Best quotes from movies / video games


Recommended Posts

I recently watched the movie Selma (great movie by the way, you should definitely watch it) in which President Lyndon B. Johnson said certain gems such as, "You tell Wallace and his backwater hicks I don't wanna hear about anymore of this horse shit," and "Wallace, just give the niggers the vote will ya?" and "Wallace, are you shittin me?"

Sometimes there are certain things people say in a movie or video game that just inspire you, make you laugh, or dare I say it, arouse you. This thread is dedicated to those quotes. Personally, for best quote ever N/A I nominated "ENGLISH MOTHER FUCKER DO YOU SPEAK IT" by Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction...


Please try to stay as on topic and not shit post-y as possible.

I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow in the knee - some guy from skyrim



Usually, the good lord works in mysterious ways. But not today! This here, is 66 tonnes of straight up, H.E spewing dee-vine intervention! If god is love, then you can call me Cupid! - Sgt Johnson, Halo 2.

Journalist: M. Ben M'Hidi, don't you think it cowardly to use your women's baskets and handbags to carry your bombs which kill so many innocent people?

Ben M'Hidi: Does it not seem more cowardly to drop napalm bombs on defenseless villages, so that there are a thousand times more innocent victims? Of course, if we had your airplanes it would be a lot easier for us. Give us your bombers, and you can have our baskets.


Le Battail d'Algiers, 1966, dir. Pontecorvo


I'm not a big film buff so here's some other stuff I've recently read or heard that I really like.



I want to persuade you that irony, poker-faced silence, and fear of ridicule are distinctive of those features of contemporary U.S. culture (of which cutting-edge fiction is a part) that enjoy any significant relation to the television whose weird pretty hand has my generation by the throat.


David Foster Wallace, from E Unibus Pluram (an essay about the cultural influence of TV in the mid 90s, something about the weird pretty hand gets me.)


What peaches and what penumbras! Whole families

shopping at night! Aisles full of husbands! Wives in the

avocados, babies in the tomatoes!--and you, García Lorca, what

were you doing down by the watermelons?


Allen Ginsburg, Supermarket in California, 1955. Effusively brings iconic gay poets into the space of mid 50s consumer America.


In the altered shelves, in the ambient roar, in the plain and heartless fact of their decline, they try to work their way through confusion. But in the end it doesn't matter what they see or think they see. The terminals are equipped with holographic scanners, which decode the binary secret of every item, infallibly. This is the language of waves and radiation, or how the dead speak to the living.


Don DeLillo, White Noise, 1985

"If you want this you will have to pry it from my cold, dead hands. Even then, good luck, because I would have glued it to my cold, dead hands!" -Soldier

"No-scope? Nice!" - Viktor Reznov; Call of Duty: World at War

And my favorite - "I'm drunk! You don' have an excuse!" -Demoman during a Jeer.
