What is your favorite saying, quote, or line from a movie?

We all have our favorite movies right? but what I am curious about is do any of you have a favorite saying, quote or line from a movie, does this said quote, saying or line have personal meaning to you? and does it have any practical application to the real world?

I have a scene/toast from my all time favorite movie The Count of Monte Cristo and in this scene he Edmund the main character gives a short toast that I believe has practical meaning in the real world, and it has significant personal meaning as well, I shall post the video below, but now my question what are yours? and do they have meaning and application in the real world, if so what is it? I look forward to your answers.

  • The Blues Brothers 2000
    "Buster Blues: You're not the Elwood Blues I know. The Elwood Blues I know once said that no pharmaceutical product could ever equal the rush you get when the band hits that groove; the people are dancin', and shoutin', and swayin'; and the house is rockin'!
    Elwood Blues: Yeah, that was me.
    Buster Blues: The music, man. You know you miss the music."

    "Elwood Blues: You may go if you wish. But remember this: walk away now and you walk away from your crafts, your skills, your vocations; leaving the next generation with nothing but recycled, digitally-sampled techno-grooves, quasi-synth rhythms, pseudo-songs of violence-laden gangsta-rap, acid pop, and simpering, saccharine, soulless slush. Depart now and you forever separate yourselves from the vital American legacies of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed, Memphis Slim, Blind Boy Fuller, Louie Jordon, Little Walter, Big Walter, Sonnyboy Williamson I and II, Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Elvis Presley, Lieber and Stoller, and Robert K. Weiss.
    Donald "Duck" Dunn: Who is Robert K. Weiss?
    Elwood Blues: Turn your backs now and you snuff out the fragile candles of Blues, R&B and Soul, and when those flames flicker and expire, the light of the world is extinguished because the music which has moved mankind through seven decades leading to the millennium will whither and die on the vine of abandonment and neglect."

  • Part of my job involves sales, so I always loved this whole monologue from Ben Affleck in Boiler Room...
    http://youtu.be/VIT_RMHwCEU
    "On every call, a sale is made: either you sell the client some stock, or he sells you on why he can't. Either way, a sale is made on every call. The only question is, who's going to close, you or him?" Also love the "Look, man... tell me you don't like my firm, tell me you don't like my idea, tell me you don't like my fuckin' necktie... but don't tell me you can't put together $2500."

  • ''Breathe, Dr. Yang. Don't be crass. You're skulking. Women of your generation are graceless. It's an affront to nature. Mediocre surgeons will see you and feel themselves wilting in your shadow. Do not shrink to console them. Do not look for friends here. You won't find them. None of these people have the capacity to understand you. They never will. If you're lucky, one day when you're old and shriveled like me, you will find a young doctor with little regard for anything but their craft. And you'll train them like I trained you. Until then, read a good book. You have greatness in you, Yang. Don't disappoint.''

  • "When you're gone, all that is left behind are the memories you created in other people's lives or just a couple of items on a bill." - My Blueberry Nights

    I can relate to this quote because I want to mean something in other people's lives. I want them to remember me and make them learn something from me.

    And yes, I think it has a practical application in real life. Some people leave memories , because they do something good. While others don't, they were just here.

    • Lol nice I choose that as my favorite movie for that question traveling personality question, it's a good movie.

      Lol yeah if only we could do that, but that's the magic of cinema, unfortunately not so easy in real life, I get the appeal of it though, escaping from life, stress. Reminds me of an old pipe smoking commercial, guy gets trapped on an island, after so many months he's sitting on the beach, fire next to him SOS signal next to that and he's about to light his pipe with his last match, but then he see's a rescue boat. And he's faced with a decision use the match to smoke his pipe in peace and enjoy the island, maybe never get saved. Or use the match and get rescued and go back to his old, life which he has flashbacks of. I bet you can guess which one he chose and why and the moral of the story.

    • The whole movie is one giant great quote.

      Yours is very applicable in modern times.
      Guy Pierce is a fantastic actor, I was sad to see he stopped doing Hollywood films.

    • O yeah defiantly

      Hah yeah tell me about, plus it's just a fantastic movie altogether very underrated.
      Really? I just looked him up a while back and he's going to be in Genius and Brimstone as well as the TV series The Wizards of Aus plus I heard his girl is pregnant with his first child.

  • My favorite speech from a movie... where Tom Cruise, playing a contract killer named Vincent, rips into the taxi driver Max (Jamie Fox) who perpetually dreams of having a limo company but never has the courage to act on it.

    " 'Someday, someday my dream will come.' One night you'll wake up and you'll discover it never happened. It all turned around on you, and never will. Suddenly you are old. Didn't happen, and it never will because you were never going to do it anyway!"

    Edward Norton's final speech in Primal Fear *Spoiler* https://youtu.be/ZE1i6VIiXZI It goes to show that innocence like beauty is in the eye of the beholder and can be used for someone else's advantage.

    Scott Pilgrim: Yeah, I think garlic bread would have to be my favourite all-time food. I could eat it for every meal. Or just constantly, without stopping.
    Ramona V. Flowers: Then you'd get fat.

    -I have witnessed their capacity for courage and though we are worlds apart, there is more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime. And I send this message to any surviving Autobots taking refuge among the stars: We are here. We are waiting.
