The deliveries of these two lines are a little bit over the top, if I remember correctly, but the latter is a badass comeback.

50 years later...
The climactic scene of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly involves the most famous shootout in cinematic history between the Clint Eastwood (the Good), Lee Van Cleef (the Bad), and Eli Wallach (the Ugly). It was filmed in a graveyard - Sad Hill Cemetery - which was actually a large set made for the film, located in northern Spain.

"I've spent most of my adult life trying to protect myself from exactly this situation. And you can't do it ! There's no home safe enough, there's no country nice enough, there's no relationship secure enough; you're just setting yourself up for an even bigger fall and having an incredibly boring time in the process." ― French Kiss (talking about being afraid of having a bad relationship)

Pooh: Well, you can't know it without something haven't been sneezed.
Owl: As I was saying, first: issue a reward...
Pooh: He's doing it again. You must be catching a cold.
Eeyore: I'll probably catch it, too.
Owl: No, no, no! I'm not catching a cold! The word is ISSUE, not AH-CHOO! And 'ah-choo' isn't even a word! It's just some sort of sneezy sound, like 'Ah-choo!'
Pooh: Perhaps you should lie down, Owl.

Hello, Maria. I want to play a game. So far, in what loosely could be called your life, you have made a living watching others. Society would call you an informant, a rat, a snitch. I call you unworthy of the body you possess. Of the life you've been given. Now we will see if you are willing to look inward, rather than outward, to give up the one thing you rely on in order to go on living. The device around your neck is a death mask. The mask is on a string timer. If you do not locate the key in time, the mask will close.
Think of it like a Venus Flytrap. What you're looking at right now is your own
body, not more than two hours ago. Don't worry. You're sound asleep, and can't feel a thing. Taking into account that you are
at a great disadvantage here, I am going to give you a hint as to where I have
hidden the key. So listen carefully. The hint is this: [TV screen shows an x-ray.]
It's right before your eyes. How much blood would you shed to stay alive, Maria? Live or die, make your choice.

This is not a quote from a movie, but it's one of the most inspiring quotes i have ever heard.

Not exactly from a movie, but when I think of a great quotation, this speech stands out in my mind as one of the most vivid, refined and effective I can think of:

"It's always the same. When you fire that first shot, no matter how right you feel, you have no idea who's going to die! You don't know whose children are going to scream and burn, how many hearts will be broken, how many lives shattered, how much blood will spill until everybody does what they were always going to have to do from the very beginning: sit down and talk"

Vinny: I object to this witness being called at this time. We’ve been given no prior notice he’d testify. No discovery of any tests he’s conducted or reports he’s prepared. And as the court is aware, the defense is entitled to advance notice of any witness who will testify, particularly those who will give scientific evidence, so that we may properly prepare for cross-examination, as well as give the defense an opportunity to have the witness’s reports reviewed by a defense expert, who might then be in a position to contradict the veracity of his conclusions.

My favorite quote comes from "Matrix":

- The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work... when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

- What truth?

- That you are a slave. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.

-The Ancient One, Doctor Strange (2016)

"My faction is Abnegation. The others all call us 'stiffs'. We lead a simple life, selfless, dedicated to others. We even feed the factionless; the ones who don't fit in anywhere. Because we're public servants, we're trusted to run the government."
-Beatrice "Tris" Prior [Shailene Woodley], Divergent (2014)

not exactly from a movie....

"...but most of all, Lord... Thank you for Making America Great Again!"
-Roseanne Connor [Roseanne Barr], Roseanne; Season 10 (2018), Episode 1: "Twenty Years to Life"

[CONTEXT: Roseanne lectures the cashier who's been harassing a Muslim shopper]
"You are ignorant. That woman is twice the person you'll ever be. And she's dealing with a lot of stuff you don't even know about. So next time she comes in the store, you keep your damn mouth shut!"
-Roseanne Connor [Roseanne Barr], Roseanne; Season 10 (2018), Episode 7: "Go Cubs"

"It's not lame-ass karate; it's Cobra Kai."
Miguel Diaz [Xolo Maridueña], Cobra Kai; Season 1 (2018), Episode 5: "Counterbalance"

[CONTEXT: A sleazy Brother Remegius scolds Prior Philip for allowing the architect, Tom Builder, to use the monks as laborers in the building of a new cathedral]
Brother Remegius [Anatole Taubman]: "God's not happy, either, Prior. He [Tom Builder] should be using skilled labor, not monks stolen from prayer."
Prior Philip [Matthew MacFadyen]: "Work IS prayer, Brother."
-The Pillars of the Earth (miniseries) [2010]; Episode 3: "Redemption"

[CONTEXT: Following the end of the Minbari Civil War between its Warrior and Religious castes, Delenn re-forms the Gray Council with the Worker caste as the ruling majority]
"In the past, it has been our tradition to seek balance. We have called three from each caste: Worker, Warrior, Religious. But that changes... You have forgotten the Worker caste, haven't you? When our two sides fight, they are the ones who are caught in the middle -- forgotten. That it is their time to serve, to build, and to die. They build the temples we pray in, the ships you fight in. They look to us to guide their hands... They do not wish to conquer or convert -- only to build the future. And now, they will have that chance. The Religious caste and the Warrior caste will advise and council. We will serve as is proper. Religious and Warrior must act in the service of the people, not the other way around."
-Delenn [Mira Furlan], Babylon 5; Season 4 (1997), Episode 14: "Moments of Transition"


Don't get me started on Babylon 5, Josh. I could fill pages of funny or witty or cheesy quotes from this show.
As sci-fi TV series go, I never found anything remotely as good1 ever since I... well... sampled it from the Internet in the late 90's.
LotR in space, with humor to boot. A typical episode of this show has more entertainment value than everything Disney grew over the corpse of the Star Wars franchise.
I could barely decipher English at the time, but I found some dialogs so funny that I would replay scenes time and again until I got the pun. When I think of it, I probably owe a sizeable portion of my English to the show. I actually enjoyed the cheesy bits and the grandiloquent speeches too. That's my idea of good entertainment, it has to be a bit bigger than life.

Ok, just one little quote from one of my favourite characters :

Have you ever heard of the hour of the wolf? My father told me about it. It's the time between 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning. You can't sleep, and all you can see is the troubles and the problems and the ways that your life should've gone but didn't. All you can hear is the sound of your own heart. I've been living in the hour of the wolf for seven days, Lyta. Seven days. The wolf and I are now on a first-name basis. In times like this, my father used to take one large glass of vodka before bed. 'To keep the wolf away,' he said. And then he would take three very small drinks of vodka, just in case she had cubs while she was waiting outside. [she takes a drink] It doesn't work.

  • 1. well... except for Firefly, but the show was murdered by Fox producers...
