Wow..I love movies. Don't know how I missed this thread.
Dr. Strangelove is just packed with memorable lines:
-----------------------------<Battle Hymm of the Republic in background>
Major T. J. "King" Kong: Well, boys, I reckon this is it - nuclear combat toe to toe with the Roosskies. Now look, boys, I ain't much of a hand at makin' speeches, but I got a pretty fair idea that something doggone important is goin' on back there. And I got a fair idea the kinda personal emotions that some of you fellas may be thinkin'. Heck, I reckon you wouldn't even be human bein's if you didn't have some pretty strong personal feelin's about nuclear combat. I want you to remember one thing, the folks back home is a-countin' on you and by golly, we ain't about to let 'em down. I tell you something else, if this thing turns out to be half as important as I figure it just might be, I'd say that you're all in line for some important promotions and personal citations when this thing's over with. That goes for ever' last one of you regardless of your race, color or your creed. Now let's get this thing on the hump - we got some flyin' to do.
Maj. T.J. "King" Kong: Survival kit contents check. In them you'll find: one .45 caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days concentrated emergency raisons; one drug issue containing: antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair a nylon stockings. Shoot, a fellah could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.
the hydrogen bombs have "Handle With Care' stenciled on them.
Hotlips O'Houlihan: I wonder how such a degenerated person ever reached a position of authority in the Army Medical Corps.
Father Mulcahy: He was drafted.
Frank Burns: God meant us to find each other.
Hotlips O'Houlihan: [enthusiastically, opening her blouse] His will be done.
from The Godfather....................................
When Michael retreats into the Don's den for his first big "business" confab (after it looked like he might steer clear of the family "business"). His wife looks on from the hall knowingly...and one of the soldiers returns her gaze without passion and slowly closes the door.
When Michael's son is being baptized and the scenes for the baptisim are intercut with various mob bosses being extinguished.
"Do you reject Satan?".......BAAM <a neat red hole appears in some forhead>
I am surprised nobody mentioned this one.....
"To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women. "
