Favorite Line from Movie

 A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl.

"If you don't commit suicide, you will be poor."

"Poor?"

"Poor in the only real sense of the word, sir, in that you would not be rich.  You will have a little after you've sold everything, but in a country where every man is what he is, he who has very little is nobody very much.  There's no such thing as genteel poverty here, sir."

 

...George Rose and Walter Matthou in A New Leaf (1971)  Scripted by Elaine May

This one small fact.  You are going to die.  Despite every effort, no one lives forever.

Sorry to be such a spoiler. 

My advice is, when the time comes, don't panic. It doesn't seem to help.

 Boys, you must strive to find your own voice. Because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all. Thoreau said, "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation." Don't be resigned to that. Break out!

"You must think I'm a reeeal...dangerous...man."

 

John Wayne to Richard Boone in Big Jake.  I could rattle off 7 or 8 more from that movie that are among my all-time favorites.

I just saw the ending of this film last night;  I love that last exchange between Wayne and Boone:

 

Before he dies, Fain asks, "Who are you?" When Jake answers, "Jacob McCandles," Fain says, "I thought you was dead," as have other characters during the course of the film. “Not hardly," Jake replies.

from 'the asphalt jungle':

marc lawrence: 'money always makes me sweat'.

marilyn monroe: 'big banana head'.

probably my favorite movie.

everyone in the cast was brilliant; no exceptions.

barry kelley and brad dexter are two of the standouts.
