    Following on from the favourite character (and forgive me if this has been done before), what's the best/coolest/slickest/funniest film quote?

    Having watched Gladiator last night I'm stuffed to the gills with good quotes:
    "On my command, unleash hell!"
    being my favourite.

    One of my best quotes actually comes from DS9:
    "I'm not a god, I'm a security officer"

    Any more for any more?

    I think my favorite Gladiator quote is when Joaquine Phoenix says, "I'm vexed...I'm terribly vexed."

    Another good movie quote is Obi-Wan Kenobi "Whose more the fool, the fool or the fool who follows him?"

    "My name is Kobayashi. I work for Kayser Soze"
    Sums up the whole movie for me ... :)

    And then of course there is Pulp Fiction, but most of those quotes wouldn't survive the tMP-bad-language-filter :) One that shouldn't be a problem, is
    "Hey, that's Kool and the Gang"

    All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us? - Life of Brian

    He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy! - also Life of Brian <---- that's my favourite!

    The one redeeming line in the otherwise terrible film Gattaca is when Jude Law says "We have to get drunk...immediately!" There are so many occasions when that line is appropriate.

    Star Wars has a plethora of great quotes for everyday use:
    "These aren't the droids you're looking for." (with hand gesture)
    "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
    "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy"

    As does the Princess Bride:
    "INCONCEIVABLE." "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    "In the morning... I'll make WAFFLES!"

    From some arty flick I think...

    Another one from Pulp Fiction that can survive the Mods is

    "That IS a tasty burger"
    (Just makes me chuckle, I don't know why)

    From Zulu, where one of the young privates turns to the colour sergeant and says "Why us?", and the answer comes back "Because we're 'ere, lad".

    probably the best quote from pulp fiction has to be jules's quote

    "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 brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee"

    just love it when he comes out with that!

    You forgot the gun shots at the end of the quote :)

    Most cool guy in the entire movie is of course The Wolf ("I fix things")

    "Just keep swimming...............", "Escape! Thats funny, this is spelt just like escape!", "P. Sherman, 42 Walliby Way, Sydney" Dory in "Finding Nemo"

    "Mongo, just pawn in game of life...." Mongo in "Blazing Saddles"

    "I'm Brian and so is my wife!" Life of Brian.

    "How would you like to s*** my b***s, Mr Garison?" Cartman, "South Park, The Movie"

    "Maria, What is it you can't face?" Mother Superior, "Sound of Music." (Play around with the emphasis)

    "Where on a mission from God" Elwood Blues, "The Blues Brothers"

    I'm sure I can come up with more........................ ;)
