100 Years, 100 Movie Quotes

So AFI, the arbiter of all film worthyness has decided to rank movie quotes. This being a film quote house, I decided I'd watch and see how many of my favorites made the list....

The list of all 400 nominees is here. The final list will be released at 11pm EDT.

So far, not many, and one of my favorites, the "Life is a Banquet" line from Auntie Mame is in the 90s. Geez. Leo and Kate (in a movie I'm proud to say I have never seen....) were 100.

Abbott and Costello's Who's On First routine is number 91.

Somehow I'm guessing this is gonna be a long damn show....

What are your favorite movie quotes?

Who's on first is 91?

That's just wrong

Auntie Mame is one of my favorite movies....very funny. Bite your tounge. It has a lot of funny lines. YOu really need to watch it before saying a word. Rosiland Russell rocks...

Most of my favorite movie quotes are on the quotes section of my sidebar on my blog. Nothing worth the top 100 :-)

One of my fav's..."I'm a safety girl!" Pretty Woman
