"You wanna live forever?"

I thought it was from Starship Troopers. (1997)

Jean Rasczak: Come on you apes. You want to live forever?

Just realized, however, watching Robocop (1987) on Star Movies, where this line originally comes from.

Emil: Smoke?
Dougy: Nah. You know those things'll kill you.
Emil: Yeah. You wanna live forever?

Obviously a running gag in some (?which) Paul Verhoeven movies.


Yes it's Saturday night in Manila and E@L is in his room watching televison and blogging. Has the world gone insane?

Or is E@L's toothache back? Did it ever go away? Well, what can you expect from an $18 Dentist?

also from "Highlander"-- in fact, Queen did the soundtrack and titled one of the songs that. Also, I think the original Conan movie also had that line.

It's a popular cinematic sentiment, I guess.

Paul Verhoeven didn't direct Highlander, that was Russel Mulcahy, but maybe you are right.

Who wants to live forever? Only the people who don't deserve to.
