I thought it'd be fun to compile quotes we think should have made the list.
- "I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days." --Bull Durham
- "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." --Wizard of Oz
- Why nothing from Star Wars? (I mean, back then, Lucas actually put quotable dialogue in his movies!) What about, "I find your lack of faith... disturbing." or "Use the Force, Luke!", or even "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...", if the criteria is "quotes that have become part of our culture".
- And they didn't use the 2001 quote I would have used. I would have used "My God... it's full of stars!"
A few that are not so well known that I think they should have made the list, but that are favorite quotes of mine all the same:
"Of course he has a knife, he always has a knife, we all have knives! It's 1183 and we're barbarians!" -- Lion in Winter
"Who wants to go down the creepy tunnel inside the tomb first?" --National Treasure
"Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?" --Star Wars
More as I think of 'em!
