Movie quotes

"Well, I've always believed that if done properly, armed robbery doesn't have to be an unpleasant experience."

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.

Nothing that a rooftop and an AK-47 won't take care of.

I'd fuck you.


Thank you, honey. I know you would.

Cosmetics Saleslady

We also have this new face cream which neutralizes the free radicals that attack the skin. Let me ask you: what's your skin regime?


My regime? The regime from which the radicals are trying to get free? Are we selling face cream or staging a coup?

Well, I've always believed that if done properly, armed robbery doesn't have to be an unpleasant experience.

Thomas Crown Affair

Detective McCann

Are you okay?



Detective McCann

I was okay once. I found out my wife was cheating on me. I beat a suspect unconscious, fucked five women in three days, and drove my car the wrong way on an off-ramp. But I was okay.

Archie Gates

No unnecessary shots, Conrad, 'cause we know what they do.

Time Bandits

Evil Genius

When I have the map, I will be free, and the world will be different, because I have understanding.


Understanding of what, master?

Evil Genius

Digital watches. And soon I will have understanding of videocassette recorders and car telephones. And when I have understanding of them, I shall have understanding of computers. And when I have understanding of computers, I shall be the Supreme Being! God isn't interested in technology. He knows nothing of the potential of the microchip or the silicon revolution. Look how he spends his time: forty-three species of parrots! Nipples for men!



Evil Genius

Slugs! He created slugs! They can't hear, they can't speak, they can't operate machinery. If I were creating the world, I wouldn't mess about with butterflies and daffodils. I would've started with lasers, eight o'clock, day one.


Do you mean you knew what was happening to us all the time?

Supreme Being

Well, of course. I am the Supreme Being. I'm not entirely dim.

No one said you have to live on Bob.

James Bond

So that's what I've been doing wrong all these years.

Toy Story

Buzz Lightyear

Excuse me, I think the word you're searching for is "space ranger."


The word I'm searching for, I can't say, because there's preschool toys present.

Buzz Lightyear

You are a sad, strange, little man. You have my pity. Farewell.



Well, red usually means "caution." Or "beef" if it's a bouillon cube.


I can't even eat. The food keeps touching. I like military plates; I'm a military man, I want a military meal. I want my string beans to be quarantined! I like a little fortress around my mashed potatoes so the meatloaf doesn't invade my mashed potatoes and cause mixing in my plate! I HATE IT when food touches! I'm a military man, you understand that? And don't let your food touch either, please?


Mother Superior

Would sir care for a starter of some garlic bread perhaps?


No, thank you. I will proceed directly to the IV of hard drugs, please.
