memorable movie quotes

Movies are a big part of our entertainment. We love to watch movies, go to the movies, rent movies, and not just for the popcorn. Some movies we have seen so many times we can recite the lines along with the actors. Some movie lines just seem to stick and we find ourselves using them in conversation.

I saw this guess the movie quote idea over at cousin Barry's blog a while back, and have been thinking about it, so here are quotes from some of my favorite movies, can you guess the movie?

  • In case I forget to tell you later, I had a really good time tonight.

  • Clear the mechanism.

  • So you're my Uncle Joey. Better get used to these bars, kid.

  • No one has said "whoopsidaisies" for fifty years and even then it was only little girls with blonde ringlets.

  • You're a lawyer too? I was already a bloodsucking parasite. All I needed was a briefcase!

  • You got more talent in one lugnut than a lot of cars has got on their whole body.

  • You're going to jail, Bart. Say good-bye to the wife and Tater Tots.

  • Hitting that baseball has spun your life off in an entirely new direction.

  • The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.

  • You want me to strap her to the hood? She'll be fine. It's not as if it's going to rain or something.

  • Swing away Merrill.

  • My dad's been captured by a ho!

  • I am your number one fan.

Of course, these are just my favorites, there are a lot more famous movie quotes out there. What is your favorite?

Those are some great quotes - but I am so horrible at "name that tune" type stuff...

"So you're my Uncle Joey. Better get used to these bars, kid." - Marty McFly, "Back to the Future"

"You got more talent in one lugnut than a lot of cars has got on their whole body." - Tater, "Cars"

"I am your number one fan." - Annie Wilkes, "Misery"

I probably know 2 or 3 more of them, but will wait to let others have a turn...
