Movie Quotes


I never watch three consecutive hours of television unless the Cubs are involved, but CBS sure snookered me in last night with their top 100 movie quotes show.

Before the show, I guessed as my top three:

"Here's Looking at you, kid."
"I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse."
"May the Force be with you."

"Force be With You" came in at #8, "Here's looking at you" came in #5 and "Make him an offer" came in at #2.

Here's the full list.

Prediction: if in 10 years they do this again, CasaBlanca will go from having six to seven in the top 100. Why? Because what blogger hasn't used some variation of "I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!" Believe me, it will be in the top 30.

Complaint: How on earth does Animal House make the top 100 with "Toga, Toga!" but "Over, you say it's over? Nothing is over until we decide it is!" doesn't make a ripple?

I have to hand it to CBS and the American Film Institute. There were several movies represented that I've never seen, but that I will now be renting.
