    "Get Shorty" has so much good dialogue (if you don't mind obscenities). Here's one of my favorite exchanges:

    “- Chili Palmer: How did you get in here?" (in his hotel room)
    - Ray Bones: It was easy. I told 'em I was you, I acted real stupid and they believed me.”
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    oo-oo! I just thought of another one from The Outlaw Josey Wales (Clint Eastwood):

    Sidekick: I wish we had time to bury them fellas.
    Josey Wales: To hell with them fellas. Buzzards gotta eat, same as the worms.

    I actually have this t-shirt. LOL.
    That's a classic, happystuff! I see there are a few Princess Bride quotes here.

    Speaking of classics, I remember just breaking down and sobbing in my seat in the movies in 1967 at the end of Camelot, when King Arthur dubs knighthood on the boy who wants to fight for King Arthur's values, as Camelot is crumbling. King Arthur realizes that while his vision is gone temporarily, it's not really dead because the vision lives in this boy who can carry on the dream. So this line made me weep:

    King Pellinore : Who is that, Arthur?
    King Arthur : One of what we all are, Pelly. Less than a drop in the great, blue motion of the sunlit sea. But it seems that some of the drops sparkle, Pelly. Some of them do sparkle! Run, boy! Run, boy!

    HEY, just what you see pal. Terminator

    Have you ever had the dream, where you're dressed in sun god robes, with thousands of naked women, throwing little pickles at you? No, just me then? Real Genius

    Of course several things from Monty Python, and some of them are songs (always look on the bright side of life, every sperm is sacred). I would say at one point most of my friends could recite all their movies.

    I love RHPS. I have seen is over 225+/- times in the movie houses throughout the years ( starting in 1977)

    My favorite line from “Casablanca”:

    “I like to think you killed a man. It’s the romantic in me”.

    Claude Rains got all the best lines in that movie.

    There is one that has come up a LOT for me lately. In fact it could almost be the theme of my life. However I am not sure if I could post it here.... Allen, Catherine, I ask Is it safe? Marathon man
