Filler: Movie Quotes

Too busy to come up with actual content, so instead I'm going to throw a bunch of movie quotes out here. Feel free to play "spot the source" in comments. Or, better yet, feel free to toss out some of your own favorite lines. Movies, television, books... it's all good.
"Ah, the old Disco Room. Just as I left it."

"That's not it! Where did she get that rubbish? It doesn't even start with 'I wish!'"

"Oh, the reason I called... Could you find out who else is in town? I've made two spooks and a ghoul already, so if they've double-booked the job, and/or they're going to kill me, I'd like to know. If you could find that out, that'd be great."

"Another Great Conjunction coming up! Anything could happen! Whole WORLD might burn up! End of Aughra! Hm"

"Whoa, lady, I only speak two languages, English and bad English."

"I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

"Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that two stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to hell with you!"

"Ray. If someone asks if you are a god, you say, 'Yes!'"

"Don't you snap at me, unless you want an angry Solid Gold dancer on your hands, Ira."


  1. two of my favorite quotes..

    "I know kung fu"

    "those that I fight I do not hate, those that I guard I do not love..."

    The last quote and the lyrics from "Civil War" had a profound affect on my feelings about war.

  2. The second one is Labyrinth. The fourth-to-last is Aliens, the third-to-last is Conan the Barbarian, and the second-to-last is Ghostbusters.

    Since I had occasion to quote this just yesterday: "Sometimes when you win, you lose."

    And of course: "I want my father back, you son of a bitch."

  3. The win/lose quote sounds like What Dreams May Come, and naturally "I want my father back" is the ever-quotable Princess Bride. Very nice!


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
