Two from Blue Jasmine: 'Anxiety, nightmares and a nervous breakdown, there’s only so many traumas a person can withstand until they take to the streets and start screaming.' 'You choose losers because that's what you think you deserve and that's why you'll never have a better life.' More

14 Between two apocalypses
I think my favorite line of the year is that one from The World's End. However, I was re-watching This Is The End the other day and it has so many gems: "Dear God, it's me, Jonah Hill, from Moneyball", "Channing Taint-YUM!", "Sinkhole de mayo"... They're all so dumb. More

15 RE: Best line of the year is...
Iron Man 3: "You can take away my suits, you can take away my home, but there's one thing you can never take away from me: I am Iron Man." Thor TDW: Dr. Erik Selvig: "Any questions?" Stan Lee: "Yeah. Can I have my shoe back?" Despicable Me 2: Gru: " I really hate that chicken! " Star Trek Into Darkness: Bones: "Don't agree with me, Spock, it makes me very uncomfortable.
