Great, not so well, remembered movie lines

Observations of a Middle-aged Dragon with a tattoo: 

Great lines capture the essence of a scene, a movie, a life and in some cases a generation.

We all remember lines like Gone with the Wind’s:  ‘Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn’. Then there’s the one that was never said in the movie Casablanca: ‘Play it again Sam’ what Bogie actually said was ‘You played it for her, you can play it for me! Play it Sam. Play as Time Goes By.’

Everyone remembers: Forrest from Forrest Gump  saying, ‘My mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.’

But may have forgotten: ‘Me and Jenny goes together like peas and carrots.’ 

1933: DUCK SOUP: Groucho Marx: ‘You know, you haven't stopped talking since I came here? You must have been vaccinated with a phonograph needle.’ 

1954: SABRINA: Thomas her father: ‘He’s still David Larrabee and you’re still the chauffeur’s daughter. And you’re still reaching for the moon.’ 

Sabrina: ‘No father. The moon is reaching for me.’ 

1957: THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS: J.J. Hunsecker ‘I'd hate to take a bite outta you. You're a cookie full of arsenic.’

1958: VERTIGO: 

Scottie: ‘Don’t you think it’s sort of a waste for the two of us to…’

1970: BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS: Ashley: ‘You’re a groovy boy. I’d like to strap you on sometime.’

1978: CALIFORNIA SUITE: Hannah: ‘You’re worse than a hopeless romantic. You’re a hopeful one.’

1981: BODY HEAT: 

Ned: ‘Maybe you shouldn’t dress like that.’ 

Matty: ‘This is a blouse and a skirt. I don’t know what you’re talking about.’ 

Ned: ‘You shouldn’t wear that body.’

1996: THE LAST KISS GOODNIGHT: Charly Baltimore: ‘Were you always this stupid, or did you take lessons?’

1999: THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY: Ripley: ‘I always thought it would be better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.’

George: ‘How many numbers you got?’ 

Erin Brockovich: ‘Oh, I got numbers comin' outta my ears. For instance: ten’.

Erin Brockovich: ‘Yeah. That's how many months old my baby girl is.’ 

George: ‘You got a little girl?’ 

Erin Brockovich: ‘Yeah. Yeah, sexy, huh? How 'bout this for a number? Six. That's how old my other daughter is, eight is the age of my son, two is how many times I've been married - and divorced; sixteen is the number of dollars I have in my bank account. 850-3943. That's my phone number, and with all the numbers I gave you, I'm guessing zero is the number of times you're gonna call it.’
