A recent thread inspired me to go back and watch True Grit (2010) again. Coen Brothers movies are always good for some amazing dialogue and True Grit definitely delivers. These aren't the best lines in cinematic history, but I think they're pretty underrated as far as movie quotes go. You probably won't find them on anyone's "best" list. Feel free to add your own. Underrated of course. So, frankly if you don't give a damn or think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship, save yourself the trouble. We've heard it before. Or if you think we'll need a bigger boat to carry this thread, thanks but no thanks for the advice. What are your favorite underrated movie quotes?

True Grit

"Bob, you're fired. For years I covered for you because I thought you were crazy, but now I know you're just mean"

--Good Morning Vietnam

"Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong. That is your oath. "

--Kingdom of Heaven

General Taylor : Dick, I've covered for you a lot of times cause I thought you were a little crazy. But you're not crazy, you're mean. And this is just radio.

Yep! I was going off memory, not the direct quote.

While it's not underrated, the lead up (and post elevator chuckle) is the best line...

"Well, I believe in the soul... the cork...the pursey... the small of a woman's back... the hangin' curveball... high fiber... good scotch... that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent overrated crap... I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a Constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days. Goodnight."

Have you seen Buster Scruggs? This wasn't really quotable (for me), since I had to look it up, but still:

"Uncertainty—that is appropriate for matters of this world. I believe certainty regarding that which we can see and touch, it is seldom justified, if ever. Down the ages from our remote past, what certainties survive? And yet we hurry to fashion new ones, wanting their comfort."

Here's one from a different movie that I think I can quote correctly:
"Who else would I be?" (in response to the instruction, "Be yourself.")

BUSTER SCRUGGS is the most underrated movie (collection of movie shorts) of all time.

Absolute gold from the Coen’s.....but definitely one of their lesser known films.

Want quotable lines.....the first vignettes with the “San Saba Songbird”......full of outstanding lines.

And James Franco and Steven Root in the 2nd one......Oh my goodness.

Great, great movie.

Everyone remembers Jack Nicholson's favorite line from "A few Good Men." My personal favorite is "Is there a question in our future?"
