    I’ve often wondered if a screenwriter knows if one of his or her lines is going to become famous when it’s first typed across the page. Imagine, you sit down one fine day and to your surprise one of your characters says:

    “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.” The Godfather

    “The force will be with you.” Star Wars

    “Say hello to my little friends!” Scarface

    “You’re gonna’ need a bigger boat.” Jaws

    “Some mornings you can just smell a sh***y day coming.” The Paper

    “They’re called boobs, Ed.” Erin Brockavich

    “Now that’s what I call a close encounter.” Independence Day

    I could go on forever. What do you think are the greatest movie lines ever?

    I’ve never been to this forum because I don’t write screen or stageplays, but the thread title intrigued me.

    There are several good ones in Gone With The Wind: “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

    One of my all-time favorites: Forrest Gump – “My mama always said, ‘Life is like a box of chocolates; You never know what you’re gonna get.”

    My very favorite, (though I don’t believe it’s famous) – Jimmy Stewart as Edward P. Dowd in my favorite movie, Harvey: He walks into a business, usually a bar, and someone asks “What can I do for you?” His reply? “Well, what’d ya have in mind?”  I love that one!

    Eegads! You have some great taste in movies!

    I was not a huge fan of that Dracula when I first saw it, but reading that line almost makes me want to check it out again. What I wouldn’t give to write a line like that.

    Dude, I LOVE Bram Stoker’s Dracula. And to be honest, I think it’s mostly because Gary Oldman played the part. Some said he couldn’t pull it off. HA! Gary Oldman oozed sex appeal as Dracula…Bela Lagosi…pah! Give me Gary anytime!

    Well, I consider it quite a compliment that I induced you into the screenwriting side of the house. Muwahhh-haa-haaa!!

    Those are all HUGE lines. I mean, so much comes from the actor’s delivery, but still, that Gone With the Wind line is world famous. Makes me so envious sometimes…

    Yeah, the pretty woman lines and the movie in general was just something that touched me and I’ll never forget it. She had so much potential and had a rough life and got into selling her body in order to make rent and I can identify,…..hold on not with the selling my body or anything , but simply wanting to become so much more than what you are and she definately was someone who didn’t belong in that environment and am so glad she jumped into that car with sexy Richard Geer,…yum!!!

    Wow, Angel! Chills, everytime I even think of Signs. It’s one of those that I can watch a hundred times and still get all emotional when Carol says “Tell Morgan it’s O.K. to be silly…”

    “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.” That’s my man Humphrey Bogart from Casablanca. Same movie where Ilsa says, “Kiss me. Kiss me as if it were the last time.”

    Not to mention, my personal fav from Casablanca:

    “Of all the gin joints in all the town and all the world, she had to walk into mine.”

    Oh I know. I saw it in the theater, and I was nervous all the way home in the dark. They did a great job with Carol too. She didn’t have many lines, but they were powerful.

    Greatest lines in a movie ever? Easy as Sunday mornin’ babyluv. 😉

    From Pulp Fiction: other: “Where did you get this motorcycle?” Bruce Willis: “It’s not a motorcycle, baby. It’s a chopper.” other: “Who’s chopper is this?” Bruce: “Zed’s, now c’mon baby we gotta go!” other: “Where’s Zed?” Bruce: “Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.”

    From Four Rooms: Tim Roth: “I am NOT cuttin’ off Norman’s little PINKIE!”

    Also from Pulp Fiction: Samuel L. Jackson: after repeating the bible scripture to Tim Roth in the restaurant. “You heard that, it meant your ass. But you’ve caught me in a transitional period and I’m not going to kill you.”

    “So pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the f*&#$in’ car.” -The Wolf

    Hehe… absolutely. I’m a big, big, big Quinton Terrantino (sp?) fan. I like most of his movies (except for the kill bill ones… those were terrible with a capital “T”). More great lines from Pulp Fiction:

    “That’s pride, fu**in’ with ya. F**k pride!”– Marcellus Wallace

    “You’re gonna go home, je** off and that’s all you gotta do!”– Vincent in Mia and Marcellus Wallace’s bathroom

    “Ezekiel 25:17? The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name charity and good will shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the lord, when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”– Jules in the apartment just before he and Vincent blast away at Brett. (I watched it again the other night… best scene in the movie!!)

    “Oh man, I shot Marvin in the face!”– Vincent in the car.

    And how about From Dusk till Dawn? I can’t quote any lines from there because of vulgarity, but when Cheech Marin is outside describing the… lovely attributes of the ladies inside the brothel, I’ve never laughed harder.

    Wow — just found this thread. Some GREAT lines here! I enjoyed all of them.

    Being Monty Pyhton nut, I love the Holy Grail quotes — there are SO many fabulous ones in that movie. Geez, every scene has memorable lines:

    “Bring out your dead!”

    “None shall pass!”

    “She turned me into a newt!” “A newt???” “Well…I got better.”

    Just soooo many ones…

    Oh, and the coconuts!

    GUARD #1: Where’d you get the coconut?

    ARTHUR: We found them.

    GUARD #1: Found them? In Mercea? The coconut’s tropical!

    ARTHUR: What do you mean?

    GUARD #1: Well, this is a temperate zone.

    ARTHUR: The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plumber may seek warmer climes in winter yet these are not strangers to our land.

    GUARD #1: Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

    ARTHUR: Not at all, they could be carried.

    GUARD #1: What — a swallow carrying a coconut?

    ARTHUR: It could grip it by the husk!

    GUARD #1: It’s not a question of where he grips it! It’s a simple question of weight ratios! A five-ounce bird could not carry a one-pound coconut.

    Anyway, I also caught this about Casablanca:

    RambleDown – 2009-03-12 2:08 PM

    “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.” That’s my man Humphrey Bogart from Casablanca. Same movie where Ilsa says, “Kiss me. Kiss me as if it were the last time.”

    Not to mention, my personal fav from Casablanca: “Of all the gin joints in all the town and all the world, she had to walk into mine.”

    Great movie, but I think Claude Rains as Captain Renault had some of the best quotes in the film:

    Renault: “I’ve often speculated why you don’t return to America. Did you abscond with the church funds? Did you run off with a Senator’s wife? I like to think that you killed a man. It’s the romantic in me.”

    Rick: “It’s a combination of all three.”

    Renault: “I’m making out the report now. We haven’t decided whether he committed suicide or died trying to escape”

    And of course, the classic:

    Renault: “Major Strasser has been shot. (pause) Round up the usual suspects.”

    Ok, this is an awesome thread, and i had to put in my two cents

    “It was beauty killed the beast” classic line from King Kong

    “Even the smallest person can change the course of the future” LOTR Fellowship of the Ring (that was my yearbook quote my senior year)

    And of course, probably my favorite exchange from The Two Towers (Extended version)

    (Legolas walks up to Gimli)
    Legolas: Final count; forty-two

    Gimli: Forty-two? That’s not bad for a pointy eared Elvish Princeling. (*Chuckles*) I myself am sitting pretty on forty-three.

    Legolas: (*pulls out an arrow and shoots the ork between Gimli’s legs*) Forty-three.

    Gimli: He was already dead.

    Legolas: He was twitching.

    Gimli: He was twitching, ’cause he’s got my axe embedded in his nervous system!

    Two of the best movies ever made…

    The Princess Bride:

    I told you I would always come for you. Why didn’t you wait for me? -Westley
    Well… you were dead. -Buttercup

    You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles. -Miracle Max

    He didn’t fall? Inconceivable! -Vizzini
    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. -Inigo Montoya

    That’s a miracle pill? -Inigo Montoya
    The chocolate coating makes it go down easier. But you have to wait fifteen minutes for full potency. And you shouldn’t go in swimming after, for at least, what? -Valerie

    Have fun storming the castle! -Miracle Max

    Where did we put that wheelbarrow the albino had? -Inigo Montoya
    Over the albino, I think. -Fezzik

    You can’t hurt me. Westley and I are joined by the bonds of love. And you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords. -Buttercup

    Natural Born Killers:

    Mister rabbit says, “A moment of realization is worth a thousand prayers.” -Mickey

    You make every day feel like kindergarten. -Mallory

    How sexy am I now, huh? Flirty boy! How sexy am I now? -Mallory

    I see angels, Mickey. They’re comin’ down for us from heaven. And I see you ridin’ a big red horse, and you’re drivin’ them horses, whippin’ ’em, and the’re spittin’ and frothin’ all ‘long the mouth, and the’re comin’ right at us. And I see the future, and there’s no death, ’cause you and I, we’re angels… -Mallory

    Live on national TV? JESUS HAROLD CHRIST ON A F***ING RUBBER CRUTCH, IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME? -Dwight McClusky

    It’s fate, you know. Nobody can stop fate, nobody can. -Mickey

    You know what I say? I say to hell with going back to our cells. Let’s go out there, and run down the stairs, and go out in a hail of bullets. And then we’ll die! And then we’ll really be free. -Mallory
    That’s poetry. But we’ll do that when all else fails. -Mickey

    S**t, man, I’m a natural born killer. -Mickey

    Oh, how could I forget So I married an Axe Murderer:

    Tony: So who’s in this Pentavirate?
    Stuart: The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, *and* Colonel Sanders before he went tits up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee *beady* eyes, and that smug look on his face. “Oh, you’re gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!”
    Charlie: Dad, how can you hate “The Colonel”?
    Stuart: Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes ya crave it fortnightly, smartass!

    Harriet: Do you actually like haggis?
    Charlie: No, I think it’s repellent in every way. In fact, I think most Scottish cuisine is based on a dare.

    Charlie: You know, Scotland has its own martial arts. Yeah, it’s called F**k You. It’s mostly just head butting and then kicking people when they’re on the ground.

    Charlie: It’s like Campbell’s Cup-O’-ccino!

    Stuart: I’m not kidding, that boy’s head is like Sputnik; spherical but quite pointy at parts! Now that was offside, wasn’t it? He’ll be crying himself to sleep tonight, on his huge pillow.

    Charlie: Harriet. Harry-ette. Hard-hearted harbinger of haggis. Beautiful, bemuse-ed, bellicose butcher.

    Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

    Looking across the London street at Mina, Dracula slips down his sun specs, and says:

    “See me. See me — now.”

    It’s equally as erotic and sexually charged as the line about crossing the oceans, which, I loved, too.

    Most of the favourites mentioned in this thread so far are much too recent for me. I don’t know more than a few of ’em. I tend not to watch films which are ‘popculture popular’ or ‘filled with quotable lines for teens to quote’. (Tarantino based his career off this). I usually winnow out not just ‘the line’ –but the moments in the film where the acting was good; and the line just happens to be there too.

    What I think is that people tend to valorize whatever media they grew up with. Music or movies or TV, either/any. Obviously I didn’t grow up in the 1930s; but nevertheless I simply never bother to watch a flick if it has a Roman numeral in it (indicating sequel or franchise).

    After all, why go backward? I’d rather try to improve the media I’m exposed to, rather than dilute the brew. For instance, I’m totally weak on my Shakespeare. Elizabethan language kills me. Nevertheless, I’d always rather try to become more versed in something worthwhile like that, rather than watch another ‘Police Academy’ or ‘Saw’ or ‘Fast Furious’ sequel.

    The upshot is: I feel like I could rattle off my favourites for days on end and never come to a movie made more recently than the nineteen fifties. Bonafide classics, all the way. I think the only franchise flicks I’ve ever seen/enjoyed were probably as few as these: Star Trek II, Rocky II, Godfather II, French Connection II. I just don’t believe you can milk a cow more than once.

    Yeah. Once the whole ‘teen sex comedy movie’ trend started, once adult stories stopped predominating, I throw up my hands. And now that so many films are merely computer animations with actor voice-overs, forget it.

    Anyway…
