    No "Remember, remember, the Fifth of November..."?

    The opening line to Citizen Kane led to one of the great lines my wife has faced since her college days. In the mid-70's, rushing across campus at Mizzou to get the screening on time, my wife said to her friends, "Hurry, the first 5 minutes are the most important." I wasn't even there, but we say that all of time time to her. For her 40th birthday, her best friend from college gave her a copy of Citizen Kane.

    my favorite from casino - "When you love someone, you've gotta trust them. There's no other way. You've got to give them the key to everything that's yours. Otherwise, what's the point?"

    I'm not going to look, but I guarentee this one is in there:

    "As far back as I can remember, all I've ever wanted to be was a gangster".
    "But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."

    "Call me Ishmael."

    Or maybe I'm thinking of something else.

    That is my favorite opening in all of movies. The atmosphere of how it opened up and him witnessing a murder/the crazieness of it all was directed well.

    My favorite was always "Roar" pause "Roar", but it was used in way too many movies.

    That list was super lame. First one I thought of was 'What can you say about a 25 year girl old that died"?

    Not an "opening line", but an "opening scene"...

    My favorite opening scene is from Amistad. Djimon Hounsou's (yes, I had to look up the spelling) rythmic breathing, along with the close-up not identifying what was really going on, other than the desperate sounds of scraping...to be coupled with the contrasts of the darkness and the reflections of light. Spielberg created a masterpiece of an opening scene in my opinion.

    Sounds like the beginning of every Law and Order episode.
