Here are the top 10 movies that in my opinion are the most quoted movies of all time. Did any of your favorite movie quotes make my list? Did I miss any movies? Let me know what you think in the comments section below.
Edit: I forgot to say, that these are movies that have a lot of great quotes, rather than a selection of the best quotes in cinema history.
And here we go, starting with number 10:
10. Pirates of the Caribbean (aka all of Johnny Depp’s lines)
And remember to do all of these in a sexy-drunky type of voice.
“But why is the rum gone?!” – Jack Sparrow
“Me? I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It’s the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly… stupid.” – Jack Sparrow
“You are without a doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of.” – Elizabeth Swann
“But you have heard of me.” – Jack Sparrow
9. Billy Madison
This is just a fun movie, that I think is one of Adam Sandler’s best works.
“Oh back to school, back to school, to prove to dad that I’m not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don’t get in a fight.” – Billy Madison
“Shampoo is better. I go on first and clean the hair. Conditioner is better. I leave the hair silky and smooth. Oh, really, fool? Really” – Billy Madison
8. Wizard of Oz
Remember running around chanting “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my” after seeing this movie as a kid? I do.
“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” – Dorothy
“Lions and tigers and bears, oh my.” – Dorothy
“I’ll get you, my pretty. And your little dog too!” – Wicked Witch of the West
7. Austin Powers
I can remember hearing people say “one million dollars” in Dr. Evil’s voice all the time after this set of movies came out.
“Get in ma belly” – Fat Bastard
“ONE MILLION DOLLARS!” – Dr. Evil
“Mo-o-o-ole” – Austin Powers
“Oh, behave.” – Austin Powers
6. Lord of the Rings
I remember when these movies came out I would hiss “my precious” whenever someone tried to take something of mine. And I would always shout “you shall not pass” whenever I was in someone’s way…dorky – yes, hella fun – duh!
“My precioussss.” – Gollum
“One does not simply walk into Mordor.” – Boromir
“A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.” – Gandalf
5. Star Trek
This is a new show for me, but I knew all of these quotes by heart before I even began to watch it. That’s how popular this show is, or maybe that’s how dorky my friends are? I kid I kid. And even though this is a combination of shows and movies, I’m placing this here. Why? Because this is my blog silly and I want to. 🙂
“Beam me up Scotty.” – Captain Kirk
“Live long and prosper.” Spock
“I’m a doctor, not a ……” – Dr. McCoy
4. Star Wars
These quotes too I knew before even watching the first 3 movies. And I just love Yoda talk.
“Talk like this you do.” – Yoda-talk in general
“I love you” – Princess Leia, “I know.” – Han Solo
“Luke, I am your father” – Darth Vader (although this is actually a misquote)
“May the force be with you.” – Han Solo and a few other people
3. The Shining
If you’ve seen the Shining, then you know that after watching the movie you most likely spent 2 weeks annoying your friends by saying “red rum” in that creepy throat-destroying voice. No? Was it just me?
“Red rum.” – the creepy kid with the finger thing
“Here’s johnny!” – Jack
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” – Jack
2. Forrest Gump
And of course whenever someone ran for any reason, since this movies release, you’s hear “run Forrest (or Bobby, or Amy, or whoever), run!”
“Run Forrest run!” – Jenny
“My momma always said, ‘Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.'” Forrest Gump
That whole shrimp thing that Bubba says
1. Princess Bride
I’m just going to say from the start that I absolutely love this movie, and can quote it entirely, so I might be a little biased in giving this the number one spot. You know what, no, it deserves that spot since the ENTIRE movie is quite quotable. Go, try to prove me wrong, watch the movie and see if any line is not worthy of repetition.
“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die” – Inigo
“Inconceivable!” – Vizzini, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. ” – Inigo
“No more rhymes now, I mean it.” – Vizzini, “Anybody want a peanut? ” – Fezzik
“Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while. ” – Westley
And so many more wonderful lines
