...you wish you had said, or could say in 'real life', so to speak?

Fried Green Tomatoes. "Face it girls, I'm older and I have more insurance!"

In "Liar Liar" I love it when Jim Carey says "And the truth shall set you free" and I say it IRL whenever I get the chance!

I am of course aware it is originally from the bible....

Not the exact quote per se, but an adaptation when dealing with annoying people: from Gangs of New York (when Bill commissions Jack to kill Amsterdam; ensuring a distinct unblurring of where Jack sits in the pecking order)

"Here's the thing. I don't give a tuppenny fuck for your moral conundrum you meat headed shit sack. That's pretty much the thing"

"What if this is it? What if this is as good as it gets?" Jack Nicholson said in his therapists waiting room.

"You've got red on you" sean of the dead - i say this frequently at work.

These are great, especially the Fried Green Tomatoes one! I confess that I have a tendency to rattle off Monty Python quotes for most occasions, but a friend said "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" the other day and it got me thinking...

I also love it in Dangerous Liaisons when Glenn Close says during a verbal battle with John Malkovich:

"One of the reasons I have never remarried, despite a quite bewildering array of offers, is a determination NEVER AGAIN to be ordered about. I must therefore ask you to adopt a less marital tone."

Terrible I know but I remember when I was a kid and I'd watched this movie where the character said "jheez who died" and I always wanted to say it, then one day my aunt came over and her and my mum were crying and hugging and I blurted out "jheez who died" and honestly the look they both gave me was like I had just said the worst thing in the world..... It weren't until about an hour later when my dad pulled me to the side and told me my grandad died that morning that I realised what I said was truly the worst thing I could of said blush LOL. I felt terrible but I was only 6 or 7. Think it's safe to say that I've avoided using lines from movies since that day!! Lol

Your ego's writing cheques your body can't cash - Top Gun. I just love it grin

One I do use is I'll think about that tomorrow from Gone with the Wind
