The American Film Institute announced its nominees for the top 100 movie quotes. The 400 excerpts include:
You make me want to be a better man.
AS GOOD AS IT GETS
I love him because he’s the kind of guy who gets drunk on a glass of buttermilk, and I love the way he blushes right up over his ears. I love him because he doesn’t know how to kiss, the jerk!
BALL OF FIRE
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.
I do not know how to kiss, or I would kiss you. Where do the noses go?
FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS
What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word, and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down.
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
I think people should mate for life, like pigeons or Catholics.
Listen to me, mister. You’re my knight in shining armor. Don’t you forget it. You’re going to get back on that horse, and I’m going to be right behind you, holding on tight, and away we’re gonna go, go, go!
