Here's a list of all-time great movie quotes I stumbled upon while looking up something else. Instead of using it for my TT, I'm composing a list of my own favorites and then seeing if there's an overlap. (BTW, I did this same subject for a TT back in ... gulp ... 2007. I did this one without referring to that one.)

If you're a movie lover, please be sure to include your own favorites in the comments.

1) "Why, she wouldn't harm a fly." Psycho (1960)

2)  "Practically perfect in every way." Mary Poppins (1964)

3)  "KHAN!" Star Trek II, Wrath of Kahn (1982)

4)  "See you, Katie." "See you, Hubbell." The Way We Were (1973) sniffle, sniffle

5) "Yippee kye aye, Mother f****er." Die Hard (1988)

6)  "We rob banks." Bonnie and Clyde (1968)

7)  "I'm sorry, I'm anal." "That's a polite word for what you are." Annie Hall (1977)

8)  "Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?" Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)

9)  "Nothing is over until we say it's over! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?" Animal House (1978)

10)  "I''ll make him an offer he can't refuse." The Godfather (1972)

11) "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." The Wizard of Oz (1939)

12) "Here's looking at you, kid." Casablanca (1942)

13) "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." Gone with the Wind (1939)

    Cool list.
    Mine: "What we have here is a failure to communicate." (Cool Hand Luke)

  2. Great list -- and one of the movies referenced also appears in My T13 this week. *VBG*

  3. This is a great list. The Die Hard movies are a secret pleasure of mine :)

  4. "It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life." - Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship of the Ring.

    "'Taters? What's 'taters, Precious?" - Gollum, The Two Towers.

    "My friends! You bow to no one." Aragorn, The Return of the King

  5. I forgot this one -

    "I'm not dead yet!" - Monty Python and the Holy Grail

  6. 2 makes me want to watch her today !!

  7. the last four are my favorites. I also like Show me the money and You had me at Hello. Oh, I like the Cool Hand Luke one just mentioned too. I still use that, along with "What's it all about, Alfie."

  8. I am always quoting movies at times where the quotes seem to make sense in the situation, although often they make sense only to me! Can't think of any off the top of my head now, except, "He's the cook, okay?" from Spun, and "Fill your hands, you sons of b------!" from True Grit.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
