    Famous Quotes. Name the movie, the star, the character who said it.
    Maybe your reaction to the film. When you first saw it. How
    many times you've seen it. Whatever you like.

    Wait a minute! Wait a minute! You ain't heard nothing yet.

    If you build it, they will come.

    Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me. Aren't you?

    I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    Aren't you a little short for a storm trooper?

    Beep! Beep!

    Land is the only thing in the world worth working for, worth
    fighting for, worth dying for. Because it's the only thing
    that lasts.

    After all, tomorrow is another day.

    Good game Rock!

    Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me. Aren't you? THE GRADUATE

    And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson (Simon and Garfunkel)

    I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore. THE WIZARD OF OZ -- ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVES! I've seen it over 25 times. I own the DVD. :) Somewhere Over The Rainbow is one of the best songs I've ever heard!

    That's it for now,

    Hugs, Diane

    You ain't heard nothing yet - Al Jolson, The Jazz Singer, the 1920's.

    If you build it they will come - Kevin Costner, Field of Dreams.

    Beep Beep, sounds like a road runner cartoon.

    Land is the only thing, etc. Gone With the Wind.

    After all tomorrow is another day, Scarlett O'Hara, Gone With the Wind.

    Very good, Diane and GB. All your answers were correctomundo. I suspect
    Gone With The Wind has the most quotable lines. I'll put up some more.

    Go ahead, make my day was spoken by Clint Eastwood. Dirty Harry.
    I'll be back was from one of Arrrrrrnold Schwartzenegger's movies. Don't
    remember which one. I know I took my son to see it.

    I coulda been a contender was a line by Marlon Brando in On the
    Waterfront. Never cared much for that movie. Too grim. Lenny
    Bernstein wrote the score. He said, "Never again." Didn't like
    having his music muted so one of the actors could grunt.

    We have the stars was by Bette Davis at the end of Now Voyager.
    One of Bette's best films. Never thought Bette was a great actress tho
    although she and apparently lots of fans did. The score was by
    Max Steiner who also did Gone With the Wind and hundreds more.

    One reason he was able to do so many is because in many early
    sound films, the music might add up to only 10-20 minutes rather
    than the entire film. An opening fanfare, some music in the middle
    during an action or love scene, and then a bit more at the end.

    Looking at you, Kid is probably Humphrey Bogart. Maybe to Lauren
    Becall. From one of his many noir films. Never liked them or him
    either. But everybody like Betty. Her nickname Betty shows up in

    Bogart and his actress wife Mayo Methot were notorious for their
    drinking and fighting. She reportedly threw ashtrays at him when
    she was drunk.

    You had me at hello is a complete mystery to me.

    I'll put up some more quote later, Kids. In the meantime, don't take
    any wooden nickels.

    Yup, you got 'em as usual, GB. The accessorize line is from Steel Magnolias.
    Said by the Olympia Dukakis character. I read her autobiography recently.
    She is related to Michael Dukakis, Governor of Massachusetts who ran for
    President not too long ago. I think she said they were cousins.

    Need a bigger boat is from Jaws. The seatbelt line is from All
    About Eve. Kind of a funny line. The movie was made in 1950
    and seatbelts weren't standard on American cars till the mid 60s.

    Only the beginning is from the beginning of Grease. Dog bite is from
    The Pink Panther Strikes Again. The bosom line is also
    from GWTW; Mammy to Scarlet.

    Stella is from A Streetcar named Desire. Marlon Brando was yelling
    for his wife. Scarlett O'Hara played the sister Blanche.

    Rosebud was painted on the sled in Citizen Kane.

    You know how to whistle is from another of those film noirs. Did
    Lauren Bacall say it to Humphrey Bogart?

    Don't know about Paris. Sounds like the final line in some 40s
    romance film.

    King of the World. Is that when Jimmy Cagney is yelling on
    top of the oil storage tank?

    Dunno about Showtime Folks. I'll take a wild guess that it's
    from a show biz film. Ha Ha.

    Good answers Rock! The 'whistle' line is from To Have and to Have Not. Lauren Bacall. I remember the scene. It was cute!

    The Paris line was from Casablanca. Bogart again. I think he said it to Ingrid Bergman.

    King of the World was from the remake of Titanic. Spoken by Leo DiCaprio on the ship's bow.

    It's Showtime Folks was from the movie based the life of Bob Fosse. All That Jazz. He said it repeatedly. A weird movie.

    "A boy's best friend is his mother."

    Hi Diane
    Good to see you back on the board. I don't remember A boys' best friend
    is his mother as a quote. But I do remember it as a song.

    It was written in 1883 and recorded in 1925 by Vernon Dahlhart.
    Those dates are significant because the singer was born in 1883
    and 1925 was the year recording companies first used microphones.
    Before that the singer sang into a horn. Sorta like the horn the music
    came out of on the early phonographs.

    Vernon was extremely popular. Sold millions of records. The
    music business was very different in those days. He recorded
    under several pseudonyms. And for several different recording
    companies. If you're curious, you can hear this old hit tune
    on Youtube.

    "Wherever we may turn, this lesson may learn"
    A boy's best friend is his mother."



    I had a college roommate with one of these old phonographs. Still worked.
    Played records both new and old. It was non electric. You wound it up.

    1 These are not the droids you are looking for.
    2 What we've got here is a failure to communicate.

    3 All right, Mr. DeMille. I'm ready for my close up.
    4 I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.

    5 Well, nobody's perfect.
    6 There must be something between us; even if it's only an ocean.

    7 They're here.
    8 Gentlemen, you can't fight in here. This is a War Room.

    2. Cool Hand Luke, Paul Newman

    3. Sunset Boulevard, Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson).

    4. A Streetcar Named Desire, maybe spoken by Blanche DuBois.
  15. rockgor

    rockgor Well-Known Member

    Right, right, right, GB. I never did see Cool Hand Luke, but I've seen
    and heard the quote many times in other films and on TV and
    in comments on the news, and conversations, etc.

    Anyhoo the quote was first delivered by Strother Martin and later
    by Paul Newman. Martin was a character actor who was in oodles
    of films and TV shows. He played the waiter in the coffee shop when
    Lucy and Ethel went to Florida with Elsa Lanchester.

    Yes, it was Blanche (Vivian Leigh) who delivered the line.

    Just woke up. More and more I'm awake all night and abed all day.
    Good thing I seldom have to be anywhere during daylight hours. How
    are things at your casa?

    Hi Diane

    It's Psycho! I remember seeing it in 1960. Scariest movie I ever saw.
    I saw the Psycho house about 7 years later at Universal Studios. Which
    is kinda a funny place for it since Psycho was a Paramount movie.

    Universal Studios is also home to the showboat from the MGM movie. I
    read Universal bought it from MGM.

    BTW on the tour at Universal the guide makes a joke about the paths
    around the house. "They are psychopaths."

    Very good, Diane. Glad to see you well enough to post this morning. BTW,
    I read just the other day that the top movie quote was,"Frankly, My Dear, I
    don't give a damn." David Selznick had to plead with the censorship
    folks to get permission to use the line.

    I think you guys got all but 6 and 8.

    "Must be something between us" is from An Affair to Remember;
    Cary Grant.

    "This is a war room" is from Dr. Strangelove.

    Here are a few more.

    1 Scotty, Beam us up.
    2 So let it be written. So let it be done.

    3 But you are, Blanche! You are in that chair!
    4 Non. (Clue: it's the only dialogue in the movie.)

    5 Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.
    6 It's alive! It's alive.

    7 Surely you can't be serious.
    I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.
    8 If you wanna call me that, smile.
