Good Lines

Commenter Kerri gave me an idea, for in the comment left was the interesting line of movie dialog:
Gunga Din, 'You disturb me greatly and I ignore the both of you'

I delight in this (I saw the movie, many eons ago and did not remember that line) and want more. So, I encourage, extort, and evoke my other readers (I think I'm up to five or six now!) to come up with other cherished lines of movie dialog. NOTE: the entirety of Princess Bride is encorporated by reference. No cheating. Besides, we want to uncover hidden treasure.

My contribution comes from The African Queen.
"I now pronounce you man and wife. Proceed with the execution!"

You should also declare Casablanca off-limits.

Captain Jack: "That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, now is it?"

Some from the Firebase:

"Do you know how to use one of those things?"

"Why, yes, is simple; you take the pointy end and put it into the other man..."

"Keep your distance, but don't LOOK like you're keeping you distance; I dunno, fly casual!"

"Your bird, it's flightless, right?"


"Then it's not going anywhere..."

Mine were (double points if you could identify them):
#1:"The Mask of Zorro"
#2:"Star Wars: Return of the Jedi"
#3: "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World"

Kerri, that last one was from "The Mask"...

...No, not the quotes, but the very last line... *grin*
