Favourite Quotable Films.

Recommended Posts

Guest Rebecca Quentin

Just thought I'd start a thread about peoples' favourite quotable films. I'd say one of my all-time favourite films that is packed with great quotes, is "Withnail & I". How could I not love a film that delivers lines such as "don't threaten me with a dead fish" and "we demand the finest wines known to humanity, and we want them here, and we want them now!".

Plus it launched Richard E Grant and Paul McGann's careers.

One of my all time favorite TV shows as a kid was the A-Team. They are about to have a movie come out, unfortunately with different actors as most the the original actors are now to old. The line I liked was (I love it when a plan comes together). That should go with most of what we do. We plan out our transition and if it comes together, we love it.

Love,

We have a consensus, Donna Jean, Carolyn Marie, Jean Davis and I decided that the number one most quotable movie of all time is "Airplane" with "Young Frankenstein" and "Blazing Saddles" right behind.

You can just imagine what the conversation was like.

"And don't call me Shirley!"

Star Trek

Excuse me… Excuse me. I’d just like to ask a question… What does God need with a starship?

-James Kirk, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Spock: Ahh, Mr. Scott, I understand you’re having difficulty with the warp drive. How much time do you require for repair?

Scotty: There’s nothing wrong with the bloody thing!

Spock: Mr. Scott, if we return to space dock, the assassins will surely find a way to dispose of their incriminating footwear, and we will never see the captain, or Dr. McCoy, alive again.

Scotty: Could take weeks, sir!

-Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

How we deal with death is at least as important as how we deal with life.

-James Kirk, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Spock: This is the new brig, Captain. It is escape-proof.

Kirk: How do you know?

Spock: The designers tested it using the most intelligent and resourceful person they could find. He failed to escape.

Kirk: This person didn't by any chance have pointed ears and an unerring capacity for getting his shipmates into trouble, did he?

Spock: He did have pointed ears.

-Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Believing oneself to be perfect is often the sign of a delusional mind.

-Data, to Borg Queen, Star Trek: First Contact

Someone is going to have to help me with the name of the movie. It's a quate i have used to lighten up some situations. In my best Jack Nicholson impersonation...."You want the truth. You can;t handle the truth!" The other one I like is from Beetlejuice, when he says, "Go ahead. Make my millenium."

Thanks Chloe for giving me the name of the movie. I was going crazy tryong to think of it. There is also another quote i like. Can't quote it exactely, but it's from the movie, Dances with wolves. When Kevin Costner's character state he wants to go west...to see it...before it is gone. Something I have always thought about. How great it would be, to see what this country looked like before technology etc. made it into something else.

Clint Eastwood movies are full of wonderful quotes.

One of my favorites is from "Unforgiven," when the Schofield Kid (Jamz Woolvett) tells William Munny (Eastwood) that the bad guys "had it coming."

Will Munny's reply: "We all got it coming, kid."

From the same movie, this exchange between Sheriff Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman) and Will Munny:

Little Bill: "You just shot an unarmed man."

Bill Munny: "He should have armed himself if he's gonna decorate his saloon with my friend."

Wonderful movie. Also, lets not forget to give credit to the great screenwriters down through the years. They never get remembered by the public, and

deserve as much credit as the actors who delivered the lines.

Another I like,

"I'll have what she's having" "When Harry Met Sally" The woman in the dinner played by Director Rob Reiner's mother after watching Sally (Meg Ryan not me!) faking fits of ecstasy - that should get past the word filter and stay PG-13. :rolleyes:

and

"Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death" "Auntie Mame!" by the same Character.

There are so many, but the ones that came to my mind for now are:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

-"I was thinking how nothing lasts, and what a shame that is"

-"Did you know I was struck by lightining seven times?" LOL

-"You never know what's coming for you"

-"It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you."

-"You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went. You could swear, curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go. "

Forest Gump

-"I'm not a smart man... but I know what love is."

-"You have to do the best with what God gave you."

-Lieutenant Taylor:"Have you found Jesus yet, Gump? "

Forest:"I didn't know I was supposed to be looking for him, sir. " LOL

-"Life's a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you're gonna get. " (I had to put this in...)

-"What's normal anyways?"

Cast Away

-"You never know what the tide will bring"

Uhhh... there are just sooo many... That's enough for now I think ^_^

"Oh, I like this one... One dog goes one way, the other dog goes the other way, and this guy's sayin', "Whadda ya want from me?'" (Goodfellas) (Everything else Joe Pesci says in that movie also works.)

"Another day to live through. Better get started." (The Last Man on Earth)

"Who is that?" "Wayne Gretzky? On steroids?" (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) (Wayne Gretzky on steroids is my automatic response to who is that.)

In the movie "I shot Andy Warhol", and I think Andy said it to Candy Darling (who is a transvestite from the 60's) in real life as well.

Andy- "Oh Candy, how often do you get your period?"

Candy- "Oh I get it every day Andy, that's just how women I am!"

      Made it back to the Ozarks finally! At my closest point to you I spent 2 hours stuck on the freeway in a traffic jam crossing the Hudson River. It was a long day! I got back to find my HVAC system not working, so I have to scramble before the cold weather sets in. Then get my studio set up and start work. Along the way, I'm trying to relearn to play the guitar. Meetings with doctors this week to see what my metabolism is up to, plus the oncologist to provide follow up support from my cancer surgery. Lots of things to do! Hugs and smiles to you all!

      Once upon a time. In a land far far away. I was an die hard home mechanic. I have vivid memorys of changing a clutch on a Vauxhall cavalier in the snow. Thats how dedicated i was. Taking an engine from an old ford, stripping it down to components and then putting it all back together again did not even phase me. Also saved me fortunes in Garage bills. Even before that I was a Motorbike fanatic and still hold a full bike licence. But havent been on one for about Twenty Five years. I wouldnt like to recall the amount of wrecked bikes i got my hands on and rebuilt from the wheels up.   As its been said. There is female mechanics. But honestly i have no interest in working on cars or indeed bikes anymore.   I still have a very keen interest in classic cars. When i say classic I mean Anything pre 1985.   But as far as working on them goes. I am physically not strong enough or have the tenacity to even want to do it anymore.   The Hormones took my strength, and wow did it take my physical grunt, and the wanting to do this anymore.  I can still impress my partner by seeing something on the road classic and being able to name it on site. But im just not intersted in what makes it tick. It also doesnt make it better that i was doing this in my prime and now i have waved that goodbye.   However. Now I enjoy fashion,  clothes and yes shoes to. Which is a bonus as i work in retail.  I wouldnt say its a hobbie as such but  really enjoy it.   In a way the hormones do alter your personality in that sense  in my opnion,. Well it did for me. I still have a wealth of male only knowledge so to speak. but the implimentation just isnt fourthcoming anymore.    With DIY I can still do things but as long as they not to physical. Such as hang wallpaper etc. I was also good at that. In fact i was good with my hands period and would be happy to attempt most things   In a way having that knowledge is a good thing. as if i have to take my car to the garage i play dumb but actually will know if they are trying to get one over on me.   I do not feel sad that it changed my outlook from what i knew. If anything its giving me the knowledge from another life as i see it. Practical knowledge is never a bad thing.

      .Trans is by no means a modern thing. Not by a long chalk. Especially Hinduism.   To Name a few.   Shikhandi: This warrior in the Kurukshetra war in most tellings of the Mahabharata was female at birth but changed gender later in life. Born Shikhandini, the girl in one version of the story was raised as a male by King Drupada, the girl's father. The king even had her married to the princess of Dasharna. Upon complaints from the new bride, Shikhandini fled into the forest and met a Yaksha and exchanged genders. Now taking the name Shikhandi, he remained a man until his death at the battle of Mahabharat.   Shiva and Parvati: The supreme god of Shaivism, Shiva has often been held as the ultimate embodiment of masculinity, but as far back as the Kushan era, there have also been depictions of Shiva in  an androgynous composite of Shiva and his wife, Parvoti. The form originated when Parvoti, desiring to share Shiva’s experiences, asked for their forms to literally be joined. “What is being said is that if the inner masculine and feminine meet, you are in a perpetual state of ecstasy,” explains Hindu scholar Sadhguru. Most often, the Ardhanarishvara is depicted with the female form of Parvoti on the left and the masculine attributes of Shiva on the right   Bahuchara Mata: Bahuchara Mata was traveling with her sisters and threatened by the marauder Bapiya. After she and her sisters self-immolated their own breasts, Bapiya was cursed with impotence until he began to dress an act as a Woman Today, the Hindu goddess is worshipped as the originator and patron of the hijras, trans and intersex Bangladeshis considered in the faith to be of a “third gender.”     Its actually awesome when you look these gods up. See what they got up to.     I just copied and pasted the meanings and there spellings online. Just google them. You will see for yourself.   Great Fun fact Josie

      In Arabic, Hijra means a pilgrimage, a journey.   Also, it’s the term used to describe transgender women in India. Perhaps it’s a loan word. Perhaps it’s not. But it’s fitting that the same idea is echoed today in the word transgender. The idea of crossing a boundary, making a journey. Being trans is a pilgrimage, it’s moving from one place to another. It used to be something seen as sacred by the ancient cultures of the world. In many ways it still is. Just my musings for today.
    • Josie Beth
      It’s sad because it’s someone who was a real person. Sure there was controversy about her and Dave chapelle but to his credit he bounced his jokes off of her before the controversy and she laughed at them the loudest so they pretty much blew it out of proportion. I think it says something about how Dave actually respected her input as a comedian. Maybe she was ostracized because she wasn’t playing into the politics? It certainly makes sense when her shows tended to be very small compared to other people. It goes to show how entertainment can literally be hard on the very people they claim to be supportive of. She was transgender but virtually blacklisted by the industry. Of course they didn’t openly boycott her shows but she didn’t have large audiences. There’s so many facets to people and making life an “either/or” political game is really damaging when everyone has faults or shortcomings. Comedy has suffered a lot because of political influence being so bloodthirsty lately, when it used to be all in good fun.    Virtue signaling is the term you are looking for, when someone says something to gain points for sounding correct. That’s the sadly artificial world we live in. It takes guts to stand out and be different. Which is why all this talk about being inclusive to diversity is intellectually dishonest when the political drive is to make everyone fit into the same thinking cap. That’s not how people work. That’s not how we have intellectual debate or actually work through conversation with ideas. That’s basically the same dirty word that the political end of entertainment says they are opposed to: fascism. Instead of allowing people to be different they are using a huge industry to dictate government and politics. Miriam websters definition is:    a centralized autocraticgovernment headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.    Only in this case the dictator is an ideal that is unrealistic. Just because it’s not declared officially doesn’t mean it’s not a driving force. Change comes from dialogue, not from any form of oppression. Maybe that’s a lesson here too.

      Hello Kai and thanks for the update.  I understand its hard around the house but it will pass when you are able to set out on your own.  It will happen.  Hang tough.  Soon enough you'll be able to connect with a gender therapist and from there you will have someone to speak with who understands and can help you one on one.  Until then, keep posting and sharing your thoughts.  Please don't let the anxiety get to you.   Jani

      I've come up on a year of going by he/him pronouns with my friend group at school. It doesn't seem like that long ago and its hard to think I have come this far already. I know a year is not that long but after questioning myself for over 2 1/2 years I feel like things are starting to make sense, I think. I feel ready to tell people, to come out and say I am still questioning but I would prefer to be called he/him. I want to try my name more and see if it is comfortable for me. I think I am getting a new job and they asked for my preferred name and gender. I wanted so badly to put down male, and my name that I'm trying but its so hard when my parents disagree with everything I do moving in that direction. I still live in the house with them and its so hard for me to do things when everything I try seems to make my mom upset. My mom basically breathed a sigh of relief when I said I wasn't going by a different name with my friends, this makes me upset because for some reason her feelings matter more to me then me being comfortable. I don't go by he/him in the house, even though my whole family knows about me question, because there is a fear that something will go wrong. That I am going to make people upset, I don't have many friends to begin with and I don't want to lose any people in my life. There is so much anxiety with coming out and I know that's part of transitioning but it feels like my social anxiety makes it all worse. I never correct people when they misgender me because I freeze up and continue on. I cant correct people to save my life and I don't pass enough to present as male, people will think of me weird and/or hate me before they know me. I know that's probably not true, but when you are so self critical of yourself you think everyone else in the world is the same to you.  I wanted to start gender therapy but the last time I asked my parents for that they got me a religious regular therapist who knows nothing about trans kids. I am scared to talk to them again and get a real gender therapist so I don't have to be so dam confused all the time. I don't have money to pay for one myself and my insurance doesn't cover it so I am stuck with my thoughts. I don't know, I guess I just needed to rant about my situation. It doesn't make things better but other people know.

      Hello EZ and welcome aboard.   I agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment.  So you're on T, to assist with some medical challenges you have.  No big deal.  I'm not sure why you need to tell your work mates about your medications.  I'm not sure your fellow firemen would care about any changes.  As to that you have hidden an aspect of your life, we all have pieces we keep private.     I don't know your levels (we don't allow that on this site) but if your concerned with the beard, etc, talk to your doctor to see if you can lower your dosage a bit.  Even as a test to determine how you feel.    I'm glad you found us and signed up. Cheers,  Jani

      I checked the news on that story and it's so sad what people say. All of this for a bad joke that I ear since I was 5. A suicide is incredibly sad but the fact that it's politiced and used is even more sad... I hate that everything transgender always somehow, someway end up on that stupid internet thing where people make points for fake outrage... oh wait!? ok I will shut up now
    • Josie Beth
      I just learned about it today because I’m subscribed to a friend of hers. It’s really hitting home because she was in my age group and also a late transitioner.   I wonder why. I know that might be impossible to figure out. Just knowing how she was as a person and how much she tried to make others laugh it is a shock. But many times we don’t know what is going on with people even if they seem happy.    I can speculate, maybe she was in a downward spiral because she was not really finding companionship. Maybe she was frustrated because she wanted to bring happiness and not many people appreciated it. There’s so many potential reasons that she touched on in a joking way. I guess the takeaway is just to not be afraid to show someone what’s really going on inside. But even then it may not be enough? It’s difficult to confront myself with the same questions.
