No, though you're getting a little warmer. Okay, hear's another line that will probably give it away:

"Then one day I hear 'Reach for it, mister.' I spun around, and there I was standing face to face with a six year old kid. Well, I just laid down my guns and walked away. Little b-----d shot me in the a--."

Okay..... since you put it that way.... You are now quoting a line spoken by Gene Wilder in the jailhouse scene of "Blazing Saddles" as he recounts why he left his quick-draw gun-slinging days behind. You're right. That last quote was a giveaway

Though I must admit that I still can't place the lines you posted earlier anywhere in the movie. (and I've probably seen that movie 2 dozen times... but its been awhile...although I still remember the stock number of the VHS copy we stocked in the video store I worked at in the late 80's.)

You got it. I just got the HD DVD of Blazing Saddles as part of Toshiba's HD DVD player promotion, so it was fresh in my mind. The lines were spoken by Harvey Korman as Hedley Lamarr.

Here they are in context -- I'll bet you remember them now:

Hedley Lamarr: My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
Taggart: God darnit, Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.

Hedley Lamarr: My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention.
Taggart: Ditto.
Hedley Lamarr: "Ditto?" "Ditto," you provincial putz?

And I just realized -- I gave the wrong clue earlier, as "poisonous" referred to Governor William J. Le Petomane (Le Ptomaine), who was, of course, played by Mel Brooks.

Thanks for clarifying that quote, Paul. I would never have gotten it without your 2nd quote post. A great selection.

My turn.

Okay, so I'm only going to post the first 3/4ths of this following quote since the last part would be a total giveaway.

Here it is:

"This business is a living organism, multiplying constantly, surrounded by predators. There's no room for idle time or second guessing. New discoveries are made hourly. New ideas are ready to be devoured, redefined."

-Jon

No one got it yet? I think I know it, but I trust that someone else will get it. ;)

Ahh, just go for it, Paul. And extra bonus points* to you if you state where in the film the quote is spoken.

*The awarding and recognition of points in this game is completely arbitrary and founded on imagination. The perceived value of such points, though unrelated to market activity can generally be considered on the valuation table to be somewhere between 70's era fuzzy dice, and the door prize from Bingo night.

Do you mean that my trust is misplaced? Wouldn't that make it . . . . Antitrust?

That was awesome. Antitrust is correct.

Your turn, sir.

Okay, here we go:

Shot in the dark here. I will offer the first of 3 movies I suspect this might be from:

"Constantine"

Interesting guess, but very, very cold.

That was going to be my second guess - but judging from how cold my earlier one was, I suspect it isn't "The Crow" either.

If it's not, than my 3rd guess is:

"Gladiator"

Pauly Shore is Dead? that's just a total shot in the dark, cause I've never even seen it. Also, the line sounds familiar, so that probably means I'm wrong.
