    Oh dear! Favorite movie quotes!

    "Honey, lately your low self-esteem is just good common sense." ~ Evelyn Norwich in Spanglish

    "Whoooo!! He's so full of manure, that man! We could lay him in the dirt and grow another one just like him!" ~ Ruby Thewes in Cold Mountain

    "You cannot find peace by avoiding life, Leonard." ~ Virginia Woolf in The Hours

    "I think that we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include." – Pere Henri in Chocolat

    "We're meant to die. It's what makes everything about us matter!" - Aeon Flux in Aeon Flux

    "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." – Jules in Pulp Fiction

  • Jeff King

    Great one guys keep'em coming.

  • Shakespeare

    My favorite one isn't funny--but the end of Star Trek: Wrath of Khan, when the studly Khan is spitting out insults as he tries to destroy the Enterprise? Fantastic!

    The last quote makes me feel AWFUL for the caterer!

  • Bob Johnson

    Too Funny, loved arsenic and old lace, laughed through the whole show.

  • The Mother

    Poor Mortimer Brewster. He's a true tragic hero.

    But his aunts are funnier.
