Way too easy I know, but what a line.

Doug Adams made it look so easy, with his extraordinary wit and ability to concoct a phrase. I put him in the pantheon with the likes of Twain, Wilde, Waugh, et al.

"You want me to hold the chicken, huh?"

"I want you to hold it between your knees".

(For the movie buffs, if you know the film, there are two women in the scene: name 'em. One became famous later for something very different.)

Les Cinq Morceaux Facile.

But not sure about the women who are watching Jack try to get toast served....Karen Black? And maybe Sally Struthers...I know she's in the film, but it's a long time. Black was in Nashville. SS was Archie Bunker's daughter.

Karen Black is one. The other is Toni Basil. "Oh, Mickey. you're so fine" (used to have a crush on her, before I got my mind right)

After watching Godfather II for the 50000000th time, it's finally snapped how Michael sussed Fredo was the traitor. Watch from 1:35 - 1:39

I remember GFI better than the others, having seen it more times, so I don't remember how Fredo was found out in GFII. I just remember how his too-friendly bond with Moe Green, in GFI, kind of set up the character arc....how his weaknesses might lead to his demise in a sequel. And Michael, in GFI, sees Vegas as so corrupting in a way that's at odds with the NYC business model and the Corleone style. "Get rid of the girls," etc. Now I'm curious, will have to see GFII again.

It was at the porno club that Fredo took them all to and he mentioned the place was recommended by Johnny Ola (played by Dom Chianese who later played Uncle Junior in the Sopranos). Fredo had earlier denied knowing Johnny Ola who was Hyman Roth's henchman so it became obvius that Fredo knew and was working in cahoots with Hyman Roth and so had played a part in the attempted hit on Michael at his home.

1:36 - "You don't know my brother, Fredo. Johnny Ola, Fredo." - Michael (an introduction. Fredo and Johnny have never met... *cough*)

"We never met. Johnny Ola." - Johnny Ola

"Pleasure" - Fredo

Now, if you remember, we now enjoy a performance starring "Superman", a dude with an unfeasibly long member...


1:38:

"Hey, Freddy, where did you find this place?" - that nice Nevada senator

"Johnny Ola told me about this place. He brought me here. I didn't believe it, but seeing is believing". -Fredo


Oops!!

watch Michael's face. Scarier than flying with China Eastern Airlines.

Dang, Forest, you sure know your Godfather. More proof, as if it were needed, that archaeologists never do anything except watch gangster films.

Wizard of Oz, Godfather 2.

Here's a short film whose dialog consists entirely of the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen...

Outlaw Josey Wales!! Love that movie!

My favourite line of that movie is, "Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.".

Sorry Badger for not responding to your question, but I finally am catching up with this thread today. Thanks Brainvat for responding to Badger! :)

Here is a line from another movie I love:

"There... is... no... sanctuary."
"There... is... no... sanctuary."
"There... is... no... sanctuary."

Well in the category of famous final lines, here's a couple of real golden oldies although too easy:

"Well that Chinatown."

or "Soylent Green is people!"

"It's a helluva thing killing a moderator. Y'take away all he's got, and all he's ever gonna have".

Another clue:

"Who's the fellah owns this shithole?"

(to the pedants: yes, we know, he omitted a critical relative pronoun)

Ship's is Unforgiven....Clint Easywood.

Badger's might be Shawshank Redemption, but that's just a WAG.

Character 1: You despise me, don't you?

Character 2: If I gave you any thought I probably would.



Related, in a way, but not the same film:



Character 1: You always have a very smooth explanation ready.

Character 2: What do you want me to do, learn to stutter?

The first one is Bogie and Peter Lorre, in Casablanca.

The second one is familiar, but I can't quite get it. Could it also involve Mr. Bogart? Key Largo? Hints, if no?

Correct on the first one and yes, Bogart again, but not Key Largo. Here is another from the same film, but not Bogart this time:

Better and better. I distrust a close-mouthed man. He generally picks the wrong time to talk and says the wrong things. Talking's something you can't do judiciously, unless you keep in practice.
