    Cool Favorite movie quotes

    Thought I should put this here, rather than in Fun & Games(?).

    "If I'm going to {someplace unpleasant mentioned in the Bible}, I'm going to {someplace unpleasant mentioned in the Bible} playing the piano!"

    --Jerry Lee Lewis in Great Balls of Fire!

    Most of my favorite movie quotes aren't really board-appropriate, but here's a few that are:

    "This guy's a waste of skin." - Russ Thomson Sr., Honey I Shrunk the Kids

    "Blue Steel? Ferrari? Le Tigra? They're the same face! Doesn't anybody notice this? I feel like I'm taking crazy-pills! I invented the piano key necktie, I invented it! What have you done, Derek? You've done nothing! NOTHING!" - Jacobim Mugatu, Zoolander

    "Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam." - Buck Russell, Uncle Buck
    Calm down, have some dip. - George Carlin

    • We never lost an American in space and we're sure as hell not going to lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. (Gene Kranz - Apollo 13)


    • How's the serenity? ..... so much serenity. (Darryl Kerrigan - The Castle)


    • The powers that be have been very busy lately, clawing over each other to position themselves for the game of the millennium. Maybe I can help deal you back in.... I didn't realise I was out.... Well, maybe not out... but certainly being handed your hat! (S.R. Hadden talking to Ellie in Contact. Honorable mention also for his "Wanna take a ride???")

    From Casablanca:

    Major Strasser: How about New York?
    Rick: Well there are certain sections of New York, Major, that I wouldn't advise you to try to invade.

    "Open the pod bay doors, HAL."

    "They're taking me with them... with the Phoenix... going to circle the universe forever. I'm with them now... be back this way again some day. Doolittle, before it's too late, there's one last thing I want to tell you... ... ... *sshhhhhhh*"

    One of those I could never get out of my head again. This is, of course, Talby.. his last words, in John Carpenter's "Dark Star".
    The effort to understand the universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little above the level of farce, and gives it some of the grace of tragedy.

    I second that... and of course the real Gene Kranz liked this line too.

    From Dr. Strangelove:

    President Merkin Muffley: "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room."

    General "Buck" Turgidson: "Sir, you can't let him in here. He'll see everything. He'll see the big board!"

    Again, from Dr. Strangelove:

    Maj. T.J. "King" Kong: Survival kit contents check. In them you'll find: one .45 caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing: antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair a nylon stockings. Shoot, a fellah could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.

    Even better when following the Agent's preceding line, "Only human."

    There are a bunch I like from Blazing Saddles, but I'm not sure any are BAUT appropriate.... OK, maybe one:

    One of my favorites. Actually A League of Their Own has my two favorite baseball movie quotes, the other (also from Jimmy Dugan) is "It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great"

    Cool Famous lines from famous movies....

    Guys, I like the line that George Macready gives as Paul Mireau in "Paths of Glory"; "If those sweethearts won't face German bullets, they'll face French ones!" Macready's breathless delivery and style really made it stick with me....I use it as a signature line on the French Gun and Weapons Forums....since the film was banned in France for many years, and supposedly something like this really happened in the Great War...

    Dr. Stranglove is full of memorable lines, but Colonel Batguano and Wing Commodore Mandrake at the phone booth/coke machine was a classic.....

    "Who are you, and what's that funny suit you got on?" etc...the phrase "Deviated Pre-vert" was just too much for me the first time I watched this film....

    I am surprised that no one has mentioned "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" What could top Alfonso Bedoya?? "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!!" This line has been made fun of in other movies as well....Like Weird Al's "UHF", and some others that I cannot recall....."Badgers? We don't need no stinkin' Badgers!!"

    I know I am breaching etiquette with two back to back posts but...

    "Bueller.... Bueller... Bueller..."

    And of course the classic:

    Cameron: I'm dying.
    [Phone rings, and Cameron answers]
    Ferris: You're not dying, you just can't think of anything good to do.

    And the prophetic:

    Jeannie: Why are you here?
    Boy in Police Station (Charlie Sheen): Drugs.
