Ruben Fleischer

Zombieland (2009)
Columbus: It's amazing how fast the world can go from bad to total shit storm.
Columbus: In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets. I mean, one more clean shot to the head, and this lady could have avoided becoming a human Happy Meal. Woulda... coulda... shoulda.  
Columbus: You almost knocked over your alcohol with your knife. 
Tallahassee: ...The day he was born I just lost my mind. 
Bill Murray: Oh, I do it to blend in. You know. Zombies don't mess with other zombies. Buddy of mine, makeup guy, he showed me how to do this. Corn starch. You know, some berries, a little licorice for the ladies. Suits my lifestyle, you know. I like to get out and do stuff. Just played nine holes on the Riviera. Just walked on. Nobody there. 
Columbus: Yeah, I shave every morning but sometimes by like 4:30 I'll have a thing. I mean, I know it's called a five o'clock shadow but sometimes I'll get it prematurely.
Columbus: I've had always my whole life wanted to brush a girl's hair over her ear.

Easy A (2010)
Olive Penderghast: The rumors of my promiscuity have been greatly exaggerated. 

Marianne: There's a higher power that will judge you for your indecency. 
Olive Penderghast: Tom Cruise? 

Mrs. Griffith: [about Micah] He's not the sharpest Christian in the bible.  

Olive Penderghast: [to Evan, about their imaginary trist] I want a one hundred dollar gift card deposited into my locker by noon tomorrow. Preferably to The Gap, but I'd also take, or Office Max. Actually make it Office Max - I have my eye on a label maker. We did not have sex. I let you fondle my chest, and it was a glorious moment for you. Unmatched by anything you have heretofore experienced... including cake. 
Rhiannon: Just because you lost your virginity doesn't mean you can go around throwing your cat at everybody 

Olive Penderghast: Do you have a religion section? 
Bookstore guy: It's right over there. Can I help you with something?  
Olive Penderghast: The Bible. 
Bookstore guy: That's in bestsellers, right next to Twilight.

Robert Zemeckis

Forrest Gump (1994)
Forrest Gump: And cause I was a gazillionaire, and I liked doin it so much, I cut that grass for free.
Forrest Gump: You know it's funny what a young man recollects? 'Cause I don't remember bein' born. I don't recall what I got for my first Christmas and I don't know when I went on my first outdoor picnic. But I do remember the first time I heard the sweetest voice in the wide world. 
Jenny Curran: Were you scared in Vietnam?  
Forrest Gump: Yes. Well, I-I don't know. Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to come out... and then it was nice. It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou. There was always a million sparkles on the water... like that mountain lake. It was so clear, Jenny, it looked like there were two skies one on top of the other. And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn't tell where heaven stopped and the earth began. It's so beautiful.

Anthony Minghella

The Talented Mr Ripley (1999)
Tom Ripley: Don't you just take the past and put it in a room in a basement and lock the door and never go in there? That's what I do, And then you meet someone special and all you want to do is to toss them the key and say; open up, step inside, but you can't, because it's dark, There's demons and if anybody saw how ugly it is... I keep wanting to do that, fling the door open just let light in and clean everything out.
Peter: Sorry, I'm completely lost.  
Tom Ripley: I know. I'm lost, too. I'm going to be stuck in the basement, aren't I, that's my, that's my... terrible, and alone, and dark, and I've lied about who I am, and where I am, and now no-one will ever find me.  
Peter: What do you mean... lied about who you are? 
Tom Ripley: I always thought it'd be better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.  
Peter: What are you talking about? You're not a nobody. That's the last thing you are.
Peter: Good things about Mr. Ripley? Could take some time. Tom is talented. Tom is tender... Tom is beautiful... Tom is a mystery. Tom is not a nobody. Tom has secrets he doesn't want to tell me, and I wish he would. Tom has nightmares. That's not a good thing. Tom has someone to love him. That is a good thing. Tom is crushing me. Tom is crushing me... Tom, you're crushing me!

Bryan Singer

The Usual Suspects (1995)
Verbal: Who is Keyser Soze? He is supposed to be Turkish. Some say his father was German. Nobody believed he was real. Nobody ever saw him or knew anybody that ever worked directly for him, but to hear Kobayashi tell it, anybody could have worked for Soze. You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone. 
Dave Kujan: Do you believe in him, Verbal? 
Verbal: Keaton always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze.
