But, let's say it hasn't. What's your favorite line from a movie?

I love the Duke, too. I'm a bit fuzzy on this movie...I know that in "Big Jake," John Wayne said almost the same thing, about four times:

Head Kidnapper: Who are you anyway mister?
JW: Jacob McCandles
HK: *coughing* I thought chu' were dead!

Did they use the same routine in both? Anyone? (not that it would be all that surprising if they did, I just can't remember)

No, it was my mistake and the fact that I haven't gotten to watch any movies I picked in so long, I forgot*. You're right, it was Big Jake I meant. (But I liked both movies. Still, my favorite JW movie is Donovan's Reef", although I can't tell you any of the dialogue.)

A woman after my own heart. A lot of my favorite lines are from the LotR movies as well.

Gimli: "That an elf will go underground when a dwarf dare not? I'll never hear the end of it." ROTK

Legolas (during the drinking game): "I feel something. My fingers are beginning to tingle. I think it's beginning to affect me." (As Gimli passes out onto the floor...) "Game over."

Aragorn: "For Frodo." At the battle in front of the Black Gate in Mordor.

Robin Williams' line at the end of What Dreams May Come: "I found you in hell. You think I can't find you in Jersey?"

"Will...nice hat." -- Captain Jack Sparrow, also in PotC.

There are actually people who hated the Legolas character in the movies. Can you believe that? I am constantly blown away by Orlando's talent. (Looking the way he does I'm sure doesn't hurt, either.)

I just realized I haven't answered my own question yet.

This is from the novel as well as the movie:

I LOVE the whole passage spoken by Gandalf in the first Lord of the Rings. It's something like: "So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us." GREAT!


My son really likes a line at the end of the movie, Cellular.
