(Taken from Havana, directed by Sydney Pollack, 1990)


Breakfast at Tiffany's

Holly Golightly: I'm like cat here, a no-name slob. We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. We don't even belong to each other.

(Taken from Breakfast at Tiffany's, directed by Blake Edwards, 1961)


Wolf (2)

Will Randall: You know, I think I understand what you're like now. You're very beautiful and you think men are only interested in you because you're beautiful, but you want them to be interested in you because you're you. The problem is, aside from all that beauty, you're not very interesting. You're rude, you're hostile, you're sullen, you're withdrawn. I know you want someone to look past all that at the real person underneath but the only reason anyone would bother to look past all that is because you're beautiful. Ironic, isn't it? In an odd way you're your own problem.

(Taken from Wolf, directed by Mike Nichols, 1994)


To Catch a Thief

John Robie: Why did I take up stealing? To live better, to own things I couldn't afford, to acquire this good taste that you now enjoy and which I should be very reluctant to give up.

(Taken from To Catch a Thief, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 1955)

Ted Brautigan: It will be the kiss by which all others in your life will be judged... and found wanting.

(Taken from Hearts In Atlantis, directed by Scott Hicks, 2001)


V for Vendetta

V: There is a face beneath this mask, but it's not me. I'm no more that face than I am the muscles beneath it, or the bones beneath them.

(Taken from V for Vendetta, directed by James McTeigue, 2006)


A Beautiful Mind

John Nash: I've always believed in numbers and the equations and logics that lead to reason. But after a lifetime of such pursuits, I ask: what truly is logic? Who decides reason? My quest has taken me through the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional and back. And I have made the most important discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my life: it is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reasons can be found.

I'm only here tonight because of you. You are the reason I am... You are all my reasons.

(Taken from A Beautiful Mind, directed by Ron Howard, 2001)


Meet Joe Black

Voice: The great Bill Parrish at a loss for words? The man from whose lips fall 'rapture' and 'passion' and 'obsession'? All those admonitions about being 'deliriously happy, that there is no sense living your life without'. All the sparks and energy you give off, the rosy advice you dispense in round, pear-shaped tones.

(Taken from Meet Joe Black, directed by Martin Brest, 1998)

Vincent Hanna: My life's a disaster zone. I got a stepdaughter so fucked up because her real father's this large-type asshole. I got a wife, we're passing each other on the down-slope of a marriage - my third - because I spend all my time chasing guys like you around the block. That's my life.

Neil McCauley: A guy told me one time, "don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in thirty seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner". Now, if you're on me and you gotta move when I move, how do you expect to keep a... a marriage?

(Taken from Heat, directed by Michael Mann, 1995)


North by Northwest

Roger Thornhill: Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself 'slightly' killed.

(Taken from North by Northwest, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 1959)


American Psycho

Patrick Bateman: There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there.

(Taken from American Psycho, directed by Mary Harron, 2000)



Linus Larrabee: How do you say in French, my sister has a yellow pencil?

Sabrina Fairchild: Ma soeur a un crayon jaune.

Linus Larrabee: How do you say, my brother has a lovely girl?

(Taken from Sabrina, directed by Billy Wilder, 1954)

G.I. Jane

Master Chief John James Urgayle: The ebb and flow of the Atlantic tides, the drift of the continents, the very position of the sun along its ecliptic. These are just a few of the things I control in my world. Is that clear?

(Taken from G.I. Jane, directed by Ridley Scott, 1997)


Notting Hill

Anna Scott: I can't believe you have that picture on your wall.

William: You like Chagall?

Anna Scott: I do. It feels like how being in love should be. Floating through a dark blue sky.

William: ...with a goat playing the violin.

Anna Scott: Yes... happiness isn't happiness without a violin-playing goat.

(Taken from Notting Hill, directed by Roger Mitchell, 1999)



Will Randall: I've never loved anybody this way. Never looked at a woman and thought, if civilization fails, if the world ends, I'll still understand what God meant.

(Taken from Wolf, directed by Mike Nichols, 1994)

(Taken from Batman Forever, directed by Joel Schumacher, 1995)

The Emperor's Club

William Hundert
: As I've gotten older, I realize I'm certain of only two things. Days that begin with rowing on a lake are better than days that do not. Second, a man's character is his fate.

(Taken from The Emperor's Club, directed by Michael Hoffman, 2002)



James Bond: That gun, it looks more fitting for a woman.

Emilio Largo: You know much about guns, Mr. Bond?

(Taken from The Thomas Crown Affair, directed by James McTiernan, 1999)



Joker: It's as though we were made for each other. Beauty and the Beast. Of course, if anyone else calls you 'beast' I'll rip their lungs out.

(Taken from Batman, directed by Tim Burton, 1989)



Party guest: I finally had an orgasm, and my doctor said it was the wrong kind.

The Appaloosa

Matt Fletcher: I'm having a little trouble getting started, Father.

Priest: You are in the House of God now, my son. Speak from your heart.

(Taken from The Appaloosa, directed by Sidney J. Furie, 1966)
