You know what they're missing?

"IT'S TOO BAD SHE WON'T LIVE! BUT THEN AGAIN, WHO DOES?"

To the reader: If you don't know what that's from, may that big invisible man in the sky that constantly watches you have mercy on your soul.
Zopwx2 06-26-2005 11:43 PM
Pretty standard list.

Nothing shocking or unexpected.

Althought going through the list it did conjure up great movie memories.
Dingo 06-26-2005 11:54 PM
I figured "Luke, i am your father" would be in thre. Guess i was wrong.
pen1300 06-27-2005 11:39 AM
WOW! Sunset Blvd. got at least two mentions. That surprised me, but Sunset Blvd is one good, creepy, enjoyable movie. Big Grin

I second why isn't "Luke, I am your father" on there? Oh well, I like number one (the top five were on the Today Show last week):

"Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." Best. Movie. Quote. I totally agree.

Later,

Accualy "Luke, I am your Father" was nominated but it seems they only wanted the "I am your Father" part I would have picked the whole quote but....it's their list. There was only 4 other Star Wars quotes but the only one to make it out of the 4 nominated ones was the "May the force be with you." one.

And you know I'm kind of surprised they didn't hit up the Matrix for a few quotes too....I mean "Woah....", "Dodge this.", "Welcome to the Real world.", "Mr. Wizard! Get me the hell out of here!", "I know kung fu.", "Guns. Lots of guns.", "Free your mind."....I could go on but you get the Idea. But if you look at the 400 list, there's a few quotes like the Rasing Arizona one that I was kind of surprised that they even made it....
Lady Tesser 06-27-2005 02:08 PM
I thought one of the more recognized lines in movie history was:

"It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."
- THE BLUES BROTHERS, 1980

It probably got nominated, though ( at least I hope).

Oh yeah, why isn't "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" on there???

He never actually said "Luke..." He said "Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father."

"He told me you killed him"

"No. I am your father!"

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! That's not true! that's impossible!"

[/geek]
Anyway, good list. I say "we're gonna need a bigger boat" at every opportune situation.

Ugh...Goddamn Titanic. I want to kick Leo off the ship when he's saying that.
Sharpshooter005 06-27-2005 07:40 PM
I liked how on Letterman, they went down the first two, then for number 3 put in "Kaplan has dandruff" from North by Northwest.
Hienrich Ele 06-27-2005 08:39 PM
What!? No "Well, you know what Jack Burton always says..." from "Big Trouble in Little China"!?

Kidding... Sort of...


Decent list. I know a lot of those quotes, but never from where they originated from. Pretty interesting.


....

On second thought, that Jack Burton thing should have been on that list... So Yeah...
StevieV019 06-28-2005 10:29 AM
Yeah...Im missing Jack Burton's quotes as well:

"This is gonna take crackerjack timing," is one of the greatest quotes ever...

As well as "Yeah...I kinda feel invincible."

Again, the Blade Runner quote among others from the movie should be there as well...
Croix 07-05-2005 08:27 PM
Ah man, they're missing the greatest quote from Plan 9 from Outer Space:

"Your stupid minds! Stupid! Stupid!!!

Yah that's like one of the biggest quotes ever.

I was thinkin an Indiana Jones quote would have made it in there...something like "Snakes...why'd it have to be snakes?"

*EDIT*
quote:
"It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."

Diverse Considerations 07-06-2005 08:57 PM
This list is missing the greatest line from easily the greatest movie of all time: Big Trouble In Little China.

"Son of a bitch must pay!" - Jack Burton (Kurt Russell)

The Snakes line was one of the 400 nominated as was "I am your father", "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope." and "Do, or do not. There is no try."

Sorry, but the 106 miles to Chicago line was not nominated, however "We're on a mission from God." was.

I hope Green_Bird doesn't mind I hijack her thread (where's ol' girl been at anyway? Somethin' so missed...) and I'd like to do this here rather than in the Times thread again since this has to do with the AFI anyway.

I'd hate to do this again, since I already did the 50 Ketel Drinker list a couple of days ago, but the AFI came out with their "AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Movies — 10th Anniversary Edition" and I'll share it here.
