Call it burn out, call it what you will. I'm feeling it today. Temporary, yes, but stifling nonetheless. I find myself just not caring today. Let's move away from the ugly world of politics, news and bicycle spills. Let's go to the wonderful world of movies, via Emily: (Well, via Emily's place, but in a post written by the lovely Ken Summers) bq. I’d like to ask what you think are the greatest movie lines of all time. The best lines should be stand-alone great, but I realize that most are context-sensitive. That’s okay, but supply the context if necessary. Below are some of my favorites. I'll post mine here and at Emily's in a bit. It takes time to cull these lists down to a manageable hundred or so. But you go right ahead and start. No limit. Knock yourselves out. Hell, I don't care if you write a 78 paragraph statement on why a particular line means so much to you. Just entertain me, damn it! Have at it. Update: It's actually twice as much fun when you don't source the quote. Update 2: Here's one of my all time favorites: bq. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane, with all the other rich people, and I want him brought right here with a big ribbon on his head. And, I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no good, rotten, floor-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed, sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy Shit! Where's the Tylenol?

» Movie quotes from This Blog Is Full Of Crap
Michele was asking for movie quotes yesterday. Now that I think of it, there's two I quote frequently... "So shines a good deed in a weary world" - Willy Wonka "I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it... [Read More]


"I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing."

"There's another saying, Senator: Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining."

Kids your age. Pimple-faced college drop outs who have made unhealthy sums of money forming internet companies that create no concrete products, provide no viable services, and still manage to generate profits for all of its lazy day-trading son-of-a bitch shareholders. Meanwhile, as a tortured member of the disenfranchised proletariat, you find some altruistic need to protect these digital plantation owners?

Jeremy Piven as Dean in Serendipity.

Jeremy Piven made that movie. I would actually rather listen to his bon mots than stare longingly at Kate Beckinsale and she is automatic chubby material.

This particular line just knocked me over, partly because of the delivery (seemingly all in one breath) and partially because it is so hillariously and baldly accurate.

Plus I love the phrase "digital plantation owners".

Welp, this is my first comment on this blog, so why not start off with a bang?

"You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it! Is that clear? You think you've merely stopped a business deal: that is not the case. The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back! It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity. It is ecological balance. You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations; there are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems; one vast, interwoven, interacting, multivaried, multinational dominion of dollars. It is the international system of currency which determines the vitality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today. And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature. And you...will...ATONE."

- Ned Beatty in NETWORK, proving every last person involved in television is bat-shit insane.

Actually, that was Ken's post, but I'll take the credit...

Well, it's your place.

Eh, Ken's gonna be mad. I better fix it.

"The rose goes in the front big guy."

-much better quote than the more memorable and now cliched one from this movie.

"I was just pondering the immortal words of Socrates, who said "I drank what?!""

-- Erik

Ok, I have 2 I can't decide on - from the same character, different movies

"Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah!Holly Shit! Where's the Tylenol?"


"Oh, Eddie... If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am now."

"Are my eyes really brown?" (Bogie)

"Do you expect me to talk?"
"No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!"


"Hail to the king, baby."

"I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum."

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

"Don't eat the green ones, they aren't ripe yet. A-hahaha."

"Pyle, you had best unfuck yourself and start shitting me Tiffany cufflinks or I will definitely fuck you up!"


"You will give your rifle a girl's name because this is the only pussy you people are going to get. Your days of finger-banging ol' Mary Jane Rottencrotch through her pretty pink panties are over!"

"The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world, he didn't exist." - Verbal Kint in 'The Usual Suspects' -- I'm not even sure that line was original or where it came from, but it sounds so damned good when Spacey said it.

"Go ahead, make my day." - Dirty Harry Callahan in 'Sudden Impact' --- A classic line.

"You ain't leading but two things right now: Jack and shit, and Jack left town." - Ash from 'Army of Darkness'

"He said, go back inside!" - Agent Norman Stansfield in 'Leon.' This is a 'context' quote because he says it right after firing a bullet (claiming he was calm) over that old lady's head and with a cigarette dangling out of his mouth.

"I'll make him an offer he can't refuse." - Vito Corleone from 'The Godfather'

"You're gonna need a bigger boat." - Chief Brody in 'Jaws'

"Greed, for the lack of a better word, is good." - Gordon Gekko in 'Wall Street'

"Wake up! Time to die!" - Leon in 'Blade Runner'

On second thought, those don't work well out of context.

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

Oh God, I LOVE "Are my eyes really brown"! Such a great moment.

"Here's lookin' at you, kid."

"Lovely"? Forgot your glasses today, didja? ;)

"How come I'm the only one who has that dream?"

"No lieutenant, your men are already dead."

"In this world, Elwood, you must be oh-so smart, or oh-so pleasant. Well, for years I was smart, I recommend pleasant."

"Well that's great, that's just fuckin' great man, now what the fuck are we supposed to do? We're in some real pretty shit now man... That's it man, game over man, game over, man! Game over!"

Two of them, one classic, one new.

"No reward is worth this."

"There's a... 30% chance that it's already raining"

Ted - "You ditched Napoleon? Deacon, do you realize you've stranded one of history's greatest leaders?"

Deacon - "He was a dick."

"I suggest a new strategy... let the Wookie win."

"Tell a person that you're the Metatron and they stare at you blankly. Mention something out of a Charlton Heston movie and suddenly everybody is a theology scholar."

Movie quotes? What kinda bullshit is this? Where's the political talk? Give me substance, baby. Substance!

"Heineken? Fuck that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!"


"Greetings, my friends. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember, my friends, future events such as these will affect you in the future."

I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight.

This flick is also a favorite in the Allah household.

"Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son." - Deam Wormer

"Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have more responsibility here than you could 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 that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. I know deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you don't 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 of a life spent defending something. You use them 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 question the manner in which I provide it. I prefer you said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand to post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to." - Colonel Jessup

"No wire hangers!" - Joan Crawford

"Get Bob Berenger something. What's he like?"
"Fourteen year-old girls."
"Well, get him half of a twenty-eight year-old girl."


"This is what my people died for. The right to make a movie in this town."

"Well why don't you put her in charge?!?!"

"No Luke......I...am your father."

"Good...Bad...I'm the one with the gun."

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

"No, no, no! Don't cut that. You never know what it might be attached to."

"Nothing but two nasty looking switches here, but I'll not be the first."

"Do you want me to put these on?"
"How can I bite them off you if you don't?"

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

"Freeze gopher!"

I have so many, but here are just a few:

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

"Never give up. Never surrender."

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Michele, you're absolutely right. Much better without the source.

"Anything? Well, uh I guess I, deep down, am feeling a little confused. I mean, suddenly, you get married, and you're supposed to be this entirely different guy. I don't feel different. I mean, take yesterday for example. We were out at the Olive Garden for dinner, which was lovely. And uh, I happen to look over at a certain point during the meal and see a waitress taking an order, and I found myself wondering what color her underpants might be. Her panties. Uh, odds are they are probably basic white, cotton, underpants. But I sort of think well maybe they're silk panties, maybe it's a thong. Maybe it's something really cool that I don't even know about. You know, and uh, and I started feeling.....what? what I thought we were in the trust tree in the nest, were we not? "

"Sometimes I get the menstrual cramps real hard."

"You're young and you got your health, what do you want with a job?"

"Can you make funny shapes with em?
I imagine so, if you think round is funny"

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

"Well if'n I freeze, I can't rightly drop, and if I drop, I'ma gonna be in motion."

"He had on his damn jammies - they had Yodas and shit on em."

"Well it ain't Ozzie and Harriet."

There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. 'T would be a pity to damage yours.

Well I believe in the soul... the cock...the pussy... the small of a woman's back... the hangin' curveball... high fiber... good scotch... that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent overrated crap... I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a Constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days. Goodnight.

Bull Durham

"You made one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is, 'Never fight a land war in Asia.' But only slight less well known is, 'Never go up against a Sicilian, when Death is on the line!' Hahahaha...haha...haha..."

The barbarities of war are seldom committed by abnormal men. The tragedy of war is that these horrors are committed by normal men in abnormal situations.
-Breaker Morant

"Someday this war's gonna end..."

"You have failed me for the last time."

"You don't care about anything except you. You just want to persuade people that you love 'em so much that they ought to love you back. Only you want love on your own terms. Something to be played your way, according to your rules."

"You got to admit I played this stinking city like a harp from hell."


(can you guess the movie? Check the comments at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075222/)

Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!

You are so money.

How extravagant you are, Rick, throwing away women like that. Some day they may be scarce.

I knew that loose was too noose. Um...noose was too loose.

I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request... means "no"


No time for the old in-out, love, I've just come to read the meter.


It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.


"Actor" 1: It's turkey time.
"Actor" 2: What?
"Actor" 1: Come on, gobble, gobble.

"You are an errand boy,
Sent by grocery clerks to collect a bill."
Apocalypse Now

"Are you not entertained?"

"Don't nobody care what's goin' on in da hood."

He was a cruel but fair man. Nailed me hand to a table once, but a real professional abou' it.

...And for vocal quality alone: "Tell me about the Silence of the Lambs."


Slade (Al Pachino) in Scent of a Woman (warning: graphic language)

"Out of order? I'll show you out of order! You don't know what out of order is, Mr. Trask! I'd show you but I'm too old, I'm too tired, and I'm too fucking blind. If I were the man I was five years ago, I'd take a flamethrower to this place! Out of order, who the hell do you think you're talking to? I've been around, you know? There was a time I could see, and I have seen, boys like these, younger than these, their arms torn out, their legs ripped off. But there is nothing like the sight of an amputated spirit; there is no prostetic for that. You think you're merely sending this splendid foot soldier back home to Oregon with his tail between his legs, but I say that you are executing his soul! And why? Because he's not a "Baird Man". Baird Man. You hurt this boy, you're gonna be Baird bums, the lot of you. And Harry, Jimmy, Trent, wherever you are out there: fuck you too!"

"Stand down, Mr. Slade!"

"I'm not finished! As I came in here, I heard those words, "cradle of leadership". Well, when the bow breaks, the cradle will fall, and it has fallen here, it has fallen. Makers of men, creators of leaders, be careful what kind of leaders you're producing here! I don't know if Charlie's silence here today is right or wrong. I'm not a judge or jury, but I can tell you this: he won't sell anybody out to buy his future! That, my friends, is called integrity. That's called courage. Now that's the stuff leader should be made of.

"Now I have come to the crossroads in my life. I always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew. But I never took it. You know why? It was too damn hard. Now here's Charlie: he's come to the crossroads. He has chosen a path: it's the right path. It's a path made of principle that leads to character. Let him continue on his journey. You hold this boy's future in your hands, committee. It's a valuable future, believe me. Don't destroy it, protect it. Embrace it. It's gonna make you proud one day, I promise you."

"Have the good manners not to hit the man until he's your husband and entitled to hit you back."

"Impetuous! Homeric!"

"Of course I'm a bad guy, you idiot! I'm a lawyer!" -from Rustlers Rhapsody

"Who died and left you in charge?"
"Captain Bipco!"
"Oh, right."

"Listen and understand. That Terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop--ever--until you are DEAD!"

"Is that how a diseased mind like yours gets it's kicks? By plotting the deaths of innocent people?"
"No--by causing the deaths of innocent people." --Superman and Lex Luthor

"You want an explanation? Fine! This university believes that the purpose of science is to advance mankind. You, however, seem to regard science as some kind of dodge, or hustle. Your methods are sloppy, your theories are the worst sort of popular tripe, and your conclusions are highly questionable. You are a poor science...Dr. Venkman."
"Yeah--but the kids love us."

"Is this gonna be a stand up fight, or another bug hunt?"

"Here's some swiss cheese and some bullets." (Almost any line from TREMORS is terrific)

Grab a brew. Don't cost nothin'.

My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.

What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?


"I've never met a woman like you before. I've met teamsters like you, . . . "

"Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?"

I'm obliged to submit my feeble blog's namesake quote:

"Now what kind of an attitude is that, 'these things happen?' They only happen because this whole country is just full of people who, when these things happen, they just say 'these things happen,' and that's why they happen!"

"When I put my mind to something, I go all the way. I'll go all the way for you, sir. I'm a big fan of money. I have a little. I keep it in a jar on top of my refrigerator. I wanna put more in that jar. That's where you come in."

You know, I never really liked paying bills. I don't think I'm going to do that either.

"My dear, since Eve picked the apple, no woman has ever been taken entirely unawares."

"Do not run away. We are your friends."

"Everything is proceeding as I have forseen."

"Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!"

"Victor. Nettoyeur."

"Doctor, can you give us your impression of the patient?" - "I'm sorry, i don't do impressions, my training is in psychiatry."

"It just so happens we be Texicans. Texican is nothin' but a human man way out on a limb, this year and next. Maybe for a hundred more. But I don't think it'll be forever. Some day, this country's gonna be a fine good place to be. Maybe it needs our bones in the ground before that time can come."

Actor1:Well, the prodigal brother. Ain't seen you since the surrender. Come to think of it, I didn't see you at the surrender.
Actor2:I don't believe in surrenders.

#1: I used to sit by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then they moved my desk, and they switched staplers, from the Swingline to the Boston, but I kept my Swingline, because it doesn't bind up as much, and...
#2: Okay, then..
#3: No, it's not okay, and I told Mr. Lumburgh that if they move my desk one more time, I'll...set the building on fire.

"Well the whole bloody place (America) is the most unspeakable matriarchy in the whole history of civilization! Look at yourself! The way your wife & her strumpet of a mother push you through the hoop! As far as I can see, American men have been totally emasculated- they're like slaves! They die like flies from coronary thrombosis while their women sit under hairdryers eating chocolates & arranging for every 2nd Tuesday to be some sort of Mother's Day! I'll wager you anything you like, if American women stopped wearing brassieres, your whole national economy would collapse overnight!"

Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I'm being repressed!

Bloody peasant!

Oh, what a give-away. Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about. Did you see him repressing me? You saw it, didn't you?

"Give me that baby, you warthog from Hell!"

"Sometimes you just got to say... what the f*ck."

Mmm, that IS a tasty burger.

husband's therapist:"How often do you sleep together?" husband:"Hardly ever. Maybe three times a week."

wife's therapist:"Do you have sex often?" wife:"Constantly. I'd say three times a week."

"I find your lack of faith disturbing"

"My teen-age angst bullshit has a body count!"

"Pardon me Miss, I speak Jive"

""Bitches, man..."

"That's what being a Protestant's all about. That's why it's the church for me. That's why it's the church for anyone who respects the individual and the individual's right to decide for him or herself. When Martin Luther nailed his protest up to the church door in fifteen- seventeen, he may not have realised the full significance of what he was doing, but four hundred years later, thanks to him, my dear, I can wear whatever I want on my John Thomas,... [sniff] ...and, Protestantism doesn't stop at the simple condom! Oh, no! I can wear French Ticklers if I want."

"I think this is a private club Wang, so don't tell them you Jewish."

"What you get a free bowl of soup with this hat? Hey, look good on you though."

"No, no, Good shot. Right on the beach."

"You, Your no good."

"The best part about it is that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon and get stoned to the bejesus belt that night"

Karl: Sir, I'm retired navy, I know all about classified. But one more thing. The person who finds her gets to name her right?
Dan Truman: Yes, yes that's right, that's right.
Karl: I wanna name her Dottie after my wife. She's a vicious life-sucking bitch from which there is no escape.

--Your brain will be electronically simplified.
--My brain? That's my second-favorite organ.

"Questions raced through his mind: What had he done to deserve this bounty? Does God exist? Who invented liquid soap, and why?"

"Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn't have to produce anything! You've never been out of college! You don't know what it's like out there! I've worked in the private sector. They expect results."

"It just doesn't matter"

"We could do that, we don't even need a reason"

"That's a fact, Jack!"

"Back off man, I'm a scientist"

Heck I could do this all day just with Bill Murray lines. (Well, certainly with the last three movies, not too much in Meatballs to quote)

"When you vote, you're exercising political authority. You are using force. And force, my friends, is violence, the supreme authority from which all other authority derives"

"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."

"It's the smart move, Tessio was always smarter."

Look, if you want to torture me, spank me, lick me, do it. But if this poetry shit continues just shoot me now please.

Major Strasser: Are you one of those people who cannot imagine the Germans in their beloved Paris?
Rick: It's not particularly my beloved Paris.
Heinz: Can you imagine us in London?
Rick: When you get there, ask me!
Captain Renault: Hmmh! Diplomatist!
Major Strasser: How about New York?
Rick: Well there are certain sections of New York, Major, that I wouldn't advise you to try to invade.

Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is.

LTC McKnight: You, get up there and drive!
Clay Othic: But I'm shot Colonel!
LTC McKnight: Everybody's shot! We need the prisoners, let's go!

I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. That's the only way to be sure.

I think... no, I am positive... that you are the most unattractive man I have ever met in my entire life. You know, in the short time we've been together, you have demonstrated EVERY loathsome characteristic of the male personality and even discovered a few new ones. You are physically repulsive, intellectually retarded, you're morally reprehensible, vulgar, insensitive, selfish, stupid, you have no taste, a lousy sense of humor and you smell. You're not even interesting enough to make me sick.

Do or do not. There is no try.

I remember when my daddy gave me that gun. He told me that I should never point it at anything in the house; and that he'd rather I'd shoot at tin cans in the backyard. But he said that sooner or later he supposed the temptation to go after birds would be too much, and that I could shoot all the blue jays I wanted - if I could hit 'em; but to remember it was a sin to kill a mockingbird. Well, I reckon because mockingbirds don't do anything but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat people's gardens, don't nest in the corncrib, they don't do one thing but just sing their hearts out for us.

We're not your classic heros. We're the other guys.

- "They all have husbands and wives and children and houses and dogs, and, you know, they've all made themselves a part of something and they can talk about what they do. What am I gonna say? 'I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How've you been?'"

The greatest quote ever!

"So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas."[a looper?] Yeah, a looper, you know, a caddy, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one -- big hitter, the Lama -- long, into a ten-thousand foot crevice, right at the base of this glacier. And do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga...gunga -- gunga galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort" And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money in it for you, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice."

"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be'she always called me Elwood'In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. And you may quote me."


I love this quote. It has become shorthand for anytime one of our friends starts putting the crews to another friend in the midst of a fight with their girlfriend. Nothing like throwing gasoline on the fire.

--And who do you work for, Mr. Breen?
--Nobody whose name you want me to say.

You know the Woodstock Generation that were all so conceited and full of themselves? None of those people could dance.

--What makes you happy?
--Nothing! I'm not!

If I flunk English that's it; kiss college good bye. I'll get maybe a six month grace period, then I've gotta get a job, and you know what that means. That's right; I start at the register, and work my way up to the drive through. Then my big break comes: The french-fry guy dies and they offer me the job. The day I'm supposed to start, some guys in a black Lincoln tell me I can make a quick $300 just for driving a van back from Mexico...When I get out of jail, I'm thirty-six years old. No job, no upward mobility, very few teeth...

Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!"

The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last.

Blood's not thicker than money.

I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.

Perfect people never permit sentiment to muddle their thinking.

Do you hear that Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability.

I'll shoot you. Really, I will. I have a gun and everything.

Now, are either of you homosexuals?

You mean like flaming? Or part time?

Well, it's a question we have to ask of all our new recruits.

No, we're not homosexual, but we are willing to learn.

From my favorite movie of all time (and one Michele apparently likes too):

"Nihilists!? .... Fuck me .... I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude- at least it's an ethos."

I think one D.H. quote is missing:

A man's got to know his limitations.

"one, two...three...four...Oswald was a pussy."

"I ain't got time to bleed."

"What is the greatest feeling in life? To see your enemy flee before you, and hear the lamentations of his women."

"If it bleeds, we can kill it."

"What's the world comin' to, when folks throw out a perfectly good white kid."

"I'll swallow your soul! I'll swallow your soul!"

What we have here... is a failure to communicate.

"You know what I am going to do about this?"
"Nothing! Because if I take it to small claims court, it will just drain 8 hours out of my life and you probably won't show up and even if I got the judgment you'd just stiff me anyway; so what I am going to do is piss and moan like an impotent jerk, and then bend over and take it up the tailpipe!"

"one, two...three...four...Oswald was a pussy."

actually it was "Oswald was a fag."

Interesting that BeckyJ's quote, "Remember, no matter where you go, there you are," appears in two sci-fi movies that came out within a year of each other.

Let her go. Let her go, man. Another Quaalude, she gonna love me again. What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That the bad guy." So...what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide--how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say goodnight to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Betta get outta his way!

BELLBOY: That's all very well, Mr. Hammer, but we haven't been paid in two weeks and we want our wages!

HAMMER: Wages? Do you want to be wage slaves, answer me that.


HAMMER: No, of course not. Well, what makes wage slaves? Wages! I want you to be free. Remember, there's nothing like Liberty -- except Collier's and the Saturday Evening Post. Be free, my friends. One for all,and all for me, and me for you, and three for five and six for a quarter.

They all have husbands and wives and children and houses and dogs, and, you know, they've all made themselves a part of something and they can talk about what they do. What am I gonna say? "I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How've you been?"

"I think people should mate forever, like pigeons...or Catholics."

Actor 1: "I got a question. If you guys know so much about women, how come you're here at like the Gas 'n' Sip on a Saturday night completely alone drinking beers with no women anywhere?
Actor 2: "By choice, man."

Actor 1:"Elliot? You're gonna name the kid Elliot? No, you can't name the kid Elliot. Elliot is a fat kid with glasses who eats paste. You're not gonna name the kid Elliot. You gotta give him a real name. Give him a name. Like Nick.
Actor 2: "Nick?"
Actor 1: "Yeah, Nick. Nick's the kinda guy you can trust. Nick's your buddy. Nick's the kinda guy you drink beers with. The kinda guy that doesn't care if you puke in his car. Nick."

"Pretty industrious for a Cossack."


"So then .... that would make Bethany .... part black?"

"If you don't have anything nice to say about anyone, come sit by me!"


"Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

Not at all. They could be carried.

What? A swallow carrying a coconut?"


"It's just a flesh wound!"


"Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say 'ni' at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land. Nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress at this period in history."


"Stop! Stop, will you?! Stop that! Stop it! Now, look! No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle! Do you understand?! Even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say 'Jehovah'."

When you're dealing with a store like this, they're insured up the ass. They're not supposed to give you any resistance whatsoever. If you get a
customer or an employee who thinks he's Charles Bronson, take the butt of your
gun and smash their nose in. Drops 'em right to the floor. Everyone jumps, he
falls down, screaming, blood squirts out of his nose. Freaks everybody out.
Nobody says fuckin' shit after that. You might get some bitch talk shit to ya. But give her a look, like you're gonna smash her in the face next. Watch her shut the fuck up. Now if it's a manager, that's a different story. The
managers know better than to fuck around. So if one's givin' you static, he probably thinks he's a real cowboy. So what you gotta do is break that son-of-a-bitch in two. If you wanna know something he won't tell you, cut off one of his fingers. The little one. Then tell 'im his thumb's next. After that he'll tell ya if he wears ladies underwear. ...I'm hungry, let's get a taco.

"We're not here to do the decent thing, we're here to follow fucking orders."

"I am! I was!"

"Well that sounds like a really nice deal, but I have a better one. How about I give you the finger, finger, and you give me my phone call."

"I was never more certain of how far away I was from my goal than when I was standing right beside it."

"There's no gene for fate."

"He had everything except desire."

"You want to know how I did it? This is how I did it, Anton: I never saved anything for the swim back."

"I got the better end of the deal. I only lent you my body -- you lent me your dream."

(NOTE: got next quote from IMDb)
And even if we win, if we win, HAH! Even if we play so far above our heads that our noses bleed for a week to ten days; even if God in Heaven above points his hand at our side of the field; even if every man woman and child joined hands together and prayed for us to win, it just wouldn't matter because all the really good looking girls would still go out with the guys from Mohawk because they've got all the money! It just doesn't matter if we win or if we lose. IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER!

Excuse me for reposting this, but I screwed it up the first time.

And of course I can't believe nobody used one of the best and most quoted lines of the 80s.

I was born a poor black child.
Whenever my nephew goes into his 'gangsta rap' mode I quote that one at him.

"It's completely baked."

"Mein Furher! I can walk!"

Gotta love that one...

"I'd piss on a spark plug if I thought it'd help."

"Turn up the Flash Gordon noise, and put more science stuff around!"

"Moose bites can be pritti nasti, you know."

"YES! YES! Say it! He... vas... my... BOYFRIEND!"

"Lighten up, Francis."

"Call Boris Karloff a cocksucker."

Hello everyone, I am a park ranger and I will be leading you on the tour. All of the park rangers here at Alcatraz were at one time guards, myself included. My name is John Johnson, but everyone here calls me Vicky. Will you please follow me?

Put it on the Underhill's tab."

"OK, so we got a trooper pulls someone over, we got a shooting, these folks drive by, there's a high-speed pursuit, ends here and then this execution-type deal."


"Say hello to my little friend!"


"Leave the gun. Take the cannoli."

"I think you're bluffing."
"It's possible. Pig. It's conceivable, you miserable vomitous mass, that I'm only lying here because I lack the strength to stand. But then again, perhaps I have the strength after all..."
"Drop. Your. Sword."

It’s envy, plain and simple. Every sap that ever played by the rules, made the commitment, bought the cow and goes through every day praying, please God , let tonight not be “too tired, big day tomorrow, getting my period, got my period, just had my period, yeast infection, bladder infection, dinner with those rockheads who never leave before midnight” hates him. They wish they could do what he does and they know they never will. So they hate him and they want to see him go down.

These are a couple that my Congo African Grey Parrot, Mayo likes to repeat: Badges...we don't need no stinkin badges and I see dead people (which is pretty creepy to hear when his cage is covered) He also says some of the other lines already listed. Searched this site to teach him something new. Thanks.
