    What movie's that line from?

    Here's a neat little game we can play: Find a line of dialogue from a movie, and post it in this thread for the rest of us to guess what film it's from. A couple rules and guidelines: Try not to use any obvious catch phrases, like "May the Force be with you," for instance. And don't post any lines that contain profanity - remember, this is a "G"-rated forum. Other than that, the dialogue can be from any movie you can think of. If it's a popular film or a well-known classic, try to find a relatively obscure line of dialogue from it - something that'll have everyone guessing. I'll go first and give you an example of what I mean:

    "Amy, it's me - your uncle Dorothy!"

    Now what movie is that from?
    Good luck!

    Nice idea! Of course, games like this aren't quite the same since the advent of the Internet and powerful search engines ...

    If I'm not mistaken, that's Dustin Hoffman talking to Teri Garr in "Tootsie", directed by the late great Sydney Pollack. (and I didn't even have to look it up!)

    You're close; actually, Dustin is talking to Jessica Lange's baby daughter (well, her character's, anyway) while trying to get the kid to stop crying while he's baby-sitting in his "Dorothy Michaels" disguise.
    But you get kudos for correctly guessing the movie....

    How about this one:

    Opening and closing sequences of Fail Safe. After 9 months in the Brooklyn Naval Shipyard, I thought the movie had a happy ending.

    Job was that bad, huh?
    Anyway, here's another mystery quote:

    Wasn't the job, it was the place, fortunately we got done with it went back to sea.
