I'll admit I was being charitable when I implied that Billy Crystal had equal status with her.

Lorinda,
if you are going to quote "City Slickers", who can forget Jack Palance's performance ...
"I crap bigger than you."

Kudos to Bill Porter for posting the VO from the conclusion of "Raising Arizona," my favorite Sonnenfeld-DP'ed Cohen Bros. film.

Lest you forget it was Meg who made that entire scene work. ;)

A number of years ago, I was in New York doing some interviews for a television special, and my last subject was the noted screenwriter and author, Terry Southern (Candy, Magic Christian, Dr. Strangelove, Easy Rider). After the official interview, Terry and I sat in my hotel room drinking beers and bashing Ronald Reagen, discovering we had a lot in common politically. Somehow, we got into the topic of great lines from the movies, and I mentioned one of my favorites, from "The Loved One," based on the scathing novel about the funeral business, written by Evelyn Waugh.

In one scene, the owner of the Forest Lawn-like funeral business is meeting with his board of directors, who are informing him that his business will soon be in dire financial straits because they are about to run out of burial plots, and the only source of income will be from maintenance fees. It's too bad, one of his directors remarks, that his land is filled with burial plots, because otherwise he could turn the land into a retirement community, which benefits from constant turnover, and is a never-ending source of high income.

(As I am recalling this scene, I notice Terry Southern is giving me his undivided attention. Obviously, he is in thrall of my story telling prowess)

The CEO is played with much gusto by Jonathan Winters, whose beady eyes are dancing at the thought of that endless line of retirees moving into sparkling, expensive condos, with quick turnovers. As the official winds up his presentation, there is a momentary pause as the camera settles on a close-up of Jonathan Winters, who snarls,
"I've got to find a way to get those stiffs off my property!"

Terry Southern is now bolt upright in his chair, with a huge grin on his face, and he fairly yells at me,
"I wrote that! That was my line!"

I had totally forgotten that among his many credits, Terry Southern had indeed written the screenplay for "The Loved One." That was a great afternoon in the "Big Apple."

Terry Southern passed away in 1995.

I envy that you were able to meet him and have that conversation.

Didn't see the list but
"Snap out of it!" slap.

Cher (looking her best ever mind you) in Moonstruck slapping Nicholas Cage.

Kudos on the Raising Arizona quote. Fabulous film.

And, let's not forget "Snake Pliskin. I thought you were dead."

Escape from NY.

Someone else in another forum quoted the last lines of Big Trouble in Little China. Another good one.

Big Trouble In Little China, another classic. It's one of those movies that pokes fun at itself so well that some don't "get it" and think it's just a dorky movie. Not so! Full of terrific lines and performances all around.

Maybe not a top film quote, but from one of my favorite movies. Maybe you can all guess what it is from?

"Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it?"

Blade Runner ;-) I wouldn't know normally, but I watched it again, for (only) the second time, a couple of days ago.

Bang the Drum...

One of the things I remember about 'Raising Arizona' was how different the filmed looked. It was a ground breaker. Today its visual tour de force has seeped into the conscience of many films and upon another viewing a decade or two later- looks ordinary- brilliant but lacking that first time knock out punch. Happens to many films.


Here is a last line I like: Michael Moriarty in Bang The Drum Slowly, leaving the funeral of Robert DeNiro, a baseball player and teammate that many didnt care about but was befriended and protected by Moriarty after he learned DiNero had cancer and was dying, From here on in, I rag nobody.


just found this:

One of my favorites films to quote is Ghostbusters.

the "Is that true"? "Yes, it's true.....This man has no dick." line is great.
here is a link to more Ghostbuster quotes:

"Eating Raoul"

How could we forget this one! "Eating Raoul" from 1982 had one of my favorite lines, by Mary Woronov. She gave this line with a straight face, but I'll bet they had to do a lot of takes, as the cast probably kept cracking up: "It's amazing what you can do with a cheap piece of meat!".

"Eddie? That's a rather tender subject."

Should be easy.
