    My personal favorite famous line would have to be from Dirty Harry.

    "I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

    Along with "Go ahead make my day." from Sudden Impact.

    I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

    I went and listened to it and it is actually, "What we've got here is failure to communicate." So you're right - the "a" is not there, also it's got, not have.

    Caddyshack and Airplane are gold mines.

    I'll go with "it's in the hole!", and "Surely you can't be serious" respectively.

    Famous? Well, not like "Franklly my dear, I don't give a Damn", but a lot more fun.

    Watching carolina Go To HELL!
    This Oz's favorite movie line is one that was totally glossed over in the movie, but was prominent in the book. I have used it here in posts many times.

    What could have been, was.
    From the book, and movie Semi-Tough. It eliminates all the coulda's and shoulda's.
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell!

    Nominees for most famous:

    "Shaken...not stirred."

    "We'll always have Paris."

    "This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

    "All those moments will be lost in time...like tears in rain. Time to die."


    Nominees for most fun:

    "This...is my BOOMSTICK!"

    "Game over man...GAME OVER!"

    "Sally...this is my weak arm."


    Nominees for worst ever:

    "What does God need with a starship?"

    "KHAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNN!"

    Ok...worst ever starts and ends with Shatner.


    Someone mentioned the ad-libbed "you're gonna need a bigger boat" line. Some of the best lines and movie scenes end up being ad-libbed. That's almost another thread entirely, but my favorite ad-libbed scene was the one in Raiders of the Lost Ark when the swordsman is getting ready to fight Indy and Indy, looking too tired to deal with it, pulls out his gun and shoots him. Evidently, it was scripted for Indy to have a big mano-a-mano with the swordsman, and after struggling through a couple of takes, Harrison Ford pretended to pull out his gun and shoot the swordsman. Spielberg liked it so much, they reshot the scene that way.


    Edit: weezie beat me to both Bond and Ahnuld...thank goodness we came up with different lines!
    Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."

    I wanted to respond to this without looking at any of the other responses to make sure I gave unbiased answers.

    The first three that come to mind, for me, are:

    1. Say hello to my little friend

    2. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer

    3. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

    Actually, if we're picking nits, it's "What we got here is.....failure to communcate" (and yes, I left out the "i" in communicate)

    My dad came up with:

    1. Win one for the Gipper.
    2. Now there's another fine mess you've gotten me into.
    3. I'm getting too old for this s...
    4. He ain't heavy, he's my brother.
    5. Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings.
    6. Come up and see me sometime.
    7. Hi Ho Silver, away!

    And, in summary

    This is a nice but brief collection of many memorable quotes:

    Quotes


    Whereas this is similar, and gives you more of the scene from each movie:

    Scenes

    Yes, it is longer (>10 minutes) but well worth the time! (The time frame for the included movies is also broad enough to include some of the classics.)

    Can't believe it took to page 2 to get to this.

    I know people have some of the Bond usuals but my favorite would be

    "No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die"

    Also a fan of "Show me the money" over "You had me at hello"

    Is it also sad that almost all quotes are pre-2000, leading me to believe the movies of the last 12 years haven't been remarkable.

    The three that popped into my head right away (mine are kind of all over the place):

    "Have you had enough, or are you thirsty for more?" I think ranks right up there at Christmas time.

    "If you miss this shot, you're not just letting me down, you're letting your whole team down to."

    "Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner."
    "Duke is a once in a lifetime opportunity and something you don't pass up on." -Amile Jefferson

    I would say its more likely that they just arn't classics yet. Or the people who watched em are younger and will grow up saying them and that will make them popular.

    I'm sure this is part of it but I do think it speaks to our society a bit. IMDB released a list of their highest rated quotes from 2000-2009 here: http://www.imdb.com/list/aS4ZSMt5jtk/

    I know it is IMDB and not AFI but I often find my tastes closer to IMDB's top movies than AFI's so I think it is a quality source.

    That said, there are a few good quotes from the decade with ones such as "Are you not entertained" and many from the Batman series like "Why so serious", "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." "So we hunt him because he can take it..." are all great quotes but Gladiator and Batman account for many of the actual serious ones.

    But you look at the list and while I enjoyed movies like Old School and Anchorman and am part of the younger generation, I'm not sure I'm willing to put "We're going streaking" or "I love lamp" in the same ballpark as "The truth, you can't handle the truth."

    300 has some famous ones and of course Cast Away has "Wilsssoonn".

    Yes, but "I love scotch. Scotchy scotch scotch" is right up there.
