    Movie-Man on Fire
    Actor Denzell Washington

    Denzells character is about to blow up a car from some old peoples apartment. The old people ask Denzell before he fires his weapon if he believes in forgiveness. Denzell answers them with this line.

    "Forgiveness is between them and God. It's up to me to arrange the meeting."

    William Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!

    I forget which Cheech & Chong movie it is in, but there's a scene where they see a dog cleaning his private parts.

    Cheech says, "man, I wish I could do that."

    Chong replies, "you better pet him first. He might be mean."

    Reminds me of an old joke:

    Two good ole boys are watching Univ of Georgia play on a hot afternoon. One of them sees UGA licking himself and says "Man I wish I could do that". The other one looks at him and says "Man that dog'll bite you".

    I can't decide between three of them but they are from one film, perhaps my favorite of all time, "Lonesome Dove".

    I guess if i have to choose one then i will go with this one. It a lot more dramatic and poignant when you watch the movie. It might not translate into text very well, but i will try.

    -Captain Woodrow F. Call (Tommy Lee Jones) & Gus (Robert Duvall) chase down a band of thiefs and murderers, and after the brief showdown and they had the thiefs under control, Captian Call leaves the group, at which time one of the thiefs asks Gus,

    "Where is he going?"

    Gus replies, "To pick out a tree to hang you from, son".

    Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

    I get it.

    Good choice.

    There are so many memorable lines from that miniseries. I was going to post some, but there are just too many.

    Yeah, i could've easily picked half a dozen or so, there are just way too many.

    The other one i was going to post was the one where Captain Coll beats a guy half to death because he was hitting Newt in an attempt to confiscate his horse for the army, and right before Captain Coll rides off he says, "I hate to see rude behavior in a man, I just won't tolerate it."

    My favorites are Gus' philosphical lines.

    Jake: "A plank wall won't stop no 50 caliber bullet."
    Gus: "But a dentist will."
    Jake: "Dropped him dead."
    Gus: "Well, nobody likes a dentist anyway."

    Woodrow: "If you ever get tired of loafing, I guess you could get a job waitin' tables."
    Gus: "I had a job waitin' tables once. I wasn't no older than Newt there. But I had to give it up."
    Newt: "What happened?"
    Gus: "Well, I was too young and pretty ... and the whores wouldn't let me alone."

    Gus: "Wanz, put that rag down. Hell, the people that come in here wouldn't notice a dead skunk on the table, much less a few crumbs."

    Woodrow (to Newt): "You best go on to bed."
    Gus: "Let the boy stay up awhile. His best chance at an education is listening to me talk."
    Woodrow: "What kind of education is that?"
    Gus: "You reckon he'll learn more shoveling horse poop for you?"

    Milton Waddams: [talking on the phone] And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...

    Milton Waddams: Excuse me? Excuse me, senor? May I speak to you please? I asked for a mai tai, and they brought me a pina colada, and I said no salt, NO salt for the margarita, but it had salt on it, big grains of salt, floating in the glass...
    Mexican Waiter: Lo siento mucho, senor.
    [Under his breath]
    Mexican Waiter: Pinche gringo.
    Milton Waddams: [as the waiter walks away] And yes, I won't be leaving a tip, 'cause I could... I could shut this whole resort down. Sir? I'll take my traveler's checks to a competing resort. I could write a letter to your board of tourism and I could have this place condemned. I could put... I could put... strychnine in the guacamole. There was salt on the glass, BIG grains of salt.


    Nina: Now Milton, don't be greedy, let's pass it along and make sure everyone gets a piece.
    Milton Waddams: Yeah, but last time I didn't receive a piece. And I was told...
    Nina: Just pass.
    Milton Waddams: The ratio of people to cake is too big.
    [while the cake passes Milton mutters - eventually everybody but Milton gets a piece]
    Milton Waddams: [muttering] I could set the building on fire.

    Milton Waddams: Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler...

    Private William Hudson (Bill Paxton) from Aliens: "Maybe you haven't been paying attention pal, but we just got our ***** kicked."

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn

    Captain Spock (Leonard Nimoy): "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one, or the few."

    Lieutenant Saavik to Captain Kirk: "Sir, may I ask you how you dealt with the Kobyashi Maru scenario?"
    Dr. McCoy: "Lieutenant, you're looking at the only cadet to have ever beaten the no-win scenario."
    Captain Kirk: "I changed the conditions of the test so it was possible to rescue the ship. I reprogrammed the simulator."
    Lieutenant Saavik: "What?!"
    Dr. Marcus: "He cheated."
    Captain Kirk: "I don't believe in the no-win scenario."

    Many great quotes from Braveheart... one of my favorites is:

    "All men die, not all men really live."

    Ahhh....gotcha. :D

    That's a great one.

    I love movies like Braveheart, but a little part of me always gets pissed that my life isn't like that. The one decision that could've changed that is now out of reach, and all you're stuck with is "what if's".

    Great choice though.
