    Hi I like funny. obscure, serious and sometimes weird quotes. So I thought I'd
    start a thread on it. Only rule is nothing obviously obscene. However implied
    should be okay as long as its double meanings. (Think Leslie Nielsen movies).
    Enjoy all

    And Heres the first quote:
    "Anything more than 500 years old,,, Probably evil." rolleyes:

    There's been some recent additions to the Mafia Wars FB game that have had me thinking of the movie the following quote comes from:

    Clark Kellogg (played by Matthew Broderick):[narrating] "There's a kind of freedom in being completely screwed... because you know things can't get any worse."

    Any guesses?

    ok i dunno if this is a guessing game or just quoting stuff cuz the poster thinks its cool... either way, i hadnt heard of the quote in either of whitestar or basara's quotes so i forced to look them up... basara i found quickly as a movie i hadnt seen, and whitestar all i found was an obscure website with a picture apparently titled the quote u used.... i dont really wanna ruin anything for anyone else so i wont mention the movie or the website... but an interesting forum anyways...

    i will give a quote, probably easy to guess for most, from my favorite movie just cuz i cant think of anything obscure enough to fool u guys at the moment...

    "then he showed those men of will what will really was"

    Trust me - the movie my quote is from is NOT your typical mafia movie, and is a pretty funny one, if you're into such things (I mean, they got Brando to play in it as a mafia don that LOOKS LIKE BRANDO, as part of the plot).

    Ok I'm going to give a couple more here. (From the same guy, I love his quotes)
    Enjoy

    "A limerick is a primitive art form; it starts with a pair o'dactyls."

    "The Three Laws of Infernal Dynamics:
    1. An object in motion will always be headed in the wrong direction.
    2. An object at rest will always be in the wrong place.
    3. The energy required to change either of these states will always be
    more than you wish to expend, but never so much as to make the task appear
    prospectively impossible."

    Yeah, The Freshman...

    For some reason I've always liked the unconventional Mobster movies, not the ones played straight.

    The Freshman
    Oscar
    Harlem Nights
    Johnny Dangerously (well, maybe not this one as much).



    Here's a movie trivia quote:

    Note that the quote does not appear in the RELEASED version of the movie, as between the filming and the premiere, the actress delivering the line died in such a manner.

    "What can happen in a plane?"

    Well dang it I'm not gonna cheat and use google. *sigh* So I give up. :cursing:
    So instead here's another quote.

    "Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea. "

    A clue Old school sci fi fans should know this one.

    My Quotes are from "The Freshman" and "To Be or Not to Be" (Carol Lombard's last film - she died in a plane crash while on a war bond drive).

    Yours is easy....

    Woodrow Wilson Smith aka Lazarus Long (author, Robert Heinlein). The Collected Sayings of LL is an interesting place to pull quotes from....

    Like the one that went something like "The meek shall inherit the Earth - or at least a section 1 meter wide, 2 meters long and 2 meters deep."



    Here's another one, for SF movie fans....

    Quote: "I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?" "

    One that requires no guessing, that came from a 90s Christmas Special....

    “After work, Brain, we’ve been invited to a party with the reindeer over at Donner’s!”
    “Somehow, Pinky, I don’t want to be part of any Donner party…”

    Ever hear of an author named John Ringo? some of his books have ties to Sluggy... Especially in books #3 & #4 in the Posleen/Aldenata series of books, where you have a giant tank weighing several kilotons named "Bun-Bun", firing anti-matter-loaded rounds at alien spaceships. In fact, "Hell's Faire" (book 4) has several alternate universe Sluggy strips in it (set as late as 2008 in that book's universe (about 6 years into the war withthe aliens), though Hell's Faire itself was written in 2001-2002).

    Yes, I sure have. I totally Love Ringo's Books. My favorite one is Gust Front.
    One of the most memorable scenes in the book (For me) was with the single
    mother character Shari. When She was at the Target getting supplies for
    her and her two children when the ship landed

    Wait a minute....

    Ok

    Heres a link for you folks out there to a free e book version of it.

    :link:WebScription Ebooks - John Ringo

    Yeah you heard me its a free LEGAL, TOTALLY LEGAL, EBOOK from the
    publishers Baen books. (They give away some of they're books free to
    promote business.) Worked on me, I bought the whole set. And others I tried
    out as well. Theres a whole library check it out folks.

    Anyway I located the section of the book I realllllllly enjoyed. It gave me chills
    So I'm going to do a spoiler "quote" (just a really long one) here of it. Enjoy
    and Live Well.

    * * *
    A note of warning this can be disturbing to some people. Just so that you're
    aware of it. (Frak, it still makes me tear-up)
    ***

    Shari finally made it out of Target, after what seemed like hours and she only
    had half the things she felt like she needed. For once the problem was not
    money. By prior plan on the part of the Target corporation and the Federal
    Emergency Management Agency, the store offered everything for free. One
    person had quipped that that really meant the world was coming to an end.
    The problem was reaching the merchandise.

    Everyone in Fredericksburg seemed to have come to Central Square at once
    and there were fights breaking out everywhere. Twice she was sure she had
    lost Billy in the crowds and even as she fought through the crowds she had
    things snatched from her basket.

    Finally she decided that whatever she had was going to have to do. All of
    her acquisitions were in four shopping bags, three that she carried along with
    the baby and one that Billy lugged. Two boxes of cereal bars, diapers, wipes,
    some bottled water and juice, a few batteries. It was not much to make a
    run for it.

    She heard them saying that the Posleen were coming to Fredericksburg but
    wrapped in her own straitened world she had not assimilated it. As she
    fought through the crowds towards her distant car, the movement and noise
    around her dropped off, the crowd in front of her stopped. She was forced to
    stop as well and looked up with everyone else in the parking lot.

    * * *
    In the east, the sky was on fire. A new sun made up of hundreds of glowing
    red landing craft tight-packed into a giant disk was an eye of Baal
    descending upon the Virginia tidewater. The sight was unreal in the dusky
    afternoon sunshine, a blazing circlet of death picked out among the fleecy
    clouds and the darkening cerulean blue sky.

    Every human in view of the spectacle stood transfixed as the circle grew and
    grew, swelling from a moon-sized ring to a horizon-spanning wall in moments.
    In the time it took to scream, the circle went from a speck to a ring to a
    blazing wall of fire and then snuffed out as the landing craft slowed below
    orbital velocities. As the meteoric reentry slowed, the individual ships could
    be picked out, the twelve-sided polygons of the command craft surrounded
    by their rings of protective landers. Moments later the sonic boom hit.

    The sound was too large to be real, an aural Krakatoa beyond the ability for
    human hearing to accept. Most in the parking lot were driven to their knees
    and many lost their hearing permanently. None were spared.

    * * *

    Shari screamed with everyone else, her hands flying to her ears, for once
    matronly protectiveness being driven out by self-preservation. Billy and the
    other children were writhing on the ground in agony when the crowd began
    to surge. She snatched her children up, overcoming her own pain, dropped
    her hard-won possessions and stumbled into the lee of a truck that, for the
    moment, was stationary.

    The crowd around her broke into riot as everyone individually did whatever
    they thought was the best for themselves. Some tried to get back into the
    stores, some ran for their cars, some, like Shari, huddled in the shelter of
    unmoving vehicles and some began firing randomly into the air. She held her
    babies as the world around her went mad and they screamed in pain and
    fear, from the riot as much as the sonic boom. Her ears ringing madly, she
    cradled her children in the space afforded by the shadow of the truck and
    waited for the panic to subside. Instead it increased, the crowd surging first
    one way and then the other as more shots rang out. She steeled herself to
    look, needing to know the cause of the newest panic and was nearly
    panicked herself as the shadow of an interstellar craft swept across the
    parking lot.

    The lander drifted across the shopping center, like a zeppelin before a
    zephyr, and settled as gently as a dandelion seed onto Salem Church hill.
    The appearance of weightlessness was abruptly dispelled as the titanic craft,
    as tall as a fifteen-story skyscraper, dropped the last few feet.

    As the reverberation of the landing crashed across the crowds, the lower
    fifty feet of the facet facing the parking lot dropped outward with another
    resounding clang. Moments later the Posleen came pouring out, a yellow tide
    of hunting centaurs.

    Virtually every armed human, the vast majority of the immense crowd,
    pointed various weapons at the yellow mass and opened fire.

    Shari on the other hand took one look at the tide of Posleen pouring out of
    the landing craft, put Kelly's left hand in Billy's, picked up the baby, took
    Kelly's right hand and began walking towards town.

    It was not hard. Just stand up, drop everything and go. Like the time that
    Rorie finally got too drunk and crazy. All the other times, the cops would tell
    her to go to the shelter but she stayed. She told them she would know when
    it was time. And it was time. Not hard, just pick the babies up, walk out, get
    in the car and drive. When the time came you just went. Maybe later there
    would be time to go back and pick up all the things you left behind. And
    maybe not. As long as you got away alive and unmaimed that was the thing.

    Just walk away and keep walking. As guns go off on either side, and a high,
    whispery racket goes overhead with a crickety-crack. As a line of giant holes
    suddenly appear in a Jeep ahead of you, and the policeman that was firing
    from behind it flies backwards in a mass of intestines.

    Just keep walking and don't look back, as the crowd tries to pluck your
    babies away faster than the courts, and the chatter of alien voices and
    boom of alien guns comes closer.
    ***

    And this part is from later in the book with the same character.

    Shari stumbled into the crowd behind the Public Safety Building and carefully
    lowered Kelly and Susie to the ground. Billy let go of her skirt and sat down,
    his eyes wide and unseeing. She slumped beside him as the two girls huddled
    into her lap, Susie quietly whimpering from the broken blisters on her feet and
    the sights glimpsed over her mother's shoulder. A woman coming through the
    crowd stopped and stared, then walked over.

    "Are you in the pool?" she asked abruptly.
    Shari looked at her with wide unemotional eyes. It took a long moment to
    register her question. "What?" she croaked.

    "Are you in the basket? Did you enter your name to be drawn?"
    "Drawn for what?" she gasped again, mouth and throat dry from dehydration
    and agonizingly extended fear.
    Finally the woman grasped that Shari was suffering from more than the
    general shock of the loathsome afternoon drawn into evening. "Are you going
    to be all right?"

    Shari started to laugh quietly and the laughs began to segue into sobs.
    Every step she took, from the parking lot to where the Army and police were
    digging in along the interstate, she knew would be their last. Time and again
    she heard the centaurs drawing closer, only to be delayed by some more
    interesting target. When she was forced to pick up Susie, drawing her
    already slow progress to a crawl, she was overcome with the utter certainty
    that her babies were going to die. And from what she had heard behind her it
    was going to be one of the worst of all possible deaths.

    The pain-racked march was a drawn-out nightmare, in which the monsters
    were always just behind you and you knew that at any moment they would
    touch you and then you would die. But this was no nightmare; this was a
    stark reality as the sun set behind her in a blaze of red and she dropped into
    the shadows of Salem Hill to the accompaniment of dying screams.

    The passing matron waved for one of the tending fire fighters as Shari began
    to collapse into hysterics. The EMT came over, readying a dose of Hiberzine.

    "No," said one of the other paramedics. She grabbed Shari by her shoulders
    and forced her to look up. "You have to keep together," she snapped. "We
    need you; we need all the mothers. You're Shari Reilly, right?"

    Shari nodded her head, still unable to stop the sobs. The girls started crying
    softly in response as Billy just sat and rocked, looking into the deepening
    twilight.

    "You came in from Central Park?"
    "Uh-huh," Shari sobbed, unable to catch her breath.
    "All you have to do is hang on until they call your name, okay? It's a lot
    easier than walking from Target to the interstate. We got a call on you. Let
    me see your daughter's feet."

    As the paramedic tended to Susie, Shari slowly got herself under a little
    better control.

    "You're going through a normal reaction," said the medic, soothingly. "You've
    had a shock, Jesus, we all have! But yours was worse. You go through a
    reaction period. You held out until you were here, which is better than most.
    You held it together getting out of the . . . the . . ."

    "Out of hell," said Billy.
    Shari squeezed her son to her. "Are you gonna be okay, baby?"
    "I . . . I . . ."
    "It's okay, baby, we're safe."
    "No, we're not, Mom. Don't lie."
    "Son," said the medic firmly, "the engineers are building the best damn shelter
    they can to protect you, and the rest of us are going to try to make sure
    there's nothing to draw the Posleen in. We're gonna do our level best to save
    you, I promise you that."

    "Is it gonna work?" asked Shari, catching her breath in a pause between
    crying spells.

    "I won't promise anything," said the paramedic honestly. "But it's a better
    chance than without it."

    "Excuse me," said a woman, looming out of the darkness, "somebody said you
    were up at Spotsylvania Mall." The woman's voice caught for a moment. "Did
    you happen to see a man driving," she paused, "driving a hunter green
    Suburban . . ."
    "My husband was a tall man . . ."
    "Did you see . . ."

    The women rose around her, closing in with desperate questions, but the
    paramedic rose over her like an enraged lioness. "Look, people, I know you're
    wondering about your . . . your families, your husbands, but this lady's been
    through enough already . . ."

    "No," said Shari, with a quavering voice, "I have to say it, I have to. . . .
    There was nobody behind me, nobody at all. I'm sorry . . ." She started
    crying again, quietly. "There wasn't anything I could do. I, I, just had to walk
    away, you see? I had to save my babies, I had to walk and keep walking . . .
    There was this little girl . . . she wouldn't come with me and I was carrying
    my babies . . . I couldn't, I couldn't . . ."

    "Shhh," the medic cried into her hair, "it's all right, it is. There's nothing to do . . ."
    "We had to walk," laughed Billy. "We just walked and walked and never ever
    looked back. You can't look back, you just have to walk and walk . . ." He
    began to scream.

    The paramedic leaned over and pressed an injector against his neck. In a
    moment he was out cold.
    "What was that?" Shari snarled, struggling to her feet.
    "Shh, just Hiberzine. He'll sleep quiet. Unfortunately, when he wakes up to
    him it'll be just a moment from now. So before anyone gives him the antidote,
    make sure they know he's not tracking very well. We've put quite a few out."
    The lost wives had faded back into the darkness and another paramedic
    brought over blankets and soup.

    "I put you in the drawing," he said. "The engineers are about to start loading."
    "I wonder how they're doing at the interstate?" said the female paramedic.

    Heck, they even include more books (usually most of the work by one author, and chunks of stuff he or she did as co-author) with some of their hardbacks, and actually ask people to loan out or copy the CDs, as a form of advertising...

    My favorite characters from that series have to be Tommy Sunday and Guano (talk about opposites)... I also liked how Iron Mike found out about his not-dead older daughter, and who her husband was.....

    Heres another one from the 80's from a show that will never ever get the proper DvD release it deserves because of copyright issues.

    Hmm that one is used so often it probably has many sources. (thought of more than once, independently by many people.) But sounds Chinese So I'm going with that.

    Now heres one I like from a TV show that I loved.
    Enjoy

    That's an Ironic choice to follow mine up with....

    Your quote is Londo (Peter Jurasik), to Vir, from Babylon 5.

    My quote was from Tron, which had two actors that would later play Babylon 5 main cast: Bruce Boxleitner (as Tron), and Peter Jurasik (as Crom, the accounting program that Flynn had to fight in the arena, before escaping).

    I do see the irony. When I googled it the attached thumbnail is what I got.
    You can see Tron is like 5th down the list. So its an oft quoted quote.

    Heres another B5 one. (I love B5 quotes, so many many good ones)

    "You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought,
    wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that
    happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great
    comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe."

    Yeah, but I'd say Flynn is quoting John Lennon in the movie, and the others were quoting the movie (it's a rather obscure Lennon quote before it was used in Tron as both a line, and as a song title by Journey on the soundtrack).

    Trivia:

    In the age of 45 RPM single - based jukeboxes, typically special 45s were pressed for the jukeboxes, instead of using the ones sold to consumers. This was done both to keep juke box sales from inflating consumer sales, as well as to maximize band exposure in the jukeboxes. Typically, the song on the "B-side" of the consumer 45 was replaced by another recent hit by the band, usually from the same or previous album, or from a soundtrack album, if they had a single release that wasn't on one of their own albums.

    "Only Solutions" was one of two songs by Journey on the 1982 Tron Soundtrack. It didn't show up on a Journey album until 2006*. It is the song the jukebox is playing in Flynn's Arcade in Tron, when Alan and Lora come to visit him (to see if he's the hacker Dillinger's so worried about).

    "Separate Ways(Worlds Apart)" was from the 1983 album "Frontiers". It is the song that the jukebox is playing in "Tron: Legacy" when Sam Flynn turns the power back on in the arcade. The lyrics almost fit the movie, though the song is actually about the separating of a couple, not father & son.

    When a 45 Jukebox single was created for "Separate Ways" in 1983, the B-side was.... "Only Solutions". So, in effect, we are getting the "flip-side" in Tron: Legacy.

    I actually had a copy of this 45, until someone stole all my records and traded them for drugs, that I bought in a store 25 years ago, that specialized in selling unused/pulled records from jukeboxes.



    * In fact, it was added to the remastered version of "Frontiers" at that time.

    Heres another B5 quote for today.

    "It is said that the future is always born in pain. The history of war is the
    history of pain. If we are wise, what is born of that pain matures into the
    promise of a better world, because we learn that we can no longer afford the
    mistakes of the past."

    "The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are
    seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting.
    Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not
    tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people,
    till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious
    animals, of which the government is the shepherd."

    I always enjoyed this one.

    "Beyond The Doctor I just don't know who I am. I literally do not know who I
    am. So I'm gonna test it. Am I funny? Am I sarcastic? Sexy? Life and misery?
    Life and soul? Right-handed? Left-handed? A gambler? A fighter? A coward? A
    traitor? A lier? A nervous wreck? Judging by the evidence I've certainly got a
    gob. And how am I going to react when I see this: A great big threatening
    button. A great big threatening button which must not be pressed under any
    circumstance. Which leaves us with a great big stinking problem, cause I
    really don't know who I am and I don't know where to stop. So when I see a
    great big threatening button which should never ever ever be pressed, then I
    just want to do this!
    [presses it]"

    Grandpa Fred: Creature what is it that you want?
    Brain Gremlin: Fred, what we want is, I think, what everyone wants, and what you and your viewers have: civilization.
    Grandpa Fred: Yes, but what sort of civilization are you speaking of?
    Brain Gremlin: The niceties, Fred. The fine points: diplomacy, compassion, standards, manners, tradition... that's what we're reaching toward. Oh, we may stumble along the way, but civilization, yes. The Geneva Convention, chamber music, Susan Sontag. Everything your society has worked so hard to accomplish over the centuries, that's what we aspire to; we want to be civilized.
    [a Gremlin with a beanie cap acts goofy next to Brain]
    Brain Gremlin: You take a look at this fellow here. [shoots other gremlin]
    Brain Gremlin: Now, was that civilized? No, clearly not. Fun, but in no sense civilized. Now, bear in mind, none of us has been in New York before. There are the Broadway shows - we'll have to find out how to get tickets. There's also a lot of street crime, but I believe we can watch that for free.

    Benjamin Franklin: I believe that if we are to form a new country, we cannot
    be a country that appears war-hungry and violent to the rest of the world.
    However, we also cannot be a country that appears weak and unwilling to
    fight, to the rest of the world. So, what if we form a country that appears to
    want both.

    Thomas Jefferson: Yes, yes of course, we go to war and protest going to war
    at the same time....

    Benjamin Franklin: And that means that as a nation, we could go to war
    with whomever we wished, but at the same time act like we didn't want to.
    If we allow the people to protest what the government does, then the
    country will be forever blameless.

    John Adams: It's like having your cake and eating it too.

    Anonymous Hick Redneck Founding Father: Think of it: an entire nation
    founded on saying one thing and doing another.

    John Hancock: And we will call that country the United States of America.

    Ok its been a while so heres some new quotes, all from the same source
    but I aint sayin where. Enjoy and Live Well

    'Taxation is just a sophisticated way of demanding money with menaces.'

    "One of the hardest lessons of young Sam's life had been finding out that
    the people in charge weren't in charge. It had been finding out that
    governments were not, on the whole, staffed by people who had a grip, and
    that plans were what people made instead of thinking."

    "What is best in life?"
    "Hot water, good dentistry and soft lavatory paper."

    'Can't argue with the truth, sir.'
    'In my experience, Vimes, you can argue with anything.'

    "It is always useful to face an enemy who is prepared to die for his country,'
    he read. 'This means that both you and he have exactly the same aim in
    mind.'"

    "The omnipotent eyesight of various supernatural entities is often remarked
    upon. It is said that they can see the fall of every sparrow.
    And this may be true. But there is only one who is always there when it hits
    the ground."

    "The truth may be out there, but lies are inside your head."

    'Charity ain't giving people what you wants to give, it's giving people what
    they need to get.'

    "One of the most basic rules of survival on any planet is never to upset
    someone wearing black leather."

    Some of the quotes sounded very familiar, but "Vimes" was a dead giveaway.
