quote: Jefe: I have put many beautiful pinatas in the storeroom, each of them filled with little suprises.
El Guapo: Many pinatas?
Jefe: Oh yes, many!
El Guapo: Would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?
Jefe: A what?
El Guapo: A *plethora*.
Jefe: Oh yes, you have a plethora.
El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?
Jefe: Why, El Guapo?
El Guapo: Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I just would like to know if you know what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.
Jefe: Forgive me, El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education. But could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?
Scrooge: Spirit, these poor people have no means to cook their food and yet you seek to close the only places in which they can warm their meager meals every 7th day.
Ghost of Christmas Present: Hear me, Scrooge. There are some upon this earth of yours who claim to know me and my brothers and do their deeds of ill will and selfishness in our name. These so called men of the cloth are as strange to me and my kin as if they never lived. Charge their doing to them, not us.
---A Christmas Carol, 2009 version
There are some upon this earth of ours,” returned the Spirit, “who lay claim to know us, and who do their deeds of passion, pride, ill-will, hatred, envy, bigotry, and selfishness in our name, who are as strange to us and all our kith and kin, as if they had never lived. Remember that, and charge their doings on themselves, not us.
---the text from Dickens's A Christmas Carol from the same scene.

Shark: So let me get this straight. Mouse 'Fitz' Fitzgerald: Okay. Shark: I sent you out to pick up a client and take him to a meeting. Mouse 'Fitz' Fitzgerald: Yes. Yes, sir. Shark: Instead of that, you took him to a onrop set where he starred in his very first onrop, then you blew him up... Mouse 'Fitz' Fitzgerald: Wrong. That didn't happen. Shark: Then you robbed a bank. Mouse 'Fitz' Fitzgerald: Robbed a bank? Shark: Threw up on a woman... Mouse 'Fitz' Fitzgerald: [incredulous] Whaaaaat? Shark: And sang to the police. Mouse 'Fitz' Fitzgerald: That didn't happen. I didn't do that. Shark: So what did you do? Mouse 'Fitz' Fitzgerald: I did exactly what I wanted to do. Shark: Which was what, again? Mouse 'Fitz' Fitzgerald: All things. Allllll.

Okay here comes the cartoon lover in me. Some of my favorite quotes from Avatar the Last Airbender Series:
Sokka: I'm too young to die! Old Fisherman: I'm not but I still don't wanna!
Katara: Are you saying I'm a liar? Sokka: No. I'm saying you're an optimist. Same thing really.
Captain: Princess, I'm afraid the tides won't allow us to bring the ship into port before nightfall. Azula: I'm sorry, Captain, but I do not know much about the tides. Can you explain something to me? Captain: Of course. Azula: Do the tides command this ship? Captain: I'm afraid I don't understand. Azula: You said "the tides would not allow us to bring the ship in." Do the tides command this ship? Captain: No, Princess. Azula: And if I were to have you thrown overboard, would the tides think twice about having you smashed against the rocky shore? Captain: No, Princess. Azula: Well, then, maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over...
Ty Lee: My aura has never been pinker!
The Boulder, Earth Bending Wrestler: The Boulder feels conflicted about fighting a young, blind girl. Toph Beifong: Sounds to me like you're scared, Boulder! [pause] The Boulder, Earth Bending Wrestler: The Boulder's over his conflicted feelings, and now he's ready to bury you in a rock-a-lanche! Toph Beifong: Whenever you're ready- The Pebble!
Prince Zuko: I know my own destiny Uncle! Uncle Iroh: Is it your own destiny or one that someone is trying to force on you? Prince Zuko: Stop it Uncle! I have to do this! Uncle Iroh: I'M BEGGING YOU, PRINCE ZUKO! It's time for you to look inward and start asking yourself the big question: who are you and what do YOU want?
Dude, you did the whole scene from Glengarry Glen Ross. Just have 'em go to the link.
By the way, Alec Baldwin said everyone hated him during the making of that movie. During the reaction shots, Baldwin did the off-camera work (usually done by someone else, not the actor), and he said things that were NOT in the script. The scene where he's talking to Shelley (Jack Lemmon), and Shelley looks like he's going to cry, Baldwin said that he ad-libbed some nasty things to Lemmon. Baldwin also said that you could feel the violence in the air when he did the same with Ed Harris. Harris looked like he was ready to start throwing punches.
Oh, and my quote from one of my absolute favorite movies:
Lieutenant John Guild: You got a pistol permit? Nick Charles: No. Lieutenant John Guild: Ever heard of the Sullivan Act? Nora Charles: Oh, that's all right, we're married.
--The Thin Man (which wasn't quite what Hammett had in mind, but it's a great movie anyway)

I turn geeky at the mention of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Too bad for y'all.
quote:Katara: He's just upset because a bunch of girls kicked his butt yesterday. Sokka: They snuck up on me! Katara: Right. And then they kicked your butt.
quote:Katara: Sokka, you're a genius! Aang: How is Sokka a genius? His plan didn't even work. Sokka: Come on, Aang. Let her dream. Katara: You're right; Sokka's plan didn't work, but it looks like it did. Aang: Did the definition of "genius" change in the last hundred years?
quote:Sokka: Can your fortune telling explain that?! [points to an erupting volcano] Villager: Can your science explain why it rains? Sokka: Yes! Yes, it can!
quote:Zuko: I don't want to make a life here. Uncle Iroh: Life happens wherever you are, whether you make it or not.
