Top 100 U.S. Movie Quotes

Okay, so the American Film Institute put up this list of top 100 quotes from U.S. movies with film title and year of release. Check it out here.

As always happens with lists-of-all-time, they always manage to leave out the really good stuff. For example - take this line - my favorite - from Heathers:

"Fuck me gently with a chainsaw!"

But I guess that's not exactly tame enough for the AFI. Whatever. Schmucks.

A shout out to BYO for the link..

Yea, and what about Willy Wonka?

Willy Wonka: Good day sir.
Grandpa Joe: [snip]
Willy Wonka: I said good day.

He had a lot of other great lines. Ah well. :)

Ahh, glad to see one of my all time faves made the top 25:

"A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti."

They missed the slurping though...

I thought there should have been at least 10 lines from Pulp Fiction in there.

No Blues Brothers?

What about Big Wednesday -

Matt Johnson: You know, Mrs. Barlow, there's something I'd like straighten out.
Mrs. Barlow: What's that, Matt?
Matt Johnson: Well, I did a lot of things around here I'm kind of ashamed of. I tore up your lawn with my '40 Ford...
Mrs. Barlow: Many times.
Matt Johnson: Took my pants off in front of your friends...
Mrs. Barlow: Oh, yes.
Matt Johnson: And I even passed out in your closet, but I never, and I don't know who could have if I didn't, but I never, and I repeat never, ever pissed in your steam iron.

If they filmed it today, would the line have been something like:

"Frankly, madam, I don't give a fuck."

Damn!! My fave didn't make it! "That was sooo (NOT) fetch!" From Mean Girls.

For me it's David Lynch's Blue Velvet...

Frank (Dennis Hopper): What kinda beer do you like?
Jeffrey (Kyle McLaughlin): Heineken.
Frank: Heineken! Fuck that shit, Pabst Blue Ribbon!

Maybe it's all in the delivery...I don't know...
