THE BEST Action Movie Quote..Ever.
 
This is a quest of mine...that never ends...

Here's mine for openers:

"
Co Bao: Why did they pick you? Because you like to fight?
Rambo: I'm expendable.
Co Bao: What mean expendable?
Rambo: It's like someone invites you to a party and you don't show up. It doesn't really matter. "

Gentlemen, weapon of choice.....

Anything from any of the Die Hards before Die Hard 4 (and maybe excluding Die Hard 2). Action gold that can't be beat.

Duke Nukem: I don't know what it is, but I don't like it.
Time to kick *** and chew gum, and I'm all out of gum.

Army of Darkness:
Duke Henry: I am Henry the Red. Duke of Shale, Lord of the Northlands and leader of its peoples.
Ash: Well hello Mister Fancypants. Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things: Jack and s***... and Jack just left town.

That's all I got.

Wait! Dodge this. Nuff said.

Well, since most is not WFS, I won't quote it... but anything from the first scene of "Full Metal Jacket" always get's my blood pumping.

Although Army of Darkness comes in a very close second with me with:

Ash: Now listen up, you primitive screwheads. This... is my BOOMstick! The 12-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel... and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. YOU GOT THAT?!

Boondock Saints... the ending in the courtroom


Connor: Now you will receive us.
Murphy: We do not ask for your poor, or your hungry.
Connor: We do not want your tired and sick.
Murphy: It is your corrupt we claim.
Connor: It is your evil that will be sought by us.
Murphy: With every breath we shall hunt them down.
Connor: Each day, we will spill their blood till it rains down from the skies.
Murphy: Do not kill, do not rape, do not steal, these are principles that every man of every faith can embrace.
Connor: These are not polite suggestions, these are codes of behavior and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost.
Murphy: There are varying degrees of evil, we urge you lesser forms of filth not to push the bounds and cross over, into true corruption, into our domain.
Connor: For if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three. And on that day, you will reap it.
Murphy: And we will send you to whatever god you wish.
Connor, Murphy, Il Duce: And shepherds we shall be, For thee my lord for thee. Power has descended forth from thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out thy commands. So we shall flow a river forth to thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be.
Il Duce: In nomine Patri
Connor: Et Fili
Murphy: Spiritus Sancti

And of course, you can't leave out:

"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

Teasle: That's just great. Colonel, you came out here to find out why one of your machines blew a gasket!
Trautman: You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Vietnam his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Rambo was the best.

Hopefully the new Rambo will have some good lines....the trailer looks awesome.

Re: THE BEST Action Movie Quote..Ever.
 
By far, my favorit qutoe (maybe not the best, but my favorite) is this... which builds up to R. Lee Armey's perfect delivery of the last line... "Because you were hungry."...

Holy *****! What is that? What the **** is that? WHAT IS THAT, PRIVATE PYLE?
Private Gomer Pyle: Sir, a jelly doughnut, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: A jelly doughnut?
Private Gomer Pyle: Sir, yes, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: How did it get here?
Private Gomer Pyle: Sir, I took it from the mess hall, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Is chow allowed in the barracks, Private Pyle?
Private Gomer Pyle: Sir, no, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Are you allowed to eat jelly doughnuts, Private Pyle?
Private Gomer Pyle: Sir, no, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: And why not, Private Pyle?
Private Gomer Pyle: Sir, because I'm too heavy, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Because you are a disgusting fat body, Private Pyle!
Private Gomer Pyle: Sir, yes, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Then why did you try to sneak a jelly doughnut in your foot locker, Private Pyle?
Private Gomer Pyle: Sir, because I was hungry, sir!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Because you were hungry...

I don't know, Bob. That whole intro scene: "I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your senior drill instructor..." How do you choose?

Bob Guere 12-08-2007 11:19 PM

Re: THE BEST Action Movie Quote..Ever.
 
Well, I went to AF bootcamp in 88, and all the drill instructors used all those lines on us. Many of us hadn't seen the movie yet, so it was all pretty effective. I just love listening to Gunny while he's holding up that donut like it's baby poop on one end and he doesn't want to touch it.

"....because you were hungry." Love it.

You're right though, John, that goes down in history as one of the best opening scenes ever, if not THE best opening to a war movie.

I'm sure Marines hold a much stronger affection to it as well.

Don't know if these are necessarily "Action Movies" but....

I have always liked the between round talks from "Rocky IV"
Duke: You got him hurt. He's hurt bad. You see, he's not a machine...he's a man.

Rocky: I see 3 of them out there.
Pauly: Hit the one in the middle.
Duke: Yeah, hit the one in the middle.

From "Se7en"

Brad Pitt: When a person is insane, as you clearly are, do you know that you're insane? Maybe you're sitting around reading Guns and Ammo, masturbating in your own feces, do you just stop and go...."wow it is amazing how effing crazy I am. Do you guys do that?"

From "Heat"

Pacino: If it's between you and some poor $%^&#@+ who's wife you are going to turn into a widow.....brother, you are going down.
Deniro: There's a flip side to that coin. What if you do got me boxed in, and I gotta put you down? Because no matter what, you will not get in my way. We've been face to face, yeah. But I will not hesitate, not for a second.

Fight Club

Tyler Durden: "Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy sh** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pi**ed off."

From the movie "The Incredibles"

After Mr. Incredible could not kill Mirage in order to be released.

MIRAGE

He's not weak, you know.

SYNDROME

What?

MIRAGE

Valuing life is not weakness.

SYNDROME

Oh, hey. Look, look…if you're talking about what happened
in the containment unit, I had everything under control.

MIRAGE

And disregarding it is not strength.

SYNDROME

I called his bluff, sweetheart, that's all. I knew he
wouldn't have it in him to actually…

MIRAGE

Ok, it's not strictly an action movie - but it is a classic:

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

[Ferris has snuck aboard a parade float]
Ferris: Ladies and gentlemen, you are such a wonderful crowd, we'd like to play a little tune for you. It's one of my personal favorites and I'd like to dedicate it to a young man who doesn't think he's seen anything good today - Cameron Frye, this one's for you.
Cameron: [screams]
Sloane: Ferris! Get off of the float!

Good call!

Basically anything from "Predator" which, in my mind, is the most ****-swining movie in the history of ****-swinging movies.

"Wassa matta Dillon, CIA got you pooshing too many pencils?"

Said by Chong Li in a stilted manner:

"Veddy good - But brick not hit back"

"Bloodsport" when Frank Dux performs the "Dim Mak" move on the pile of bricks to show that he has the proper training for the Kumite.

The line was stolen though from "Enter The Dragon" though.
