    "You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude." (Walter, The Big Lebowski)

    "He died in a bizarre gardening accident... The authorities said 'best leave it unsolved'." (David & Nigel, This is Spinal Tap)

    Talking about the US Ambassador visiting the radio telescope at Parkes, while they were trying to locate the "lost" A11 CSM: "(He's a) space nut... knows everything about Apollo 11." "Does he know where it is??" (Al Burnett & 'Mitch' Mitchell in The Dish)

    That reminds me of one I love but can't ever quote in a conversation, because appropriate contexts to use it in never arise and almost nobody would recognize it because the movie isn't well known. It's from "Brainsmasher: A Love Story", which starred Andrew Dice Clay as a bouncer and co-starred Teri Hatcher before she was famous. He's previously taught an old lady a fighting technique called "the one-two": first a strike to the groin, then one to the head. When they get attacked by Chinese warrior-monks ("not ninjas!"), he reminds her "Granny! The one-two!" and she responds "The one-two!" and smacks one between the legs with her cane while shouting "ONE!... This guy's got no balls!" (It didn't work, so she didn't get to step two.)

    Liking little-known movies is a pain in the butt for people who like to conversationally quote movies. I frequently need to remind myself that, when any kind of change in plans is happening, it would be pointless to mimic Michael Douglas's way of saying "Change in plans" in the scene when he first arrives in "The Ghost and the Darkness", because nobody would know what I was doing.

    Pretty much everything Otto says in A Fish Called Wanda.

    Sample:

    KEN: What's goin' on?

    OTTO: Well Ken, I'm going to ask you some questions while I eat my chips. First, who was the philosopher who developed the concept of the superman in "Also Sprach Zarathustra" No? That's a chip up the nose I'm afraid. Friedrich Nietzsche. Second, in which book did Nietzsche claim that all higher culture is based on cruelty? Are you thinking or are you in mid-stutter? No? Mm? "Beyond Good and Evil"! I guess I'm gonna have to ask you an easy one huh Ken. OK, ummm, lemme think... ummmmmmmmmm Where are the diamonds?"

    OTTO: You English! You think you're so superior don't you? Well you're the filth of the planet! A bunch of pompous, badly dressed, poverty-stricken, sexually repressed football hooligans!"

    And since others have already mentioned Ghostbusters:

    PETER: "Go get her, Ray!"

    RAY: "Gozer the Gozerian? Good evening. As a designated representative of the city, county and state of New York, I hereby order you to cease any and all paranormal activity and return forthwith to your place of origin, or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

    PETER: "That oughta do it, thanks very much Ray."

    GOZER: "ARE YOU A GOD?"

    RAY: "....No?"

    GOZER: "THEN... DIIIIIIIEEE!"

    WINSTON: "Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say "YES!"

    That actor is now a singer, but his music fans all know that one role, and he says it's his favorite role he ever had, so he doesn't get tired/annoyed with it. To this day, he still frequently inserts the line into his concerts, sometimes toying with his audience about it when they start requesting it, pretending not to know what they want or not to be sure whether or not he wants to do it. Then he says it and everybody has a laugh and he goes on to the next song.

    Who do you mean? Christopher Guest or Mandy Petinkin? Because Guest was in Spinal Tap if I recall...

    With "that actor", do you mean Mandy Patinkin (Inigo) or Christopher Guest (Count Rugen aka the six fingered man)?

    Patinkin Montoya (who apparently also starred on "Chicago Hope" for a while, along with an assortment of smaller parts in other shows/movies). It is, after all, HIS line, not that other guy's.

    Harry Callahan: "I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?'

    Well, do ya, punk?"

    An executive to an underling: "That's why my tie costs more than your suit." I don't remember where it came from. I just thought it was funny. I'm pretty sure it was science fiction.

    Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.

    Go, and never darken my towels again.

    Marry me and I'll never look at another horse!

    One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know.

    Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?

    Policeman: "A hermit eh? Then why's your table set for four?"
    Groucho: "That's nothing. My alarm clock is set for eight."

    Groucho: "That's in every contract, that's what you call a sanity clause."
    Chico: "You can't a fool a me there ain't no sanity clause"

    We've got to speed things up in this hotel.
    Chef, if a guest orders a three-minute egg, give it to him in two minutes.
    If he orders a two-minute egg, give it to him in one minute.
    If he orders a one-minute egg, give him a chicken and let him work it out for himself.

    Groucho: You know I think you're the most beautiful woman in the world?
    Woman: Really?
    Groucho: No, but I don't mind lying if it gets me somewhere

    We must remember that art is art.
    Well, on the other hand water is water isn't it?
    And east is east and west is west.
    And if you take cranberries and stew them like applesause
    they taste much more like prunes than rubarb does.
    Now uh...now you tell me what you know.

    You can leave in a taxi. If you can't get a taxi, you can leave in a huff.
    If that's too soon, you can leave in a minute and a huff.

    Remember men, we're fighting for this woman's honour; which is probably more than she ever did.
