Top Ten Most Iconic Movie Quotes of the 21st Century"It's alive!"
"Here's looking at you, kid."
"Well, nobody's perfect."
"Shaken, not stirred."
"I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse."
"I am your father!"
"Run, Forrest, Run!"
The 20th century left a huge legacy of movie quotes that went down in history and became an essential part of worldwide culture. Even kids who have never even heard of the movies, let alone seen them, know these quotes, often from parodies in cartoons, often from other people's use in everyday life. Surely, the 21st century will have such lines as well, especially since it has the internet, which was not present throughout most of the 20th century and will probably cause quotes to gain a legendary status much faster. Some quotes already do have a certain use in everyday language, and there sure will be more to come.
