Whether you believe in God or not is besides this poll's point as you'll certainly believe that many memorable quotes don't mention the name of God in vain... and that's God's honest truth (Ruth).

So, which of these movie quotes containing the name "God" is your favorite?

That's the quote that inspired the poll, just saw the film yesterday, I was in awe... and the ending left me speechless. I wonder why the film didn't make it in AFI's Top 10 Sci-fi movies instead of the dreadful Thing From Another World

Can I just keep Hulk's quote or it doesn't work out of context?

ElMo, a few hours ago, I wrote a whole long paragraph, and then another, about how much I like this poll, how your polls should get a unique brandname in the tradition of "a Spike Lee Joint," low, how your polls always have so many good choices that it almost arouses anxiety to choose just one, and how I love "and that's the truth (Ruth)." : ) 

...And then my cable went out, had no internet access, and, when I tried to refresh the page, I lost the whole ramble. Now I'm too tired to rewrite it but, suffice it to say, that you're a poll god and Thank God, you make polls. :)

These things with Internet always happen... if I were a God, I wouldn't allow them!
And thanks for all these kind words, nah, i'm not a poll God...

Semi-God maybe... :)

Great Poll. Did you have a hard time choosing between the one you used and the other God quote in Patton? The one where the reporter asked him about the bible next to his bed.

Thanks for the compliment. Actually no, because I eliminated every quote with the expression "Goddamn", except in PLANT OF THE APES where it's clearly meant in the literal way "GOD DAMN".

But your remark made me check the PATTON's quotes section and I think I found better quotes, "God help me" is rather trivial compared to the other mentions of God in Patton's speeches.

ACT_1,

This is a great quote from one of my all-time favorite television episodes. Unfortunately, it does not meet the criteria for this poll suggestion.
So, which of these movie quotes containing the name "God" is your favorite?
