Favourite one liners

Postby spideyGirl » Sun Feb 19, 2012 9:33 am

Not sure if this has been done before but was watching Jurassic Park the other day and I just love this line... what are your favs?

While challenging John Hammond about raising dinosaurs from the dead.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could that they didn't stop to think if they should. [Jurassic Park] :D

Eric Morecambe looking out of the flat's window as a Police siren is heard:

Eric Morecambe: "He won't sell many ice creams going at that speed!"

I always say that when an ambulance goes past with its sirens going. I say it even if I'm alone. :lol:

No no no no, this one. After Hammond mentions that even Disney had problems.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but when the Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down the pirates don't EAT the tourists.

The perfect comeback to anyone who says that they are entitled to their opinion, from Blake's 7:

Avon: It is your assumption that we are ALL entitled to it that is irritating.

Avon's always good for one-liners and comebacks. :twisted:

Another Eric Morecambe one to Andre Previn;
