  1. “I didn’t kill my wife!”
    “I don’t care!”

    No movie has ever summed up its plot, tone, the motivation of its two major characters, and the dynamic and conflict between them in two sentences better than that.

  2. Koba debating Caesar, ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.’ All in sign language.

    Caesar: ‘Let them do their human work. Then they’ll go.’

    Koba: ‘Human work?’ [points to a scar] ‘Human work!’ [points to another] ‘Human work!’ [points to his ruined eye] ‘HUMAN WORK!!’

    Maybe not the greatest of all time, but damn close.

  3. Look up idiot in the dictionary, you know what you’ll find?

    “A picture of me?”

    “No! The definition of the word idiot, which you fucking are!”

  4. – whose motorcycle is this?

    – it’s a chopper, baby.

    – whose chopper is this?

    – it’s Zed’s.

    – who’s Zed?

    – Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.

  5. “Fuck you money” in the gambler

    Jim: I’ve been up two and a half million dollars.

    Frank: What you got on you?

    Jim: Nothing.

    Frank: What you put away?

    Jim: Nothing.

    Frank: You get up two and a half million dollars, any asshole in the world knows what to do: you get a house with a 25 year roof, an indestructible Jap-economy shitbox, you put the rest into the system at three to five percent to pay your taxes and that’s your base, get me? That’s your fortress of fucking solitude. That puts you, for the rest of your life, at a level of fuck you. Somebody wants you to do something, fuck you. Boss pisses you off, fuck you! Own your house. Have a couple bucks in the bank. Don’t drink. That’s all I have to say to anybody on any social level. Did your grandfather take risks?

    Jim : Yes.

    Frank: I guarantee he did it from a position of fuck you. A wise man’s life is based around fuck you. The United States of America is based on fuck you. You’re a king? You have an army? Greatest navy in the history of the world? Fuck you! Blow me. We’ll fuck it up ourselves.

  6. Good Will Hunting – Posted already but also the dialogue between Robin Williams and Matt Damon ‘it’s not your fault..’ also the same film as the best monologue on the bench, and where my username is from
