    I'm watching Kirk Douglas in Ace in the Hole on TCM and I was just floored by these lines:

    A waitress saying, "I met some hard boiled eggs in my lifetime but you....you're 20 minutes!"

    and same character:

    "I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons."

    Keep in mind this is NOT a comedy.

    Patrick Swayze seems to attract bad lines as much as attracts women.

    Road House: "Pain don't hurt."

    Dirty Dancing: "No one puts Baby in a corner."

    In "Urban Cowboy" John Travolta's character says: "Sissy, I love you and I want to apologize clear back to the first time I hit you." Awww....how sweet! :rolleyes:

    From the Irwin Allen craptacular, The Swarm:

    oh, and that's just a tip of the iceberg.

    :eek: That's it! Coming soon, bad dialogue from Titanic! :tongue:

    I love cheesy one-liners, especially in Swarzenegger movies:

    Total Recall

    woman:(while grabbing Arnie's crotch) "Mmm, what have you been feeding this thing?"

    Arnold:.."Blondes"

    :18:

    Seriously, we could make a whole thread about Arnie quotes.

    A Schwarzenegger classic:

    Conan! What is best in life?

    To crush your enemies...see them driven before you...and to hear the lamentations of their women.

    EDIT:
    That's fucking hilarious...I had no idea you guys were doing Arnie quotes when I posted this response!

    Thanks wldhoney, for the Titanic line! :cool:...here's one from that movie:

    "I'd rather be HIS whore than YOUR wife." A bit on the hokey side, nay?

    I realised some time later that this line was used verbatim several years earlier on Twin Peaks by Peggy Lipton. On a nighttime soap created by David Lynch, I can swallow it. In a movie that tried to capture the world of 1912, uhhhhhh. no. :tongue:


    Speaking of David Lynch... I love his stuff, and I love the novel Dune, but Lynch's 1984 version of Dune is a great big ol' mess of a movie that I love and hate at the same time. His longer cut and script drafts indicate a movie that was not only more faithful to the novel than what we saw, but more satisfying as a story than what we eventually got. Be that as it may, there are lines of dialogue in it that, in either their delivery, their faithfulness to the novel (without proper exposition), and just to their general uncinematic nature, are spectacular in their awfulness.

    "And you thought you could bear the Kwizatz Haderach; the universe's superbeing? How DARE you!" (I love that bit of expositoy dialogue so subtly introduced there. That happens a lot in the movie. Such as:

    "The Harkonnens ARE our enemies, yes. But behind them I suspect, is the Emperor.":suspect:

    "I WILL kill him!"

    "I am the Shadout Mapes, the HOUSSSSSSSE- KEEEEPERRRRR."

    "I am Chani. Daughter of Liet."

    "You carry my unborn sister in your womb!" :mad:

    "Then I will teach you our way of battle. You have the word-bond...of a Bene Gesserit!" :mad:
    "It IS the legend!" :eek:

    "Usul has called a big one! Again, it IS the legend!" :smile:

    "Usul...you were calling my name. It frightened me.":guilty:

    "The Worm IS the Spice! The Spice IS the Worm! And I have the POWER to DESTROY the Spice! FOREVER!"

    "KILL this child, she's an abomination! :mad: KILL her!!!!! ~gasp~choke~ GET OUUUUUT OF MYYYY MIIIIIND!":yikes:


    I love cheezy cinema. :biggrin1::rolleyes:

    "They misunderestimated me."

    "Rarely is the questioned asked: Is our children learning?"

    "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."

    "There's an old saying in Tennessee &#8212; I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee &#8212; that says, fool me once, shame on &#8212; shame on you. Fool me &#8212; you can't get fooled again."

    And my favorite Bushism: "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

    Oh, wait. Sorry. With all the Schwartzeneger lines, I thought we were doing Awful Political Lines.
