OK, I'm bored.

Soooo, how about a new game. You post a quote or some dialogue from a movie scene, and we guess what movie and who said it. Then the winner posts another one. And so on, and so on, until I'm not bored anymore or we reach the end of the internet, whichever comes first.

I'll start with a very easy one.

"Marie, now just stay calm. Stay calm. Don't look down, don't look down! Look up! Just keep your eyes up and keep them that way, o.k.! Waiter there are snails on her plate. Now get them out of here before she sees them! Look away, just look away, keep your eyes that way! You would think that in a fancy restaurant at these prices you could keep the snails off the food! There are so many snails there you can't even see the food! Now take those away and bring us those melted cheese sandwich appetizers you talked me out of!"

Right movie, wrong actor. "Any man loud talkin' spends a night in the box" was part of the eloquent speech given by Carr the floorwalker.

Finally, Roberts decided something. He said, 'Alright Wesley, I've never had a valet, you can try if you'd like. I'll most likely kill you in the morning.' For three years he said that. 'Good night Wesley, good work, sleep well, I'll most likely kill you in the morning.' It was a fine time for me - I was learning to fence, fight, anything anyone would teach me. Roberts and I eventually became friends. And then it happened."

Just a couple quality quotes that don't have any profanity ... as the vast majority of dialogue throughout the movie does have plenty of it. Someone once told me they drop the F-Bomb over 250 times through the entire movie, and I can certainly believe it.

Do they have "Star Search" in Tibet? Probably not. Probably got "Food Search."

Sorry to hijack the thread, but I could never get any of these you guys have put here....I just wanted to sneak in my favorite scene from "Planes, Trains, and Automobikes." I laugh everytime I read this....

Del: God, you're an ungrateful jack*ss. Well, go ahead, sleep in the lobby, see if I care! I hope you wait up so stiff you can't even move!

Neal: You're no saint. You got a free cab, you got a free room--and someone'll listen to your boring stories! Didn't you notice on the plane when you started talking, eventually I started reading the vomit bag? Didn't that give you some sort of clue, like maybe this guy is not enjoying it? Y'know, not everything is an anecdote, you have to discriminate! You choose things are funny or mildly amusing! You're a miracle! Your stories have none of that! They're not even amusing accidentally! "Honey, I'd like you to meet Del Griffith, he's got some amusing anecdotes for ya! And, oh, here's a gun so you can blow your brains out, you'll thank me for it!

I could tolerate any insurance seminar. For days, I could sit there, and listen to them go on and on with a big smile on my face! And they'd say, how can you stand it? And I'd say, because I've been with Del Griffith, I can take anything! Y'know what they'd say, they'd say, "I know what you mean, shower curtain ring guy...whoa!"
It's like going on a date with a Chatty-Kathy doll. I expect you to have a string on your chest that you pull out and have to snap back. Except I wouldn't pull it out and snap it back, you would! [imitating] Dyah dyah dyah dyah! And, you know, when you're telling these little stories, here's a good idea: have a point. It makes it makes it so much more interesting for the listener!

[Long pause. Neal sighs, curses quietly and continues to pack his stuff from the motel room. Del, visibly hurt by this tirade, starts slowly.]

Del: You want to hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right: I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold, hard cynic like you. But I don't like to hurt people's feelings. You think what you want about me, I'm not changing. I...I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. Because I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.

Alright, here is one to get the thread going again:

Terry: You know, I've seen you a lot of times before. Remember parochial school out on Pulaski Street? Seven, eight years ago? Your hair, you had your hair, uh...
Edie: In braids.
Terry: Looked like a hunk of rope. And you had wires on your teeth and glasses, everything. I mean, you was really a mess.
Edie: I can get home all right now, thanks. (She removes the glove from his hand.)
Terry: Now listen. Don't get sore. I was just kiddin' ya a little bit. I just needed to tell ya a joke. You grew up very nice.
Edie: Thanks.
Terry: You don't, you don't remember me, do ya?
Edie: I remembered you the first moment I saw you.
Terry: By the nose, huh? (She smiles at him) Well, some people just got faces that stick in your mind.
Edie: I remember you were in trouble all the time.
Terry: Now you got me. Boy, the way those Sisters used to whack me, I don't know what. They thought they was gonna beat an education into me, but I foxed 'em.
Edie: Maybe they just didn't know how to handle you.
Terry: How would you have done it?
Edie: With a little more patience and kindness. That's what makes people mean and difficult. People don't care enough about them.
Terry: Ah, what are you kiddin' me?

My Favorite Year...Peter O'Toole's character...I looked this up, so I feel as though I'm cheating...but I want to move the thread along...

Maybe the greatest line in the history of movies. O'Toole is so cool.

That's not it. You have to go back a few years. Think of a couple of married, drinking sleuths.

He's got so many good lines in that movie. It's a really underrated movie.
