"A boy's best friend is his mother."
 -PSYCHO
 
Wrong, it should read: "We all go a little mad sometimes..."

and

"Open the pod bay doors, HAL."
 -2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY

Should read: "I'm sorry Dave, I can't do that"

and where the hell is Ghostbusters?

It was a big let down how star wars didn't make it into the top five and "I am your father" was left out of the 100.  I don't think on the waterfront should have gotten the third spot. Overall I was expecting a different list then the one provided by AFI.

I saw Casablanca once on tv about 2 years ago to see what the fuss was about. I fell asleep. Sad

how I am your father did not make the list baffles me.

Cassablanca was a good movie though.

I like how the gadfather made the top 5

I'm pretty sure the only reason "Gone with the Wind" Got the number one space is becuase of the fact that it was the first time any profanity was used in the theaters. If not for that publicity, the godfather would be first.

If there was a 100 list for British movies, one of my favorite would have to be from Lock, Stock and two Smoking Barrels character, Soap (Dexter Fletcher)...

"Get your fingers out of my soup!"

What a crock of crap!  Who makes Top 100s in anycase?  This should be left up to the general movie goers, as half of the movies seem to be out of touch with today's audience.

Should also be...

Another SHINING quote....

Darling. Light, of my life. I'm not gonna hurt ya. You didn't let me finish my sentence. I said, I'm not gonna hurt ya. I'm just gonna bash your brains in. I'm gonna bash 'em right the fuck in. Ha, ha.

Another AIRPLANE quote...

You ever seen a grown man naked?

The quote from CADDYSHACK was pants, the best quote has to be...

I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

There are some quotes that should not
