Note: this thread was originally used for a contest.  There are a lot of good quotes here so I am renaming the thread and reopening it for non-contest participation.
List one of your favorite quotes from a Paramount movie along with the title of the movie its from.

Owing to what has to be a record-breaking brain fart (I believe it registered on instruments at the USGS), I somehow managed to quote a favorite line from a movie produced by someone other than Paramount.  Please excuse the monumental stupidity.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/blush.gif">  (Between this and incorrectly nitpicking Indy, this has been a really humbling thread for me.  And I don't like it one bit.

Wonder Boys is one of my top ten movies of all time. One reason is student Sam Traxler's response to a question from his professor, Grady Tripp.


Tripp: "Do you get high, Trax?"


Traxler: "Only when I'm working, sir!"

Captain Oveur: Well, not for another two hours.

from Duck Soup (1933)...

Mrs. Gloria Teasdale (Margaret Dumont): "I’ve sponsored your appointment because I feel you are the most able statesman in all Freedonia."

Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx): "Well that covers a lot of ground. Say, you cover a lot of ground yourself. You better beat it, I hear they’re going to tear you down and put up an office building where you’re standing. You can leave in a taxi; if you can’t get a taxi, you can leave in a huff; if that’s too soon, you can leave in a minute and a huff. You know you haven’t stopped talking since I came here; you must have been vaccinated with a phonograph needle."

"Those aren't pillows!" from Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Full passage:
Two men are spooning in a motel bed.  (If you haven't seen the movie, it makes sense.)
"Where is your other hand?"
"Between two pillows."
"Those aren't pillows!"

I know you're probably doing this from memory (or that you checked it on the IMDB, which also has it wrong), but the actual line is, "It's not the years sweetheart, it's the mileage."

Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan

Kirk
: Khan, you bloodsucker. You're going to have to do your own dirty work now! Do you hear me? Do you?
Khan: Kirk? You're still alive, my old friend?
Kirk: Still, "old friend!" You've managed to kill everyone else, but like a poor marksman, you keep missing the target!
Khan: Perhaps I no longer need to try, Admiral.
[beams the Genesis device away]
Kirk: Khan... Khan, you've got Genesis, but you don't have me. You were going to kill me, Khan. You're going to have to come down here. You're going to have to come down here!
Khan: I've done far worse than kill you, Admiral. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you. I shall leave you as you left me, as you left her; marooned for all eternity in the center of a dead planet... buried alive! Buried alive...!
Kirk: KHAAANNNN!
[echo]
Kirk: KHAAANNNN!

Thanks, Joe.  I didn't trust my memory and thought I'd verify on IMDB.  That'll teach me! /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif

The Commissioner (William Conrad) to plantation-owner Charlton Heston, who is about to hold his ground against a voracious horde of army ants:

"Leiningen, you're up against a monster twenty miles long and two miles wide --forty square miles of agonizing death-- you can't stop it!"
