Here is a game for you all: famous lines from movies, where the movie itself sucked.

My favorite: Godfather 3. "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. "

"Hit pay-dirt with K-Dirt!"
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

From the (awful) movie "Van Helsing".

The only good line in the show: "Why does it smell like wet dog in here?"

The reference was to a werewolf which had - during a rainstorm - invaded a home, and then left. The comic-relief protagonist later enters the home, unaware that a damp werewolf had been in the home, and delivers the line.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

"I am your father, Luke. Give in to the dark side of the force, you knob."--Strange Brew
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

That's only an unmemorable film where you come from, it's legendary here Smile


"To be, or not to be..." (huge explosion as he lights a cigar) "Not to be."
-Arnold Schwarzenegger as Jack Slater as Hamlet in Last Action Hero

Actually, I love that entire clip:
"Hamlet: Hey Claudius! You killed my father! Big mistake!
Narrator: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, and Hamlet is taking out the trash.
Old Man: Stay thy hand, fair prince.
Hamlet: [shooting him] Who said I'm fair?
Narrator: No one is going to tell this sweet prince good night.
Hamlet: To be or not to be? Not to be."

Same film contained another of my favorite exchanges:
"Danny Madigan: You think you are funny, don't you?
Jack Slater: I know I am. I'm the famous comedian Arnold Braunschweiger."

Underrated movie.

"Bell: Anyone who can't get along with the others has to sit twenty feet away by themselves for an hour.
Swan: That's a good idea. It gives you a chance to cool down when things get steamed up.
Bell: Exactly.
Miller: You've gotta be kidding me."

Later,
"Bell: Now, listen, we've got a long journey ahead of us. It's important that we all get along. Now, you're hurting people's feelings. You're gonna have to find a more constructive way to express your anger.
Miller: Okay, well **** you! How's that for constructive?
Bell: That's great. Now go to time out mister.
Swan: We warned you."

And,
"Humphrey: Oh, Stop!
Noon: That's sick.
Frenchy: I agree. Nutter, you were singing in the wrong key!
Nutter: No I wasn't. It was Loutzenheiser. I was singing in Eb minor.
Frenchy: The song's in F# major!
Bell: I think they're the same thing. I mean, Eb is the relative minor of F#.
Frenchy: No, it isn't. The relative minor is 3 half-tones down from the major, not up!
Noon: No, it's 3 down. Like A is the relative minor of C major.
Loutzenheiser: But isn't A# in C major?
Bell: Wait, are you singing mixolydian scales, or something?
Frenchy: A# is tonic to C major. It's the 6!
Humphrey: No it isn't!
Swan: Well, it'd be like a raised 13th if anything.
Frenchy: Oh well. You guys are just a bunch of loser diggers anyhow!
Humphrey: Oh see. You know we're right!"
This is even funnier in the context of the film.

All from Cannibal; The Musical

This is not an unmemorable film though. It's a great film that not enough people know about. One of my favorites.

UNFAIR! Plan Nine is a thread... Hell, a WEBSITE of its own in quotes!
If you ever get to a point where words have no meaning, you're probably talking to a dog.

Ha! Maybe I've fallen into the trap of underrating the product from home.

You're right, of course. But since the topic is about memorable quotes from bad movies, it would have been a shame to overlook Ed Wood's treasure trove of material.

(Oh, wait, the topic is about unmemorable movies. Plan 9 doesn't really qualify, then, as it is anything but forgettable. It was so bad it will live in film buff's memories forever.)

Good thoughts,

Bob

Ed Wood's "Orgy of the Dead"

Can't remember the lines, but the Mummy is talking to the Wolfman about how it was back in old Egypt, and how those were the 'good old days'. This was my first Ed Wood movie and I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I mean, Criswell's intro as he read the cue cards was bad enough, but this.... Smile

"Tracy: Do you know you have an animal growing out of your pants?
Dooley: Thanks, hon. I also have a dog here."
The completely forgettable Jim Belushi in K-9

"$97.51? Is that pesos? This is for a dog. $97.51? I'm not gonna eat this stuff. Did I buy a smoked salmon - $97.51?"
The much-better Tom Hanks in Turner & Hooch, aka the same *** movie at the same *** time.

"Veronica: In a church? I couldn't possibly!
Nun: Why not, child?
Veronica: I would surely combust!"
Dark Angel: The Ascent (not related to the television show Dark Angel.)

From the same movie:
"Policeman with Club: How would you like to spend the night in jail on a prostitution charge?
Veronica: How would you like to die in a state of mortal sin?"
