Capone: I grew up in a tough neighborhood, and we used to say that you can get further with a kind word and a gun than you can with just a kind word.

Malone: You wanna get Capone? Here's how you get him. He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue! That's the Chicago way, and that's how you get Capone!

Nitti: [About Malone] He died like a pig.
Ness: What's that you say?
Nitti: I said that your friend died squealing like a stuck Irish pig! Now you think about that when I beat the rap. [Walks off, combing his hair. Ness, enraged, grabs him and pushes him off the roof] Hey! What're you doing! Hey! HEY! [he falls, screaming]
Ness: DID HE SOUND ANYTHING LIKE THAT!?


All from The Untouchables 1987

Malone: Awright! Enough of this running sh**.

Abbott: I don't get it. Out of all the guys around here that classy dish has to pick out a guy
like you.

Costello: What's wrong with that ?

Abbott: Go look at yourself in the mirror sometime.

Costello: Why should I hurt my own feelings ?

It wasn't an actual quote, but it's what a lot of people heard.

The movie is "Legion", with Paul Bettany and Dennis Quaid. Here's the wikipedia run down of the movie:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legion_(2010_film)

When Quaid's character says, "I don't believe in God", Bettany replies, "That's OK, Bobby. He doesn't believe in you" it sounded more like, "That's OK.....Bobby doesn't believe in you."

We all had a hoot over the fact Gods name is Bobby. Everyone knows His real name is Howard. You know, when you say the Lords Prayer:

"Our Father, who art in heaven, Howard be thy name."

When I was deployed and things would go sideways sometimes, we'd always say, "Better start praying to Howard!"
 
Don't get me wrong, I HATE Quentin Tarantino and Pulp Fiction (and frankly a lot of the CSI episodes he directed are just Too. Freaking. Weird. for me), but this one was good enough to warrant adoption and use...

[Lawrence has just extinguished a match between his thumb and forefinger. William Potter surreptitiously attempts the same]

William Potter: Ooh! It damn well 'urts!

T.E. Lawrence: Certainly it hurts.

Officer: What's the trick then?

T.E. Lawrence: The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts.

Charlie: Look, kid, I - how much you weigh, son? When you weighed one hundred and sixty-eight pounds you were beautiful. You coulda been another Billy Conn, and that skunk we got you for a manager, he brought you along too fast.

Terry: It wasn`t him, Charley, it was you. Remember that night in the Garden you came down to my dressing room and you said, "Kid, this ain`t your night. We`re going for the price on Wilson." You remember that? "This ain`t your night"! My night! I coulda taken Wilson apart! So what happens? He gets the title shot outdoors on the ballpark and what do I get? A one-way ticket to Palooka-ville! You was my brother, Charley, you shoulda looked out for me a little bit. You shoulda taken care of me just a little bit so I wouldn`t have to take them dives for the short-end money.

Charlie: Oh I had some bets down for you. You saw some money.

Terry: You don`t understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let`s face it. It was you, Charley.



On the Waterfront 1954

The above is great dialogue, but the performances in this scene are what elevate it to classic.

You are spot on. It is nuanced dialogue - you have to think through what Brando is saying, the charge he is making and you have to understand how he takes apart Charlie's defense - which is actually easier to do as the acting - tone, body English, looks and voice inflection - draws you along and gives clues to the undercurrent and deeper meaning. And this is only one of several scenes in this movie where that happens.
