    There are a few of us here that have the guilty pleasure of loving an much "underloved" film. 7 Faces of Dr. Lao. Many great lines come from that film

    "Mirrors are often ugly"

    "Do you know what wisdom is?
    No sir.
    Wise answer."

    And of course:
    "The whole world is a circus if you know how to look at it. The way the sun goes down when you're tired, comes up when you want to be on the move. That's real magic. The way a leaf grows. The song of the birds. The way the desert looks at night, with the moon embracing it. Oh, my boy, that's… that's circus enough for anyone. Every time you watch a rainbow and feel wonder in your heart. Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand. Every time you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic!" Every time such a thing happens, you're part of the Circus of Dr. Lao."

    At least I'll get the record for the longest quote in this thread.:P

    EDIT: I forgot Tino's full page quote:cool:

    A lot of great quotes in this thread, but none yet (I think) from The Shawshank Redemption:

    "Hope is a dangerous thing my friend, it can kill a man..."
    "Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies."
    "Get busy living, or get busy dying."
    "Andy Dufresne, the man who crawled through 500 yards of shit and came out clean the other end""

    and the last quote which always get's me...
    "I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope."

    A couple more great lines from Network-

    “She’s television generation. She learned life from Bugs Bunny.”

    “You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beeeeaaaaaalllllllle!”

    I was re-visiting We're the Millers the other day and thought of this thread...

    David (Jason Sudeikis) describing to a stylist the type of haircut he wants:

    "Yeah. I say, give me somethin' that says, 'I get up every morning at 5:30 and commute for an hour and a half to some bullshit job where my jag-off boss expects me to kiss his balls all day just so I can afford to keep my ungrateful, screaming kids decked out in Dora the explorer shit and my wife up to her fat ass in self-help videos until the day I get up the courage to put a shotgun in my mouth."

    (The film gets a pretty mediocre 44 rating on Metacritic, but I've always enjoyed it as an amusing trifle.)

    - Walter.

    Another couple of lines that always crack me up from that scene-

    Mia- “Marcellus throwing Tony out of a 4 story window seem reasonable?”
    Vincent- “No, it seemed excessive, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.”
