All-time best movie quotes

Anyone care to share their all-time favorite movie quote?

One of mine:
Courtesy of Billy Brown (main character in "Buffalo 66"):

"Is this a shifter car? I cannot drive a shifter car, alright, so we got a little situation here. I can't drive these kinda cars! What the **** is goin' on! You think that's funny? Would you like to know, smartass? Would you like to know why I can't drive this kinda car? I'll tell you why, I'm used to 'luxury' cars. Have you ever heard of a luxury car? You know what luxury means? Ever heard of Cadillac, Cadillac Eldorado? That's what I drive. I drive cars that 'shift' themselves."

Woo hoo!! Got to love the Princess Bride.

Although not a film, one of the best quotes from TV recently has to be a CNBC journalist interviewing the fraudster Stanford: "Is it fun being a billionaire?"

Re: All-time best movie quotes

But probably the "cutest" movie quote of all time has to be the one that the late Estelle Reiner delivered in "When Harry Met Sally":

Not many after 1990. They just don't write 'em like they used to. Are writers getting lazy? Or maybe with special effects who needs scripts!

Bond... James Bond (only when Sean Connery says it)

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Cameron: The 1961 Ferrari 250GT California. Less than a hundred were made. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion.

Ferris:It is his fault he didn't lock the garage.

Re: All-time best movie quotes

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off."
- Tyler Durden
