From "Merrily We Live". "These are my dogs, this is 'Get Off The Rug', this is 'You Too' "

This is one of my favorite comedy lines. :)

Bruce: He's got a lot of charm.

Hildy: He comes by it naturally. His grandfather was a snake.

(His Girl Friday; 1940)

 

Girl: What are you dressed as?

Wednesday: I'm a homicidal maniac. They look just like everyone else.

(Addams Family; 1991)

 

Velma: I know you. All you care about are swimsuit models.

Fred: Look, I'm a man of substance. Dorky chicks like you turn me on, too.

(Scooby Doo; 2002)

Amber:  Of course I do, Charles, and I love you....

 

King Charles:  But you don't and you never have. 

I don't blame you for loving him, but I cannot forgive you for it.

If I hadn't been king, I might have managed some time in my life to fall in love myself.  But instead I've had to create an illusion of happiness.  I've had to pretend to love-- pretend to be loved, At best, it was a fragile device, too easily shattered, as you've shattered it tonight. 

 

Linda Darnell and George Sanders in Forever Amber (1947)

I always laugh out loud when Jack Warden comments about James Mason to Paul Newman in "The Verdict":

 

Mickey Morrissey: He's a good man? Heh, heh, he's the Prince of #&@$ Darkness! He'll have people testifying they saw her waterskiing in Marblehead last summer.

And for more adult tastes:

Most of Matt Dillon's lines in "There's Something About Mary"

and Woody Harrelson's landlady (Lin Shaye also Magda in above) in "Kingpin" about jarring something loose.

"Guns of Navarone" = the "bloody - bloody - bloody" speech by Richard Harris towards the beginning.

 

"Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai" = Most of Dr Emilio/John Whorfin's lines like:

"Laugh-a while you can, Monkey Boy!!" and "Home... home is where you wear your hat... I feel so breakup, I wanna go home."

Some of my favourite lines from THE GUNS OR NAVARONE:

 

 

"Somebody's *got* to take responsibility if the job's going to get done, do you think that's easy?"

- Captain Mallory in THE GUNS OF NAVARONE to Corporal Miller

 

 

"I've inspected this vessel, and I think you ought to know that, ah, I can't swim.'

 

"I'll keep it in mind".

- Miller to Mallory who then answers.


Peter Fonda and Gregory Peck are my heroes.

Cold are the hands of time that creep along relentlessly, destroying slowly but without pity that which yesterday was young. Alone our memories resist this disintegration and grow more lovely with the passing years. Heh! That's hard to say with false teeth!

When the weak are also cruel, we should beware of them, my friend. The weak know how to use their power. They have soft, white hands with which to squeeze and squeeze.

If love is right, it is the most precious gift in the world. But you must be sure, very sure, that it is right. For if it isn't, there is no worse agony, nothing more bitter, nothing more lonely to be imagined.

(Little Shirley Temple grows up into supporting roles)

 

Barbara Marshall: [in tears] Mary, I... Mary, I... I'm so ashamed. Please forgive me. I love you, Mary, and I wouldn't want to hurt you, not for anything. I understand something... I understand something now that I never knew before, that you can make a mistake, do something dreadful, without meaning to... Oh, Mary!

 

I'll Be Seeing You (1944)

 

 

Bridget 'Brig' Hilton: [in tears] . . I pray the Lord my soul to take. And God bless Pop, and mother, and Jane. and Fidelia, and Uncle Tony, and Soda. And please God, make Pop safe. Oh, i know he is safe -- you wouldn't let anything happen to him. But Please, make him safe anyway. Amen.

Deborah Bishop: Why is it that sooner or later no matter what we talk about we wind up talking about Addie Ross?

Addie Ross: [off voice] Maybe it's because if you girls didn't talk about me you wouldn't talk at all.
