    ‘No, no. No, see, this is a really sh*t idea. You know why? Because it’s really obviously a sh*t idea. ’ – 28 Days Later

    I know it includes cursing and all, but it makes me laugh every single time I hear it. Can’t tell you the number of situations that’s applied to in my life.

    Bringing up Baby – ""He’s three years old, gentle as a kitten, and likes dogs." I wonder whether Mark means that he eats dogs or is fond of them?" :D

    “It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses.” Blues Brothers. Brilliant.

    My favorite is definitely from the movie ‘About Smith’: “I know we’re all pretty small in the big scheme of things, and I suppose the most you can hope for is to make some kind of difference, but what kind of difference have I made? What in the world is better because of me?”

    One of my favorite movies is “The Quiet Man” . There are so many good quotes from the movie but one of my favorites is “wipe your muddy boots”. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve used that on the family. Works every time too!

    Here’s a good one from Mrs Doubtfire about honesty when Maddie told Mrs Doubtfire she smelled funny: “I admire your honesty, Maddie, that’s an admirable quality. Never lose that, because it often disappears with age or entering politics.”

    Another good one from Princess Diaries 2: “Courage is not the absence of fear, but the decision that something else is more important than fear.”

    Two quotes from two very different, but very good movies.

    This quote from Machete with the brilliant Danny Trajo:

    Padre: It’s not safe for you to be here. Machete: I’m not looking for “safe”. Padre: No, I mean it’s not safe for me for you to be here!

    This one from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Lots of great dialogue to choose from in this movie:

    Rosencrantz: Shouldn’t we be doing something… constructive? Guildenstern: What did you have in mind? A short, blunt human pyramid?

    I love musicals and my favourite is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. My favourite quote is “I’ve always wanted to be a June Bride… and have a baby right off, in the spring maybe.” I actually ended up doing just that – not by design, it just happened, but it’s a cute tie-in with my favourite film :)

As a token of our appreciation, we hope you will enjoy the two thermonuclear missiles we’ve just sent to converge with your craft.

    It would have to be “No, Mr. Bond, I want you to die!” from Goldfinger – so un expected and so funny when you see Sean Connery’s face as Goldfinger says those words.

    “the day we put the idiots in orbit, you’re not finished turning”, it’s a pale translation from a French film “Le Pacha”, with Jean Gabin. In fact, I just love all Michel Audiard’s dialogues
