Anything from Exorcist II: The Heretic!  Great examples:

"If Pazuzu comes for you, I will spit a leopard!"

"Come fly the teeth of the wind!"

"When the wings have brushed you... is there no hope once the wings have brushed you?"

"I've flown this route before.  It was on the wings of a demon."

"Perhaps you should take a retreat."
"A retreat?  Why not an advance?!"


And virtually everything else from that poor excuse for a film.

My little sister was watching a made-for-tv Cindarella remake where the prince was some Chinese guy and Cindarella was played by a teenage african-american. Of course it was going to be cheesy but this line of dialouge sung by the characters during a musical number really did it for me, it goes something like this;
"Do i love you because you're beautiful, or are you beautiful because i love you", (or visa versa.)
At this moment i told my little sis to "turn this shit off, now"

Sorry to jump on the Star Wars II bandwagon but how about 'I thought we had decided not to fall in love'.  Actually, that whole scene is just stomach churning.

Also, and I apologise that I cannot remember the quote in full, but I saw a screening years ago of possibly the worst film I've ever seen (and there is some stiff competition here): Shining Through.  I sat through the screening trying not to laugh at the complete tripe unfolding infront of me but there was one line that sent me convulsing to the floor - I'm sorry that I can't remember it properly (and I've no desire to rent the film to check it) but it went something like: 'I knew today was Friday because tomorrow was Saturday'.  What??

That has always annoyed me, from the first time I saw it - I can't believe Connery, of all people, let that one slide.

Whats really funny about that scene is after Aragorn says it,Legolas says ''their taking the hobbits to OISENGUARD!''.At least thats how orlando bloom says it,i believe its pronounced ISENguard!

That is one of the funniest things I have ever fucking seen. I thank you.

I'm about a year and a half too late to mention the Storm line but....well yeah that line sucks.

Plus "I've always been standing in your doorway"

There's a word for people like you lady: STALKER!!!

That Serenity line is fucking hilarious though. How can you not get that Joe? Its totally sums up the characters of Mal and Jayne all in that simple exchange.

Plus you should watch Firefly cause its a great show.

Well, something like that.
oh, and let's not forget the morronic:

That reminds me of the "If you want to shoot, shoot, don't talk" line in The Good The Bad and the Ugly. Hmmm...

What's wrong with the "Wiggle your big toe" line? It's a very comical moment (in a good way).

No fucking shit fella. I thought you were Soundwave.

There's actually probably way worse from the film but i've (gladly) forgotten them.

But maybe none so pointless.

Not only the worst line, but the worst delivery, the worst performance and the worst costume ever to appear in a film.

As well as being cribbed from about a dozen other films, it doesn't even scan right. 'Don't let your mouth write checques your ass can't cash', while still wholly unoriginal, at least sounds less clunky.
Seeing as this thread is several years old I'm sure Storm's 'zinger' to Toad in X-Men's already been mentioned, but what the hell, it takes some fucking beating.

Re: Cliffhanger.
Especially Lithgow's lines.

"Kill a few people they call you a murderer. Kill a million, they call you a conqueror, go figure."

"stick around." (his accent slipped)


I never liked the Terminator exchange about why they couldnt bring weapons through time. "something about the energy field generated by a living organism.."
It seemed more logical that inanimate matter would be easier to time travel. I.e. when Goldblum was testing the teleportation in the Fly.

I know it was used so the psychiatrist could demonstrate how intricate Reese's delusion was in his answers, but the  T-1000 was  able to go through time  when he was liquid metal...

Watched The Rock the other night after not seeing it for years. Still a great film but some of the dialogue is shocking.

'I'm only borrowing your Humvie'
'What kind of fucked up tour is this?'
'I'll take pleasure in gutting you, boy!'

But all these are countered by:-
'Your besht? losers always whine about their besht, winners go home and fuck the prom queen'

ORIGINAL: Dino last

Anyone who thinks Hayden Christensen is a bad actor should see Shattered Glass. And the worst direlogue. "I am the Architect. I created the Matrix. I've been waiting for you. You have many questions, and though the process has altered your consciousness, you remain irrevocably human. Ergo some of my answers you will understand, and some of them you will not. Concordantly, while your first question may be the most pertinent, you may or may not realize it is also the most irrelevant".  And everything he says after that.


And although I haven't read the thread after page 1 (looking forward to that I can tell you), I want to make a point about Hayden C and Annakin. I went to see ROTS in the cinema when it came out (the only one of the 6, to my everlasting shame) and haven't seen it since (more shame?) but can anyone tell me if I'm right about something. If I am, I thought more would have been written about it, but my mate and I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
Namely this; when Palpatine flicks the switch as it were on his newest toy, Annakin/Vader says, in a creaky girly voice ''Padme?''. Were we right? Cos even though you may say that he realises for the first time he has lost pretty much everything for all time, I'm guessing his boss is gonna be a little ticked off that he didn't start with something a bit more manly or at least omenous like, ''lets get out there and twat the galaxy'', or ''what is thy bidding my master?''. But ''Padme? sniff....'' Honestly didn't know whether to laugh or cry people. Although maybe it was all a dreammmmm.

Edit: I had written my thoughts on The Architect (in general) but decided to remove them. I am sure there is a thread or 9 with arguments raging and I don't want to get the fuse lit on here too. Do not bother to ask me what they were either. PM if you must. Cheers. Mine's a pint of apples
