The line after the GREAT line
« on: November 12, 2009, 06:01:41 AM »
Ok, so the way this works is someone posts the line in the script after an ALL TIME GREAT movie line.

For instance:

"You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours."

Someone would reply

"I love the smell of napalm in the morning"
- Apocolypse Now


And for the sake of argument, we'll expand the definition of "great" to mean "very well known"

the thing about the "it was you charley" line is, at least for me, the line after the great line is about as equally well-known as the great line. Here's another example of that:

"I can't let him go. I can't. There must be some way to bring him back. Oh, I can't think about that now. I'll go crazy if I do, I...I'll think about it tomorrow. I must think about it. I must think about it. What is there to do? What is there that matters?"

true.  Proabably not the best example.  (but it was 4:00AM when I posted it :) )

i wasn't criticizing. the first one i checked out was "looks like we're not in kansas anymore." but the next line was equally famous.

ok, this one was suggested by my workmate here. what's the famous line that precedes the following:

"Whores!  Cowards!   You think you can kill me with lousy bullets hunh?"

I didn't know it so I looked it up.  Good one.  I'll see if someone else can guess...
