    What is your favorite line from the movie "Cool Hand Luke"?

    The other day I stumbled upon a script online from the movie "Cool Hand Luke" and I realized that there are so many great lines in that movie, other than the two most remembered lines we all know, and those are my favorites lines.  The writers were brilliant no doubt!  Thank you for sharing your favorite line.

    "What we have here~~is a failure to communicate."
    This has to be my favorite line, Theresa, because after 48 years, it's the ONLY one I can remember!  Great movie.  I actually saw it in New Jersey, on the U.S. Army base Fort Dix while visiting my husband after his Basic Training. (June 1967 BC~~Before Children!!) Oh goodness....You really have me stretching my memory!!  Good exercise!  Have a peaceful week-end!  Paula

      Hahaha, Paula, that is indeed one of the two of my favorite lines I am referring to in my question. Wow, thank you for sharing about when you saw the movie! My dad was in the Army too. I'm happy to have stretched your memory.  Peace

      You're most welcome, Paula. You added much interest in your answer by telling a little background of when you first saw the movie.  LOL ...No miscommunication at all!  I appreciate you taking the time to answer.

    "Yes sir, boss" is another. I use to mutter near a hush that at times in particular work situations with a little contempt hidden behind it.

    "I can eat 50 eggs."
    And, sure enough, he can!
    In addition to that one is the ever popular, "What we have here is a failure to communicate."
    The understatement of the century.

      Hi Austinstar, Oh, you brought back that scene and just watching him and now thinking of him eating those 50 eggs makes my stomach so queasy. Can you even imagine? That last one seems to be the most memorable for most everyone.

    Definitely "What we've got here is failure to communicate."

      Hi Jill, yes, that seems to be the consensus here. In the script I found, there were so many great lines throughout the entire movie that I did not remember, besides this most favorite one here. Thank you for answering.
