I just used this line earlier today: from the Jerk - "It's not the money, it's the STUFF!"

From Local Hero:
Mac MacIntyre: Where's the door here?
Gordon Urquhart: There is no door. Just knock on the window.
Mac MacIntyre: How do you do business with a man who has no door?
Victor: The ethics are just the same.

[Mac is buying shampoo]
Mrs. Wyatt: Dry, normal or greasy?
Mac MacIntyre: Normal. Extra normal.

Fast Times At Ridgemont High
Brad Hamilton: Why don't you get a job Spicoli?
Jeff Spicoli: What for?

So hard to choose:
Bull Durham:
"Don't Think, it can only hurt the ballclub"

Undercover Brother:
"If you mess with the fro, you've got to go!"

"For as long as I could remember, I've always wanted to be a gangster"

The speech by Terrence Mann at the end of Field of Dreams:
Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
And finally, I just LOVE the closing monologue by Red in The Shawshank Redemption
I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.
Seen it a hundred times and it still brings a tear to my eye every time I see it.

From The Public Enemy "Tom: There you go with that wishin' stuff again. I wish you was a wishing well, so that I could tie a bucket to ya and sink ya."

What a great film and there are lines I could quote all day from it.
