Favorite Movie/TV Quotes
« on: June 27, 2012, 02:35:18 AM »
I thought it would be interesting to start a thread where people posted some of their favorite quotes from movies or television shows. Feel free to post humorous quotes if you wish, but I'd like this to be primarily a thread of philosophical, spiritual, and inspirational quotations. Also, rate the movie or television program from which the quotation came on a scale of one to four (four being the highest.) One last thing: let's try to keep this thread from turning into a running list of quotes from the same source (e.g. three pages of Star Trek quotations.)

OK, I'll start with these:


"When you forgive, you love. And when you love, God's light shines on you."

"Happiness is only real when it's shared."

INTO THE WILD- 4


"Great ambition and conquest without contribution is without significance."

THE EMPEROR'S CLUB- 3

I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.
 


I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.
 


Red - The Shawshank Redemption


Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

"You can do whatever you want with your life, but one day you'll know what love truly is. It's the sour and the sweet. And I know sour, which allows me to appreciate the sweet."
-Vanilla Sky

 "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!"
-A Few Good Men

I actually heard the quote from A Few Good Men referenced in an Orthodox sermon I listened to on line once. It certainly applies to a guy like me. If God granted me my wish and revealed Himself (Truth) in His fullness all at once, I fear I would end up like King Solomon as a babbling madman. Lord knows in my broken state I cannot handle the whole Truth. May He continue to bless me with Understanding, in His will, His way, and in His perfect discernment of time.
There are heathens that live with more virtue than I. The devil himself believes Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Neither of these things truly makes me Christian.

Sorry though I forgot to rate them... Vanilla Sky 4 - Few Good Men 2.5

At risk of repeating the same source I forgot a couple others I like from Vanilla Sky:

"Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around"

"Open your eyes!"

I saw this movie in the theater with my mother when it first came out. When this scene occurred, I couldn't contain my laughter. I felt so ashamed, and my mom cast a disapproving glance at me, but then finally she laughed out loud too.

"Sucking the marrow out of life doesn't mean choking on the bone."

"There's a time for daring and there's a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for."

Dead Poets Society 4

Not sure if this next quote counts as it is from a poem that is quoted in the movie. I might be breaking the rules here Gebre! ;D  While we are all sinners and fall short of God's glory it is also from Walt Whitman who allegedly lived a very questionable life to say the least. Then again who am I to judge and the man wrote some great poems near as I can tell...

"...what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. "That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

Interesting to me that as a young man searching for something this poem was very powerful indeed. Now that I know what I'm searching for, and strive to grow in the author of this powerful play we call life, this poem means more than I could have possibly imagined back then. God's grace is surely given freely to all for it has been given to a fool like me.

Lord God I love you, have mercy, and continue to purify my sinful heart. Continue to bless me with the Holy Spirit strengthening my faith for my faith is still weak. Forgive me Lord Jesus, I have little faith.

What will my verse be? Hopefully whatever God wills. This morning let me begin by offering peace, grace, and love to you all. 

God bless!

I'm really glad you posted that, Alan. Lately I've been feeling very uncertain about my future -- I've been thinking a lot about the possibility of becoming Orthodox which, in addition to the anxiety it produces directly, for me entails also the question "Does considering leaving the Catholic Church make one a bad Catholic?" Anyhow, that Walt Whitman verse

"...what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. "That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

really speaks to me at the moment. (Sorry if I'm going too far off-topic.  :-[  :-\)

“What happens in a man’s life is already written.
A man must move through life as his destiny wills.
Yet each man is free to live as he chooses.
Though they seem opposite, both are true.”

I was trying to make a joke but messed it up. I remember that actor (GW Bailey) being in a biblical movie, but it wasn't St. Paul he played, but St. Barnabas:



The movie though was titled Paul the Apostle  :)

"Sucking the marrow out of life doesn't mean choking on the bone."

"There's a time for daring and there's a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for."

Dead Poets Society 4

Not sure if this next quote counts as it is from a poem that is quoted in the movie. I might be breaking the rules here Gebre! ;D  While we are all sinners and fall short of God's glory it is also from Walt Whitman who allegedly lived a very questionable life to say the least. Then again who am I to judge and the man wrote some great poems near as I can tell...

"...what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. "That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

Interesting to me that as a young man searching for something this poem was very powerful indeed. Now that I know what I'm searching for, and strive to grow in the author of this powerful play we call life, this poem means more than I could have possibly imagined back then. God's grace is surely given freely to all for it has been given to a fool like me.

Lord God I love you, have mercy, and continue to purify my sinful heart. Continue to bless me with the Holy Spirit strengthening my faith for my faith is still weak. Forgive me Lord Jesus, I have little faith.

What will my verse be? Hopefully whatever God wills. This morning let me begin by offering peace, grace, and love to you all. 

God bless!

Anyone remember the T.V. series Northern Exposure?

"Sometimes when you look back on a situation, you realize it wasn't all you thought it was. A beautiful girl walked into your life. You fell in love. Or did you? Maybe it was only a childish infatuation, or maybe just a brief moment of vanity."

"I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse."

"The richest man is the guy who has nothing."

"It's the same with white people. They cleared the forest, they dug up the land, and they gave us the flu. But they also brought power tools and penicillin and Ben and Jerry's ice cream."

"The Thin Red Line". I won't write quotes, because then I would have to paste whole script. Beautiful movie about life.

ADDED - but, to be ontop, I'll add at least one:

"One man looks at a dying bird and thinks there's nothing but unanswered pain. That death's got the final word, it's laughing at him. Another man sees that same bird, feels the glory, feels something smiling through it."

*mutters* context, he wants context...

Quote
Redneck Zombies
Ferd Mertz: "Do not... open till... Christmas!"

An illiterate redneck finds a barrel of highly toxic experimental chemical warfare nuclear waste. Since he can't read he thinks the warning on the barrel says "do not... open till... Christmas".

Quote
Revenge of the Nerds
Alpha Betas: "Nerds! Nerds! Nerds! Nerds!"
Louis: "Where are they?"
Gilbert: "I think they're talking about us, Louis"
Louis: "No way!"

Meganerds Louis and Gilbert have just arrived at college their freshmen year and they're moving their stuff to the dorm. The jocks and popular kids are yelling "Nerds!" at them. Loius is confused because he doesn't know he's a nerd. (at the end of the movie he says he just found out he was a nerd... sort of a coming out of the closet moment)

Quote
Rocky IV
"I must break you."
"If he dies... he dies."

It's a Russian boxer, ergo he's evil. Ivan Drago or something. Steroid user as well. Oh, and he's evil.

Quote
The Sandlot
Ham Porter: "Hey, you want a s'more?"
Smalls: "Some more of what?"
Ham Porter: "No, do you want a s'more?"
Smalls: "I haven't had anything yet... so how can I have some more of nothing?"
Ham Porter: "You're killing me, Smalls!"

S'more context?

Quote
Saw VI
"Look at me! When you're killing me you look at me!"

A guy has 6 of his employees before him, put in a trap, and he is forced to decide which four of them will die. At the end there are two left and he decides to save the girl. Just before the gun kills the guy he says the line above.

Quote

"I've decided not to stay"

The old man Brooks says this as an explanation when he commits suicide.

Police Academy
"Jones. Larvell Jones. Monsignor Larvell Jones. MD."

Context: Jones telling Mahoney his name.


The Princess Bride
"If you haven't got your health, then you haven't got anything." - Count Rugen

Context: The good ole count giving sage advice to the virtuous prince Humperdink.


Army of Darkness
"Good? Bad? I'm the guy with the gun." - Good Ash

Context: Good Ash is about to blow bad Ash away. Raimi inexplicably cut this line (the best one in the entire movie) out of his cut.


Cannibal Women in the Avacado Jungle of Death
"Oh my God, you're marinating me!" - Jim

Context: Jim, played by Bill Maher, realises that he is not being bathed by sexy ladies, but rather being marinated by some cannibals and is about to be cooked.


Night of the Living Dead 3D
"When the dead walk you gotta call the cops!" - Henry

Context: Henry finally realises that there are zombies attacking his farmhouse, and that maybe calling the cops would be a good thing (he previously didn't want to call them because he grows a lot of pot and he and the local police have "an understanding")

Dodgeball #1
White Goodman: Go ahead, make your jokes, Mr. Jokey... Joke-maker. But let me hit you with some knowledge. Quit now. Save yourself the embarrassment of losing with these losers in Las Vegas, La Fleur.

Peter La Fleur: Alliteration aside, I'll take my chances in the tournament.

White Goodman: Yeah, you will take your chances.

Peter La Fleur: I know. I just said that.

White Goodman: I know you just said that.

Peter La Fleur: Okay, I'm not sure where you're going with this.

White Goodman: Well, I'm not sure where *you're* going with this.

Peter La Fleur: That's what I said.

White Goodman: That's what I'm saying to *you*.

Peter La Fleur: All right.

White Goodman: ...Touché.

Dodgeball #2
Cotton McKnight: I'm being told that Average Joe's does not have enough players and will be forfeiting the championship match.

Pepper Brooks: It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for 'em.

Dodgeball #3
Cotton McKnight: Looks like it's gonna be a two-on-one, a menage a trois of pain.

Pepper Brooks: Usually you pay double for that kind of action, Cotton.

Dodgeball #4
White Goodman: There's no reason we need to be shackled by the strictures of the employee-employer relationship. Unless you're into that sort of thing. In which case, I got some shackles in the back. I'm just kidding. But seriously, I've got 'em.

Dodgeball #5
White Goodman: At Globo Gym we understand that "ugliness" and "fatness" are genetic disorders, much like baldness or necrophilia, and it's only your fault if you don't hate yourself enough to do something about it.

Dodgeball #6
Cotton McKnight: We haven't seen Average Joe's yet. They haven't made it to the court. It could be a psychological ploy, or something worse.

Pepper Brooks: They're definitely not on the court, Cotton. Their absence is noticeable.

Dodgeball #7
White Goodman: Nobody makes me bleed his own blood. Nobody!

"You're what the French call, les incompentes"

Gee, as a kid I had such the hots for her. That scene was what did it. French really is the language of love.
True patriotism sometimes requires of men to act exactly contrary, at one period, to that which it does at another, and the motive which impels them — the desire to do right — is precisely the same.

Bill: I remember one time my father came home from a night on the town which of course had turned into a week, and my mother said: "John, is there anything you won't drink?" and my father shot back, "Poison... I'm saving it for you." (Laughing) And I and my brother, who is now an alcoholic himself, just about died laughing...

Bill: Another time I was cut from the high school football team and my mother said: "Central's lost a fullback but the McNeal's have gained a daughter." And in front of the other players too... priceless! Good times, good times...

Lisa: And this is a happy memory for you?

Bill: Of course! Why shouldn't it be? ...

"I had a small house of brokerage on Wall Street.  Many days no business come to my hut.  But Jimmy has fear?  A thousand times no!  I never doubted myself for a minute, for I knew that my monkey-strong bowels were girded with strength, like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo ... dung. ... The glorious sunset of my heart was fading. Soon the super karate monkey death car would park in my space.  But Jimmy has fancy plans, and pants to match.  Monkey clown horrible karate browned and yummy like a cute small baby chick will now eat the donkey."
