A cappella movie lines

I just finished watching "Zulu", one of my favorite movies from my youth. It's still a great film. A young Michael Caine along with many fine British character actors based on a true story.

And there was a great vocal harmony movie line. Anybody know of any others?

The Zulus greatly outnumber the British soldiers and are chanting before their final charge.

Lieutenant John Chard: Do you think the Welsh can do better than that, Owen?

Pte. Owen: Well, they've got a very good bass section, mind, but no top tenors, that's for sure.

Not from a movie, but one of my favorite harmony related quotes is this one:

The question "Who ought to be boss" is like asking "Who ought to be tenor in the quartet?" Obviously, the man who can sing tenor.
- Henry Ford
