Best line of dialogue in Cinema?...


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).

Most of the 1st ten minutes of Full Metal Jacket is full of classic dialogue.

"He saw something disturbing on TV" and the reply....."me too, its called Baywatch nights!"

"I'm sure we can handle this situation maturely, just like the responsible adults that we are. Isn't that right, Mr Poopy Pants".

Lesley Neilsen, Naked Gun 2 1/2.


A couple..

Foul mouthed? **** you!

Eddie Murphy Bverley Hills Cop.


"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.

I'll have to watch it again now!!!

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!


'Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son. '

Animal House, classic
You're gonna need a bigger boat - Jaws

When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth - Dawn of the Dead

What? You what? - Dog Soldiers

Elisabeth Shue to Nicolas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas.

" You can f*** my a*** . C** on my face. Whatever you wanna do. Just keep it outta my hair, I just washed it."

Steve Martin in The Jerk

Mama "You are not my natural born son"
Martin in tears " You mean I'm always gonna be this colour"

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!!!"
