movie quotes

California Mafia has a list. The Corner's been teeing them off. Thought I'd add a few of my own (quotes may not be 100% accurate, but I don't feel like double checking, so there). Right now I'm going to stick to an arbitrary 3 quotes per movie rule in the instances where I double or triple dip, we'll see if I can restrain myself.

"May those who love us, love us. And those who don't love us, may God turn their hearts, and if he does not turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles, that we may know them by their limping." - Keeping the Faith (actually, not a bad line for certain current unfortunate political realites)

"What's 'taters', Precious?" - Gollum, in one of the Lord of the Rings movies (TTT or RotK), and strangely enough not only my favorite quote from the trilogy, but one of my most quoted in the past couple years (and then my brother always follows with Sam's "Po-ta-toes")

From The Big Lebowski:

"Are these men Nazis?"
"No Donnie, these men are Nihilists. There's nothing to be afraid of."

"Nihilists? F*** me. Say what you will about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, but at least it's an ethos!"

"Donnie, you are out of your element!"

"What we do in life echoes in eternity!" - Russell Crowe in Gladiator

From Mystery Men:

"Maybe you should put some shorts on, if you want to keep fighting evil today."

"God gave me a gift: I shovel well. I shovel very well."

"Maybe that's because Lance Hunt is Captain Amazing."
"Don't start this again. Lance Hunt wears glasses. Captain Amazing doesn't wear glasses."
"He takes them off when he transforms."
"That doesn't make any sense! He wouldn't be able to see!"

From The Princess Bride:

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

"As you wish."

"I do not envy you the headache you will have when you awake, but until then, sleep well, and dream of large women." (my only funny quote from this one, as the others (including my favorite, the "classic blunders" one) are posted elsewhere)

"You do too much. You're not Superman, you know." - Aunt May in Spider-Man

From various Star Wars movies:

"Why do I have a feeling you're going to get me killed one of these days?" (Obi Wan Kenobi to Anakin Skywalker in AotC)

From O Brother, Where Art Thou?:

"He's a suitor!"

"We thought you was a toad!"

"Make way, I take large steps!" - Miles Gloriosus in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

More later.

Like many people, I love movies! Last year I got hooked on downloading movies over the internet and it was the best thing in my life! Now I'm downloading movies and burning my own Videos CDs for free!
