What are some lines of dialogue that impacted you and/or you really remember?

A king may move a man, a father may claim a son. But remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice. Remember that.
-- King Baldwin IV (voiced by Edward Norton) Kingdom of Heaven

A lot of the lines in Magnolia.
"And the book says, 'We may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with us.'"
Claudia Gator: "Now that I've met you, would you object to never seeing me again? "
Frank T.J. Mackey: "I'm quietly judging you."
Earl Partridge: "I'll tell you the greatest regret of my life: I let my love go. "
Claudia Gator: "I'll tell you everything, and you tell me everything, and maybe we can get through all the piss and shit and lies that kill other people. "

MR. BROWN
What the fuck was I talking about ?

MR. ORANGE
You said "True Blue" was about a guy, you said it's a girl who meets a nice guy
But "Like a Virgin" was a metaphor for big dicks.

MR. BROWN
Ok, let me tell ya what "Like a Virgin"'s about.
It's all about this cooze who's a regular fuck machine.
I'm talking, morning, day,night, afternoon,
Dick, dick,dick, dick, dick,dick, dick, dick, dick.

MR. BLUE
How many dicks is that?

MR. WHITE
A lot.

MR. BROWN
Then one day she meets a John Holmes motherfucker, and it's like, whoa baby.
I mean, this cat is like Charles Bronson in "The Great Escape." He's diggin tunnels.
Now she's gettin this serious dick action,
She's feelin something she ain't felt since forever. Pain. Pain

JOE
Chew? Toby Chew? No.

MR. BROWN
It hurts. It hurts her. It shouldn't hurt.
You know, her pussy should be Bubble-Yum by now.
But when this cat fucks her, it hurts. It hurts like it did the first time.
You see the pain is reminding a fuck machine what is once like to be a virgin.
Hence, "Like a Virgin."

One time when I was at Sonics with some buddies, I asked the girl taking orders how big the biggest hotdog was, she didn't know what to say so I asked if it was like a John Holmes motherfucker. She didn't respond but we were all cracking up.

The ending sequence in 25th Hour.

The desert scene in Casino, when Nicky Santino get's mad over the rumors about Sam Rothstein taking complaints back to the bosses.

Is it so terribly inconceivable to comprehend God with one's senses?
Why does he hide in a cloud of half-promises and unseen miracles?
How can we believe in the faithful when we lack faith?
What will happen to us who want to believe, but can not?
What about those who neither want to nor can believe?
Why can't I kill God in me?
Why does He live on in me in a humiliating way - despite my wanting to evict Him from my heart?
Why is He, despite all, a mocking reality I can't be rid of?

"The Good Shepherd":

Joseph Palmi: Let me ask you something... we Italians, we got our families, and we got the church; the Irish, they have the homeland, Jews their tradition; even the ***********s, they got their music. What about you people, Mr. Wilson, what do you have?

Edward Wilson: The United States of America. The rest of you are just visiting.

- How do you know you're God?
- Simple. When I pray to Him, I find I am talking to myself.

"Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminately, and so shall we. For no creatures under God are as we are...none so like him as ourselves."

Orson Welles' one scene in The Third Man, when he's talking about killing all of those "dots" in exchange for money on the ferris wheel.

Bogart's entire speech at the end of Casablanca. Probably the most memorable bit of dialogue from any movie. Ever.

With Mozart's "Gran Partita", Adagio playing in the foreground...

"On the page it looked nothing. The beginning simple, almost comic. Just a pulse... bassoons and basset horns...like a rusty squeezebox. Then suddenly, high above it...an oboe, a single note, hanging there unwavering, till a clarinet took over and sweetened it into a phrase of such delight.

This was no composition by a performing monkey! This was a music I'd never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing, it had me trembling. It seemed to me that I was hearing the voice of God."
