Favorite Line From a Movie


Recommended Posts

I can’t find Bio-47’s 2008 once very popular thread “My Favorite Line From A Movie” or the one reactivated by Swithin in 2014, so I am posting this here:

 

75 years ago thousands of mostly young kids stormed the beaches of Normandy giving up their lives so that we could enjoy the freedom we have today. Let us never forget!

 

General Dwight D. Eisenhower's D-Day Speech (featured in "The Longest Day"):

 

“You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

 

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.

 

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

 

I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

 

Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”

FDR: D-day

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity. 

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

Bio-47’s 2008 once very popular thread “My Favorite Line From A Movie”:

June 6. 2020

As I remind the Community every year, please remember that 76 years ago thousands of mostly young kids stormed the beaches of Normandy giving up their lives so that we could enjoy the freedom we have today. Let us never forget!

General Dwight D. Eisenhower's D-Day Speech (referenced in "The Longest Day"):

“You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

"Here's looking at YOU, Kid" -from Casablanca.  Also, "I've got vision and the rest of the world wears bifocals" - from Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.

"I wonder who the real cannibals are?" - this line gets lots of criticism but I thought it was a great way to end the film.

Not sure of exact line:  We had faces then from Sunset Boulevard

Paul Newman's Response to Robert Redford in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when they are on the cliff:  After Redford tells him he can't swim, Newman says something like, "Swim, the fall will kill you."

Rosebud.

Plastics (from the Graduate)

ET Phone Home

What we have here is a failure to communicate.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning.

The stuff that dreams are made of (added to the Maltese Falcon - not in novel)

Lauren Bacall saying to Bogey, "you know how to whistle Steve, just put your lips together and blow."

Another great line is during my favorite scene from THE UNTOUCHABLES. Ness (Costner)  and Stone (Garcia) are at the train station to apprehend Capone's bookkeeper. A lot of action is taking place when Stone grabs the runaway baby carriage while aiming his pistol at the thug holding the bookkeeper. Ness -  "you got him?" Stone - "yea, I got him". Ness - "take him!".

Love To Each His Own, great film and love Olivia in it. Next to the Heiress, it's my favorite Olivia film.

Two quotes from a 1942 truly classic film:

"What was it he said? If I were to meet a fighter, I was to... I'd love to go with you, Mr. Murdock."

"So long, Champ."

Jack Nicholson saying "Here's Johnny" in The Shining.  Also like what he keeps typing All Work and No Play Make Jack a Dull Boy (or whatever the exact line is).

The line about holding the chicken salad between her legs in Five Easy Pieces is extremely relatable.

Also, because I can personally relate to it, when Shirley M. is at the hospital and she screams at the nurses to give her daughter the drugs.

From the great unforgettable 1942 tear jerker:

 

"You might even have met her, Charles. Met her and not known her. It might be someone you know, Charles. It might... it might even be me."
