Two from BODY HEAT

Ned: Maybe you shouldn't dress like that.
Matty: This is a blouse and a skirt. I don't know what you're talking about.
Ned: You shouldn't wear that body.

and

Ned: I need someone to take care of me, someone to rub my tired muscles, smooth out my sheets.
Matty: Get married.
Ned: I just need it for tonight.


and two from CADDYSHACK (and quoted every round I play)

"Nice shot. Right on the beach."

and

"Your honor your Honor."

Good question. Don't know if I can pick just one, since I quote movies in everyday conversation all the time.

Whenever I go out with a certain group of friends for dinner, and we're trying to decide what to order, invariably "Bacon tastes good. Pork chops taste good." from Pulp Fiction gets said. Clerks and Caddyshack quotes also get a lot of play, too.

So many to chose from that I can't think of my ultimate favorite. I can narrow it down to my 5 favorites, so here they are (in no particular order):

From Ghostbusters:

Stantz: "Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here."
EPA Guy: "They caused an explosion!"
Mayor: "Is this true?"
Venkman: "Yes it's true, this man has no dick."


From Boogie Nights:

Guy holdng woman bleeding heavily from her nose: "I think she did too much coke."
Colonel:"Oh you think so doctor?"


From CaddyShack:

Al Czervik: Oh, this your wife, huh? A lovely lady. Hey baby, you must've been something before electricity.

From Army of Darkness:

Sheila (after coming back to the castle as a member of the undead): You use to find me beutiful.

Ash: You got reaaaaaaal ugly.


From The Warriors

...while running from the Baseball Furies...

Cowboy: I can't make it.
Ajax: Are you sure?
Cowboy: Yeah.
Ajax: Good! I'm sick of running from these wimps!!!

Hmm, well...

For starters I'll nominate another one from Pulp Fiction.

Vincent: Have you ever given a foot massage?

Jules: Don't be talkin' to me about foot massages, I'm the foot fuckin' master.

Vincent: You give 'em a lot?

Jules: Shit, yeah! I've got my technique down and everything. I don't be ticklin' or nothin'.

Vincent: Would you give a guy a foot massage?

[pause]

Jules: Fuck you.

The whole scene in A Few Good Men highlighted by "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!" and ending in "I'm an officer in the U.S. Navy, and you're under arrest, you son of a bitch" was just tremendous.

Other candidates:

Star Trek: Generations

Data: Ohhhh, shit!

In America

Johnny: Are you in love with her?

Mateo: No... I'm in love with you. And I'm in love with your beautiful woman. And I'm in love with your kids. And I'm even in love with your unborn child. I'm even in love with your anger! I'm in love with everything that's living!

Men in Black

(Immediately after the alien/squid birth scene.)

K: Anything about that seem unusual to you?

(J just stares at him.)

The Empire Strikes Back

Han: Yeah? Then why are you following me? Afraid I was gonna leave without giving you a good-bye kiss?

Leia: I'd just as soon kiss a Wookiee!

Han: I can arrange that! You could use a good kiss!

I could probably think of a lot more, but that'll do for now, I think.

I believe that is directed to Connie rather than Kay, is it not?

As for me - pick anything from GF I or II, Goodfellas, A Few Good Men, or Office Space. I have to say my fave so far is the Office Space quote about missing work. I use variations of that a lot. Also this quote:

Peter: What would you do with a million bucks?

Neighbor: Besides two chicks at once?

Any line from the Shawshank Redemption. And also, ANYTHING from Batman Begins. And I mean ANYTHING.

In the movie the Crow there are umpteen million quotes that would fit this thread. I think the whole script may have been written on one line type quotes. However since opening day for this film this quote is one that I’ve always believed in. I feel that it is worth an honarble mention as one of the greatest movie quotes ever.


“Mother is the name of God on the lips and hearts of all children” – Brandon Lee as Eric Draven, The Crow


This was a very intense and real (except for the dead guy, of course) moment in the film. My mother didn’t fit the mold that this quote represents but somehow I can relate to it. A few Friends and relatives with amphetamine addicted parents probably play a part in my feelings on this one.


Second favorite quote would be (I didn’t want to leave on a downer).

“The dog’s name was Indiana” – Sean Connery, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

This is mainly because I can do a pretty good impression of Connery when I cite this quote. Who doesn’t have a Connery line that they can quote????

I also like
Drew: I'm thinking about taking that new chick from Logistics. If things go right I might be showing her my O-face. You know: Oh. Oh.

and...

Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man, two chicks at the same time, man.
Peter Gibbons: That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I had a million dollars I could hook that up, cause chicks dig a dude with money.
Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well the kind of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do.
Peter Gibbons: Good point.
Lawrence: Well what about you now? what would you do?
Peter Gibbons: Besides two chicks at the same time?

I quote movies every day. I absolutely cannot pick a favorite line ever.

However, some good ones (for either delivery, meaningfulness, philosphical value, or sheer ammusement) that have not yet been mentioned:

Mr Blonde (Resovoir dogs): "If he hadn't done, what I told him not to do, he'd be alive right now."

Peter Venkman (Ghostbusters): "We came, we saw, we kicked it's ass!"

Whore (Full metal jacket): "You want sucky sucky? Both you 15 dollas!"
Joker: "5 dollars is all my mom allows me to spend!"

Vinzini (Princess bride): "Finish him off. Your way."
Fezzek: "My way? Thanks Vinzini. Wait, what is my way?"
Vinzini: "Pick up one of those rocks over there, then hide behind the boulder and wait for the man in black. When he comes around the bend, and his head is in view, HIT IT WITH THE ROCK!"
(^my personal solution to most computer/equipment problems in daily life btw)

Stanely (UHF): "Is something the matter george?"
George: "Stanely, you don't wanna know."
Stanely: "Then why'd I ask?"
(^the genuine confusion is priceless)

and one I can't believe nobody has mentioned, possibly the smoothest line EVER:

Leia (Empire): "I love you."
Han: "I know."

I have a couple, not memorable or anything, but I laugh everytime:

From Happy Gilmore:

"You can trouble me for a warm glass of SHUT THE HELL UP!"

"Gold jacket, green jacket, who gives a shit?"

From Pulp Fiction:

"Goddamn, Jimmie! This is some serious gourmet shit! Usually, me and Vince would be happy with some freeze-dried Taster's Choice, but he springs this serious GOURMET shit on us! What flavor is this? "

From Tommy Boy:

"If you want me to take a dump in a box and make it garenteed, I will, I've got spare time."

ANYTHING from Major League I and II.

"You may run like Hayes, but you hit like shit."

"If that's not Shaquille O'Neal in left, that baby's outta here!"

"He'll need a rocket up his ass to catch this one, that baby's outta here!"

"It looks like Willie Hayes it trying to hit Rick Vaughn. Why not? Everydoes else in the league does!"

"I'm sorry, Dave. I can't do that." -- "2001: A Space Odyssey"

" 'Sed-A-Give?!?!' " -- "Young Frankenstein"

In the almost-any-line-from category, I'll go with "Holy Grail". If I have to pick just one line, (tonight) I'll go with:
"Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! HELP! HELP! I'm bein' repressed!"

And for some uncharacteristically bizarre reason, I've always been quite partial to Bill Murray's "It just doesn't matter" speech from "Meatballs". (It's the mantra that's gotten me through many a rah-rah corporate meeting.)

Too many great quotes.
Ones that stand out, since I use them a lot, are Kevin Smith quotes such as:

'I wasn't even supposed to be here today'
Clerks

'What? Like the back of a volkswagen?'
Mallrats

and yes, even:
'I think I just filled the cup'
Jay & Silent Bob strike back.

Problem is, when I am with some friends, about 50% of what I say are quotes or near-quotes insome way or the other.
So it's hard to decide.

Alot of good ones. The one I get the most milage out of is probably from Mallrats: "That kid is still playing on the escalator!"

Of course, Buckaroo Banzai is a goldmine of quotes. Personal favorite from that movie: "Shut up, Bigbooty, you coward. You are the weakest individual I ever know."
