30 Day Movie Challenge Day 19

Best/favorite line in a movie . . .

It's hard to pick just one I'll go with, "And that's how you play get the guest" from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

Brent's  (embedding isn't allowed.  You should really watch the whole clip, but 2:13 is where it gets good).


  1. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. I love Maggie talking football in this scene:

    Tell him how many times
    Skipper fumbled and stumbled and fell apart.
    On offensive he was useless.
    On defensive he was a coward.

  3. Honestly, you could choose any scene in Raising Arizona for me, and it would have one of my favorite lines. Here's one:

    I tried to stand up and fly straight, but it wasn't easy with that sumbitch Reagan in the White House. I dunno. They say he's a decent man, so maybe his advisors are confused.

  4. I carry twenty-three great wounds, all got in battle. Seventy-five men have I killed with my own hands in battle. I scatter and burn my enemies' tents. I take away their flocks and herds. The Turks pay me a golden treasure, yet I am poor!

    Because I am a river to my people!

  5. Kent, that is a great quote. It reminds me of that one from Titus Andronicus.

    Wendy, one of the saddest moments of my life was the moment I discovered that I had memorized Raising Arizona, and could no longer watch it in the company of others due to my line reciting problem.

  6. I have done a thousand dreadful things
    As willingly as one would kill a fly,
    And nothing grieves me heartily indeed
    But that I cannot do ten thousand more.
