Default Your favourite and least favourite quotes/scenes in the Beatles' films.

Pretty self explanatory I should think

Unfortunately I'm yet to see Yellow Submarine...

FAVOURITES

A HARD DAY'S NIGHT

The scene where the boys find the old man in the wardrobe, and continually just shut the door on him again.

John's bathtime.

"I now declare this bridge...open."

HELP!

Definitely my favourite film, there are so many great scenes that I love, particularly with Ringo and John, especially when John refers to people by their profession.

Ringo: What was it that first attracted you to me?
John: Well you're very polite, aren't you?

Scientist, you're getting nowhere are you, scientist?
Jeweler, you've failed!

Despite the fact it seems to be a rather insignificant scene, I laugh when Clang is randomly talking about "sex creeping in".

The scene at the airport, with the boys in their disguises and how, after convincing Ringo they weren't going there, they end up in the Bahamas.

MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR

For some reason Aunt Jessie's dream, despite how disturbing it is, has always made me laugh.

The musical sequences, in particular I Am The Walrus and Your Mother Should Know (the latter mainly for the choreography).

LET IT BE

Paul and John singing Two Of Us.

John and Yoko dancing to I Me Mine.

The rooftop concert.

LEAST FAVOURITE

A HARD DAY'S NIGHT

The recurring chatter between Norm and Shake about being tall and short.

HELP!

The recurring "famous" thing.

MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR

Basically anything that isn't on my favourites list.

LET IT BE

Also anything that isn't on my favourites list.

AHDN-
This is a battle of nerves between John and me.
John hasnt got any.
What?
Nerves

Help!-
Hold on. It's them. And only me and Paul know we're here.
I know we're here

MMT:
I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts. There they are a standing in a row. C'mon, join in, what's the matter with ya?

Yellow Sub-
Is that the motor?
Cant you tell one when you see one?
Course I can. Let me peruse it.
What do you think?
I think I burnt me finger

And I dont think I have any fav quotes from LIB...

OMG... I could go on and on

For AHDN I just love that whole film, really. I love how they keep saying Paul's grandfather is so "clean", then Paul's all "He's a king mixer, cost you a fortune in breech of promise cases" and the scene with granddad in the cop station. "Watch out for yer brisket!"
Victor Spinetti, "I need a bottle of milk. And some tranquilizers." HAHAHA
And of course the scene with George and the shirts is always wonderful to see.
"You can be replaced."
"I don't care"

Help! is also full of great little goodies, although I think my fave line of the whole movie is George, about Paul "don't encourage him, you've already got the part Paul". George is so funny in that movie - keeps digging at Paul. Hee!!

Thumbs up

AHDN:
I won an award.
A likely story.
It's on the wall in my office.

Help!:
I'm always getting winked at these days. Used to be you, didn't it, Paul?

Let It Be:
And I've got rubber shoes as well...
And you're made of wood!

From Help!, I just love when Ringo and his drum set fall through the floor (You're Gonna Lose That Girl) and as John, Paul and George look down through the hole John says, "that WAS you buzzin'!"

Practically all of AHDN!! lol

"Hey pardon me for askin, but who's that little old man?" that entire exchange is great, my friend and I used to recite it haha.

"Hey Mr. can we have our ball back??" Hehe they're so childish here its hilarious.

"Please sir can I have one to surge me sir please sir?" LOL, oh John..

The If I Fell Scene (just b/c I love the song)

"She looks more like him than I do"

The bathtub scene <3 "Hedwig headphones!!" lol

"And me mother asked me before we left for America if we wanted any sandwhiches"- I swear, most random line EVER lol

"Dead Grotty"

The way the run around like maniacs in the field. B/c honestly, who hasn't done that at least once with their friends?

"I now declare this bridge, open."

"Have you got a nail-file these handcuffs are killing me"

The way Victor Spenetti is like "if they aren't here in three minutes" and then the lads just walk onto the stage

THE DRESSING ROOM SCENE!! Paul quoting Hamlet, Shake hitting on the hair dryer, "my name's betty", "I can get you on the stage"-and John's maniac dance that follows it <3

Paul's grandfather--> "I'm he's grandfather...I mean!!"

The chase scene, and how John runs into the police dept just to catch his breath

So much gold packed into one little movie!

Got some more from Help! here:

"Now turn it to the right, and it locks"
"I am turning it to the right, it is locking. I am lifting it up. I am moving my left leg, I am moving my right leg"
"Oh, give it to me!"

"without the ring, there will be no sacrifice, without the sacrifice, there will be no congregation, without the congregation, no...more...me..."
"This is so"

It's been a while since I've seen AHDN but my favs are the bathroom scene where George is having a go at the bloke about shaving and then tells him to stick his tongue back in, "It's disgusting hanging out all pink and naked."
Also the exchange John has with the woman which ends with John saying "She looks more like him than I do." Hilarious.

From AHDN:

He can talk then, can he?
Course he can talk. He's a human being isnt he?
Well if he's your grandfather who knows? Hahahahaha!

i love it when ringo is asked if he is a mod or a rocker, then replys, 'i'm a mocker.' god i'm unsure if that is actually from a film or an interview.

also in help when ringo pretends he is a tough monster type character, but when someone squirts paint on him he looks down and starts to cry. so the quotes would be, 'aaarrrr!' and then 'boo hoo!'

Let's see I think more Help! is in order:

"The fire brigade once got my head out of some railings."
"Did you want them to?"
"No. I used to leave it there when I wasnt using it for school (John's expression is priceless here). You can see a lot of the world from railings"
