    For some reason I've always loved this Henry Fonda line from Once Upon A Time In The West:

    "How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can't even trust his own pants."

    @keyofsilence - Couldn't agree more, though some of Malcolm Tucker's best lines don't even appear on that page. Everyone should watch The Thick of It. EVERYONE.

    At one point my previous roommate and I were ignorant to who exactly Patrick Dempsey was. Something was said, and I turned to him and fired off "Yeah, well Patrick Dempsey thinks you're a dick." We still use it every so often.

    I have been known to say, "that's none of your damn business and I'll thank you to not ask again. "

    I'm not sure where it came from or if I made it up.

    "Don't be sorry, just change your underwear."
    "If I get stupid, I'll call you. Stay by the phone."

    And others. I LIKE this thread!

    Lost - the throw-away line gold-mine:

    Charlie: They'll find us. They have satellites in space that can take pictures of your license plate.
    Sayid: If only we were all wearing license plates.

    Hurley: Whoever named this place Dark Territory: Genius!

    Charlie: [holds Kate's shirt that she removed while running from bees] Someone left this.
    Kate: It was um... it was full of bees.
    Charlie: I would have thought C's, actually.
    Charlie: [gets cold look from Kate] Sorry.

    Charlie: How am I doing with week two of heroin withdrawal? Or how am I doing with Claire being abducted by the freak who tried to kill me?
    Jack: I gave you aspirin for the heroin withdrawal.

    Addams Family is the motherlode of throw away lines.

    Gomez: [helping Morticia out from straps on a table] Leather straps, red-hot pokers!
    Morticia: Later, my dearest.

    'You can shove it up your arse for nothing and fuck off while you're doing it.'
    Withnail & I, most quotable film of all time I reckon.

    *Grosse Point Blank* is packed to the gills with throways.

    Martin: Well - you don't know my cat. It's very demanding.
    Debi: "It"? You don't know if it's a boy or a girl?
    Martin: I respect its privacy.

    My wife and I love using this one from Gene Wilder in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory":

    Always ends an argument. Or stupidity.
    Plenty more from that film as well...

    I say that same quote, but as Bobby Hill from King of the Hill.

    "Now I have a machine gun. Ho. Ho. Ho."

    My girlfriend and I use this line far too often when playing board games.

    Now, for the ultimate throw-away line, I've got to go with Eddie Izzard who, in the middle of one routine or another punctuated a bit of utter insanity with a calmly stated "Like you do."

    Which I now use all the god damned time. Like you do.

    Pretty much most of Clue.

    "Flames! Flames on the side of my face!"

    "I thought they called men like you a 'fruit?'"

    Something cool to say before getting into a fight.

    "i'm going to activate your dental plan" Better off Dead.

    Oh, Willi Wonka( the Gene wilder one not Johnny Depp) has some great throwaway lines.

    "A little nonsense, now and then, is cherished by the wisest men"
    "You should never doubt what no one is sure about”

    “We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams” ALthough, I have a feeling that most of these qoutes are from some poem or other.
