Please feel free to add your own remembrance.

Mine is from the classic "Sleeper" by Woody Allan
For those that don't know, Woody Allan is a comic before all else and has somewhat of a bizarre sense of humor. If you haven't seen it and you enjoy this type of humor, you owe it to yourself to watch it.

To preface a little bit, Woody (playing the part of a quirky second hand book shop owner) had gone into the hospital for a routine Gall Bladder operation ... and woke up 200 years later.
While trying to figure out where he was and what had happened he wandered into a cave and found ... you guessed it, an old beetle. Then he got in, turned the key and it fired right up and said (something like):

Old Bugs never die!

I didn't use quotes because I'm not sure if those are the exact words, but it was something like that.

His maid was sick of his bitching so she told him"If I was your wife I'd poison your food."
To which he replied "if you were my wife I'd eat it".

John Winger:
"Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it's usually something unusual. But now I know why I have always lost women to guys like you. I mean, it's not just the uniform. It's the stories that you tell. So much fun and imagination."

from Stripes.

and from the movie "Barfly" which was a Charles Bukowski book
