Favourite Quotes from Movies


Recommended Posts

If there's already a thread for this, someone redirect me. But otherwise, post your favourite quotes/exchanges from movies here. Here are a few of mine:

When God made you a fool, He gave you a fool's face. - Lawrence of Arabia

No ... I am your father. - The Empire Strikes Back

Why are you wearing that stupid man suit? - Donnie Darko

Mend thy face, and I shall mend my ways. - Henry V

I'm Batman. - Batman Begins

Stop, Dave. - 2001: A Space Odyssey

Plus pretty much Edna says in The Incredibles. :D

My name is Darth Vader. I come from the planet Vulcan.

- Back to the Future

To me, truth is not some vague, foggy notion. Truth is real. And at the same time, unreal. Fiction and fact and everything in between, plus some other things I can't remember; all rolled into one big "thing." This is truth, to me.

Many of my favorite movie quotes can't really be repeated on a family-friendly forum such as this one. "...I'm a mushroom cloud-layin'..." and so on.

Do quotes from MST3K-ified versions of movies count?

"I feel a nostalgia for an age yet to come..."
Opus, Twitter, Facebook

Er, that's not exactly a FAVOURITE quotes thread, is it? It's the TOP quotes thread, where you VOTED for the Top Movie quote. This is a thread for FAVOURITE quotes, many of which were not included as options in that poll. I noted a lot of people protesting in the Top Quotes Poll that this quote or that quote wasn't included in the poll. Well, now you can post 'em all in this thread.

And, BTW, Peter's probably just sick of "aheming" me by now ... :D

Many aren't exactly from *five star* films, either...

Ah, so what? Post 'em anyway.

Excuse my ignorance; I have no idea what that means. ::blush:: But sure. Go ahead. Unless everyone acknowledges that as a valid "ahem", in which case I'll back out.

And, just in case ... :spoilers:

Though I can't really see how any of those quotes were spoilers (I didn't say WHO said "I am your father", did I?) :)

My name is Darth Vader. I come from the planet Vulcan.

Never! I just happened to spend my morning writing a film review in which I "ahemed" a filmmaker multiple times for recycling several of his earlier films, is all, and I didn't even check A&F until mid-afternoon.

Ha. OK. For the record, you've only actually "ahemed" me once. :D I use that smiley a lot, have you noticed?

And since this thread is still valid, I also love this one from Star Wars:

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Has anyone else made up stupid variations on that? Like, "I find your lack of brains disturbing."

And :spoilers: :

Asps. Very dangerous. You go first. - Raiders of the Lost Ark

My name is Darth Vader. I come from the planet Vulcan.

There was a famous list of Star Wars quotes a while back that replaced one word in each quote with the word "pants". So, "I find your lack of pants disturbing." Loved it.

Use the pants.

No ... I am your pants.

Stretch out with your pants.

It is quite safe from your pitiful little pants.

I've got a bad pants about this.

Ha ha. That last one doesn't quite work, though.

And since it seems like the Top Quotes thread has replaced this one, I'll be moving my comments over there.

Can we do other movies too?

Boy: Do not try and fold the pants. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Boy: There are no pants.

Neo: There are no pants?

Boy: Then you'll see, that it is not the pants that fold, it is only yourself.

Ha ha, we're gonna have to rename the thread soon.

Emperor: You have paid the price for your lack of pants.

WARNING: Anyone who makes up a "pants" variation using one of Jar Jar's lines will be disemboweled. :D

Since 1995 we have authored a commentary on film, cinema in focus. Though we enjoy cinema as an art form, our interests lie not so much in reviewing a film as in beginning a conversation about the social and spiritual values presented. We, therefore, often rate a film higher or lower due to its message rather than its quality of acting or film-making.

THANK YOU for getting the thread back on track. We were starting to go nuts there.

*chomp* - Jaws :)

Any more of those pants SW quotes? How 'bout from the prequel trilogy:

ANAKIN: They're like pants! And I slaughtered them, like pants!

Or ...

ANAKIN: You are in my very pants, tormenting me.

My name is Darth Vader. I come from the planet Vulcan.
