Favorite Movie Quotes

Russell: "You want my opinion?"
Jerry: "Will I like it?"
Russell: "Well, of course not! It'll be based in reality!"

Sliding Doors (1996)

"Should I bolt every time I get that feeling in my gut when I meet someone new? Well, I've been listening to my gut since I was 14 years old, and frankly speaking, I've come to the conclusion that my guts have **** for brains."

"Sometimes I got so bored of trying to touch her breast that I would try to touch her between her legs. It was like trying to borrow a dollar, getting turned down, and asking for 50 grand instead."

"What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?"

High Fidelity (2000)

"She's gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen."

Say Anything... (1989)

I know it's barely a start and I have three from one movie and... I'm starting to get stuck on John Cusack films, but hey, what are ya gonna do? Please, feel free to submit your favorite quotes, ones that seem to ring through your head at either the most appropriate or inappropriate times during a single day. Or just ones you love. And remember, have fun people! Please?!

There are just soooooooo many which come to mind that the hardest thing was to stop adding them. I got these directly from the IMDb for better accuracy.

Captain Blood (1935) ~ Dr. Peter Blood: Up the riggings, you monkeys! Break out those sails and watch them fill with the wind that's carrying us all to freedom!

Sunset Blvd. (1950) ~ Max Von Mayerling: She was the greatest of them all. You wouldn't know, you're too young. In one week she received 17,000 fan letters. Men bribed her hairdresser to get a lock of her hair. There was a maharajah who came all the way from India to beg one of her silk stockings. Later he strangled himself with it!

Frankenstein (1931) ~ Henry Frankenstein: Look! It's moving. It's alive. It's alive... It's alive, it's moving, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, IT'S ALIVE!

Dracula (1931) ~ Count Dracula: Listen to them. Children of the night. What music *they* make!

Wolf Man, The (1941) ~ Sir John Talbot: Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms. And the autumn moon is bright.

Witness for the Prosecution (1957) ~ Sir Wilfrid:[/B] Be prepared for hysterics and even a fainting spell. Better have smelling salts handy and a nip of brandy.
Christine Vole: I do not think that will be necessary. I never faint because I am not sure that I will fall gracefully and I never use smelling salts because they puff up the eyes. I am Christine Vole.

Bringing Up Baby (1938) ~ Mrs. Random: Well, you look perfectly idiotic in those clothes.
David: These aren't my clothes.
Mrs. Random: Well, where are your clothes?
David: I've lost my clothes!
Mrs. Random: But why are you wearing *these* clothes?
David: Because I just went gay all of a sudden!

Topper (1937) ~ Marion Kerby: Let's go have some dinner.
Cosmo Topper: Oh no, we cannot eat on an empty stomach!
Marion Kerby: Then we better have a few drinks first!

Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) ~ Reverend Harper:[ Have you ever tried to persuade him that he wasn't Teddy Roosevelt?
Abby Brewster: Oh, no.
Martha Brewster: Oh, he's so happy being Teddy Roosevelt.
Abby Brewster: Oh... Do you remember, Martha, once, a long time ago, we thought if he'd be George Washington, it would be a change for him, and we suggested it.
Martha Brewster: And do you know what happened? He just stayed under his bed for days and wouldn't be anybody.

Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) ~ Mortimer Brewster: Insanity runs in my family... It practically gallops.

Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) ~ Jonathan Brewster: He wouldn't have died of pneumonia if I hadn't shot him.

Rear Window (1954) ~ L.B. "Jeff" Jefferies: Why does a man leave his house three times on a rainy night and comes back three times?
Lisa Carol Fremont: Maybe he likes the way his wife welcomes him home.

Harvey (1950) ~ Elwood P. Dowd: Here, let me give you one of my cards. Now if you should want to call me, use this number. This other one is the old number.

Harvey (1950) ~ Elwood P. Dowd: Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.

Rope (1948) ~ Brandon: Nobody commits murder just for the experience of committing it. Nobody except us.

Destry Rides Again (1939) ~ Washington 'Wash' Dimsdale: [Having sworn in his new deputy] Here's your badge. Don't let anybody see it.

After the thin Man (1936) ~ Nick Charles: You see, when it comes to words like that, an illiterate person--
Polly Byrnes: Whaddaya mean "illiterate"? My father and mother were married right here in the city hall!

After the thin Man (1936) ~ Nick Charles: Come on. Let's get something to eat. I'm thirsty.

The Thin Man (1934) ~ Nora Charles: Waiter, will you serve the nuts? I mean, will you serve the guests the nuts?

The Thin Man (1934) ~ Nick Charles: I'm a hero. I was shot 2 times in the Tribune.
Nora Charles: I read where you were shot 5 times in the tabloids.
Nick Charles: It's not true. He didn't come anywhere near my tabloids.

Soylent Green (1973) ~ Det. Thorn: Soon they'll be breeding us like cattle! You've got to warn everyone and tell them! Soylent green is made of people! You've got to tell them! Soylent green is people!

Black Cat, The (1934) ~ Hjalmar Poelzig: The phone is dead. Do you hear that Vitus? Even the phone is dead.

Ninotchka (1939) ~ Ninotchka: We don't have men like you in my country.
Leon: Thank you.
Ninotchka: That is why I believe in the future of my country.

Ninotchka (1939) ~ Count Leon D'Algout: Do you like me just a little bit?
Ninotchka: Your general appearance is not distasteful.

Ninotchka (1939) ~ Ninotchka: The last mass trials were a great success. There are going to be fewer but better Russians.

Ninotchka (1939) ~ Leon: A Russian! I love Russians! Comrade, I've been fascinated by your five-year plan for the last fifteen years.

Ninotchka (1939) ~ Ninotchka: What have you done for mankind?
Leon: Not so much for mankind...for womankind, my record isn't quite so bleak.

Ninotchka (1939) ~ Iranoff: We can say whatever we want. We can shout! We can complain! Look: "THE SERVICE IN THIS HOTEL IS TERRIBLE!" See? Nobody comes, nobody pays any attention! That's freedom.
Bujlianoff: That's bad management.

Ninotchka (1939) ~ Ninotchka: Must you flirt?

Maltese Falcon, The (1941) ~ Sam Spade: When you're slapped, you'll take it and like it.

Maltese Falcon, The (1941) ~ Sam Spade: I hope they don't hang you, precious, by that sweet neck. The chances are you'll get off with life. That means if you're a good girl, you'll be out in 20 years. I'll be waiting for you. If they hang you... I'll always remember you.

"For future reference... right handed men don't hold it in their left. Just one of those things."
"For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess, I'm suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I'm not leaving. Maybe I'm going home."

From Robbins' Good Burger (1997):

Kurt: You mess with Kurt, and you go in the grinder.
Dexter: Okay, now this "grinder." Is it a real machine or is it just some kind of metaphor?

When considering my favorite movie quote, I have to consider the classics. This particular film features the clasically trained, actor's actor, Patrick Swayze.

ROADHOUSE: "I F***ed guys like you in prison!"

(sigh) They just don't make 'em like this anymore, folks.

While not really a quote.. Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill! has
a great into:

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Violence.The word and the act. While violence cloaks itself in a plethora of disguises, its favourite mantle still remains - sex.

Yeah...I imagine that it's because Swayze's 10 million dollars per movie requirement is too steep.
