How about these from Stalag 17:

1.  "...and the glockenspiel is kaput!  Everything is kaput!"
2.  "Not Gable; Grable!"

Or from Bridge Over the River Kwai:  "Madness!"

Or from Shenandoah:  "It concerns us now!"

From Hunt for Red October:  "You've lost another submarine?"

Or from Mr. Roberts: 
(1) "Oh, look at the seagulls!"
(2)  "Captain, it is I, Ensign Pulver, and I just threw your stinkin' palm tree over board!"

To a New-Yorker like you, a hero is some kind of sandwitch.  Not some nut who takes on three Tigers!

That sounds like it might be a quote from Kelly's Heroes.

My children and I came up with a list of the Top 10 worst movies we've ever seen. Kelly's Heroes was high on that list. I know some people like it, but it's is absolutely awful.

Kelly's Heroes is awesome,it throws the whole WW2 G.I. as a hero fighting for freedom out the window.Another quote from that film thats pretty weird is when Kelley brings back the captured german at the beginning and Big Joe says "I told you to bring me a good looking kid,not some fat sausage eating wino" and Kelley says "Well Joe if your looking for a young boy you'll have to look yourself".I assume it implies the Big Joe character is a homo.

  Yes, it has its not so smart moments and un-realism.  How exactly, does a small army of americans sneak inside a tiny town infested with elite SS troops anyway?  They even brought the tank! 

But... it's Hollywood so ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.  Even a 76mm Sherman can be expected to take out 3 Tigers :P.  It's all about nailing them in the ass you see...  At least it had a FEW good moments.  There are so many good quotes from there I would'nt know where to start.

I think 99% of fans love it primarily for Southerland's performance.  He wasn't supposed to be the main character, but he's the first one anyone thinks of when you mention the movie.  For very good reason...

Gene Hackman has some great lines in Crimson Tide, usually as part of the interplay with Washington:

Capt. Ramsey: You do qualify your remarks. If someone asked me if we should bomb Japan, a simple "Yes." By all means sir, drop that ****er, twice!


Capt. Ramsey: "War is a continuation of politics by other means." Von Clausewitz.
Hunter: I think, sir, that what he was actually trying to say was a little more...
Capt. Ramsey: Complicated?
[Men Laughing]
Hunter: Yes the purpose of war is to serve a political end but the true nature of war is to serve itself.
Capt. Ramsey: [laughing] I'm very impressed. In other words, the sailor most likely to win the war is the one most willing to part company with the politicians and ignore everything except the destruction of the enemy. You'd agree with that.
Hunter: I'd agree that, um, that's what Clausewitz was trying to say.
Capt. Ramsey: But you wouldn't agree with it?
Hunter: No, sir, I do not. No, I just think that in the nuclear world the true enemy can't be destroyed.
Capt. Ramsey: [chuckling, tapping glass] Attention on deck. Von Clausewitz will now tell us exactly who the real enemy is.
[laughing]
Capt. Ramsey: Von?
[Men Laughing]
Hunter: In my humble opinion, in the nuclear world, the true enemy is war itself


The Canadian Christopher Plumber was excellent as Wellington in Waterloo:

[while sitting side by side on their respective horses, a cannon ball lands close to Uxbridge]
Lord Uxbridge: By God, Sir. I've lost my leg.
Duke of Wellington: By God, Sir. So you have.

Duke of Wellington: [referring to his army] I don't know what they'll do to the enemy; but, by God, they frighten me.

[referring to the English troops]
Duchess of Richmond: They're the salt of England, Arthur.
Duke of Wellington: Scum. Nothing but beggars and scoundrels, all of them. Gin is the spirit of their patriotism.
Duchess of Richmond: Yet you expect them to die for you?
Duke of Wellington: Um-hum.
Duchess of Richmond: Out of duty?
Duke of Wellington: Um-hum.
Duchess of Richmond: I doubt if even Bonaparte could draw men to him by duty.
Duke of Wellington: Oh, Boney's not a gentleman.
Duchess of Richmond: Arthur! What an Englishman you are.
Duke of Wellington: On the field of battle his hat is worth fifty thousand men; but he is not a gentleman.

While Sutherland was indeed awesome as WWIIs quintessential bohemian/hippie, there are just so many instances of great writing and acting that it rates as one of my all time favorite movies. Carol O' Conner just about stole the show from Eastwood and Sutherland in my opinion.

What about the scene where he's listening to the "heroe's" code talk on the radio and an aide walks in and interrupts, provoking from O'Conner one of the flick's best lines.........."We've got the GAME one!"

Then there's the scene with Don Ricklles (Crap Game) laying injured when Telly Savalas (Big Joe) comes in to tell him it's no use since the last Tiger won't budge.....Rickles tells him to "make a deal", Savalas responds, "what kind of a deal", Rickles responds "a DEAL deal" and concludes with another of the flick's classic lines......."maybe he's a Republican!"

Then of course there's the scene with no great quotes, but was classic in it's recreation of the cowboy stare down scenes from the Eastwood/Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns as Eastwood, Sutherlund and Savalas square off for the face down at high noon with the Tiger..........

absolutely one of the best movies ever made.

Some people will never have an appreciation for parody which seems to be the least understood and apprectiated form of comedy.

It's the same with Monty Python. People either love thier work or completely hate it. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground when it comes to parody.

Starship Troopers is another good parody of war films.A lot of people don't get it though.

Kelly's Heroes is one of the best movies of all time. So many good lines, especially by Big Joe.

"This town's got no action! What we need is some booze!"
"But Joe...we ain't got no booze."
Big Joe (in whiny voice) "We ain't got no booze......SHUT-UP!"
Big Joe turns to Chaplain "Okay padre, you and me are going down to Battalion, we're gonna pick up some booze, some dirty movies and some broads, and when we get back I want this place to look like a regular saloon!"

I watch that movie once a year, and I laugh every time...
