I love quotes from great scientists, philosophers and even politicians because they give you a little insight into the mind of those people. Literature aside for a second I have to admit many of my favorite quotes are from movies. Many times when my wife and I talk to each other when we are with other people we get strange looks because we have almost created a mini-language based on movie references. There are a few films like “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” that we can probably quote from beginning to end. Here are a few great scenes with those famous quote from movies you might remember as well. Feel free to add any of you favorite quotes from movies, television, or any other source for that matter.

The quotes in the battle between King Arthur and the black night in Monty Python and the Holy Grail are just too classic to pass up in a discussion of movie quotes.

Uncle Ruckus from Boondocks.  (if you are easily offended you might not want to watch this compilation).

The famous “Far better place…” quote from a Tale of Two Cities with Ronald Coleman (I know I’m cheating because it’s about my favorite quote in literature as well because it demonstrates the height of human unselfishness in a selfish world).

“I love the smell of napalm in the morning” from Apocalypse Now.  The problem was victory in Vietnam was just as elusive and short lived as that smell.

The most damaging mentality that still prevails in our culture.   The “greed is good” speech from Gordon Gekko in the film Wall Street.

    One of my favorite is from Top Gun Stinger to Maverick

    Maverick, you just did an incredibly brave thing. What you should have done was land your plane! You don’t own that plane, the tax payers do! Son, your ego is writing checks your body can’t cash. You’ve been busted, you lost your qualifications
    -Stinger

    OR

    The Breakfast Club. John Bender
    Hey, how come Andrew gets to get up? If he gets up . . . we’ll all get up . . . it’ll be anarchy!

    One last quote before I turn in from the show where the character from my Gravatar originated, Shin Chan. There is one character on Shin Chan that is a Republican called Georgie Prescott III and he succinctly defined the Republican strategy in one quote.

    “Tell them it will trickle down and talk about abortion”.

  5. abby4ever says:

    One of my favorite quotes from a film is from Jaws, when Roy Scheider, after getting his first real look at the monstrous thing, turns around and says to Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss:

    “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

    • KQuark says:

      That is a classic and I quote find ways to quote it often.

      • abby4ever says:

        Another one I like that will be even less unique, is that famous one from ‘Gone With The Wind’, where at the end Rhett says to Scarlett: “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

        I picure McCain and Palin, parting after their loss, and her saying to him: “But where will I go, what will I do?” or something like that, the same as Scarlett said to Rhett. And then McCain…who in my view used Palin unmercilessly to win the election..says he doesn’t give a damn.

        That might be unfair to him; for all I know he was torn asunder about what she went through, and they parted clinging to each other and crying their eyes out.

        • KQuark says:

          McCain was never one to be able to hide how he felt about someone as evidenced with the debates. I can’t imagine that he even talked to Palin after long. But picking her had to be the worst mistake in American political history.

      • abby4ever says:

        Me too. I used it a couple of times during the primaries when the attacks from the right on Obama got to be a bit vicious.

  9. KQuark says:

    Any Father Ted fans out there?

    “Down with this sort of thing” “Drink! Feck! Girls!”


    This is one of the best conniptions of all time.


    • bitohistory says:

      KQ, were/are those on PBS there? That is the thing about both PBS and NPR, different stations play different things.

      • javaz says:

        You can check out Fr. Ted from the library.
        The library has an extensive collection of foreign films and foreign television shows/series.
        Hey, if the AJ library has them, so should the Tuscon library!

      • KQuark says:

        They actually played the whole Father Ted series on BBC America but unfortunately BBC America is playing these BS reality shows and shows that try to mimic American TV these days.

        We liked the series so much that we eventually bought it on DVD.

        Black Books and IT Crowd are two other great series done by the Irish comedic writer who created Father Ted. IT Crowd was on IFC and Black Books was on BBC America.

    • Chernynkaya says:

      Never saw those! PLAY THE FUCKING NOTE! will be our new phrase, KQ. Thanks!

    Remember “The Goodies”?


  11. bitohistory says:

    I don’t understand! For a bunch of liberal, commie, pinkos-with “no sense of humor”-Flush Limpbrain says, “you people” have a lot of fun on the weekend nights. When do you find time to take over the country?

  12. javaz says:

    Here’s another one of my favorites, and seriously, how handsome is this guy?

    Horatio Hornblower and yes, we own the entire series --


    And then there’s this Brit comedy that I love --


  13. Chernynkaya says:

    My first “adult” movie:


    Remember Sandra Dee??

    • javaz says:

      Of course I remember Sandra Dee.
      Wasn’t she the original Gidget in the movies or was it Tammy.
      I loved them Tammy movies.

      When you said first adult movie, I thought you meant porn!
      LMAO
      I’ve never gone to an actual theater to see porn, LMAO, here’s where 67 countries or whatever view this post, but I actually asked a boyfriend to take me to a porn movie at a drive-in in upper Michigan all them years ago.
      They showed porn at the drive-in in the UP for the hunters.
      LMAO
      I’m embarrassed writing this, but I wanted to see a porn film to understand what was the deal with that.
      And seriously, what is the deal with that?
      It had some piano music to it, and not a whole lot of dialog, but the funniest scene in the movie that I remember was some girls in sexy underwear ordered a pizza, and for whatever reason, there was a toilet in the middle of their living room.
      And when the girls had to pee, LMAO, my gosh, a man’s face came up from the toilet to lick their naughty bits.
      The plot!
      There was no plot, and let me tell you, that after that movie, I never understood the allure.
      LMAO
      I remember when that boyfriend took me to that movie, and I had to pee, I made us leave because there was no way I’d leave the car in the dead of winter for fear someone might recognize me, but heaven only knows what would be lurking inside that toilet!!!
      LMAO

      Oh gosh.
      I had girlfriends that actually went to the theater and saw Deep Throat, and they said it actually had a plot.
      Oh man.

      and on that embarrassing note and revealing something that I shouldn’t have most likely, I am logging off and going to bed.
      LMAO

      • bitohistory says:

        Good night, j’avaz. Oh, my Image of you has forever been tarnished (except you at least have been to the UP) 😆 .

      • kesmarn says:

        Are you and the mister heading into the bedroom now because you’re embarrassed? Or tired? Or……….?

        You put that digital video camera down right now, young lady.

      • Chernynkaya says:

        Javez, you are too funny!!! Why would you be embarrassed? I should have added: Remember when porn was in actual theaters?!

        • bitohistory says:

          Cher, not really porn, but it was line after line of adult humor. Did you see “Flesh Gordon”?

          • Chernynkaya says:

            Hiya, Bito! No, missed that one. Worth renting?

            • bitohistory says:

              Cher, it may seem dated. It was pretty “Korney” but is was ROFLAO 35+ years ago when we where passing “those Funny Cigarettes” around. What was the movie about how pot made the bobbysoxers go crazy and listen to jazz?
              Oh! just remembered “Reefer Madness”!!!

            • Chernynkaya says:

              You mean this?


  14. javaz says:

    Time for trivia, for all us old-timers --

    What was the name of the series starring Shirley Booth?

    What was the name of the series starring Anne Francis?

    (no fair using google, and first person to answer correctly wins a jar of salsa!)
