    Full Metal Jacket

    "I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a strait razor. That's my dream. It's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering along the edge of a strait razor... and surviving... But we must kill them. We must incinerate them. Pig after pig. Cow after cow. Village after village. Army after army. And they call me an assassin. What do you call it when the assassins accuse the assassin? They lie. They lie, and we have to be mericful for those who lie. Those nabobs. I hate them; I do hate them."

    Apocalypse Now

    "him? oh, he's a nihilist. he doesn't care about anything."
    "oh, that must be exhausting."

  12. I think Fight Club is the most quotable movie.

    Narrator: "You're insane!"
    Tyler: "No. I think you'll find that you're insane."

    Narrator: "I... I don't know. I guess... when people think
    you're dying, they really listen, instead..."
    Marla: "-Instead of just waiting for their turn to speak."

    Tyler: "Any last words?"
    Narrator"I can't think of anything."

    Tyler: "Did you know that if you mix equal parts
    of gasoline and equal parts frozen orange juice
    concentrate, you can make napalm?"
    Narrator: "No, I did not know that, is that true?
    Tyler: "That's right. One can make all kinds of
    explosives using simple household items."
    Narrator: "Really."
    Tyler: "If one were so inclined."

    "Like everyone else, I had become a
    slave to the IKEA nesting instinct.
    If I saw something like clever coffee
    table sin the shape of a yin and yang,
    I had to have it. I would flip through
    catalogs and wonder, "What kind of dining
    set defines me as a person?" We used to
    read pornography. Now it was the Horchow
    Collection. I had it all. Even the glass
    dishes with tiny bubbles and imperfections,
    proof they were crafted by the honest,
    simple, hard-working indigenous peoples of
    wherever."
    ~Narrator~

    "For six months, I couldn't sleep.
    With insomnia, nothing is real.
    Everything is far away. Everything
    is a copy of a copy of a copy."
    ~Narrator~

    "When deep space exploration ramps up,
    it will be corporations that name
    everything. The IBM Stellar Sphere.
    The Philip Morris Galaxy. Planet
    Starbucks."
    ~Narrator~

    "That old saying, how you always hurt
    the one you love, well, it works both
    ways."
    ~Narrator~

    "And then... something happened. I let go.
    Lost in oblivion -- dark and silent
    and complete. I found freedom. Losing
    all hope was freedom."
    ~Narrator~

    "I wanted to destroy something beautiful."
    ~Narrator~

    "With a gun in your mouth, you speak only
    in vowels."
    ~Narrator~

    "I wanted to put a bullet between the eyes of
    every panda that wouldn't screw to save its
    species."
    ~Narrator~

    "If you wake up at a different time
    and in a different place, could you
    wake up as a different person?"
    ~Narrator~

    "Worker bees can leave
    Even drones can fly away
    The queen is their slave."
    ~Narrator Haiku~

    "A guy started at Fight Club, his ass was a wad of cookie
    dough. After a few weeks, he was carved out of wood."
    ~Narrator~

    "After fighting, everything else in your life has
    got the volume turned down."
    ~Narrator~

    "Our generation has had no Great Depression, no Great War.
    Our war is spiritual. Our depression is our lives."
    ~Tyler~

    "You have a kind of sick desperation in your laugh."
    ~Tyler~

    "You are not your job.
    You are not how much you have in the bank.
    You are not the contents of your wallet.
    You are not your ****ing Khakis.
    You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake.
    You are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of
    the world."
    ~Tyler~

    "You are not special. You are not a
    beautiful or unique snowflake. You are
    the same decaying organic matter as
    everything else."
    ~Tyler~

    "We are a generation raised by women.
    I'm wondering if another woman is the answer."
    ~Tyler~

    "How much can you know about yourself
    if you've never been in a fight?"
    ~Tyler~

    "The things you own end up owning you."
    ~Tyler~

    "You just had a near-life experience."
    ~Tyler~
     
  13. I liked this line from Adaptation.

    Not rules, principles. McKee writes: "A rules says, you must do it this way. A principle says...this works...and has through all remembered time."


    Oh yeah, this line was classic from the Big Lebowski.

    Hey, hey, careful man! There's a beverage here!

    "I love the smell of napalm in the morning."

    Apocalypse Now

    Earnest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I believe the second part.

    As soon as i clicked on this thread, i was hoping someone was going to mention Fight Club.

    the "narrarator" is also "Tyler", as played by Ed Norton.




    "Guys with that type of brutal honesty make me grow a big rubbery one"
    -narrarator.
