It's probably been discussed before but anyone have any favorite quotes from the movie?

My favorites:

Been waiting long?

All my life.

There were two things I couldn't get out of my mind. One was Dominic. The way he said, "I slipped," just before he died. The other was you.

Listen to me, you socialist asshole! We don't give a good FART about the workers and their movements.

There's so many.  You've posted quite a few.  Some of the lines that I like or think about that Noodles delivers are:

When Noodles answers Moe on what it all means discussing the letter he received.
"It means .....Get ready".  Moe asks for what.  "That's the one thing it didn't say".

Noodles to Deborah
"To keep from going crazy, you have to cut yourself
off from the outside world.
Just not think about it.  Yet there were years that went by.... seemed like time at all, because you’re not doing anything"

Noodles had quite a few good lines in the final confrontation with Max

"You, Mr. Bailey? 
 I haven’t had a gun in my hand for many, many years.
 My eyes aren’t too good, even with glasses.
 My hands shake.  And I wouldn’t want to miss, Mr. Bailey."

"Some of the jobs we took, and some we didn’t.
 Yours is one we would never touch.
 It’s just the way I see things." 

As well as the lifetime of waste line already cited.
