When a naked man is chasing a woman through an alley with a butcher's knife and a hard-on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross!

Just about any Coen brothers film, Miller's Crossing or The Big Lebowski, watch 5 minutes of either one and you can hear some of the best dialogue ever.

Somebody better go back and get a sh$*-load of dimes!

No! A REAL song...you know...like De Camptown Races.

You almost lost a $400 handcart.

Mongo straight.

Mongo only pawn in game of life.

What in the wide, wide world of sports is going on here?

You said "rape" twice.
I like "rape."

The hard part was thinking up the Candygram. And I won't even get credit for it.

...and the little bas@#$% shot me in the a$$.

------------

It's twue! It's twue!

Would you like a roll in ze hay?

Werewolf?
There wolf.

Put. The Candle. BACK.

What hump?

Soitently...you take the blond, I'll take the one in turban.

But, what did you ever get from him?....OOO....ooof....Oh sweet mystery of life at last I found you......

No tongues!

Come back! I was about to make espresso.

There are just waaaay too many to go on without just writing the entire scripts.

Ok, this movie will never be classic, but I probably quote it more than any other movie, so here's some of my favorite bits of dialogue from the very underrated Dude, Where's My Car:

Quote:
And then?
No "and then"!
And then?
I refuse to play your Chinese food mind games!
And then?
And then I'm gonna come back there and put my foot in your a** if you say "and then" again!

[pause]
And then and then and then!

[much thrashing of chinese food takeout intercom ensues]

Quote:
We will now use the power of the Continuum Transfunctioner to banish you to Hoboken, New Jersey.

I don't know why I find this funny, but I use it everytime I see a strange animal.
Quote:
**turns around and is face to face with an ostrich**

Dude, it's a llama.

Quote:
Is that a barn?
Is it red?
No
Then it isn't a barn

Quote:
Dude! You got a tattoo!
So do you, dude! Dude, what does my tattoo say?
"Sweet!" What about mine?
"Dude!" What does mine say?
"Sweet!" What about mine?
"Dude!" What does mine say?
"Sweet!" What about mine?

[later]

[angry] "Dude!" What does mine say?
[screaming] "Sweet!"

From: Mississipi Hare:

Bugs Bunny: Eh, what's cooking, Doc?

Yosemite Sam: I seem to be in a terrible quandary, suh. Could you change a ten spot, suh? I'd Prefer a Profusion of Pennies.

Bugs Bunny: [examines the bill] Are you sure it's a good one? Lots of counterfeits around, you know. Ah, well. You gotta trust somebody. Let's see now. [slowly counts out the change] A dollar-ten... a dollar-twenty... a dollar-twenty-one...

Yosemite Sam: [grabbing the penny] Thank you, suh. Keep the change!

Well, it's a TV show but Deadwood has some fine dialogue.

SO many...I'll try to keep it short..... one or two from my favorite movies. Do I have to pick one favorite? I guess my favorites are the ones that in one line you can imagine/remember the entire scene.

I give you these 15...(crash!)...TEN Commandments!

He hates these cans! Stay away from the cans!

I don't need anything except this.
And that's it and that's the only thing I need, is this. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray. And this paddle game, the ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need. And this remote control. The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control and the paddle ball. And this lamp. The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp and that's all I need. And that's all I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one - I need this. The paddle game, and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches, for sure. And this. And that's all I need. The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair.

He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy!

You are ALL individuals.
Not me.

It's just a flesh wound.

Oh, let me have just a little bit of peril?

I don't want my brother coming out of that toilet with just his D--- in his hands, alright?

But I didn't know until this day that it was Barzini all along.


I saw the Bugs Bunny ones and now THAT gets me started....guess I CAN'T keep it short.

What a maroon!

Of course you know, this means war!

I killed the wabbit!

I shoulda' made a left toin at Albequerque.

Any Pink Panther movie with Peter Sellers, lines like:

Its a bomb.
What kind of bomb?
THE EXPLODING KIND!

or, after he destroys a piano by smashing it with a metal ball and chain stuck on his hand:
Thats a precious Steinway.
NOT ANYMORE!

How about from Star Wars, as Darth Vader says:
Luke, I AM your father.
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

From Spaceballs:
Whats the matter Colenol Sanders, chicken?

From Airplane:
Surely you cant mean that.
Yes I do, and dont call me Shirley!

And the greatest comedy dialogue of all, the entire Abbott & Costello WHO'S ON FIRST routine.

never take life seriously
