Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I’ll tell you what I’d do, man: two chicks at the same time, man.
Peter Gibbons: That’s it? If you had a million dollars, you’d do two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I were a millionaire I could hook that up, too; ‘cause chicks dig dudes with money.
Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well, the type of chicks that’d double up on a dude like me do.
Peter Gibbons: Good point.

Drat, there’s a very similar question with some great quotes, but I can’t find it…...

@johnpowell, do you remeber the question? I seem to recognize your quote from before.

There was a similar question; wonderful quotes from Mae West, Humphrey Bogart, the last dialog in Some Like it Hot between Jack Lemon and Joe E Brown (quoted rapturously by SRM), Lauren Bacall, WC Fields, Abbott and Costello, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn. I can’t find it either.

Can anyone find the earlier question? I am really frustrated. So many terrific answers there. Astro: Indeed, that was the final memorable line; Steve Morgan showed us the entire proposal scene. And I can’t find the question. That’s the trouble with the tag system .

I want you to hit me as hard as you can.

You can turn your back on a person, but, never turn your back on a drug. Especially when it’s waving a razor-sharp hunting knife in your eye.

“Now I have a message for all you good, moral Christian people who are complaining that breasts and vaginas are obscene. Hey, don’t complain to me. Complain to the manufacturer, okay. And, although Jesus told you not to judge, I know you’re going to judge away. So judge sanely. Judge with your eyes open. What do you consider obscene? Is this obscene to you?” -

My opinion only. For part two of the question, I find the earlier quotes are better crafted, more embedded in the cultural consciousness and more elegant than a lot of the new ones. Check out the link I listed above for some permanent parts of the cinema history – not just recent ones. Viz: (for you, Bri_L)

“Why don’t you come up and see me some time.”
“We’ll always have Paris.”
“Beulah, peel me a grape.”
Astro’s quote from “When Harry met Sally”.

Mrs_Dr_Frank_N_Furter's avatar

“Yes but isn’t it nice
“You wouldn’t want him (her) to see you like this would you?”

“I am your singing telegram!”
Also the whole conversation between Wadsworth (my Tim plays him) and Colonel Mustard

This is from the TV show Robin Hood on BBC but it is still good:
The Sheriff of Nottingham says these
“A clue? NO!
“Oh la di da!”

Where does this come from? “It’s a fair cop.” I hear this on a lot of British television shows.

I saw a commercial and thought it was hilarious. But I thought you all saw the movie, so I changed it around a bit as a joke.

and Al Pacino’s Speech from Any Given Sunday, it sends shivers down my spine! We listen to it before a big rowing race, and just stop it before he says “that’s what football is” haha.

The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind.
