There are so many great lines in Casablanca

One of my favorites is Claude Rains "I'm shocked, shocked that gambling is going on in this establishment!" - followed by a waiter handing him money, saying "Your winnings, Inspector."

Not actually one line, but it's an awesome, laconic line nonetheless from a comic that should be a TV series. Spider Jerusalem is defending a young man from a group of fundamentalists who want to stone him because said young man watched a porn film with his girlfriend. Spider pulls out his trademark weapon, and asks the fundamentalists if they know what it is. They don't, and his response is excellent:

"This is a bowel disruptor. And you are SO full of sh**." :lol: :D

I know you gentlemen have been through a lot, but when you find the time, I'd rather not spend the rest of this winter tied to this -ing chair!

A line that impressed me deeply and 'nicely' shows the insanities of war is from Apocalypse Now.
"We train young men to drop fire on people,but their commanders won't allow them to right f*ck on their aeroplanes...because...it's obscene!"
Marlon Brando did the voice very well at least. :D
To stay in the gin-joint :roll: arena i always got a laugh out of :

Michael Caine in The Italian Job - the classic "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!"
and I'm also fond of "You lost him his no-claims bonus!" (after the Mafia had bulldozed his sports cars down the side of a cliff)
and the final line "Hold on lads - I think I've got an idea... err..."

This one's from a video game (Kingdom Hearts II), but it's spoken by Christopher Lee. Not an awesome line, but a rather cruel line that says a lot about the character, when another character (the character you're playing as) tells him he has a right to know about things.

DiZ: A Nobody doesn't have a right to know. Nor does it even have the right to be.

Luke Skywalker, unarmed, captured, handcuffed, walking the plank over a bottomless pit: "This is your last chance Jabba: surrender now or face the consequences!"

(or words to that effect)

Darth Vader: "I find your lack of faith... disturbing."

And how can we forget the oldie but goodie, Hannibal Lecter dismissing Clarice Starling's attempts to quantify his madness:

Hannibal: A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
