2010s in Moments: Line By Line
#1
Quotes! Speeches! Monologues! Exchanges! Witty repartee! And more. 

I will start with this deeply creepy moment in which Jake Gyllenhaal leveled up his career with a single speech: 

Quote:"Now I like you, Nina. And I look forward to our time together. But you have to understand, fifteen thousand isn't all that I want. From here on, starting now, I want my work to be credited by the anchors and on a burn. The name of my company is Video Production News, a professional news-gathering service. That's how it should be read and that's how it should be said. I also want to go to the next rung and meet your team, and the station manager, and the director, and the anchors, and start developing my own personal relationships. I'd like to start meeting them this morning. You'll take me around, you'll introduce me as the owner and president of Video Production News, and remind them of some of my many other stories. I'm not done. I also want to stop our discussion over prices. This will save time. So when I say that a particular number is my lowest price, that's my lowest price and you can be assured that I arrived at whatever that number is very carefully. Now, when I say that I want these things, I mean that I want them and I don't want to have to ask again. And the last thing that I want, Nina, is for you to do the things that I ask you to do when we're alone together in your apartment, NOT LIKE THE LAST TIME. So, I'll tell you what. I have the van crash on Moorpark tonight. It was a couple of stringers actually. That could lead by itself on an average night. I'd be willing to throw that in for free. So what do you say, do we have a deal?"

Ottway's grieving, shouted prayer at the end of THE GREY. Earned by everything that's come before, remembered and experienced by Ottway. More genuine and more deeply spiritual than all of Fireproof, Left Behind, and God's Not Dead combined.

'Chewie...we're home.'

That line gets me every time. It's where the nostalgia bomb went off.

All the fucking feelings, every time.

Pretty much anything Gyllenhaal says in Nightcrawler belongs here.

Also:

"It's funny... you were so scary in the dark." POP

One of the only times I've truly felt the temperature in the entire theater change on a single line. An incredible moment.

"I heard you struck my son."
"Yes, sir, I did."
"And may I ask why?"
"Yeah, well, because he stole John Wick's car, sir, and killed his dog."
[beat]
"Oh."

The amount of work that pause and "Oh" did in building up John Wick's character cannot be overstated.

TDKR has a ton of great lines:

"The shadows betray you, because they belong to me!"

"Do you feel in charge?"

Selina: "I'm not bluffing!"
Batman: "They know. They just don't care."

(The last exchange has always tickled me. It feels incredibly true to the comic book origins. Batman's reply seems like it was ripped right from the page.)

“Bravo! You have symphonies in you, brother.”
Alien: Covenant

Probably not a popular choice, but whatever your thoughts are on the film as a whole, David teaching Walter not just how to simply play the flute, but how to think creatively, is one of my favorite scenes from the last ten years. Aside from being rich with subtext, charming and more than a little erotic, the scene is also a technical marvel. Fassbender is playing two completely distinctive characters that are sharing the same space in a scene with very few cuts, and at no point did it ever feel inauthentic.

It warms my heart that Ridley Scott, at 79, was able to make such a bizarre, off-putting sci-fi horror film that that absolutely radiates contempt for humanity, and I think this is the best scene of the film.

"Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears! It ceases to exist without me. No, you clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!"

Still for my money the funniest line in What We Do in the Shadows:

Vladislav: Leave me to do my dark bidding on the internet!

Viago: What are you bidding on?

Vladislav: I am bidding on a table.

Clement's delivery of that last line is just note perfect.
