    What is your favorite Line in a movie?

    One of my favorite movies is Aliens - Favorite line,

    (Bill Paxton) Pvt Hudson: With those things running around out there "you can count me out"

    Then after a brief discussion on who should go and hook up the remote link,

    Bishop volunteers and Hudson says - "Yeah, Bishop should go"

    If you haven't seen it, it is worth it.

    My favorite lines come from "Gone with the Wind".  I do have many favorites in the film, but I'll choose the last lines at the end of the movie when Scarlett smiles and says:

    "After all, tomorrow is another day"

    Great ending for a great film!

    Grosse Point Blank: a professional killer goes back his hometown for his high school reunion.
    Martin Blank (John Cusack) re-acquainting, after a decade, with his former prom date's father :

    Mr. Newberry: I visualized you in a haze as one of those slackster, flannel-wearing, coffee-house misanthropes I've been seeing in Newsweek.
    Marty: No no no, I went the other road. Six figures, doing business with leadpipe cruelty, mercenary sensibility. You know ... sports, sex, no real relationships.

    The ending line from "Casablanca," the 1942 classic movie:

    "Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

    1. Silent Assassin profile image60
      Silent Assassinposted 9 years ago in reply to this

      unfortunately for me, although there is no denying that casablanca is a classic, that line, like so many has been so overdone, copied and used in bad taste that I find it hard to appreciate now.  But that is just my opinion, Not my intention to ruin it for you.

    First of all props to the man who started this thread that Bill Paxton line is classic along with "Whoopi-Fu@&in'-Doo!" that he says earlier in the film.

    My favorite line from any movie ever huh?????

                          Hmmm.

    That would have to be "I want you to go to your window and stick your head out and yell,"I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take this anymore!"  from the prophetic film Network.

    The character of Howard Beale as played by Peter Finch is the most important film role of all time because he foretold about how our network news channels were pulling further and further away from any real truth in favor of reality-TV in it was made in 1976!

    According to Netflix >> Paddy Chayefsky predicted today's rash of trash television and shock-laden news broadcasts. The writer of Marty created network news anchor Howard Beale (Peter Finch), who loses his mind on the air. Unfortunately, his outrageous rants boost the ratings and intrigue cutthroat network executives Faye Dunaway and Robert Duvall. William Holden contrasts their avarice as an old-school TV journalist hopelessly out of step.

    What's even more apropos is that Peter Finch won is Best Actor Oscar posthumously because people who speak the truth in the media end up with fates just like that.

    There are so many good lines but one I like is from the movie Tombstone, at the end between ringo and doc holiday.
    Ringo:"well...I didnt think you had it in ya"
    Doc:"I'm ya huckleberry"
    Ringo looking scared:" My fights not with you, holiday"
    Doc" I beg to differ, sir. We started a game we never got to finish. Play for blood remember?"
    Ringo"I was just fooling about"
    Doc smiles:"I wasnt"

    I also like heaps of lines from the tv series Blackadder, starring Rowan Atkinson
    this one from the 3rd series with prince george III, (during the revolutionary times) playing his butler.

    Prince George III: "Tell me about these oppressed masses, what are they so worked up about?"

    Blackadder:" They are worked up sir, because they are so poor, they are forced to have children; simply as to provide a cheap alternative to turkey at christmas.  Disease and deprivation stalk our land, like two giant.....stalking things. and the working man is poised to overthrow us!"

    "Frankly My Dear, I Do Not Give a Damn."  As Rhett walks out the Scarlet in the closing scene of Gone With the Wind.  It is so funny because in the book they mention she is 28 and it appears as if half her life is over, which shows the differences in life expectancy then and now.  I think this line was very brave to use in the movie as it was censored five thousand dollars to remain true to the line from the book.  It is great to see when movies try to remain close to the books on which they are based.  By the way, I think Scarlet was so selfish and I never really understood her, but is still one of my favorite movies and books.

    Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.  The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.  Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
