Every day I hoped to love you a little less and every night my breaking heart would love you more.

 

- from an old romantic movie whose title I can't recall.

From IMDB:

 

Newspaper reporter: [speaking of Col. Thursday] But what of the men who died with him? What of Collingworth and...

Captain Yorke: Collingwood.

Newspaper reporter: Oh, of course, Collingwood.

Reporter: That's the ironic part of it. We always remember the Thursdays, but the others are forgotten.

Captain Yorke: You're wrong there. They aren't forgotten because they haven't died. They're living - right out there.

[points out the window]

Captain Yorke: Collingwood and the rest. And they'll keep on living as long as the regiment lives. The pay is thirteen dollars a month; their diet: beans and hay. Maybe horsemeat before this campaign is over. Fight over cards or rotgut whiskey, but share the last drop in their canteens. The faces may change... the names... but they're there: they're the regiment... the regular army... now and fifty years from now. They're better men than they used to be. Thursday did that. He made it a command to be proud of.

Can somebody please download the words to the final scene from Fort Apache where John Wayne as Captain York gives the press that monologue about the "Regular Army" and how it will still be the same "50 years from now" which is now 150?  I just heard it on Encore but it went too fast for me to write down.  It's perfect for today.  HAPPY VETERANS DAY to all it applies to; our family counts twelve.

I have SO MANY!!!
Joan Crawford in The Women,
"Theres a name for ladies like you, only in high society it isn't used outside of a Kennel."

For some reason, the guy in Scream, after being stabbed saying, "I'm feeling a little woozy" keeps coming to me!

Clark Gable in It Happened One Night...on the bus arguing with the bys driver. ...They go back and forth with Clark taking smack, the bus driver always saying, Oh Yeah, a b d Clark says, YOU GOT ME...YEAH!!!
I LOVED THAT!!! lol

Wow so many good ones though!!!!

Hard to pick a "favorite" amongst so many great ones, but one I always liked, and long has amused me was in THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE

 

It was during the scene in which John Wayne's Tom Donofan steers Jimmy Stewart's Ransom Stoddard, off to "practice" with Mr. Peabody's gun, towards his ranch.  Wayne has Stewart put paint cans on top of fence posts, and then shoots them off, covering Stewart with paint after shooting the 3rd can. and Wayne says something about not liking tricks.  Stewart walks up to Wayne and floors him with a right hook, saying, "I don't like tricks either.  So I guess that maysks us even!"

 

The way Stewart oddly pronounces what was intended to be the word "makes" always kind of tickled me.

THE THIRD MAN:

 

 

CALLOWAY: I told you to go away, Martins. This isn't Santa Fe...I'm not a Sheriff, and you aren't a cowboy. You have been blundering around with the worst bunoh of racketeers in Vienna...your precious Harry's friends, and now you're wanted for murder.

 

MARTINS: Put in drunk and disorderly, too.

 

CALLOWAY: I have.

 

What's the matter with your hand?

 

MARTINS: A parrot bit me.

 

CALLOWAY: Oh, stop behaving like a fool, Martins.

 

MARTINS: I'm only a little fool - I'm an amateur at it - you're a professional. You've been shaking your cap and bells all over town.

 

CALLOWAY: Paine, get me the Harry Lime file and Mr. Martins a large whiskey.

 

MARTINS: I don't need your drinks, Calloway.

 

CALLOWAY: You will.

 

I don't want another murder in this case, and you were born to be murdered. So you're going to hear the facts.


Say buddy, will you stake a fellow American to a meal?
