Another Doctor Who one. In one story, Davros has installed himself as a famous doctor, curing all sorts of diseases at a suspended animation repository. In truth, he has turned many of those present into Daleks, and the others he used as a form of protein concentrate to resolve a famine in that part of the galaxy. The Doctor, naturally horrified, asks Davros is he told those who enjoyed his protein concentrate whether they were eating their own dead relatives. Davros' reply is priceless:

Davros: Certainly not! That would have created what I believe is termed 'consumer resistance'.

All good ones!

Jurassic Park had quite a lot of good lines.

There were some great lines in The Big Lebowski, but it's been so long since I've seen it. I'll have to watch it again soon.

I think there is a brilliant one liner in every Dr Who episode ever made.....

And can we even venture NEAR Red Dwarf?.... :lol: :lol: :lol:


Lister : Kyrton, go to blue alert
Kyrton : are you sure sir, it means I will have to change the bulb :lol:

AND of course........... too many to list for Blackadder... that show was just a compliation of acting around one liners.

Another from Blake's 7:

Avon: (Upon hearing that Blake intends to attack the Terra Nostra, after they betrayed a potential alliance, via their source of the Shadow drug) Oh, yes of course. Law makers, law breakers, let us fight them all. Why not?

Clint Eastwood can be pretty good ;)

In Gran Torino: Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn't have f*cked with? That's me.

From the Outlaw Josey Wales:
Josey Wales: You a bounty hunter?
Bounty hunter: A man's got to do something for a living these days.
Josey Wales: Dyin' ain't much of a living, boy.
On lofty Beysitoun the lingering sun looks down on ceaseless labors, long begun.
