100 Great Film Quotes Not in the 2011 Movies Unlimited Catalog

2011 Movies Unlimited Catalog “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” “Here’s looking at you, kid.”  “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.” “Schwing!” Where would Hollywood and its fans be without these and other timeless quotations? Well, back in the days of silent pictures, I guess (of course, even back then there were some notable phrases to be read on the title cards). Here’s another one; ”It’s long been said that motion pictures are a visual medium, but true movie lovers know that there’s nothing like a memorable line of dialogue.” That quote comes from Movies Unlimited founder and president Jerry Frebowitz, by way of his introductory letter to the 2011 edition of the company’s DVD catalog (seen on the left and available here), which pays tribute on its cover and throughout its 800-plus pages to some of the best-loved film lines from the last eight decades or so.

Obviously there were more cinematic sayings–the good, the bad, and the unprintable–than there was room for in the book. And likewise, some of my personal favorites were probably a tad too esoteric to be considered cover material. Luckily, cyberspace is nigh infinite, so I’d like to use a bit of it to offer up 99 of my picks, most of which hold up minus context. The ground rules: one entry per movie/actor; don’t quote from more than 10 of the cover-featured films; skip lines taken from classic works of literature (Shakespeare, Dickens, Stan Lee, etc.); and try to keep the material at a PG-13 level (which meant ignoring any of R. Lee Ermey’s Full Metal Jacket quips and pretty much anything by Samuel L. Jackson). In rough chronological order, they are:

      I was reading a book the other day.
      Reading a book?
      Yes. It’s all about civilization of something. A nutty kind of a book. Do you know that the guy says that machinery is going to take the place of every profession?
      Oh, my dear, that’s something you need never worry about.

      Boris Karloff in The Mummy: You will not remember what I show you now, and yet I shall awaken memories of love . . . and crime . . . and death.

      James Stewart in The Philadelphia Story:

  • peterH

    I found two mistakes
    In “The Wolfman” its the old gypsy lady that
    speaks the line. And in little shop the charecter is “Audrey II” NOT JR. As it was named for Seymour’s Love interest.

  • http://www.moviesunlimited.com Gary Cahall

    Thanks for writing, PeterH, but I’ve got this covered. Several people recite the “Even a man…” poem in The Wolf Man and its follow-up films, but the first to do so on-screen was Lon Chaney’s love interest, Evelyn Ankers (Maria Ouspenskaya’s Maleva the gypsy does have that great line “The way you walked was thorny, through no fault of your own”). And the killer plant was called Audrey Jr. in the original 1960 Little Shop of Horrors; the ’80s musical and film version redubbed it Audrey II.

But then, it’s also like if something’s the greatest thing in the world, like mingia those peppers, forget about it. But it’s also like saying Go to hell! too.

    Mea culpa, Robin. By my rules the first “Concentration Camp Ehrhardt” quote in To Be or Not to Be should indeed have been credited to comically pompous character actor Sig Ruman, a two-time Marx Bros. foil.

  • John Small

    I don’t know how many of these truly qualify as “classics,” but here are 25 of my all-time favorite movie quotes:

    Danny Glover in “Silverado” : “I don’t want to kill you and you don’t want to be dead!”

    Sean Connery in “The Untouchables”: “What the hell, you gotta die of something!”

    Burgess Meredith in the 1966 movie version of “Batman”: “Careful, careful… Every one of them has a mother.”

    Groucho Marx in “Duck Soup”: “Remember men, we’re fighting for this woman’s honour; which is probably more than she ever did.”

    Leonard Nimoy in “Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan”: “As a matter of cosmic history, it has always been easier to destroy, than to create.”

    Scatman Crothers in “Twilight Zone: The Movie”: “The day we stop playing is the day we start getting old. Start watching the clock. Waiting for the days to hurry up and end. Counting the years.”

    Robin Williams in “Dead Poets’ Society”: “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering – these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love – these are what we stay alive for.”

    Peter Tork in “Head”: “Let me tell you one thing son. Nobody ever lends money to a man with a sense of humor.”

    John Lennon in “Help!”: “There’s somebody been in this soup.”

    Mel Gibson in “Braveheart”: “”Every man dies, not every man really lives.”

    Eli Wallach in “The Misfits”: “If it weren’t for the nervous people in the world, we’d all still be eating each other.”

    James Cagney in “Man Of A Thousand Faces”: “I’m from the collection agency. I’ve come to collect my wife.”

    Huey Lewis in “Back To The Future”: “I’m afraid you’re just too darn loud.”

    Jack Nicholson in “Batman” (1989): “Haven’t you ever heard of the healing power of laughter?”

    Danny DeVito in “Batman Returns”: “I believe the word you’re looking for is: Ahhhhhhhh!”

    Dan Ackroyd in “The Blues Brothers”: We’re on a mission from God.

    Peter Sellers in “Dr. Strangelove”: “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!”

    Matthew Broderick in “Ferris Beuller’s Day Off” (There are two of them): (a) “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” (b) “A person should not believe in an “-ism,” he should believe in himself.”

    Bill Murray in “Ghostbusters”: “Back off man. I’m a scientist.”

    Robin Williams in “Popeye”: “I’m a very tolerant man, except when it comes to holding a grudge.”

    Peter Falk in “The Princess Bride”: “When I was your age, television was called books.”

    Susan Barnes in “Repo Man”: “It happens sometimes. People just explode . . . natural causes.”

    Audrey Hepburn in “Cherade”: “I already know an awful lot of people and until one of them dies I couldn’t possibly meet anyone else.”

    Maria Portokalos in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”: “The men may be the head of the house but the women are the neck and they can turn the head anyway they want.”

    • Pamhandle

      The Inlaws was a great movie. Then Falk says “they are flying off with little brown babies in their beaks.” Arkin “beaks, they have beaks” and later “there’s red tape in the bush?”. My sisters and I still sometimes use the lines “I have flames on my car” and “Serpentine Shelly Serpentine!” A classic movie that is always fun to watch.

  • Tim Crowe

    The Quote by Dean Jones from ‘the Love bug’ is also wrong: This is said by Donald Sutherland in the film, ‘Kelly’s Heroes’.

  • http://www.moviesunlimited.com Gary Cahall

    Sutherland’s anachronistic hippie tank driver may have said something similar, Tim, but my Love Bug quote comes from the scene where Michelle Lee is banging on Herbie’s locked door at a drive-in restaurant and yelling she’s a prisoner, and a long-haired flower child (Dean Jones in a joke cameo) in the next car offers his philosophical advice.

    You guys have come up with so many great ones but being Southern I would like to add a couple from “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”:
    Big Daddy: Didn’t you notice a powerful and obnoxious odor of mendacity in this room?
    Big Mama: When a marriage goes on the rocks, the rocks are there. Right there! (of course, pointing to the bed) And more from Mr. Williams from “A Street Car Named Desire”:
    Blanche DuBois: Whoever you are, I have always relied on the kindness of strangers and He acts like an animal… has an animal’s habits. Eats like one, moves like one, talks like one!

    Dorothy to Prof. Marvel in Wizard of Oz – I want to go with you to see the crowned heads of Europe! Prof. Marvel to Dorothy – Do you know any?

    Aunt Em to Miss Gulch in Wizard of Oz – Elvira Gulch, just because you own half the community doesn’t give you the power to run the rest of us. For years I’ve been dying to tell you what I thought of you. And now, well… being a Christian woman I can’t say it!
