What line spoken in a film either inspired you, dumbfounded you or had you laughing your butt off. A memorable line for me was from "Gone With the Wind" spoken by Scarlett O'Hara: "If I have to lie, cheat, steal or kill... as God is my witness I'll never be hungry again!".

The lines in the finale of "DUEL IN THE SUN",uttered by Jennifer Jones and Gregory Peck were not meant to sound corny,nor the dialogue by Elvis Presley in his death scene in "LOVE ME TENDER",but forgive me for saying this,I though it bordered on camp.Just my opinion. A memorable line for me is from "Casablanca" is between Raines and Bogart in the finale "about the beginning of a beautiful friendship".

I love this topic! Scarlett's utterance is a classic! I also adore Bette Davis in "All About Eve" when she squares off with the battle cry "Fasten your seat belts,its going to be a bumpy night." Spencer Tracy's assessment of Katherine Hepburn in "Pat and Mike - "there ain't much meat on her - but what there is is churz (choice)" . In "Cool Hand Luke" when Strother Martin oozes out with - "What we have here is failure to communicate."

Mongo, you read my mind! Remember when we used to have this particular topic? It was very popular. I have so many lines you'll probably get tired of me posting them. Here goes just a few: From THE WOMEN: Crystal Allen: "There's a name for you women, but it's not used outside of kennels." From SOYLENT GREEN: "It's people!!" From RED HEADED WOMAN: Lil (to a salesgirl): Can you see through this dress? Salesgirl: I'm afraid you can, Miss. Lil: Well, I'll wear it. From GWTW: Scarlett: You sir, are no gentleman! Rhett: And you miss, are no lady! Mammy (when Scarlett tells her she's going to ask Ashley Wilkes for tax money for Tara): "Askin' ain't gettin'." From CADDYSHACK: Judge Smails' Grandson: "I want a hamburger. I want a cheeseburger. I want a coke. I want..." Judge Smails: "You'll get nothing and like it!" Carl Spackler: "License to kill gophers, by the government of the United Nations." Okay...I'll post more later. This is fun!!

Two lines from the immortal Groucho Marx in the immortal movie "Duck Soup" (1933) spring to mind: To Margaret Dumont: "Married... I can see us now, me coming home to find you bent over a hot stove. Only I can't see the stove." About Margaret Dumont: "Remember, you're fighting for this woman's honor, which is probably more than she ever did!"

You guy's are coming up with some terrific lines from those great classic movies. It's fun to read some of the more hilarious lines which reminds me of one from "All About Eve". In Margo's dressing room when Eve finishes her sad tale of woe, Birdie (Thelma Ritter) says "what a story... everything but the bloodhounds snappin' at her rear end".

From BEYOND THE FOREST, another Bette Davis classic: in one scene, she casually shoots a poor little porcupine. Why: "I hate porkies!" Later, she tells her gutless doctor/husband that "the only person who does anybody a favor in this town is the undertaker. He carries them out."

"Never Give a Sucker an Even Break" W.C. Fields is in a restaurant that is seemingly out of everything he requests. Finally he settles for boiled eggs and mutters, "I don't know why I come in here - the flies get the best of everything." Later he remarks to the waitress "I didn't say anything about the steak. I merely observed that old horse usually tethered out front is missing."

Also from "Gone with the Wind": Mammy and Scarlett are standing outside the jail where Rhett is locked up and out prances Belle Watling. Mammy says "Who dat?". "I never saw dat color hair on a woman in all my life". Dear sweet Hattie McDaniel

One of my favorite quotes from one of my all-time favorite movies is: "Here's looking at you kid." From Casablanca

Lauren Becall in "To Have and Have Not": "You remember how to whistle don't you? Just put your lips together, and blow."

Theres a neat line in the film "Home From the Hill" that gets me everytime I see it. George Hamilton and Luana Patten are on a picnic and Hamilton says "Libby, I'm dying to kiss you" and she says "Don't die".

Bride of Frankenstein. Early scene. A man named Hans has fallen into a pit where the monster kills him. Unaware of his death, the man's wife puts her hand down into the pit and says: "Here, Hans, give me your hand, Hans!" I just wonder how many takes it took to get all those--"Hans...Hands..." down pat. I can hear Director James Whale laughing hysterically.
