    I think almost every experience in life has a quote from some film which describes real life. Yes, I love film. The good, the bad, and the ugly (except for The Good the Bad and the Ugly; too many close-ups of sweaty guys)

    What are yours ?

    I adore many of the lines from the pithy Hollywood scripts of the 1930s and 40s. Humphrey Bogart had his fair share of these:

    Ugarte: "You despise me don't you Rick"

    Rick: "Well, if I gave you any thought I probably would."

    Otto: I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part!
    Bluto: We're just the guys to do it.

    There we go, fellas. Humor isn't un- or anti-intellectual. I sits very near intellect, as shown above. Thanks, keep 'em coming. I have about a thousand quotes in mind.

    Also, these don't have to be funny. Insightful, profound, ironic, any of these is welcome.
    Grapes of Wrath (great novel, great film): "...wherever children are laughing 'cause they know it's suppertime, I'll be there. Wherever some cop's beatin'-up some guy, I'll be there, too." I loved Henry Fonda and his body of work.

    Paul Edgecomb: "Your name is John Coffey?"
    John Coffey: "Yessir, Boss. Like the drink, only not spelled the same."

    from The Green Mile (1999).

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    People often spell my name wrong.
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    "Alright then; I'll go to hell". Huckleberry Finn, trying to decide whether to rat-out the runaway slave he's traveling the Missouri River with. A defining decision in a young boy struggling with ethical/social decision. He made the right one. Few illuminated the Human Condition as well as Twain. Dickens, perhaps.

    Doc Ostrow: Morbius was too close to the problem. The Krell had completed their project. Big machine. No instrumentalities. True creation.
    Commander John J. Adams: Come on, Doc, let's have it.
    Doc Ostrow: But the Krell forgot one thing.
    Commander John J. Adams: Yes, what?
    Doc Ostrow: Monsters, John. Monsters from the Id.
    Commander John J. Adams: The Id? What's that? Talk, Doc!
    [Doc slumps and dies]
    Commander John J. Adams: Doc?
    Commander John J. Adams: [sadly] Oh, Doc. Doc.

    "Round-up the usual suspects".
    Also from "Casablanca", which had about a hundred memorable lines. Maybe more.

    Yes, one of my favorite. That film (and I even read the novel, whew, about 900 pages as I recall) has so many great lines. here's one: Rhett, "I've always had a penchant for lost causes, once they're truly lost." Excusing the privateer's guilt for not enlisting in "the Cause". Then, he goes off and does just that. Just great.

    Scarlet O'hara has some good lines, too. "That's all of Tara you'll ever get", as she throws a handful of Tara soil at Slattery.

    Arthur: All my life I've had this strange feeling that there's something big and sinister going on in the world.
    Slartibartfast: No, that's perfectly normal paranoia. Everyone in the universe gets that.

As a token of our appreciation, we hope you will enjoy the two thermonuclear missiles we've just sent to converge with your craft. To ensure ongoing quality of service, your death may be monitored for training purposes. Thank you



    Arthur: Let's go somewhere.
    Trillian: Definitely. Where'd you have in mind?
    Ford: I know this great restaurant at the end of the universe.


    Humma Kavula: Even an improbability drive needs coordinates which I happen to have.




    Ford: You're looking for the Ultimate Question.
    Zaphod: Yep.
    Ford: You.
    Zaphod: Me.
    Ford: Why?
    Zaphod: No, I tried that: Why? 42. Doesn't work.

    From National Velvet:



    Mrs. Brown: That'll be a dispute to the end of time, Mr. Brown: whether it's better to do the right thing for the wrong reason or the wrong thing for the right reason.

    Mi Taylor: Some day you'll learn that greatness is only the seizing of opportunity - clutching with your bare hands 'til the knuckles show white.
    Mr. Herbert Brown: It's one thing to out-think a man, quite another to outsmart him.

    Mrs. Brown: And who will say which is which?

    Commentary: No one would have believed in the middle of the 20th Century that human affairs were being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than Man's. Yet, across the gulf of space on the planet Mars, intellects vast and cool and unsypathetic regarded our Earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely joined their plans against us. Mars is more than 140 million miles from the sun, and for centuries has been in the last status of exhaustion. At night, temperatures drop far below zero even at its equator. Inhabitants of this dying planet looked across space with instruments and intelligences that which we have scarcely dreamed, searching for another world to which they could migrate.


    Major General Mann: [handing binoculars to Dr. Forrester] Look at it will you!
    Pastor Dr. Matthew Collins: Beings from another world.
    Major General Mann: Is that some kind of a flying machine?
    Forrester: No, no. It's supported from the ground by rays, probably some form of magnetic flux, like invisible legs. This is amazing. They must keep the opposing poles in balance and lift the machine.
    Col. Ralph Heffner: All command posts - stand by to fire!
    Pastor Dr. Matthew Collins: But, Colonel! Shooting's no good!
    Col. Ralph Heffner: It's always been a good persuader.

    not a movie, but an old tv series..."the many loves of dobie gillis"
    dobie and his best friend Maynard G krebbs are camping in the tropics and maynard is running around the inside of the tent, banging on the canvas and shouting
    "Go away polar bears!"
    Dobie says: "But maynard, there are no polar bears in the tropics."
    and Maynard responds: "See, it works doesn't it."

    "Wizard of Oz -a classic---"Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain". This is a metaphor for life. We never know how much we're being deceived. Not by Wizards, by
    less-comical types. We are no longer citizens as much as consumers, manipulated and assaulted by Madison Avenue into believing we need every product sold. And we obey.

    From The Empire Strikes Back--

    Han: "I know."

    From A Beautiful Mind--
    Dr. Rosen: Imagine if you suddenly learned that the people, the places, the moments most important to you were not gone, not dead, but worse, had never been. What kind of hell would that be?"

    Juror #8: It's always difficult to keep personal prejudice out of a thing like this. And wherever you run into it, prejudice always obscures the truth. I don't really know what the truth is. I don't suppose anybody will ever really know. Nine of us now seem to feel that the defendant is innocent, but we're just gambling on probabilities - we may be wrong. We may be trying to let a guilty man go free, I don't know. Nobody really can. But we have a reasonable doubt, and that's something that's very valuable in our system. No jury can declare a man guilty unless it's sure.

    Juror # 8 was Henry Fonda. That was an Interesting film; 12 men; not all were "angry". Fonda showed the power of reason, the meaning of doubt. One of my favorite films.

    Thanks LuciDreaming; "To Kill a Mockingbird" was a great book and a great film. Maybe the best of each. Never do I miss it's showing. One of the best moments, though not a 'quote': When confronted outside the home of the family of the convicted man, having just informed them of his death while 'escaping' Justice, Finch encounters one of the local racists and is spat in the face by the racist. Finch takes half a step toward this bigot, pauses while staring directly at him, then reaches into his back pocket (to extract 'something ?') and pulls out his handkerchief, wipes his face very purposefully, steps around the guy, and gets into his car. One of the best moments of all film history.

    John Galt: The goal of the "liberals" as it emerges from the record of the past decades was to smuggle this country into welfare statism by means of single, concrete, specific measures, enlarging the power of the government a step at a time, never permitting these steps to be summed up into principles, never permitting their direction to be identified or the basic issue to be named.


    Ellis Wyatt: Who the hell are you?
    John Galt: My name is John Galt. I live in a place we call Atlantis, and I think you'd fit in there. It's a place where heroes live; where those who *want* to be heroes live. The government we have there respects each of us as individuals and as producers. Actually, beyond a few courthouses there isn't much government at all. Bottom line, Mr Wyatt; if you're weary of a government that refuses to limit its power over you, if you're ready at this moment to claim the moral right to your own life, then we should leave, and I'll take you there. I'll take you to Atlantis.

    Sounds like the nights when more than 2000 labels (price changes) come down and my regular label assistant is unavailable. It is physically impossible but we roll up our sleeves and do 'damage control' with the objective being to get all (or as many as possible) of the price up changes done first, for those are the ones that we will get a 'Code 33' on, as we follow the Scanner Price Accuracy Voluntary Code of Canada.

    1. THE ITEM FREE SCANNER POLICY
    Retailers will implement an Item Free Scanner Policy as follows:
    1.1 On a claim being presented by the customer, where the scanned price of a product at checkout is higher than the price displayed in the store or than advertised by the store, the lower price will be honoured; and

    (a) if the correct price of the product is $10 or less, the retailer will give the product to the customer free of charge; or
    (b) if the correct price of the product is higher than $10, the retailer will give the customer a discount of $10 off the corrected price.
    Scanner Accuracy | Retail Council of Canada

    Oh, wait. This is a 'great lines' thread and I'm not famous (yet).

    Here's a 'classic' for you.

    Charlie Allnut: How'd you like it?
    Rose Sayer: Like it?
    Charlie Allnut: White water rapids!
    Rose Sayer: I never dreamed...
    Charlie Allnut: I don't blame you for being scared - not one bit. Nobody with good sense ain't scared of white water...
    Rose Sayer: I never dreamed that any mere physical experience could be so stimulating!

    I'm still a kid. I hope to remain one, forever. Peter Pan, Alice, and Pinocchio, are my friends, still. So are Albert, Galileo, and Epicurus. The kids get to sit at the big table, at my house.
