So you're saying there's a chance. dumb & dumber

 

Princess Bride has great quotes:

  • 'I must be overtired', Buttercup managed. 'The excitement and all.'
    'Rest then', her mother cautioned. 'Terrible things can happen when you're overtired. I was overtired the night your father proposed.” 
  • Have fun storming the castle

"What if this is as good as it gets?"

Re: funniest line in a movie

I don't remember the particular movie but it was one of the very old Marx Brothers movies.  They were running all around as insurance agents and when someone asked about the benefits Groucho says ... "If you lose a leg, we'll help you look for it" ...

The scene in The Shining when Jack Nicholson is chopping down the door with an ax and with a weird wide-eyed smile on his face announces:  "WENDY, ...I'M HOME!!!"

Right genre.  Wrong movie.  This is a Godfather quote.

I think it was the opposite . . . “Leave the guns and take the cannolis.”

You are right.  Good catch.  Wrong movie and a misquote.

Just to set the record straight, the line is Clemenza's in The Godfather and it's:

 

Leave the gun.  Take the cannoli.

John: Poor John. Who says poor John? Don't everybody sob at once! My God, if I went up in flames there's not a living soul who'd pee on me to put the fire out!

 

Richard: Let's strike a flint and see.


 

So many good lines, it's difficult to choose one (same as with All About Eve, Some Like It Hot and Auntie Mame)


I'm vilifying you, for God's sake — pay attention!

 

Hush dear, mother's fighting.

It's James Goldman's play, then screenplay.  Fabulous!

 

 

Henry II: I marvel at you after all these years. Still like a democratic drawbridge: going down for everybody.

 

Eleanor of Aquitaine: At my age there's not much traffic anymore.

Eleanor of Aquitaine: I even made poor Louis take me on Crusade. How's that for blasphemy. I dressed my maids as Amazons and rode bare-bre_sted halfway to Damascus. Louis had a seizure and I da_n near died of windburn... but the troops were dazzled.

Eleanor of Aquitaine: What would you have me do? Give out? Give up? Give in?

 

Henry II: Give me a little peace.

 

Eleanor of Aquitaine: A little? Why so modest? How about eternal peace? Now there's a thought.

That scene in the parking lot is one of my all time favorites. Tawanda!
