In a democracy -- even if it is a so-called democracy like our white-litist one -- the greatest veneration one can show the rule of law is to keep a watch on it, and to reserve the right to judge unjust laws and the subversion of the function of the law by the power of the state. That vigilance is the most important proof of respect for the law.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The truth is, I do indulge myself a little the more in pleasure, knowing that this is the proper age of my life to do it; and, out of my observation that most men that do thrive in the world do forget to take pleasure during the time that they are getting their estate, but reserve that till they have got one, and then it is too late for them to enjoy it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Mrs. Croft: Don't cry, Jane. They'll hear you.
[Mrs. Wilson can't stop crying]
Mrs. Croft: Come on. You did what you thought was best for him at the time. I see that now.
Mrs. Wilson: Lizzie... I've lost him, Lizzie. I've lost him, he'll never know me. My boy...
[sobs]
Mrs. Wilson: Oh, my boy!
Mrs. Croft: [putting a hand on her shoulder] At least your boy is alive. He's alive. That's what matters.
[Mrs. Wilson touches her sister's face, and hugs her, crying softly]More [04/22/2007 12:04:00]

Bob Hauk: [reading Plissken's file] S.D. Plissken... American, Lieutenant: Special Forces Unit "Black Light". Two Purple Hearts, Leningrad and Siberia. Youngest man to be decorated by the President. Then you robbed the Federal Reserve Depository... life sentence, New York maximum security penitentary. I'm about to kick your ass out of *the world*, war hero...
Snake Plissken: [calmly strikes a match against Hauk's desk to light his cigarette and in a bored tone of voice] Who're you?
Bob Hauk: Hauk, Police Commissioner.
Snake Plissken: Bob Hauk...
Bob Hauk: Special Forces Unit "Texas Thunder"... we heard of you too, Plissken.More [10/16/2007 12:10:00]
Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: [Chamberlain is addressing his junior officers before the Confederate assault on Little Round Top] Gentlemen... the 83rd Pennsylvania, 44th New York, and 16th Michigan will be moving in to our right. But if you look to our left, you will see that there is no one there. It's because we're the end of the line. The Union army stops here. We are the flank. Do you understand, gentlemen? We cannot retreat. We cannot withdraw. We are going to have to be stubborn today. So, you put the boys in position, you tell them to stay down. Pile the rocks up high; get the best protection you can. I want the reserve pulled up about 20 yards. This is sloping ground, it's good ground. If you have any breakthroughs, if you have men wounded, if you have a hole in the line, you plug it with the reserve. How are we fixed for ammunition?
Capt. Ellis Spear: Sir, I think about 60 rounds per man.
Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: That's good. 60 rounds. I think - I... yes, that's adequate. Any questions?
Young 20th Maine Officer: Colonel... seems to me the fighting's on that side of the hill.
Older 20th Maine Officer: Yep. Seems to me that we're the back door. Everything's goin' on at the front door.
[all but Chamberlain laugh]
Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: Well, gentlemen, that hill is steep. It's rocky. It's bare. To come straight up it is impossible. No. The Reb army is going to swing around. It's gonna come up through that notch right over there. It'll move under the cover of trees, try to get 'round the flank. And gentlemen... *we* are the flank. Gentlemen.
[he salutes, and all the others return it]
Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: God go with you.More [12/12/2007 12:12:00]
[Blumentritt has just gotten off the phone with General Max Pemsel on Allied airborne landings behind Normandy]
Major General Gunther Blumentritt: Pemsel is convinced this is the invasion.
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: No no no, I do not agree with him. This is my conclusion.
[Von Rundstedt points to the main map]
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: Normandy is the site of a diversion. A diversion, Blumentritt! That is not where the main landings will take place, that will come at Pas-de-Calais, where it was always expected!
[Von Rundstedt then realizes what he has just said]
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: [to himself] Where we always expected it.
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: [to Blumentritt] We can't take any chances. I want the reserve panzers moved forward.
Major General Gunther Blumentritt: But we need permission from the Fuhrer's headquarters.
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: They won't dare refuse me! Call the Fuhrer's headquarters and insist. Insist, Blumentritt! Insist the panzers be released to me.
[as Blumentritt leaves the office to call Berlin, Von Rundstedt returns to the main map]
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: A landing at Normandy would be against military logic. It would be against ALL logic.More [08/10/2008 12:08:00]

Elsa Middleton:
Just waiting breathlessly for the world's handsomest man to come home.



Dr. Donald Middleton:
Well, that's what I called you about. I won't be able to get home at all today. I wanted to call and let you know in time. You see, I'm right in the middle of an important experiment. I don't think I'll even be able to make it in time for dinner.



Elsa Middleton:
But darling, this is May Saturday.



Dr. Donald Middleton:
Uh-oh. May Saturday. Well, couldn't we possibly put it off till next week?



Elsa Middleton:
No, dear, we couldn't put it off. Oh, I know that sounds like a very selfish wife, but twice a year I reserve the right to be selfish. Twice a year I insist on coming between you and your work.



Dr. Donald Middleton:
But darling, I'm doing all this for you and Molly.



Elsa Middleton:

Billy Wade:
They're talkin' about a half million in cash. That kind of money doesn't lie around loose.



George Landon:
No, not often, Billy. Just once in a while, when they run short of cash around here and the bank has a big shipment from the Federal Reserve in San Francisco.



Billy Wade:
Yeah, I remember those hauls, those Wells Fargo wagons from Benton - twenty shotgun and rifle guards.



George Landon:
No. They only use six guns now - since you retired.

Col. Paul Foster:
Wonderful fettucine...



Jane Carson:
And a fat Italian Mama who does all the cooking?



Col. Paul Foster:
You've been there! I'll reserve a table for two.



Jane Carson:
And we'll sit and look at the stars.



Col. Paul Foster:
And our only problem will be...



Jane Carson:
How the devil do we eat fettucine thru a quarter-inch space visor?

[at a supply depot somewhere in France]



Oddball:
We see our role as essentially defensive in nature. While our armies are advancing so fast and everyone's knocking themselves out to be heroes, we are holding ourselves in reserve in case the Krauts mount a counteroffensive which threatens Paris... or maybe even New York. Then we can move in and stop them. But for 1.6 million dollars, we could become heroes for three days.

Shang Tsung:
Challenging Goro eh? You weren't supposed to fight him now. Are you THAT eager to die?



Cage:
I'm not the one who's gonna die.



Shang Tsung:
I see. You're very foolish. A true sign of a hero. You want to protect your friends, but make no mistake; they too will die, after Goro destroys you.



Cage:
So what's the problem?



Shang Tsung:
As you wish. As absurd as your request is I shall grant it. In return, I reserve the right to challenge the winner myself... or another of my choosing. In a place designated by me for the final battle of the tournament.



Cage:
You got it pal.

Mrs. Dashwood:
Why so grave? You disapprove her choice?



Marianne:
By no means. Edward is very amiable.



Mrs. Dashwood:
Amiable? But?



Marianne:
There is something wanting. He's too sedate. His reading last night...



Mrs. Dashwood:
Elinor has not your feelings. His reserve suits her.



Marianne:
Can he love her? Can the soul be really be satisfied with such polite affections? To love is to burn - to be on fire, like Juliet or Guinevere or Eloise...



Mrs. Dashwood:
They made rather pathetic ends, dear.



Marianne:
Pathetic? To die for love? How can you say so? What could be more glorious?



Mrs. Dashwood:
I think that would be taking your romantic sensibilities a little far.

Colonel Gordon Tall:
John, I'm convinced that the Japanese position can be broken right now. All we have to do is keep going and we'll have this hill. We'll have this hill by sundown! You see the spirit in these men? Do you see the new spirit? Well, I want to take advantage of that before something happens to sap their strength. To have this battalion relieved in a defeat, or even to have it reinforced by troops from a reserve regiment, if we were stalled before reaching the top, well, Jesus Christ, that's just a hell of a lot more than I could stand! I've waited all my life for this. I've worked, slaved, eaten untold buckets of shit to have this opportunity and I don't intend to give it up now.

[Lyle walks in]



Lyle Finster:
There she is, the woman who set my heart on fire.


[Karen rolls her eyes]



Lyle Finster:
Which is a nice change, since the women I'm usually with cause a burning feeling in an altogether different area.



Karen:
Get lost, David Cop-a-feel. Just because we once made out like drunk straight girls at a frat party, doesn't mean you're wanted here.



Grace:
[to Lyle] Hi. Welcome to my office. And we usually reserve this kind of talk for casual sex Friday.



Lyle Finster:
Oh, I'm so sorry. I didn't see you there. Lyle Finster.



Grace:
Finster? Oh my God. You're Lorraine's father. You tricked Karen into kissing you.



Karen:
That's right. And it ain't never gonna happen again. No, sir. Not on my watch.



Lyle Finster:
I understand. But I only came here to return the kiss that you left on my lips.



Karen:
What? Give it back!


[Karen jumps on Lyle and they start making out and growling]



Grace:
If you'll excuse me, I'm just gonna go in the back and gouge out my eyes and puncture my eardrums.



Karen:
Oh, no, honey, stay. I was just taking back my -


[realizes]



Karen:
Hey!



Lyle Finster:
Karen, I'm lost without you. I've tried to fill the void with secretaries and whores, but at the end of the hour, it's you I wish I was paying.



Grace:
Really, I'm uncomfortable.



Karen:
It's never gonna happen between us, Lyle. So beat it.



Lyle Finster:
Very well. But I'll never forget you. Every mouth that I kiss will be your mouth. Every bottom that I slap will be your bottom. Every nipple that I tweak...



Grace:
Please, one of us has to go!



Karen:
Get out.



Lyle Finster:
Very well. But know this: Every vagina...
