Doing Lines

I have been reading Harry Potter to my sons and this past weekend we got to watch the first movie. My boys loved it so much that they watched it 3 times in a row because I fell asleep. I was so tired. Anyway while I was still conscious I got to hear one of my favorite lines from the movie. Let me give you some background.

Filtch was taking Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Draco out to Hagrid's place to serve detention for being out of bed after hours. They were to be going into the "forbidden forest" to help a unicorn and Filtch was complaining.
"Detention has changed. It used to be you would find yourself hanging by your thumbs in the dungeon. How I miss the screaming."

This led me to think of some of my other favorite lines from movies and TV. So what are yours?

How about this one:

"Take me to bed or lose me forever."

Too bad it just makes Ches laugh. ;)

Yah Tim never got off on that one either. Hollywood is a bunch of liars. On the more philosophical side, how about this one. Of corse I'm paraphrasing.

"it is not.... " Oh i'm gonna have to look it up Lord of the Rings fellowship. I'll finish later.

It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.

Hit it!
