What are some of the best lines said by villains in movies?

Asked by ucme (46312points) June 25th, 2010

Your favourites essentially. Maybe for the sinister way in which they were said or what was said sounded cool, chilling or terrifying. Or perhaps something said for it’s dark humour or menace. So yeah, let’s hear your ideas of the most impressively delivered utterances from the “bad guys.”

“Luke, I’m your father.”

I felt almost like he was MY father when Darth Vader said that!

Agent Smith: I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.

@Draconess25 Nothing funny, scary, witty, profound, or, indeed, entertaining has ever been said in an anime. Even quotations from Shakespeare would seem dull and insipid when they come from the mouth of a noseless, blue-haired six year old girl with gargantuan breasts and eyes the size of dinner plates or an effete, spiky-headed albino dude with a chin shaped like a garden spade who has the mistaken belief that non-stop emo whining is sexually attractive.

Mr. Blonde: Listen kid, I’m not gonna bullshit you, all right? I don’t give a good fuck what you know, or don’t know, but I’m gonna torture you anyway, regardless. Not to get information. It’s amusing, to me, to torture a cop. You can say anything you want cause I’ve heard it all before. All you can do is pray for a quick death, which you ain’t gonna get.

(pulls a big revolver out and fires at Flopsy from point-blank range) That’ll teach you to play hard to get. There, poor Flopsy’s dead and never called me mother. And soon… you will all be dead, dead, dead, dead! And because I’m so evil, you’ll all die the slow way… under the drill!

I’m risking being redundant here:
Dolores Umbridge: [to Harry in detention] You’re going to be doing some lines for me, Mr. Potter. [Harry opens his bag for his quill but Umbridge stops him]
Umbridge: No, not with your quill. You’re going to be using a rather special one of mine. Now, I want you to write “I must not tell lies.”
Harry: How many times?
Umbridge: Let’s see… As long as it takes for the message to sink in.
Harry: You haven’t given me any ink.
Umbridge: [with a small smile] Oh, you won’t need any ink.
[Harry writes and flames of a painful script shows up on the back of his hand as he writes]
Umbridge: [walks in front of Harry with a straight face] Yes?
Harry: [hesitates and looks at his scarred hand] Nothing.
Umbridge: [bends down and says pleasantly] That’s right. Because deep down you know that you deserve to be punished. Don’t you Mr. Potter?

ucme's avatar

@Trojans40 See, I don’t see the dear sergeant as a villain though, more of a fucking hero i’d say.
His classic “Gouge your eyes out & skull fuck you” line, has had many an outing from these lips. A magnificent insult when aimed at the right targets.

Darth Vader

Trojans40's avatar

@ucme I saw him as the one of the best heros I ever saw until the accident in the bathroom with the big guy. Looking at the big guy point of view, I would see him as villian. As a different characther Marine, he would be like a father to me.

ucme's avatar

@Trojans40 Again, my view would be that Private Pyle was an accident waiting to happen. The sarge was helping him the best way he knew how. Hell, he even praised the fucker on the shooting range for his prowess with a firearm. I mean, we all have our different translations & that’s fine, but I certainly don’t see Pyle as the victim, not at all.

Trojans40's avatar

@ucme Maybe indeed, but the Sarge was throwing out insults regradless to whom and what were the results of what being said. He completly threw Pyle into a sucide weapon. I admit thou, the Sarge is no Darth Vader, or Coldemort. Sarge himself thou, is someone that became negative to someone when he didn’t care what happen to him. I think that was pretty cold. Thus Villian worthy.

ucme's avatar

@Trojans40 Of course, given his position he was just doing his job, namely roasting those spunkbubble maggots into marines. Young dumb & full of come, but with a heart that pumps yankee blood XD It’s been emotional!
