If you're a fan of Netflix, Zach Galifianakis, and/or awkward comedy, we want you to vote for the best Between Two Ferns: The Movie quotes. This is the feature-length film version of the popular Funny or Die web series in which Galifianakis plays an exaggerated version of himself. He hosts a public access TV show where he attempts to interview various celebrities. Usually, he just ends up embarrassing himself with inappropriate questions and dumb remarks. 

There are plenty of funny lines and hilarious one-liners in Between Two Ferns: The Movie. It's a "mockumentary" that follows Galifianakis as he and his crew travel the country, attempting to complete ten episodes of his show in order to please producer Will Ferrell. Some of the laughs come from supporting characters, like Zach's assistant Carol (Lauren Lapkus) and cameraman Cameron "Cam" Campbell (Ryan Gaul). Others come from the A-list stars Zach interviews, including Matthew McConaughey, Bruce Willis, Brie Larson, Tiffany Haddish, and David Letterman. The end result is wall-to-wall laughter, anchored by the inimitable sensibility of its central comedian.

Vote up the most memorable Between Two Ferns: The Movie quotes from the list below, regardless of whether it's Zach, a crew member, or a superstar who speaks them.

    Zach Galifianakis (to Hailee Steinfeld): You have twelve million Instagram followers. How long did it take for you to apologize to each one of them for Bumblebee? (pause) I walked out of that movie. I'm just kidding, I didn't walk out. I skipped out because I was so happy to be leaving.
