100 Most Memorable Movie Quotes

AFI will air one of its annual list specials in the summer--this year, the theme is the 100 Most Memorable Movie Quotes. As I am sure that the AFI will undoubtedly leave out some of the best movie quotes in lieu of just about any line of dialogue from Casablanca, I am asking for your help. Let's compile our own 100 Most Memorable Movie Quotes. I am accepting submissions starting now. Leave 1, or leave 100. I will compile everyone's nominations (and judge them for myself) and then post the definitive 100 Most Memorable Movie Quotes. Let the games begin!

Elsa to Maria in The Sound of Music: "Maria, I'm sure you'll make a perfect nun." Probably not appreciated by all as much as I love it. But it's a great scene (even John would like it), and I've acted it out countless times with my dear friend Angela Gaylor, now appearing on Broadway in La Cage Aux Folles.

I was trying to think of movie lines we pepper into our vernacular. This is what I’ve come up with so far. These may not be the “best” or most well-known, but I like them.
