Hmmmmm. Very interesting, Bill.
I have a good friend who recently told me she wants to watch Charley Varrick with me. Looks like you convinced me not to procrastinate!

I want to take a moment to sincerely THANK everyone at this thread for all of your contributions. When I started it, I expected it to go down in flames fast, and it is tremendously satisfying to me that I was so very wrong about that. Even more satisfying has been getting familiar with all of the fabulous dialogue y'all have brought here that I'd never before known about! My NETFLIX cueue just keeps getting longer and longer, and I love it!

May this thread live to be 1000!

Mr. Storyteller sir, you are allowed to do anything you like here.
Consider this your home away from home.

I hope you never leave!

From the The Ninth Configuration.

"And you know what that heartless butcher prescribed? He said, 'here, take this. It's a suicide pill, with a mild laxative side effect.' What kind of bedside manner is that?"

NATIONAL TREASURE: Book Of Secrets.

Ben Gates has kidnapped the President of the United States for an interview:

"Sir, I know the book exists, and my question is...will you agree to let me see it?"

"Even if something like that really did exist, WHY do you think I would actually just give it to you?"

"Because it will probably lead us to the discovery of the greatest Native American treasure of all time. A huge piece of culture lost. You can give that history back through its descendants. And because...you're the President of the United States, sir. Whether by innate character, or the oath you took to defend the constitution, or the weight of history that falls upon you, I believe you to be an honorable man...sir."

"Gates...people don't believe that stuff anymore."

"They want to believe it."

ALL ABOUT EVE

Eve Harrington is receiving the Sarah Siddon's Society Award for best actress in the theatre. As she approaches the podium, acidic theatre critic Addison DeWitt narrates with a few of his observations:

"Eve. Eve, the golden girl. The cover girl. The girl next door. The girl on the moon. Time has been good to Eve. Life goes where she goes. She's been profiled, covered, revealed, reported, what she eats and what she wears, whom she knows and where she was and when and where she's going. Eve. You all know all about Eve. What can be to know that you don't know?"

You know, that is rather a profound observation. I've never seen this film, but might seek it out now.

BLOOD SIMPLE

Marty and Visser sit in a car and discuss the possible future murder of Marty's wife and lover. Visser notices Marty's finger is broken.....


Visser - Stick your finger up the wrong person's ass? You know, a friend of mine, a while back, broke his hand and put it in a cast. The very next day he falls, protects his bad hand and breaks his good one. So now, he breaks that too, ya know, in the fall. So now he's got two busted flippers. So I says to him, 'Creighton, I hope your wife really loves you, cuz for the next five weeks you can't even wipe your own goddamn ass!' (laughs) That's a test, aint it? A test of true love?

Marty - I got a job for you.

Visser - Oh, well. If it pays right and it's legal, I'll do it.

Marty - It's not strictly legal.

Visser - Well, if it pays right, I'll do it.

Marty - It's in reference to that gentleman and my wife. The more I think about it, the more irritated I get.

Visser - Yeah well, could you tell me what it is you want me to do, or is it a secret?

Marty - This is no joke.

Visser - You want me to kill 'em.

Marty - Well?

Visser - Well what?

Marty - Whadaya think?

Visser - You're an idiot.

Marty - So this won't interest you.

Visser - I didn't say that. All I said was 'You're an idiot'. Hell, you been thinkin' about it so much it drive you simple.

Marty - I'll give you ten thousand dollars.

Visser - And I'm supposed to do a murder. No, two murders....and trust you not to go simple on me and do somethin' stupid. I mean really stupid. Now, why should I trust you?

Marty - For the money.

Visser - The money, yeah. That's a right smart of money. In Russia, you make only fifty cents a day. I want you to go fishing.

Marty - What?

Visser - Go down to Corpus for a few days. Get yourself noticed. I'll give you a call when it's done. You just find a way to cover that money.

Marty - I'll take care of the money. You make sure those bodies aren't found. There's a big incinerator behind my place.

I have probably quoted this before, but my favorite common sense dialogue from a monster flick comes from Michael Gross as survivalist Bert Gummer in TREMORS:

"I don't get it--No track, no sign. You'd think that with all those sheep they ate they'd have to take a dump SOMEWHERE!"

Storyteller, I'm just getting STARTED with All About Eve. One of the greatest scripts in the history of scripts! And one of the best films ever.

WATCH THIS THREAD...MORE TO COME!

Casablanca. One of my all time favourite films.

Renault: I've often speculated on why you don't return to America. Did you abscond with the church funds? Did you run off with a Senator's wife? I like to think that you killed a man. It's the romantic in me.

Rick: It's a combination of all three.

Renault: And what in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?

Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

Renault: The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.

Rick: I was misinformed.

ALL ABOUT EVE

Karen Richards is the best friend of celebrated actress Margo Channing. Margo is the toast of Broadway, and Karen is outside the theatre door on her way to Margo's dressing room when she meets Eve, a waif who idolizes Margot.
She tells Eve to wait outside, but is immediately engaged in a heated argument with her best friend.

"It's just that you get me so mad sometimes. Of all the women in the world with nothing to complain about!"
"Ain't it the truth!"
"Yes it is! You're talented, famous, wealthy. People waiting around night after night just to see you, even in the wind and the rain."
"Autograph fiends! They're not people! Those little beasts that run around in packs like coyotes!"
"They're your fans! Your audience!"
"They're NOBODY'S fans! They're juvenile delinquents! They're mental defectives! They're NOBODY'S audience! They never see a play or a movie even. They're never indoors long enough."
"Well, there's one indoors right now. I brought her back to see you."
"WHAT?"
"She's just outside the door..."

ALL ABOUT EVE

Margo and her lover, director Bill Samson are at the airport.
He's on his way from Broadway to Hollywood to fulfill a film contract with Darryl Zanuck.

"She's quite a girl, this what's her name."
"Eve. I've forgotten they grew that way."
"That lack of pretense, that note of strange directness and understanding."
"Did she tell you about the theatre? What it meant?"
"No, I told her. I sounded off."
"All the religions in the world rolled into one, and we're gods and goddesses. Isn't it silly? Suddenly I've developed a big protective feeling toward her. A lamb, loose in our big stone jungle...(Bill grabs her coat lapels and draws her close to him.) ...Take care of yourself out there."
"I understand they have the indians pretty well in hand."
"Bill..."
"Mmm?"
"Don't get stuck on some glamor puss."
"I'll try."
"You're not much of a bargain you know, you're conceited and thoughtless and messy."
"But everybody can't be Gregory Peck."
"You're a set-up for some gorgeous, wide-eyed young babe."
"How childish are you gonna get before you stop it?"
"I don't want to be childish. I'd settle for a few years."
"Then cut that out right now."
"Am I going to lose you, Bill? Am I?"
"As of this moment you're six years old."
(They move in to kiss when Eve arrives with the airline ticket.) "All ready!"
(Margo, Bill and Eve walk to the departure gate.)
"Thanks for your help. Good luck."
"Goodbye, Mr. Samson."
(Bill embraces Margo.)
"Knit me a muffler?"
"Call me when you get it."
(They hug and kiss passionately. Bill heads to the plane, and yells at Eve)
"HEY, JUNIOR! Keep your eye on her! Don't let her get lonely! She's a lamb loose in a jungle!"

Absolute Power had lots of good back-and forth dialogue, witty exchanges, etc.
Luther Whitney (Clint Eastwood) leaves behind, while on a White House tour, an envelope with a picture of the bloody (with the President’s blood) letter opener which he took from the murder scene. He’s ticked now and wants to make a point, since President Richmond (Gene Hackman) has made a hypocritical show of his pretend misery over murder of Christy Sullivan.
Chief of Staff Gloria Russell (Judy Davis), Agent Collin (Dennis Haysbert) and Agent Burton (Scott Glenn) discuss this new twist to the plot. Burton says:
Burton: “He doesn’t want money.”
Gloria: “Oh…oh, you’re a mind reader, now!”
Burton: “No, I just looked on the back (of the picture).”
Gloria: (Reads the note aloud) “'I don’t want money'. Okay, how do I handle this?”
Burton: “The same way you handled the letter opener?”
Gloria: “Gee, Bill, that could be construed to be criticism. Do you really want me for an enemy?”
Burton: “Miss Russell, I should've called the police that night but I was weak. You convinced me to stay silent. I regret that. Know this: every time I see your face, I wanna rip your throat out.

And didn’t we all? Judy Davis was almost too convincing in her role.

ALL ABOUT EVE

Margo Channing has a conversation with her assistant, "Birdie".

"Birdie..."
"Mmm?"
"You don't like Eve, do you?"
"Do you want an argument or an answer?"
"An answer."
"No."
"Why not?"
"Now you want an argument."
"She works hard."
"Night and day."
"She's loyal and efficient."
"Like an agent with only one client."
"She thinks only of me, doesn't she?"
"Well let's say she thinks only ABOUT you anyway..."
"How do you mean that?"
"I'll tell ya' how. Like...like she's STUDYING you. Like you was a play or a book or a set of blueprints. How you walk, talk, eat, think."
"I'm sure that's very flattering, Birdie. I'm sure there's nothing wrong with it."
