Favorite Movie Lines That Will Never Make The Top 100 List.

The American Film Institute has come out with a mainstream list
of the 100 best movie lines of all time. (Click here to view list.)

Here are some of my favorite lines, at least how I remember them,
from movies that will never make a top critics or fans list
of any kind but that are worth seeing nonetheless.

From Barfly, starring Mickey Rourke, in the role he was
born to play, writer, drunk and asshole Charles Bukowski.

In a bar crowded with bums,

"To all my friends!"

And in the background cavorting while his girlfriend, played
by Faye Dunaway, is on the phone with her sugar daddy,

"I'm a beer-drinking wrestler who likes to fart."

From Strange Brew, by one of the MacKenzie brothers
while offering a donut to a plump secretary as a bribe,

"It's a cruller."

From The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai across the 8th Dimension, by Dr. Emilo Lizardo,

"Sealed with a curse as sharp as a knife, doomed is-a your soul and damned is-a your life."

and

"Massacre them without a quarter."

by the alien John Bigboote

"Bigboo-TAY."

and

"It's not my goddam plant, understand, monkeyboy?"

From the indie sci-fi, western musical The American Astronaut, by the serial killer before he kills his victim,

"I said I want you to sing 'Happy Birthday.'"

and over the ship to ship space radio while chasing the American astronaut across the Solar System,

"Aren't you going to sing 'Happy Birthday' to me?"

By the boss of the mine on Jupiter to his miners, who have never seen a woman,

"Gentlemen. I give to you, the boy who actually saw a woman's breast."

And finally, two lines from the movie Sodom and Gomorrah

"Greetings Sodomites."

and

"Watch out for the Sodomite patrols."
