Against the Ropes
In 1977's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss), after being mentally 'implanted' by a message in the form of a mysterious 'shape' (from an alien encounter), attempted to sculpture said 'shape' out of a pile of mashed potatoes at the dinner table.

"I guess you've noticed something a little strange with Dad."
"It's better than Goofy Golf!"
"Hey, you know what's playing tonight? Pinocchio!"

While investigating the carnage at the Two Pines Wedding Chapel massacre, Texas Ranger Earl McGraw (Michael Parks) might be guilty of somewhat understating the obvious with the line, "It would appear someone objected to this union and wasn't able to hold their peace."

There was a scene in 1976's "The Outlaw Josey Wales" where Josey (Clint Eastwood) and Lone Waite (Chief Dan George) were discussing the absence of Little Moonlight (Geraldine Keams), the Indian girl who rode with them and helped them escape the shoot-out in town. When Josey commented, "When I get to likin' someone, they ain't around long.", what was Lone's semi-sarcastic yet fairly truthful reply?
"I'm glad you stopped me when you did. I might have killed her."
"I notice when you get to dislikin' someone, they ain't around for long neither."
"Not a hard man to track. Leaves dead men wherever he goes."
"They say you're a hard put and desperate man, Josey Wales."
After he shot a would-be rapist (Marjoe Gortner), Sgt. Lew Slade (George Kennedy) delivered this classic (although extremely cheesy) gem of an understatement to Rosa Amici (played by a very young pre-"Dallas" Victoria Principal): "C'mon Rosie, c'mon. Settle down. Earthquakes bring out the worst in some guys, that's all." Which disaster film did this beauty come from?
