.


From 'Conan the Barbarian':
"Conan! What is best in life?"
"To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of the women."

From 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre':
"We are the Federales - you know, the Mounted Police?"
"If you're the Federales, where are your badges?"
"Badges? We don't have badges. We don't have to show you no stinkin badges!"

"We're gonna need a bigger boat."
- Jaws

"I'm a little fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing."

"Yes, your honor, it's true - this man has no dick."

"You never studied."

(and nearly every other line)

"Evil black lectroids from planet ten!"

Some more greats...

"You ask for a miracle, I give you the F...B...I..."

"Get busy living or get busy dying"

Oh, and how did we miss this quote machine?

"We're adding a little something to this month's sales contest. As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac El Dorado. Anybody want to see second prize? [Holds up prize.] Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired."

"Get them to sign on the line which is dotted."

"See this watch? That watch costs more than you car. I made $970,000 last year. How much you make? You see pal, that's who I am, and you're nothing. Nice guy, I don't give a shit. Good father, fuck you! Go home and play with your kids! You wanna work here, close!"

"A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing, always be closing."

and finally...


"So that's what an invisible barrier looks like!"
- Time Bandits

"All you earthlings are stupid! Stupid, stupid, stupid!"
- Plan 9 From Outer Space

too many to count, or list here. but a few off the top of my head:

the princess bride:
"you keep using that word. i do not think it means what you think it means."

various quotes from samuel l. jackson (all of them are on this soundboard)

tommy lee jones in the fugitive:
"what I want out of each and every one of you is a hard target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse, and dog house in that area."

kevin spacey in american beauty:
"i RULE!"

val kilmer in real genius:
"i was thinking of the immortal words of socrates who said, i drank what?"

almost anything from ghostbusters, but particularly ernie hudson's "tell him about the twinkie," and harold ramis's "i collect spores, mold, and fungus."

and of course, from jay and silent bob strike back:
"there's a line. and on this side of it, we ain't gay."
"he LOVES the cock!"
"i'm jay, and this is my hetero life mate, silent bob."
(there's tons in that movie, i can't even go there, i'll be here all week.)

great topic!!

one more, from toy story, though there's loads there too:

Woody: Look, we're all very impressed with Andy's new toy.
Buzz: Toy?
Woody: T-O-Y, toy.
Buzz: Excuse me, I think the word you're searching for is "space ranger".
Woody: The word I'm searching for, I can't say, because there's preschool toys present.

How can you mention The Princess Bride without:

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!"


"You keep using that word. I don't think that word means what you think it means."

Here's one from the Professional

"Get me everyone..."


"hey i'm just doing my job. you gimme any of that juris-my-diction crap, you can cram it up your ass."


"it means buckle your seatbelt dorothy, cuz kansas, is going bye-bye."


"a small price to pay for putting foot-to-ass for my country."

"the things i'm going to do for my country..."

Days of Thunder:

"all right now when you get back on that track i want you to hit the pace car."
"hit the pace car?"
"hit the pace car!!"
What for?"
"cuz you hit every other goddamn thing, i want you to be perfect!"

"i'm dropping the hammer."

"No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die."

Among all these GREAT movie lines, I give you:

Worst. Movie Line. EVER.

Pierce Brosnan as James Bond to Denise Richards as Dr. Christmas Jones, basking in the afterglow in the last moments of The World is Not Enough:

"I thought Christmas only came ONCE a year."

I was glad to see the closing line from "Silence of the Lambs", but "Some Like It Hot" also has a classic closer: "Nobody's perfect."

The best line from "Groundhog Day" was when Phil was told to "try again tomorrow": "What if there is no tomorrow?" he said. "There wasn't one today!"

One of my parent's favorites:

From the Jerk - "I was born a poor black child" - Steve Martin (ok, so it's more visual humour than anything.. but you get the point :))

Perhaps bits of fluff, but:

"Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K."

"Never give up! Never surrender!"

"Look, I have one job on this ship. It's stupid, but I'm going to do it. Okay?!"

You see in this world there's two kinds of people my friend, those with loaded guns, and those who dig...you dig!

Another good one from Arthur:

"Usually one must go to a bowling alley to meet a women of your stature."

And from a Clint Eastwood movie, which is applicable to Iraq:

"There's nothing wrong with shooting, just as long as the right people get shot."

Larry, you're absolutely right, lot of GREAT lines in Casablanca, including "I despise you, and because I despise you I feel I can trust you"

Best Dirty Harry line is "Do you feel lucky", but my personal favorite is "Meet my associates, Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson"

And, from True Grit, one of the greatest exchanges of all:

"I aim to kill you in one minute, Ned. Or take you back to be hanged at Judge Parker's convenience. Take your choice."
"I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man."
"Fill your hand, you son of a bitch!"

Oh, one more from True Grit:

"She shot me! I didn't think she'd do it!"

my recent favorite is from Fargo

"I guess that's your accomplice there in the chippef"

My all time favorite: Kathleen Turner to William Hurt in "Body Heat": Your're not too smart....I like that in a man.

"Yo, where are the white women?" - Blazing Saddles

"Sell me your women, your children" - Blues Brothers

"mmm, that IS a tasty burger" and "I'm gonna get medieval on your ass" - Pulp Fiction.

"Now, theres one thing I want you to remember. I don't want to get any messages saying that we are holding our position. We are not holding anything. We let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding on anything except the enemy! We're going to hold him by the nose and we are goin to kick him in the ass! We're going to kick the hell out of him all the time and we're going to go through him like crap through a goose!" --- Patton

"Khan!" --- Star Trek 2: Wrath of Khan

"Of my friend, I can only say this. Of all the souls that I have encountered in my travels, his was the most......human." --- ST2: WoK

"Something is always happening, but when it happens... people don't always see it..... or understand it.... or accept it." --- Fallen

ack I gotta stop....too many to type....

Mike - the "you people make my ass twitch" line is Meg Ryan in French Kiss if I remember right.

Some great lines here! I love it!

"This is what happens Larry, when you fuck a stranger in the ass!"

"All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine."

"I want my two dollars!"

And my favorites from The Breakfast Club:

"So it's sorta social...demented and sad, but social. Right?"

"But face it, you're a Neo-Maxi-Zoom-Dweebie!"

"Dork, you are a parent's wet dream, okay?"

If you stuck a lump of coal up his ass in two weeks you would have a diamond (Ferris Bueller's Day Off)

anything from Backdraft including
"he never calls, he never writes" and "You go, we go"

"You fucked up, Flounder. You trusted us." - Animal House

"We're on a mission from God" - Blues Brothers

And you can't be a golfer and not quote half of "Caddyshack" while playing a round.

How many times have you walked up to a putt going, "Oh Billie, Billie, Billie..." Or your buddy is standing over a putt and you start saying, "Miss it! Noonan! Nuh, Nuh, NOONAN!" How many errant shots are met with the remark, "It's in the lumber yard, Danny"

One of my favorite movie lines.

"One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas I don't know."-Groucho Marx-ANIMAL CRACKERS.

I can't believe that none of these lists I've been reading (The official one at least) include nothing from Groucho.

"Did your parents have any children that lived?"

"You're so ugly you could be a modern art masterpiece."

"Get the fuck off of my obstacle."

"Don't try too hard. If God would have wanted you up there he would have miracled your ass up there, wouldn't he?"

"I bet you're the kind of guy that would fuck a person in the ass and not even have the god damned common courtesy to give him a reach around."

"Bullshit! It looks to me like the best part of you ran down the crack of your mama's ass and ended up as a brown stain on the mattress. "

"Pyle, you climb obstacles like old people fuck!"

"Hell I like you, you can come over to my house and fuck my sister. "

"I wanna slip my tube steak into your sister. What'll you take in trade? ® What do you got? "

All from the greatest movie of all time: Full Metal Jacket.

Awesome topic. Let me list a few of my favorites, some from movies already referenced above:

It's Christmas, Theo, the time for miracles, so be of good cheer!

Here's some more from the Marx's (as in brothers, not Karl)

For Matt Tyler: No, Groucho's jersey was retired because he kept filling up the lists. The judges wanted to give the other contestants a chance.

But here are some of my favorites:

"Marry me! Then I'll take a vacation. I'll need a vacation if I marry you. Ah, my dear, I can see it now. I see you bending over a hot stove. But I can't see the stove."

Groucho: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, Chicolini may look like an idiot and act like an idiot, but don't let that fool you, he really is an idiot. I beg of you, send him back to his father and brothers who are waiting for him with open arms at the state penitentiary. I suggest we give him ten years in Leavenworth or eleven years in Twelveworth.
Chico: I tell you what, I'll take five and ten in Woolworth.

Groucho: We're talking about taxes.
Chico: Hey, I got an uncle that lives in Taxes.
Groucho: No! I mean taxes! Dollars!
Chico: That's right! Dollas, Taxes.

Jeffrey's dad: You're insane!
Jeffrey: No I'm Not.

Bubba: Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.

Forrest: Lieutenant Dan, what are you doing here?
Lieutenant Dan: I'm here to try out my sea legs.
Forrest: But you ain't got no legs, Lieutenant Dan.


The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your entire life looking for it, and it would not be a wasted life.
