    Thought this'd make an interesting thread. It's probably been done before, but I haven't found a past one, and want to start a new one anyway.

    So, what's your favourite line of dialogue in cinema?

    Dimmy :)

    My favourite (not necessarily the "best", can't be bothered with all that argy-bargy)

    Glengarry Glen Ross - "Blake" (Alec Baldwin)

    "**** you, that's my name!"

    Can't remember the line exactly but it was the line up scene in the usual suspects " F U U F C sucker":)

    Also when father Gruder says "time for devine intervention. I kick ass for the lord" in BrainDead (AKA deadalive).

    A couple..

    Foul mouthed? **** you!

    Eddie Murphy Bverley Hills Cop.

    and...

    "I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?" :smoke:

    You don't (shouldn't) need me to tell you who said it :D

    "I love the smell of napalm in the morning."

    The Blues Brothers sitting in the car just after the concert, where it ends "and we are wearing sunglasses" or similar.

    God where to start.

    But her's a few I like:

    "Who are those guys?" from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

    "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" Apocolypse Now

    "You f****d up, you trusted us." Otter in Animal House

    "What we have here is a failure to communicate" Cool Hand Luke

    "Yippee kiyaa motherf***eR !!" Bruce in Die Hard

    "fudge you, you fudge" which I think was in Repo Man. But that whole film has some brilliant dialogue.

    Apparently every great line of movie dialogue needs to have a swear word in it!

    I think I would look no further than "The Big Lebowski" or pretty much any Coen Brothers Movie.

    Also some old Mel Brooks movieshas some great quotes.

    Or Duel- "You cant beat me on the incline!!!"

    Personal Favourite - Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets...

    When quizzed on how he apparently has such a correct understanding in the novels he's written, his character melvin replies to the question 'How do you understand women' with:

    "I think of a man, and I take away Reason and Accountability".

    :rotfl: - quality.

    Diamonds are forever... where Bond meets a rather buxom young lady in a casino

    Plenty: Hi, I'm Plenty.
    Bond: But of course you are.
    Plenty: Plenty O'Toole.
    Bond: Named after your father, perhaps?

    "Why do I do this? Three reasons: the pay is good, the scenery changes, and they let me use explosives" - Armageddon

    The start of Pulp Fiction is a classic with John Travolta talking to Samuel Jackson

    "Also, you know what they call a Quarter Pounder with cheese in Paris? -

    They don't call it a Quarter pounder with cheese? -

    No, they got the metric system there, they wouldn't know what the a Quarter Pounder is -

    What'd they call it?

    Royale with Cheese."
