Movie Night Baaaaa

The guess-my-line meme:
1. Pick one dozen movies that you have special feelings about.
2. Pick a few lines of dialogue.
3. As people guess the film, strike out that entry.
4. If possible, after the film is guessed, explain why that movie made the list.

I decided arbitrarily not to include any Star Trek, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, partly because everyone would get them immediately and partly because I couldn't decide which to choose.

1. From now on we are enemies, you and I. (xochiquetzl)
2. It won't be a home-cooked meal, you know? (sistermarysith)
3. The nicest thing about being happy is that you think you'll never be unhappy again. (watergal)
4. It costs extra to carve "shmuck" on a tombstone, but you would be worth the expense. (melinafandom)
5. Everyone lies...but not all the time. (boxer_ferret)
6. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. (sheafrotherdon)
7. This isn't my gun. I was never here.
8. In the end I distilled everything to one simple principle: win or die. (trexphile)
9. God, whose name I do not know, thank you for my life. I forgot how big... (timetiger)
10. Do you know how you got that dent in your top lip? Way back before you were born, I told you a secret. Then I put my finger there and said "Shhhhh!" (ribby)
11. You're the one who stopped sleeping with me! It'll be a year come April 20th. I remember the date because it was Hitler's birthday. (timetiger)
12. There's no Messiah in here! There's a mess, all right, but no Messiah! (mneme_forgets)

ETA: Am screening comments so that people who want to guess can guess untainted. *g* Shall mark off the ones already guessed correctly with the username of the person who guessed first!

ETA #2: Answers here.

And in unrelated entertainment news, October Project has uploaded a free download of an a cappella version of "Eyes of Mercy"! Voluntary donations will go to help tsunami victims.
