Steelers Fan and 7 & & IS
You both come up with the best film dialogs.

I have a DVD-R of The Bad Seed. I was laughing at Monica's high hat speech to Leroy at the beginning. The irony of her diagnosing him with what Rhoda is. And as Rhoda heads off to her school picnic to beat her classmate Claude to death with her iron soled shoes so she can posses what she feels is justly hers...the gold penmanship medal Miss Fern gave out. Leroy was the first one to see Rhoda for what she was. The irony of Leroy's dialog after everyone is gone. "She's almost as smart as I am." Leroy toys with her over the death of Claude to the point she murders him and makes it look like it was his fault.

Monica: You sound like Fred Astaire tap tapping across the room. What have you got on your shoes?
Rhoda: I run over my heels...and Mother had these iron pieces put on them so they last longer.
Christine: I'm afraid I can't take any credit. It was Rhoda's idea entirely.
Rhoda: I think they are very nice. They save money.
Monica: You penurious little sweetheart. You think of everything, take everything so much to heart. That's one reason why I thought you should have some presents today. You wanted to win that penmanship medal very much, didn't you?
Rhoda: It's the only gold medal Miss Fern gives, and it was really mine! Everybody knew I wrote the best hand, and I should have it. I just don't see how Claude Daigle got the medal!
Christine: Rhoda. These things happen to us all the time...and when they do, we simply accept them. Now, I've told you, darling, try to forget it. (Tries to hug Rhoda) I'm sorry. I know you don't like people pawing over you.
Rhoda: It was mine! The medal was mine! It was mine! (Runs down the front steps. Leroy sprays her shoes with garden hose)
Rhoda: Hey!
Monica: Have you completely lost your senses? Look at Rhoda's shoes!
Leroy: I'm sorry, Mrs. Breedlove...but she had to come running out here...(sprays Rhoda's shoes again, Rhoda jumps and screams)...just as I was...
Monica: Leroy!
Leroy: Sorry, ma'am.
Monica: Leroy, I own this apartment house. I employ you...I've given you the benefit of every doubt because you have a family. I've thought of you as emotionally immature, torn by irrational rages, a bit on the psychopathic side. But after this demonstration, I think my diagnosis was entirely too mild. You're definitely a schizophrenic with paranoid overtones. I've had quite enough of your discourtesy and surliness, and so have the tenants in my building. My brother has wanted to discharge you. I've taken your side despite misgivings...
Christine: Monica
Monica:...I shall protect you no longer...
Christine: Monica. He didn't mean it. It was an accident. Sure it was.
Rhoda: He meant to do it. I know Leroy.
Monica: It was no accident, Christine. It was deliberate, the spiteful act of a neurotic child.
Rhoda: He meant to do it. You watched out of the corner of your eyes.
Christine: Rhoda, I want you-
Rhoda: (yelling) You made up your mind in one second!
Leroy: I never. I'm just clumsy! (takes a swipe at Rhoda's shoes with a dirty rag)
Monica: My patience is at an end, and you might as well know it. Get about your work!

Leroy: (trimming a shrub while talking to himself) That know--it--all Monica Breedlove. Don't think nobody knows anything but her. Well, she ain't got long to go anyway. Old heifer's about ready for the canners. But that young, trough-fed Mrs. Penmark...she might get kind of lonesome with that soldier boy of hers gone. Yes, sir, she might. Yeah, that Rhoda's a real smart one. That's a smart little gal. She's almost as smart as I am. She sees through me, and I see through her. Swallow me a frog, but she's smart.

Tony Camonte (Paul Muni) waxes enthusiastic about his Tommy gun in "Scarface":

There's only one thing that gets
orders and gives orders, and this is it.

That's how I got the South Side, and
that's how I'm gonna get the North Side.

Some little typewriter, huh? I'm gonna
write my name all over this town with it.
In big letters!

Hey, stop him, somebody!

Get outta my way, Johnny!

I'm gonna spit!

Some lines from 'Topsy Turvy'.

"Madam, I had rather spend an afternoon in a Turkish bath with my mother than visit the dratted dentist."

"The more I see of men, the more I admire dogs." (prob my favorite line from the film)

Gilbert: No, sir. I can assure you, Papa, that the very last person with whom I wish to have any communication at all is your estranged wife, the vicious woman who bore me into this ridiculous world.
Gilbert's Father: How dare you, sir? Have you no respect?
Gilbert: Don't misunderstand me, Father. Nobody respects her more than I do, and I can't stand the woman.

Steelers fan says:
In Mel Brooks' "The Producers", Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) and Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) scheme together to create a surefire Broadway flop.

BLOOM (the back of his head
practically touching
the floor)
Mr. Bialystock, not more than five
minutes ago, against my better
judgment, I doctored your books.
That, sir, is the ultimate extent
of my criminal life.

BIALYSTOCK RAISES HIS FISTS TO THE HEAVENS IN DESPAIR.
BLOOM, EXPERIENCING A DEFINITE LACK OF SUPPORT, GOES CRASHING
TO THE FLOOR.

BIALYSTOCK
OOOOOHH! OOOOOHH! OOOOOHH!
OOOOOHH! I WANT THAT MONEY!

CAMERA ON BLOOM AS HE LIES STRICKEN ON THE FLOOR.



BLOOM
(to himself)
Oh, I fell on my keys.
(he shifts slightly
to make himself more comfortable)
I've got to get out of here.

BIALYSTOCK
(angrily hovering
over Bloom)
You miserable, cowardly, wretched
little caterpillar. Don't you ever
want to become a butterfly? Don't
you want to spread your wings and
flap your way to glory?

BIALYSTOCK FLAPS HIS ARMS LIKE A HUGE PREDATORY BIRD.

BLOOM
(his eyes widened in terror)
You're going to jump on me.

BIALYSTOCK STARES AT HIM INCREDULOUSLY.

BLOOM
You're going to jump on me. I know
you're going to jump on me -- like
Nero jumped on Poppea.

BIALYSTOCK
(nonplussed)
What???

BLOOM
(by now he is shrieking)
Poppea. She was his wife. And she
was unfaithful to him. So he got
mad and he jumped on her. Up and
down, up and down, until he squashed
her like a bug. Please don't jump
on me.

BIALYSTOCK
(shouting and jumping
up and down next to Bloom)
I'm not going to jump on you!

BLOOM
(rolling away in terror)
Aaaaaaaaaa!


BIALYSTOCK
(hoisting Bloom to
his feet)
Will you get a hold on yourself.

BLOOM
(up on his feet and
running for cover)
Don't touch me! Don't touch me!

HE RUNS TO A CORNER OF THE ROOM. TRAPPED! HE TURNS.

BIALYSTOCK
What are you afraid of? I'm not
going to hurt you! What's the
matter with you?

BLOOM
I'm hysterical. I'm having
hysterics. I'm hysterical. I
can't stop. When I get like this,
I can't stop. I'm hysterical.

BIALYSTOCK RUSHES TO THE DESK. PICKS UP A CARAFE OF WATER
AND SLOSHES ITS CONTENTS INTO BLOOM'S FACE.

BLOOM
I'm wet! I'm wet! I'm hysterical
and I'm wet!

BIALYSTOCK IN A DESPERATE MOVE TO STOP BLOOM'S HYSTERICS,
SLAPS HIM ACROSS THE FACE.

BLOOM
(holding his face)
I'm in pain! And I'm wet! And I'm
still hysterical!

BIALYSTOCK RAISES HIS HAND AGAIN.

BLOOM
No! No! Don't hit. It doesn't
help. It only increases my sense
of danger.

BIALYSTOCK
What can I do? What can I do?
You're getting me hysterical.

BLOOM
Go away from me. You frighten me.
(he indicates the sofa)
Sit over there.
