    AFI List of Top 100 Quotes From U.S. Films


    This makes me want to go out and rent movies! [heh, kind of the idea eh?]

    I would have not included #42 and #8 would not be nearly so high on the list.

    May the force be with you deserves its palce in eht op 10, it is certainly one fot he most used and widely known film quotes. And what strikes me about these kind of lists, is everyone thinks new films have to suck, and therefor think they dont deserve a place on the list. the first movie from the 90's or later to appear on the list is only number 21. And half those old movie quiotes ive not heard before.

    Agreed, but people will always disagree with these sort of things. I would have hoped for a few more from Airplane ('stop sniffing glue') or some Mel Brooks movies ('a very big mute'). Even though "Plastics" is more of a joke than a quote, how can they possibly be in order...?

    And there's two from Jerry McGuire, which I turned off in the first 20 minutes. I smell a Scientologist plot!

    The two Jerry Maguire quotes were so made fun of and have been so often re-used that it makes sense they are on there. I'm disappointed at the lack of quotes from newer movies. Personally, I'd have liked to have seen the prayer from Boondock Saints on there. Just for something a little different from all these classical film folks.

    "You want the truth?? You can't handle the truth!!"

    Somehow whenever telling the truth comes up in conversation, so does this quote. :)

    I was rather unimpressed with that list - I've never heard of most of those. In my opinion, I think that they should be able to stand alone to some extent without too much explanation.

    After reading that list something hit me.

    Hollywood needs better scriptwriters.

    Here are a few that will be in the top 100 in 20 years when all the dinosaurs who wrote that last list have retired:

    "...and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengence upon the!" - Pulp Fiction

    "What ain't no country I ever heard of! They speak English in What?" - Pulp Fiction

    "Where does he get all those wonderful toys?" - Batman

    "I see your Schwarts is as big as mine" - Spaceballs

    "Gosh!" - Napoleon Dynamite

    "The first rule of Fight Club is - you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is - you DO NOT talk about Fight Club." - Fight Club

    "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." - The Usual Suspects

    "There is no spoon." - The Matrix

    The quotable patella

    I was shocked, SHOCKED!, not to see "No, I am your father" on that list. I didn't expect it to be #1 or anything like that (I agree with AFI's choice for #1) but come on, who hasn't heard Vader's impassioned speech to his son?

    I also expected to see "There is no spoon" on the list (at about #95 or later). The Matrix may not have been the most popular of movies but it sure is quote-worthy.

    My favorite is when that winy guy in Aliens says "In case you haven't been paying attention, we just got our asses kicked" I love that line and it works so well in everyday life.

    "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father. Prepare to die!" ?

    GAME OVER MAN! GAME OVER!

    That should so be on the list. Also I agree with "Luke, I am your father." as well as the followup "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

    Despite the fact that Army of Darkness is the most quoteable movie of all time, there isn't a single quote from that. And yes, at least one Space Marine quote should've been there. Plus, they're missing this classic:

    "Quickly Robin, the Bat-Shark Repellent Spray!" Batman (1966)

    the whole thing could've been saved by one quote, just one quote, even if it had appeared at #100

    "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all outta bubble gum."
