Here's some great lines from Dirty Harry:

MAYOR: All right, let's have it.

HARRY: Have what?

MAYOR: Your report.  What have you been doing?

HARRY Well for the past three quarters of an hour I've been sitting on my ass in your outer office waiting on you.

MAYOR: I don't want any more trouble like you had last year in the Fillmore district.  Understand?   That's my policy.

HARRY: Yeah, well when an adult male is chasing a female with intent to commit rape, I shoot the bastard.  That's my policy.

MAYOR: Intent?  How did you establish that?

HARRY: When a naked man is chasing a woman through an alley with a butcher knife and a hard on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross.  (Leaves)

MAYOR: I think he's got a point.

HARRY:  Ah-ah, I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I've kind of lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum—the most powerful hand gun in the world—and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

HARRY:  Now you know why they call me Dirty Harry.  Every dirty job that comes along.

HARRY:  Welcome to Homicide.

HARRY: You owe it to yourself to live a little, Harry.

D.A. ROTHKO: Where the hell does it say you've got a right to kick down doors, torture suspects, deny medical attention and legal counsel?  Where have you been?  Does Escobedo ring a bell?  Miranda?  I mean, you must have heard of the 4th Amendment?  What I'm saying is that man had rights.

HARRY: Well I'm all broken up about that man's rights.

CHIEF: I want an answer.  Have you been following that man?

HARRY: Yeah, I've been following him on my own time.  And anybody can tell I didn't do that to him.


HARRY: ‘Cause he looks too damn good, that's how.

HARRY:  You can just get yourself another delivery boy.

Hey, I like this thread.  Here are a few lines from my fave In The Line of Fire:

FRANK HORRIGAN:   The secretaries get prettier and prettier around here.

LILLY:   Hmm, and the field agents get older and older.

LILLY:   What are you looking at?

FRANK:   I was just wondering where you hide your fire arm...  Don't tell me, let me guess.

FRANK:  I bet that brown pigeon down there flies off before the white one.

LILLY:  How do you know?

FRANK:  I know things about pigeons, Lilly.

(Incidentally, Clint thought up this line himself.)

LEARY:  Do you really have the guts to take a bullet Frank?

FRANK:   Well I'll be thinking about that when I'm pissing on your grave.

LEARY:  I have a rendevous with death, and so does the President, and so do you Frank, if you get too close to me.

FRANK:   You have a rendevous with my ass, mother fu<ker!

Here's some quotes from The Outlaw Josey Wales to add to the ones that Christopher posted earlier in this thread:

I reckon so.

CARPETBAGGER: Your young friend could use some help.  This is it.  One dollar a bottle.  It works wonders on wounds.

JOSEY: Works wonders on just about everything, huh?

CARPETBAGGER: It can do most anything.

JOSEY: (Spits wad of chewing tobacco onto the carpetbagger's jacket) How is it with stains?

I don't want nobody belonging to me.

Chief, I was just wondering, I suppose that mangy red-boned hound's got nowhere else to go either.  (Spits tobacco on the dog) He might as well ride along with us.  Hell, everybody else is.

JOSEY: When I get to liking someone, they ain't around long.

LONE WATIE: I notice when you get to disliking someone they ain't around for long neither.

LONE WATIE: Why don't you stay with us?  Be our partner?   They won't miss you, maybe they'll forget you.

JOSEY: You know there ain't no forgetting.

Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you got to get mean.  I mean plumb, maddog mean!  Cause if you lose your head and you give up, then you neither live nor win.  That's just the way it is.

JOSEY: You be Ten Bears?

TEN BEARS: I am Ten Bears.

JOSEY: (Spits tobacco) I'm Josey Wales.

TEN BEARS: I have heard.  You're the Gray Rider.  You would not make peace with the Blue Coats.  You may go in peace.

JOSEY: I reckon not.  Got nowhere to go.

TEN BEARS: Then you will die.

JOSEY: I came here to die with you.  Or live with you.  Dying ain't so hard for men like you and me, it's living that's hard; when all you ever cared about has been butchered or raped.  Governments don't live together, people live together.  With governments you don't always get a fair word or a fair fight.  Well I've come here to give you either one, or get either one from you.  I came here like this so you'll know my word of death is true.  And that my word of life is then true.  The bear lives here, the wolf, the antelope, the Comanche.  And so will we.  Now, we'll only hunt what we need to live on, same as the Comanche does.  And every spring when the grass turns green and the Comanche moves north, he can rest here in peace, butcher some of our cattle and jerk beef for the journey.  The sign of the Comanche, that will be on our lodge.  That's my word of life.

TEN BEARS: And your word of death?

JOSEY: It's here in my pistols, there in your rifles.  I'm here for either one.

TEN BEARS: These things you say we will have, we already have.

JOSEY: That's true.  I ain't promising you nothing extra.  I'm just giving you life and you're giving me life.  And I'm saying that men can live together without butchering one another.  

TEN BEARS: It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double-tongues.  There is iron in your word of death for all Comanche to see.  And so there is iron in your words of life.  No signed paper can hold the iron, it must come from men.  The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death.  It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death.  It shall be life.  (He takes his knife and cuts his hand.  Josey does the same and they grasp each other's hand.)    So shall it be.

JOSEY: I reckon so.

Sometimes trouble just follows a man.

I guess we all died a little in that damn war.

Here's a couple from Space Cowboys.  

BOB GERSON:  I can't fill up a space shuttle with geriatrics and you ought to be professional enough to know that.  Hell, half those boys are probably dead anyway.

FRANK:  Clock's ticking, Bob.  And I'm only getting older.

TINY:  I'll put you in the hospital old man.

FRANK:  Well I've got Medicare.  Go ahead and shoot your best shot.

And I watched Firefox, but didn't come up with anything I thought was good enough for this thread.  Not the best movie for Eastwood quotes.  Does anyone have a favorite from there?

Here's some from The Gauntlet:

On a scale of ten, I'd have to give her a two.  And that's only because I've never seen a one before.

SHOCKLEY:  The man says I need a warrant, huh?  Well, the man don't know jack sh!t.  Now anybody here know more about the law than me?  Any lawyers here?  Any lawyers want to tell me why I don't need a warrant?

MAN: Hey man, why don't you get off our case.

SHOCKLEY: You with the fu<k!ng hair!  You look smart.  Why don't you tell me why I'm entitled to come in here anytime I please....... Reasonable what?

MAN: Reasonable suspicion?

SHOCKLEY: Exactly!  Reasonable suspicion.  I can go anywhere I please if I have reasonable suspicion.  Now if I have suspicion a felony's been committed, I can just walk right in here anytime I feel like it ‘cause I got this badge, I got this gun, and I got the love of Jesus right here in my pretty, green eyes.

Tell him I know why he picked me for the job.  Tell him he was wrong.  Tell him I'm coming for him and I'm gonna nail his ass to the wall.

Nag, nag, nag!

This is gonna be a long post, and it's gonna contain several long passages of dialogue, rather than just one-liners, but... the dialogue I'm about to quote is too great to not be posted in this thread.  So hang on to your seats and enjoy the following quotes from White Hunter, Black Heart:

There's nothing tougher than trying to remember why you chased a dame once you've had her.

Now you see why I want to go to Africa, kid.  I've got nothing else to lose.  Even if a lion or a buffalo gets me, my last minute will be a happy one.  I'll just think of my creditors back in The States when they find out I've been eaten alive, and it'll all seem worthwhile.

If there's half as much love in this old gal as there is talk, I may be dead in the morning.

VERRILL: You're beating the audience over the head, John.  People don't go to see pictures to be lectured to.

WILSON: Tell me, Pete... do you own a percentage of this film?


WILSON: Then why are you so concerned about the damn audience?

VERRILL: Because we're in show business, John.

WILSON: Not me.  And not you, either, when we work together.  You see, we're gods, Pete.  Lousy little gods who control the lives of the people we create.  We sit up in some heavenly place and decide whether they live or die on the merits of what happens to them in reel one, or two or three, etcetera.  And then we decide if they have the right to live, and that's how we arrive at our ending.

VERRILL: Well, that's what you say, John.  But I say I'm a swell god.  I say they should live... because of everything they've gone through together.  They should live because this world doesn't necessarily have to be a hopeless and rotten place, John.  We're not all destined and doomed to die of radium poisoning.  Now I might be completely wrong... but that's what makes me... a swell god.

WILSON: That makes you a flea on an elephant's ass.

VERRILL: Oh, balls to your pessimism!

WILSON: You know something, Pete?   You're never gonna be a good screenwriter, and you know why?

VERRILL: No, John.  Why don't you tell me why?

WILSON: ‘Cause you let 85 million popcorn eaters pull you this way and that way.  To write a movie, you must forget that anyone's ever gonna see it.

Later in that same scene:

WILSON:  I'll die broke in a downtown Los Angeles flophouse and I won't be bitter.  I'll have contributed maybe five, ten, damn good pictures.  They'll name a special Academy Award after me.  And you know something?  All the wrong guys will get it and I'll be in hell laughing my ass off.

MARGARET: I'm not keen on London.  I had to live there during the war and I got awfully fed up with it.

WILSON: Well I rather enjoyed it during the war.  The people behaved so magnificently.

MARGARET: Well they didn't all behave well.  You probably never left the West End.

WILSON: Not true, not true.  I did a film about the London Blitz.  I was all over town.

MARGARET: You can't have spent much time in Soho, where I lived.

WILSON: Why do you say that, dear?

MARGARET: I thought the people there were just horrid.  There were an awful lot of Jews in that neighborhood.

VERRILL: Mrs. MacGregor...

MARGARET: Margaret.

VERRILL: Margaret.  I must warn you, I'm a Jew.

MARGARET: You're not!




MARGARET: You're pulling my leg!

VERRILL: No, I'm not pulling your leg, Margaret.  I'm a Jew.

MARGARET: Oh, I don't believe you.  (Back to Wilson) I know I shouldn't say this, but that was the one thing about which I felt Hitler was absolutely right.

WILSON: Now, Margaret... the man has just gotten through warning you.

MARGARET: Because the Jews in London were awful.  They ran the black market and they didn't go into the army.  And when they did, they got themselves cushy jobs.  Of course, there were upper-class Jews, but I'm not talking about them.  I'm talking about the kikes in Soho, the foreigners.

VERRILL: Margaret.  Margaret... my grandparents were kikes.  My father and my mother were kikes... and I'm a kike.

WILSON: That's right, dear.

MARGARET: Well, you don't mean to tell me that you're Jewish too?

WILSON: No, absolutely not, ‘cause that would be a lie, and I wouldn't want to lie to you ever.  But, I would like to tell you a little story, though.

MARGARET: Oh I love stories!

WILSON: Well, you mustn't interrupt now, because you're way too beautiful to interrupt people.  When I was in London in the early 40's, I was dining one evening at The Savoy with a rather select group of people.  And sitting next to me was a very beautiful lady, much like yoruself.

MARGARET: Now you're pulling my leg.

WILSON: Now, just listen dear.  While we were dining and the bombs were falling and we were all talking about Hitler and comparing him with Napoleon, and we were all being really brilliant; and then, suddenly, this beautiful lady, she spoke up and said that that was the thing that she didn't mind about Hitler, was the way he was treating the Jews.  Well, we all started arguing with her, of course, though mind you, no one at the table was Jewish.  But, she persisted.  Are you listening, honey?

MARGARET: Mustn't interrupt daddy.

WILSON: That's right.  You're way too beautiful for that.  Anyway, she went on to say that that's how she felt about it.  That if she had her way, she would kill them all... burn them in ovens like Hitler.  We all sat there in silence.  And then, finally, I leaned over to her and I said, "Madam, I have dined with some of the ugliest god damn b*[email protected] in my time.  And I have dined with some of the god damnest ugly b*[email protected] in this world.  But, you, my dear, are the ugliest b*[email protected] of them all."  Well, anyway, she got up to leave and she tripped over her chair and fell on the floor, and we all just sat there.  No one raised a hand to help her.  And finally when she picked herself up, I said to her one more time... "You, my dear, are the ugliest god damn b*[email protected] I have ever dined with."  And do you know what happened?  The very next day she reported me to the American Embassy and they brought me in for reprimand, and then when they investigated it, they found out that she was a German agent and they locked her up.  Isn't that amazing?

MARGARET: Why did you tell me that story?

WILSON: Oh, I don't know.  It wasn't because I thought you were a German agent, honey.  But, I was tempted tonight to say the very same thing to you, I didn't want you to think I'd never said it before.  You ma'am are the..... well, you know the rest.  (Pause) Care for some champagne, honey?

MARGARET: No, thank you.


MARGARET: Well, it's getting late.  I think I'd better go back to my room.

WILSON: Well, Pete and I will accompany you.

MARGARET: There's no need.  (She runs off)

WILSON:  (Calling after her)  No bother at all.  Goodnight, Margaret.

VERRILL: Sorry, John.  I know you wanted to get laid.

WILSON: Well, that's all right, kid.  You can't help it if you're a kike.

Pete, I'm gonna take myself a nap.  Please don't wake me unless you're sure we're gonna crash cause ... I wouldn't want to miss something like that.

You've got to fight when you think it's the right thing to do.  Otherwise you feel like your gut's full of pus.  Even if you get the hell beat out of you.  If you fight, you feel okay about it.
VERRILL: You're either crazy, or the most egocentric, irresponsible son-of-a-b*[email protected] that I have ever met.  You're about to blow this whole picture out of your nose, John.  And for what?  To commit a crime.  To kill one of the rarest, most noble creatures that roams the face ot this crummy earth.  And in order to commit this crime, you're willing to forget about all of us and let this whole god damn thing go down the drain.

WILSON: You're wrong, kid.  It's not a crime to kill an elephant.  It's bigger than all that.  It's a sin to kill an elephant.  Do you understand?  It's a sin.  The only sin that you can buy a license and go out to commit.  That's why I want to do it before I do anything else in this world.  Do you understand me?  Of course you don't. How could you?  I don't understand it myself.

Oh God, this makes it all so worthwhile.

(In a harsh, broken whisper) Action.

Here's a few from the Which Way films.  (Philo, if I'm leaving out any of your favorites, maybe you could add them to the thread).

From Every Which Way But Loose:

Slightly advanced.

How many times have I told you, I don't want him drinking beer except on Saturday night.

Well, guess you just keep howling until sometime they howl back.

TANK MURDOCK:  Looks like you've had a go at it already.  You sure that face won't hurt too much to fight?

PHILO:  I ain't gonna be hitting you with my face.

From Any Which Way You Can:

Right turn, Clyde.

Handouts are what you get from the government.  A hand up is what you get from friends.

LYNN:  (Watching incredulously as the Black Widows harden under the tar and crash to the ground)  What are you going to do with them?

PHILO:  Well, we can't leave them here, dogs would come along and piss on them.  Ain't fair to the dogs.

Clyde, sometimes I think you're not too tightly wrapped.

Here's a bunch from Bronco Billy:

BRONCO BILLY:  I think every kid in America oughta go to school, at least up to the eighth grade.

KID:  We don't go to school today, Bronco Billy.  It's Saturday.

BRONCO BILLY:  Yeah, well I been ridin' late last night.  A man's brain gets kinda fuzzy when he's been on the range.

BRONCO BILLY:  You should never kill a man unless it's absolutely necessary.

ANTOINETTE:  Are you for real?

BRONCO BILLY:  I'm ... who I want to be.

BRONCO BILLY:  Girl, you sure are mixed up.

ANTOINETTE:  You're living in a dream world!  There are no more cowboys and Indians, that's in the past!

BRONCO BILLY:  Ms. Lily, I was raised in a one room tenement in New Jersey.  As a kid, I never even saw a cowboy, much less the wide open spaces.... except when I could scrounge up a quarter for a picture show.  I was a shoe salesman until I was 31 years old.  Deep down in my heart I always wanted to be a cowboy.  Then one day I laid down my shoehorn and swore I'd never live in the city again.  You only live once.  You got to give it your best shot.

ANTOINETTE:  Don't you find anything about your life bizarre?

BRONCO BILLY:  The only thing strange I find is that you and I haven't made love yet.

BRONCO BILLY:  Nobody says that about a cowboy.

Straight up or over the saddle.  Either one.

Ramón, lead off huh?  (Ramón rides ahead and is shot off his horse, dead.)  Figured we might be too close.

And here's a quote that Goodie posted on the board a few years back from one of Joe Kidd's deleted scenes.  KC saved that old thread... thanks for sending it to me.  :)

I just watched The Good, The Bad and The Ugly again.  What a film!  Man, the more I watch it, the more I love it.  It might be inching its way to the very top of my favorites list.    :)  

Anyway, since this thread is supposed to concentrate on EASTWOOD one-liners, I'll limit these entries to Blondie's best lines...

TUCO:  There are two kinds of people in the world, my friend.  Those with a rope around their neck and the people who have the job of doing the cutting.  Listen, the neck at the end of the rope is mine!  I run the risks.  So the next time, I want more than half.

BLONDIE:  You may run the risks, my friend, but I do the cutting.  If we cut down my percentage... cigar?  It might interfere with my aim.

BLONDIE:  The way I figure... there's really not too much future with a sawed-off runt like you.

BLONDIE:  Such ingratitutde after all the times I've saved your life.

TUCO: (Seeing troops approaching)  They're gray like us.  Let's say "hello" to them and then get going.  (Yelling to the troops)  Hurrah!  Hurrah for the Confederacy!  Hurrah!  Down with General Grant!  Hurrah for General... (to Blondie) What's his name?


TUCO:  (Yelling to the troops again)  Lee!  God is with us because he hates the Yanks too!  Hurrah!

BLONDIE:  (Watching closely as the troops approach)  God is not on our side 'cause he hates idiots also.

(The troops arrive before them, and beat the gray dust off their Union uniforms)

BLONDIE:  I've never seen so many men wasted so badly.

TUCO:  (Reading note left behind by Angel Eyes)  "See you soon, id - id-"

BLONDIE:  (Takes the note)  "Idiots".  (Hands the note back to Tuco)  It's for you.

BLONDIE:  You see, in this world, there's two kinds of people, my friend.  Those with loaded guns, and those who dig.  You dig.

Here's a bunch of good ones from A Fistul of Dollars.  Just about every word of dialogue is a classic in this one.


JOE:  (To Piripero)  Get three coffins ready.

MAN:  Adios Amigo.

MAN 2:  We don't like to see bad boys like you in town.

MAN 3:  Go get your mule.  You let him get away from you?

JOE:  You see, that's what I want to talk to you about.  He's feeling real bad.

MAN 3:  Huh?

JOE:  My mule.  You see, he got all riled up when you men fired those shots at his feet.

MAN 2:  Hey, are you making some kind of joke?

JOE:  No.   See, I understand you men were just playin' around.  But the mule, he just doesn't get it.  Of course, if you were to all apologize.

(The men laugh.  Joe moves the poncho aside, exposing his pistol.)

JOE:  I don't think it's nice, you laughin'.   See, my mule don't like people laughing.  He gets the crazy idea you're laughing at him.  Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it......

(Pause as music builds, men draw their guns.  Joe draws his and fires five shots.)

JOHN BAXTER:  I saw the whole thing.  You killed all four of them.  You'll pay all right.  You'll be strung up.

JOE:  (Draws gun)  Who are you?

JOHN BAXTER:  I'm John Baxter, sheriff.

JOE:  Yeah, well, if you're the sheriff, you'd better get those men underground.  (Lowers poncho and walks off, passing Piripero.)  My mistake.  Four coffins.

JOE: You'll have to mark this up.

ESTEBAN: What are you doing?

JOE: Moving

ESTEBAN: But did you know all our men live here with us?

JOE: That's all very cozy but I don't find you men all that appealin'.

RAMÓN: Life can be so precious.  It's foolish to risk losing it every minute.  No, there's plenty of space for everybody in this town.  Even Baxters, hmmm?  For this reason, I've decided to hang my gun up on the wall.

DON MIGUEL: I think that Ramón has the right idea.  I, too, am getting tired of these killings.  They must stop.

JOE: This is all very, very touching.

RAMÓN: You mean you don't admire peace?

JOE: It's not real easy to like something you know nothing about.

RAMÓN: Stay in San Miguel and you may just profit from the experience.

JOE: No thanks.  I'll be movin' on.

CONSEULA BAXTER: Very soon, you are going to be rich.  (Hands Joe a fistful of dollars)

JOE: Uh huh.  (Takes the money) Yeah, and that's not gonna break my heart.

A great exchange from True Crime :

Everett: Frankly I don't give a rat's ass about Jesus Christ, and I don't care about justice in this world or the next. I don't even care what's right or wrong. Never have. But do you know what this is?

Beachum: What is this, some kind of joke?

Everett: No, it's no joke. That's my nose. To tell you the pitiful truth that's all I have in life. When my nose tells me something stinks I gotta have faith in it, just like you have your faith in Jesus. When my nose is working well I know there's truth out there somewhere but if it isn't working well then they might as well drive me off a cliff cause I'm nothing. Well, lately I'm not 100 percent sure my nose has really been working that great. So I've gotta ask you, did you kill that woman or not?

And this one:

Everett: Give me something goddamn it!

Another one:

Everett: Warden? You're not really sure are ya?


D.A. Nussbaum:  Call my office in the morning, I'll try to help you out.

Everett: If you wait till the morning, you better sleep goddamn well tonight 'cause after today I'm gonna haunt the sh!t out of you, understand? I'm gonna haunt your ass all over this goddamn town.

There's loads more but those are just a few good ones from this film!
