  1. Jim says:

    These are great. There are so many good lines that I am sure we overlooked but each of these are definitely memorable.

  2. Heather says:

    I completely forgot: “It’s too early in the day for killing Princes.”

    One of my favorites!

  3. moviejunkie says:

    Or absolutely “It’s Not a TUmor” from Kindergarten Cop. I still quote that movie far too much for it to be healthy.

  4. Jess says:

    I love this list. While it’s obvious you have an affinity for several movies (Fight Club, Adam Sandler’s best), this is still a pretty amazing list with some classics peppered among fan fav-type classics.

  5. Heather says:

    Thank you very much Jess. I try to keep a balance between personal, classics, and what people actually like. I don’t want to be AFI here. Some of what people actually adore are dick and fart jokes, and some the epic romances like Gone With The Wind or Casablanca. I happen to enjoy both. ;)

  6. Univarn says:

    Awesome list. The only single line quote I can think of off the top of my head that would sneak in are from Cool Hand Luke: Either the failure to communicate or natural born world shaker lines :) .

    Granted I’d probably never think to include Clueless ha, but it was a film that represented an era far too well…

  7. Heather says:

    Thanks Univarn!

    I went on my Paul Newman tangent with The Sting and Butch Cassidy and then never pursued further. Cool Hand Luke is a fantastic movie with some epic lines.

    Well I’m glad Clueless gave you a chuckle. I know I have some pretty oddball additions in here, but I had to include some of my personal taste or it would just be another boring list. :)

  8. me says:

    I can name about fifty lines from Animal House….first one off the top of my head is….”I’m a zit!!” and from My Cousin Vinnie….”what’s a yute?” Still a fabulous list Heather!! Great job!!!

  9. Heather says:

    Ahhhhhhh, I think the scene from My Cousin Vinny where Marisa Tomei goes on the tangent about the deer is one of the best ever too!

    Thanks Me!

  10. Heather, if I haven’t said this lately, you rock.

    I LOVE that you created such a unique and diverse list, not just some rehashing of AFI’s top picks. Three cheers for your inclusion of that monologue from “Clueless” — it’s always been one of my favorites.

    I would include as well virtually any line from “Heathers” — the only teen comedy anyone needs to watch aside from John Hughes’ work — and Peter Gibbons’ iconic line from “Office Space”: “It’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care.”

    Other choices: “I’m okay with being unimpressive; I sleep better” (“Garden State”), “Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’” (“Shawshank Redemption”), and “We’ve got armadillos in our trousers. It’s really quite frightening” (“This Is Spinal Tap”).

    You forgot:

    “you got a purty mouth”-deliverance
    “The names Bond…James Bond” all Bond movies
    “No one puts Baby in the corner” Dirty Dancing
    “Ferris Bueller youre my hero”
    “Large Marge sent me” Pee-wees big adventure
    “Shhh…for some moments in life there are no words” Willy Wonka
    “People on ludes should not drive” Fast Times at Ridgemont High

    I could go on and on, but thats the thing about only having 100, it sounds like a big list, and must take forever to compile, but with ALL the possabilities out there you did a great job Heather!!

  12. Heather says:

    Thank you Karl!

    Your additions RULE.

    Since I’ve finished I’ve kicked myself plenty for those that I’ve missed. It’s a very specific thing to look into though.


  13. Karl says:

    The other day I thought Tom Cruise died because there seemed to be a day dedicated to nothing but his movies, I passed on Days of Thunder and opted for Mission Impossible 3 instead, but shortly after that was finished I again found myself watching Top Gun and that got me thinking of your list again and some more missing quotes. Most noteworthy: “Talk to me Goose” “Take me home now or lose me forever” and of course “Negative ghost-rider the pattern is full”

  14. Heather says:

    You’ll be flying a plane full of rubber dog shit out of hong kong!

    Maverick? Did your parents hate you or something?

    That’s right! Ice… man. I am dangerous.

    You can be my wingman any time.

    Love Top Gun for all it’s utter cheese. I saw that one in the theatre.

  15. Kicking off 2010′s mma events is the brilliant UFC 108. It’s bound going to be a great event with the kickoff being Evans vs Silva going head to head. You can watch ufc 108 free for FREE in full HD without paying that grotty $55.95 PPV cost.

  16. Heather says:

    Forgot about this one from Heathers:

    “I was impressed to see that she made proper use of the word ‘myriad’ in her suicide note.”

  17. PUKHRAJ JANGID says:

    aapki iss list main bahut hi kam prayas kirya gaya hain

  18. Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it’s wonderful to be aware that someone else also mentioned that as I had trouble finding the exact same info elsewhere. This was the first spot that told me the answer. Thanks.

    One that should be in is from The Dark Knight:
    “The night is darkest just before the dawn.” (Harvey Dent)

  24. TexasJohn says:

    My friends and I have too much of “Tombstone” memorized.

    Wyatt Earp to Ike Clanton: “You die first, get it? Your friends might get me in a rush, but not before I make your head into a canoe, you understand me?”

    Doc Holliday: “I’m your huckleberry…”

    Johnny Tyler: “I swear, it’s like I’m playin’ cards with my brother’s kids or somethin’. You nerve-wrackin’ sons-a-bitches.”

    Doc Holliday: [after killing Johnny Ringo] It would appear that the strain was more than he could bear.

    And one of my favorite exchanges…
    Turkey Creek Jack Johnson: Why you doin’ this, Doc?
    Doc Holliday: Because Wyatt Earp is my friend.
    Turkey Creek Jack Johnson: Friend? Hell, I got lots of friends.
    Doc Holliday: …I don’t.

    This movie is a gold mine. :)
