Say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

Actually I have a better one now.
"The gun is good. The penis is evil."
It's philosophical, filled with Freudian undertones and will certainly provide a valuable lesson to all viewers under 13.

Sorry Rob, a list has more than one item. If it has exactly one item then it isn't a list so I moved it here.

As for my line of dialog.......I'll be back!

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

This is hard. Do we go with the single line that communicates the most on it's own, or the one that means the most in context of the film itself? I vote the latter (as most seem to so far), but there's a case to be made either way. Regardless, this is mine (although I might give you a different answer tomorrow):

"People always say to me, 'when you get to the NBA, don't forget about me.' Well, I should've said back, 'if I don't make it to the NBA, don't you forget about me.'"

That line shatters me every time.

A tossup between these two:

"Spiderpig, Spiderpig...does whatever a Spiderpig does..."

Or...

"I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti..."

One more:

"Send more paramedics."

"Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."


both for how appropriate it was for the movie, and for how un-appropriate it was to say "damn" at the time.

This isn't my favorite, but I'm posting it anyway because I just saw this movie the other day and its fresh on my mind.

"You're best? Losers always complain about doing their best. Winners go home and fuck the prom queen!"

James Woods made 2 of my all-time favorite ones in 1986's "Cop"..."Let's take a walk down memory lane!", and "Good news is that I'm a cop, and I'm going to have to arrest you and take you in. Bad news is that I've just been suspended, my gun and badge were taken away, and I don't give a ****!".(or something like that)

"Selling a gun for the first time is a lot like having sex for the first time. You're excited but you don't really know what the hell you're doing. And some way, one way or another, it's over too fast."

I absolutely loved that movie!!!

I also love, from Once Upon a Time in America,
"It's 10:25, and I have nothing left to lose."
