Yep WA - Life of Brian is chock full of goodies. :lol:

I think the most memorable one though is when Brian begins to acquire some followers and ends up in bed with the lady freedom-fighter? He wakes up and pulls the curtain at the window and appears starkers before his fan club who then start to cheer him etc - Mum (Terry Jones) get all cross with the racket and comes out with the ultimate put down for any aspiring Son of God...

And of course there's also plenty in The holy grail, like this one
"King Arthur: [after Arthur's cut off both of the Black Knight's arms] Look, you stupid Bastard. You've got no arms left.
Black Knight: Yes I have.
King Arthur: *Look*!
Black Knight: It's just a flesh wound." :lol:

I can also name the classics like
"Well, do you feel lucky...punk?" Dirty Harry

"I'll be back" (said with strong accent) The Terminator

" Jippi kayeah motherfucker!!!" Die Hard

"Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" Gone with the wind

"Houston, we have a problem" Apollo 13

Oh, I have so many....but most are from television, rather than movies.

The one that springs to mind first is from Futurama - "Fry and the Slurm Factory". When I heard this, I laughed so hard Slurm came out of my nose.

Professor Hubert Farnsworth: Who are those horrible orange creatures over there?
Glurmo: Why, those are the Grunka-Lunkas. They work here in the Slurm factory.
Professor Hubert Farnsworth: Tell them I hate them.

I'm not a religious man, but if I were I'd pray like this...

"Crom! I've never prayed to you before, I have no tongue for it. No-one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad, why we fought or how we died... All that matters is that two stood against many. That's what matters, that's what's important... Battle pleases you Crom, so grant me one request. Grant me revenge!... And if you do not listen, then THE HELL WITH YOU!"

From Conan the Barbarian, one of only three highlights in the Governator's career, the others being The Terminator and Terminator 2.

Firefly just contains entirely too many wonderful quotes to not end up posting a couple of pages worth of them, so from Serenity...

" [As Serenity begins a fiery dive into atmosphere, a panel on the bow breaks off, flying over the cockpit's viewport]
Mal: What was that?
Wash: Did you see that?
Mal: Was that the primary buffer panel?
Wash: It did seem to resemble—
Mal: Did the primary buffer panel just fall off my gorram ship for no apparent reason?
[Serenity shudders.]
Wash: Looks like.
Mal: I thought Kaylee just checked the entry couplings. I have a very clear memory of it!
Wash: Yeah well, if she doesn't give us some extra flow from the engine room to offset the burn-through, this landing is going to get pretty interesting.
Mal: Define interesting!
Wash: [deadpan] "Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die"?
Mal: [on the ship intercom] This is the captain, we have a lil' problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight…turbulence, and then…explode. [to Wash] Can you shave the vector?
Wash: I'm doing it! It's not enough.
Mal: Just get us on the ground!
Wash: That part will happen pretty definitely. "
