Post Your Favorite Conversation between 2 Movie Characters

From The Magnificent Seven (1960)~

(Eli Wallach plays Calvera and Yul Brynner plays Chris)

[Calvera has just captured the Seven]
Calvera: What I don't understand is why a man like you took the job in the first place, hmm? Why, huh?
Chris: I wonder myself.
Calvera: No, come on, come on, tell me why.
Vin: It's like a fellow I once knew in El Paso. One day, he just took all his clothes off and jumped in a mess of cactus. I asked him that same question, "Why?"
Calvera: And?
Vin: He said, "It seemed to be a good idea at the time."

From Doctor Strangelove (1964)

[seeking change for a pay phone to avert world nuclear annihilation...]
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake(Peter Sellers): Colonel... that Coca-Cola machine. I want you to shoot the lock off it. There may be some change in there.
Colonel "Bat" Guano (Keenan Wynn): That's private property.
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Colonel! Can you possibly imagine what is going to happen to you, your frame, outlook, way of life, and everything, when they learn that you have obstructed a telephone call to the President of the United States? Can you imagine? Shoot it off! Shoot! With a gun! That's what the bullets are for, you twit!
Colonel "Bat" Guano: Okay. I'm gonna get your money for ya. But if you don't get the President of the United States on that phone, you know what's gonna happen to you?
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: What?
Colonel "Bat" Guano: You're gonna have to answer to the Coca-Cola company.

Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that.
[kneels]
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like
[sniffing, pondering]
Kilgore: victory. Someday this war's gonna end...

That is the phrase that I remember.

Now, I love the smell of money in the morning, when the Dow opens up.

Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!

Heard that phrase for years before I actually saw "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" and saw it spoken by a mustachioed Mexican army dude with a sombrero and those big bullet belts worn criss-crossing the chest. (The Mexican army dude had just been asked for identification)

I love this scene between Vizzini and The Man in Black/The Dread Pirate Robert/Wesley in the Princess Bride:



with the memorable line:

One of many.

The Dead Collector: Bring out yer dead.
[a man puts a body on the cart]
Large Man with Dead Body: Here's one.
The Dead Collector: That'll be ninepence.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not dead.
The Dead Collector: What?
Large Man with Dead Body: Nothing. There's your ninepence.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not dead.
The Dead Collector: 'Ere, he says he's not dead.
Large Man with Dead Body: Yes he is.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not.
The Dead Collector: He isn't.
Large Man with Dead Body: Well, he will be soon, he's very ill.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm getting better.
Large Man with Dead Body: No you're not, you'll be stone dead in a moment.
The Dead Collector: Well, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I don't want to go on the cart.
Large Man with Dead Body: Oh, don't be such a baby.
The Dead Collector: I can't take him.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I feel fine.
Large Man with Dead Body: Oh, do me a favor.
The Dead Collector: I can't.
Large Man with Dead Body: Well, can you hang around for a couple of minutes? He won't be long.
The Dead Collector: I promised I'd be at the Robinsons'. They've lost nine today.
Large Man with Dead Body: Well, when's your next round?
The Dead Collector: Thursday.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I think I'll go for a walk.
Large Man with Dead Body: You're not fooling anyone, you know. Isn't there anything you could do?
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I feel happy. I feel happy.
[the Dead Collector glances up and down the street furtively, then silences the Body with his a whack of his club]
Large Man with Dead Body: Ah, thank you very much.
The Dead Collector: Not at all. See you on Thursday.
Large Man with Dead Body: Right.

Several that make me laugh, although you to know the movie/context for them to be funny...

From Stripes
Psycho: The name's Francis Soyer, but everybody calls me Psycho. Any of you guys call me Francis, and I'll kill you.
Leon: Ooooooh.
Psycho: You just made the list, buddy. And I don't like nobody touching my stuff. So just keep your meat-hooks off. If I catch any of you guys in my stuff, I'll kill you. Also, I don't like nobody touching me. Now, any of you homos touch me, and I'll kill you.
Sergeant Hulka: Lighten up, Francis.

From Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Economics Teacher: Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Cameron: The 1961 Ferrari 250GT California. Less than a hundred were made. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion.
Ferris: It is his fault he didn't lock the garage.

From Caddyshack
Ty Webb: You take drugs, Danny?
Danny Noonan: Every day.
Ty Webb: Good. Then what's your problem?
Danny Noonan: I don't know.

From A Fish Called Wanda
Otto: Don't call me stupid.
Wendy: Why on earth not?

From Risky Business
Service Manager: Who's the U-Boat Commander?

That is the greatest TV drama. Better than a lot of trash that made it to the big screen.

Omar Little had fantastic lines. One of my favorites comes at the end of this clip when he takes on the worm Levy in court:

from animal house

D-Day: War's over, man. Wormer dropped the big one.
Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
Bluto: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...
Bluto: the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!

From my all time favorite movie, The Lion in Winter (not in order):

Eleanor: [to her jewelry] I'd hang you from the nipples, but you'd shock the children.

later

Henry II: The day those stout hearts band together is the day that pigs get wings.
Eleanor: There'll be pork in the treetops come morning.

and

Eleanor: I even made poor Louis take me on Crusade. How's that for blasphemy. I dressed my maids as Amazons and rode bare-breasted halfway to Damascus. Louis had a seizure and I damn near died of windburn... but the troops were dazzled.

and

Henry II: I marvel at you after all these years. Still like a democratic drawbridge: going down for everybody.
Eleanor: At my age there's not much traffic anymore.

and Eleanor again after driving Henry to apoplexy by describing how she cuckolded him with his own father:

Eleanor: What family doesn't have its ups and downs?

GOODFELLAS: Pesci

"Do you think im funny, do i make you laugh, am i a clown, am i here to amuse you, what the f**k is so funny about me."

Everything Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint say on the train in North by Northwest

Roger: The moment I meet an attractive woman, I have to start pretending I have no desire to make love to her.
Eve
: What makes you think you have to conceal it?
Roger
: She might find the idea objectionable.
Eve
: Then again, she might not.

Eve: I'm Eve Kendall. I'm twenty-six and unmarried. Now you know everything.
Roger
: Tell me. What do you do besides lure men to their doom on the Twentieth Century Limited?
Eve
: I'm an industrial designer.
Roger: Jack Phillips. Western sales manager for Kingby Electronics.
Eve
: No, you're not. You're Roger Thornhill of Madison Avenue, and you're wanted for murder on every front page in America, and don't be so modest.
Roger
: Whoops!
Eve
: Oh, don't worry, I won't say a word.
Roger: How come?
Eve
: I told you. It's a nice face.
Roger: Is that the only reason?
Eve: It's going to be a long night.
Roger: True.
Eve: And I don't particularly like the book I've started.
Roger: Ahhh.
Eve: You know what I mean?
Roger: Uh, let me think. [Pause] Yes, I know exactly what you mean...

Eve: I'm a big girl.
Roger: Yeah, and in all the right places too. [They share a lingering kiss.]
Eve
: You know, this is ridiculous, you know that don't you?
Roger: Yesss.
Eve: I mean, we've hardly met.
Roger
: That's right.
Eve: How do I know you aren't a murderer?
Roger
: You don't.
Eve: Maybe you're planning to murder me right here tonight?
Roger: Shall I?
Eve: Please do. [Another long kiss.]

From "Mystery Men," probably one of my favorite movies ever:

The Shoveller (played by William H. Macy): Lucille, God gave me a gift. I shovel well. I shovel very well.
Lucille: Honey, you shovel better than any man I've ever known, but that does not make you a super hero.
[the Shoveller starts to say something, but Lucille cuts him off]
Lucille: No, listen to me. You're a good husband, and a good father. But that's all. Nothing more.
[she walks offscreen, a small boy wearing a Captain Amazing T-shirt hugs The Shoveller's leg]
Roland, The Shoveler's Son: I believe in you, Daddy!
Lucille: [calling from off-screen] Roland, do *not* encourage your father.

Cloudy: "You wanna play hide-the-salami with his old lady?"
Popeye: "Yeah!"
