Funniest film lines (continued)

How many funny film lines were you able to think of for the Telly's Reel Life blog (penned by Rebecca Davies) ? Not many, judging by the paucity of responses.

I was able to come up with three in short order, shown below. What a wonderful thing is Google, that one can quickly track them down, to ensure they are word perfect. It's also nice to find others who share one's sense of humour, eg that priceless line from Naked Gun.

Cat Ballou

Lee Marvin in Cat Ballou: somebody comments on his eyes, that look awful after a night on the booze, to which he replies "You should see them from my side!"

Take aim .....
Butch Cassidy: You didn't see Lefors out there, did you? Sundance Kid: Lefors? No. Butch Cassidy: Oh, good. For a moment there I thought we were in trouble.

Meanwhile, the Bolivian Army moves into position the largest firing squad in history .....

Nothing to see

There are so many priceless scenes and lines in "Naked Gun", one of my favourite comedy films, a non-stop send-up of Hollywood's cinematic excesses.There's the scene in which a fireworks factory is blowing up after being struck by a man riding a missile. The night sky is lit up by fireballs and starburst explosions.

Then amid all the pyrotechnics, a police officer, megaphone in hand, hoves into view, ushering the crowd of spectators away: “There is nothing to see here, let’s move along, nothing to see”.

If you can think of any more, post them to the Telly thread, and I'll copy and paste them here.
