It's only fame, Lilly. Just a paint job. If you want a sable coat, buy one. Just remember, it just doesn't have anything to do with writing.

Okay, I'll play:

"We seem to have reached the age where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away."

Dean Charles Stanforth (Jim Broadbent), Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).

Probably a line that went unnoticed by most audience members, but I had reached that point in my life only a few years before I saw that movie so the line hit me like a gut punch. So, not necessarily a "favorite" I suppose, but it certainly stuck with me.

I Walk Alone

Nick Palestro: For a buck, you'd double-cross your own mother.

Skinner: Why not? She'd do the same to me.




Alexis Richardson: You know, you're quite an attractive man.

Frankie Madison: Keep goin'.

Alexis Richardson: How far do you want me to go?

Frankie Madison: I'm at the plate. You're doing the pitching.




Alexis Richardson: I'm Mrs. Alexis Richardson.

Frankie Madison: You say that like it was spelled in capital letters.


Dave: He'll be here as soon as he can.

Frankie Madison: I know how to wait.


Noll Turner: Sure, that's why men take women to dinner - to have someone to talk about themselves to.



Frankie Madison: Don't worry about me, kid. I just got outta prison, not college.

From High Sierra

'Red': I almost forgot, Mendoza brought us a present and Roy, I guess you're the engineer. Here.

[Hands Roy the machine-gun case]

Louis Mendoza: Big Mac gave me the machine gun. You know how to work it? Red doesn't, and neither does Babe.

'Red': That's a good one , that is.

Louis Mendoza: What's so funny?

'Red': [Sarcastically says] Does he know how to work it?

Roy Earle: Yeah. Say, you know that gun reminds me of one time, 9 or 10yrs ago. We was getting ready to do a job back in Iowa... when one of the guys got the shakes. Pretty soon we found out that this guy with the shakes had talked too much... and a bunch of coppers were waiting for us at the bank. But we don't say nothing. Lefty Jackson goes out and gets his gun. He comes back and sits down and holds it across his knee.

[Roy positions himself in front of Mendoza and lays on top of the machine gun case looking straight at Mendoza without blinking]

Roy Earle: The guy with shakes is sitting right across the room from him.

[Points at Mendoza]

Roy Earle: Pretty soon Lefty just touched the trigger a little... and the gun went

[taps the case 3 times]

Roy Earle: like that. The rat fell out of the chair dead and we drove off and left him there. Yeah... the gun went

[taps the case 3 times again]

Louis Mendoza: [Everyone just looks at Mendoza, who is nervous and sweating] Well, I better be getting back. I have to go on duty at 8:30.

Roy Earle: What's your stint? You stick right through the whole job don't you?

Louis Mendoza: Oh sure, I stand behind the desk and act like I'm scared. When you fellows get through, I telephone the police.

Roy Earle: [as Roy leaves the cabin, he says] We don't want no slip-ups Mendoza.

'Red': Boys and girls, I got the idea that our boyfriend here is no cream puff. How did you like the little bedtime story about the gun that went

[Taps the case 3 times]

'Red': Did you get the idea?

Louis Mendoza: [very scared] Do you suppose he meant it that way?

Marie Garson: Try talking and find out.

You dive into a pit easy, then you have to crawl out hard. Then there's nothing left to do but try to square the account a little.

(Glenn Ford) "Well, what makes you think you'd like to go trail herding?"
(Jack Lemmon) "Well, ah, all my life I've been dreaming about going into the cattle business. Getting out on the trail and -- and I hate Chicago. I'd like to live in the open. You know what I mean?"
(Glenn Ford) "Oh, yeah, I know what you mean. You mean lying out there under the stars listening to the boys singing around the campfire. And your faithful old horse standing there grazing at the grass by your side. You do much riding?"
(Jack Lemmon) "Me? Well, I bet I could ride all day and all night."
(Glenn Ford) "Oh, is that a fact? You know, I bet you like horses."
(Jack Lemmon) "Yes, sir, I sure do."
(Glenn Ford) "Yeah, I thought so. Well, you're an idiot. You're a dreaming idiot, and that's the worst kind. You know what the trail is really like? Dust storms all day, cloudbursts all night. A man has got to be a fool to want that kind of life."



(Glenn Ford) "And all that hogwash about horses. The loyalty of the horse. The intelligence of the horse. The intelligence? You know a horse has a brain just about the size of a walnut. They're mean, they're treacherous and they're stupid. There isn't a horse born that had enough sense to move away from a hot fire. No sensible man loves a horse. He tolerates the filthy animal only because riding is better than walking."

Boy, that sure sums up my experience with, and opinion of, horses. I know a lot of folks (even some on this board) will vehemently disagree with me, but every horse I've ever had more than a passing acquaintance with was nothing more than a pasture thug. I guess I've just never had the good fortune to meet an intelligent, or even reasonable, horse. ;)

Some More Lines From Cowboy

Glenn Ford I borrowed some money last night, and I'm paying you back. With interest.

Jack Lemmon I don't want the money back. We're partners.

Glenn Ford I was drinking. I made a mistake. I never had a partner, and never will. Suppose you take this and go back to the hotel.

Jack Lemmon - I quit my job at the hotel.

Glenn Ford - Why'd you do a fool thing like that? Because you've got a girl in Mexico?

Jack Lennon You made a deal with me. I paid for a share of your outfit, and that's all I want.

Glen Ford Don't talk like that. I've ridden for 20 years. Sweat over every trail. You think you bought a percentage of that?

Jack Lemmon - I bought what you were selling.

Glenn Ford - I got four arrow holes, you buy that?

Jack Lemmon I believed you when you said you never welshed on a deal.

Glenn Ford - I'm giving your money back.

Jack Lemmon - That's not our deal.

Mendoza - He's right.

Glenn Ford - How do you know?

Mendoza If he wasn't right, you would have killed him by now.

Old man Clanton “When ya pull a gun, kill a man.”

Granville Thorndyke “Shakespeare was not meant for taverns... nor for tavern louts.”



Wyatt Earp: Mac, you ever been in love?

Mac: No, I've been a bartender all me life.


Wyatt Earp: I've heard a lot about you, too, Doc. You left your mark around in Deadwood, Denver and places. In fact, a man could almost follow your trail goin' from graveyard to graveyard.

Doc Holliday: There's one here, too... the biggest graveyard west of the Rockies. Marshals and I usually get along much better when we understand that right away.


Old Man Clanton: Wide-awake, wide-open town, Tombstone. You can get anything you want there.
