    Nacho Libre (2006)

  1. Orphans, smile and be happy. For God has blessed us with a new teacher. She hails from the Oaxaca Parish Convent of the Immaculate Hearts Sisters Ladies Mountains of Guadalupe. Sister Encarnacion.
      Enrique Muņoz as Seņor Ramon


  2. Chancho. When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. It's for fun.
      Jack Black as Nacho


  3. Ok. Orphans! Listen to Ignacio. I know it is fun to wrestle. A nice piledrive to the face or a punch to the face but you cannot do it. Because, it is in the Bible not to wrestle your neighbour.
      Jack Black as Nacho


  4. I don't want to get paid to lose. I wanna win!
      Jack Black as Nacho


  5. There is no place for me in this world. I don't belong out there, and I don't belong in here. So I'm going out into the Wilderness. Probably, to die.
      Jack Black as Nacho


  6. My mother gave it to me before she died. It was her lucky machete. You can have it.
      Darius Rose as Chancho


  7. Napoleon Dynamite (2004)

  8. I spent like three hours doing shading the upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done.
      Jon Heder as Napoleon Dynamite


  9. I'm Rex, founder of the Rex Kwan Do self-defense system! After one week with me in my dojo, you'll be prepared to defend yourself with the strength of a grizzly, the reflexes of a puma, and the wisdom of a man. At Rex Kwan Do, we use the buddy system. No more flying solo. You need somebody watching your back at all times. Second off, you're gonna learn to discipline your image. You think I got where I am today because I dressed like Peter Pan over here? Take a look at what I'm wearing, people. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys? Forget about it. Last off, my students will learn about self respect. You think anybody thinks I'm a failure because I go home to Starla at night? Forget about it!
      Diedrich Bader as Rex


  10. Vote for me, and all your wildest dreams will come true.
      Efren Ramirez as Pedro Sanchez


  11. A liger. It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed - bred for its skills in magic.
      Jon Heder as Napoleon Dynamite


  12. I caught you a delicious bass.
      Jon Heder as Napoleon Dynamite


  13. Welcome to D-Qwon's dance grooves, are you ready to get your groove on?

  14. Nashville (1975)

  15. Who do you think is running Congress? Farmers? Engineers? Teachers? Businessmen? No, my friends. Congress is run by lawyers. A lawyer is trained for two things and two things only. To clarify - that's one. And to confuse - that's the other. He does whichever is to his client's advantage. Did you ever ask a lawyer the time of day? He told you how to make a watch, didn't he? Ever ask a lawyer how to get to Mr. Jones' house in the country? You got lost, didn't you? Congress is composed of five hundred and thirty-five individuals. Two hundred and eighty-eight are lawyers. And you wonder what's wrong in Congress. No wonder we often know how to make a watch, but we don't know the time of day.
      Thomas Hal Phillips as Hal Philip Walker


  16. National Treasure (2004)

  17. Who wants to go down the creepy tunnel inside the tomb first?
      Justin Bartha as Riley Poole


  18. Door number one, you go to prison for a very long time. Door number two, we are going to get back the Declaration of Independence, you help us find it, and you still go to prison for a very long time, but you feel better inside.
      Harvey Keitel as Sadusky


  19. If there's something wrong, those who have the ability to take action have the responsibility to take action.
      Nicholas Cage as Ben Gates


  20. A toast? Yeah. To high treason. That's what these men were committing when they signed the Declaration. Had we lost the war, they would have been hanged, beheaded, drawn and quartered, and-Oh! Oh, my personal favorite-and had their entrails cut out and burned! So - Here's to the men who did what was considered wrong, in order to do what they knew was right... what they knew was right.
      Nicholas Cage as Ben Gates


  21. You know, Agent Sadusky, something I noticed about fishing? It never worked out so well for the bait.
      Nicholas Cage as Ben Gates


  22. National Velvet (1944)

  23. What's the meaning of goodness if there isn't a little badness to overcome?
      Anne Revere as Mrs. Brown


  24. That'll be a dispute to the end of time, Mr. Brown: whether it's better to do the right thing for the wrong reason or the wrong thing for the right reason.
      Anne Revere as Mrs. Brown


  25. Some day you'll learn that greatness is only the seizing of opportunity - clutching with your bare hands 'til the knuckles show white.
      Mickey Rooney as Mi Taylor


  26. Network (1976)

  27. I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's work, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad.
      Peter Finch as Howard Beale


  28. I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!'
      Peter Finch as Howard Beale


  29. You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it. Is that clear? You think you've merely stopped a business deal? That is not the case. The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back. It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity. It is ecological balance. You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations; there are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems; one vast, interwoven, interacting, multivaried, multinational dominion of dollars.
      Ned Beatty as Arthur Jensen


  30. Never Give a Succer an Even Break (1941)

  31. I was in love with a beautiful blonde once, dear. She drove me to drink. That's the one thing I'm indebted to her for.

  32. I feel as though somebody stepped on my tongue with muddy feet.
      W.C. Fields as The Great Man


  33. Never Say Never Again (1983)

  34. Good to see you Mr. Bond. Things've been awfully dull 'round here. I hope we're going to see some gratuitous sex and violence in this one!
      Alec McCowen as 'Q'


  35. The New World (2005)

  36. Conscience is a nuisance. A fly. A barking dog.
      Yorick van Wageningen as Captain Argall


  37. You're like a herd of deer! How can you own land? This earth was made for such that shall improve it! And knows how to live!
      Noah Taylor as Selway


  38. A Night at the Opera (1935)

  39. And now, on with the opera. Let joy be unconfined. Let there be dancing in the streets, drinking in the saloons, and necking in the parlor.
      Groucho Marx as Otis B. Driftwood


  40. When I invite a woman to dinner I expect her to look at my face. That's the price she has to pay.
      Groucho Marx as Otis B. Driftwood


  41. Of course, that's why I'm sitting here with you. Because you remind me of you. Your eyes, your throat, your lips! Everything about you reminds me of you. Except you. How do you account for that? If she figures that one out, she's good.
      Groucho Marx as Otis B. Driftwood


  42. Signor Lassparri comes from a very famous family. His mother was a well-known bass singer. His father was the first man to stuff spaghetti with bicarbonate of soda, thus causing and curing indigestion at the same time.
      Groucho Marx as Otis B. Driftwood


  43. A Night to Remember (1958)

      Joseph Tomelty as Dr. William O'Loughlin


  46. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

    Filling your dreams to the brim with fright.

      Ken Page as The Oogie Boogie Man


  48. Just because I cannot see it, doesn't mean I can't believe it!
      Chris Sarandon as Jack Skellington


  49. Release me now or you'll have to face the dire consequences
    The children are expecting me, so please come to your senses.

      Edward Ivory as Santa


  50. North by Northwest (1959)

  51. Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself "slightly" killed.
      Cary Grant as Roger Thornhill


  52. Not that I mind a slight case of abduction now and then, but I have tickets for the theater this evening, to a show I was looking forward to and I get, well, kind of unreasonable about things like that.
      Cary Grant as Roger Thornhill


  53. Has anyone ever told you that you overplay your various roles rather severely, Mr. Kaplan?
      James Mason as Phillip Vandamm


  54. In the world of advertising, there's no such thing as a lie. There's only expedient exaggeration.
      Cary Grant as Roger Thornhill


  55. Call it my women's intuition, if you will. But I've never trusted neatness. Neatness has always been the form of very deliberate planning.
      Martin Landau as Leonard


  56. How does a girl like you get to be a girl like you?
      Cary Grant as Roger Thornhill


  57. That wasn't very sporting, using real bullets.
      James Mason as Phillip Vandamm


  58. Notting Hill (1999)

  59. No thanks, I'm a fruitarian. We believe that fruits and vegetables have feeling so we think cooking is cruel. We only eat things that have actually fallen off a tree or bush - that are, in fact, dead already.
      Emma Bernard as Keziah


  60. I live in Notting Hill. You live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are, my mother has trouble remembering my name.
      High Grant as William Thacker
