    There are many but along your line:

    Marco: Next time you have a chance to kill somebody don’t hesitate.

    John McClane shoots him a bunch of times through the table.

    John: Thanks for the advice!

    I’m baaaaaaaaack… 😬

    Almost anything Clint Eastwood ever said.
    I still love his speech in Dirty Harry about how he's not racist because he hates everyone equally including (insert every single racial epithet here). You won't see that part on a tv broadcast.
    Or in Space Cowboys when some kid told him he had a graduate degree from MIT.
    Clint told him "maybe you can get your money back".

    Maybe there should be a thread for Clint quotes.

    " You gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?'

    That's all I got.

    "The frontier place is for people like my white son and his woman and their children. And one day there will be no more frontier. And men like you will go too, like the Mohicans. And new people will come, work, struggle. Some will make their life. But once, we were here."

    The director's cut of 1992's The Last of the Mohicans ends with that.  Sometimes, editors just need to be flayed.

    Cowboy  "Whew!  God All Mighty!  You Two Smell like You Fell Into a Dung Heap!"

    Crapgame  "Reminds You of Home, Don't it?"

    Willard (to Cowboy) "Kind of Does, Don't it Old Buddy?"


    I loved Don Rickles (Crapgame) in Kelly's Heroes.  Donald Sutherland had some great lines as well.

    I was thinking of Zee and an old western came to mind. I think it was the Real McCoys. It stared, a father and son, both were gunfighters. One day, someone asked the father, "Is he the fastest gun in the west?" He replied, "No, I am. No brag, just fact."

    Eli: Cursed be the ground for our sake. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for us. For out of the ground we were taken, for the dust we are... and to the dust we shall return.
    And then he kills a bar full of people 🤣

    "It's a little childish and stupid, but then, SO IS HIGH SCHOOL" - Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

    Really, Matthew Broderick's entire opening monologue and all his "Fourth Wall" breaks in that movie are pure gold.
