Best Movie Lines : LUSENET : No Extra Day : One Thread

My vote for some of the greatest dialogue in film would probably fall to Last Boyscout. Talk about underappreciated...

Mike Mathews: It just happened, Joe.

Joe Hallenbeck: Sure, sure, it just happened. You tripped, fell on the floor and accidently stuck your dick into my wife. "Gee, I'm sorry, Mrs. H, this just isn't my week".

Crass? Yes. Inventive? Definately. Memorable? Without a doubt.

ok, so I am a big HST freak, so there are a lot from fear and loathing, but I won't use them cause they are really from the book. so...Grosse Point Blank had some winners:

Martin: They all have husbands and wives and children and houses and dogs, and, you know, they've all made themselves a part of something and they can talk about what they do. What am I gonna say? "I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How've you been?"

Grocer: Like I'm gonna put a bullet hole in your fuckin' forehead, and I'm gonna fuck the brain hole!

OK I lied here is one from F & L:

Raoul Duke: And that, I think, was the handle---that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting---on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark---the place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

God Damn I love that crazy fucker (Even if Better then Sex is not quite up to snuff)

A Joan Cusack classic from Working Girl: Sometimes I sing and dance around the house in my underwear. Doesn't make me Madonna. Never will

Of all the great lines in The Usual Suspects, my favorite is one that hardly anyone ever gets.

McMannis: 1..2..3..4..5..6..7.. Heh.... Oswald was a fag.

-- The Furry Gaffer (, September 25, 2000.

The Furry Gaffer is now my friend.

The Usual Suspects blew my socks off (and probably called 'em Nancy) the first time I watched it. And the second time. And the third...

I'm not sure what my favorite quote is; they're all great.

But since you already did Usual Suspects (which makes you my friend), I'll say Heat:

Vincent Hanna (Al) to McCauley (Robert), after pulling him over on the freeway:

"You wanna go for a cup of coffee?"

(after which we see the two of 'em in the diner together, sharing the screen for the first time...)

-- The Telemacher (, September 29, 2000.

Tom Arnold True lies "Fucker!"

-- Richard McLaughlin (, December 19, 2000.

Something about mary Step into my office why? Cause' you're fuckin fired

-- Richard McLaughlin (, December 19, 2000.

Leslie Nielsen - The Naked Gun

"Take the names of everyone here. I gotta go...inside."

-- James Patrick McArdle (, December 19, 2000.

"Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said 'I drank what?'".

Chris Knight - Real Genius, baby.

"A blue woman with a blue dog. That's twenty thousand points. I gotta get her panties."

Catfight - My Chauffeur

"Camel Farts make him nervous"

Bone (Penn) about Abdul (Teller) - My Chauffeur

"Just languish there, darling. And don't molest anything."

Ed - The January Man

Damn, all of those movies are quote fests. I could do this forever.

-- Michael Fitts (, December 21, 2000.

Well.... people may find this stupid, but really...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a great film and had some great one- liners and gags. I mean there was a reason it was number 1 in the country for like 2 months and what not.

Mike:"Hey Donnie!! Wheel of Fourtune Dude!!"

(after spinning Michaelangelo on his shell to attack Foot Soldiers..)

Don: I guess they're not game show fans!

Mike: And I thought everybuddy loved Vanna!"


Danny: "Don't shoot!!!!"

Raph: "I don't think it's loaded kid."


Mike: (looking at Shredder)Maybe all that hardware is for making coldslaw.


Mike: Bleeker? *sniff sniff* Nope! this is only ninth street!


Mike: At what point... did we loose control here? Don: Maybe someone should tell him that... we're the good guys.
