What are some of your favorite lines or scenes in a movie?

Asked by Dutchess_III (43344points) November 16th, 2019

If you’ve never seen The Help see it. It’s a great movie. It has Octavia Spencer in it.
The movie details the life of the black house maids in 1960s America. One of the white women was so nasty and racist that Octavia’s character baked her a chocolate pie…please see this blurb of the scene. It’s only a couple of minutes long.

Jump to the next movie we saw her in, Instant Family, also a must see. Octavia is in that too.
In the very last scene a random lady invited Octavia and her friend in for some pie….the first time we heard that Rick and I just rolled!

There are others. In Remember the Titans I LOVED the look on Julius’ face when Gerry Bertier told him that Ronnie Bass kissed him! LOLL!

“And I say let ‘em burn! I’m supposed to apologize for killin’ Johnny Reb? You joined the war to keep niggers in chains. I joined the war to kill white Southern crackers. And that means killing ‘em in any way I can! Shoot ‘em, stab ‘em, drown ‘em, burn ‘em, throw a big ‘ol rock on their heads! Whatever it took to keep white Southern crackers in the ground, that’s what I joined the war to do and that’s what I did!” – Major Marquis Warren, The Hateful Eight

The scene in Rear Window when Miss Lonelyhearts has her imaginary date by herself, and James Stewart toasts his wine glass along with her. It’s just a nice scene, but bittersweet.

I’ve probably said this before.

In Resivior Dogs, Michael Madison, and Harvey Kytel, are arguing. Michael Madison’s character eventually says, to H. Kytel’s character “are you gonna bark all day, little doggie, or are you going to bite?”

Best scene I can think of.

@cheebdragon when my son was 12 and my daughter, who had attitude, was 14, I told them they had to watch this movie, “The Holy Grail.” They had to. They had no choice. Well, my daughter thought it was some sort of Christian trickery and man, she was pissed. I told her, “I need 15 minutes. You can walk away after 15 minutes.” On those terms she sullenly agreed.
My son was like, “OK. Whatever.”
I started the movie and my daughter sat next to me, face set in stone…and man she was PISSED!....but then they come over the hill clacking coconuts…I will never, ever forget her looking at me out of the corner of her eye, and her face starting to relax. :D :D :D
When the camera broke through the window where Bernadette Peters is taking a bath it completely destroyed her attitude!
It was one of the highlights of my parenting career!

Good to see you back, Drag!

Ok, this a long one, but…..

“I was sheriff of this county when I was 25. Hard to believe. Grandfather was a lawman. Father too. Me and him was sheriff at the same time. Him in Plano and me here. I think he was pretty proud of that. I know I was. Some of the old-time sheriffs never even wore a gun. Jim Scarborough never wore one. Gaston Boykins wouldn’t wear one. I always liked to hear about the old-timers, never passed up a chance to do so. Can’t help but compare yourself to the old-timers. Can’t help but wonder how they would have operated in these times.

There was this boy I sent to Huntsville here a while back. My arrest and my testimony. He killed a 14 year-old girl. Papers said it was a crime of passion, but he told me there wasn’t any passion to it. Told me that he’d been planning to kill somebody for about as long as he could remember. Said if they let him out he’d do it again. Said he knew he was going to Hell. I don’t know what to make of that, I surely don’t.

The crime you see now, it’s hard to even take its measure. It’s not that I’m afraid of it. I always knew you had to be willing to die to do this job. But I don’t want to push my chips forward and go out and meet something I don’t even understand. You can say it’s my job to fight it, but I don’t even know what it is anymore. More than that, I don’t want to know.”
