Kyle Reese: He's not a man - a machine. A Terminator. A Cyberdyne Systems Model 101.
Sarah Connor: A machine? Like a robot?
Kyle Reese: Not a robot. A cyborg. A cybernetic organism.

Terence Fletcher: I don't think people understood what it was I was doing at Shaffer. I wasn't there to conduct. Any fucking moron can wave his arms and keep people in tempo. I was there to push people beyond what's expected of them. I believe that is... an absolute necessity. Otherwise, we're depriving the world of the next Louis Armstrong. The next Charlie Parker. I told you about how Charlie Parker became Charlie Parker, right?
Andrew: Jo Jones threw a cymbal at his head.
Terence Fletcher: Exactly. Parker's a young kid, pretty good on the sax. Gets up to play at a cutting session, and he fucks it up. And Jones nearly decapitates him for it. And he's laughed off-stage. Cries himself to sleep that night, but the next morning, what does he do? He practices. And he practices and he practices with one goal in mind, never to be laughed at again. And a year later, he goes back to the Reno and he steps up on that stage, and plays the best motherfucking solo the world has ever heard. So imagine if Jones had just said

Colonel Sandurz: What shall we do now, Sir?
Dark Helmet: Well, are we stopped?
Colonel Sandurz: We're stopped, Sir.
Dark Helmet: Good. Well, why don't we take a five minute break?
Colonel Sandurz: Very good, Sir.
Dark Helmet: Smoke if you got'em.

Everybody listen up! We have to put a barrier between us and the snakes!

David Dunn: I wanted to ask you a question. It's gonna sound a little strange, just think about it for a second, okay?
Audrey Dunn: Okay.
David Dunn: When's the last time I was sick? Do you remember?
Audrey Dunn: Um, I don't know. It's been a while.
David Dunn: I haven't been sick this year, I know that.
Audrey Dunn: Okay.
David Dunn: Do you remember me getting sick?
Audrey Dunn: Um... not a specific day. What - what's this about?

Hutch: [waiting outside Huggy's club] What, you've never run an errand on the clock before?
Starsky: No, I happen to take care of my personal business after work. When the taxpayers aren't paying me to protect them.
Hutch: Give me a break. You've never stopped and bought yourself a cup of coffee?
Starsky: I bring a thermos.

I wouldn't make a hasty decision. Nobody can make a snap decision. We've got to consider the pros and cons, make a list, get advice... Have I ever stopped you from doing anything?

Frank Stark

Soldier: There he is: War Horse.

John Mason: You have an emergency.
Stanley Goodspeed: Right.
John Mason: And you need my help.
Stanley Goodspeed: Exactly right.
John Mason: Coffee.
Stanley Goodspeed: No, I'm fine, thank you.
John Mason: Offer ME coffee.

Too many arrogant men who flatter you with their presence.

Cassia

Jim Stark: Did you make my sandwiches?
Mrs. Carol Stark: There's meatloaf and, peanut butter.
[Jim laughs]
Mrs. Stark, Jim's grandmother: What did I tell you?
[condescendingly]
Mrs. Stark, Jim's grandmother: Peanut butter.
Mrs. Carol Stark: Well there's a thermos of orange juice and apple sauce cake to go with it.
Mrs. Stark, Jim's grandmother: [to Jim] And "I" made that.

This here's Miss Bonnie Parker. I'm Clyde Barrow. We rob banks.
