Mine was "Everyone in Washington is going to want to be your best friend."
This one line said so much.
I thought the actor who played Thompson and Polaha were both great in this scene. I would live to hear your favorite......

    "To everyone within the
    range of my voice, you now have a
    choice to make. If you decide to support the notion
    of sacrifice enforced by the State,
    your game is up. Your world is in a
    downward spiral, and you will ride
    it down to destruction."

    "Well done!"

    It is a comment that Producers hear only too rarely. Since I saw Part 3, I have been consciously using it when the situation merits.

    All the lines in all the movies so that Rand's concepts were given maximum dramatic impact so people would explore further.

    Too many to tell this one!
    I love "you're penniless" - more for the reaction tan the line itself.
    I love the whole conversation between Akston and Dagny.
    I love the line which is, I think, different in the book :"I can't desert a battle which I think is mine to fight."
    too....many....choices!

    Polaha had a few good quotes to only choose one.

    The convo with him and Dagny at the power generator building and him telling her to say the words "I swear - by my life and my love of it
    - that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine” is one of my faves.

    The convo at the end where Dagny asked if it is the end, and he says "It is just the beginning" is another.

    "Tell me, would you hire your brother to work on your railroad?"
    "Oh, GOD, no!!!"
    Close second: the doctor's speech about bureaucrats telling him how to practice medicine. I work in healthcare and battle with that every day.

      I work in healthcare, too, and what the government doesn't control the insurance companies, who are hand in hand with the government, control. I have watched the middle class lose the ability to control their own health. It's a travesty

    I have so many favorites from the movie but here’s 3 category favorites.
    Family business: “God no!”
    Galt Galt-ness: “I didn’t ask to see you.”
    Galt Humor: When John is picking up Dagny from her plane crash, she asks him, “Where is your plane?” He just barely chuckles and answers, “My plane is on the runway.” Perfectly acted subtle humor implying, “Where else would it be? I’m not the one who crashed!”

    Poor old Francisco De; Anconia and Hank Reardon, were thrown under the bus; in ATSIII; because John Galt was so hot; I mean what woman would not be attracted to Galt, over Reardon, given the circumstances?

    "The End" was the best. I was gravely disappointed in Part 3. The casting for the government folks was good, but the guy who played Francisco was so old he could have played Francisco’s father. Dagny was too young. The two who grew up together somehow got split by generations or Francisco aged too fast and Dagny regressed to being a teenager. The Francisco in the movie should have been charged with child abuse. That was just part of the bad casting. The overall acting was not great and did not live up to Part 1. The story line did not do much either. I loved Part 1. Part 2 was lower quality. I do not recommend Part 3 to anyone. I see this as a great opportunity lost.

      As much as I understand there were many obstacles to making AS3, I just can't see why they cast someone so old for Francisco. He had to be at least 30 years too old for the part. It really was ridiculous

      One thing that's been hard for people who know the book is the casting of the older man for Frisco. Remember, in the movie it was only said that they were "very close" - that leaves the door open to a student/mentor relationship, for example. The people seeing the movie who haven't read the book don't know about their relationship.

      “So you think that money is the root of all evil?” said Francisco d’Anconia. “Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?.....“Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to be the tool by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of men. Blood, whips and guns–or dollars. Take your choice–there is no other–and your time is running out.”
