AFI's 100 Years...100 Movie Quotes
"Here's looking at you, kid."
"Show me the money!"
"No wire hangers!"
"I'll be back."
On June 21st, CBS will broadcast the latest in the American Film Institute's series of "100 Years..." lists.
100 Years...100 Movie Quotes, to be hosted by Pierce Brosnan, will countdown the quotes using cultural impact as a primary criteria. As with their other lists, this one will stir up friendly debate and fond memories amongst movie fans...everyone has their favorite quotes from movies, of course.
I've seen a lot of movies in my day and heard a lot of great lines. Five of my favorites (in no particular order):
"Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night." (Bette Davis in All About Eve)
"What we got here... is failure to communicate." (Strother Martin in Cool Hand Luke)
"Forget it, Jake...it's Chinatown." (Joe Mantell to Jack Nicholson in Chinatown)
"You've got me? Who's got you?!?" (Margot Kidder to Christopher Reeve in Superman)
"They call me Mister Tibbs!" (Sidney Poitier to Rod Steiger in In the Heat of the Night)
What about you? What are some of your favorite movie lines?
