They left out, "Earn it" and "Tell me that I have lived a good life", both from Saving Private Ryan.

Palladian said...

Pretty good, though quite a few of the more recent movie lines don't really work so well. Gladiator?

Palladian said...

Brando got a lot of good lines.

ricpic said...

Left out "We don't need no steenkin' badges."

ricpic said...

Speaking of Brando, the full quote from Waterfront is "I coulda been a contender, I coulda been a somebody instead of a bum, which is what I am."

David said...

"Who are those guys"

bearbee said...

Dr Strangelove -

Slim Pickens riding the bomb: Waaaaaaaahooooooooooo

Palladian said...

So all Althouse needs to do is post a clip from 200 Motels to keep her "200" theme going today...

traditionalguy said...

It may be too long, but I liked Robert Duval's, "You're talking pretty big for a one eyed fat man, Rooster" followed by John Wayne's reply.

Chuckercanuck said...

Oh vey:

Should not have included 300.

Missing:

The Exorcist: "Let Jesus f%$# you" and "Mirabile Dictu, wouldn't you say father?"

Soylent Green: "Soylent Green.... Its people! Its people!! Ahhhhh!"

NoName said...

What is the "chocolate shake" quote ?

MadisonMan said...

What Knockers!

I love the first 30 minutes of that movie. The rest, eh.

Odd that there weren't any quotes from Musicals.

Ron said...

left out "Yippee-k-ay, motherfucker!"

Ron said...

Could have had at least 5 more quotes from Casablanca alone!

Ron said...

left out "You can't fight in here, this is the War Room!"

Widmerpool said...

"I'm a big girl."

"Yeah, and in all the right places, too."

Steven said...

Too skewed toward the last 30 years.

Two absurd omissions (unless I missed them):

"I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. De Mille"

"Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night."

NKVD said...

"I am Spartacus!"

OldGrouchy said...

Simply one person's opinion, eh!

traditionalguy said...

Add to the list General Patton's answer to "Where are you going General?" which was "To Berlin where I am personally going to shoot that paper-hanging son-of-a bitch." (that was added for C-4's enjoyment)

NKVD said...

Or, "You win a war by making that other son of a bitch die for his country."

We seem to have forgotten that in this country. Replace country in the quote with religion, and we are up to date.

traditionalguy said...

To equal out the theaters of war, in Empire of the Sun Christian bale as the young Jim screaming out over and over,"P-51, Cadillac of the skies".

Lem said...

Fuck you, too. Don't call me "lady". I come in here, I give these things to you, you check, you make your phone calls, look suspicious, ask questions. I'm sick. I have sickness all around me and you fucking ask me about my life? "What's wrong?" Have you seen death in your bed? In your house? Where's your fucking decency? And then I'm asked fucking questions. What's... wrong? You suck my dick. That's what's wrong. And you, you fucking call me "lady"? Shame on you. Shame on you. Shame on both of you.

Linda Partridge, Magnolia (1999)

Lassie, Oh my Lassie come home. ***allowing 3 second hug on school property***.

Shane! **echo**. SHANE! COME BAAAAACK

Lem said...

I don't want you as quiet as an ant pissing on cotton. I want you as quiet as an ant not even thinking about pissing on cotton.

Heist 2001

traditionalguy said...

Also from Shane, "Mother loves you Shane. I know she does."-- thereby causing Shane to leave for good.

Lem said...

Not that anyone cares what I say, but the restaurant is at the *other* end of the Universe.

Lem said...

I cant view this from work.. ergo the guesses..

blake said...

"Are you not entertained?" is actually a pretty good line.

Noname, chocolate shake or milkshake? "I drink your milkshake" is from There Will Be Blood.

Terrible list, of course. Where are the old greats? Chaplin! Keaton! Valentino!

john said...

"Odd that there weren't any quotes from Musicals."

Nor from the entire silent film era.

Well ..

john said...

There could have been 10 alone from "Some Like it Hot".

In fact, were there any MM quotes at all? That's a shame.

john said...

"Well, nobody's perfect."

john said...

"I Wanna Be Loved By You"

bearbee said...

Before carbon footprints.
"Hey Ma! Top of the world".

In The Godfather somebody must have said: "Godfaddah"

holdfast said...

I need more of the Duke - maybe something regarding St. Mere Eglise? Something from Bob Mitchum "Only two kinds of people are gonna stay on this beach: those that are already dead and those that are gonna die. Now get off your butts" or Henry Fonda The reinforcements will have to follow us wherever we are. We're starting the war from right here. Head inland. We're going inland" from the same flick.

Lem said...

What a disappointment.
They didn't have anything from the Marx Brothers.

I married your mother because I wanted children. Imagine my disappointment when you arrived.

john said...

Opposite:

"I wish you were a wishing well so I could tie a bucket to ya and sink ya".

/grapefruit smash

That has to be the most painful lead-up in film history.

Lem said...

Professor Wagstaff: I was gonna get a flat bottom but the girl at the boat house didn't have one.

Horse Feathers (1932)

Anything further father?

NKVD said...

"If that's too soon, leave in a minute and a huff!"

"How an elephant got in my pajamas I'll never know."

"Viaduct!"

"This means war!"

NKVD said...

From Glengarry Glen Ross "First prize is a Cadillac El Dorado, anybody want to see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired."

James said...

"I saved Latin! What did you ever do?"

"I'm sick of these motherf**king snakes on my motherf**king plane!"

"My sister! My daughter! My sister! My daughter!"

blake said...

NKVD--

Coffee is for closers!!

cardeblu said...

Thought of a few right off the top of my head that weren't included. The first 2 are from the same movie, and the last one might not be that well known.

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

"HELLO! My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father; prepare to die!"

"Never give up! Never surrender!"

Laura(southernxyl) said...

"...And I'm all out of bubblegum."

They could have filled the thing with lines from "The Princess Bride". That has got to be the number one most quoted movie ever.

Ron said...

Laura: hmmm...Princess Bride or Casablanca? Tough call!

Ron said...

"Make it 10,000. I'm only a poor corrupt official."

cardeblu said...

Two more--same actor, same and different movies:

"Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K."

"Whoa."

blake said...

I think they left the best parts out of certain quotes to make it in the 200 seconds.

Also, Oz is under-represented. "not in Kansas", "I'm melting", "What a world!", "Fly! Monkeys!"

Also, all the Dirty Harry movies, not just the "Death Wish" remake. And "Unforgiven". Etc.

Bruce Hayden said...

I agree about the Dirty Harry movies. Each one seemed to have the memorable line.

My problem with the list is that a lot of the quotes have never made the common lexicon, and some that have, weren't listed.

Lem said...

That's the last time you put a knife in me! Y'hear me?

Lem said...

You see the world through John Malkovich's eyes. Then after about 15 minutes, you're spit out into a ditch on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike!

Lem said...

No. No, I'm sorry, I don't know the number to, uh, my savings account because believe it or not I don't spend my entire day sitting around trying to memorize the fucking numbers to my fucking bank accounts! Moron!

traditionalguy said...

From The Quiet Man, John Wayne says, "There will be no bolts or locks between us Mary Kate...except those in your own mercenary little heart."

F15C said...

"No matter where you go, there you are."

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.

The Elder said...

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na!

The Elder said...

or perhaps: "You're no Presidential appointee, Elliot. The one that hired you was me. You've got thirty days."

Laura(southernxyl) said...

Gary Busey's character in Predator2:

"Lions. Tigers. Bears. Oh my."

john marzan said...

they forgot about Sunset Blvd. "Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my closeup."

Chip Ahoy said...

It's a trap!

Beta Conservative said...

"no, tomorrow egghead", Joe Pesci to Daniel Stern in Home Alone.

Used on my kids, now 24 and 26 with great frequency.

NKVD said...

Just quoted one of my favorites responding to hdhouse. From Pulp Fiction, "English, motherfucker, do you speak it?"

Has many applications these days.

Gimme a whiskey with ginger ale on the side...... and don't be stingy, baby

"You see, most blokes will be playing at 10. You’re on 10, all the way up. Where can you go from there? Nowhere. What we do, is if we need that extra push over the cliff...eleven. One louder."

We can quibble endlessly. But in my book, you have to include, i *am* big, it's the pictures that got small".

Norma Desmond

2yellowdogs said...

"I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse."

Watched it twice and didn't see it. It's a total joke without that line.
