100 Greatest Movie Quotes

Stephen King has become a columnist for "Entertainment Weekly" magazine. Back in June he asked readers to send in their favorite movie quotes for a future column. Since he received such an overwhelming reponse, it became a huge article in this week's issue.

What does this have to do with Indy, you ask? I'll tell you. It seems that a line from "Raiders" was sent in and chosen by Mr. King as one of his favorites:

"It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage."

Surprisingly, the most requested quotes came from "The Princess Bride." The number one quote was, "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Needless to say, it was a pleasant surprise to see Indy get his due, with a line that really captures the spirit of the films. Look for that issue with Joaquin Phoenix on the cover. (There's a great article on 'The Village' in there)

There are so many good quotes out there. I can't wait to read the article to see what the magazine determines noteworthy about any one particular quote.

Seems "Trust Me" would better capture the character of Indiana Jones.

I am assuming that Stevie explains himself....yes?

If memory serves... King's original article had to do with favorite movie lines that he and his family used in day to day conversation. His one criteria was that couldn't be "punch lines" (his term, not mine) like "Hasta la vista, baby" or "I'm your worst nightmare." The lines were not supposed to be the perfect embodiments of classic films, or even the most famous lines. Just most used in conversation in way that references the film.

Some of mine:
1. "Yeah... that'd be great." -Office Space
2. "Punch it!" - Empire Strikes Back
3. "You're a tomato!" or perhaps with a more phonetic spelling: "Yurra tumayda!" - (delivered in the Mick voice) - Rocky
4. "She's breakin' up, captain!" - Star Trek

This is great. I think King is on to something trying to get a hold of how great movie quotes work their ways into our daily lives. I have to get my hands on a copy of the King article. Here's some of my favorites.

(1) Backpacking with my brother and one of gets hungry (or is pulling food from a pack), we paraphrase this 'Murder By Death' passage:
Perrier: "Buns? You have buns? You bought buns and you didn't tell me? Where are they? Where are the buns?"
Marcel: "Oh! No, monsieur. The BONES in my body."
Perrier: "You should not speak with an accent when you know I am so hungry."

(2) Taunt after I or someone wipes out mountain biking:
Platoon/Sgt. Barnes: "Take the pain! Take it!"

(3) Dealing with a teething or otherwise sick and feverish baby:
'Apocalypse Now'/ Dennis Hopper's 'Zap 'em with the Siren!" line turns into: "Zap 'em with the Tylenol!"

(4) Making Plans with my wife:
Rob Roy: "I did not tell you my mind to have you flail me for it."
(we also jokingly quote the 'do you know how fine you are to me?' line from 'Rob Roy')

(5) . . . or dealing with my wife who's asking me questions on my way out the door:
'Indian Runner'/Frank Roberts (Viggo Mortensen): "Little sister, are you really asking me those questions or are you just stalling me."
(one of many quotes from this movie that work their way into out daily routine)

(6) My wife or I are lost, late or confronted with total chaos:
'Big Lebowski/ Walter Sobcheck: "Nothing's F***ed Dude."
(one of many BL lines that are part of our daily routine)

I find it surprising, because I'm having a hard time imagining the context that you would use it in.

Here's another one of mine (used when anything goes wrong).

"Game over, man! GAME OVER!" - Aliens

(And depending on the severity of the situation, I may also launch into the all of the other obsceneties surrounding the quote)

I think this selection is surprising because the quote doesn't say anything -- it has no function or purpose in conversation. Sure it sounds odd, but there's countless memorable film quotes that are just as odd. Just watch Repo Man. A line like "Let's go do some Crime" or "A repo man spends his life getting into intense situations" at least has some bearing.

I mean, when you think of ALL the great quotes from the long history of classic cinema, a movie from the last 15 years having THE most requested quote--compared to "Casablanca", or "Gone with the Wind"--it is surprising. It's surprising that a relatively modern movie--albiet an awesome modern movie--would beat out the lines from older movies that have become ingrained in the minds of generations, not one singluar generation.

Speaking of Stephen King..I think he's a fan of Indiana Jones. I mean...is it really a coincedence that he used the words fedora, archaeology, and Steven Spielburg in the same couple of paragraphs? (I don't remember which short story). Good writer...and almost all of the lines in Indiana Jones are good one liners.

Speaking of 'Blues Brothers' -- it was on AMC tonight. I was able to catch from the Ballroom scene to almost the end. The car crashes in that final chase have got to be some of the best ever. Also, it kills me to watch the crowds running mad away from the Blues-mobile in Dalely Plaza. We'll never see that again. That film got me primed for a six+ hour drive I have Saturday -- great roadtrip film.

there are limitless brilliant quotes and one liners from the movies, we might as well name them all while we're at it.....

thought I think that was already done befor....

I dunno, one of my favorite quotes is from 'bill and ted's bogus journey':

(evil robot bill and ted and about to kill good human bill and ted)

Ted: "uhhhh, dudes, even though you're doing this.......we......we....."

Bill: "We love you!"

Ted: "We Love you"

Evil Robot Bill and Ted: *look at each other* *look back* "FAGS!"

I think those 'FAG!' lines from the B+T films are the ones most used by me...it's a sad life


I've recently began work a an Indiana Jones Spoof comic thansk to inspiration of myself and a friend.....it combines Indiana Jones with our 'bill and ted' inspired lives

it's a sad life







BTW Joe, did you see that 'into charactor' on AMC?

No, I bailed after the elevator ride to the tax assessors office. Love the Musac.

If it was on 'Blues Brothers' fill me in on the other thread.

Hey, maquino, where'd you pull those from? Did you really dig through the movies yourself to find the most innuendos or did you find site with them on there? I remember finding a site with those and a ton others. Funny stuff

I like to use alot of stuff mainly from Indy like, "I'm making this up as I go," "Pretty sure," and others like that that can fit into everyday context. I just say it all with the same inflection Ford used. Some people get it, others don't.

"We're in business," or "How about you shut up" are both great ones pulled from Saving Private Ryan I use all the time to, once again with the same inflection as the lines were said in the films.

My boyfriend quotes from Star Wars so much I've lost track of what's from the films and what's just him... I can usually guess though, cos he often cracks up laughing when he manages to fit a quote into conversation.

I don't know who compiled them or when, but I had them lying around in a moldy corner of my hard disk and thought they'd be fun for this thread.

You know, IMM, maybe it's a "had to be there" thing... but those lines don't have context where they could be used in real life. (Which was what this thread is about.)
