Favourite quotes from films

Here is a selected list of some of my favourite quotes from various films. My main criterion for selection has been "do I still remember this quote months/years after watching the film?" Some of these films haven't stood the test of time that well as a whole, but I think these quotes are still relevant.

"The future isn't set. The only fate is what we make for ourselves."
(John Connor, The Terminator)

"Anger is more useful than despair."
(T-101, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines)

"You have to study your opponent, how he moves, so you know what he's going to do before he does it. You have to know that one moment in every fight when you win or lose, and you have to know how to wait for it. And you have to not care whether you live or die."
(Lancelot, First Knight)

"Let's get jinky with it!"
(Velma, Scooby Doo)

"We could be thrown anywhere in the galaxy."
"Anywhere but here."
(Professor John Robinson and Major Don West, Lost In Space)

"I'm not going to put a bullet in your head, old boy, because that's not the way we do business!"
(Biggles, Biggles: Adventures in Time)

"If by my life or death I can protect you, I will."
(Aragorn, The Fellowship of the Ring)

"Ohana means family, and family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten."
(Lilo, Lilo & Stitch)

"I've grown up! I've got my own life now!"
"I know that! I just wanted to be part of it."
(Max and Goofy, A Goofy Movie)
