Hope is a dangerous thing.
The Shawshank Redemption
It can't rain all the time.
This isn't hell, but you can see it from here.
Don't give me attitude, sir. See you assume that I won't shoot your sorry ass. And everyone knows when you make an assumption, you make an ass out of 'u' and 'umption'.
Samuel L. Jackson
It's not fucking fair.
Are you stupid or did you just take lessons?
I don't need a reason to kill myself, I need a reason not to.
Single White Female
Life is just a dream on the way to death.
I believe there's a place where the restless souls wander, burdened by the weight of their own sadness. They wait for a chance to set the wrong things right. Only then can they be reunited with the ones they love. Sometimes, a crow shows them the way; because sometimes, love is stronger than death.
The Crow, City of Angels
Memories are meant to fade, Lenny. They're designed that way for a reason.
Life is just a random lottery of tragedies and narrow escapes.
Surrender the fantasy.
Forever turned out to be too long.
Julia Ormond (Susannah Finncannon)
Some mysteries are meant to be unsolved.
Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully)
Is it true there's no such thing as a stupid questions?
You buy the donut, you buy the hole.
The Muppets Tonight
When you want the ultimate, you've got to pay the ultimate price.
Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true.
Patrick Swayze (Brody)
Why is it that the people who need the most help, won't take it?
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time - like tears in rain. Time to die.
Have you ever seen fire in zero gravity? It's beautiful. It's like liquid, it slides over everything...
We're going to Disneyland.
John Malkovich (Cyrus the Virus)
Crazy, huh? Now you're talking semantics. What if I told you crazy was working 50 hours a week for 50 years, at the end of which you're told to piss off. End up in a nursing home, hoping to die before suffering the indignity of not making it to the toilet on time. Wouldn't you say that is insane?
How long is a Swatch minute?
Good morning. In less than an hour, aircrafts from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind - the word should hold new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it's fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will be once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyrrany, oppression or persecution. But from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday. For today is the day the world declare in one voice 'We will not go quietly into the night! We're not going to vanish without a fight. We're going to live on. We're going to survive. Today we celebrate our Independence Day!
Well here's a synonym for sex - Fuck off!
Kramer goes to a fantasy camp. His whole life is a fantasy camp. People should plunk down $2000 to live like him for a week. Do nothing, fall ass-backwards into money, mooch food off your neighbors, and have sex without dating. THAT'S a fantasy camp.
Jason Alexander (George Costanza)
I'm a magical being. Take off your bra.

I'm gonna kill you until you die from it!

Hey Tim, have you ever tried yoga?
Tim Allen (Tim Taylor)
Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
Jack Nicholson (The Joker)
If knowledge is power, then a god am I.
Control is an illusion, you infantile egomaniac. Nobody knows what's gonna happen next: not on a freeway, not in an airplane, not inside our own bodies and certainly not on a racetrack with 40 other infantile egomaniacs.
Days of Thunder
How do you explain school to a higher intelligence?
No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is not try.
When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not.
What I want out of each and every one of you is a hard target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse, and doghouse in that area.
Tommy Lee Jones
Movies don't create psychos. Movies just make psychos more creative.
I know now why you cry. But it's something I can never do.
Your ego is writing cheques your body can't cash.
No, you relax. You're the dead guy.
This quarter was my wish, and it didn't come true. So I'm taking it back. I'm taking them all back.
Sallah, I said NO camels! That's FIVE camels; can't you count?
Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones)
Yeah, but when the Pirates of the Carribean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists.
You know the difference between you and me? I make this look good.
DOC SCURLOCK: You son of a bitch! You're starting to believe what they're writing about you, aren't you? Let me tell you what you really are. You rode a 14 year old boy straight to his grave, and the rest of us straight to hell... straight to hell! William H. Bonney, you are not a God!
WILLIAM H BONNEY: Why don't you pull the trigger and find out?
Young Guns 2

Jim Carrey (Truman Burbank)
We accept the reality of the world with which we are presented.
Yip, yip, yip, yip, yip! Uh-huh! Uh-huh!
And they are real, and they are spectacular!
Pray to whom I might have him, pray to whom I now die, serve right and justice one last time, seek on last heart of evil, sell me one last light of pain, cut well, old friend, then farewell!
The Flight of Dragons
Each day at dawn they were up, running three to five miles. Then I kept abusing 'em continuously while they tried to learn what I was teaching them. Why? You can't know it unless you live it, and you can't portray it unless you know it. If you don't know it, it looks ridiculous...and I won't have that in any film I'm associated with. It's a dishonor to the real people who fought.
Marine Captain Dale Dye, trainer of the actors in
I can't do that, can you do that? Who ARE those guys?
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
You complete me.
All our young lives we search for someone to love, someone to make us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope, all the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, someone perfect is searching for us.
Fred Savage (Kevin Arnold)
GRACE: Listen Harry. A. J. is my choice. My choice and not yours.
HARRY: He's the only one your age practically, Grace. It's not a choice. It's a lack of options.
Bruce Willis and Liv Tyler
I address you tonight, not as the president of the United States, not as the leader of a country, but as a citizen of humanity. We are faced with the very gravest of challenges. The Bible calls this day Armageddon - the end of all things. And yet, for the first time in the history of the planet, a species has the technology to prevent its own extinction. All of you praying with us need to know that everything that can be done to prevent this disaster has been found and researched. The human thirst for excellence, knowledge, every step of the ladder of science, every adventurous reach into space, all of our conbined modern technologies and imaginations, even the wars that we've fought, have provided us with the tools to wage this terrible battle. Through all the chaos, through all the wrongs and discord, through all the pain and suffering, through all of our lives, there is one thing that may nurse our souls and elevate our species above its origin, and that is our courage. The dreams of this entire planet are focused tonight on those 14 brave souls travelling into the heavens. May we all, citizens all over, see this event through. Godspeed and good luck to you.
Wise men say forgiveness is divine, but never pay full price for late pizza.
We must kill them. We must incinerate them. Pig after pig, cow after cow, village after village, army after army. And they call me an assassin. What do you call it when the assassins accuse the assassin?
You have to have men who are moral... and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling... without passion... without judgement... without judgement. Because it's judgement that defeats us.
Figuring things out for yourself is the only freedom any one really has. Use that freedom. Make up your own mind.

Laurie Holden (Marita Covarrubias)
And why should the people listen to you?
Robin Hood: Men In Tights
But somewhere out there, something is watching us. There are alien forces acting in ways we can't perceive. Are we alone in the universe? Impossible when you consider the wonders that exist all around us. The voodoo priests of Haiti... the Tibetian numerologists of Appalachia... the unsolved mysteries of... "Unsolved Mysteries"!!! THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE!!!
Yeah and if your sister is your aunt and your mother marries your uncle, you'd be your own grandpa!
Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully)
Just as when we come into the world, when we die we are afraid of the unknown. But the fear is something from within us that has nothing to do with reality. Dying is just like being born - just a change.
The way the world underestimates me will be my greatest weapon.
Enemy General: Tomorrow our arrows will block out the sun!

How do you shoot the devil in the back? What if you miss?

You're gonna need a bigger boat.
For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I'm suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of couse, they say, every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I'm not leaving. Maybe I'm going home...
If I were the man I was five years ago, I'd take a flamethrower to this place!
My God, it's full of stars.

Full Metal Jacket
We've become bored with watching actors give us phony emotions. We're tired of pyrotechnics and special effects. While the world he inhabits is in some respects counterfeit, there's nothing fake about Truman himself. No scripts, no cue cards... It isn't always Shakespeare but it's genuine. It's a life.
Ed Harris (Christof)
Good Morning. Oh! And in case I don't see ya'! Good Afternoon, Good Evening, and Goodnight! Yeah... yeah...
Jim Carey (Truman Burbank)
You're afraid. That's why you can't leave. It's okay, Truman. I understand. I have been watching you your whole life. I was watching when you were born. I was watching when you took your first step. I watched you on your first day of school. heh heh. The episode when you lost your first tooth. heh heh heh. You can't leave, Truman. You belong here...With me. Talk to me. Say something. Hell, say something, goddamnit! You're on television! You're live to the whole world!
Ed Harris (Christof)
We are but visitors on this rock, hurling through time and space at sixty-six thousand miles an hour, tethered to a burning sphere in an unfathomable universe. This most of us take for granted while refusing to believe these forces have any more effect on us than a butterfly beating its wings halfway around the world. Or that two girls, born on the same date, the same time and place, might not find themselves the unfortunate focus of similar unseen forces. Converging like the planets themselves into burning pinpoints of cosmic energy, whose absolute gravity would threaten to swallow and consume everything in its path. Or maybe the answer lies even further from our grasp.
David Duchovny (Fox Mulder)
Ernest Hemmingway once wrote, "The world is a wonderful place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.
MULDER: Holeman. He wants dating advice.
Well, it seems to me that the best relationships... the ones that last, are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.

JESS: Marriages don't break up on account of infidelity. It's just a symptom that something else is wrong?
When Harry Met Sally
This place is like the army: the shark ethic prevails... eat the wounded. In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.
Hunter S. Thompson
She is not perfect. You are not perfect. The question is whether you are perfect for each other.
Good Will Hunting
The world you live in is just a sugar coated topping, there is another world, the real world.
FOX: People want leadership, Mr President. And in the absence of genuine leadership, they'll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They want leadership. They are so thirsty for it, they'll crawl through a desert toward a mirage and when they discover there's no water, they'll drink the sand.
PRESIDENT: People drink the sand not because they are thirsty. People drink the sand because they don't know the difference.

Now, I don´t want to be somewhere else anymore. Not waiting for anything new to happen. Not looking around the next corner nor the next hill. I´m here now. That's enough.
JACK PALANCE: Do you know what the secret of life is? One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and everything else don't mean shit.
ERIC: I want to sue somebody. Can you help me?
And I love you and I always have... only I didn't realize that it was love 'cause it was more than love and not just some stupid feeling in my stomach like everything else.

Alright, I'll blow that vending machine open, but if you don't get the president on the line, you'll have to answer the Coca Cola Company.
If you suffer your people to be ill educated and their manners corrupted from infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded, sire, but that you first make thieves and then punish them?
I wonder how it would be to know that this breath now was the last one you ever gonna draw?
I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse.
Everything ends badly... otherwise it wouldn't end.
Dear Mr. Vernon,
We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole saturday in detention for whatever it is we did wrong, but we think you're crazy for making us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us, in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out, is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question?
Sincerely Yours, The Breakfast Club.

You move you're dead.
And I say I'm dead, and I move.
How can I have remorse for people who are tryin to kill me?
In time, even sad endings will become happy. The sad ending is only because the author stops telling the story. But it still goes on. It's just untold.

If you're gonna work in a whorehouse, there's only one thing to be - the best whore.
I like these calm little moments before the storm. It reminds me of Beethoven. Can you hear it? It's like when you put your head to the grass and you can hear the growin' and you can hear the insects. Do you like Beethoven?
They were going to make me a Major for this, and I wasn't even in their fucking army. Everyone wanted me to do it, him most of all. I felt like he was already up there, waiting for me to take the pain away. Even the jungle wanted him dead, and that's who he really took his orders from anyway.
Romeo: Why'd you do it, Cup?
Roy: Because it was a defining moment. And when a defining moment comes along, you either define the moment, or the moment defines you.
Multiply that by infinity, and take it to the depths of forever... and still you will not have a glimpse of what I'm talking about.
