I’m a newbie,, and never posted in this Forum, but like others got sucked in by the thread title..

What a kick reading all of this.. so many memories! But I didn’t see my favorites (unless I missed ’em)..

“What we have here, is a failure to communicate” – Cool Hand Luke

“You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and.. . blow” – To Have And Have Not

These go back a few decades, I might be the oldest fart here… and as somebody mentioned above, these are classic ‘delivery’ lines – no body could deliver that second line like Bacall

Thanks for starting this, Ramble…

Hey, thanks for saying so! I’m thrilled that so many have posted because I’ve discovered some new great lines. Which for me is a big deal (I’ve seen WAY too many movies multiple times).

And yes, I totally agree with you. Only Bacall could hit you in the toes like that with her eyes when she delivers that line. But then to see Bogey’s reaction… Fantastic stuff!
