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.
"Get off my lawn." from Gran Torino (hope no one said this yet)
hmmm, sorry for stealing this post idea...ehh, 2 years is long enough!
From "My Darling Clementine":
Wyatt Earp (to Bartender): Have you ever been in love, Jake?
Bartender: Nope, I've been a bartender all my life.
My Favourite Line,
Movie, Good Will Hunting
"How do you like them apples........"
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."
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?????
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!"
I'm not crazy, I've just been a very bad mood for the last 40 years!
"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.
How about "Fasten your seatbelts, it's gonna be a bumpy night" - bette davis "ALL ABOUT EVE"
From Braveheart "History was written by those who have hanged heroes."
"The world aint all sunshine and rainbows" Rocky (latest one!)
"But what about the rest of it?" - from "Paprika" my new favorite film.
"Where's that money, you silly old fool?" - from "It's a Wonderful Life."
"Because a woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets." - from "Titanic"
"Nobody puts Baby in the corner!" - from "Dirty Dancing"
"I'll have what she's having." - from "When Harry Met Sally"
"They may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!" - from "Braveheart"
Cheryl, I love that Braveheart line too
"You are so cool, you are so cool.." Alabama in True Romance
"I am no man!" said by Eowyn in The Lord of the Rings, just before she kills the Nazgul
"I think I got a knack for this Sh*t" Thelma and Loise
My 8-year-old daughters favorite line is from The Game Plan:
"If football was hard, it would be called ballet"
You can get a good look at a t-bone steak by sticking your head up the butcher ass but wouldn't you rather take the cows word for it. lol

"He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy" - from The Life of Brian by Monty Python
"Harry Potter...clearly, fame is not everything."
- Professor Snape
In the shawshank redemption, after spending a month in solitary confinement andy say's to red. "You either get busy livin' or get busy dying."
When red is alone in his cell and thinks that andy is going to commit suiside "The night drew out like a blade."
"I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? To tell you the truth, in all the commotion, I kinda lost track myself. But seeing as this is a .44 Magnum...the most powerful handgun in the world...and will blow your head clean off, you have to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well...do ya , punk?"
Oh, and another one: When Jack Nicholson comes through the door with an ax, in The Shining:
Gosh, there are SO MANY--lots already listed here. GREAT hub, BTW!
"I'd kiss you, but I just washed my hair..."
"I am big. It's the pictures that got small."
"In the end we are alone and there is nothing but the cold dark wasteland of eternity" Lestat (queen of the damned)

The fantasic Marlon Brando in On The Waterfront, not just the line but just the fact that line could just sum up loads of our lives, cracking movie, watch the actual scene below, pure magic !
It just pips Streetcar, I love Brando, total natural. You should read his bio if you haven't, one amazing person !

He has a few out the one that is best is " Marlon Brando " by Patricia Bosworth, if ya want drop me an email and I will send ya it !
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.
Somehow how I knew you would say that...
how about "...Because Ideas my friend are bullet proof.."
"I am cool"...resivior dogs
"Out of my way,Peck!!" Willow
"As you wish" Princess Bride
"Shut the Fuck up, Donnie" Big Lebowski
"Organic Squirrel Gets a Bicycle Helmet" Bedtime Stories
"Stop looking at me SWAN!!!" and "Its nudie magazine day!!" Billy Maddison
movies are awesome!!!!
Ghostbusters: "We came...We saw...We kicked its' _ss!"
Speaking of the Cohen Brothers, "...and Stay Out of the Woolworth's" -Oh Brother Where Art Thou
Another great movie.
'Cows! I hate cows worse than coppers!'
'Oh, George... not the livestock. '
* great soundtrack too.
OH MY GOD!!!!!! really? Oh George, not the livestock...
or "he got all loved up and turned into a ..horny toad.." "Damn, Im in a tight spot."
I thought it was just me..where I live, cows are abundant, and I frequently say..Oh George, not the livestock....and my kids hate it. I want to buy the soundtrack..soggy bottom boys..but I want the Siren Song, whatever its called...most of all.
"George, it looks like your foldin' money is becoming 'unstolt'".
'Damn, I'm in a tight spot!' lol, great film.
Tried to e-mail you the Siren song earlier but my computer crashed and has taken me about 2 hours to try and get back online, grrrrrrrr, lol, will try again later.
Think it's called 'Didn't leave nobody but the baby' if that's the one you mean.
"Big Mistake, Huge!" Pretty Woman
when she returned to the Shop looking all elegant.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities 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 furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

One of mine is the line by Azareal played by Jason Lee in the movie, Dogma, where who says, "I know how to make a HOLY bartender!" and then he shot up the bartender with holes. Holy bartender - brilliant.

What is your favorite movie based on a book?Personally, I love "The Road" based on Cormac McCarthy's novel. I didn't think it could be pulled off on the silver screen, but once you cast Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) as the protagonist, you pretty much can't go wrong...

Among my least favorite films are SHINING THROUGH and I AM SAM.My least favorite movie experiences usually involve somebody talking. What's that Darren Aronofsky film with the tree?
