There's a scene between the stoic Templar knight and the young and beautiful wife of the lord of the castle. Naturally the lord is old and "uninterested" in his wife, so her roving eye falls on the handsome knight, who is doing his very best to stay away from her. Of course she continues to pursue him, handling his sword (I kid you not) and asking if she's holding it properly, just in case she needs to defend herself. Cheese-o-rama. But then, just when I think I'm going to have to look for something else to watch, the knight comes along with one of those great one-liners that I just can't resist: "I fight so you don't have to."
I admit it - I'm a sucker for a good line. Take, for example, Daniel Day-Lewis in "The Last of the Mohicans:" "No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you."
|Outta my way, lady!|
They all have great one-liners (it helps that they're all hot, too. Yes, even Clark). Sure, on their own the lines might seem a little over the top, but if there's enough blood, sweat, and tears to raise the stakes high enough (or if you're Michael Fassbender, in pretty much any situation), you can ask me my sign and I'll probably fall for it.
What about you? Are you a sucker for a good movie line? Feel free to share any favorites I may have missed!
And happy weekend, all!
