Its not that I'm lazy, its that I just don't care.
--Office Space

Merry Christmas, Sh*tter was full!
--Christmas Vacation

But, we will give nothing back to the academic community. As well as provide no public service of any kind. This much I promise you.
--Old School

Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in your first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker.

Worm: You know what cheers me up when I'm feeling sh*tty?
Mike: What?
Worm: Rolled up aces over kings.
Mike: Is that right?
Worm: Yeah. Check-raising stupid tourists and taking huge pots off of them.
Mike: Yeah?
Worm: Stacks and towers of checks I can't even see over. Playing all-night high-limit Hold'em at the Taj, "where the sand turns to gold."
Mike: •••• it, let's go.
Worm: Don't tease me.
Mike: Let's play some f*ckin' cards.

Doctor: "These people are very sick. They must be gotten to a hospital immediately!"
Elaine: "A hospital! What is it?"
Doctor: "A big building with patients, but that's not important right now"

Doctor: "You'll have to fly this plane. You're the only one with flying experience"
Ted: "Me fly the plane? Surely you can't be serious!"
Doctor: "I am serious. And stop calling me Shirley."

Ted: "It's a letter from headquarters!"
Elaine: "Headquarters! What is it?"
Ted: "A big building with generals, but that's not important right now."

Ahh yes I could go on and on about the virtues of the classic 'Airplane!' but I don't feel like it.

(I copied these from imdb.com)

Planes, Trains & Automobiles -

Neal: "You know everything is not an anecdote. You have to discriminate. You choose things that are funny or mildly amusing or interesting. You're a miracle! Your stories have NONE of that. They're not even amusing ACCIDENTALLY! "Honey, I'd like you to meet Del Griffith, he's got some amusing anecodotes for you. Oh and here's a gun so you can blow your brains out. You'll thank me for it." I could tolerate any insurance seminar. For days I could sit there and listen to them go on and on with a big smile on my face. They'd say, "How can you stand it?" I'd say, "'Cause I've been with Del Griffith. I can take ANYTHING."

As Good as it Gets -

Melvin: "Never, never, interrupt me, okay? Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint. Even then, don't come knocking."

Here's a couple of my favorites:

You know, the Nazis had pieces of flair that they made the Jews wear. (Office Space)

G.W.Bush: There's an old saying in Tennessee... well, it's an old saying in Texas, I believe also in Tenneessee: "Fool me once...shame on you...fool me...I won't get fooled again."
Michael Moore: For once, we agreed. (Fahrenheit 9/11)

John Bender: What do you guys do in your club?
Brian Johnson: In physics we, uh, we talk about physics, uh, properties of physics.
John Bender: So it's sorta social, demented and sad, but social. Right?- The Breakfast Club

Tyler Durden: Hi. You're going to call off you "rigorous investigation." You're going to publically state that there is no underground group or these guys are going to take your balls. They're going to send one to the New York Times, one to the L.A. Times press release style. Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu** with us.- Fight Club

Tyler Durden: Whoa! Okay, you are now firing a gun . . . at your imaginary friend . . . near 400 gallons or nitroglycerin!- Fight Club

Loki: You got to read at Sodom and Gomorrah. I had to do all the work.
Bartleby: What work did you do? You lit a few fires.
Loki: I rained down sulfur, man. There's a subtle difference.
Bartleby: Oh, okay, I'm sure.
Loki: Hey, you know, fu** you man. Any moron with a pack of matches can set a fire. Raining down sulfur is like an endurance trial. Mass genocide is the most exhausting activity one can engage in . . . next to soccer.- Dogma

well, really, every single quote from Anchorman EVER.

I could basically quote Office Space and Old School in their entirety, but I will refrain myself.

"Say goodnight to the bad guy." - Tony Mantana (Scarface)

Frank: I told my wife I wouldn't drink tonight. Besides, I got a big day tomorrow. You guys have a great time.
College Student: A big day? Doing what?
Frank: Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time. - (Old School)

"Normally, both of you would be dead as f**ng fried chicken by now, but since I'm in a transitional period, I don't want to kill either one of your asses." - Jules (Pulp Fiction)

And basically anything from Big Fish, which was a surprisingly good movie.

PS, Anchorman is way overrated!

I'm all about the fight club quotes, but I think you guys have missed the best ones. These are from memory, so they might be a bit off.

"What if self-improvement was just masturbation? Maybe self destruction is the answer" - Tyler

"When people think you're about to die, they actually listen to you" - Jack
"Instead of just waiting for their own chance to talk" - Marla

"Deliver me from Swedish furniture" - Tyler

"We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives." - Tyler

" I felt like putting a bullet between the eyes of every Panda that wouldn't screw to save its species. I wanted to open the dump valves on oil tankers and smother all the French beaches I'd never see. I wanted to breathe smoke. " - Jack

And I lied, I looked up the last two, because I couldn't stand botching them.

By Aceofhearts54 (Aceofhearts54) on Friday, July 16, 2004 - 01:57 am: Edit

Sleepers was good, haven't seen the others though.

I love the whole stylized crime thing. Seems so badass, like I wish I could pull it off. lol

By Lisasimpson (Lisasimpson) on Friday, July 16, 2004 - 02:00 am: Edit

ohh yea..like that movie with all the elvis impersonators who robbed banks..it might have been called 3000 miles from graceland. or that might be the title of a different movie.

By Magoo (Magoo) on Friday, July 16, 2004 - 02:07 am: Edit

"I haven't killed a man since 1984"- Chris "Da Man" Walken in True Romance

Also Dennis Hopper's speech to Walken about the origins of Scicilians that gets him shot.

"Say "what" again! Say "what" again! I dare you, I double dare you mother ••••••, say "what" again!"- Jules, Pulp Fiction

"What does Marcesllus Wallace look like?...does he look like a bitch?"- Jules, Pulp Fiction

"G.W.Bush: There's an old saying in Tennessee... well, it's an old saying in Texas, I believe also in Tenneessee: "Fool me once...shame on you...fool me...I won't get fooled again." "

Wrong. I have a Bushisms calendar, have heard the quote on the radio, and seen/heard it in Fahrenheit 9/11. Here it is-

"There's an old saying in Tennessee—I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee—that says, fool me once, shame on—shame on you. Fool me—you can't get fooled again."

If you hear the audio, its hilarious because he pauses for about 10 seconds after he says "shame on-shame on you", because he clearly has no idea what the hell he's saying.
