What are some lines in movies you wonder if other people even heard?

Asked by Dutchess_III (36153points) February 18th, 2014

I’m watching “Titanic” for the 3rd or 4th time. I caught this for the first time tonight. In the beginning, after Rose makes her existence known, the guy (I think it’s Philip Seymour Hoffman) who is helping Bill Paxton, who is playing a research scientist, says, about Rose’s appearance, “She’s a liar! Just like that Russian lady, Anesthesia!” LOL!!

The never ending story… the boy screams out his mothers name… It was moonchild. On a side note in Titanic the Leonardo Dicaprio character didn’t need to be detached from the flotsam that kate winset was using as a flotation device. She killed him.

Disney’s Cars has about a bagillion lines I only heard my 60 or 70th time watching the film.

My son played it at least once a day for about a year and a half, so hearing a new line now and then helped save my sanity.

I still like the rusty car shouting ”Freebird!” when McQueen’s spotlight turns on.

“Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, where Donald Duck calls Daffy Duck a nigger.

When Burt Reynolds tells Willow to fuck off in Kramer Vs. Kramer.

Lots of great and often very suggestive throwaway lines in “Night at the Opera” and other Marx Bros. movies. For example, listen to this exchange between Otis P. Driftwood’s (Groucho) and Mrs. Claypool (Margaret Dumont):

Dumont (asking Otis if he’s carrying all of her luggage): Do you have everything, Otis?
Groucho (meaning something entirely different): I’ve never had any complaints yet!

@talljasperman He was already daid when she pried his cold, daid, frozen fingers off of the “flotation device” which was a door from the ship that wouldn’t hold both of them.

Burt Reynolds wasn’t in Kramer vs Kramer @Blondesjon!

@Seek_Kolinahr I’ve never seen Cars but Disney is masterful about slipping in toss off lines, aren’t they!

@filmfann ? Never heard that one!

In the recent “Les Miserables”, Colette’s adoptive father calls her “Courgette” by mistake. I liked that, but hardly anyone else seemed to catch it.

@Dutchess_III – The twins just turned 1, right? Give it six months. They’ll get you watching it soon enough. ^_^

Oh! One that most American audiences probably didn’t get, but I’m sure @ucme would have:

In Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Sean Bean’s character Boromir cuts his hand on one of the Shards of Narsil (a sword), and gasps “Ah! Still sharp”.

Or was it, “Ah! Still Sharpe”, the name of a character he played in a series of TV movies with such titles as “Sharpe’s Rifles” and “Sharpe’s Battle”?

In ‘Men in Black’, when Zed says ” Gentlemen, congratulations. You’re everything we’ve come to expect from years of government training.” I swear I was the only person in the theater who laughed….

In Boogie Nights, at a party, Little Bill (played by William H. Macy ) says “My fucking wife has an ass in her cock over in the driveway, alright?”. I right away caught the “ass in her cock” instead of “cock in her ass”. I’ve often wondered how many people noticed it.

Jeff Goldblum, who, after doing Jurassic Park, said his famous line again in Independence Day (“Must go faster, must go faster).

I’ll listen for that @Skaggfacemutt!

It is when they are stuck inside the mother ship, trying to blow it up from the inside.

I’m thinking of the Terminator movies…everybody knows about Arnie saying, Asta la vista, baby. Or of course, the most classic of all, I’ll be back.

I’m thinking of the first movie though, and everyone WILL remember this line but…when the cleaning lady knocks on the hotel door where the terminator is waiting, and he replies; FUCK YOU, ASSHOLE.

Not an unknown line, but to me, the most classic Terminator line, ever.

@Symbeline I always liked how it showed the multiple choice thing from the Terminator’s POV.
