    I will avoid the usual Most-Famous lines such as "Frankly Miss Scarlett," or "I was misinformed" and "I'll have what she's having," or "Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!" Instead, I will delve a little deeper into films both great and not so great that have a perfectly-delivered line that stands out in my memory and makes me smile each time I hear it. It might well be from a movie not generally thought of as being terribly witty. I'm won't describe the context or the scene involved, as most of you will know what I'm referring to. If not, watch the movie again! These are all a matter of opinion, of course. Please join in!

    JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH (1959) James Mason to Arlene Dah: "You make my mouth water."
    A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS (1966) Nigel Davenport to Leo McKern: "It had occurred to me."
    TOOTSIE (1982) Sydney Pollack to Dustin Hoffman: "Oh, Michael, I begged you to get therapy..."
    BLAST OF SILENCE (1961) Narrator: "You don't have to know a man to live with him, but you have to know a man like a brother to kill him.
    CITY SLICKERS (1991) Bruno Kirby to Daniel Stern: "Same Day."
    BEST IN SHOW (2000) Fred Willard To Jay-Lyn Green: "Remind me never to come to you for a physical!"
    DARK AND STORMY NIGHT (2009) Name summoned during a seance: "Gunny Gunny Luck Cakes..."

    So many! I'll post more later.

    "It's Groundhog Day, again." (Just one of the many great lines in the film.)

    If we're going to do Blazing Saddles we must have "Mongo only pawn in game of life"

    And around my house we frequently quote High Anxiety "I got it - I got it - I ain't got it"
