I have waaaay to many favorite quotes to list. Just about everything from LOTR, Star Trek, Firefly/Serenity, Indiana Jones, The X-Files... Those movies are all written perfectly. I'll come up with some favorites later.

I do have some least favorites:

Anakin: "You are so... beautiful."
Padmé: "It's only because I'm so in love."
Anakin: "No, it's because I'm so in love with you."
Padmé: "So love has blinded you?"
Anakin: "Well, that's not exactly what I meant."
Padmé: "It's probably true."

"Into the sky, to win... or die!!!" -Eragon (Eragon)

"I suffer without my stone... do not prolong my suffering. -King Galbatorix (Eragon)

"When they learn that the legend is real, they will be encouraged to challenge me. And I am not interested in being challenged." King Galbatorix (Eragon)

Actually, just about anything from Eragon. Almost every line is unintentionally funny.

All of these are the best because I can't think of any bad ones:

"We need guns. Lots of guns."-Neo
"You talkin' to me?"-Travis Bickle
"Toto, I don't think we are in Kansas anymore."-Dorthy Gale
"E.T. phone home."- Hmmmmmm....who could that be....
"Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."-Rick Blaine
"Bond. James Bond."-James Bond
"I'll be back."-The Terminator
"I see dead people."-Cole Sear
"Houston, we have a problem."-Jim Lovell
"You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"-Harry Callahan
"Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer."-Michael Corleone
"Say hello to my little friend!"-Tony Montana
"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"-President Merkin Muffley
"Elementary, my dear Watson."-Sherlock Holmes
"Here's Johnny!"-Jack Torrance
"Hasta la vista, baby."-The Terminator
Striker: "Surely you can't be serious!"
Rumack: "I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."-Ted Striker and Dr. Rumack
"My precious."-Gollum
"Shaken, not stirred."-James Bond
"I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too!"-Wicked Witch of the West
"I'm the king of the world!"-Jack Dawson

And now for my a few favorite MATRIX movie quotes but there are many more:

Neo: We need guns. Lots of guns.

Agent Brown: What were you doing?
Agent Jones: He doesn't know.

Morpheus: We don't know who struck first, us or them. But we do know it was us that scorched the sky. At the time, they were dependent on solar power. It was believed they would be unable to survive without an energy source as abundant as the sun.

Morpheus: What are you waiting for? You're faster than this. Don't think you are, know you are. Come on. Stop trying to hit me and hit me.

Agent Smith: You're empty.
Neo: So are you.

Cypher: I know what you're thinking, 'cause right now I'm thinking the same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill?


Morpheus: I'm trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.

Agent Smith: You hear that Mr. Anderson?... That is the sound of inevitability... It is the sound of your death... Goodbye, Mr. Anderson...

There are many more and those were just a few but here are my 3 favorites and they are a little long:

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.

Neo: I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid... you're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

My Signature:
Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.



Thanks all-Storm

Best quotes:
Hicks(Michael Biehn): I like to keep this handy... for close encounters.

Prince Vultan(Brian Blessed): GORDON'S ALIVE!

Zogi, the High Priest: Do you, Ming the Merciless, Ruler of the Universe, take this Earthling Dale Arden, to be your Empress of the Hour?
The Emperor Ming: Of the hour, yes.
Zogi, the High Priest: Do you promise to use her as you will?
The Emperor Ming: Certainly!
Zogi, the High Priest: Not to blast her into space?
[Ming glares at Zogi]
Zogi, the High Priest: Uh, until such time as you grow weary of her.
The Emperor Ming: I do.
Dale Arden: I do NOT!

Norman Stansfield (Gary Oldman): Bring me everyone.
Benny: What do you mean "everyone"?
Norman Stansfield: EVERYONE!

Léon (Jean Reno): The rifle is the first weapon you learn how to use, because it lets you keep your distance from the client. The closer you get to being a pro, the closer you can get to the client. The knife, for example, is the last thing you learn.


Worst Quotes:
Lt. Jordan O'Neil(Demi Moore): Suck my dick!

The Good

"The path of the rightious man is set on all sides by the enequities of the selfish and the tyrany of evil men. Bless it is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepards the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brothers keeper and the finder of lost children, and I will strike down upon thee with great vengence and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the law when I lay my fingers upon thee."

Samuel L Jackson - pulp Fiction

The Bad

"Lets Get these mutha fcuking snakes off this mutha fcuking plane"

And The Ugly

Great quotes, Sollthar. That's one of my favorite Data moments. And I was actually just going to post a Jubal Early quote.

"I don't care what you believe... just believe in it." - Shepherd Book, Serenity

Firefly
Shepherd Book (to Mal): "If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater."
later
Zoe (to Mal): "So you two were kissing?"
Shepherd Book: "Well isn't that... special."

Serenity... (as they're about to be killed)
Dr. Simon Tam: "In all that time on the ship... I've always regretted... not being with you."
Kaylee Frye: "You mean to say... as in sex?"
Dr. Simon Tam: "I mean to say."
Kaylee Frye: "To Hell with this."...cocks gun... "I'm gonna live!"
