OK, folks! How about this. What do you think is the BEST LAST LINE OF A MOVIE EVER? This thread can include MR. LEONE'S movies. To kick off, I nominate a non-speaking last line. CHARLES BRONSON in DEATH WISH. A silent cinema moment, and yes, i am aware it's a crap movie, but when MISTER BRONSON points his finger at airport would be muggers, it says more than a handful of Shakespeare soliquays. (please excuse spelling).

That maybe, but it doesn't sound like a last line to me...

Yeah, Belkin, shouldn't that read BEST LAST GESTURE?

Anyway, for best last line, I nominate the one at the end of Casablanca.

Butch Cassidy : Wait a minute - you didn't see LaForce out there did you?
Sundance Kid : LaForce? No, why?
Butch Cassidy : Thank God for that. For a moment there I thought we were in trouble.

Other great last lines are:

Well, nobodyís perfect.

Mein Fuhrer, I can walk!

I was cured all right.

A manís got to know his limitations.

This was the story of Howard Beale, the first known instance of a man who was killed because he had lousy ratings.

The horror. The horror.

I'm the boss, I'm the boss, I'm the boss, I'm the boss, I'm the boss...(I'm the) boss, boss, boss, boss, boss, boss.

Rupert Pupkin, ladies and gentlemen. Letís hear it for Rupert Pupkin. Wonderful. Rupert Pupkin, ladies and gentlemen.

Sure, I could have stayed in the past. I could have even been king. But in my own way, I am king. Hail to the king, baby.

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, he's gone.

Who can name them all? Wink

Conductor: What's all the excitement? What happened?
Macreedy: A shooting.
Conductor: Thought it was something. First time the Streamliner's stopped here in four years.
Macreedy: Second time.

FROM ONE OF THE GREATS:
The way I stood in there, packing my suitcase...Only my mind
wasn't on the suitcase, and it wasn't on the weekend, nor was it
on the shirts I was putting in the suitcase either. My mind was
hanging outside the window. It was suspended just about eighteen
inches below...And out there in that great big concrete jungle, I
wonder how many others that are like me. Poor bedevilled guys, on
fire with thirst. Such comical figures to the rest of the world,
as they stagger blindly towards another binge, another bender,
another spree...

AND ANOTHER:

As I said before, I say again, 'Here's, here's to a son, to the House of Frankenstein.'
The maids respond: "Indeed, sir. We hope so, sir."
