Since we were talking about lines from Major League in another thread and AFI just had a show on this, what is your favorite?

Mine would be from Cahill, US Marshall. John Wayne's kid has just called him "Daddy" and he knocked him onto his ass in the dirt and says something like...

"You can call me Dad, you can call me Father, you can call me Jacob, you can call me Jake, you can call me a dirty son of a bitch.... but if you call me Daddy again, I'll finish this fight"

My second would be from Outlaw Josey Wales - Josey says to a bounty hunter who is thinking about trying to take in Josey who has just said "It's a living" - Josey says "Dying ain't much a living, boy"





We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

So many movies...

But since we're talking favorites, and not 'greatest of all time':

Dr. Frankenstein (Gene Wilder): Damn your eyes!
Igor (Marty Feldman): [to audience] Too late.


And since we get seconds, one that seems to have stuck with me is from a gem called "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three":

(Just as the cop/protagonist finally gets the drop on the main crook, the two of them alone in a New York City subway tunnel)

Mr. Blue (Robert Shaw): Excuse me, do you people still execute in this state?
Lt. Garber (Walter Matthau): What? Oh, execute. No, not at the moment.
Mr. Blue: Pity. [steps on the third rail and electrocutes himself]

Some of my favorites off of the top of my head:


Bill Paxton (Aliens) - "I say we grease this rat f*ck son of a bitch right now."

Patrick Swayze (Next Of Kin) - "Oh you haven't seen hell yet......but it's commin."

Vince Vaughn (Dodgeball) - "Your adopted.....your parents don't even love you."

"Hey White....you look awful fat in those pants."

Ben Stiller (Dodgeball)- "F*cking Chuck Norris."

Stiffler (American Wedding) - "I TOLD YOU HE WANTED TO F*CK ME !!!"

(Young Guns) - "Murphey's men are gonna want blood, brains and balls for this."

John Belushi (Animal House) - "What the f*ck happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer..."

You could pull out pretty much the entire scrpit of "The Big Lebowski" here, although my personal favorite line is the Dude's response to the infamous "The Jesus" monolouge: "Yeah, well, man, that's just, like, your opinion.", though "You're not wrong, Walter, you're just an asshole" has to be a close second.

And anyone who's ever worked retail has contemplated getting Randall's "this job would be great if it wasn't for the fucking customers" line from "Clerks" tattooed upon themselves somewhere.

I was actually given my middle name after the guy who plays the outlaw Joe Meehan in that movie who was a friend of my parents out in Cali. If nothing else, I can say I was named after someone who rode with John Wayne in the movies.

Citizen Kane (not just for the dialogue and its connection to the movie's mystery, but the delivery):

"A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl."

From "Animal House":
Otter: Ladies and gentlemen, I'll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests - we did.
[winks at Dean Wormer]
Otter: But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Greg - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!

Both from Kill Bill:

The Bride: Looked dead, didn't I? But I wasn't. But it wasn't from lack of trying, I can tell you that. Actually, Bill's last bullet put me in a coma - A coma I was to lie in for four years. When I woke up, I went on what the movie advertisements refer to as a 'roaring rampage of revenge.' I roared. And I rampaged. And I got bloody satisfaction. I've killed a hell of a lot of people to get to this point, but I have only one more. The last one. The one I'm driving to right now. The only one left. And when I arrive at my destination, I am gonna kill Bill."



Pai Mei: [punches through a block of wood from three inches away] Since your arm now belongs to me, I want it strong. Can you do that?
The Bride: I can, but not that close.
Pai Mei: Then you can't do it. What if your enemy is three inches in front of you, what do you do then? Curl into a ball? Or do you put your fist through him?



HBK: You’re flat broke aren’t you?
MJ: Please let me wrestle on RAW!
HBK: Fine, but I ain’t wearin’ no fruity tassels.
MJ: Are these your mirror pants?
HBK: Give me those!

"Melodrama coming from you is about as natural as an oral bowel movement." - Clerks

"The way your dad looked at it, this watch was your birthright. He'd be damned if any of the slopes were gonna get their greasy yellow hands on his boy's birthright. So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then when he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable piece of metal up my ass for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you." - Pulp Fiction

Actually that is from "Big Jake"

Mine is the following:
"Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, 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."

either that or:
"Stay gold Ponyboy"
-Ralph Macchio as Johnny in "The Outsiders"

Tons of funny ones spring to mind immediately, mainly from Caddyshack, Blazing Saddles, and Bulworth, but I'm going to have to go with:


Butch: "You okay?"

Marsellus Wallace: "Naw man, I'm pretty fuckin' far from okay."


An absolute classic, in my opinion.
