Favorite movie lines

I have many. Here are a couple of my favorites.

1. "There's no crying in baseball." Tom Hanks, A League of Their Own

2. "You want answers???"
"I want the truth."
"YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!" Jack Nicholson, Tom "I swear I am straight" Cruise, A Few Good Men

3. "I JUST ate a bug."
"Well keep your mouth shut." Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell in Overboard.

Let me hear yours.

LOL..I love all three of those movies!
I like the line in Overboard where she is sitting on the couch just going, "buh buh buh..." and the kid says, "I like it when she goes buh buh buh..."

So many really.

But, in another Jack Nicholson, "As Good As It Gets", the whole movie is so great. I love the line when he says.

"I'm drowning and you're describing the water."

The whole scene is hilarious. But, this phrase sums things up for me.

I love posts such as these. My taste in movies is really odd, and possibly a bit eclectic, so the themes of these run the gamut. On the surface these might seem weird, but each worked great in their respective scenes.

“God didn’t make Rambo; I made him.” – Richard Crenna in First Blood after Brian Dennehy’s character rhetorically asked, “What possessed God to make a man like Rambo?”

“If you go, we go.” – Kurt Russell in Backdraft while a group of firefighters were about to fall off a catwalk into the flames below.

“Yours or mine?” – Chevy Chase in Spies Like Us after being told by a KGB agent that the agent would cut off a finger each time that Chase’s character didn’t answer a question.

“I will.” – Andre Braugher in Glory after Mathew Broderick’s character asks the regiment, “Who will pick up the flag if it should happen to fall?”

“Go pick me out a winner, Bobby.” – Robert Redford’s request of the batboy in The Natural after his favorite bat breaks. The batboy proceeded to choose his own bat.

“Say it ain’t so, Joe. Say it ain’t so.” – A young baseball fan after it’s discovered that Shoeless Joe Jackson is involved in the 1919 Black Sox scandal.

I forgot to say that the Shoeless Joe quote came from Eight Men Out.

the court martial scene in the movie gandhi:

officer: "i was prepared to aid all those who applied"

judge: "how does a child, shot with a lee-enfield rifle, 'apply' for help?"

Laura--I can do every line from Overboard ("But if you have a baby, then you won't BE the baby anymore." It is my hands down favorite movie ever.

Marelle--that line sounds like my life every day.

Abnormal--you ran the gamut of humor to heart-wrenching. All good.

Christina--"candy is dandy but liquor is quicker"--amen to that and spoken like a true stay-at-home mom. Cheers.

IC-deep, dude.

OK, I like the Jack Nicholson line, always have. It is in my top ten.

My all time favorite line from one of my all time favorite movies is from Hunt for Red October. Jack Ryan has asked the sub captain to send a signal so that the Red October will know that they are behind them. That way if he chooses to defect he can contact them. The Dallas sub captian allows his sub to cavitate just long enough that the Red October will hear him. He turns to Jack Ryan and says, "Ok Dr. Ryan, we just unzipped our fly. Now if that son of a bitch so much as twitches I'm going to blow him to Kingdom Come."
