'Tower Heist' movie quotes are hilarious, with some of the best lines delivered by none other than Eddie Murphy. In 'Tower Heist,' Murphy plays a thief who's hired by security guard Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller), to help him rob his billionaire boss, Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda). Josh also has some really funny lines. I've compiled some of the best 'Tower Heist' quotes here. Be sure to vote for your favorites, and if you see a quote that isn't on the list, add it!

'Tower Heist' is a 2011 comedy movie directed by Brett Ratner. In the movie, billionaire Arthur Shaw's employees make plans to steal his money, after Arthur invests their life savings in a failed Ponzi scheme. In addition to Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller and Alan Alda, 'Tower Heist' also stars Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Tea Leoni and Gabourey Sidibe.

'Tower Heist' performed reasonably when it opened in U.S. theaters on November 4, 2011. The action comedy faced stiff box office competition from the likes of DreamWorks' 'Puss in Boots,' which went on to win the weekend (and several additional weekends as well). Since it's release, 'Tower Heist' has grossed well over $76 million domestically and more than $50 million internationally, for a worldwide total of more than $126 million.

    Odessa: "Ya mess wit me, ya a dead man."

    More funny Odessa. The quote itself is pretty benign, but it's Gabby Sidibe's delivery, in a Jamaican accent, that makes it so funny.

    Arthur Shaw: "I may have my own private island in Belize, but deep down, I'm just an Astoria boy like Josh here."
    Josh: "That's right, P.S. 104. Go Lions!"

    Sure, Mr. Shaw. You're just like everyone else. Except that you are A. A billionaire and B. A lying, cheating, sleazebag.

    Lunch is On Me

    Josh: "Jeez a hamburger is $24. We can't afford to eat here anyway."
    Slide: "We can order whatever we like cause uh, lunch is on me!" (Holds up a baggie with a dead roach inside)

    Slide is a true con artist, always carrying around a nice, dead, insect to get free meals. Don't try this at home. Or in your local restaurant. Please?
