Best Line Of The Movie.


(Anthony Perkins) I still don't like your face.

reply

I disagree. Best line of the movie came after ffolkes (Moore) finished giving Sanna aka "Boy" (actress Lea Brodie) a backrub because ffolkes thought "he" was getting early hypothermia.

ffolkes sees her breasts through the wet shirt and remarks:

My God you are a girl. Still a lot of people owe you an awful lot. [Reflective pause] And so do I.

I stand corrected.

reply

James Mason (after ffolkes decodes the cryptic message giving the order to blow up Ruth): Are you one of those people who does The Times crossword puzzle in 10 minutes?

ffolkes (with great indignation): I have NEVER taken 10 minutes!

(Moore) Have I forgotten anything? (Sees Whisky bottle)... Yes, I bloody well have!

reply

"Both my parents died tragically in childbirth."

Great line. And Moore's reading of it - completely serious - is just brilliant.

reply

"Both my parents died tragically in childbirth."

LOL -- I loved that line...

Just started reading the book... on the second page: "His father had been as eccentric as he was. The two had never met, Augustus ffolkes having succumbed to a heart attack while witnessing the premature arrival of his son, thereby giving Rufus an unusual start in life by being the only baby in the world whose father had died in child-birth."

Bookwise, however, the mother survived.

But it doesn't make for as good a joke, does it??

Anthony Perkins: "More coffee, Harold!"

Poor Blue-Eyes. ROTFLMAO.

reply

Anthony Perkins(right after he has been speared by Ffolkes - SPOLIER ALERT!)
"I still...don't like your face."

Famous last words from a dying man.

reply

"Cigarette, Kramer?"

followed by:
"You whacked that ladder as though it's a dinner gong!"

reply

Best lines of the movie:

Perkins:
Even if the Prime Minister promised to kiss my ass in Parliament Square the answer would still be NO!

Moore:
(talking about his will): I am leaving everything to my cats. I want it testified that I am sound of mind......(asks for a witness to sign it)....well GO ON!


LOL

reply

Cigarette kramer?

I still say that whenever I see someone drop a cigarette!
