    Best Film Dialogue

    Semi-Tough 1977 w/Burt Reynolds, Jill Clayburgh & Kris Kristofferson:

    Barbara Jane Bookman: "You'd diddle an alligator if somebody drained the pond."
    Billy Clyde Puckett: "You don't have to drain the pond."

    Excellent - considered a groundbreaking film, TG.

    A recent one from Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, 2019:

    Rick Dalton: "All right, that's too hot. Anything we can do about that heat?"
    Flamethrower Trainer: "Rick, it's a flamethrower."

    Please don't take this as racist, it was just funny as hell when I heard it...From a dimly remembered but now unknown to me spaghetti western from the 60's...One paid gunslinger to another on learning that a new general has taken over the Mexican Army:
