There's a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17.  "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness.  For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.  And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."  I been sayin' that shit for years.  And if you ever heard it, it meant your ass.  I never really questioned what it meant.  I thought it was just a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker 'fore you popped a cap in his ass.  But I saw some shit this mornin' made me think twice.  Now I'm thinkin', it could mean you're the evil man.  And I'm the righteous man.  And Mr. .45 here, he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness.  Or is could by you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish.  I'd like that. But that shit ain't the truth.  The truth is you're the weak.  And I'm the tyranny of evil men.  But I'm tryin'.  I'm tryin' real hard to be a shepherd.


Not necessariliy my fave but just the first one that sprang to mind. I guess that makes it the most memorable one for me. It is suprisingly mature for a Tarantino film.

it's not a monologue, but i love the exchanges between sam jackson and chris tucker in jackie brown, when ordell is trying to get beaumont into the trunk...

Gotta love the Dennis Hopper Sicillian/Moore speech in True Romance.

I'm also a big fan of Walken's speech in Pulp.

Not to mention Ving Rhames'.

Goddamnit, there all so good.

The best one, though, might be Tim Roth's Comode story in Dogs.

That whole scene with Hopper and Walken in True Romance is just amazing. I think it's the best thing Tarantino has ever written.

i think the best Tarantino dialouge is in pulp fiction when jules and vincent are driving with marvin in the back and they're talking about 'cops' then vincent accidently blows off marvin's head and all the shit after that.

plus all the scene's with 'The Wolf' are awesome.

Got to go with Walken in Pulp Fiction, partially because you can so tell he forgot his lines when blanks out after, "This watch..."

i couldn't agree more, that is one of the top 5 best scenes of all time.  the way hopper uses walken's own words against him is just bloody perfect.  it's the best reversal i've ever seen.  i would have loved to see tony scott's face while they were shooting it.  i would be having an orgazism on set, just witnessing the pure magic of these two actors saying the perfect lines.

So, even though it's directed by Tony Scott, it's still a QT flick?

no it's not a QT film but it's the best thing he ever wrote.  it's better then any other scene he's done.  we can get technical and snarky arguing the symantics, but in the end that scene would not have happened if tarantino didn't create it.

yeah tony scott does suck balls.  but that was his shinning moment.

I gotta say, I like Tony Scott. 'Spy Game' was awesome and the 'Man on Fire' trailer is pretty cool. Unlike any other trailer I've seen actually. It has a very strange, but appealing, flow to it.

i didnt know Man on Fire was Tony Scott....hmmm.....yeah, the trailer does look alright, though the premise looks like Denzel Washington just goes around killing people and not caring. so, IMO, it could go either way
