What would a good Eddie Murphy movie be without producing a slew of memorable quotes? Tower Heist is no different. The film debuted November 4 and it came “this” close to winning the box office with critics hailing the return of Murphy at his best.
Tower Heist stars Murphy as Slide, Ben Stiller as Josh Kovacs, the general manager of a luxury apartment building in New York City, and Michael Pena as Rick Malloy -- the new bellhop -- while Casey Affleck goes against type in his performance as Charlie and Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe is Odessa the maid.
Be sure to check out the film and don’t miss all of our Tower Heist quotes.

Charlie: We're not criminals. We don't know how to steal...

Slide: How come you bailed me out? Man, I don't even know your name!
Josh: You don't remember Mrs. Schaltzberg? We used to get dropped at her house every day for daycare! Heavy-set German woman, short goatee.

Josh: If you get shot in the face, it's over.
