In memoriam, Sir Sean. RIP.

Let's remember him by remembering our favorite lines from his movies.

1. "She talks in her sleep."
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Sean improvised that line. It stayed in. Maybe that's it's why it's a favorite.

He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue.

"Ay, i'tis that." (MWWBK)

"We met on the level, and are parting on the square." (MWWBK)

"It's been a bad year. Next year will probably be worse." (TWATL)

I suspect this list will be a mile long before closed.

From A Bridge Too Far:

"Hancock. I've got lunatics laughing at me from the woods. My original plan has been scuppered now that the jeeps haven't arrived. My communications are completely broken down. Do you really believe any of that can be helped by a cup of tea?"

Hancock replies: "Couldn't hurt, Sir"

"That's not a wife, that's a going concern!"

"Most things in here don't react too well to bullets."

"Vodka martini, very dry. Shaken, not stirred."

Of course, in most cases lines in a movie are the result of the writer, not the actor. So it's not so much the words he's responsible for as the memorable delivery.

"She talks in her sleep"

Connery ad libbed the line and it made the scene

1. Bond, James Bond.

2. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue.

From "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". Indy says "Dad, they're trying to kill us." Connery replies, "Well, it's a new experience for me." Not so much the line but like Parzival said, "It was the delivery".

"Can you give me your solemn oath – as a foreigner?"
From Murder on the Orient Express

Tacitus02 Nov 2020 12:08 a.m. PST

Dick, the next line's even better:
Plenty O'Toole: "Plenty O'Toole."
Bond: "Named after your father perhaps?"

Or: Bond: "Weren't you a blond when I came in?"
Tiffany Case: "Could be."
Bond: "I tend to notice little things like that, whether a girl is a blond or a brunette."
Tiffany Case: "And which do you prefer?"
Bond: "Oh, providing the collars and cuffs match…"

"To Theodore Roosevelt – you are like the Wind and I like the Lion. You form the Tempest. The sand stings my eyes and the Ground is parched. I roar in defiance but you do not hear. But between us there is a difference. I, like the lion, must remain in my place. While you like the wind will never know yours. – Mulay Hamid El Raisuli, Lord of the Riff, Sultan to the Berbers, Last of the Barbary Pirates".

"Patriotism is a virtue of the vicious," according to Oscar Wilde. (The Rock)

What's advertising but a legalized con game? And what the hell's marriage? Extortion, prostitution, soliciting with a government stamp on it. And what the hell's your stock market? A fixed horse race… (The Anderson Tapes)

"He who fights too long against dragons, becomes a dragon himself."… Nietzsche. (Zardoz)

the scriptures are very clear. Proverbs warns us, "Woman takes possession of a man's precious soul", while Ecclesiastes tells us, "More bitter than death is woman". (The Name of the Rose)
