Everybody knows send-off lines from GONE WITH THE WIND, THE WIZARD OF OZ and CASABLANCA..but there's gotta be a bunch of other memorable lines from classic movies. Anybody know some good ones?

How about this from the 1932 I AM A FUGATIVE FROM A CHAIN GANG: When the Paul Muni character is asked at the end of this movie how he survives day to day, he replies, "I steal..." and backs out of the camera range into black.

Hey, you can't leave out KING KONG, where Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) forces his way through the crowd after Kong falls to his death from the Empire State Building. A policeman comes up to him and says, "Well, Mr. Denham, the airplanes got him!" and Denham replies, "Oh no -- the airplanes didn't get him. It was Beauty that killed the Beast."

How about John Hurt as the Elephant Man: "I am not a monster . . . I am a human being" Great film, but make sure you have a box of tissues close at hand before watching

Daria M., Great choice.This is not only a great film from an acting standpoint[John Hurt&Anthony Hopkins];it also features beautiful black and white photography by Freddie Francis. You are also right about the tissues!! kw

yes, i certainly was thrilled to see a "modern" movie in black an white . . . something about color photography always seemed a little unreal to me; to me, the color has to be JUST RIGHT, or everything just seems cartoonish or like a bad trip. :-p

Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond wrote both of my favorite send-off lines. The above-mentioned "Nobody's Perfect" in "Some Like It Hot" and "Shut Up and Deal" in "The Apartment"

Arnold Schwarzenegger to Sharon Stone before shooting her in the head in "Total Recall": "Consider this a divorce!" That is a darkly funny line, IMO... Sincerely, John Kilduff

Nothing great about this last line of a film, but i thought it was a bit odd and pretty cool at the same time. Movie: The Two Mrs. Carrolls - Bogart is married to Stanwyck. Bogart slowly poisons his first wife by continuously slipping something nasty in her milk. He tries to do the same thing to Stanwyck but she finally catches on at the end. Bogart finds out that Barb is onto him so he tries to strangle her. The cops get their before he can finish. He doesn't put up a fight, he realizes it's over and the cops escort him down the stairs. When they get to the bottom, Bogart stops and politely asks "Could i interest you gentlemen in a drink....a glass of milk perhaps" The End

Eli Wallach in THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, said my favorite closing line of all time: "Hey Blond! You know what you are? Just a stinkin' son-of-a- . . . (MUSIC). Classic ending!
