FYC: 2014 Best Line
« on: July 29, 2014, 03:31:05 AM »
We'll keep this first post updated with whatever potential nominees get mentioned in the thread below.



BEST LINE

Note: Lines in blue are those with multiple mentions.

22 Jump Street
"I thought we had Cate Blanchett." 

Boyhood
"I thought there'd be more."
"It's like it's always right now."
"You don't want the bumpers. Life doesn't give you bumpers."

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
"Ape…did…this."
"Human work."

The Drop
"They never see you coming, do they bob?"

The Fault in our Stars
"Mom, if you want me to be a teenager you don't send me to support group. You gotta, like, get me a fake ID so that I can go clubs and drink gimlets and take pot."

Foxcatcher
"Most of my friends call me 'Eagle' - or 'Golden Eagle'."

Fury
"I promised my crew a lot time ago to keep them alive. You're getting in the way of that."

The Grand Budapest Hotel
"You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, f—k it."
"What happened, my dear Zero, is I beat the living shit out of a sniveling little runt called Pinky Badinski, who had the gall to question my virility. Because, if there's one thing we've learned from penny dreadfuls, it's that when you find yourself in a place like this, you must never be a candy ass. You've got to prove yourself from day one. You've got to win their respect. You should take a long look at his ugly mug this morning... He's actually become a dear friend."
"Rudeness is merely the expression of fear. People fear they won't get what they want. The most dreadful and unattractive person only needs to be loved, and they will open up like a flower."

The Guardians of the Galaxy
"We are just like Kevin Bacon!"
"Nothing goes over my head. My reflexes are too fast. I would catch it."

Ida
"Get married, have kids, live. You know, the usual."

The Immigrant
"You are not nothing."

Joe
"You make the pain face, like you got a lot on your mind, and then smile."

The Lego Movie
"Hi, I'm President Business, president of the Octan corporation and the world. Let's take extra care to follow the instructions or you'll be put to sleep, and don't forget Taco Tuesday's coming next week."
"You don't have to be the bad guy. You are the most talented, most interesting, and most extraordinary person in the universe. And you are capable of amazing things. Because you are the Special. And so am I. And so is everyone. The prophecy is made up, but it's also true. It's about all of us. Right now, it's about you. And you... still... can change everything."
"Honey, where are my pants?"

Life Itself
"And for me, the movies are like a machine that generates empathy. It lets you understand a little bit more about different hopes, aspirations, dreams and fears. It helps us to identify with the people who are sharing this journey with us."

Listen Up Philip
"Here's a piece of paper with some staples in it.... Wish I could be of more help."

Locke
"Don't trust god when it comes to concrete."

Nightcrawler
"What if my problem wasn't that I don't understand people, but that I don't like them?"

Nymphomaniac
"Fill all my holes."

The Rover
"What a thing to get worked up about, especially in this day and age."
"You should never stop thinking about a life you've taken - it's the price you pay for taking it."

Snowpiercer
"Know your place. Accept your place. Be a shoe."

Starred Up
"Please let go of Officer Johnson."

Stranger by the Lake
"You guys have a strange way of loving each other sometimes."

The Trip to Italy
"How many Batmen have you buried?"

What If
"I just had sex. I'm about to eat nachos! It's the greatest moment of my life!"
"You just killed my sex nacho high."

Whiplash
"There are no two words in the English language more harmful than 'good job'."
"That's not my tempo."

The Wind Rises
"Would you prefer a world with or without pyramids?"

Can we just nominate Scarlett Johansson's complete opening "monologue" from Under the Skin?

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

"Ape…..did….this."  All in the delivery.  That or "Human work."

The Rover

"What a thing to get worked up about, especially in this day and age."

22 Jump Street

"I thought we had Cate Blanchett."  There are most definitely better lines from this film, but I can't remember them at the moment.

I think about that a lot!
