Movie Quotes

LeMorse tagged me in honor of AFI's special tonight. I'm not going by most popular (ahem, I mean CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT). I'm going by the quotes that I most often repeat, or have stuck in my mind...at this moment. Please don't correct me if I get a few words wrong. This isn't a geek contest.

Runner Ups:
14. Witness You be careful out there among the English.
13. Dangerous Liasons It's beyond my control.
12. G.I. Jane Suck my @#$!
11. Airplane I like my coffee like I like my men. Black.

Top Ten:
10. Ghostbusters II
VENKMAN: I'll put him down for you. (taking the baby) You are way too short! And your belly-button sticks out! You're nothing but a burden to your poor mother!

9. Heathers
HEATHER CHANDLER: Blow it tonight girl and it's keggers with kids all next year.

8. The Two Mrs. Grenvilles
MRS. GRENVILLE: N.O.C.D. darling.

7. Silence of the Lambs
CLARICE: Quid pro quo, Doctor.

6. Thelma and Louise
LOUISE: We're not giving up, Thelma.

5. Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead
KENNY: The dishes are done!

4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
TALL KNIGHT: We are the Knights Who Say "Ni"!

3. Young Frankenstein
IGOR: Walk this way.

2. Empire Strikes Back
HAN SOLO: I know.

1. Out of Sight
KAREN: You wanted to tussle. We tussled.

Also, I'm constantly saying "The Eagle lands at midnight" but I can't remember which forty-year-old conspiracy movie that is from. I do know who the Eagle is.

There are many quotes I think are beautifully constructed and significant (i.e. "Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy night"). But these are the lines you would hear me using over and over again.

Two actors that deserve their own countdown lists: Bill Paxton and Bruce Campbell. Go to this comments section.

Okay, TAG YOU'RE ALL IT!!!!! Post in the comments section!!! You only have to do ten quotes!
