The Top Ten

Why so serious? - The Dark Knight
Luke, I am your father... So what? That one is just a stupid quotes.
I think joker's "why so serious" is far more brilliant, and deserves to be number one. Let's vote this!
Best move ever, I loved when ever he told his storys about his father and ho dh fkd
Just chilling. I would say luke I am your father but that only applies to people who saw it in 1980 and had no idea... now it's kind of embedded in pop culture. still, this is a great line
[Newest]Heath ledger, heath ledger, heath ledger, heath LEDGER

2Luke, I am your father - Star Wars
This quote is just like a piece of art. It is magnificent. It is classic. It is one of those quotes where you just want to say it to someone whose name is Luke because it is just so funny.
Yuck... Twilight...
Definitely the most famous line
that is the sentence that twisted the whole
star wars series
[Newest]This quote does not exist! The real quote is "No, I am your father."

3You'll always remember this as the day that you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow - Pirates of the Caribbean
he always looks so funny when he say this.. I love it


Ever since 2003 everyone has mock the police for almost arresting them.


Just when he's finished that quote he does one of his inventive escape attempts.
[Newest]AMEN. They changed the pirate stereotype because of Captain Jack

4Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn. - Gone With the Wind
everyones know it and some haven't even seen the movie
So totally final. He had finally had enough of Scarlet & was making it very clear. Love it. But watch out people who to quiz nights. That little question re the last line spoken in this movie? This isn't it.
Awesome way to show that you don't care for someone who doesn't care even if you're dead or alive.
[Newest]I loved it when Rhett finally told Scarlet that he'd had enough!

And, of course, her classic comeback: "Well, I'll think about this tomorrow" :-)

5Say 'hello' to my little friend - Scarface
If you haven't watched scarface, I only have one question: how can you live with yourself?
Everyone says it even though many of them don't even know where its from
It's always so fun to say with an Al Pacino accent.


6Life is like a box of chocolates- Forest Gump
Fantastic film, I love Tom Hanks Movie and Forrest Gumps the most. I will keep the movie for my children.
yeah you just never know what you're gonna get.


This should be number 1. It actually has meaning and it is said by the greatest man ever in the greatest movie ever. End of story.
[Newest]That's what mamma always said.

7I'll be back. - The Terminatior
BEST QUOTE EVER... When said in Austrian accent
Yeah your right we need the classics
I'm not sure people understand what famous means because there are a lot of people who've never even seen the second dark knight- myself included- and I've never heard of 'why so serious? ' Conversely terminator has a good 30+ years (I don't care to do the math atm) on the dark knight movies so every generation knows about 'I'll be back' including the people who haven't even seen terminator (poor saps) just because it's been floating around for so long. Not to meantion that line has been recycled in nearly every single Arnold Schwarzenegger movie since then. Plus there are recent examples as in the second expendables movie that came out just last year. "Famous! " Not popular.

8I'll make him an offer he can't refuse - The Godfather
How the hell is this not on the top?
What is wrong with you people? This should be on top. And where's "Feeling lucky, punk? " and "You talking to me? "
Not as good as the one from Gladiator but that's not here so il have to settle for this
[Newest]This should definitely be number one!

9This is Sparta! - 300
its more like

"THIS IS SPARTA!!!!!!!!"


Excuse me, but this should be in the Top 10. It's ' EPIC! THIS IS SPARTA!


Gerard Butler is perfect King Leonidas ever. He shout "THIS IS SPARTA! " bravely and powerful!
[Newest]The best quote from one of the best films!

10The name's Bond, James Bond.
Super iconic, even more than "Luke I am your father! "
Yes... Top ten, for sure!
This is the one quote everyone knows wether theyve watched the film or not.

The Contenders

11Heeere's Johnny! - The Shining
Come on... Really? This deserves to be way up there... Twilight doesn't even deserve to be mentioned in the company of these movies.
This is number 1. I wonder if Jack can still do that voice like he is today. He's 72. Didn't know that. His birthday was yesterday (April 22nd). Oh, yeah. I forgot... Almost.
Here's Johnny!
(They used this from something from another T.V. show... )
I almost voted for "Why so serious" but I saw this at number 9. This deserves at least the top 5, if not higher.
[Newest]This wasn't even on the script. Jack Nicholson is a great actor and this proves it.

12I love the smell of napalm in the morning - Apocalypse Now
A classic line... Should be in the top ten.

It seems like this forum is weighted with younger people, voting for newer movies.

Guess us old fogies better step up and vote for our times!

This far down below?
Why the hell is this number thirteen?

Pure, deep and beautiful sentence

20You're gonna need a bigger boat - Jaws
I love this quote! It's better than the actual death of the shark. The only problem is that the effect is ruined when he says, "We're gonna need a bigger boat, right? "
