    "Nice house — I said, nice house!"

    The scene where Connery holds up the already-dead guy and then shoots him was a classic.
    The baseball bat scene was a little rough but what the hell.
  3. FWIW, there's a great new history of the actual Potemkin mutiny.
    I always liked the "I think I'll get a drink" last line from this one.

    Mr. Ness. I do not approve of your methods.

    Well, you're not from Chicago.

    "Part, of, a team."

    That scene would make for a great payoff piece in a pregame motivational video for a team with me-first players.

    What really made the movie for me was the clothing. It was authentic and looked damn good. You could wear any of those costumes to a club and pick up just about any chick you want. (As long as you have some good lines).

    Go on and live the charade, with your soft clothes and federal stooges.

    I believe the costume designer won an oscar. Just check it out. Everyone in the flick was dapper.

    Probably. And you're right, everything looked authentic in that film.

    Prosecutor: "What did you tell him (the judge)?"

    Ness: "I told him his name is in the ledger."

    The courtroom scene when the judge switched the juries and Capone's lawyer changes the not gulity plea was a delight to watch.

    I still have this movie on VCR tape, following "Harry and the Hendersons." The train station/baby stroller scene still give me goosebumps. Saving the baby and getting to the accountant without him being shot was excellent. Including Garcia shooting that gangster in the mouth at the station. "You got him?" "Yeah, I got him." "One...two..." (shot fired) "Three."
