100 Best Movie Quotes? I beg to differ....

This was a post I orgionally did over at the Round Table, but felt like giving the qustion to all of you over here too. First, check out the link.

http://www.afi.com/tvevents/100years/quotes.aspx

The list that you'll see if you follow the above link is AFI's 100 best movie quotes of all time. While I do admit that they are good quotes, I think they missed some.
So here's my list of quotes that should have been added to the list.:

Princess Bride: My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.
Pulp fiction: No, I'm pretty fucking far from OK
Willy Wanka and the Chocolate Factory: Wait, take that, reverse it, thank you.
13th Warrior: Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.
Aliens: That's it, man. Game over, man! Game over!
Apocalypse Now: I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
Army of Darkness: Alright you primitive screw-heads, listen up. See this? This is my boomstick!
Bachlor Party: I think you're an asshole. No, no, let me correct that, an immature asshole. Which is fine, except that you're marrying my daughter and I'm afraid that my grandchildren are gonna be little assholes.
Better Off Dead: Go that way, really fast; if something gets in your way . . . turn./[I]'m real sorry your mom blew up, Ricky./Two Dollars.
Big Labowski: You're not wrong, Walter! You're just an a**hole!
Blazing Saddles: Mongo only pawn in game of life.
Christmas Story: You'll shoot your eye out!
Die Hard: You asked for miracles, Theo. I give you the F.B.I.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
Fish Called Wanda: to call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people! I've known sheep that could outwit you! I've worn dresses with higher I.Q.s!
Ghostbusters: We came. We saw. We kicked its ass!
Last Dragon: Who's the Master? Sho'Nuff
Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdome: Two men enter, one man leaves.
Stripes: There's something wrong with us! Something very, very wrong with us! Something seriously wrong with us! We're soldiers, but we're American soldiers! We've been kicking ass for 200 years! We're 10-and-1!
2010: I don't know if Hal is homicidal, suicidal, neurotic, psychotic, or just plain broken.
Jaws: You're gonna need a bigger boat./ Anti-shark cage. You go inside the cage? Cage goes in the water, you go in the water. Shark's in the water. Our shark. Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain. For we've received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so nevermore shall we see you again./
Finding Nemo: I shall call him squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my squishy.
Batman: I've been dead once already, it's very liberating. You might think of it as therapy.


Thats all I can think of right now.
So what would be your favorites that they didn't put on the list?

ok, THAT sucked! I hopped through the hoops like a good lil dog, but the danged thing kept tossin my butt out'a the web altogether!

So, without seeing the "official" 100, here's ones that probably should have been in there, eh?

"Hey. This isn't a flashlight..."
Steve Martin in Parenthood (or was that Fatther of the Bride?)

"I, man, have made FIRE!" Tom Hanks, Castaway.

"FEED ME, Seymour!" the killer plant in Little Shop of Horrors.

and, if I were going to put doubles in (quotes from the same actor, different movies...)

"Stuff THIS up yer big, fat buttocks and SMOKE IT!" Jack Lemmon, Mr. Roberts.

"It was more dog than leg." Jack Lemmon, Bagger Vance.

and if I had two quotes from the same movie, I would add,
"Oh no, sir. I was walking straight up the middle. Seemed I would be the safest there..." Will Smith in Bagger Vance.

Y'know, the AFI best movies that was on tv was quite a disappointment to me. Oh, don't get me wrong, they had a lot of great movies...only, now that there are like, I dunno, a B'ZILLION GREAT movies out there, it would seem a fool's task to try to whittle that down to a hundred.

Maybe after I get my next picture done, I'll give it a try, but, I'm bettin' I can't do it. There are just so many gREAT movies out there!
