'Never go full retard' - Tropic Thunder
I think of The Wizard Of Oz movie as words of wisdom for me.
"Play nice" -- Woody, Toy Story
That's a great one. Toy Story happens to be one of my favorite movies.
Training Day - "Sometimes you gotta have a little dirt on you for anybody to trust you."
If Maxie Heller was so f'in' smart, how come he's so f'in' dead? Prizzi's Honor
Scarlett: "There's only one way you can help me. Take me away. There's nothing to keep us here. Nothing."
Ashley: "Nothing, except honor."

You never open your mouth till you know what the shot is - Ricky Roma (Glengarry Glen Ross)
Ferris Bueller: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
Rannulph Junuh: Grow up Hardy!
Hardy Greaves: It ain't time for me to grow up, Mr. Junuh.
Rannulph Junuh: You're daddy is out sweeping streets because he took every last dime he had, and used it to pay up every man and woman he owed and every business who worked for him, instead of declaring bankruptcy like everyone else in town, including your best friend Wilbur Charles' dad, Raymond, which is why he's able to sit around all day long on his dignity! You're daddy stared adversity in the eye, Hardy. And he beat it back with a broom.
- The Legend of Bagger Vance
Patrick Bateman: Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
"It is possible to overplan. You don't want to turn the crew into robots." Mr Henry, from Bottle Rocket
That's some catch, that Catch-22! -- Yossarian
It's the best catch there is! -- Doc Daneeka

HOWARD: Something up your nose?
Blow it out, it'll do you good.
Don't think you two
are putting anything over on me.
Good one, but it was Marxie!
Boss and Lucius
Well, you've had a lively four days.
What was it like?
What did you do?
You want to hear everything?
Whatever you care to tell me.
We went to Mr. Binford's place.
I am acquainted with Mr. Binford's place.
They've got some very nice ladies there.
You spent the night?
- Corrie put me to bed.
- Who would Corrie be?
She's a friend of Boon's.
She got to be my friend, too.
The next bed I slept in was Uncle Possum's.
He's an old man, like you...
He made me say my prayers.
I guess I'll have to say
a lot of them from now on.
Why is that?
- I've been telling lies.
- Yes, I'm aware of that.
- I can't.
- Why not?
Because you're a liar?
'Cause you're afraid
I won't ever trust you again?
That I don't consider you reliable?
That I've lost my respect for you?
Is that it?
That's a heavy burden to carry, isn't it?
Well, you may have to live with that feeling.
For the rest of my life?
But for a while.
- I can't, Boss.
- Yes, you can. You will.
A gentleman can live through anything.
A gentleman accepts
the responsibilities of his actions...
and bears the burden
of their consequences...
even when he himself
did not instigate them...
but only acquiesced to them...
didn't say no,
though he knew he should have.
Now, come here.
My face was against his stiff collar
and his shirt...
and I could smell him.
The starch, and the shaving lotion...
and the chewing tobacco...
and finally, that faint smell of whiskey
from the toddy...
which he took in bed
every morning before he got up.
There, there, now.
That must have emptied the cistern.
Now, go wash your face.
A gentleman cries, too,
but he always washes his face.
I'll get you out of the doghouse, Lucius.
One of these days,
I'm gonna tell them both that it was me...

"Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets". - Travis Bickle
I fixed it from that, thought I was mis-spelling it
“A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man.”
lol, I saw the thread title, and 'my father taught me many things - he taught me in this room...'
