I thought it'd be fun to come up with a list of the all-time best movie lines.
Use the comments section below [comments closed] for your suggestions. Try and do it from memory. Don't worry about getting it exactly right.
Here's what comes to my mind:
"We'll always have Paris" - Rick in Casablanca
"Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship" - Rick in Casablanca
"We don't need no stinkin' badges!" - bandito in Treasure of Sierra Madre (actual quote is here: "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!")
"A man's got to know his limitations" - Clint Eastwood in Magnum Force
"Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" - Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry
"I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto" - Dorothy in Wizard of Oz
"What we have here ... is failure to communicate" - warden in Cool Hand Luke?
"A hospital? What is it?", "It's a big building with patients in it, but that's not important right now!" - Airplane!
"Say hello to my little friend!" - Tony Montana in Scarface
"I'll have what she's having." - Rob Reiner's mom in When Harry Met Sally after "Sally's" fake orgasm
Comments (we believe in free speech, but not necessarily these comments)
Lloyd Bridges character: "What do you make of it, Johnny?" Johnny: "You could make a broach or you could make a hat . . ." -- Airplane!; "Is it twue that you people are gifted? (unzip!) It's twue! It's twue!" -- Blazing Saddles - Lucy, 2010-10-07 09:57:24
The last line at the end of Fight Club (you have to see it to appreciate this line fully); Ed Norton to his girlfriend Helena Bonham Carter, as he realizes he has been living two lives for many months, one as a male-supremacist terrorist. As the buildings he has set charges to as his alternate personality start blowing up around him, he says to her, "You met me at a strange time in my life." - Diane, 2010-10-08 03:00:13
"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." -- Gone With The Wind; "I picked a bad day to stop sniffing glue." -- Airplane - Jeannie, 2011-03-23 06:04:46
