Terry - "Yeah, well maybe my balls don't itch!"

Buddy - "All balls itch. It's a fact!"

When Terry bares her breasts to show Rick that she's actually a female, an astonished Rick says...

"Where do you get off having tits!?"

To Storyteller:
I'm so glad you love Joe vs The Volcano also. If you look back to earlier pages in this thread, I posted several other memorable exchanges from that film.
Thanks so much for those closing lines from Ben-Hur.
I never fail to weep when they are spoken.

Some great moments from

This is a tale about an unprejudiced heart, and how it changed our valley forever.

The pig and the farmer regarded each other, and for a fleeting moment something passed between them. A faint sense of some common destiny.

"I suppose the life of an anorexic duck doesn't amount to much in the broad scheme of things, but Pig - I'M ALL I'VE GOT!"

When the thought first came to him, Farmer Hoggett dismissed it as mere whimsy. But, like most of his hair-brained ideas, it wouldn't go away.

Little ideas that tickle and nag and refuse to go away should never be ignored, for in them lie the seeds of destiny.

"If I had words to make a day for you,
I'd sing you a morning golden and true,
I would make this day last for all time,
And fill the night deep in moonshine."

The great "Body Heat" with William Hurt and Kathleen Turner. The meeting scene between them with that great Big Band song "That Old Feeling" coming from the amphitheater. He's standing at the low wood railing and she leaves the seats and eventually stands near him, the music dying out as his cigarette seems to go limp at the sight of the very hot woman standing close to him.

Him: You can stand there with me but you'll HAVE to agree not to talk about the HEAT!
Her: I'm a married woman.
Him: Meaning what?
Her: Meaning I'm not looking for company.
Him: Then you should have said "I'm a HAPPILY married woman."
Her: That's MY business.
Him: What?
Her: How happy I am.
Him: And how happy is that?
Her: You're not too smart, are you?
Him: [Laughs]
Her: I like that in a man.
Him: What ELSE do you like? Lazy? Ugly? Horney? I got 'em all.
Her: You don't LOOK lazy. [Laughs] Tell me, does chat like this work with most women?
Him: Some, if they haven't been around much.
Her: I wondered. Thought maybe I was out of touch.
Him: Can I buy you a drink?
Her: I told you, I've got a husband.
Him: I'll buy him one too.
Her: He's outta town.
Him: My favorite kind -- we'll drink to him.
Her: Only comes up on weekends.
Him: [Laughs] I'm liking him better all the time!
Him: You better take me up on this quick 'cause in about 45 minutes I'm going to get up and go away.
Her: You wanna buy me something?
Him: Yeah
Her: [Motions towards the snow cone vendor] I'll take one of those.
Him: What kind?
Her: Cherry.
Him: [To vendor] Cherry -- make it two.
Him: [Returning] You're not staying in Miranda Beach. I would have noticed you.
Her: This town that small?
Him: Ohhhhhhhh [agreeing that it IS that small] Pine Haven? You're staying down in Pine Haven. On the waterway. You have a house.
Her: How did you know that?
Him: You LOOK like Pine Haven.
Her: How does Pine Haven look?
Him: Well tended.
Her: I'm well tended all right, WELL tended. What about YOU?
Him: Me? I NEED tending. I need someone to take care of me. Someone to rub my tired muscles. Smooth out my sheets.
Her: Get married.
Him: I just need it for tonight!
Her: (Spilling her red ice drink all over her white blouse) Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ... Oh, nice move, Mattie!
Him: Mattie? I like it. It's right over your heart.
Her: At least it's cool. I was burning up.
Him: I told you NOT to talk about the HEAT!
Her: Would you get me a paper towel or something -- dip it in some cold water.
Him: Right away -- I'll even wipe it off for you.
Her: You don't wanna lick it?

Had to jot down notes while playing the audio here on my iTunes. Love that movie, and that's a favorite scene, and I bought the new 2-CD set of the John Barry score mainly to get "That Old Feeling," which we hear at the start of that scene.

Here's a link to that dialog:

from CASABLANCA (an obvious choice, I know):

Major Strasser (Conrad Veidt): What is your nationality?
Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart): I'm a drunkard.
Captain Renault (Claude Rains): And that makes Rick a citizen of the world.

Re: My dialog from "Body Heat" above

I just added this link to that dialog, along with the background music, "That Old Feeling"

And this favorite scene from "Shakespeare In Love":

And the final scene from "Shakespeare In Love," which has a longer version of the cue "The End" than what is found on the soundtrack:

And 2 more.

This is a great scene from "Prelude To A Kiss," where Meg Ryan and Sidney Walker switch BACK to their right bodies. We've since lost Walker, who is missed.

And the final minutes of "Dave," where Sigourney Weaver meets up with Kevin Kline, now himself again and no longer pretending to be the President of the United States:

Upson Pratt answers the phone to find a very upset Mrs. Castenmeyer (who just heard her husband shoot himself) on the line....

Pratt - "Talk to me."

Mrs. C - "I just called to tell you what a monster you are Mr. Pratt, and how I will rejoice when you're finally dead."

Pratt - "Lots of people are going to rejoice when I'm dead. Who are you?"

Mrs. C - "Lenore Castenmeyer. I'm the wife of the man murdered this afternoon!"

Pratt - "Mrs. Castenmeyer! How are you?!"

Mrs. C - "I hope they keep Hell hot for you! You son-of-a-bitch! I hope they do! It wasn't enough for you to drive him to his knees, had to kill him as well. He came home, and his eyes were so dead. I asked him what was wrong. What could be so bad to make his eyes look that way. And the only word he could say was your name. Ten minutes later..I heard the shot!"

Pratt - "Yes, George Gendrun told me old Norman went out with a bang!

Mrs C - "How many men have you destroyed?! How many men have you killed, you monster?!

Pratt - "Only the stupid ones. Only the ones who handed me a knife and then stretched out their throats. Only the ones who, if you'll pardon the expression, fucked up. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got this bug problem so I'll have to defer your charming conversation to another time."

Mrs C - "I hope you die! I hope you get cancer in the worst place!"

Pratt - "By the way, Mrs. Castenjammer, would you mind telling me who gave you my private number? I'd like to fire him."

Mrs C - "It was in my husband's address book, you son-of-a-bitch!"

Pratt - "Well, I can't fire HIM, can I?"

Marshal O'Niel (Sean Connery) shares a moment of truth with Dr.Lazarus (Frances Sternhagen).

"They sent me here to this pile of shit because they think I belong here. I want to find out if, well, if they're right. There's a whole machine that works because everybody does what they're supposed to. And I found out that I was supposed to be…something I didn't like. That's what's in the program. That's my rotten little part in the rotten machine. I don't like it, so I'm going to find out if they're right."

"Your wife is one stupid lady. Ya' wanna go get drunk?"

Thanks so much for converting my image and placing it in my FSM profile! I just NOW discovered that you'd done it. You made the offer waaaay back on July 10, and since I didn't hear anything again, I figured you got busy and forgot about it. Then I got busy and forgot about it. I just sent you a "Thank You" email, but it seems your address has changed since July, hence this public notice…THANKS AGAIN, man!

Morris and Jerome do a spin-off of the classic Who's On First? comedy skit...

Morris - The girl has expensive tastes. I wonder if she can sing.

Jerome - As fine as she is she doesn't have to know how to sing.

M - No, that's right. I want you stay on the set tonight. I want you to work the floor.

J - What for?

M - I want to know when that sweet thing shows up. You see her, come get me. Cool?

J - Cool. I come get you, let you know the girl is there.

M - Not in front of my other babes. That wouldn't be cool. I don't want to break their hearts. So we ought to have, like, a signal.

J- A password.

M - OK, what's the password?

J - You got it.

M - Got what?

J - The password.

M - The password is what?

J - Exactly.

M - The password is exactly?

J - No, it's....

M - Hold it, hold it. Slow down. The babe walks in. You see her...

J - I see her...

M- You come get me...

J - I come get you...

M - ....and I'll probably have a couple little sexies on stand-by, so you glide by me and you say what?

J - OK

M - The password is OK?

J - As far as I'm concerned.

M - Damn it! Say the password!

J - What!

M - Say the password, Onionhead!

J - The password is what.

M - That's what I'm asking YOU.

J - It's the password.

M - The password is it?

J - The password is what.

M - It! You just said so!

J - The password isn't it. The password is....

M - What?!

J - Got it!

M - I got it?

J - Right!

M - Get 'er right!

J - What?

Guy Noir (Kevin Kline) from
A Prairie Home Companion

"She was beautiful.
Her hair was what God had in mind when He said, 'Let there be hair.'
She gave me a smile so sweet you could've poured it on your pancakes.
She was wearing a white trench coat. So white that the rain would be embarrassed to fall on it.
The skirt she was wearing was so tight you could read the embroidery on her underwear. It said, 'wash in lukewarm water and spin lightly.'
She had a Mt. Rushmore T-shirt on, and those guys never looked so good. Especially Jefferson and Lincoln. Kinda' bloated, but, uh…happy. You know what I mean.
It was an honor just to sit there and inhale the same air that she had so recently exhaled. Just to exchange the atmosphere between us, so to speak…"
