List RulesVote up the movies that get quoted the most.

Some movies are famous because they are filled with memorable lines. People are constantly quoting these movies. Sometimes we love the movies solely because of the lines and continue to quote the movie even though you have forgotten the plot. You can't go to a party, college campus, movie geek hang out, etc. and not hear at least one line from one of these movies. These are the films with lines you just can't help by repeat. Vote up the movies you've heard quoted a million times.
