Looks like I need to watch a LOT more films - I only recognised 2 of those quotes!!
iTunes 10.7 on ASUS x401, Arcam DAC, Audioquest, Arcam Solo, QED, Monitor Audio R250 + REL Quake
"Doctor, what's your impression of Mr Stryker?"
"I'm sorry I don't do impresions, my training is in clinical psychology"
"I say hurl. If you blow chunks and she comes back, she's yours. But if you spew and she bolts, then it was never meant to be"
JRiver MC17 -> Cambridge Audio DACmagic+ -> Roksan Caspian M2 -> ProAc D18
From one of my fave films of all time:
"We're on a mission from God"
"Why not? If the EDITED fits, wear it!"
"What kind of music do you normally have here?" "Oh we got both kinds, Country AND Western"
"It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything".
David @Frank Harvey Hi-Fi, Coventry
[Withnail picks up a bottle of lighter fluid]
Marwood: I wouldn't drink that if I was you.
Withnail: Why not?
Marwood: Because I don't advise it. Even the w*nkers on the site wouldn't drink that, that's worse than meths.
Withnail: Nonsense. This is a far superior drink to meths. The w*nkers don't drink it because they can't afford it.
[he pours the lighter fluid down his throat. He gags and gasps]
Withnail: Have we got any more?
[Marwood shakes his head]
Withnail: Liar. What's in your toolbox?
Marwood: No, we have nothing. Sit down.
Withnail: Liar. You've got antifreeze.
Marwood: You bloody fool, you should never mix your drinks!
[Withnail laughs hysterically and falls to floor, and then vomits on Marwood's feet]

Funny, I watched Withnail last night, for the first time in ages. I'm surprised this is the first Withnail quote on this thread.
Given the high obituary thread count, I'm also surprised nobody mentioned Richard Griffiths' passing.

"You cannot threaten the dead with death, my friend".
"You kill or you die, or you die and you kill".
"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again." André Gide
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you're looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that will be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you.

"You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"
My fellow countrymen do have a way with words.
(That's me, not a quote)
Taken in context i could quite easily p*ss my pants when listening to that
Everyone fights. No one quits. You don't do your job, I'll shoot you myself.
