12. Dr. Evil: “You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their heads! Now evidently, my cycloptic colleague informs me that that can’t be done. Can you remind me what I pay you people for? Honestly, throw me a bone here.”

  1. “I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen.”

    Lloyd Dobbler in “Say Anything”


    Westley as he tumbles down the hill in “The Princess Bride”

    “Mawiage is wha bwings us togevah today.”

    Priest from “The Princess Bride” (AKA the best movie EVER)

  2. Oh, God… so many… I could just submit the entire script for every Mel Brooks and Monty Python movie. Love the Dugan quote and of course the French Taunter. “I wave my private parts at your aunties!”

    There… that should get you some search hits for “hot south indian aunties”.

    “Get away from her, you BITCH!”
    ~Ripley from Aliens~

    “I have a vewy gweat fwiend in Wome named Biggus Dickus.”
    ~a speech impedimented Pontius Pilate~ from Python’s Life of Brian

    “I have 5 terrorists heading southwest on Bakalakadaka Street!”
    ~Gary~ from Team America

    “Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.”
    ~Clemenza~ from the Godfather

    In honor of the late Barbara Billingsley:
    “Chump don’t want the help, chump don’t get the help. Jive-ass dude don’t got no brains anyhow…”
    ~Passenger who speaks ‘Jive’~ from Airplane

    “Excuse me while I pull that out of my ass.”
    ~Samuel L Jackson~ from Long Kiss Goodnight

    “Come out to the coast… we’ll get together… have a few laughs…”
    ~John McLean, crawling through an air duct~ from Die Hard

    “Damn, shit, Respect my fuckin’ authoritah!”
    ~Eric Cartman, laying the smackdown on Saddam~ South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut

    “I will not be threatened by a walking meatloaf!”
    ~David Kessler, to his dead friend Jack~ from American Werewolf in London.

    Oh man, I can’t stop… I love movie talk. I could add Kyle’s speech to Sara Conner in The Terminator about how it will keep coming and never stop. I could add the entire exchange between the troops and the General during the parade scene in Stripes. And the President’s big speech in The American President, and Independence Day. Belushi’s speech in Animal House about the Germans bombing Pearl Harbor.

    But I have to end this comment sometime…
