Dialogue pura filmi hain

Monday, March 22, 2010

I was tagged by The Adlibber. The original purpose of this tag was to select some of my favorite film quotes and enter the selection for some dumb contest for winning a free copy of some dumber book written by a dumberer man. Since I refuse to associate myself with such atrocities, I will just restrict myself to enlisting my favourite quotes. Which in itself is a particularly tough job. Especially with all the Tarantinos and Lumets and Allens writing films. And also with the other Marx coming up with the best one liners ever with every passing breath. But I will still give it a try.

So, here we go...

1) Don Lope de Aguirre : I, the wrath of God, will marry my own daughter and with her I'll found the purest dynasty the earth has ever seen. I am the wrath of God. Who else is with me? (Aguirre, der zorn Gottes. Which was originally shot in English and then dubbed in German)

2) Travis Bickle: Loneliness has followed me my whole life. Everywhere. In bars, in cars, sidewalks, stores, everywhere. There's no escape. I'm God's lonely man. (Taxi Driver)

3) Blondie: You see in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig. (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly)

4) Professor Wagstaff: Whatever it is, I'm against it. (Horse feathers)

5) Rick Blaine: We'll always have Paris. (Casablanca)

6) Lt. Aldo Raine: Each and every man under my command owes me one hundred Nazi scalps. And I want my scalps. And all y'all will git me one hundred Nazi scalps, taken from the heads of one hundred dead Nazis. Or you will die tryin'. (Inglourious Basterds)

7) Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk? (Dirty Harry)

8) Allan : That's quite a lovely Jackson Pollack, isn't it?
Museum girl: Yes, it is.
Allan: What does it say to you?
Museum girl: It restates the negativeness of the universe. The hideous lonely emptiness of existence. Nothingness. The predicament of Man forced to live in a barren, Godless eternity like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void with nothing but waste, horror and degradation, forming a useless bleak straitjacket in a black absurd cosmos.
Allan: What are you doing Saturday night?
Museum girl: Committing suicide.
Allan: What about Friday night?
(Play it again, Sam)

9) Terry Malloy: You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am. (On the waterfront)

10) Cody Jarrett: Made it 'Ma, top of the world! (White heat)

11) The Joker: Why, SO serious? (The Dark Knight)

12) Dr.Hannibal Lecter: A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti. (Silence of the lambs)

13) President Muffley: Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room! (Dr.Strangelove or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb)

14) James Bond: The name's Bond, James Bond.

15) The Terminator: Hasta la vista, baby! (Terminator II: Judgment day)

P.S: Anyone reading please feel free to tag yourselves. And let me know so that I can go read and make snooty remarks.

yeah some of them were so expectedly predictable, like Woody Allen, Dirt Harry, and Taxi-Driver :) I love the lines from Taxi-Driver. Quote korbo kothau kono din :P

Shiri_br said...

Here is my list!

It's really difficult to quote favourite one-liners when you see those are only small parts of some awesome conversations :P
And I absolutely had to quote the same line as the best one!

15. Osgood Fielding III : Well, nobody's perfect!

14. Tony Montana : Say 'hello' to my little friend!

13. Jack Torrance : Here's Johnny!

12. Johnny Castle : Nobody puts 'Baby' in a corner.

11. Jules : You, flock of seagulls, you know why we're here? Why don't you tell my man Vincent where you got the shit hid at?
Marvin : It's over th...
Jules : I don't remember askin' you a Goddamn thing! You were saying?
Roger : It's in the cupboard.
Roger : No, no, the one by your kn-knees.
Jules : We happy?
Jules : Vincent! We happy?
Vincent : Yeah, we happy.
Brett : I'm sorry, I didn't get your name. I got yours, Vincent, right? But I didn't get yours...
Jules : My name's Pitt. And your ass ain't talkin' your way out of this shit.
Brett : No, no, I just want you to know... I just want you to know how sorry we are that things got so fucked up with us and Mr. Wallace. We got into this thing with the best intentions and I never...
Jules[shoots the man on the couch]: I'm sorry, did I break your concentration? I didn't mean to do that. Please, continue, you were saying something about best intentions. What's the matter? Oh, you were finished! Well, allow me to retort. What does Marsellus Wallace look like?
Brett : What?
Jules : What country are you from?
Brett : What? What? Wh-
Jules :'What' ain't no country I've ever heard of. They speak English in What?
Brett : What?
Jules : English, motherfucker, do you speak it?
Brett : Yes! Yes!
Jules : Then you know what I'm sayin'!
Brett : Yes!
Jules : Describe what Marsellus Wallace looks like!
Brett : What?
Jules : Say 'what' again. Say 'what' again, I dare you, I double dare you motherfucker, say what one more Goddamn time!

10. Jules : The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities 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.

7. Harvey Dent : You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
