    Favorite Movie Dialogues

    one of my favorite movies for dialogue is Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are dead. extremely witty writing - hilarious stuff and delivered very fast - brilliant.

    this is the game they start playing first called Questions:

    Rosencrantz: Do you want to play questions?
    Guildenstern:How do you play that?
    Rosencrantz: You have to ask a question.
    Guildenstern: Statement. One - Love.
    Rosencrantz: Cheating.
    Guildenstern: How?
    Rosencrantz: I haven't started yet.
    Guildenstern: Statement. Two - Love.
    Rosencrantz: Are you counting that?
    Guildenstern: What?
    Rosencrantz: Are you counting that?
    Guildenstern: Foul. No repetition. Three - Love and game.
    Rosencrantz: I'm not going to play if you're going to be like that.

    this is the game a little later as it's progressed...

    Guildenstern: Whose serve?
    Rosencrantz: Err...
    Guildenstern: Hesitation! Love... one.
    Rosencrantz:Whose go?
    Guildenstern: Why?
    Rosencrantz: Why not?
    Guildenstern:: What for?
    Rosencrantz:Foul! No synonyms! One... all.
    Guildenstern: What in God's name is going on?
    Rosencrantz: Foul! No rhetoric! Two... one.
    Guildenstern:What does it all add up to?
    Rosencrantz:Can't you guess?
    Guildenstern: Were you addressing me?
    Rosencrantz: Is there anyone else?
    Guildenstern: Who?
    Rosencrantz:How would I know?
    Guildenstern: Why do you ask?
    Rosencrantz: Are you serious?
    Guildenstern: Was that rhetoric?
    Rosencrantz:No.
    Guildenstern: Statement! Two all. Game point.

    great movie if you've never seen it - highly recommended.

    I can't ever take your advice again after you told me to rent "Wimbledon"

    Okay, so we've had a "favorite monologue" thread, let's add a character and post some of your favorite dialogue.

    Sundance: What's your idea this time?
    Butch: Bolivia.
    Sundance: What's Bolivia?
    Butch: Bolivia. That's a country, stupid! In Central or South America, one or the other.
    Sundance: Why don't we just go to Mexico instead?
    Butch: 'Cause all they got in Mexico is sweat and there's too much of that here. Look, if we'd been in business during the California Gold Rush, where would we have gone? California - right?
    Sundance: Right.
    Butch: So when I say Bolivia, you just think California. You wouldn't believe what they're finding in the ground down there. They're just fallin' into it. Silver mines, gold mines, tin mines, payrolls so heavy we'd strain ourselves stealin' 'em.
    Sundance: (chuckling) You just keep thinkin', Butch. That's what you're good at.
    Butch: Boy, I got vision, and the rest of the world wears bifocals.​
