"And when I was in the delivery room, waking up from the ether, I asked the nurse whether it was a boy or a girl. She said it was a girl - and I turned my head to the side and cried. And then I said, I hope she grows up to be a pretty little fool. That's about the best a girl can hope for these days, to be a pretty little fool."

That is from The Great Gatsby.

I've got it! I've got it! The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true! Right?
Right. But there's been a change: they broke the chalice from the palace!
They *broke* the chalice from the palace?
And replaced it with a flagon.
A flagon...?
With the figure of a dragon.
Flagon with a dragon.
Right.
But did you put the pellet with the poison in the vessel with the pestle?
No! The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon! The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!
The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon; the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.
Just remember that.

Ah! The vessel with the pestle! I grew up with that! That's from The Court Jester! I've got to see that again!

Here's another one:

- Supposing that man had shot you! Is it really worth risking your life for ten dollars, two credit cards, a hairbrush and a lipstick?
- How did you know that?
- Know what?
- You just described the exact contents of my purse!
- ... A wild guess.

I'm just popping in to let you know that the site will undergo maintenance this weekend, sometime early Saturday morning EST(and I mean EARLY!) It should be fairly painless and quick, but if you come on and we are not showing up, please give it a few minutes and try again.

That is from Superman.

Next:

Just because you don't look like those girls in Poise magazine doesn't mean you're not beautiful in your own way.
I don't wanna be beautiful in my own way. I wanna look like these people!
Oh, those aren't people, honey. Those are models.

This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then - explode.

Same film, second quote:

I have a warship in deep orbit, Captain. We locked onto Serenity's pulse beacon the moment you hit atmo. I can speak a word and send a missile to that exact location inside of three minutes.

You do that, you'd best make peace with your dear and fluffy lord.

I had to cheat to find out that those quotes are from Serenity.

Here's one that might be a bit easier:

We're not here because we're free, we're here because we're not free.
