Favorite Movie Quote Of All Time

They say the greatest form of flattery is to quote someone. So today let’s flatter some writers of movies. Often when I am presenting at a conference I will toss in a movie quote to drive home a point. I really like using movie quotes because they can break up a speech and often the audience can relate to the point through the movie. There are so many movies and so many great quotes.

Here are a few of my favorites:

  • “You had me at hello” Jerry Maguire
  • “Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.” — Animal House
  • “You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use then as the backbone of a life trying to defend something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said “thank you,” and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest that you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a d*mn what you think you are entitled to.” — A Few Good Men
  • “My biological clock is ticking” My Cousin Vinny
  • “I know what you’re thinking, “Did he fire six shots, or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost track myself. But, being that this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question, “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya punk?” — Dirty Harry
