RWN’s 100 Favorite Movie Quotes Of All Time

Here are some of my 12 faves from the list:

12) “Like maple syrup, Canada’s evil oozes over the United States.” — Canadian Bacon

11) Sir Bedemere: “What makes you think she’s a witch?” Peasant: “She turned me into a newt!” Sir Bedemere: “A newt?!” Peasant: “I got better”… Crowd: “BURN HER ANYWAY!” — — Monty Python and the Holy Grail

10) “Bluto’s right, psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these b*stards. Now, we could fight ’em with conventional weapons, that could take years, and cost millions of lives. No, in this case, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture, be done on somebody’s part.” — Animal House

9) “Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. Well, but you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you! I mean, if I went ’round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away!” — Monty Python and the Holy Grail

8) “Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and f*ck the prom queen.” — The Rock

6) “All right Clanton, you called down the thunder and now you’ve got it. You see that? It says United States Marshall. Take a good look at him Ike because that’s how your gonna end up.

So run you cur, run, tell all the other curs that law is coming, you tell I’m coming, and Hell’s coming with me you hear? Hell’s coming with me.” — Tombstone

5) “You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use then as the backbone of a life trying to defend something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said “thank you,” and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest that you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a d*mn what you think you are entitled to.” — A Few Good Men
