    Throw-away lines that became inside jokes:

    Basket Case 3: I see you brought your lettuce.

    Ghostbusters 2: Oh, but I woo. (all Yanosh lines are quoteable)

    Brain Candy: This urine is Great!

    Boogie Nights: My wife is down in the driveway with an ass in her cock!

    Friday the 13th Part 4: You're neat! (instigates a sex scene)

    Urg, I guess I am a humor Nazi? People what is with several of these posts that are just one-liners?

    If you can quote it without the preceding line, that's just a silly phrase or a catchphrase. Or maybe I am misunderstanding why this thread is different than the Portable Statements thread ("Portable Statements 2: Ones you got from movies edition").

    The correct examples of what I consider blink-and-you-missed it are the Lost and Grosse Point Blank snippets. A muted punchline for just the viewers that were actually paying attention to the dialogue.

    But it's still a punchline. It subverts timing by taking away the pause that tells viewers to listen, but doesn't void timing and context completely.

    If we are including one-liners, then we are just talking about funny/absurd phrases. Those are often delivered flat, as in not yelled out with flashing text, but not because the writers are trying to challenge you.

    I'm only doing the bathrobe-on-lawn thing in this thread because I really, really like muted punchlines. Though, haven't got one I can think of at the moment. Maybe I'll rewatch a couple Parks and Recreation episodes to stock up.

    Also from Brain Candy when ask who you are... "just a guy."

    and when dealing with a man with a chest buster. via Space Balls.
    "Get this man some water."
    "Water my ass, get this man some Pepto Bismol"

    As @BrianMowrey rightly pointed out - a proper example, from LOST:

    (While on a plane experiencing severe turbulence and they might all die:)
    Jack: (to Ben) "How can you *read*?"
    Ben: (dryly) "My mother taught me."

    Oh, ok, fine.

    From earlier, re: Clue

    Mrs. White: [after Mr. Green shoots Wadsworth] Are you a cop?
    Mr. Green: No, I'm a plant.
    Miss Scarlet: A plant? I thought men like you were usually called a fruit.

    Wadsworth: You *were* jealous that your husband was schtupping Yvette. That's why you killed him, too!
    Mrs. White: Yes. Yes, I did it. I killed Yvette. I hated her, so much...
    Mrs. White: it-it- the f - it -flam - flames. Flames, on the side of my face, breathing-breathl- heaving breaths. Heaving breaths... Heathing...

    This might be too close to a one liner, but I have always loved, in HardCoreLogo

    Joe Dick discusses with the camera, why his Bandmate Billy Talent works in LA....

    "Billy just wants the models and limousines, and I'm happy with hookers and taxi cabs"

    "You see in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig."

    And since BrianMowrey reminded me of Parks & Rec (not at all an exact quote):
    "Dinner parties combine two of my favourite things. Dinner and parties. It's like if you could have xbox pancakes."

    @Beamish: your line from earlier was from, sadly enough, Ace Ventura Pet Detective.

    That's none of your damned business, and I'll thank you to stay out of my personal affairs.

    I guess I also am a little blurry on what "counts" in this thread, but since this is not an exam to be graded by Whitechapelian schoolmarms, I'll just go ahead and say EVERY MARX BROTHERS MOVIE EVER.

    Rufus: Not that I care, but where is your husband?
    Mrs. Teasdale: Why, he's dead.
    Rufus T. Firefly: I bet he's just using that as an excuse.
    Mrs. Teasdale: I was with him to the very end.
    Rufus T. Firefly: No wonder he passed away.
    Mrs. Teasdale: I held him in my arms and kissed him.
    Rufus T. Firefly: Oh, I see, then it was murder. Will you marry me? Did he leave you any money? Answer the second question first.

    Parks n Rec: (paraphrasing, give or take)

    LESLIE: Ann, I think I'm going to kiss him.
    ANN: Yay!
    LESLIE: Not "yay!" You're supposed to talk me out of it!
    ANN: Oh [totally deflated] Don't do it, Leslie. Think of your career.
    LESLIE: [yelling rapidly into the phone] I don't care what you say, Ann, I'm going to make out with him! On his face!
    ANN: Yay!

    The last line is the throw away - Leslie doesn't even hear it, she's hanging up and charging over to her eventually-to-be-beau.

    A lot of the Simpsons falls into this category for me -

    "We have a zero-tolerance policy for things like this that happen in front of eyewitnesses."
    "There's no trick to it - it's just a simple trick!"
    "The Do-What-You-Feel festival is today, whenever you feel like showing up. A welcome change from the Do-As-We-Say festival, started by German immigrants in 1946."

    There's more. Many more.

    Probably not strictly a throw away line, but one of the best one liners in the history of the Simpsons

    Lisa: Did you get Waiting to Exhale?
    Homer: They put us on the Waiting to Exhale waiting list but they said don't hold your breath.

    My Simpsons favorite is probably.

    Beer, the cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems.

    Groucho Marx on /You Bet Your Life/, doing the contestant interviews:

    Groucho: "And what do you do?"
    Woman: "I'm a model."
    Groucho: "A model? What do you model, clay?"

    REPO MAN - Harry Dean Stanton in the car, to Emilio Estevez - "What're you, a fucking commie?" - and, a bit later - "You better not be no fucking Christian, either!"

    I use both on an almost daily basis.
