Okay, I know this isn't a one-liner, but I just can't stop laughing, and he does just kinda of say it all at once so, I'm starting things off with The Other Guys. This line comes from Will Ferrell's character:

“Ok, first off, a lion? Swimming in the ocean? Lions don’t like water! If you placed it near a river or some sort of fresh water source, that makes sense. But you find yourself in the ocean, 20 foot waves (I’m assuming it’s off the coast of South Africa). Going up against a full grown 800-pound tuna with his 20 or 30 friends? You lose that battle. You lose that battle 9 times out of 10. Well guess what? You’ve wandered into a school of tuna and we now have a taste of lion! We’ve talked to ourselves. We’ve communicated. And I said, ‘You know what?! Lion tastes good! Lets go get some more lion!’ We’ve developed a system: to establish a beachhead and to aggressively hunt you and your family. And we will corner you and your, your pride, your children.”

My husband suggested Hamlet 2 for "I feel like I've been raped...in the face!" If you haven't seen the movie, don't jump to any conclusions, he's not trying to be insensitive to any actual survivors out there. It's a great movie to watch when you start getting rejection letters, IMHO.

What line gets you every time? Or what line made you spit soda laced with Jim out your nose?

Okay, what is that from? It's made of win.

No idea what movie it is, but Jeff Bridges is the guy and it's probably from the late 70s.

My mom watched it with me and the kids once. She is really into SF&F films. I asked what she thought and she said there was too much cussing.

I told her, "Well mom, gosh darn-it just doesn't work as well in that particular situtation," and she agreed.

Perhaps we should distinguish between inherently good (well-written) lines, and lines that are only memorable because of their specific context. Or not.

Here's a good one:
A brass unicorn has been catapulted across a London street and impaled an eminent surgeon. Words fail me, gentlemen.

From the movie Step Brothers, spoken by the new stepson (aged 38 and still living at home with mom) to his new stepdad:

"Hey, you're embarrassing yourself, you geriatric f**k!"

For some reason, this line still makes me laugh.

Edited to add:

From Animal House:

"Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son."

Pacha (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000422/): Uh-oh.
Kuzco (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005450/): Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.
Pacha (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000422/): Yep.
Kuzco (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005450/): Sharp rocks at the bottom?
Pacha (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000422/): Most likely.
Kuzco (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005450/): Bring it on.

Or the planet behind that ship. It might go off into deep space and hit somebody else in ten thousand years. If you pull the trigger on this, you are ruining someones day! That is why you check your targets. That is why you wait for the computer to give you a damn firing solution. That is why, Serviceman Chung, we do not "eyeball it". This is a weapon of mass destruction. You are not a cowboy shooting from the hip!

Zoe: "Big damn heroes, sir."

Mal: "Cut her down."

Villager: "The girl is a witch."

Mal: "Yeah, but she's our witch-" (cocks gun, points it at him) "-so cut her the hell down."
*
River: "So we'll integrate non-progressional evolution theory with God's creation of Eden. Eleven inherent metaphoric parallels already there. Eleven. Important number. Prime number. One goes into the house of eleven eleven times, but always comes out one.

Zoe: "Preacher, don't the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killing?
Book: "Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps."
*
River: My food is problematic.
*
River: I tore these out of your symbol and they became paper.
*
River: "Also? I can kill you with my brain."
*
Wash: "Little River just gets more colorful by the moment. What'll she do next?"
Zoe: "Either blow us all up or rub soup in our hair. It's a toss-up."

*
Wash: "How did your brain even learn human speech? I'm just so curious."


*
Wash: "Psychic, though? That sounds like something out of science fiction."
Zoe: "We live in a space ship, dear.

*
Mal: "This is the captain. We have a...little problem with our engine sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then...explode."
*
Zoe: "You know what the definition of a hero is? Someone who gets other people killed. You can look it up later."

Lucius Washington (http://www.absolutewrite.com/name/nm0003817/): You're not gonna live forever.
Ricky Bobby (http://www.absolutewrite.com/name/nm0002071/): No one lives forever, no one. But with advances in modern science and my high level income, it's not crazy to think I can live to be 245, maybe 300. Heck, I just read in the newspaper that they put a pig heart in some guy from Russia. Do you know what that means?

I'm putting A LOT of my eggs into that basket, the MTV basket. I'm also thinking about getting a gun, and dealing crack. Being a crack dealer. Not like a mean crack dealer, but like... like a nice one. Kinda friendly like, "hey, what's up guys? Want some crack?" I'm just waiting on those two things to flesh themselves out.

"A lot of folks don't like you, boss. I expect some of these mornings when I come to get you outta the bed, I'll have to pull the sheet up instead of down." Willie Best to Bob Hope, The Ghost Breakers

"I am not only walking out on this case, Mr. Whiteside, I am leaving the nursing profession. I became a nurse because all my life, ever since I was a little girl, I was filled with the idea of serving a suffering humanity. After one month with you , Mr. Whiteside, I am going to work in a munitions factory. From now on , anything I can do to help exterminate the human race will fill me with the greatest of pleasure. If Florence Nightingale had ever nursed YOU, Mr. Whiteside, she would have married Jack the Ripper instead of founding the Red Cross!" Mary Wickes to Monty Wooley, The Man Who Came to Dinner

"Walter, you're wonderful, in a loathsome sort of way." Rosalind Russell to Cary Grant, His Girl Friday

"Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock. So long Holly." Orson Welles to Joseph Cotten, The Third Man

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

The Dude: "Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback."

Star Trek: First Contact:

This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGF1NP-FrCU) is hardly a one-liner, but it is my favourite quote from a movie ever.

Lily Sloane: "Jean-Luc, blow up the damn ship!"
Picard: "NO! Noooooooooooooo!" He breaks the display case with gun. "I will not sacrifice the Enterprise. We've made too many compromises already; too many retreats. They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done."

What he'd done was sneaky, rotten, and low... and cool. Not another one among us would have ever in a million years even for a million dollars have the guts to put the moves on the lifeguard. He did.
