for me, i was on an airplane enroute to Hawaii when Eli Wallach said that. I spilled off my seat and onto the isle, laughing my headoff.

in the case of a book, it had to be Catch-22 when Yosarian was being court marshalled.

Didn't you say that ...

I never said that .... What I said was....

We're not interested in what you said! We're only interested in what you didn't say!

I've always never said...

so when was the last time you laughed at a line?
Catch-22 is one of my favorite books! It's definitely the most enjoyable one I have ever read. I could probably pull at least 100 quotes out of that book. Maybe later.

"There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle."

From the Boondock Saints:

Conner MacManus: How far are we going to take this?
Il Duce: The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

And who can forget this gem from the Princess Bride?
Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.



And on a side note, looks like they'll be coming out with Boondock II - All Saints Day in the near future.. yippee!

...to crush your enemies, see them driven before
you, and hear the lamentations of the women.

This one's my absolute favorite line of all time. It's from some old Robert Duvall film (can anyone help me with the title?) about a cowboy who's really quite a stud and has many lovers, but the one woman he really wants to marry runs off with someone else, a real lowlife. The cowboy is devastated. So his father, a grizzled old rancher, sits him down and looks at him and says.....

"Son.... a woman's love is like the morning dew. It's jes' as likely to settle on a horse turd as on a rose."

Ain't it the truth.

Not to be too PC, but couldn't the same be said about the cowpoke, who'd had the opportunity to choose several other women but for whatever reason picked the one who would reject him ultimately? I've done that countless times myself and I think the answer comes down to this: we desire what we must pursue. This isn't limited to sex and romance; it seems to drive the headphone purchases of many on this board.

standard operating procedure...[do they know this yet?]...no! no, of course not...we find it's always better to fire people on a friday...studies have statistically shown that there's less chance of an incident if you do it at the end of the week...


when i make a mistake, i have eight different people coming by to tell me about it...that's my only real motivation is not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job...but you know bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired...


well, well look, i already told you...i deal with the god damn customers so the engineers don't have to...i have people skills, i am good at dealing with people...can't you understand that?...what the hell is wrong with you people?...


and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then i'll set the building on fire...

Scrypt,

You're right of course, but the point isn't to analyze these things but rather to appreciate their deep literary value.

It's the sort of line that made me say "damn, I wish I had said that."

If your quote had been *unmemorable*, I'd never have had the impulse to explore its various antitheses. Anything worth saying inspires a paradoxical response -- just ask an agnostic.

One of my faves too--but I think it was from Terminator, not Terminator 2.

Definitely from Terminator 2: "Hasta la vista, baby!"
