    What are your favorite movie quotes?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by cazann34, Mar 11, 2013.

    Two quotes I love come from 'The Matrix.' Trinity says to Mr Smith when he's defying physics by dodging her bullets. She then lifts the gun to his head, point blank and says, 'Dodge this.' The other is from Morpheus when he tells Neo to: 'stop trying to hit me and HIT me' when they are in combat mode.

    What are your favorite movie quotes?

    What was once before you - an exciting, mysterious future - is now behind you. Lived; understood; disappointing. You realize you are not special. You have struggled into existence, and are now slipping silently out of it. This is everyone's experience. Every single one. The specifics hardly matter. Everyone's everyone. So you are Adele, Hazel, Claire, Olive. You are Ellen. All her meager sadnesses are yours; all her loneliness; the gray, straw-like hair; her red raw hands. It's yours. It is time for you to understand this. Walk. As the people who adore you stop adoring you; as they die; as they move on; as you shed them; as you shed your beauty; your youth; as the world forgets you; as you recognize your transience; as you begin to lose your characteristics one by one; as you learn there is no-one watching you, and there never was, you think only about driving - not coming from any place; not arriving any place. Just driving, counting off time. Now you are here, at 7:43. Now you are here, at 7:44. Now you are... gone.

    Has to be:
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. [laughs] Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears in rain. Time to die.
    (from Bladerunner)

    Also anything said by the drill sergeant in the first half of full metal jacket.

    Could go on quoting for pages but I'll leave it at that ;)

    I've just thought of another one from Starship Troopers 'anything given has no value' Granted mine are more one liners but still very memorable.

    "I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, 'Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up.' Man bursts into tears. Says, 'But doctor… I am Pagliacci.' Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.”

    there's another from Liam Neeson in a movie, the name completely escapes me...grrrr....

    Liam Neeson (catholic) escapes troubles in Northern Ireland by going to London to look for work and ends up on a building site. On top of the scaffolding he meets another group from Northern Ireland and doesn't know what religion they are.
    "Are you one of us?" says the leader of the group rather menacingly
    Liam Neeson looks over the scaffold, he's 10 stories high and sees himself landing on a pile of bricks if he says the wrong thing and simply replies "Well I'm not one of them" and goes back to work.

    Sometimes, it's the exchange more than just a single quote. One of my faves, from a night scene in the made-during-the-war flick, "Operation Burma":

    "Hey, Joe. You okay?"

    "I'm okay, sweetheart." Pulls pin, throws grenade, loud blast. "And my name ain't Joe."

    Another from "Casablanca":

    Rick: Why are you closing me down?
    Renault: I'm shocked - shocked! - to find gambling going on here.
    Raoul (handing Renault a wad of bills): Your winnings, sir.
    Renault: Oh, thank you very much.

    'Food beyond compare. Food beyond belief. Mix it in a mincer and pretend it's beef.' Les Miserables - for some reason I really love that line.

    'I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.' Dr Strangelove - my all time favorite film. I could quote that film all day.

    Rhune Balot and Oeufcoque during the climax to Mardock Scramble: The First Compression. One of the grittiest anime movies I've ever seen with great characterization.


    Oeufcoque
    Are you all right?

    Rhune Balot
    I don't want to be turned into a fireball.

    Balot
    Is the last of our prey nearby?

    Oeufcoque
    Don't talk like that.

    Oeufcoque
    You're not enjoying this, I hope?

    Balot:
    I'm doing what you taught me to do, that's all.

    Oeufcoque
    A-ah...I-I didn't teach you to...

    Balot:
    Don't worry I'll pull it off.

    Still 'old friend.' You've managed to kill just about everyone else but like a *poor* marksman, you keep missing the target!!
