    Classic movie dialogues

    American Beauty

    Lester Burnham: [narrating] I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn't a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time... For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars... And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined my street... Or my grandmother's hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper... And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand new Firebird... And Janie... And Janie... And... Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty ****ed off about what happened to me... but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life... You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry... you will someday.

    Joe v/s the Volcano

    The third character played by Meg Ryan in the movie : My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.

    Not my favourite all-time movie, but I'd still watch it whenever it's on.

    Two classic scenes from two films I think say something about what it means to be British.

    1) From "Withnail & I"

    [A flat. Camden Town, London 1969. Withnail picks up a paper]

    Withnail: Look at this little b*stard. Boy lands plumb role for top Italian director. Of course his does. Probably on a tenner a day and I know what for: Two pound ten a tit and a fiver for his ar$e.

    [He points accusingly at I.]

    Withnail: Have you been at the controls!?
    I: What are you talking about?
    Withnail:The thermostats. What have you done to them?
    I: I haven't touched them.
    Withnail: Then why has my head gone numb. I must have some booze. I demand to have some booze.

    [He lunges towards the mantlepiece where there is a bottle of lighter fluid.]

    I: [standing up] I wouldn't drink that if I were you.
    Withnail: Why not?
    I: Because I don't advise it. Even the w@nkers on the street wouldn't drink that. That's worse than meths.
    Withnail: Nonsense, this is a far superior drink to meths. The w@nkers don't drink it because they can't afford it.

    [He empties the contents of the bottle down his throat.]

    Withnail: Ah. Ah. Have you got anymore?

    [I shakes his head. Withnail presses forwards and I backs off.]

    Withnail: Liar, what's in your toolbox?
    I: No we have nothing. Sit down!
    Withnail: Liar, you've got antifreeze.
    I: You bloody fool. You should never mix your drinks!

    [Withnail laughs hysterically, collapses to the floor and vomits on I's boots]

    2) From "Trainspotting"

    Mark Renton (voiceover):Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family, Choose a f*cking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of f*cking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the f*ck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing sprit-crushing game shows, stuffing f*cking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, p*ssing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, f*cked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life.

    But who would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life: I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who need reasons when you've got heroin?

    Here's a great exchange from Atom Egoyan's The Sweet Hereafter (beautiful film). Ian Holm (Mitchell) is recounting a memory from his drug-addicted daughter's childhood.

    Mitchell: I woke to the sound of Zoe's breathing. It was laboured. I looked over and noticed she was sweating and all swollen. I grabbed her, rushed to the kitchen, and splashed water on her face.

    Alison: What happened?

    Mitchell: I didn't know. I was in a panic. I guessed she'd been bitten by an insect, but there was no doctor. The nearest hospital was forty miles away, and Zoe was continuing to swell. Klara took her in her arms and tried to breast-feed her, while I dialed the hospital. I finally got a doctor on the line. He sounded young, but cool. He was confident, but there was a nervousness. He had been an intern. This was the first time he ever had to deal with anything like this. He wanted to seem like he knew what he was doing, but he was just as scared as I was.He surmised that there was a nest of baby black widow spiders in the mattress. He told me they had to be babies, or else with Zoe's weight she'd be dead. He told me I had to rush her to the hospital. He was alone. There was no ambulance available. 'Now you listen', he said, 'There's a good chance you can get her to me before her throat closes, but the important thing is to keep her calm.' He asked if there was one of us she was more relaxed with than the other. I said, 'Yes, with me.' Which was true enough, especially at that moment. Klara was wild-eyed with fear, and her fear was contagious. I was a better actor than she was, that's all. Zoe loved us equally then. Just like she hates us both equally now.
    The doctor told me that I should hold her in my lap, and let Klara drive to the hospital. He asked me to bring a small, sharp knife. It had to be clean. There was no time to sterilize properly. He explained how to perform an emergency tracheotomy. How to cut into my daughter's throat and windpipe without causing her to bleed to death. He told me there'd be a lot of blood. I said I didn't think I could do it. 'If her throat closes up and stops her breathing, you'll have to, Mr. Stephens. You'll have a minute and a half, two minutes maybe, and she'll probably be you can keep her calm and relaxed, if you don't let her little heart beat too fast and spread the poison around, then you might just make it over here first. You get going now', and he hung up.
    It was an unforgettable drive. I was divided into two people. One part of me was Daddy, singing a lullaby to his little girl. The other part was a surgeon, ready to cut into her throat. I waited for the second that Zoe's breath stopped to make that incision.

    Alison: What happened?

    Mitchell: Nothing. We made it to the hospital. I didn't have to go as far as I was prepared to. But I was prepared to go all the way.

    Here's one from Hunter S. Thompson, who just passed away a couple of weeks ago (from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas):

    Raoul Duke: How long could we maintain? I wondered. How long until one of us starts raving and jabbering at this boy? What will he think then? This same lonely desert was the last known home of the Manson family; will he make that grim connection when my attorney starts screaming about bats and huge manta rays coming down on the car? If so, well, we'll just have to cut his head off and bury him somewhere, 'cause it goes without saying that we can't turn him loose. He'd report us at once to some kind of outack Nazi law enforcement agency and they'll run us down like dogs. Jesus, did I just say that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me?

    Here's the classic Tarantino-penned dialogue from Sleep With Me that I briefly mentioned in the Movie Ratings thread a little while ago - about Top Gun.

    Sid: You want subversion on a massive level. You know what one of the greatest f*****g scripts ever written in the history of Hollywood is? Top Gun.

    Duane: Oh, come on.

    Sid: Top Gun is f*****g great. What is Top Gun? You think it's a story about a bunch of fighter pilots.

    Duane: It's about a bunch of guys waving their dicks around.

    Sid: It is a story about a man's struggle with his own homosexuality. It is! That is what Top Gun is about, man. You've got Maverick, all right? He's on the edge, man. He's right on the f*****g line, all right? And you've got Iceman, and all his crew. They're gay, they represent the gay man, all right? And they're' saying, go, go the gay way, go the gay way. He could go both ways.

    Duane: What about Kelly McGillis?

    Sid: Kelly McGillis, she's heterosexuality. She's saying: no, no, no, no, no, no, go the normal way, play by the rules, go the normal way. They're saying no, go the gay way, be the gay way, go for the gay way, all right? That is what's going on throughout that whole movie... He goes to her house, all right? It looks like they're going to have sex, you know, they're just kind of sitting back, he's takin' a shower and everything. They don't have sex. He gets on the motorcycle, drives away. She's like, "What the f***, what the f*** is going on here?" Next scene, next scene you see her, she's in the elevator, she is dressed like a guy. She's got the cap on, she's got the aviator glasses, she's wearing the same jacket that the Iceman wears. She is, okay, this is how I gotta get this guy, this guy's going towards the gay way, I gotta bring him back, I gotta bring him back from the gay way, so I'm do that through subterfuge, I'm gonna dress like a man. All right? That is how she approaches it. Okay, now let me just ask you--I'm gonna digress for two seconds here. I met this girl Amy here, she's like floating around here and everything. Now, she just got divorced, right?...All right, but the REAL ending of the movie is when they fight the MIGs at the end, all right? Because he has passed over into the gay way. They are this gay fighting f*****g force, all right? And they're beating the Russians, the gays are beating the Russians. And it's over, and they f*****g land, and Iceman's been trying to get Maverick the entire time, and finally, he's got him, all right? And what is the last f*****g line that they have together? They're all hugging and kissing and happy with each other, and Ice comes up to Maverick, and he says, "Man, you can ride my tail, anytime!" And what does Maverick say? "You can ride mine!" Swordfight! Swordfight! F****n' A, man!

    Independence Day has some good lines in it, like when Will Smith is getting chased by the pplanes.

    "oh no, you did not fire that green sh*t at me"

    and then when he has ejected

    "Y'know, this was supposed to be my weekend off, but noooo. You got me out here draggin' your heavy ass through the burnin' desert with your dreadlocks stickin' out the back of my parachute. You gotta come down here with an attitude, actin' all big and bad... and what the hell is that smell? I could've been at a barbecue!"

    Its an underrated movie, its entertaining.

    From Dusk Till Dawn has some great quotes


    "If you try to run, I've got six little friends and they can all run faster than you can"

    "Let me explain the house rules. Follow the rules, we'll get along like a house on fire. Rule number one: No noise, no question. You make a noise...
    [holds up gun]
    Mr. .44 makes a noise. You ask a question, Mr. 44 answers it. "

    Off the top of my head:

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brothers keeper and the finder of lost children. And i will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers, and you will know my name is the lord when i lay my vengeance upon thee!!"

    'You talkin' to me,' - Taxi Driver (The intonation and inflexion is just amazing)

    A few more from movies like 'My Fair Lady', 'Chinatown', 'Casablanca' and 'Requiem for a Dream' which I cannot recall just now.
