View Full Version : Memoriable closing lines from movies

What are some of your favorites?

One I like is from Pirates of Carribean. Captain Jack Sparrow has spent years tirelessly seeking to win back his ship, The Black Pearl. To him a ship represents freedom, a chance to find what adventure lies just over the horizon.

In the end when Sparrow regains control over his ship, as he guides her through the water he gently whispers to her

"Now, bring me the horizon."

Frankly, My Dear, I don't give a damn. Rhett to Scarlet - Gone with the Wind.

Oh, and " A man of vision you say? Yes, a hell of a vision" Woodrow F. Call to reporter at the end of Lonesome Dove.

"Anne Boleyn was beheaded after less than three years of marriage. Thomas Cromwell followed soon after. The Duke of Norfolk was sentenced to death - but was reprieved when Henry died of syphilis, the night before.

"Richard Rich became Chancellor of England - and died in his bed."

A Man for All Seasons.

FWIW it was sweating pipes. Surgically slid a foam pipe cover over the offending cold water line sprayed some bleach and cleaned it all out. Problem solved no plumber bill. Thanks for playing :(

(12) is from Kubrick's "Doctor Strangelove" and is spoken by Peter Sellers, in the title role.

I think (9) is from Welles' "Citizen Kane".

Heres one of my favorite lines from a movie with great lines. He lives now...........only in our memories

08-03-2004, 10:42 AM
A lot of great closing lines, but what makes them great? In my example, the cumillation of the whole movie is summened up in that one pharse "Now, bring me the horizon." The continuing search for what the next day brings. All our hopes and dreams are just over the horizon.


08-03-2004, 11:40 AM
Not quite the closing line but still applicable I believe...

"Hey, the Dude abides."

I also liked...

"Aw, f*#k it man, let's go bowling!" From the same flick.

08-03-2004, 12:08 PM
You win the prize Leigh! :D

Perhaps the most quoted line in movie history:

"I know what you're thinking punk. You're thinking did he fire six shots or only five? And to tell you the truth I've forgotten myself in all this excitement. But being this is a .44 Magnum - the most powerful hand gun in the world and will blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question--Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk! "
