Spaceballs-one of the desert scenes. 
darth Helmut is told to comb the desert  So he does-literataly with giant combs.
DH:Found anything?
Squad 1: Nothing sir,
DH: Did you find something?
Squad 2: Not a thing sir.
DH: How about you?
Squad 3 (the other two were using combs, Sqaud 3 had an afro pick)
Squad 3: WE AINT FOUND SH*T!

Still makes me laugh just thinking about it.

Mel Brooks knew his crude humour. Made me think of the town meeting in Blazing Saddles.

Reverend Johnson: "Order. Order. Goddammit, I said order!"
Howard Johnson: "Nietsche says, out of chaos comes order."
Olson Johnson: "Oh, blow it out your a$$ Howard."

Two spring to mind for me. The first is in Bruce Almighty when Jim Carey wigs out on live TV after learning he was passed over for promotion. He ends his live in the field report by looking in the camera, clenching his fist and saying, "Back to you, f*ckers!" I now find myself repeating that line when watching the news and they go to any reporter out in the field.

The second is from the crappy John Candy and Eugene Levy film, Armed and Dangerous. The guy briefing them and preparing them for a career in private security begins his speech with, "The world is a sh*thole, filled with sh*tty little sh*ts who are scared sh*tless."  I often repeat that line whenever confronted with the world's inherent crappiness.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

In Star Trek V, when dealing with a recalcitrant Klingon general, Spock says, "Damn you sir, you WILL try!"  First time I saw that, I thought, OK, he's finally gotten the hang of those colorful metaphors!

What I call Edward Norton's "F-word" speech in the film, as he cusses out jive-talkin' Afro-Americans, Asian store owners, Hindi cab drivers, Russian mafiosos in Brighton Beach, corrupt white cops, rich white ladies on Park Avenue, etc. I think the only reason he could get away with it, is because he is non-partial in his cussing, and he cusses out himself the most.

A memorable speech, and what made it more memorable, was that it was delivered by Edward Norton as a monologue, while he was standing in front of a mirror. And we have Oscar's failure to recognize Norton's acting and Spike Lee's directing.

I'd have to say my favorite is Ryan Dunn and his line "Son of a... F*ck you!", from Jackass Number 2, right after being hit with the Riot Control Gun. I laugh just thinking about it.

Blade Trinity

When Ryan Reynolds sees the vampire Rottweiler dogs come around the corner and the teeny little Pomeranian has huge Predator like jaws growling at him.

"F**k me!  F**k me sideways!

I remember that. BounceGiggle

Also, I believe "You c--k-jugglin' thunderc--t!" (or something like that) is also said, when Reynolds in chained up; quite interesting.

I like the South Park movie, just goes completely over the top but it is hilarious.

Oh, yeah.  BounceGiggle BounceGiggle BounceGiggle "Shut your f--king face unclef--ker!" Saddam's voice was awesome. "C'mon, Satan, let's f--k!" Oh, goodness...

Two teleprompter moments:

- In "Anchorman," when Will Ferrel nonchalantly says, "F--k you, San Diego!" without realizing it.

- In "Scary Movie 3" (or 4, but I'm pretty sure it was 3), when the janitor takes over the keyboard for the teleprompter   
  and starts typing stuff, including the n-word. Pretty funny. (But only in the right context, of course.)

The classic "Yippy kayay, mother f***er".

In "Hot Fuzz", when Angel is confronted by Reverend Shooter:
Shooter "Surely you're a man of peace seargent Angel"
Angel "I may not be a religious man Reverend, but I know right and I know wrong and I have the good grace to know which is which."
Shooter "OH F--K OFF GRASSHOPPER !"
No matter how many times I see it, it always makes me laugh.

"In Bruges" -- Colin Farrell is sitting next to Brendan Gleason in a bar, and Gleason promises that the day will be divided between culture and fun.  Farrell replies that he believes that the balance will "tip in favor of culture, like a huge (unprintable) retarded black girl jumping on a see-saw opposite a (string of profanity) dwarf" -- The line is funny and repulsive and unnecessarily crude, but fits perfectly into the flow of the storyline at that point.  The film is full of moments like these -- The entire film has some of the filthiest language I've ever heard in a movie, including "Glengarry Glen Ross", but it all makes perfect sense to the storyline.
If you get the DVD, watch the extra segment "F* * *ing Bruges!", in which they make fun of their own profane excesses.

I don't remember the exact line, but in Amadeus I believe it's the only cuss word in the movie.

Mozart says something to the effect ...

The instant I read your question, I immediately thought of Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet.  The profanity was constant, violent, and oddly horrible in its intensity.  I mention it because it truly disturbed me, while most profanity in films seems merely banal, or typical.  Hopper with that creepy nitrous mask saying, "Baby wants to f*ck!"  Ewww!  And juxtaposed with Isabella's timelessly gorgeous face, it was beyond strange.  (She reminds me of the bust of Nefertiti in Berlin, sort of a beauty beyond beauty.)  I rather think David out-Lynched himself with that one.

The only other instance I can think of where profanity takes on such a visceral power is in a book: (are we allowed to talk about those here?) Steven King's It.  The scene, (i'll try to write it tactfully) is when Beverly's stepfather says: "I wanted your c*nt, Beverly, I wanted your PLUMP C*NT!"  TOTALLY unexpected and thus all the more horrifying.

Interesting topic, thanks for posting.

A couple of my favs:

"Oh Lord. Do we have the strength to carry on this mighty task in one night? Or are we just jerking off?"
Blazing Saddles.
Not exactly SWEARING, but close enough and twice as funny.

In the "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie", MC Pee-Pants (Voiced my MC Chris), uses the f-word 3 times in about 8 seconds:"M.F. changed me again? That M.F., Satan is a M.F."

I have to say, the Crackhead Cobra in Fabulous Female Freedom Fighters is near the top of my list right now.

In "Cannonball Run", when discussing his fee, the doctor, asking for $2000, gets a counter-offer of $200, he starts to say the f-word, and transitions into "F-ortunately my practice allows a certain flexability. .

And of course, in "Hollywood Knights" (great movie BTW), the good old "F-You Newbomb" always makes me laugh. .
