so many to choose from but for now:

SICK BOY
It's certainly a phenomenon in all walks of life.

RENTON
What do you mean?

SICK BOY
Well, at one time, you've got it, and then you lose it, and it's gone forever. All walks of life: George Best, for example. Had it, lost it. Or David Bowie, or Lou Reed...

RENTON
Some of his solo stuff's not bad.

SICK BOY
No, it's not bad, but it's not great either. And in your heart you kind of know that although it sounds all right, it's actually just shite.

RENTON
So who else?

SICK BOY
Charlie Nicholas, David Niven, Malcolm McLaren, Elvis Presley...

RENTON
OK, OK, so what's the point you're trying to make?

SICK BOY
All I'm trying to do is help you understand that The Name of The Rose is merely a blip on an otherwise uninterrupted downward trajectory.

RENTON
What about The Untouchables?

SICK BOY
I don't rate that at all.

RENTON
Despite the Academy Award?

SICK BOY
That means fuck all. Its a sympathy vote.


SICK BOY
Do you shee the beasht? Have you got it in your shights?

RENTON
Clear enough, Missh Moneypenny! This should preshent no shignificant problemsh!

SICK BOY
For a vegetarian, Rents, you're a fuckin' EVIL shot!



(You know, I always thought Johnny Lee Miller's spot-on Edinburgh accent and Connery impresshion was impressive/ironic cos:

a) He's English, and...

b) He's Bernard "M" Lee's grandson or something!*)





*c) He was also married to Angelina Jolie. Bastard!

Nothing can beat Nigel Tufnel's constant state of confusion...

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

I like how the beeb's iplayer volume goes up to eleven.

Deckard: "Leon!"

Leon: "How old am I?"

Deckard: (punches Leon across the face with no effect whatsoever)" I don't know."

Leon: "My birthday is April 10, 2017. How long do I live?"

Deckard: "Four years."

Leon: (Starts beating the shit out of Deckard) "More than you.........Painful to live in fear, isn't it?...(continues beating deckard)..... Nothing is worse than having an itch you can never scratch."

Deckard: "Oh, I agree!"

Bernstein, these men who are now with the Inquirer, who were with the Chronicle until yesterday... Bernstein, Bernstein, these men who were with the Chronicle, weren't they just as devoted to the Chronicle policies as they are now to our policies?

BERNSTEIN
Sure they are just like anybody else. They got work to do, they do it. Only they happen to be the best men in the business.

LELAND
Do we stand for the same things the Chronicle stands for, Mr. Bernstein?

BERNSTEIN
Certainly not. Listen, Mr. Kane will change them to his kind of newspapermen in a week.

LELAND
There's always a chance, of course, that they will change Mr. Kane without his knowing it.



BERNSTEIN
A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl.

It happens sometimes. People just explode.


They ain't scumbags. They're car thieves just like us.


Get in the car, white boy. Job's not done.


Hey, blanks get the job done too.


Someone piss on the floor again?


I show up at a guy's place of work, he's shit scared. He knows I ain't no cop. Thinks I've come to kill 'im. And I would. I'll kill any man who crosses me. Know what I mean?


John Wayne was a fag.

The hell he was!

He was too, you boys. I installed two-way mirrors at his pad in Brentwood and he came to the door in a dress.


The more you drive, the less intelligent you are.


HOLY SHEEP SHIT!


I will not allow a vehicle to be harmed or through inaction allow that vehicle to come to harm. It's The Repo Code, kid. Etch it on your brain.


I don't want no Commies in my car. No Christians neither.


Ordinary people. I fuckin' hate 'em.


Only an assh*le gets killed for a car.


Repo Man's always intense!

A thread for positivity? How wonderful!


Um... That's why I started it. I went looking for a "Best Lines" thread and, er, couldn't find one. A damning indictment overwhelming online negativity? You tell me. It's certainly hard to deny that the negative threads seem to outnumber the positive. But that's t'internet for you. I'm a wide-eyed optimist me - always look on the bright side of life!



That probably sounded more snarky than intended. I'm genuinely happy that there's a positive thread to contribute to - so rare among the whinging.



check out my 'cheesy tears of joy ' thread, that will be right up your street, albeit still containing one grumpy post by DC, but thats to be expected.
