You think I am brave because I carry a gun; well, your fathers are much braver because they carry responsibility, for you, your brothers, your sisters, and your mothers. And this responsibility is like a big rock that weighs a ton. It bends and it twists them until finally it buries them under the ground. And there's nobody says they have to do this.

      Peter O'Toole as Don Quixote

  44. I shall impersonate a man. His name is Alonso Quijana, a country squire no longer young. Being retired, he has much time for books. He studies them from morn till night and often through the night and morn again, and all he reads oppresses him; fills him with indignation at man's murderous ways toward man. He ponders the problem of how to make better a world where evil brings profit and virtue none at all; where fraud and deceit are mingled with truth and sincerity. He broods and broods and broods and broods and finally his brains dry up. He lays down the melancholy burden of sanity and conceives the strangest project ever imagined - -to become a knight-errant, and sally forth into the world in search of adventures; to mount a crusade; to raise up the weak and those in need. No longer will he be plain Alonso Quijana, but a dauntless knight known as Don Quixote de La Mancha.
      Peter O'Toole as Miguel de Cervantes

  45. I've been a soldier and a slave. I've seen my comrades fall in battle or die more slowly under the lash in Africa. I've held them in my arms at the final moment. These were men who saw life as it is, yet they died despairing. No glory, no brave last words, only their eyes, filled with confusion, questioning "Why?" I don't think they were wondering why they were dying, but why they had ever lived. When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? To surrender dreams - -this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all - -to see life as it is and not as it should be.
      Peter O'Toole as Miguel de Cervantes

  46. Not well? What is illness to the body of a knight-errant? What matter wounds? For each time he falls, he shall rise again, and woe to the wicked. A knight must not complain of his wounds, though his bowels be dropping out.
      Peter O'Toole as Don Quixote

  50. I have never had the courage to believe in nothing.
      Peter O'Toole as Miguel de Cervantes

  51. The Man Who Would Be King (1975)

  52. In any place where they fight, a man who knows how to drill men can always be a King. We shall go to those parts and say to any King we find - "D'you want to vanquish your foes?' and we will show him how to drill men; for that we know better than anything else. Then we will subvert that King and seize his Throne and establish a Dynasty.
      Sean Connery as Daniel Dravot

      Kathleen Turner as Dolores Benedict

These guys sit in front of their sets and the gamma rays eat the white cells of their brains out!
      Woody Allen as Isaac Davis

      Diane Keaton as Mary Wilke

      Laurence Olivier as Christian Szell

  76. Well, you four have the dubious honor of having been picked from over two hundred applicants for this seminar. Well, let me just say this. There's a shortage of natural resources.

  101. My idea of a perfect school is one in which there are no children at all.
      Pam Ferris as Agatha Trunchbull

  102. Harry Wormwood had unintentionally given his daughter the first practical advice she could use. He had meant to say, "When a child is bad." Instead he said, "When a person is bad." And thereby introduced a revolutionary idea: that children could punish their parents. Only when they deserved it, of course.
      Danny DaVito as the Narrator

  106. The Matrix (1999)

  107. I know why you're here, Neo. I know what you've been doing... why you hardly sleep, why you live alone, and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You're looking for him. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn't really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It's the question that drives us, Neo. It's the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.

      Carrie-Ann Moss as Trinity

  110. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.

Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.
      Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith

      Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith

  116. Never send a human to do a machine's job.

      Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus

      Michael Palin as Catholic Father

      Guy Pearce as Leonard Shelby

      Guy Pearce as Leonard Shelby

  126. I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there?... Yeah. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I'm no different.
      Guy Pearce as Leonard Shelby

  127. I was the only guy who disagreed with the cops - and I had brain damage.
      Guy Pearce as Leonard Shelby

  128. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I'm no different.

  131. Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training.
      Rip Torn as Zed

  132. You'll dress only in attire specially sanctioned by MiB special services. You'll conform to the identity we give you, eat where we tell you, live where we tell you. From now on you'll have no identifying marks of any kind. You'll not stand out in any way. Your entire image is crafted to leave no lasting memory with anyone you encounter. You're a rumor, recognizable only as deja vu and dismissed just as quickly. You don't exist; you were never even born. Anonymity is your name. Silence your native tongue. You're no longer part of the System. You're above the System. Over it. Beyond it. We're "them." We're "they." We are the Men in Black.
      Rip Torn as Zed

  133. A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it.
      Tommy Lee Jones as Kay

      Tommy Lee Jones as Kay

  135. I hate the living.
      Linda Fiorentino as Dr. Weaver

  136. Everything they've ever "known" has been proven to be wrong. A thousand years ago everybody knew as a fact, that the earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew that the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on it. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.
      Tommy Lee Jones as Kay

  137. There's always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser, or a Corillian Death Ray, or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet, and the only way these people can get on with their happy lives is that they Do... Not... Know about it!
      Tommy Lee Jones as Kay

  138. Message in a Bottle (1999)

  139. If some lives form a perfect circle, other take shape in ways we cannot predict or always understand. Loss has been part of my journey. But it has also shown me what is precious. So has love for which I can only be grateful.

  140. Michael (1996)

  141. You can never have too much sugar.

      Dustin Hoffman as Ratso Rizzo

  148. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (1997)

  149. This place is fantastic; it's like "Gone With The Wind" on mescaline. They walk imaginary pets here, Garland. And they're all heavily armed and drunk. New York is boring!
      John Cusack as John Kelso

  150. I'm what they call "nouveau riche," but then, it's only the "riche" that counts.
      Kevin Spacey as Jim Williams

      Irma P. Hall as Minerva

      Kevin Spacey as Jim Williams

      Jennifer Coolidge as Amber Cole

  157. This is not an occult science. This is not one of those crazy systems of divination and astrology. That stuff's hooey, and you've got to have a screw loose to go in for that sort of thing. Our beliefs are fairly commonplace and simple to understand. Humankind is simply materialized color operating on the 49th vibration. You would make that conclusion walking down the street or going to the store.
      John Michael Higgins as Terry Bohner

  158. Million Dollar baby (2004)
