I'm disappointed...

...that Dirty Harry's famous quote from Sudden Impact--

"Go ahead, make my day!"

--didn't make the Top 5 on the list. That was truly a memorable quote, to say the least.

I, too, haven't yet looked at the list (thanks for the link). A few that come to mind off the top of my head, though...

Citizen Kane's "Rosebud"

King Kong's "It was beauty killed the beast"

Heston's famous quote from Soylent Green (don't want to spoil for the two people on this board who haven't seen it )

Heston (again!?) from Planet of the Apes - either the "Get you hands off me..." line or the revelation on the beach (again, don't want to spoil).

The Graduate's "Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me" line.

Plus any of several good ones from Casablanca.

I love that line in The Adventures of Robin Hood with Errol Flynn.

Prince John: "You speak treason."

Robin: "Fluently!"

I don't think it made the nomination list.

Star Wars has 4 noms and none of them are from ROTJ: And they are spoken by Han, Leia, Vader and Yoda.

... and no, Han's "Who are you calling scruffing looking?" isn't on the list.




Edit to add: This made the list of 400 and hope its in the top 100:

"I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum." - Nada (Roddy Piper), They Live

I don't have time to sift through the 400 quotes, but no top 5 would be complete without a James Bond quote.

Either "Bond, James Bond" or "Shaken, not Stirred"

Are those the official top 5 in the first post, or guessses?

Some noteworthy ones that haven't been mentioned yet:

"I'll be back"
"My mama always said; 'Life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.'"
"You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Well, who the hell else are you talkin' to? You talkin' to me? Well, I'm the only one here. Who the f--k do you think you're talkin' to?"
"Hasta la vista, baby."

My vote for number 1:

"You don't understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it."

I just got done watching The Untouchables for the first time and am a bit surprised that the below quote did not even make into the Top 400.

Malone: You wanna know how you do it? Here's how, they pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That's the Chicago way, and that's how you get Capone! Now do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that?

Maybe I am just a bit biased being from Chicago.

I gotta go with

"Nay son, never. The blood stays on the blade. One day you'll understand."

One of the greatest lines ever! This is the type of line that I repeated every 10 seconds for about 3 days straight once! I can't say that about any other of these lines

The list is in alphabetical order by movie title right now, so it still might be in the Top 5 when they annouce the Top 100. These are just the nominees.

I'm disapointed "They're coming to get you, Barbara" wasn't in there, though. You'd think they could have found a way to squeeze that one in somewhere.

Can't believe "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die" is not on the list.

AFI seems to have a thing for Wizard of Oz so I'm guessing "we're not in kansas anymore" or "there's no place like home" tops the list. One of the quotes from Casablanca will come in second or third though I was disappointed that "I'm shocked, shocked to find gambling going on in this establishment" was not one of the nominees.

Big Dave, I'm with you on The Untouchables quote but I have a Chicago bias as well. I'm hoping "you're gonna need a bigger boat" makes it into the top 5.

I wish this was on the list:
"I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that."

Unable to view list, will have to try later, but one of my faves that I hope is there:

"You like apples? I got her phone number. How do you like dem apples."

"here's looking at you, kid."

"Louis, i think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

"forget it, jake. it's chinatown."

+"Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident!"
-"Brick, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should find yourself a safehouse or a relative close by. Lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder."

oh, and we can't forget:
"i'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse."
