Those lines sound familiar Front, but I can't place them.

One sounds like it's from a Johnny Depp movie, the other from Last of the Mohicans - maybe.


More favorite lines:

Mrs. Coulter: I forgive you.

From The Golden Compass



Mr. Smith: Honey, I think you should know...I was married before.

Angry, Mrs. Smith slams on the car brakes, throwing Mr. Smith against the windshield where Mrs. Smith starts slapping at him, furious.

Mr. Smith [dodging]: Are you out of your mind?  What's the matter with you?

Mrs. Smith [in the words of wives all over the world throughout time]:  You're what's the matter with me!

From Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Right, Del. One IS from LOTM. But, which one?

Guess on the other three lines everybody!

LOL for Mrs. Smith!!

One of my favorite lines is from The Royal Tenenbaums. Richie (Luke Wilson) confides to his dad, Royal (Gene Hackman), that he's in love with his sister. They note that she's adopted, so it's not strictly incest.

Royal: Still, it's frowned upon ... [shrugs cheerfully] but what isn't, these days?


I use that line a lot in real life.

Right you are, Della!! Seeing that line again got me so riled up, I had to go rent the movie again. There's a new director's cut out now...I recommend it!!

BTW, "Without so much as a 'by your leave'" is also from LOTM.

I'll have to see TRT, Katherine! It sounds great!!

I like these couples of lines from THE LION IN WINTER.  Sorry FRONT-RANGER, I don't the origin of the two you cite. I could google it, but that would be cheatin..

Prince John: A knife! He's got a knife!
Eleanor: Of course he has a knife, he always has a knife, we all have knives! It's 1183 and we're barbarians! How clear we make it

There are many good lines in that movie.

REG:
    Yeah...And what have the Romans ever given us in return?!
XERXES:
    The aqueduct?
REG:
    What?
XERXES:
    The aqueduct.
REG:
    Oh. Yeah, yeah. They did give us that. Uh, that's true. Yeah.
COMMANDO #3:
    And sanitation.
LORETTA:
    Oh, yeah, sanitation, Reg. Remember what the city used to be like?
REG:
    Yeah. All right. I'll grant you the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the Romans have done.
MATTHIAS:
    And the roads.
REG:
    Well, yeah. Obviously the roads. I mean, the roads go without saying, don't they? But apart from the sanitation, the aqueduct, and the roads--
COMMANDO:
    Irrigation.
XERXES:
    Medicine.
COMMANDOS:
    Huh? Heh? Huh...
COMMANDO #2:
    Education.
COMMANDOS:
    Ohh...
REG:
    Yeah, yeah. All right. Fair enough.
COMMANDO #1:
    And the wine.
COMMANDOS:
    Oh, yes. Yeah...
FRANCIS:
    Yeah. Yeah, that's something we'd really miss, Reg, if the Romans left. Huh.
COMMANDO:
    Public baths.
LORETTA:
    And it's safe to walk in the streets at night now, Reg.
FRANCIS:
    Yeah, they certainly know how to keep order. Let's face it. They're the only ones who could in a place like this.
COMMANDOS:
    Hehh, heh. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh.
REG:
    All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
XERXES:
    Brought peace.
REG:
    Oh. Peace? Shut up!
