Thought I would bring a little levity and beautiful moments from the movies.

OK so these are Simplex Vir's favorite tough guy lines from the movies. I know some may not agree, but hey I am writing so BACK OFF! Although feel free to add to it in comments.

10. "A hundred million terrorists in the world and I gotta kill one with feet smaller than my sister." (Bruce Willis in "Die Hard")

9. "You're the disease. I'm the cure." (Sylvester Stallone in "Cobra")

8. "If you come back in here, I'm going to hit you with so many rights, you're going to beg for a left." (Chuck Norris in "Invasion USA")

7. "Dyin' ain't much of a living, boy." (Clint Eastwood in "The Outlaw Josey Wales")

6. "Forgiveness is between them and God, it is my job to arrange the meeting!" (Denzel Washington in "Man on Fire")

5. "Out here due process is a bullet!" (John Wayne in "The Green Berets")

4. "If you try to stop me you're going to end up in an alley somewhere with the cats licking you." (Victor Mature in "Gambling House")

3. "You gonna do somethin'? Or are you just gonna stand there and bleed?" (Kurt Russell in "Tombstone")

Movie Quotes That Every Caveman Should Have Memorized
And most of you already do!

"A little religious communication might not be a bad idea at this stage of the game. Now myself, I don't take any chances, I talk to Mohammed, Buddha, Mr. Jesus H. Christ Himself and any other religious honchos I can come up with." ~ Sgt. Maj. Hafner (R. Lee Ermey) as he tells what's left of his unit that they are surrounded (and heavily outnumbered) by a North Vietnamese Army regiment in The Siege of Firebase Gloria.

"...and who taught you to be playin' patty fingers in the Holy Water!?" ~ Michaleen Oge Flynn (Barry Fitzgerald) in The Quiet Man.

"I want to be the first kid on my block to get a confirmed kill." ~ Private Joker (Matthew Modine) in Full Metal Jacket.

"Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk" ~ Curly Howard in every Three Stooges film.

"I've come to kick ass and chew bubble gum... and I'm all out of bubble gum." ~ Nada (Roddy Piper) in They Live.

"I TOLD you not to make that last payment!" Oliver Hardy yelling at (and hitting with his hat) poor Stan Laurel after they both watch their Model T collapse into many, many pieces before their very eyes in The Stolen Jools.

"And Shepherds we shall be for Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand. Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee. And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, Et Filii, [guns cock] Spiritus Sancti. [they open fire]" ~ The brothers Connor and Murphy MacManus (Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus) in Boondock Saints.

"I am gonna hit you with so many rights, you're gonna beg for a left." ~ Matt Hunter (Chuck Norris) in Invasion, USA.

"It's K-K-K-Ken c-c-c-coming to k-k-k-kill me!" ~ Otto (Kevin Klein) in A Fish Called Wanda.

"Do you see that road over there? Yes. Well... pay no attention to it a'tall. It'll do you no good!" Sean Thornton (John Wayne) getting directions from a helpful Irish train conductor in The Quiet Man.

"Guards! ... Knights! ... Squires! ... Prepare for battle" ~ Sir Kay (Niall O'Brien) in Excalibur.

"Leave the gun. Take the cannoli." ~ Pete Clemenza (Richard Castellano) in The Godfather.

[In heavily accented French] "We're so poor, we can't even afford our own language! We all talk like Maurice Chevalier! Haw, haw, haw!!" ~ Some impoverished peasant in History of the World, Part I.

[Sgt Maj Hafner holds up two severed American heads] "Anyone know who these belong to? This is Corporal Miller. He's dead. Hell, the whole gun crew's dead!! And to add insult to injury, Charlie took the fifty-f*****g caliber machine gun with him! I don't have any respect for Corporal Miller anymore, because he allowed his troops to relax. They let their guard down for five f*****g minutes, and Charlie took advantage of it. Look at 'em, God*****t! Pay attention. Stay alert! Stay alive! It's as simple as that!" ~ Yet again, Sgt Maj Hafner (R. Lee Ermey) gives a motivational speech to the troops on the importance of being alert in The Siege of Firebase Gloria. (I find this one to be particularly funny because it's real-life, typical Marine Corps gallows humor. Yes, we really do say things like this)

"You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin' to? You talkin' to me? Well I'm the only one here. Who the fuck do you think you're talking to?"
- Robert de Niro, Taxi Driver

I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' But to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?
-Clint Eastwood, Dirty Harry

What do you mean I'm funny?
-Joe Pesci, Goodfellas

James Bond: Vodka Martini.
Bartender: Shaken or stirred?
James Bond: Do I look like I give a damn?
-Daniel Craig, Casino Royale

You're a big man, but you're out of shape. With me it's a full time job. Now behave yourself."
- Michael Caine, Get Carter

In this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.
-Clint Eastwood, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

What we do in life, echo's in eternity - Russel Crow, Gladiator

A man who doesn't take care of his family is not a man - Marlon Brando, the Godfather

In ten days I'll have a war on with those Communist bastards, and I'll make it look like THEIR fault - George C. Scott, Patton

Rommel... you magnificent bastard, I read your book! - George C. Scott, Patton
