    A few of my favorites, not mentioned elsewhere:

    The Big Lebowski -- "I'm the Dude!"
    Jeremiah Johnson -- "Are you sure you know how to skin griz?"
    The Natural -- "I came here to play ball."
    The Crossing -- "We'll be going in with cold steel."
    Scent of a Woman -- "No mistakes in the tango!"
    Team America, World Police -- "Freedom costs a buck-oh-five!"
    Taffin -- "Remember what I told you when you turn against me."
    Once Upon a Time in Mexico -- "Have you ever seen one of these? Have you ever used one? Don't ever because, they're very very bad. But right now I need you to aim it at the bad guy who's following us, and shoot him in the head."
    Cheers,

    Nice catch Rodc, I forgot about Scent of a Woman. Pacino's speach is one of the best in movie history.
    So I will revise my list. Brian's Song and Scent of a Woman tied for favorite.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Well guys I am shocked that we are the only three. Godfather I and II are the two greatest films ever to see the screen.

    There are a whole bunch of good ones but they all come after those two.

    Oops, forgot to mention this one:

    Rollerball (1975) -- "Don't try to frighten me, you don't know how."

    And one more:

    Blade Runner -- "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

    Glad to see someone acknowledge The Gods Must Be Crazy. A nice reminder of what a silly place we humans have here.

    Well, great and favorite can be two different things. No doubt, the GF pair are fine films.

    That's the one. The original story used Gnut as the name of the robot.

    "Gnut," he said earnestly, holding carefully the limp body in his arms, "you must do one thing for me. Listen carefully. I want you to tell your master the master yet to come that what happened to the first Klaatu was an accident, for which all Earth is immeasurably sorry. Will you do that?"
    "I have known it," the robot answered gently.
    "But will you promise to tell your master just those words as soon as he is arrived?"
    "You misunderstand," said Gnut, still gently, and quietly spoke four more words. As Cliff heard them a mist passed over his eyes and his body went numb.
    As he recovered and his eyes came back to focus he saw the great ship disappear. It just suddenly was not there anymore. He fell back a step or two. In his ears, like great bells, rang Gnut's last words. Never, never was he to disclose them til the day he came to die.
    "You misunderstand," the mighty robot had said. "I am the master."

    I did a quick skim, I guess I may be the only one... But I thought 'The Killing Fields' was an incredible movie (and it was based on true events).

    Also, more recent and more light hearted, 'Juno' was very entertaining and clever. I have a young daughter so it freaks me out, but still the dialog was fantastic.
