A golden oldie

I posted this about three years ago. I still like it.

These are all famous lines from movies.

SCENE I: A Bar: The Dew Drop Inn

Stella: Make me a martini, baby, and don't be stingy.
Bartender: Show me the money.
Stella: I've always depended on the kindness of strangers...
Bartender (aside): Of all the gin-joints in all the towns
in all the world, she walks into mine.
Stella: You talking to ME? Surely you can't be serious.
Bartender: I am serious, and don't call me Shirley.
Stella (gets up to leave): I'll be baaack...

James (enters bar): Stella! Hey Stellaaa!!
Stella: Hello gorgeous! Gotta name?
James: Bond, James Bond. Remember last year in Kansas City?
You were polymorphously perverse.
Stella: Yeh, I used to be pure as the driven snow, but I've
drifted a little. Buy a little lady a drink, my preciousss?
James: Bartender, two martinis, shaken not stirred.
Bartender (aside): Hang on to your seatbelts, it's gonna be a bumpy night.

Stella: Here's looking at you, kid. I think this is the
beginning of a beautiful friendship.
James: Tonight I consider myself the luckiest man
on the face of the earth.
Stella (aside): I need him like an axe needs a turkey.
James: I'm crazy about you, baby.
Stella: Is that a pistol in your pocket
or are you just glad to see me?
James: I feel the need, the need for speed.
Stella: I'd say you're doin' ninety.
James: You've got to ask yourself one question:
'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya...?

SCENE II: A Motel: The Do Flop Inn

Stella: What a dump.
James: Say hello to my little friend...
Stella: Well, nobody's perfect.
James: It's alive! It's alive!!
Stella: May I feel it?
James: Might go off in your face.
Stella: Listen, mister. You're gonna get on the horse
and I'm gonna hold on tight and away we're gonna
go, go, go!
James: So go ahead, make my day.
Stella: Ohhh...I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.


James: Woh! I'm king of the world! Woh!
Stella: Life is a banquet, and most poor sons of bitches
are starving to death. Did FuzzyWuzzy enjoy his dinner?
James: That's the most fun I've ever had without laughing.
Stella: Snap out of it! Pay me! Whaddyagot?
James: What we got here is a failure to communicate.
Hasta la vista, baby.
Stella: I'll GET you, my pretty!
James: Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

Click on the link and you can find the movies they came from. A very nice job.

But they missed my favorite:

"Fill your hands you son of a bitch!"


Mattie Ross: You are too old and fat to be jumping horses.
Rooster Cogburn: Well, come see a fat old man some time!
[jumps the fence and rides away]

And if I have to tell you the last two are from "True Grit," well then...

"You aint never caught a rabbit and you aint no friend of mine!"

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
