    From The Third Man (paraphrasing):

    "You see those people down there? They look like ants. Do you mean to tell me that you would be upset if one of them stopped moving?"

    Nora Charles: Say, what's that man doing in my drawers?

    From The Thin Man

    Another of my favorites:

    Reporter: Say listen, is he working on a case?
    Nora Charles: Yes, yes!
    Reporter: What case?
    Nora Charles: A case of scotch. Pitch in and help him.

    So many great lines:

    Nora Charles: Waiter, will you serve the nuts? I mean, will you serve the guests the nuts?

    One more:

    Nick Charles: I'm a hero. I was shot twice in the Tribune.
    Nora Charles: I read where you were shot 5 times in the tabloids.
    Nick Charles: It's not true. He didn't come anywhere near my tabloids.

    ^ Classic movie.

    "I want that head so sanitary and squared away that the Virgin Mary herself would be proud to go in there and take a dump."

    -

    "This is my rifle. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my rifle and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen."

    From Duck Soup:

    Rufus T. Firefly: Married. I can see you right now in the kitchen, bending over a hot stove. But I can't see the stove.

    From Night at the Opera:

    Otis B. Driftwood: It's all right, that's in every contract. That's what they call a sanity clause.
    [Fiorello laughs loudly]

    Evil: God isn't interested in technology. He cares nothing for the microchip or the silicon revolution. Look how he spends his time, forty-three species of parrots! Nipples for men!
    Robert: Slugs.
    Evil: Slugs! HE created slugs! They can't hear. They can't speak. They can't operate machinery. Are we not in the hands of a lunatic?

    Back to the OP, I think The Princess Bride is one of the most brilliant movies ever made.

    From As Good As It Gets, Helen Hunt's character speaking about Jack Nicholson's character in one of those "I'll have what she's having." moments:

    Carol Connelly: Why can't I have a normal boyfriend? Just a regular boyfriend, one that doesn't go nuts on me!
    Beverly Connelly: Everybody wants that, dear. It doesn't exist.

    “Listen Joey, it’s going to be so different. There you can get all kinds of jobs. Not just sweat and dirt all the time. And the places you go. We’re going to hit some nice spots. Have us some good times. No more sitting in some restaurant all night or driving up and down Main St. looking for something new that damned well ain’t there. Oh, Joey, there’s going to be so much there we won’t know where to begin”.
