Natalie: Terrence started seeing my dad after his mom died. She left him everything. He was 41 when I was 13. He told me I was pretty. And he made me believe it. One day, he broke my collar bone, and I had to hitch-hike to the emergency room, and I passed out on the side of the road, and somebody found me. My dad told him that he'd press charges and that he'd go to jail unless he donated money to my college fund. Then he did. $75, 000.
Augusten Burroughs: That's so great. So if you'd just apply--
Natalie: My dad spent it. Every penny. So that the IRS wouldn't take this house. So... I do know what it's like, Augusten... to love somebody who doesn't deserve it. 'Cause they're all you have. God, I hate my life.
Augusten Burroughs: I hate this kitchen. I need high ceilings.
Natalie: Me too.
Augusten Burroughs: Let's get rid of it then. Let's take down the ceiling.

Sir Leigh Teabing: Robert! Do I owe you money?
Robert Langdon: Leigh, my friend. Care to open up for an old colleauge
Sir Leigh Teabing: Of course.
[Robert goes to shut the door]
Sir Leigh Teabing: But first, a test of honor. Three questions
Robert Langdon: [Somewhat annoyed] Fire away!
Sir Leigh Teabing: First, shall I serve coffee or tea?
Robert Langdon: Tea, of course.
Sir Leigh Teabing: Correct. Next question, Milk or Lemon?
Robert Langdon: That would depend on the tea now.
Sir Leigh Teabing: Correct! Now the kast and most grave of inquiries. In which year did a Harvard honor student outrow an Oxford student at Henley?
Robert Langdon: [Reluctantly] Surely such a travesty has never occurred.

Where would we be without our painful childhoods?

Dr. Finch

And tell him he dresses like a gigolo!

Jenny Curran: His name's Forrest.
Forrest Gump: Like me.
Jenny Curran: I named him after his daddy.
Forrest Gump: He got a daddy named Forrest, too?
Jenny Curran: You're his daddy, Forrest.

Frodo: [after destroying the Ring] I can see the Shire. The Brandywine River. Bag End. The Lights in the Party Tree.
Sam: Rosie Cotton dancing. She had ribbons in her hair. If ever I were to marry someone, it would have been her. It would have been her.
Frodo: [leans over and hugs him] I'm glad to be with you, Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things.

Prostitute: I'm clean, no HIV.
Danny Archer: Yeah, I've heard that before.

Maddy Bowen: You lost both your parents.
Danny Archer: That's a polite way of putting it, yea. Mum was raped and shot and uh... Dad was decapitated and hung from a hook in the barn. I was nine... boo-hoo right?

I will find you... If it takes my life

Maverick: Jesus Christ, and you think I'm reckless? When I fly, I'll have you know that my crew and my plane come first.
Charlie: Well, I am going to finish my sentence, Lieutenant. My review of your flight performance was right on.
Maverick: Is that right?
Charlie: That is right, but I held something back. I see some real genius in your flying, Maverick, but I can't say that in there. I was afraid that everyone in the tax trailer would see right through me, and I just don't want anyone to know that I've fallen for you.

Joseph Palmi: You're the guys that scare me. You're the people that make big wars.
Edward Wilson: No, we make sure the wars are small ones.

You know what I tell people when they ask why I don't use the word "the" when I talk about CIA? Do you put a "the" in front of God?
