    Variety's the spice of life. I like a wide selection. Sometimes I'm in the mood for nasty close-ups, sometimes I like them arty and air-brushed. Sometimes it's a spread brown-eye kind of night, sometimes it's girl-on-girl time. Sometimes a steamy letter will do, sometimes - not often, but sometimes - I like the idea of a chick with a horse. - Chasing Amy
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
    [Neo's eyes suddenly wander towards a woman in a red dress]
    Morpheus: Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?
    Neo: I was...
    Morpheus: [gestures with one hand] Look again.
    [the woman in the red dress is now Agent Smith, pointing a gun at Neo's head; Neo ducks]
    Morpheus: Freeze it.
    [Everybody and everything besides Neo and Morpheus freezes in time]
    Neo: This... this isn't the Matrix?
    Morpheus: No. It is another training program designed to teach you one thing: if you are not one of us, you are one of them.

    Agent Smith: I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.

    Morpheus: I imagine that right now, you're feeling a bit like Alice. Hmm? Tumbling down the rabbit hole?
    Neo: You could say that.
    Morpheus: I see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that's not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
    Neo: No.
    Morpheus: Why not?
    Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.
    Morpheus: I know *exactly* what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?
    Neo: The Matrix.
    Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
    Neo: Yes.
    Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work... when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
    Neo: What truth?
    Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.

    The Matrix Trilogy is one of my favorite series. There is so much meaning to the movie if you can resist the flashy action scenes.

    Lewis Prothero: So I read that the former United States is so desperate for medical supplies that they have allegedly sent several containers filled with wheat and tobacco. A gesture, they said, of good will. You wanna know what I think? Well, you're listening to my show, so I will assume you do... I think it's high time we let the colonies know what we really think of them. I think its payback time for a little tea party they threw for us a few hundred years ago. I say we go down to those docks tonight and dump that crap where everything from the Ulcered Sphincter of Ass-erica belongs! Who's with me? Who's bloody with me?
    [audience applauds]
    Lewis Prothero: Did you like that? USA... Ulcered Sphincter of Ass-erica, I mean what else can you say? Here was a country that had everything, absolutely everything. And now, 20 years later, is what? The world's biggest leper colony. Why? Godlessness. Let me say that again... Godlessness. It wasn't the war they started. It wasn't the plague they created. It was Judgement. No one escapes their past. No one escapes Judgement. You think he's not up there? You think he's not watching over this country? How else can you explain it? He tested us, but we came through. We did what we had to do. Islington. Enfield. I was there, I saw it all. Immigrants, Muslims, homosexuals, terrorists. Disease-ridden degenerates. They had to go. Strength through unity. Unity through faith. I'm a God-fearing Englishman and I'm goddamn proud of it!

    V: [V enters Evey's field of vision as she walks into the Shadow Gallery, directly from the prison] Hello, Evey.
    Evey Hammond: You. It was you.
    V: [quietly] Yeah.
    Evey Hammond: [gestures behind her] That wasn't real... Is Gordon - ?
    V: I'm sorry, but Mr. Deitrich's dead. I thought they'd arrest him, but when they found a Koran in his house, they had him executed.
    Evey Hammond: [whispers] Oh God...
    V: Fortunately, I got to you before they did.
    Evey Hammond: You got to me? You did this to me? You cut my hair? You tortured me? You tortured me! Why?
    V: You said you wanted to live without fear. I wish there'd been an easier way, but there wasn't.
    [Evey whispers, "Oh my God...?]
    V: I know you may never forgive me... but nor will you understand how hard it was for me to do what I did. Every day I saw in myself everything you see in me now. Every day I wanted to end it, but each time you refused to give in, I knew I couldn't.
    Evey Hammond: You're *sick*! You're *evil*!
    V: *You* could've ended it, Evey, you could've given in. But you didn't. Why?
    Evey Hammond: Leave me alone! I *hate* you!
    V: That's it! See, at first I thought it was hate, too. Hate was all I knew, it built my world, it imprisoned me, taught me how to eat, how to drink, how to breathe. I thought I'd die with all my hate in my veins. But then something happened. It happened to me... just as it happened to you.
    Evey Hammond: Shut up! I *don't* want to hear your lies!
    V: Your own father said that artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie. But because you believed it, you found something true about yourself.
    Evey Hammond: No.
    V: What was true in that cell is just as true now. What you felt in there has nothing to do with me.
    Evey Hammond: I can't feel *anything* anymore!
    V: Don't run from it, Evey. You've been running all your life.
    Evey Hammond: [gasps] I can't... can't breathe. Asthma... asthma! When I was little...
    [V reaches out his hand, Evey grabs it, they fall to the ground together]
    V: Listen to me, Evey. This may be the most important moment of your life. Commit to it.
    [Evey continues sobbing]
    V: They took your parents from you. They took your brother from you.
    [Evey groans]
    V: They put you in a cell and took everything they could take except your life. And you believed that was all there was, didn't you? The only thing you had left was your life, but it wasn't, was it?
    [Evey sobs, "Oh please...?]
    V: You found something else. In that cell you found something that mattered more to you than life. It was when they threatened to kill you unless you gave them what they wanted... you told them you'd rather die. You faced your death, Evey. You were calm. You were still.
    [Evey continues gasping]
    V: Try to feel now what you felt then.
    Evey Hammond: [breathes heavily] Oh God... I felt...
    V: Yes?
    Evey Hammond: I'm dizzy. I need air. Please, I need to be outside.

    V: [Evey pulls out her mace] I can assure you I mean you no harm.
    Evey Hammond: Who are you?
    V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
    Evey Hammond: Well I can see that.
    V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
    Evey Hammond: Oh. Right.
    V: But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.
    V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
    [carves V into poster on wall]
    V: The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
    V: Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
    Evey Hammond: Are you like a crazy person?
    V: I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking with?
    Evey Hammond: I'm Evey.
    V: Evey? E-V. Of course you are.
    Evey Hammond: What does that mean?
    V: It means that I, like God, do not play with dice and I don't believe in coincidences.

    V: The only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain.

    V: There are no coincidences, Delia... only the illusion of coincidence

    V for Vendetta is another movie that I can watch over and over again.

    LOL forgot that one.

    "Bitch, the shit you don't know about me you could just about squeeze into the grand canyon" - From same movie, and I'm gay for knowing that.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    Ah, this quote from the Matrix gets me all excited. I laugh everytime I see it because I love the premise the Oracle is presenting.

    Oracle: I'd ask you to sit down, but, you're not going to anyway. And don't worry about the vase.
    Neo: What vase?
    [Neo turns to look for a vase, and as he does, he knocks over a vase of flowers, which shatters on the floor]
    Oracle: That vase.
    Neo: I'm sorry...
    Oracle: I said don't worry about it. I'll get one of my kids to fix it.
    Neo: How did you know?
    Oracle: Ohh, what's really going to bake your noodle later on is, would you still have broken it if I hadn't said anything?

    And then this one by Gandalf.

    Gandalf: A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.

    From V for Vendetta:

    V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.

    Hmm most of the things Zorg says in the Fifth Element are amusing to me. It's the voice, though, not the lines. Same case with Morgan Freeman (he will always be god in every movie I see, dammit).

    A couple from I <3 Huckabees (which was a surprisingly interesting movie):

    Albert Markovski: [about the body bag exercise] I can't go back in there. It's all hating faces that I have to chop up with a machete!

    and...because this one sounds like the inside of my head sometimes

    Albert Markovski: Mother-fucking, cocksucker, mother-fucking, shit-fucker, what am I doing?
    [Albert walks out from behind tree, towards camera. As he gets closer to the camera the scene comes into focus]
    Albert Markovski: What am I doing? I don't know what I'm doing. I'm doing the best that I can. I know that's all I can ask of myself. Is that good enough? Is my work doing any good? Is anybody paying attention? Is it hopeless to try and change things? The African guy is a sign, right? Because if he isn't than nothing in this world makes any sense to me; I'm fucked. Maybe I should quit. Don't quit. Maybe I should just fucking quit. Don't fucking quit. Just, I don't know what the fuck I'm supposed to do anymore. Fucker. Fuck. Shit.
    [Albert stops walking and begins speech about saving a piece of the marsh]

    And that has made all the difference."

    From the Hit Series Dexter

    There are no secrets in life, just hidden truths that lie beneath the surface.

    I can kill a man, dismember his body, and be home in time for Letterman. But knowing what to say when my girlfriend's feeling insecure...I'm totally lost

    Killing must serve a purpose. Otherwise, it's just plain murder.

    Human bonds always lead to messy complications.
