    Okay, time for more fun. List your favorite quotable films, those that are so full of one liners, quick comebacks, and snappy comments.


    Ghostbusters (1984)

    Winston Zeddemore: Ray, when someone asks if you're a God, you say "Yes"!

    Dr. Peter Venkman: All right! This chick is TOAST!

    Dana Barrett: You know, you don't act like a scientist.
    Dr. Peter Venkman: They're usually pretty stiff.
    Dana Barrett: You're more like a game show host.

    Dr Ray Stantz: I think we'd better split up.
    Dr. Egon Spengler: Good idea.
    Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah... we can do more damage that way.

    Dr. Peter Venkman: Ray has gone bye-bye, Egon... what've you got left?
    Dr. Egon Spengler: Sorry, Venkman, I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

    Dr Ray Stantz: Shh. Listen. Do you smell that?

    Dr. Peter Venkman: I don't have to take this abuse from you, I've got hundreds of people dying to abuse me.

    Dr. Peter Venkman: Back off man. I'm a scientist.

    Dr. Peter Venkman: [picking up his radio and speaking slowly] Come in, Ray.
    Dr Ray Stantz: [excited] Venkman? I saw it, I saw it, I saw it.
    Dr. Peter Venkman: [slowly, calmly] It's right here, Ray. It's... looking at me.
    Dr Ray Stantz: He's an ugly little spud, isn't he?
    Dr. Peter Venkman: [quickly] I think he can hear you, Ray.

    Winston Zeddemore: Tell him about *the Twinkie*.
    Dr. Peter Venkman: What about *the Twinkie*?

    Dana Barrett: [as the gate keeper] I want you inside me.
    Dr. Peter Venkman: It sounds like you've got at least two or three people in there already.

    Dr. Peter Venkman: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Nice shootin', Tex!

    Dr. Peter Venkman: Mother pus bucket!

    Dr. Egon Spengler: I feel like the floor of a taxi cab.

    Young Frankenstein (1974)

    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Igor, would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?
    Igor: And you won't be angry?
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I will NOT be angry.
    Igor: Abby someone.
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby someone. Abby who?
    Igor: Abby Normal.
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby Normal?
    Igor: I'm almost sure that was the name.
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA? IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME?

    [Froederick and Igor are exhuming a dead criminal]
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What a filthy job.
    Igor: Could be worse.
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: How?
    Igor: Could be raining.
    [it starts to pour]

    [as monster runs out the door]
    The Blindman: Wait. Where are you going? I was going to make Espresso.

    And now we get an entire page of Monty Python quotes...

    Monty Python and the Holy Grain

    [Cart man] *dong* Bring out your dead!

    [Old Man] I'm not dead!

    [Old Woman] Ordering, eh? Who does he think he is?
    [Arthur] I am your king!
    [Old Woman] Well I didn't vote for you!

    [Arthur] No, on second thought, let's not go to Camelot. Tis a silly place.

    [Knights who say Ni] We want.... A SHRUBBERY!!
    [Arthur] A what?
    [Knights who say Ni] NI!

    [French Taunter] I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.
    [Sir Galahad] Is there someone else up there we could talk to?
    [French Taunter] No, now go away before I taunt you a second time.

    [Black Night] Tis but a scratch!
    [Arthur] "A scratch?" you're arms off!
    [Black Night] No it isn't.
    [Arthur] What's that, then?
    [Black Knight] I've had worse.

    [Sir Bedevere] What makes you think she's a witch?
    [Peasant] Well, she turned me into a newt.
    [Sir Bedevere] A newt?
    [Peasant] ...I got better.

    [Dennis] Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

    [Dennis] Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

    [King Arthur] Right. One... two... five.
    [Galahad] Three, sir.
    [King Arthur] Three.

    [Tim] There are some who call me... Tim.

    [Guard] Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

    too many good ones....


    [Rick] The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.

    [Captain Renault] What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
    [Rick] My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
    [Captain Renault] The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
    [Rick] I was misinformed.

    [Senor Ferrari] Might as well be frank, monsieur. It would take a miracle to get you out of Casablanca, and the Germans have outlawed miracles.

    [Rick] How can you close me up? On what grounds?
    [Captain Renault] I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
    [Croupier] Your winnings, sir.
    [Captain Renault] Oh, thank you very much.
    [Captain Renault] Everybody out at once!

    [Rick] Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.

    : raises a glass to brilliant writers :

    Good choices, I'll have to buy Casablanca someday, I don't think I've ever really seen it from end to end, just bits here and there on late night or Saturday TV.
