"You're the disease. I'm the cure." - Stallone in the movie "Cobra"

"Hasta la vista, Baby." - Schwarzenneger in "Terminator II"

Take it away, folks...

Maybe we could vote on which one is the best while we're at it.

Not a movie, but my favorite quote from the entire Firefly TV series:


    Jayne: Don't much see the benefit in getting involved in strangers' troubles without a up-front price negotiated.
    Book: These people need assistance. The benefit wouldn't necessarily be for you.
    Jayne: That's what I'm sayin'.
    Zoe: No one's gonna force you to go, Jayne. As has been stated, this job is strictly speculative.
    Jayne: Good! Don't know these folks, don't much care to.
    Mal: They're whores.
    Jayne: I'm in.


Of course, you need to know the characters...

No. It's "Hello, Doggie." And then there's also, "YOU'RE TEARING ME APART, LISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

But that was not an action movie. It's a melodrama.

It was made by Tommy Wiseau. The movie is "The Room". And it is, of course, a masterpiece. ;-)

The Bond movies [see above 1044] specialise in those throwaway puns when someone has been wasted. Another example, re a man who had been impaled, "I think he got the point".

Clint Eastwood has cornered the market on this stuff, if ya ask me.



"I know what you're thinkin'...'Did he fire 5 shots? Or 6?' Being that this is a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and can blow yer head clean off, you gotta ask yourself one thing: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well??? DO ya?...Punk?"

Perfect. Clint Eastwood makes my day. Only Philip Marlowe can equal Clint.

Yeah, only he didn't say "hands", Jack. He said "paws". Filthy paws!

"Getchyer filthy paws off me, you damned dirty ape!!!"

That made it doubly offensive, even though he was just talkin' to a Gorilla, not a Chimp... and that is why I let all the air out of his tires one time at a swanky party in Beverley Hills and then switched a glass of pee for his glass of apple juice. Far as I'm concerned, Heston was a loudmouth jerk with not a whole lotta actin' talent neither. Let's face it, the Red Sea is NEVER gonna part for a bozo like him.

Ya both left out one little important word that should be there: "a"

"What we have here is a failure to communicate."

But hey, I like the Woody Allen one where he's bein' bugged by the pontificatin' guy in the movie lineup behind him and says to Diane Keaton: "What I wouldn't give now for a large sack full of horse manure!"

And then...well, here's the scene:

Okay, here we go...best movie rant EVER...by Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder, playing madman egomaniacal Hollywood studio boss, Les Grossman. Grossman's spectacular rant starts around the 1:50 mark, but the rest of the video is hilarious too.

Les Grossman goes postal!

Gotta hand it to Tom Cruise. He did a simply amazing job in this movie, portraying a character radically different in both behaviour and appearance from the characters we usually see him playing. And isn't "Les Grossman" simply the ultimate name for a maniacal tinsel town studio owner?

By a train of thought, Capt Renault's instruction to his police officers, "Round up the usual suspects" occurred in that film. The cliché 'the usual suspects', not just for people but for such things as fashion garments, menu items, &c, & as the referential title of a film about identifications, suddenly became current about 50 years after the film's release ~~ a phenomenon I never understood. I asked Nigel Rees, editor of The Quote-Unquote Newsletter, if he could explain this strange phenomenon; but he confessed himself somewhat puzzled likewise, & could only come up with what he admitted was a somewhat ½❤ed explanation.

At risk of drift ~~ anyone any ideas about this?

Back in Win95 days, Microsoft came out with a "sounds" package containing a bunch of "quotes" you could attach to Windows functions, so that instead of just "beeps" when something happened you got a wise saying.

A favorite in one office was from Jumpin' Jack Flash,:

"DON'T KNOCK MASTURBATION. IT'S SEX WITH SOMEONE I LOVE!"

Another highly rated one (source citation unnecessary): "He's Dead, Jim," along with the parody(?) "you get his tricorder, I'll take his wallet."

[Thread drift] - Another source is in "headlines," especially on the web. Today at MSNBC we have "Voices in head more common than thought," which I read as "even people who seldom have a thought have their voices that tell them what to do" - like those who start some of our threads here.

Mother Superior to Maria- "What is it Maria? What is it you Cunt Face."

Yul Brynner & Steve McQueen, recruiting their original Magnificent Seven, are directed to Charles Bronson [I think it was] grimly chopping his way thru a huge pile of logs.

Brynner: "I heard you might be looking for work."

Bronson: "Nah. I'm just doing this because I'm an eccentric millionaire."
