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.

(...for those who think they're getting the book when they're getting the movie...)

[inside the Death Coach]

Darby O'Gill: In the years to come, maybe you'll keep an eye on Katie and Michael.

King Brian: I'll do that. T'is a pity you won't be there to see them married.

Darby O'Gill: Ah, it's better for the old to die than the young. In the end, we all have to go.

King Brian: That ye do.

[pause, King Brian gets a sly look on his face]

King Brian: I wish I could go with you all the way.

Darby O'Gill: [sighs] I wish ye could, too.

King Brian: [laughing] An' you a knowledgeable man! Ha ha ha ha! Darby, you've wished your *fourth* wish!

[Darby starts]

King Brian: Good-bye, Darby me friend!

[Brian magically pushes him out of the coach; the coach drives off with Brian inside, still laughing]

I appreciate that, and it's why I haven't been as strict as I probably should be.

Just remember fair use, people, okay? And be careful.

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?

hmm, lot of popular stuff; I'll balance it out by contributing lines from more obscure movies that I found to have amazing scenes.

/-------/
[circa 1970's; Penny Lane is a groupie who believes she has a special relationship with the band and it's lead singer; Miller is a young jounalist following the band and her close friend]

...
Penny Lane: Look, you should be happy for me.

William Miller: You don't know what he says to me in private!

Penny Lane [ignoring]: Maybe it is love, as much as it can be for somebody--

William Miller: Who sold you to Humble Pie for fifty bucks and a case of beer!? I was there. I was there! Oh, God. [seeing Penny's face] I'm sorry.

Penny Lane [smiling sadly, utterly heartbroken]: What kind of beer?

-- scene from Almost Famous, one of the most powerful scenes in movies, perfectly acted by Kate Hudson.

Sorry for the length but it works as a whole. Edited for content.

From Glengarry Glen Ross, a great performance by Alec Baldwin (Blake) giving the infamous "always be closing" monologue. One of my all time favs.

Edited: I thought 13 lines still applied, but it looks like others have exceeded that in addition to you - sorry.

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.

Good stuff.

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.

So this is back on again, huh? Well...

Flint Lockwood: I've never actually been in a snowball fight.

Sam Sparks: Really?

Flint Lockwood: I don't even know the rules. Is there like a point system, or is it to the death?

Sam Sparks: No. You never? I mean, look, even Steve is throwing chocolate snowballs. Ew.

Well, a certain periodical published the American Film Institute 50 Movie Zingers this month. You won't believe how many of them were from one film--Casablanca.

#5. "Here's looking at you, kid."

#20. "Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

#28 "Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By'."

#32 "Round up the usual suspects."

But, possibly the most apropos at the moment is from The Silence of the Lambs.

#21 "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti."

Murder's never perfect. Always comes apart sooner or later, and when two people are involved it's usually sooner.
