We’ll always have Paris
This is Sparta

This is a difficult question. So many favorites…
But I’ll go with these two. For now.
“Accept me as I am. Only then can we discover each other.” -Guido Anselmi (8 1/2).
“Love is all a matter of timing. It’s no good meeting the right person too soon or too late.
If I’d live in another time or place…my story might have had a very different ending.” – Mr. Chow (2046)
In Dangerous Liaisons, where John Malkovich says to Glen Close, “Why is it that we always pursue those we cannot have?” Her snide reply: “Immaturity?”
“Don’t be a good neighbor to her. I’ll have to send you a love letter! Straight from my heart, fucker! You know what a love letter is? It’s a bullet from a fucking gun, fucker! You receive a love letter from me, and you’re fucked forever! You understand, fuck? I’ll send you straight to hell, fucker!… In dreams… I walk with you. In dreams… I talk to you. In dreams, you’re mine… all the time. Forever.”
- Frank Booth, “Blue Velvet”
“Everything you could ever want or be, you already have and are.”
- Dustin Hoffman, I ♥ Huckabees
Kind of throwaway lines, but I like the bit in Chungking Express where HK copper Tony Leung comes across his ex, the airhostess who dumped him. They’re in a convenience store, he’s in civvies and she’s dolled up for a night out with the new boyf who can be heard suggestively revving his motorcycle engine.
She, eyeing TL up and down, ‘You look better in uniform.’
He, rather ruefully, ‘So do you.’
(I can’t help thinking this woman must be a complete idiot. Also the second mention of WKW films on this page …)
“A grope is a grope. It’s not the Anunciation.”
- The History Boys
Bonnie Parker: What would you do if some miracle happened and we could walk out of here tomorrow morning and start all over again clean? No record and nobody after us, huh?
Clyde Barrow: Well, uh, I guess I’d do it all different. First off, I wouldn’t live in the same state where we pull our jobs. We’d live in another state. We’d stay clean there and then when we’d take a bank, we’d go into the other state.
-Bonnie & Clyde (1967) dir. Arthur Penn
Bernstein: A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn’t think he’d remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn’t see me at all, but I’ll bet a month hasn’t gone by since that I haven’t thought of that girl.
-Citizen Kane (1941) dir. Orson Wells
“Baby wants to fuck! Baby wants to fuck Blue Velvet!” ~ Frank Booth, Blue Velvet
“Isn’t there one lady among you who is considerate enough to satisfy her fellow human beings’ lust for BLOOD!?!”
- Montag the Magnificent, The Wizard of Gore
Best line ever in a ‘horror’ film.
“Beware, death sometimes takes the form of seduction”
-Fascination (Jean Rollin)
“Life is beautiful.”
It’s me Ana. It’s me Ana.—Spirit Of The Beehive
YOU are the vulgarian, you FUCK!
Kevin Kline in A FISH CALLED WANDA

“The blood of these whores is killing me!” – Dracula, Blood for Dracula
Pike-It’s his word
dutch-That ain’t what counts, it’s who you give it to.
The Wild Bunch
Harry shoots Ken
Harry: Like I’m not going to do nothing to you just because you’re standing about like Robert fucking Powell.
Ken: Like who?
Harry: Like Robert fucking Powell out of Jesus of fucking Nazareth.
- In Bruges
When we reach the sea, we’ll build a bigger ship and sail north to take Trinidad from the Spanish crown. Then we’ll sail on and take Mexico away from Cortes, what great treachery that will be! Then we shall control all of new Spain and will produce history as others produce plays…
I, the Wrath of God, will marry my own daughter and with her I’ll found the purest dynasty the earth has ever seen. Together we shall rule the whole of this continent. We’ll endure, I am the Wrath of God; Who else is with me?
Aguirre, the Wrath of God… I love these lines.
“Ah, Christina, but nobody ever said life was fair! I’m bigger than you and faster than you. I will always beat you.”
Dunaway as Crawford in MOMMIE DEAREST
(another movie positively brimming with quotables..)
“I’m not looking for happiness, life is better than that” – À coeur joie
@Deck – I loved that quote from Blood for Dracula too haha.
“You’re saying I would cut off a chicken’s head? Stick my dick in it? Fuck it… .And go “Aah”? You accuse me of fucking a chicken, motherfucker?"
-Rob Zombie “The Devil Rejects”
“You can say with safety that nowadays women have finally acknowledged their position of not liking men. We could say now that women don’t like men. They can acknowledge that they prefer the company of their own kind. I think we can also say generally that most men do not like other men. Most men prefer to like women. So women are the most liked by the most people. Men love women, women love children, and children love hamsters. A one-way slide. There is little going back the other way. Can hamsters love children? I leave you to deduce the rest.”
- Palmira, from 8 1/2 Women
You’re only supposed to blow the bloody doors off! – Charlie Croker The Italian Job (1969)
“May your father and mother drop dead if you have a cigarette and aren’t sharing.”
“All orphans here I see”
—-Cosimo, Big Deal On Madonna Street
Stalker: Let everything that’s been planned come true. Let them believe. And let them have a laugh at their passions. Because what they call passion actually is not some emotional energy, but just the friction between their souls and the outside world. And most important, let them believe in themselves. Let them be helpless like children, because weakness is a great thing, and strength is nothing. When a man is just born, he is weak and flexible. When he dies, he is hard and insensitive. When a tree is growing, it’s tender and pliant. But when it’s dry and hard, it dies. Hardness and strength are death’s companions. Pliancy and weakness are expressions of the freshness of being. Because what has hardened will never win.
somebody help me please to recognize the movie at 5:22 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVyWdL9EpU4 ( sorry for the OT )

It just wouldn’t matter because all the really good-looking girls would still go out with the guy from Mohawk cause they’ve got all the money. It just doesn’t matter if we win or we lose. It just doesn’t matter! It just doesn’t matter! It just doesn’t matter! - Meatballs
You were right, Garance. Love is simple. – Children of Paradise
