Which line from a film do you find yourself quoting the most?

    For me it's a line from L.A. Story, a film which I didn't even really like all the much:
    'That's part of your problem, you haven't seen enough movies. All of life's riddles are answered in the movies'.
    Not sure why this line is the one which I have undoubtedly quoted the most. Maybe cause I feel it's sentiment is true, or maybe just cause I find myself in the company of people that don't watch too many films and have a lot of problems, so feel it apt.


    EDIT: Was actually from the film Grand Canyon, thanks 3rdDegree :o:D

    Can be seen here in the trailer (2min mark):




    Anyway, that's mine, what's yours..

    I honestly think that quote is by Steve Martin in a very underrated (but good) movie called Grand Canyon. But it is a great quote.

    I'm always quoting lines from Escape from Alcatraz:

    "Is it possible to weld two pieces of metal together?"
    "How are you doing with the liferafts?"
    "Should be done Tuesday morning."
    "Tuesday night we go".

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

    You're right. Why did I think it was L.A Story ffs? Same year made, guess that's what it was.

    Ah, that makes more sense, as Grand Canyon was a good film :p

    White Goodman: We should mate.
    Kate Veatch: What?
    White Goodman: Date! We should date some time. Socially. Go out and kick it.
    [Kate retches, then forces it down]
    White Goodman: Are you okay?
    Kate Veatch: I'm fine. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
    White Goodman: In some cultures, they only eat vomit. I never been there, but I read about it... *in a book*.


    White Goodman: There's no reason we need to be shackled by the strictures of the employee-employer relationship. Unless you're into that sort of thing. In which case, I got some shackles in the back. I'm just kidding. But seriously, I've got 'em

    Kate Veatch: Are you reading the dictionary?
    White Goodman: Oh, you caught me. I like to break a mental sweat too.

    White Goodman: Hey, Rory. Looking good. Here at Globo Gym, we understand that "Ugliness" and "Fatness" are genetic disorders, much like baldness or necrophilia, and it's only your fault if you don't hate yourself enough to do something about it.

    Myself and a friend have plenty of fun regularly quoting a load of the dialogue from 45secs on in this clip.
