Who's the character who said that movie line?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about a variation of the Flicks From Just One Thread Line thread in order to pick it up because it seems to have run out it's course.  And with good reason.  In this game we name the character who made the quote from the movie.  I may know most of the movies where those movie lines came, but I probably don't know all the character's who made them, which makes it more interesting.

OK, I'll try the first one.

That would be "Gordon Gekko" (sp?) (Michael Douglas)

Is it OK to give the actor, if you can't remember the character's name?


"The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain."  (I guess either of two characters would do here, since one repeats the line after the other.)



Sure, in an effort to keep it moving, the name of the actor will do.  Not sure about you're clue.

Same character, same scene (I think):

Well let's go then, with the character and the title both of the same name:  Mary Poppins

Thanks, I'll pass, was just checking on things.


Revenge is a dish that tastes best when it is served cold!

I know of this line because it's one of my favorite movies.  However, I won't expect those here (most here) to know that movie all that well.  But I also know it's been used in a particular movie that many here are very familiar with and it's from a particular genre that many here are quite hip with. I'll accept any character's (or actor's name).

Don Corleone used my quote in "The Godfather 2".  You're also correct George, It was from Star Trek II but Khan's line was "Kirk ole friend, do you know the Klingon proverb, Revenge is a dish best served cold?". 

But my favorite is John Creasy (Denzel Washington) in Man on Fire, "Revenge is a dish best served cold!"

You're up.
