Joshua: To me, you are a lily, and I want water.
Lilia: Joshua, I thought you'd never come down.
Joshua: Water before love, my girl.
Lilia: Oh, does it take the entire Nile to quench your thirst?
Joshua: No, only your lips.


Moses: Would you bury this old woman alive in a tomb of rock?
Yochabel: Wise and Noble One, I was caught. I had not the strength to free myself.
Moses: Your shoulders should not bear a burden, old woman.
Yochabel: The Lord has renewed my strength and lightened my burdens.
Moses: He would have done better to remove them.


Moses: If your god is almighty, why does he leave you in bondage?
Joshua: He will chose the hour of our freedom and the man who will deliver it!


Nefretiri: I could never love you.
Rameses: Does that matter? You will be my wife. You will come to me whenever I call you,and I will enjoy that very much. Whether you enjoy it or not is your own affair. But I think you will...

The Omen is a classic, that still has the power to genuinely scare people, even decades later...


Robert Thorn: What do you know about my son?
Father Brennan: Everything.
Robert Thorn: And what is that?
Father Brennan: I saw its mother.
Robert Thorn: You saw my wife.

Omar Sharif really shone in Lawrence of Arabia! Your quote is a great you also remember his line, "Have you no fear, English?!"

And that other great thudering line:

Auda abu Tayi: I carry twenty-three great wounds, all got in battle. Seventy-five men have I killed with my own hands in battle. I scatter, I burn my enemies' tents. I take away their flocks and herds. The Turks pay me a golden treasure, yet I am poor! Because *I* am a river to my people!

Please! No Omens or Exorcists! They scare me to death. ANY movie, no matter how cheesy, that involves any form of satanic evil, is more than I can take. Now see... I have to have a lie down with a cold compress and some dark chocolate. Sigh....

Darling, fear not! No matter that Omen gives thrills and chills, what really matters is that it stars Gregory Peck and he is as wonderful and as magnificent as ever. That man had star charisma no matter what movie he was in. I'll never forget him in Arabesque, where he played a college professor, subjected to all kinds of adventure once Sophia Loren enters his life. The first time he sees her, do you recall? He does a double take and then says "Well hello, Hello, HELLO!"
It's priceless....HE's priceless!

Confession: I've never seen Arabesque. I shall remedy this situation asap.
