I'm not sure if a thread like this exists but I thought we should have a place where we can post some of our favourite lines and quotes from movies and TV shows and books.

Here are some that come to mind immediately, though I'm sure I'll be back to post more later as time goes on:

"Me? I'm dishonest. And a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest- honestly, it's the honest ones you have to look out for, 'cause you never know when they're gonna do something incredibly stupid" - Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" - Rhett Butler, Gone With The Wind

"Yippee kai-yay mother****er" John McClure, Die Hard

"Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everybody's gonna die. Come watch TV" - Rick Sanchez, Rick and Morty

"If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals" - Sirius Black, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

"All get what they want; they do not always like it" - Aslan, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

"Choosers will be beggars if the begging's not their choosing" - The Disreputable Dog, Lirael

"People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can't trust people" - Super Hans, Peep Show

“Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.” -Geralt of Rivia, The Last Wish
