Genghis Khan (1965)
Temujin, later Genghis Khan: Born a slave, I never was!

Bortei: [the Mongols have come to China] I think he will let you all become lazy and fat, so we'll never get out.
Temujin, later Genghis Khan: She is right. Every morning our men will train with their weapons!

Temujin, later Genghis Khan: I have thought of your lesson, mighty Emperor, and it is true; it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. Therefore, I allow you to light this last spectacle!

Temujin, later Genghis Khan: [on his death chair] Do not weep for me yet. There will be much time after I am dead.

Geen: [about the Caravan Road] The Shah of Khwarezm imposed a truce. All have sworn to it. All observe it. No warrior is permitted to carry arms here.
Geen: Good, then we can take our pick without fighting!
Shan: You do not understand, Temujin. A truce was signed!
Geen: I did not sign it, the slaves did not sign it.
Geen: But...!
Temujin, later Genghis Khan: [Interrupts] Will there be women among the slaves?
Geen: Yes, lord...
Temujin, later Genghis Khan: Good. My men have horses and weapons, but no women. How long do you think they will stay without women?
[At Shan]
Temujin, later Genghis Khan: How long will you?
[Shan smirks]

Temujin, later Genghis Khan: [addresses Jamuga's troops] You will now decide whether to join me, or die. I wish there to be no more fighting between the Mongols, so choose now.

Geen: It's about time you too, my Lord, had thoughts of sons.
Temujin, later Genghis Khan: The thoughts I've had in my mind are not for a holy man as you! Give me time.

Temujin, later Genghis Khan: No woman will be taken against her will.
Shan: But Lord, that's what women are for! And besides, the best have already been taken!
Temujin, later Genghis Khan: A wise man does not judge a horse by its saddle markings!

Temujin, later Genghis Khan: [in his death chair] Set me so that I can feel the East wind on my face.

Bortei: [about Jamuga] As long as this man lives, none of his tribe will join with you. They can't! You know their laws. And our laws too.
Temujin, later Genghis Khan: Killing him would be an act of mercy.
Bortei: We're not talking of mercy, but of common sense!


The Conqueror (1956)
Bortai: For me, there is no peace while you live, Mongol.
Temujin: You're beautiful in your wrath.

[His bride-to-be tries to escape]
Temujin: I stole you. I will keep you. Before the sun sets you will come willingly to my arms.

Temujin: She is a woman - much woman. Should her perfidy be less than that of other women?

Temujin: While I live, while my blood burns hot, your daughter is not safe in her tent.

[Surrounded by his enemies]
Temujin: Come and take me, mongrels - if you dare. While I have fingers to grasp a sword, and eyes to see your cowardly faces, your treacherous heads will not be safe on your shoulders. For I am Temujin, the Conqueror. No prison can hold me, no army defeat me.

Temujin: I feel this Tartar woman is for me, and my blood says, take her. There are moments for wisdom and moments when I listen to my blood; my blood says, take this Tartar woman.

Temujin: Dance for me, Tartar woman.

Temujin: We'll chase them like rats across the tundra.

Hunlun: She will bring woe to you and your people, my son! A woman made wife against her will can be a dangerous foe!
Temujin: For good or ill - she is my destiny.

Temujin: The tartar woman stays with me, Jamuga.


Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)
Genghis Khan, Billy the Kid: Bogus!


"The Simpsons: Marge vs. the Monorail (#4.12)" (1993)
[about the $3 million fined from Mr. Burns]
Lisa Simpson: Oh, what a boon it could be for our underfunded public schools.
[in Lisa's fantasy]
Miss Hoover: Children, it's time for your history lesson. Put on your virtual reality helmets.
[the children do]
Genghis Khan: Hmm, excellent... hello, Lisa! I'm Genghis Khan! You'll go where I go, defile what I defile, eat who I eat!
