1997's Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery introduced fans to Mike Myers's wild and wacky character, Austin Powers. The spoof of the James Bond films went on to be a huge cult hit with comedy movie fans. Within a few years, several other Austin Powers films followed: 1999's Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and 2002's Austin Powers in Goldmember.
Just as with the films of his predecessor, James Bond, all of the Austin Powers movies contain a lot of memorable quotes - but the first is by far the most quotable of the bunch. Remember the first time you heard Austin utter "Groovy, baby?" Yeah, we do too. Check out some more of the best quotes from Austin Powers.
1. Yeah, Baby!
Austin Powers: "Yeah, baby, yeah!"Did Mike Myers know when he uttered this simple phrase that it would eventually find it's way into iconic pop culture status? Probably not. But it sure did. Yeah, baby, it sure did.Should this be higher or lower?
2. Do I Make You Horny?
Austin Powers: "Do I make you horny? Randy? Do I make you horny, baby, yeah, do I?"Yet another of Austin's nearly exhaustive efforts to shag with the lovely Agent Kensington. And yet another extremely popular catch phrase.

3. Shagadelic, Baby
Vanessa: "Do you think she's prettier than me?"Vanessa (Elizabeth Hurley) is filled with self doubt after learning that Austin shagged Alotta F*gina. She soon learns, however, that she's totally "Shagadelic," and yet another popular Austin Powers catch phrase is born!
Austin Powers: "Who?"
Vanessa: "You know who."
Austin Powers: "Oh, the Italian bird. No, baby. She's rancid. I think you're shagadelic, baby. You're switched on. You're smashing!"Should this be higher or lower?
4. Dr. Evil Therapy
Dr. Evil: "Very well. Where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15-year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds. Pretty standard really. At the age of 12, I received my first scribe. At the age of 14, an Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my t*******s. There really is nothing like a shorn s*****m, it's breathtaking I suggest you try it."Is there any doubt why Dr. Evil is so...well...evil? No, no there isn't. Definitely one of the funniest monologues in the 'Austin Powers' series!Should this be higher or lower?
