"We can't stop here, this is Bat Country!"

From Ananova Via Metafilter, a list of the top ten movie one-liners of all time...

1. "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off" - The Italian Job;
2. "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" - Gone with the Wind;
3. "We want the finest wines available to humanity, we want them here and we want them now" - Withnail and I;
4. "You talkin' to me?" - Taxi Driver;
5. "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" - Apocalypse Now;
6. "I'll have what she's having ..." - When Harry met Sally;
7. "All my life I wanted to be a gangster" - Goodfellas;
8. "I do wish we could chat longer. But I'm having an old friend for dinner" - Silence of the Lambs;
9. "Infamy, Infamy, they've all got it in for me" - Carry on Cleo;
10. "He's not the Messiah - he's a very naughty boy" - Life of Brian.

The thread over at Metafilter is chock full of other great lines that didn't make the list.
A few Keanu utterances from The Matrix as well as a line from DA are among those in the discussion as well.

My favorite non-Keanu movie lines include the one in the title (from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) and "Yeah! Let's go get sushi and not pay."

Bogus Jouney is full of great lines - "I got a full-on robot chubbie".
So is Speed- "Shoot the hostage."
Even in one of his smaller roles, Tod in Parenthood, Keanu had the memorable "You know, Mrs. Buchman, you need a license to buy a dog, to drive a car - hell, you even need a license to catch a fish. But they'll let any butt-reaming asshole be a father."

I could go on and on.

What are some of your favorite movie lines?

cinema | from inside the mind of krix at March 13, 2003 11:18 AM .

Ooooh, let's see... (good blog topic Krix!) :)

From "Swimming With Sharks"

Kevin Spacey's character says, "You're happy, I hate that!" (His character has a TON of great lines in this movie, but I'm blanking on them right now).

From "Oh Brother Where Art Thou"

"Do NOT seek the treasure."

"He's bonafide."

"Damn we're in a tight spot."

"Gopher, Everett?"

"I happen to be a student of human nature myself, Big Dan."

From "Glengarry Glen Ross"

"Will you get out of here? Will you? I'm trying to run an office here. Now will you go to lunch? Go to lunch. Will you go to lunch!?' (probably my all time favorite line!)

I could go on and on too, but I'll stop!

"So... Now you know what you are...
And now you know what we are.
You'll never grow old Michael, and you'll never die. But you must FEED..."

*hint* It's not Keanu, but another well-loved actor who's name starts with a K :-)

Permanent record; "I've never actually given a party before, and I'm not really sure what to do"
-Then, after getting an answer from his friend, with wide-eyed enthousiasm; 'IT'S EASY!'

Another Keanuquote? From 'Aunt Julia & the scriptwriter/Tune in tomorrow "I love you, Julia, and I think I always will" ;-D
