Top 10 Movies: Most Quotable Films

by at . Comments

A lot of our modern popular saying and ideas come from movies.  We are a movie saturated society and it shows in everything we do.  Some films are more memorable than others and have a longer shelf life when it comes to repeating key lines.

We thought we'd make up a list of the top 10 most quotable movies of all time.  It was an extensive list and extremely difficult to narrow down.  We could only pick 10, so we did it based on number of memorable quotes and impact of those quotes.

What movies make your list?

Cher: Oh look, Josh is dancing with Tai, he never dances.
Christian: I can see why. 
Cher: Old people can be so sweet!

Evan: You changed your name to McLovin?
Seth: It doesn't have a first name, it just says McLovin!
Evan: The guys either going think 'here's another guy with a fake ID', or here's McLovin, 25 year old Hawaiian organ donor.
Fogell: I am McLovin. 
Seth: I just wanna go to the rooftops and scream, "I love my best friend, Evan."

Veronica Corningstone: Oh, Ron, there are literally thousands of men that I should be with instead, but I am 72 percent sure that I love you. 
Ron Burgundy: I'm in a glass case of emotion.
Ron Burgundy: [after jumping into the grizzly bear pit at the San Diego Zoo] I immediately regret this decision.

Bob Slydell: Don't... don't care?
Peter Gibbons: It's a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my ass off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don't see another dime. So where's the motivation? And here's another thing, I have eight different bosses right now.
Bob Porter: Eight?
Peter Gibbons: Eight, Bob. So that means when I make a mistake, I have eight different people coming by to tell me about it. That's my only real motivation is not to be hassled, that, and the fear of losing my job. But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired. 
Samir: You know what I would do if I had a million dollars? I would invest half of it in glorious mutual funds and take the other half over to my friend Asadulah who works in securities and-

[printer starts beeping]
Michael Bolton: "PC Load Letter" !? What the f**k does that mean? 
Bob Slydell: [at board meeting] I'd like to move us right to Peter Gibbons. We had a chance to meet this young man, and boy that's just a straight shooter with upper management written all over him. 
Peter Gibbons: What am I gonna do with 40 subscriptions to Vibe?

The Dude: Walter...
Donny: What?
Walter Sobchak: Were you listening to The Dude's story?

The Dude: (interrupting) Walter, Walter, what's the point, man?
Walter Sobchak: There's no reason - here's my point, dude, there's no f**king reason why these two...
Donny: Yeah, Walter, what's your point? 
Bunny Lebowski: Blow on them.
The Dude: You want me to blow on your toes?
