    We watched the Sixth Sense earlier and I was reminded of great line said by the boy (Cole) when asked what sort of pictures he draws:

    " I draw... people smiling, dogs running, rainbows. They don't have meetings about rainbows."

    What are your favorite lines?

    Julie: I can't believe I trusted him...
    Helen: Well, what did you expect from a kid like that?
    Julie: Oh, Mom, back off. The last guy you dated stole our furniture.

    From Parenthood. There's lots of great lines in that movie, but after looking at them on IMDB, I couldn't post most of them that I like without getting bleeped!

    I watched Georgia Rule last night on TV. A line that cracked me and difficult child up.

    Grma: "You cut your hair!"
    Mom: " Yeah, it was getting in the way of my drinking."

    We both burst out laughing.

    "It's just a flesh wound." - Monty Python. I use that all the time when I cut myself on various body parts with my blade cutter. I'm spewing blood from a finger or leg from being stabbed by the darn thing and a coworker will gasp..."OMG." Naw, it's just a flesh wound. :)

    by the way - I only have 5 of them on me right now. Stupid company makes you use 'regulation' cutters which are a piece of crud. They don't automatically retract so I slice open a box and without thinking and jam the thing in my pocket. Oopsss....nice slice in the leg. I keep a secret nice cutter hidden in the other pocket when no management is around.:tongue:

    Girl #1: What are you *doing*?
    Girl #2: Are you *crazy*?

    One of my all time favorite movies is "Somewhere in Time" with Christoper Reeve and Jane Seymour - the one where he figures out a way to go back in time to 1912 to meet the woman whose portrait he has fallen in love with. It's just so beautiful - the setting, the clothes, the music, and it's so intriguing with the time travel aspect! I've seen it hundreds of times, know every line by heart.

    This would sound so dumb if you've never seen the movie, but my favorite line is when he's arrived at the hotel in 1912 and he's wandering the grounds looking for her and he sees her for first time. He approaches her and they just stare at each, spellbound in amazement for a minute, and then she finally stammers out, "Is it you?" ... and he says "Yes!" Blows me away every time!

    Witz: I love the movie Parenthood, too. I liked before kids, but afterwards it really hit home.

    Mine would have to be from Terms of Endearment. Again, a movie I loved before I had kids, and I loved this scene in particular. I had no idea I would go through nearly the same experience myself years later with Daughter. Many great lines in this movie, but my favorite is this scene:

    Aurora's daughter is losing her battle with cancer and is on medication to ease the pain. It's time for her next dose and the nurse has not arrived to give it to her. Aurora walks up to the nurses station to inform them that it is time to give the shot to her daughter and is met with "someone will be right there" and "that's not my patient". Aurora incrementally gets more upset by being casually brushed off until finally she explodes difficult child meltdown force:


    The terrified nurse of "not my patient" fame runs to the room with a syringe in her hand.

    Having accomplished her mission, Aurora smooths her clothes and her hair and politely whispers, "Thank you" before returning to her daughter's room.

    Betty Davis, can't remember the name of the movie, says "Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy night".

    That line comes from one of my all time favorite movies: All About Eve.

    Oh, and I think it goes:

    "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night."

    That was said by Bette Davis in All About Eve.

    Here are some more that I like:

    Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing

    Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society

    And for a chuckle . . .

    Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates in Psycho
