21 Bad Boy Hero Quotes That Leave You Speechless

Loki: Yes, I’ve met them.

Tony Stark: Yeah, takes us a while to get any traction, I’ll give you that one. But, let’s do a head count here. Your brother, the demi-God; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breath-taking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins, and you, big fella, you’ve managed to piss off every single one of them.

The Avengers

 

Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair!

James Bond: Your competence is.

Q: Age is no guarantee of efficiency.

James Bond: Or not pulled. It’s hard to know which in your pajamas.

Skyfall

James Bond: What makes you think this is my first time?

Skyfall

 

Zorro: What happened to my clothes?

Lupe: I removed them last night so you wouldn’t catch pneumonia.

Zorro: You removed them?

Lupe: After you came back from the cantina you went for a swim.

Zorro: In my clothes?

Lupe: Sí, señor.

Zorro: This hotel doesn’t have a pool…

Lupe: We have a fountain.

The Legend of Zorro

Ahmed : [given a Viking sword] I cannot lift this.

Herger: Grow stronger.

The 13th Warrior

 

 

Holly : I have a request.

Gruber: What idiot put you in charge?

    Great ones. What about” Go ahead, make my day?” At least I think that’s it.

    Have a great Monday,

      Casablanca is one of my top ten all time favourite movies, too. I should have thought of this one. Thanks, Carrie.
