I'm guilty of it myself, but people really need to read the thread before they post.

Man, I could have sworn that wasn't posted already. Well, fuck, it's one of my favorite, and Steve's too.

I forget if the last line is "Yes, you can dream now, I think we both can" or "Affirmative", but either way, good stuff.

I was going to go with Memories of Murder, but Rath beat me to it. I don't think this one's been mentioned, which is surprising considering the other great endings of 2007 seem to have all been covered.

"There would be no eulogies for Bob, no photographs of his body would be sold in sundry stores, no people would crowd the streets in the rain to see his funeral cortege, no biographies would be written about him, no children named after him, no one would ever pay 25 cents to stand in the rooms he grew up in."

"Hello, Bob."

"The shotgun would ignite, and Ella Mae would scream, but Robert Ford would only lay on the floor and look at the ceiling, the light going out of his eyes, before he could find the right words."

"That was the everlasting moment he had been waiting for. And the moment had passed, for Monica was sound asleep. More than merely asleep. Should he shake her she would never rouse. So David went to sleep too. And for the first time in his life, he went to that place where dreams are born."

September 28th, 1997. It is exactly 11am. At the funfair, near the ghost train, the marshmallow twister is twisting. Meanwhile, on a bench in Villette Square, Félix Lerbier learns there are more links in his brain than atoms in the universe. Meanwhile, at the Sacré Coeur, the nuns are practicing their backhand. The temperature is 24°C, humidity 70%, atmospheric pressure 990 millibars.

This is a favorite of mine. Kinda like the Watership Down one from earlier, it makes my heart hurt just reading it.

"You better bury Ned right!... Better not cut up, nor otherwise harm no whores... or I'll come back and kill every one of you sons of bitches."

And then the ending crawl:

And there was nothing on the marker to explain to Mrs. Feathers why her only daughter had married a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition.

I feel like we should just start responding to every reposting line in this thread with "Way of the future..."

"And just as I was climbing into that first-class seat, and wrapping myself in a blanket, just as I was adjusting my pillow behind my head, and having a sip of that champagne, and just as I was bringing down and adjusting my Thai purple sleep mask... I had an inkling, I had a flash... I suddenly thought I knew what it was that had killed Marilyn Monroe... "

Which is also a variation on the last line of The Searchers, which I don't think has been quoted in this thread.

Also, get out of my head, Jonathan Banks. That Munich one is great.

Has nobody really quoted The Thing? Surprising.

Well here goes:

"The mediator between head and the hands must be the heart!"

"Sure, I coulda stayed in the past. I could've even been king! But in my own way, I am king. Hail to the king, baby!”


"I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was 12 ... Jesus, does anyone?”


"Oh, hey! wait a - hey! stop it! hey, you're messing up my hair! Come on! whoa whoa! stop it! Whoa! ... Hey, this might be a good look for me...”


"I think we oughta leave now..."
"That's probably a good idea."

EDIT: Almost forgot!

"KEVIN! WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY ROOM?!"

"No."
What's this from? I can't place it and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere, but I know I've seen the movie. Seriously, could you guys write the name of the film you're quoting?

Munich
post #239 of 326
"Forget the Alamo."--Lone Star

"Tom Mix wept"--Tombstone

I know there's a newsreport that comes on and gives some finishing exposition after this, but themeatically and for all intent and purposes:

"Look at this. Look at what they make you give." --The Bourne Ultimatum

ETA: Although, the line about Bourne's body not being discovered, followed by Julia Stile's smile is pretty boss also.

"And oh, Danny fell! Round and round and round and round, like a penny whirlygig! Twenty thousand miles, for it took him half an hour to fall, before he struck the rocks. And do you know what they did to Peachy? They crucified him, sir-- between two pine trees-- as Peachy's hands will show. Poor, poor Peachy, who'd never done them any harm! He just hung there, and he screamed, but he didn't die. And the next day they come, and they took him down, and they said it was... a miracle he wasn't dead, and they let him go. And Peachy come home, in about a year. And the mountains, they tried to fall on old Peachy, but he was quite safe because... Daniel walked before him. And Daniel never let go of Peachy's hand, and Peachy never let go of Daniel's head. You knew Danny, sir? You knew that most worshipful brother, Daniel Dravot, Esquire? Well, he became a king of Kafiristan, with a crown on his head, and that's all there is to tell. I'll be on my way now, sir-- I've got urgent business in the South. I have to meet a man at Mowhar Junction..."

"I've been around this block twice now. Looking for something. A clue. I've been looking for clues and something led me back here. Yeah. So here I am. It could have been me, the one who was at Ringo's place when the shit went down. Hey. I know how it is. I've been there. We've all done bad things. We've all had those guilty feelings in our heart. I'm going to take your brain out of your head and wash it and scrub it and make it clean. I don't know. But I'm going to have to settle this. First we're going to check the hole and see what we can find. We're going to get nice and wet, and you're going to spread your legs. Oh, that's good. So you know me. You know my reputation. Thirteen inches of tough load, I don't treat you gently. That's right. I'm Brock Landers. So I'm going to be nice. So I'm going to be nice. So I'm going to be nice, I'm going to ask you one more time. Where the fuck is Ringo? I am a star. I'm a star, I'm a star, I'm a star. I am a big, bright, shining star... That's right."

Surprised this has been missed, but maybe it's too much of a parochial choice...

"Hang on lads; I've got a great idea..." (The Italian Job)

and another fave

"Drink up, me hearties. Yo ho" (One of the Pirates movies - I can never remember which though, oddly. It's not the line so much as the way Depp delivers it in a slightly off balance way. Almost syncopated.)
