    The army doesn't like more than one disaster in a day.
    Looks bad in the newspapers and upsets civilians at their breakfast.


    A prayer's as good as bayonet on a day like this.


    If it's a miracle, Colour Sergeant, it's a short chamber Boxer Henry point 45 caliber miracle.
    And a bayonet, sir, with some guts behind.

    From Quigley Down Under:

    Matthew Quigley: I don't know where we're goin', but there's no sense bein' late.

    Matthew Quigley [To a dying Marston, just after being forced to use a Colt revolver to win their showdown]: I said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn't know how to use it.

    From El Diablo:

    Billy Ray Smith: You just shot that man in the back!
    Van Leek: His back was to me.

    From The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: Across the 8th Dimension::

    Buckaroo Banzai [to ‘New Jersey’, while performing brain surgery]: You can check your anatomy all you want, and even though there may be normal variation, when it comes right down to it, this far inside the head it all looks the same. No, no, no, don't tug on that. You never know what it might be attached to.

    Lord John Whorfin: Laugh-a while you can, monkey-boy.

    From The Right Stuff:

    Alan Shepard: Request permission to relieve bladder.

    I remember it from The Simpsons but as is often the case with that show it may be a direct copy or variation on a movie line...

    "I fear I have become a buttercup of winter."

    I just love that line. Followed by, "Don't say that" if I remember correctly.

    Meanwhile, I am a Buttercup for all seasons.

    And since I posted that, had better post a favorite movie quote:

    OK, two more from Groucho

    Woman: Oh hold me, hold me closer, closer.
    Groucho: If I held you any closer I'd be on the other side of you.

    I know, you're a woman who's had nothing but dirty breaks.
    Well, we can clean and tighten your brakes, but you'll have to say in the garage all night.

    And one more from Casablanca for good measure

    Renault: I've often wondered what in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca.
    Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
    Renault: Waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
    Rick: I was misinformed.

    My family and I enjoy repeating movie lines to each other:

    Chicken Run:
    "Oh, it's gnomes now!"
    "I told you they was organized!"


    The Princess Bride lines already mentioned, but here's one more:
    "No more rhyming now, I mean it!"
    "Anybody wanna peanut?"

    "Mrs. Tweedy! The chickens are revolting!"
    "Finally something we agree on."

    Captain Kirk is being held by the throat a foot off the floor by a super strong space alien, who is only using one arm to do so:

    Kirk: (strangled gargling noise)

    Alien: "Your species is even weaker than I anticipated, so pathetic." (Brings Kirk closer so they are nose to nose) "What are you trying to say?"

    Kirk snatches the aliens blaster out of his open holster and shoots him in the stomach.

    Kirk: "I said: 'I've got your gun'."

    <-- A huge quote geek. I won't even try to list my favorites, as it's impossible to pick choose when there's always a situation in which one or another is applicable, or when a random quote pops into my mind unannounced.

    Hot Shots!
    Admiral Benson: (talking to Lt. Block) You're right; "Dead Meat" Thompson only had a *small* family. Kid's a brat, wife's on the sauce--yeah, better off dead. What size shoes do you wear?
    Block: A nine, sir.
    Benson: Good, it's settled then; we'll send Harley to the front.

    Ghostbusters
    Stantz: I tried to think of the most harmless thing, something I loved from my childhood, something that could never, ever possibly destroy us: Mr. Stay-Puft.
    Venkman: Nice thinkin', Ray.
    Stantz: We used to roast Stay-Puft Marshmallows by the fire at Camp Wakanda...
    Venkman: Ray has gone bye-bye, Egon; what have you got left?
    Spengler: Sorry, Venkman; I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    Sulu: You did it, sir--
    Kirk: I did *nothing*, except get caught with my britches down; must be getting senile. Mr. Saavik, you go *right* on quoting regulations!

    Last one for now...

    Face/Off
    Archer (as Castor): You...you killed them?
    Castor (as Archer): Beats paying the bill, right? I mean, if a face-lift costs five grand...

    From Tremors, a line that makes me laugh out loud, after a very long intense scene:

    "Looks like you broke into the wrong blankety-blank rec room, didn't ya!"

    Ah Ripley! She's so awesome.

    "Changes in air density, my ***."

    "They can bill me!"

    "You've been a part of my life so long, I can't remember anything else."

    "Ripley, you've fought one of these things before, right?"

    "Yes".

    "So, like, what didja do?"

    "I died."
    "Occam" is the name of the alien race that will enslave us all eventually. And they've got razors for hands. I don't know if that's true but it seems like the simplest answer."

    Yes, some really good quotes from these movies. I think my favourite though was Newt's simple and earnest comment when told that the men protecting her & Ripley were soldiers:

    "It won't make any difference."

    Sends a shiver up my spine every time!

    I remember one from Aliens between Hudson, a male space marine, and Vasquez a female space marine:

    Hudson: Hey Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?
    Vasquez: No. Have you?

    Two of my favorite lines from Aliens (both of which I use in real life):

    "That's it man, game over man, game over!"

    " I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

    God, as long as we're dropping Aliens lines (it's still my all-time favorite movie), here are my two favorites:

    Ripley (pointing to Newt): She survived longer than that with no weapons, and no training!
    (Newt salutes Hudson)
    Hudson: Why don't you put her in charge?!

    And:

    Hudson: What are we going to do now, what are going to do?!
    Burke: Maybe we can build a fire, sing a couple of songs, heh? Why don't we try that?
