I thought I'd start a thread in the hopes that it would be as popular as Lacero's Picture Association Game. Probably won't be, but here goes anyway. My problem is that movie quotes sometimes just randomly pop into my head, like this...

"What am I going to do with 40 subscriptions to Vibe?"

My favorite:

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together - mass hysteria.

"I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tännhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost, in time, like... tears in rain. Time to die."

Oh, and this one: "This is a chemical burn."

First one that came to mind:

"I've killed the boss, you think they're not gonna fire me for a thing like that?!"
-Nine to Five

Some others:
(Fifth Element)
[Father Cornelius and Ruby Rhod see the bomb stuck to the door]
Priest Vito Cornelius: It's a - it's a - it's a - it's a - it's a - it's a...
DJ Ruby Rhod: No no no no no no. 'Cuz if it was a bomb, the alarms would go off 'cuz all these hotels have bomb detectors, right?
[the alarms sound]

Police: Are you classified as human?
Korben Dallas: Negative, I am a meat popsicle.

(Jurassic Park)
Dr. Ian Malcolm: God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs...
Dr. Ellie Sattler: Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth...

(The Princess Bride)
Vizzini: Inconceivable!

Vizzini: You only think I guessed wrong - that's what's so funny. I switched glasses when your back was turned. Ha-ha, you fool. You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia", but only slightly less well known is this: "Never go in against a Sicilian, when *death* is on the line.". Hahahahahah.
[Vizzini falls over dead]

The Impressive Clergyman: Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam...

(Star Trek IV)
Spock: Your use of language has altered since our arrival. It is currently laced with, shall we say, more colorful metaphors, "double dumb-ass on you" and so forth.
Kirk: Oh, you mean the profanity?
Spock: Yes.
Kirk: Well that's simply the way they talk here. Nobody pays any attention to you unless you swear every other word.

(Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
French Soldier: I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

King Arthur: [after Arthur's cut off both of the Black Knight's arms] You've got no arms left.
Black Knight: Yes I have.
King Arthur: *Look*!
Black Knight: It's just a flesh wound.

Sir Bedevere: What makes you think she's a witch?
Peasant 3: Well, she turned me into a newt.
Sir Bedevere: A newt?
Peasant 3: ...I got better.

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

"You want a thumb? I can get you a thumb. Heck I can get you a thumb by 2 o'clock this afternoon."

"I'm not going to live by their rules anymore!"

I think it would be fun if we also had to guess the movie the quote came from. Of course, these are easy, but whatever.

"I'm the best goddamn dancer in the American Ballet Academy. Who the hell are you? Nobody!"

Or just about any line from You Got Served.

Since no one else is taking care of the absolute classicly hilarious movie lines...

"Surely you can't be serious. I am serious. And don't call me Shirley."
-Airplane! (Duh.)

"So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one---big hitter, the Lama---long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice."
-Caddyshack (Once again, Duh.)

"Heywood leads the league in most offensive categories, including nose hair. When this guy sneezes, he looks like a party favor."
(And just about every other Bob Uecker quote in Major League)

Those are about all I can think of right now. Definiety good ones though.

Ned: You can stand here with me if you want but you'll have to agree not to talk about the heat.
Matty: I'm a married woman.
Ned: Meaning what?
Matty: Meaning I'm not looking for company.
Ned: Then you should have said I'm a happily married woman.
Matty: That's my business.
Ned: What?
Matty: How happy I am.
Ned: And how, happy is that?
She leaves. He follows.
Matty: You aren't too bright..... I like that in a man.
Ned: What else do you like? Lazy? Ugly? Horny? I got 'em all.
Matty: You don't look lazy.

Matty: Tell me, does chat like that work with most women?
Ned: Some. If they haven't been around much.
Matty: I wondered. Thought maybe I was out of touch.

Ned: I need someone to take care of me, someone to rub my tired muscles, smooth out my sheets.
Matty: Get married.
Ned: I just need it for tonight.

Ned: You better take me up on this quick. In about 45 minutes, I'm going to give up and go away.

Gotta love Ghostbusters and/or Bill Murry.

I don't have a favorite movie line as I usually quote 20+ movies in a day. In fact, I don't even speak English. I've just memorized various movie scripts.

"...Don't want no kids. I Just want some chips. Yo, turn that over man it's burnin'...it's burnin'!"

From Human Traffic:

All that exists now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. I've got 48 hours off from the world, man. I'm gonna blow steam out of my head like a screaming kettle. I'm gonna talk codshit to strangers all night. I'm gonna lose the plot on the dancefloor, the free radicals inside me are freaking man! Tonight I'm Jip Travolta, I'm Peter Popper, I'm going to Never Never Land with my chosen family, man. We're going to get more spaced out than Neil Armstrong ever did. Anything could happen tonight, you know? This could be the best night of my life! I've got 73 quid in my backburner. I'm gonna wax the lot, man. The milky bars are on me! Yeah!

From The Italian Job:

You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!

From Die Hard:

Why don't you wake up and smell what you shovellin'?

From Dirty Dancing:

Nobody puts Baby in the corner
