"Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown."

This next one is tricky because the sentence before it is part of the quote, but it's a huge Spoiler from
The Godfather Part II - "You broke my heart."
The Godfather Part II - "My final offer is this: nothing."

and to keep it classy...
Female Trouble - "I've DONE everything a mother can do. I've locked her in her room. I've beat her with the car aerial. Nothing changes her. It's hard being a loving mother."
