Certain lines define a movie. Marlene Dietrich in Morocco: "Anyone who has faith in me is a sucker." Too, there are lines that fit actor and character. Mae West in Im No Angel: "Im very quick in a slow way." Jane Fonda in California Suite: "Fit? You think I look fit? What an awful shit you are. I look gorgeous." From the classics to the grade-B slasher movies, over 11,000 quotes are arranged by over 900 subjects, like accidents, double entendres, eyes (and other body parts!), ice cream, luggage, parasites, and ugliness. Each quote gives the movie title, production company, year of release, speaker of the line, and, when appropriate, a comment putting the quote in context.
