    Default Best lines from tv and film....your favorites

    Thought it might be a good thread... i love superbly written scripts..

    Here is one from Blackadder 2, when Edmond is in conversation with redbeard rum the sea captain

    Ha. -Aah! You have a woman's purse! [takes it from him and
    examines it daintily] I'll wager that purse has never been
    used as a rowing-boat. I'll wager it's never had sixteen
    shipwrecked mariners tossing in it.

    One of my Alan Partridge favourites.

    My favourite is a Clint Eastwood line from 'High Plains Drifter':

    'Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining'.

    Closely followed by the line from 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre':

    'Badges? We don' need no steenkin' badges!'

    Lots of good lines in Eastwood films: Outlaw Joey Wales has some crackers:

    'Are you going to pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?'

    'Not a hard man to track. Leaves dead men wherever he goes.'

    From 'To Have and Have Not', and said by the sultry Lauren Bacall in her debut role:

    "You know how to whistle Steve don't you? You just put your lips together - and blow."


    From 'Apocalypse Now':

    "Charlie don't surf"
