Something to distract us from the farce of 21st century world politics. Lines that stuck you from either books or cinema/T.V.

From "The Plainsman". Mr. Cooper as Wild Bill: "You'll leave town when dead men can walk" loved it. Mike

What do you do for a living?
I knock people down
So, how does it feel to knock someone down? (Sarcastic)
It makes me feel a lot better than it does him.

Some movies glorify the insignificant moment of something simple like a handshake or a cat walking across the floor. The more simple the better. A simple action can be more significant than the last words or dialog. If the set up for the smallest act is done correctly, it can be very tear jerking.

People think it's hard to do the right thing.

It's not hard to do the right thing.

It's hard to know what the right thing is.

But once you know what the right thing is, it's hard not to do it.

(From the 1999 movie The Confession, starring Ben Kingsley)

My all time fav... "He says, "Good idea."" Never Cry Wolf (the movie), after the Innu Elder comments at length about Tyler's experiment eating lemmings. One of the best movies I have ever seen, if only for the cinematography.

Lindsay Crouse's (Nurse Caitlín Costello) "because I kept a copy of the report", when her account of the damaging operation was questioned, in Paul Newman's 'The Verdict' does it for me every time.
Same film - the jury foreman asking biased Judge, Milo O'Shea, whether there is an upper limit to the damages they can award, must be one of the great, 'fist-in-the-air - "YES!"' moments in cinema history.
