"Sir, I’m a lawyer by trade. I'd like to think I’m a good one. When a lawyer takes on a client, he believes in his case. That’s all that matters. When I came over here, I took on my biggest client, the 918th. I want my client to win its case. Does that answer you question?"

One might, in here anyway, make the mistake of thinking a "great one-liner" from a movie is that line that's pivotal or memorable in the course of a film.  NOT just any line uttered of inconsequential value(or little, in most cases lately) that can be culled in a YouTube clip.  Like Jakeem's down there.  NOT really all that memorable, or plot advancing or witty or clever.  Just another line of thousands from a not so impressive film.

 

Certainly lacking the impact of Lauren Bacall telling Bogey in To Have Or Have Not how the kissing is "even BETTER when you HELP."

 

If this is decaying into a glut of posters showing off their YouTube posting skills, then I guess this thread is technically dead.
