    I gotta nominate this one, from Gorky Park:

    Irina Asanova: KGB have better cars, you know.
    Arkady Renko: Ah, but they don't always take you where you want to go, do they?

    You've just redeemed yourself in my eyes. Any fan of Martin Cruz Smith is a friend of mine. I'd recommend you read the novel, though. Far more one-liners there.

    In keeping with the spirit of the thread:

    Eli Cross: Did you not know that King Kong the First was only three feet, six inches high? He barely came up to Fay Wray's belly button. If God could do the tricks we do, he'd be a happy man!

    Tyler: Advertising has us working jobs we hate, to buy shit we don't need.

    Peter: Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about mission statements.


    I'll leave it to the reader to decide why those two stick with me. :brood:

    John Milton: Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He's a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, his own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It's the goof of all time. Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow. Ahaha. And while you're jumpin' from one foot to the next, what is he doing? He's laughin' His sick, fuckin' ass off! He's a tight-ass! He's a SADIST! He's an absentee landlord! Worship that? NEVER!

    And this one you pretty much have to watch to get the impact but:

    "Forth! Down fear of darkness! Arise! Arise, Riders of Theoden! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword day... a red day... and the sun rises! Ride now... Ride now... Ride! Ride for ruin and the world's ending! Death! DEATH! DEEEATH!

    Depending on the meanings of the words "great" and "lines" . . .

    Sadly, while the lines were great of length, the movie did end up sucking.

    "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?"

    "Look down there. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare? Free of income tax, old man. Free of income tax - the only way you can save money nowadays."

    "You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition's given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Starling? And that accent you've tried so desperately to shed: pure West Virginia. What is your father, dear? Is he a coal miner? Does he stink of the lamp? You know how quickly the boys found you... all those tedious sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars... while you could only dream of getting out... getting anywhere... getting all the way to the FBI."

    "I've often speculated why you don't return to America. Did you abscond with the church funds? Run off with a senator's wife? I like to think you killed a man. It's the Romantic in me."

    "I mean, if I had my way... you'd wear that goddamn uniform for the rest of your pecker-suckin' life. But I'm aware that ain't practical, I mean at some point you're gonna hafta take it off. So. I'm 'onna give you a little somethin' you can't take off."

    "Dyin' ain't much of a living, boy."

    "Yeah, I was in the show. I was in the show for 21 days once - the 21 greatest days of my life. You know, you never handle your luggage in the show, somebody else carries your bags. It was great. You hit white balls for batting practice, the ballparks are like cathedrals, the hotels all have room service, and the women all have long legs and brains."

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

    Some of the quotes are classic, yet many others are unfamiliar, I've no idea what movie is being quoted or why.
