    Default Favourite lines in films

    The Fugitive

    Kimble: I didn't kill my wife!
    Gerard: I don't care!



    American Psycho

    Bateman: Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where, uh, Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to "Land of Confusion". In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. "In Too Deep" is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as, uh, anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your *******. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like "In the Air Tonight" and, uh, "Against All Odds". Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is "Sussudio", a great, great song, a personal favorite.



    The Warriors

    Luther: Warriors, come out to play-i-ay.



    Commando

    Pretty much the whole script but I'll limit myself.

    Matrix: [after killing a man in the plane] Don't disturb my friend, he's dead tired

    Bennett: I really love listening to your little ****-ant soldiers trying to talk tough. They make me laugh. If Matrix was here, he'd laugh too.

    Bennett: John, I'm not going to shoot you between the eyes. I'm going to shoot you between the balls.



    The Big Lebowski

    Walter:Also, Dude; "Chinaman" is not the preferred nomenclature. "Asian-American", please.



    I'll think of more later.

    Fight Club

    Tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of Raymond K. Hessel's life. His breakfast will taste better than any meal you and I have ever tasted.

    Man, I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables – slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won't. We're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

    Narrator: When people think you're dying, they really, really listen to you, instead of just …
    Marla Singer: … instead of just waiting for their turn to speak?
    Narrator: Yeah. Yeah.



    American beauty

    Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in.

    I'd always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn't a second at all. It stretches on forever, like an ocean of time. For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout Camp, watching falling stars. And yellow leaves from the maple trees that lined our street. Or my grandmother's hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper. And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand-new Firebird. And Janie... and Janie. And... Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain. And I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry, you will someday.

    (Looking through Shaun's LPs for suitable records to throw at two approaching zombies)

    Ed: 'Purple Rain'?
    Shaun: No.
    Ed: 'Sign o' the Times'?
    Shaun: Definitely not.
    Ed: The 'Batman' soundtrack?
    Shaun: Throw it.
    Ed: 'Dire Straits'?
    Shaun: Throw it.
    Ed: Ooh, 'Stone Roses'.
    Shaun: Um, No.
    Ed: 'Second Coming'.
    Shaun: I like it!
    Ed: Ahhh! 'Sade'.
    Shaun: Yeah, but that's Liz's!
    Ed: Yeah, but she did dump you.
    Shaun: Oh!

    "No one puts Baby in the corner" ( Dirty dancing). the person who wrote the script and managed to get that line in the film must have a strong personality. Hilarious.
