Movie quotes

"What did you do?"

These are mostly movie quotes, but there are some quotes from TV shows, as well. I've tried to avoid quotes that require explanation, but there are some that slipped through the cracks (the Worf-Alexander conversation over there in "S," well, you just had to see the episode). They're mostly funny ones, but there's a few more serious ones. Many movies deserve to have their entire script in here, but I've imposed a limit of no more than three from any given source. Enjoy! And please, if you notice an error, please let me know (email address can be found in the Personal section). In the years since IMDB started allowing people to submit quotes, it's gotten harder to find the original wording if you don't own a movie.

"Caution: some quotes contain language." Snicker.

Note : Quotes with their source marked with an * come from something that has been (probably clumsily) translated from Japanese.

Simon Templar

My name is Bruno Hautenfaust. I was named for a saint who was a very wealthy man. Had the wines, the womens, the songs, the whole bit. And then, inexplicably, took a vow of poverty and went off to live in the forest as a hermit. In the nude.

Ivan Tretiak

Please, leave.

Saving Private Ryan

Pvt. Reiben

Sorry, sir, but let's say you weren't a Captain, or maybe I was a Major. What would you say then?

Capt. Miller

In that case, I'd say this is an excellent mission, sir, with an extremely valuable objective, sir. Worthy of my best efforts, sir. Moreover, I feel heartfelt sorrow for the mother of Private James Ryan and am willing to lay down the lives of me and my men - especially you, Reiben - to ease her suffering.

Say Anything

Lloyd Dobler

I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.

Shawshank Redemption


And that's how it came to pass that on the second-to-last day of the job, the convict crew that tarred the plate factory roof in the spring of forty-nine wound up sitting in a row at ten o'clock in the morning drinking icy cold, Bohemia-style beer, courtesy of the hardest screw that ever walked a turn at Shawshank State Prison.

Drink up while it's cold, ladies.

Ichabod Crane

... Because.

Protection from what?! Zee Germans??



Cattle mutilations are up.

Peter Parker

Go web! Fly! Up, up, and away, web! Shazam! Web it!
