"Play it again, Sam" was not a line in the movie, though this is often quoted as such.

IMO, one of the most underrated movies of all time is Volunteers, which is a movie starring Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

Some great lines from the movie:

For hot weather: "We must be a milfe from the sun."

When you meet someone tall at a business meeting: "I assume you are in charge. But I basing that simply on height."

Funny story: I met Rita Wilson at a party a few years back. I told her how much I liked the movie, and how I frequently used lines from it.

A few months later, Tom Hanks was at a party at my house. I introduced myself. He repeated my name and said "Where do I know that name from?" He paused and then said, "I know. You're the guy that likes Volunteers."

Pretty funny to think that that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were discussing me.

All the time: I may have f**cked my life up flatter than hammered

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

"PUT that COFFEE DOWN!" from Glengarry Glen Ross - My best friend and I used to use this as our intro to any phone conversations that involved something exciting developing in the market. It meant, "Pay attention!" "Listen to this!" The was pre-boglehead, of course.

"It's all about bucks, kid. The rest is conversation." from Wall Street - I'd use this w/relatives and friends any time they'd undervalue the role of money in certain situations (i.e. relationships, marriage, etc.)

"Clean livin'. It pays off every time!" from my all time favorite B movie "52 pick up." I use this line whenever I'm trying to be sarcastic about something in order to prove a point.
