Jules Winnfield recites Ezekiel 25:17 - "There's a passage I got memorized, seems appropriate for this situation: Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and fuuuurious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will KNOW my name is the LORD when I lay my vengeance upon you."
"Oh, I'm sorry. Did I break your concentration?"
"No one needs to know about this except you, me and Mr.-soon-to-be-living-the-rest-of-his-short-ass-life-in-agonizing-pain-rapist here."
"Now let me ask you a question, Jules. When you drove in here, did you notice a sign out in front that said, "Dead nigger storage"?"
"We should have fuckin' shotguns."
Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back
"HEY BITCH YOU EVER HAD YOUR ASSHOLE LICKED BY A FAT MAN IN AN OVERCOAT?!"
"I am the master of the C.L.I.T. Remember this fucking face. Whenever you see C.L.I.T., you'll see this fucking face. I make that shit work. It does whatever the fuck I tell it to. No one rules the C.L.I.T like me. Not this little fuck, none of you little fucks out there. I AM THE C.L.I.T. COMMANDER! Remember that, commander of all C.L.I.T.s! When it comes down to business, this is what I do. I pinch it like this. OOH you little fuck. Then I rub my nose with it..."
"THE SIGN! ON THE BACK OF THE CAR! SAID 'CRITTERS! OF HOLLYWOOOOOOD'! YOU DUMB - FUCK!!"
"Sorry to interrupt sirs, but we've got a 10-07 on our hands." "Aw Jesus, again Ben?!" "No, bullshit, because I wasn't WITH a hooker today, ha-HA!"
I'm gonna go for some of my favorites that haven't been touched on yet.
Ravenous Colonel Hart: It's lonely being a cannibal. Tough making friends.
Ives: That was very... sneaky.
Ives: We won't kill indiscriminately. No... selectively. We don't want to break up families.
Ives: I found your Colonel Reich up there ... or what was left of him. You didn't finish! Well, I can't blame you: he was tough. [snorts] Ives: But then, uh ... a good soldier ought to be.
Marcy Dawson: It's survival of the fittest, Max, and we've got the fucking gun.
Maximillian Cohen: 9:22, Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun, so once when I was six, I did. At first the brightness was overwhelming, but I had seen that before. I kept looking, forcing myself not to blink, and then the brightness began to dissolve. My pupils shrunk to pinholes and everything came into focus and for a moment I understood.
Maximillian Cohen: 10:15, personal note: It's fair to say I'm stepping out on a limb, but I am on the edge and that's where it happens.
As an aside while it isn't a movie the TV show Brimstone had quite a few good quotes.
The Devil: If it means anything, I'm sorry. Sort of. Well... no, I'm not.
The Devil: I have always advocated family values, all the way back to Cain and Abel.
[The Devil and Stone meet in an elevator for a conference] The Devil: You know, before they invented the elevator, I had to walk all the way from hell. Ezekiel Stone: Glad to hear it. The Devil: Second throughts, Ezekiel? Ezekiel Stone: Can't you find someone else to torture? The Devil: Millions of them. They can wait. Everyone's in such a rush. I say, stop and smell the burning flesh of sinners.
Father Horn: The Devil, he appears to you as a man? Ezekiel Stone: Yeah. He looks a lot like a kid I used to beat the crap out of in sixth grade... I'm sure that's on purpose.
The Devil: These microbes never cease to amaze me. An orgy of pain and suffering in such a little tiny package. You really have to give that old bitch Mother Nature a lot of credit. Ezekiel Stone: Mother Nature? What the hell she's got to do with this? Pain and suffering's your domain, isn't it? The Devil: Please, Ezekiel. My job's not to decide who lives and dies. My business is with the soul. And I have never damned a soul who didn't thoroughly deserve it. Mother Nature is a completely different story. She kills indiscriminately, good and evil alike. Why she gets all the good press, I'll never know.
For similar reasons, I've been interviewed but never chosen. Don't be so sure of the PhD-gets-you-out-of-jury-duty-free card because one of my colleagues got chosen for a case. In fact, he's an economist, which usually is doubly troubling.
