Two dollars, I want my two dollars!
Man, that's a real shame, when folks be throwing away a perfectly good white boy.
“You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you... but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I'm not changing. I like... I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. 'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.”

Here’s to swimmin’ with bow legged women.

"I'll buy that for a dollar!"
This may not technically be a quote but.....
“Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into her side, Chief. We was comin’ back from the island of Tinian to Leyte. We’d just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes.
Didn’t see the first shark for about a half-hour. Tiger. 13-footer. You know how you know that in the water, Chief? You can tell by lookin’ from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn’t know, was that our bomb mission was so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn’t even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin’ by, so we formed ourselves into tight groups. It was sorta like you see in the calendars, you know the infantry squares in the old calendars like the Battle of Waterloo and the idea was the shark come to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin’ and hollerin’ and sometimes that shark he go away… but sometimes he wouldn’t go away.
Sometimes that shark looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a shark is he’s got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn’t even seem to be livin’… ’til he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin’. The ocean turns red, and despite all your poundin’ and your hollerin’ those sharks come in and… they rip you to pieces.
You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don’t know how many sharks there were, maybe a thousand. I do know how many men, they averaged six an hour. Thursday mornin’, Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player. Boson’s mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. He bobbed up, down in the water, he was like a kinda top. Upended. Well, he’d been bitten in half below the waist.
At noon on the fifth day, a Lockheed Ventura swung in low and he spotted us, a young pilot, lot younger than Mr. Hooper here, anyway he spotted us and a few hours later a big ol’ fat PBY come down and started to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened. Waitin’ for my turn. I’ll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went into the water. 316 men come out, the sharks took the rest, June the 29th, 1945.
Anyway, we delivered the bomb.”
Perhaps the best speech/quote from any film ever.
Some of my favorite quotes (must be we keep quoting them at my house) - all come from Mel Brooks films -
"it is my privilege to extend a laurel and hearty handshake" Blazing Saddles
" I got it... I got it...I ain't got it" High Anxiety
"It could be worse. It could be raining" Young Frankenstein
Good call on Mel Brooks. I tend to like existential quotes and this fits...
"Mongo only pawn in game of life."
Love it - Quote that one too. According to Mel Brooks - that line was written by Richard Pryor.
Actually quote a lot of lines from Mel Brooks and Monty Python but I didn't want to flood the forum.
"A brave man likes the feel of nature on his face."
"...And a wise man knows when to come in out of the rain."
I never drink.....wine.

Rudy- “We had nuns on our lot this morning, protesting the commercial, so I had Jim turn the firehouse on them”
Jim- “Yeah, and I knocked the motherf$&@ers on their ass too!”
