The Dreaded Movie Quote Meme

I finally got around to doing the movie quotes meme. A fairly eclectic collection, but there’s one or two classics in there. Bonus points if you spot one I mention in a fic. Actually, there’s four. Plus one they could have used as the tagline to “Fear Her” – it tears me up every time I hear it now.

Plus David Tennant’s favourite movie, according to a recent interview.

You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their heads!

I made it out just like you told me to: To the title of the play. “Cash”. It’s a funny sort of name for a play, “Cash”…

You might as well question why we breathe. If we stop breathing, we’ll die. If we stop fighting our enemies, the world will die.

He was as tough and romantic as the city he loved. Behind his black-rimmed glasses was the coiled sexual power of a jungle cat. – I love this.

Why don’t you make ten a little louder, make that the top number and make that a little louder?

Spinal Tap

Bright? He’s a common ignorant slob. He don’t even speak good English.
– Doesn’t even speak good English.

Twelve Angry Men

******

I’m a Jew… I’m small… I’m homosexual… and I live in Sheffield. [pause] I’m fucked.

******

The beast lurks within all of us, my child. [thunderclap] The side of us that emerges at night, when the full moon rises into the sky! The side that savagely rips the leaves off any innocent cabbage…!

Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Wererabbit

I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words:

You’ve Got Mail, guessed by

Gary, you can’t blame yourself for what gorillas did.

You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.

– How do you do business with a man who has no door?
