Round Up The Usual Suspects

More movie quotes: this a link to a PDF document of the nominees.

Well, given the pop culture divas that number among us, time for own own list. In the comments leave your own favorite movie lines and what movie they are from.

I'll join you shortly, after I finish schooling Nate in the greatness that is Casablanca. [Pistols at dawn, Nate?]

"Use enough dynamite there, Butch?"
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

"You wanna know how you do it? Here's how, they pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That's the Chicago way, and that's how you get Capone!"

I've never seen Casablanca or Buth Cassidy. I am an uncultured swine.

-O Brother Where Art Thou
"You two are just dumber than a bag of hammers."

Pete: You miserable little snake! You stole from my kin!
Everett: Who was fixin' to betray us.
Pete: You didn't know that at the time.
Everett: So I borrowed it until I did know.
Pete: That don't make no sense!
Everett: Pete, it's a fool that looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

Harry Lime: Don't be so gloomy. After
all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock. So long Holly.
-Orson Welles, "The Third Man"

The Shawshank Redemption
Red: [narrating] The first night's the toughest, no doubt about it. They march you in naked as the day you were born, skin burning and half blind from that delousing shit they throw on you, and when they put you in that cell... and those bars slam home... that's when you know it's for real. A whole life blown away in the blink of an eye. Nothing left but all the time in the world to think about it.

Andy Dufresne: [in letter to Red] Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

Monte Python & the Holy Grail:

Arthur: Your arm is off
Black Knight: It's just a flesh wound!

I'd like to choose the whole Princess Bride but if I must choose one line:
Inigo: Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!

No way, Nate. You can pick the time, but I pick the weapon. Howitzers at midnight it is.

"Colonel, find that chaplain. He stands in good with the Lord, and I want to decorate him!"
