@oneeye; Casablanca is filled with them. (Respectfully, it’s “Here’s looking at you, kid.”)

Bogart says also to Ingrid, “We’ve always got Paris.”

And from Claude Raines, the oft-quoted, “I’m shocked, shocked.”

@shockvalue; Immortal line of Rhett’s. I wish that I had thought of it. Kudos.

I like
“You know how to whistle? Put your lips together and blow.”

“I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days”

@Softtop: attributions? I know that the first was said by Lauren Bacall to H. Bogart in, what? “To Have and to Have Not?” I know that they fell in love during the making of the movie.

The last line of this dialog between Jack Lemmon and Joe E. Brown at the end of SOME LIKE IT HOT.

Brown: l called Mama. She was so happy, she cried.

She wants you to have her wedding gown. It’s white lace.

Lemmon: Osgood, l can’t get married in your mother’s dress.
She and l, we are not built the same way.

Brown: – We can have it altered.

Lemmon: Osgood, I’m gonna level with you. We can’t get married at all.

Brown: Why not?

Lemmon: Well.
ln the first place, I’m not a natural blonde.

Brown: Doesn’t matter.

Lemmon: l smoke. l smoke all the time.

Brown: l don’t care.

Lemmon: l have a terrible past. For three years I’ve been living with a saxophone player.

Brown: l forgive you.

Lemmon: l can never have children.

Brown: We can adopt some.

Lemmon:- You don’t understand, Osgood.

- I’m a man.

Brown: Well,
nobody’s perfect.

sorry, all paraphrasing

Blazing Saddles “What in the wide, wide world of sports isa goin on here? I pay you to lay rail, not dance around like a bunch of Kansas City Faggots!”

“Goll lee, Mr Lamar, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.”

Young Frankenstein “Abby, Abby somebody.” “Abby Normal!?!”

Men in Black “And get a decorator in here quick, cause, DAMN.”

“Elvis ain’t dead, he just went home.”

“A person is smart. People are stupid and panicky.”

Pretty much every line in “The Holy Grail”, “BLazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein” and quite a few from “Austin Powers”.

How about the most famous one liner that never was: Play it again, Sam (may have been used in a later movie, but Bogart never said it…if my failing memory serves, Woody Allen may have said it in one of his movies)

Again, from Casablanca: “Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine.”

@whatthefluther; wonderful answer and fine memory. Woody Allen wrote, directed and starred in “Play it again, Sam.”

Here’s the dialog from Casablanca. Ilsa is Bergman; Rick is Bogart. Sam—>pianist

Ilsa: Play it once, Sam. For old times’ sake.
Sam: [lying] I don’t know what you mean, Miss Elsa.
Ilsa: Play it, Sam. Play “As Time Goes By.”
Sam: [lying] Oh, I can’t remember it, Miss Elsa. I’m a little rusty on it.
Ilsa: I’ll hum it for you. Da..dee..da..dee..da..dum, da..dee..da..dee..da..dum…
[Sam begins playing on the piano]
Ilsa: Sing it, Sam.
Sam: [singing] You must remember this / A kiss is still a kiss / A sigh is just a sigh / The fundamental things apply / As time goes by. / And when two lovers woo, / They still say, “I love you” / On that you can rely / No matter what the future brings…
Rick: [rushing up] Sam, I thought I told you never to play…
[Rick sees Ilsa. Sam closes the piano and rolls it away]

@gailcalled thanks for making this a great thread

gailcalled's avatar

@oneye: I asked this question ( and gave you attribution) at a small dinner party Saturday night. SRM’s SOME LIKE IT HOT dialog from the closing scene was everyone’s favorite. Then came the lines from Casablanca and Gone With The Wind, To Have and Have Not, Bond movies, Jaws, and some Woody Allen.

Wonderful question, by the way. I wish that people would use a little punctuation for clarity, however.
