Well, I'll tell you, with all the movies there, I would like to know what are the Sleuthers favorite quotes. You know, things said by characters that leave an imprint in you mind. It could be finny or sad or long as it isn't anything dirty. Well my favorite comes from the best comedy movie of 1985, based on the best-selling board game " Clue"

In the game, Mrs. White is a maid. In the movie, she's a widow that her husband has mysteryiously died...

Anyway Miss Scarlet says to Mrs. White if she miss her husband and in returned Mrs White says:

"Well you see it's a matter of life after death. Now that he's dead I have a life."

Anyway...what's yours?

From Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End..

Jack Sparrow: You know, for all that pirates are clever-called, we are an unimaginative lot when it comes to naming things.

Gibbs: Like?

Jack Sparrow: I once sailed with a geezer lost both his arms and part of his eye.

Gibbs: What did you call him?

Jack Sparrow: [pause] Larry.

(of course my favourite movie quote changes fairly often, but at the moment this one has me smiling, which is rare)

What a great thread! I am one of those people who is constantly performing lines from movies. At present moment, I gotta say I'm very fond of the line from Overboard, "Eat your checkers" by Miss Goldie Hawn.

I definately agree with Lady Zeugirdor. "You're gonna need a bigger boat." from Jaws of course....

My fav. quote from the movies has to be from the movie ConAir

"Put the bunny back in the box"-Nicholas Cage

However my alltime favorite quote is from the 80's tv show The A-Team

"I love it when a plan comes together!"-George Peppard /"Hannibal Smith"

If you read the original script for the movie "Jaws" the line "You're gonna need a bigger boat" isn't in it. It was something said during the filming of the movie, liked all around and put in. And today it's one of the most famous quotes in movie history, and almost defining for "Jaws". Unfortunately it's also one of the worlds most famous misquotes. A lot of people incorrectly recall the exclamation Police Chief Martin Brody to be "We're gonna need a bigger boat".

Charlotte your quote is rather appropriate for a Sleuth... seems to me I see about 16 dead people at least at crime scenes each day.

I love the Goonies so Sloth's quote is great. And the Bunny and the Boat... eek never was very decisive.

But I'd have to cheat and go for a TV quote like Scott as my favourite:

So from Inspector Morse "Death Is Now My Neighbour" and partial inspiration for our agency's name:

Adele Cecil: This anagram, "around eve"â€"I've tried and I've tried, but all I can come up with is "Endeavour". And no-one's called Endeavour, surely?

Morse: I told youâ€"my mother was a Quaker, and Quakers sometimes call their children names like Hope, and Patience. My father was obsessed with Captain Cook, and his ship was called Endeavour. Why aren't you both laughing?

Lewis: You poor sod.

Adele Cecil: I'm not calling you "Endeavour".

Lewis: Call him "sir". He likes that.

Adele Cecil: Oh no, no,â€"I'll stick to "Morse", like everyone else.

Morse: [Raises his glass of beer.] Cheers.

I've always especially liked Lewis' reaction!
