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."0

Part of my job involves sales, so I always loved this whole monologue from Ben Affleck in Boiler Room...
"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."1
