From Kingdom of Heaven

Guy de Lusignan: Give me a war.

Reynald de Chatillon: It's what I do.

An interesting commentary on our world, I think.

I can't remember: did anyone quote Big Trouble in Little China? That had some good lines.

From Zulu:

Rourke's Drift... It'd take an Irishman to give his name to a rotten stinking middle o' nowhere hole like this.

Watchmen- Rorschach:
"Beneath me, this awful city, it screams like an abattoir full of retarded children."
So very dark and descriptive.

My favorite Watchmen quote was

"You people don't understand. I'm not locked in here with you, you're locked in here with me!"
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

That was another great one. The author of Watchmen (Alan Moore, was it?) is so very descriptive. An abattoir full or retarded kids would certainly be a noisy place. Such frightened and mournful noise.

"A man who drinks like that, he is gonna' die."
"When."
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died.
Hakuin answered, "How am I supposed to know?"
"How do you know? You're a Zen master?" exclaimed the samurai.
"Yes, but not a dead one," Hakuin answered.

The graphic novel was written by Alan Moore. Great read, pick it up sometime. One of my personal faves is from the young Silk Spectre:

"I'm used to going out at three in the morning and doing something stupid."

Glad I could share. :D I love the Watchmen graphic novel and the film is very good. And that line just stuck with me.

Once they were men. Now they are land crabs.

I think I may start mining Mystery Men for quotes. This could get long.

Sphinx: We are number one. All others are number two or lower.

Mr. Furious: I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.

The Sphinx: To learn my teachings, I must first teach you how to learn.

The Sphinx: You must lash out with every limb, like the octopus who plays the drums.

The Sphinx: He who questions training only trains himself at asking questions.

[Mr. Furious tries to balance a hammer on his head]
Mr. Furious: Why am I doing this, again?
The Sphinx: When you can balance a tack hammer on your head, you will head off your foes with a balanced attack.
Mr. Furious: And why am I wearing the watermelon on my feet?
The Sphinx: [looks at the watermelon on Mr. Furious' feet] I don't remember telling you to do that.

[the trio talks about recruiting more heroes for the team]
The Blue Raja: Well, there's The Sphinx, of course.
Mr. Furious: The what?
The Blue Raja: The Sphinx.
The Shoveller: I know this guy. Big crime-fighter from down South. Big-league hitter down there.
Mr. Furious: What's his power?
The Blue Raja: Well, he's terribly mysterious.
Mr. Furious: [dismissively] That's it? That's his power? He's mysterious?
The Blue Raja: Well, TERRIBLY mysterious.
The Shoveller: Plus he can, like, cut guns in half with his mind

The Shoveller: We struck down evil with the mighty sword of teamwork and the hammer of not bickering.

The Shoveller: Come on, somebody do something, we need him.
The Bowler: Okay. Okay, you're a very furious man, you understand that?
Mr. Furious: No.
The Bowler: No? Well you've got a lot to be furious about, and I'll tell you why: You're not well-liked. You're uh, you're abrasive and off- putting. You try and say pithy things, but your wit is a hinderance and therefore nothing is provocative. Just mixed metaphors. Now, doesn't that make you angry? Does it infuriate you?
Mr. Furious: No.
The Bowler: Well, it should. Aren't you angry? Come on, man!
The Shoveller: Your penmanship is atrocious!
The Sphinx: You dress in the manner of a male prostitute!

Lucille: If just one person vomits in my pool, I'm divorcing you.
The Shoveller: That's fair

The Shoveller: If we had a billionaire like Lance Hunt as our benefactor...
Mr. Furious: That's because Lance Hunt *IS* Captain Amazing
The Shoveller: Don't start that *again*. Lance Hunt wears glasses. Captain Amazing *doesn't* wear glasses.
Mr. Furious: He takes them off when he transforms.
The Shoveller: That doesn't make any sense, he wouldn't be able to see

Waffler: I... am the Waffler. With my griddle of justice, I BASH the enemy in the head, or I burn them like so! I also have some truth syrup, which is low in fat. (The fact that this guy was played by Dane Cook makes it even funnier.)

The Shoveller: All right, I'll take point, you two flank. Let's triangulate.
The Spleen: Equilateral or isosceles?

The Shoveller: We've got a blind date with destiny... and it looks like she's ordered the lobster.

I love that movie.
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.

Amazing coincidence I have that film on my computer as an mpeg and I, just minutes ago, randomly watched that very scene (the fuck load of cutlery one).

Mystery Men is hilarious.

Mystery Men is definitely one of the better superhero spoofs out there. I love Men in Tights and Blazing Saddles, too. The myths had it coming!
