Yeah, the Gandalf/Pippin conversation were some of my favorite movie quotes for a while.

At the risk of citing the same movie repeatedly, it should be noted that also awesome is Gandalf and Pippin before speaking with Denethor "...in fact, it's probably better if you just don't speak at all." Gandalf was pretty constantly awesome throughout that trilogy.

Ian McKellen is probably the best thing that happened to movies since microphones were invented.

And no, those quotes would not mean just as much had they come from a different actor.

From two of my favorite action movies:

"This is the '90s. You don't just go around punching people. You have to say something cool first."

Leather pants.
Yeah.
What's something like that run?
Six-fifty.
Six hundred and fifty dollars?
Yeah.
They're pants.
Yeah.
You wear them?
YES.
They don't, like, have a TV in them or something?
Nope.

Well played. For my money, The Last Boyscout nudges out Die Hard almost every time. Bruce Willis should be contractually obligated to do a jig at the end of every one of his movies.

One of the creepiest moments from the best science fiction movie I've seen in a while:

Abe: What's wrong with our hands?
Aaron: [has his arms tightly wrapped around his chest, his hands tight under his armpits] What do you mean?
Abe: [almost shouting] Why can't we write like normal people?
Aaron: [quietly] I don't know. I can see the letters... I know what they should look like, I just can't get my hand to make them easily.
[Abe is rocking back and forth against the desk; Aaron is quietly jittering]
Abe: Try comparing it to your left hand.
Aaron: It's almost the same.

Last Boyscout was the first script to be sold for over a million dollars. It edges out Die Hard for gloriously over-the-top awesome, but Die Hard is still the better movie, in my opinion.

Though merely quoting it doesn't do it justice, you have to hear it. There is a passion and ferocity in Newman's voice it's quite amazing, but here are some quotes from one of my absolute favorties, The Hustler. It's a movie I still get chills watching, the one quote is pretty long.

Fast Eddie: Cause, ya see, twice, Sarah... once at Ames with Minnesota Fats and then again at Arthur's, in that cheap, crummy pool room, now why'd I do it, Sarah? Why'd I do it? I coulda beat that guy, coulda beat 'im cold, he never woulda known. But I just hadda show 'im. Just hadda show those creeps and those punks what the game is like when it's great, when it's REALLY great. You know, like anything can be great, anything can be great. I don't care, BRICKLAYING can be great, if a guy knows. If he knows what he's doing and why and if he can make it come off. When I'm goin', I mean, when I'm REALLY goin' I feel like a... like a jockey must feel. He's sittin' on his horse, he's got all that speed and that power underneath him... he's comin' into the stretch, the pressure's on 'im, and he KNOWS... just feels... when to let it go and how much. Cause he's got everything workin' for 'im: timing, touch. It's a great feeling, boy, it's a real great feeling when you're right and you KNOW you're right. It's like all of a sudden I got oil in my arm. The pool cue's part of me. You know, it's uh - pool cue, it's got nerves in it. It's a piece of wood, it's got nerves in it. Feel the roll of those balls, you don't have to look, you just KNOW. You make shots that nobody's ever made before. I can play that game the way... NOBODY'S ever played it before.

and also

Fast Eddie: Because you were right. It's not enough to have talent. You gotta have character, too. Four ball. Yeah, I sure got character now. I picked it up in a hotel room in Louisville.

I can't believe it took so long for someone to say this.
More Dr. Strangelove;
Spoiler:
General Turgidson on the phone in the War Room: Well, look baby, I can't, can't talk to you now, but... My president needs me. Of course Bucky would rather be there with you. Of course it isn't only physical! I deeply respect you as a human being! Someday I'm gonna make you Mrs. Buck Turgidson! Listen, you go back to sleep. Bucky'll be back there just as soon as he can. All right? Listen, sug', don't forget to say your prayers.

The President on the phone to the Russian Premier: Hello? Uh, hello? Hello, Dmitri? Listen, I can't hear too well, do you suppose you could turn the music down just a little?

General Ripper: A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual, and certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works. I first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love...Yes, a profound sense of fatigue, a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I-I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence. I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women, er, women sense my power, and they seek the life essence. I do not avoid women, Mandrake...but I do deny them my essence.

The President: General Turgidson, I find this very difficult to understand. I was under the impression that I was the only one in authority to order the use of nuclear weapons.
Turgidson: That's right sir. You are the only person authorized to do so. And although I hate to judge before all the facts are in, it's beginning to look like General Ripper exceeded his authority.


The Big Lebowski (the whole film is worth quoting, of course):

Bunny: I'll suck your cock for a thousand dollars.

Jesus Quintana: Let me tell you something, pendejo. You pull any of your crazy shit with us, you flash your piece out on the lane... I take it away from you, stick it up your ass and pull the trigger 'til it goes... "click".
The Dude: Jesus.
Jesus: You said it man. Nobody fucks with the Jesus.
Walter: Eight-year-olds, dude.

Walter: What the fuck are you talking about? The Chinaman is not the issue here, Dude! I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, you DO NOT... Also, Dude, Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.

Walter: Do you see what happens, Larry, WHEN YOU FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS? THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS!

Maude: What do you do for recreation?
The Dude: Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback.

Policeman: In the briefcase?
The Dude: Oh, you know, papers. Just papers. Business papers.
Policeman: And what do you do, sir?
The Dude: ...I'm unemployed.

Walter: Smokie, this is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules.

Walter: Shut the fuck up, Donny.

Jesus: What's this day of rest shit? What's this bullshit? I don't fuckin' care! It don't matter to Jesus. But you're not foolin' me, man. You might fool the fucks in the league office, but you don't fool Jesus. This bush league psyche-out stuff. Laughable, man - ha ha! I would have fucked you in the ass Saturday. I fuck you in the ass next Wednesday instead. Wooo! You got a date Wednesday, baby!

Walter: Am I wrong?
The Dude: No, you're not wrong-
Walter: Am I wrong?!
The Dude: No, you're not wrong, Walter, you're just an asshole!

The Dude: By the way, do you think that you could give me that $20,000 in cash? My concern is, and I have to, uh, check with my accountant, that this might bump me into a higher, uh, tax bracket.

Although technically a radio series and not a movie, still a worthy addition:

Arthur Dent: It's at times like these that I wish I'd listened to what my mother said.
Ford Prefect: Why? What did she say?
Arthur Dent: I don't know, I never listened!

Although the film did have a pretty entertaining line too:

Arthur Dent: Ford?
Ford Prefect: Yes, Arthur?
Arthur Dent: I think I'm a sofa.
Ford Prefect: I know how you feel.

While not my favorite movie ever...this scene/quote made me LOL:

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

The Book: It is important to note that suddenly, and against all probability, a Sperm Whale had been called into existence, several miles above the surface of an alien planet and since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity. This is what it thought, as it fell:
The Whale: Ahhh! Woooh! What's happening? Who am I? Why am I here? What's my purpose in life? What do I mean by who am I? Okay okay, calm down calm down get a grip now. Ooh, this is an interesting sensation. What is it? Its a sort of tingling in my... well I suppose I better start finding names for things. Lets call it a... tail! Yeah! Tail! And hey, what's this roaring sound, whooshing past what I'm suddenly gonna call my head? Wind! Is that a good name? It'll do. Yeah, this is really exciting. I'm dizzy with anticipation! Or is it the wind? There's an awful lot of that now isn't it? And what's this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like 'Ow', 'Ownge', 'Round', 'Ground'! That's it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it'll be friends with me? Hello Ground!
[dies]
The Book: Curiously the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias, as it fell, was, 'Oh no, not again.' Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly *why* the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.
Life is "trying things to see if they work".
