    Gotta be "your only supposed to blow the bloody doors off".

    with "stop throwing those bloody spears at me" as a close second

    You sure he said that in Zulu? He was playing a toff in that film not your usual cockney.

    Anyway voted for the Get Carter quote, the Italian Job ones are too obvious however very very funny :)

    He did not say that at any point in the film Zulu...

    I rather like:

    "I'll always be there because I'm a skilled professional actor. Whether or not I've any talent is beside the point."

    "The best research for playing a drunk is being a British actor for 20 years."

    This quote I found interesting:

    "I prefer to remake flops. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was a remake of a flop, and The Quiet American is a remake of a flop."

    Dirty Rotten Scoundrels I didn't really like - I found it obvious and laboured. The Quiet American on the other hand is an absolutely oustanding film and Michael Caine is brilliant in it.

    Actual great film quotes from Michael Caine's scriptwriters? Hec, where to even start, the above quotes don't even scratch the surface ;)

    Roos quotes are better since they don't have to be in context.

    Something like "Pull my finger" is piss poor, not his words and outright ridicilous as a quote. Unless you know where it's from ofcourse.

    The best quote had to be from Goldmember "There are only two things I can't stand in this world: People who are intollerant of other peoples' cultures, and the Dutch"
