Favourite Movie Line

Okay, another pointless—yet compelling—Foo thread.

What's your favourite movie line? And please, no big scenes, no long dialogue, let's keep it moving.

Mine: from Blade Runner

Roy (to genitic engineer): If only you could see what I've seen with your eyes.

I'm thinking "Breaking Away" I watched it again lastnight.

Working Girl: Sigoerny Weaver(sp) as Kathryn Parker to Tess played by Melanie Griffith:
I am after all....Me.
Ghostbusters: Ray Stanz "And the flowers are still standing!" & "Mother Puss Bucket"
Jaws: Chief Brodie to Quint " Your gonna need a bigger boat"
Almost every line from the Princess Bride: "Have fun storming the castle" and others to many to mention.

I'm gonna have to watch "Sitting Pretty" so I quote it correctly.

I scraped by with baby-sitting gigs and odd jobs - mostly the jobs we call blow.

The road is my home. In reflecting upon the people whom I have come upon in my travels, I cannot help but think of the people who have come upon me.

Actually they were both Pete Venkman.

From the same character: "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Nice shootin' Tex!"

"Sitting Pretty" 1948
:Clifton Webb, Maureen O'Hara and Robert Young

Harry King: I'm going out and get good and drunk!
Lynn Belvedere: Intoxication is a form of escape, usually sought by the mentally immature.

Harry King:I have half a mind to punch you right in the nose, just on general principles.
Lynn Belvedere: It takes half a mind to resort to such a measure.

Harry King: Did you tell my kids I was a moron?
Lynn Belvedere:I most assuredly did not, But Mr. King if you wish it kept a secret, you should not act like one.

Also, while, it's not my all-time favourite line, it seems to be popping up in my head a lot lately. Also, the movie was craptastic but I do love the quote.

There are plenty more that I like but those seem to be the ones currently stuck in my head.
