Good ol' Upstate New York!
Oh, I probably have hundreds of favorite movie lines but I'd thought I'd mention the final line of Billy Wilder's 1959 comedy, SOME LIKE IT HOT.

The millionaire, Osgood Fielding III (Played by Joe E. Brown) is boating off to what he thinks is future happiness with his new gal, Daphne (Played by Jack Lemmon in drag).

Daphne comes up with excuse after excuse not to get married and Osgood counters them.

Finally Daphne pulls off her wig and says: "I'm a man!"

Not missing a beat, Osgood says:

"Well, nobody's perfect!"

Still a damn funny movie and probably the best final line for a movie ever.:happy:

The only thing I remember from Alien: Resurrection was Ron Perlman's awesome delivery of the line:

"You will find I am not a man with whom to fuck."

Gotta love good grammar in a line like that.

Dave: "If you've ever seen the look on somebody's face the day they finally get a job, I've had some experience with this, they look like they could fly. And its not about the paycheck, it's about respect, it's about looking in the mirror and knowing that you've done something valuable with your day. And if one person could start to feel this way, and then another person, and then another person, soon all these other problems may not seem so impossible. You don't really know how much you can do until you, stand up and decide to try."

I also love that line from the movie Independence Day where the President asks the alien (via possession of a human body) "What do you want us to do??" and the alien gives a simple response of "DIE!"

Like DUH Mr President....

Some of my favorite movie macho quotes are from "Alexis Zorbas" (1963, Michael Cacoyannis) with Anthony Quinn as Zorbas.

Boss: "Are you married?"

Zorbas: "Am I not a man - and is not a man stupid. I am a man - so I am married. Wife, children, house - the full catastrophe!"


"Life is trouble - only death is not. To be alive is to undo your belt and look for trouble!"

"For work - I am your man. But for things like playing and singing, I am my own - I mean free."


The soundtrack from Mikis Theodorakis is also an absolute classic.
