The Meaning of Life is a classic, but I do love The Life of Brian, especially the scene where the Centurion corrects Brian's grammar, and where they sing Look on the Bright Side of Life.

Those are great scenes! For me though, it's the one where he falls off the tower "You lucky bastard!"
Our Flyer,
Who drink in heaven,
FSM be thy name,
Thy ketchup come,
Thy sauce be done,
On earth as it's served in heaven.
Give us this day our garlic bread,
And forgive over cooked Tagliatelle,
As we forgive those who serve it to us.
And lead us not into takeaways,
Who deliver pizzas so evil.
For thine is the pasta, al dente cooked spaghetti.
For breakfast and dinner,
RAmen

Fom Young Frankenstein. When they are riding a carriage through the woods a wolf howls and Frankenstein exclaims:

"Werewolf!"

Igor says, pointing: "Therewolf."
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

Mel Brooks films are a gold mine of good lines. I really have to start filling my collection. Only problem is that our last good movie store shut down last year, and Wal-Mart and Target don't carry the stuff I really want.

Well, seeing as the Princess Bride is my favorite movie, I could quote all day long. However, I think I will do a couple from Knocked up.

Jay: Man, my balls are shaved, my pubes are trimmed, I'm ready to fuckin' rock this shit!
Jonah: What the fuck, man? If I go in there and see fuckin' pubes sprinkled on the toilet seat, I'm gonna fuckin' lose my mind! Last time I went to the bathroom, Jay, I took a shit and my shit looked like a fuckin' stuffed animal!

Also,

Ben Stone: Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll.
If only Wash were a magical zombie like Jesus. I miss him. Now who will pilot my spaceship?
"Life IS pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something."
Alex Trebek: Oh good. Mr. Connery wants to say something.
Sean Connery: I've thought of some more foreign ladies I snogged.

James Bond: Do you expect me to talk?

Auric Goldfinger: No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die.

Can't help it; I love 007 films.

I don't know if we've had this one before:

Centurion: You know the penalty laid down by Roman law for harboring a known criminal?
Matthias: No.
Centurion: Crucifixion!
Matthias: Oh.
Centurion: Nasty, eh?
Matthias: Could be worse.
Centurion: What you mean "Could be worse"?
Matthias: Well, you could be stabbed.
Centurion: Stabbed? Takes a second. Crucifixion lasts hours. It's a slow, horrible death.
Matthias: Well, at least it gets you out in the open air.
Centurion: You're weird!

From Blade Runner (I can't remember the name of Edward James Olmos's character to save my life):
It's too bad she wont live. But then again, who does?

I can't believe that I didn't remember this sooner but one of my all-time favourites is "Evil is amongst us... Stand back boy! This calls for divine intervention! I kick arse for the lord!" from Brain Dead.
Vote Pieces for Pope! She didn't buy me off with the funny hat, I swear!... She made me a cardinal.

I'm sure most if not all of you can name the source for the following quote.

They'll come at you sideways. It's how they think. It's how they move. Sidle up and smile. Hit you where you're weak.

Also, from the same movie,

Goin' on a year now, I ain't had nothin' 'twixt my nethers weren't run on batteries.
If only Wash were a magical zombie like Jesus. I miss him. Now who will pilot my spaceship?

Serenity? Firefly?
Our Flyer,
Who drink in heaven,
FSM be thy name,

Give us this day our garlic bread,
And forgive over cooked Tagliatelle,
As we forgive those who serve it to us.
And lead us not into takeaways,
Who deliver pizzas so evil.
For thine is the pasta, al dente cooked spaghetti.

Yup. They were both Serenity quotes. Hooray for nerdery! Or is it nerddom? Whatever it is, I am a damn proud member.
