The Top Ten

Why so serious? - The Dark Knight
Best move ever, I loved when ever he told his storys about his father and ho dh fkd
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!
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

2Luke, I am your father - Star Wars
Yuck... Twilight...
Definitely the most famous line

star wars series

More comments about Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn. - Gone With the Wind

7I'll be back. - The Terminatior
BEST QUOTE EVER... When said in Austrian accent
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.

8Say 'hello' to my little friend - Scarface
If you haven't watched scarface, I only have one question: how can you live with yourself?
No, more like...
"Say ello tuh muh lil friend! "
Everyone says it even though many of them don't even know where its from
More comments about Say 'hello' to my little friend - Scarface

9Heeere'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.
