You always hear of great quotes from some really great movies. But rarely do you hear quotes from movies that, well, might not have been the blockbusters they should have. Some quotes have become so famous that saying them no longer elicits the movie, but just the words. In "The Terminator", Arnold Schwarzenegger is famous for saying, "I'll be back." It's part of our language now.

The quotes that follow probably will never gain that sort of fame, but in my opinion are memorable nonetheless. So, without further ado, here are some of my no-so-famous movie quotes (in no particular order).

1. Evil Roy Slade (1972)
Betsy Potter: Lets try some arithmetic. If you had six apples and your neighbor took three apples. What would you have?
Evil Roy Slade: A dead neighbor and all six apples.

2. Little Big Man (1970)
Old Lodge Skins: Let's go back to the tepee and eat, my son. My new snake wife cooks dog very well.
Jack Crabb: All right, Grandfather.
Old Lodge Skins: She also has a very soft skin. The only trouble with snake women is they copulate with horses, which makes them strange to me. She says she doesn't. That's why I call her (pause) "Doesn't Like Horses". But, of course, she's lying.

3. Von Ryan's Express (1965)
Maj. Eric Fincham: It would take you too long to strangle a man Colonel. The average Nazi would get impatient while you were doing it.

4. High Anxiety (1977)
Dr. Richard H. Thorndyke: Professor Little Old Man!!!
Dr. Vicktor Lillolman: "Lillolman". "Lillolman".

5. Slap Shot (1977)
Hyannisport broadcaster: The fans are standing up to them! The security guards are standing up to them! The peanut vendors are standing up to them! And by golly, if I could get down there, I'd be standing up to them!

6. The Long Riders (1980)
Cole Younger: When this is all over, I'm goin' to write a book; make myself more famous than I already am.
Frank James: I trust you'll give me a copy.
Cole Younger: Nope. You gotta pay, Frank; you gotta pay.

7. Xanadu (1980)
Danny McGuire: You know, I used to be in the music business, but now I'm what you might call retired. It's a refined name for bum.

8. The Warriors (1979)
Ajax: I'll shove that bat up your ass and turn you into a popsicle.

9. Harold And Maude (1971)
Maude: Harold, everyone has the right to make an ass out of themselves. You just can't let the world judge you too much.

10. The Longest Yard (1974)
Bogdanski:
What the hell was that?
Paul Crewe: That was a dropkick.
Bogdanski: Dropkick?
Paul Crewe: Dropkick.
Bogdanski: How much is that worth?
Paul Crewe: Three points.
Bogdanski: Three points?
Paul Crewe: Three points.
Bogdanski: For that? Bull****!

      I remember Evil Roy Slade, when one of the gang ladies made a snotty remark about the girl Roy loved he asked her,"Do you have pearsed ears?" The lady said no, his reply, "Do you want some?"
