Red, played by Morgan Freeman, in The Shawshank Redemption?  One of the greatest stories written and one of the best films, too.  A reference that makes you think of prison, to be sure!

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

To be completely sure... That, and "The Green Mile". BOTH fantastic stories. Excellent screen adaptations, as well!
That was the longest night of his life.
Three down.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Sounds like Shawshank Redemption to me...

And for my Grande Finale, A Clockwork Orange.

Those are the only one's I can remember, I'd say I took a decent chunk out of that list.

The Princess Bride
For those of you that have never seen any of those movies, I highly recommend all of them. FANTASTIC examples of American Cinema!

Well this was a thread I thought should've gone further... So anyone that wants to play along--

1) Life doesn't care about your vision. You just gotta roll with it.

2) Get your cousin outta that clown costume! Havin' that heat stroke again. Scarin' white folks...

3) Don't clutter up a clever scheme with morality

4) After Shiloh, the South never smiled.

5) You'll find a slight squeeze on the hooter an excellent safety precaution.

6) What the hell was that you little freckle face cartoon? Did I give you permission to sneeze, Opie?

7) Oh come alive, Rachel. Please come alive! Don't be dead. You can't be dead. Come alive, Rachel!

8) If that machine can do what you say it can do, destroy it, George! Destroy it before it destroys you!

9) Ask any dope rat where their junk sprang and they'll say they scraped it from that who scored it from this who bought it off so and after four or five connections the list always ends with the Pin. But I bet you got every rat in town together and said 'show your hands' if any of them've actually seen the Pin, you'd get a crowd of full pockets.

10) First rule of leadership: everything is your fault.

Here's a line from one of the greatest cult following movies IMHO!!

"Awww, come on!  Who makes the cut is there a raffle or something...........ME!!!  ME!!  I'm the guy!!!! I got their names, I got their phone numbers, I know where they live, I know who they're f@#%ing!!   We could kill Everyone!!!"

Props to the one who gets that!!
