Learn the best "Inglourious Basterds" quotes, and soon you'll be able to make smart remarks that are funny and memorable. "Inglourious Basterds" is a 2009 movie that was billed as adventure, drama, war film. It should probably also be called a comedy because much of the dialogue is humorous. Quentin Tarantino wrote and directed this movie that stars Brad Pitt as American Lt. Aldo Raine, Melanie Laurent as Shosanna, Christoph Waltz as Nazi Colonel Hans Landa, Diane Kruger as Bridget von Hammersmark, and Michael Fassbender as Lt. Archie Hicox. This look at Nazi-occupied France during World War II is told through the eyes of a group of Jewish-Americans who invade the country scalping and killing Nazis.

  1. "'Oooh, that's a bingo! Is that the way you say it? That's a bingo?' Colonel Hans Landa says. Lt. Aldo Raine says, 'You just say bingo.' Then Colonel Landa says, 'Bingo! How fun! But I digress. Where were we?'" This comical exchange is a great example of one of the lighter moments in the movie.
  2. "'Tell me, Aldo, if I were sitting where you're sitting, would you show me mercy?' Colonel Landa says. Lt. Raine then replies, 'Nope.' 'What's that English saying about shoes and feet?' Landa asks to which Raine says, 'Looks like the shoe's on the other foot. Yeah, I was just thinking that.'" Again, the banter showcases the rivalry between these characters.
  3. "You know, Lieutenant, you're getting pretty good at that," says Sgt. Donny Donowitz. Lt. Also Raine replies, "You know how you get to Cargenie Hall, don't ya? Practice." Lt. Also Raine is carving a swastika into the forehead of Private Butz after he's killed him. This light-hearted remark is a signature line of Tarantino's that shows his dark humor throughout "Inglourious Basterds."
  4. "Every German we meet wearing a Nazi uniform… they're gonna die." These immortal words tell the story of "Inglourious Basterds." They're spoken by Lt. Aldo Raine as a command to the Basterds and a warning to the Nazis.
  5. "Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz? Lt. Aldo Raine. These are the Basterds. Ever heard of us? We just wanted to say we're big fan of your work. When it comes to killing Nazis." Lt. Aldo Raine says while conversing with Sgt. Stiglitz, a Nazi killer, before the Basterds recruit him.
