I love the smell of napalm in the morning
You talkin’ to me
Gooooood Mornnnninng Vietnam
I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore
E.T. phone home.

They're here
Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown
You can't handle the truth

Open the pod bay doors, HAL
I am serious... and don't call me Shirley

Stella! Hey, Stella!
Snap out of it!
There's no crying in baseball!

I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!
A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Houston, we have a problem.
I see dead people.
I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too!

Take your stinking paws off me, 
you damned dirty ape!

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.

Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. 
A former greenskeeper, now, 
about to become the Masters champion. 
It looks like a mirac...
It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!
Mama always said life was like 
a box of chocolates. 
You never know what you're gonna get.

I'll have what she's having.

You're gonna need a bigger boat.

Go ahead make my day.

I didn't know what the heck you were doing at first. Then I realized they were lines from movies. I HATE that Al Pacino phrase though. Makes me crazy!

lisleman said...

you know it's a phrase used in the military, most army.
I really like "Scent of a Woman".  I need to check if I posted my funny story about it.

Excellent! I am the worst at remembering movie lines.

lisleman said...

I can't claim to remember them.  The list of best movie lines (AFI  really helps.

Antares said...

This is great. I knew where all this memorable lines were from. What can I say? Cinephile.
Curious, I can't remember any good lines from more recent movies.

unknownmami said...

Of all the blog posts, in all the blogs, in all the internet, I read into yours.

lisleman said...

Sorry but that went over my head or somewhere.  What are you talking about, "read into"?  A play on a movie quote?

lisleman said...

Maybe the recent movie lines have not ripen yet?
I used a list of them so I can not claim to have known all of them.  very good and thanks

unknownmami said...

Play on Casablanca.

lisleman said...

duh - I even used that one too.  Maybe it's getting too late.  Thanks for explaining.  Ok it's late, here's a dumb question - beside your former governor/actor terminator quote is there any other Spanish/Latino language movie quote that is popular?

unknownmami said...

If it was popular you'd probably know it.

Where all the white women at?!

Such a blazing comment Pearl.

Wow - it is amazing how easily I can associate many of those lines with the matching movie? The weird thing is that I really do not see a lot of movies but I guess the lines are repeated so often that somehow I pick up on them. Very interesting post! W.C.C.
