I am one of those people who talks in quotes. It might be annoying at times, but I think we can all appreciate a shared reference every now and then. So we wondered, what are the most quotable movies of all time?
Here’s some of the best answers I could find from the movie lovers of the internet.
Long before “On Wednesdays we wear pink” became a pop culture staple (thanks Gen z for bringing that back!) Mean Girls was a movie we loved to quote.
Just as long as you’re not trying to make fetch happen, because it’s never going to happen. Ok?
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
“‘Tis but a scratch”, “Bring out your dead”, “I didn’t vote for you”… How many iconic lines were in this movie?
From the hilarious opening sequence with the subtitles “We apologise for the fault in the subtitles. Those responsible have been sacked.” to “Alright, that’s enough.” at the end, every moment of Monty Python and The Holy Grail is quotable.
The Big Lebowski
Well that’s your opinion, man!
Actually, it’s a lot of people’s opinion – The Big Lebowski is a great movie when it comes to quotes. Anyway, enough talking about this. Let’s go bowling.
I admit that I only first saw this movie a couple of years ago and I had no idea what I was missing. It’s also way too real. I mean really, how many people around the office where you work could actually answer, “What would you say… You do here?”.
If you could just answer that one question, and come in on Saturday, that would be greeeeat.
The Princess Bride
It would be inconceivable to leave The Princess Bride off this list! After all, what’s more quotable than the “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!” line.
This one is quotable, but sadly I can’t share any of my favorites on here while keeping things PG.
So I’ll leave you with this great, almost safe for work quote: “I hate to shatter your ego but this isn’t the first time I’ve had a gun pointed at me.”
Yarp! Any of the Cornetto trilogy (yes, that’s what the trio of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and World’s End is called) is super quotable, but this is definitely the stand out of the three.
I probably say “Nobody Tells Me Nothin’!” from this movie at least once a week.
“People don’t forget.”
They sure haven’t forgotten about Superbad, that’s for sure. Still highly quotable, even now. Especially if it was one of those movies that shaped your high school years.
So many great one-liners in this one, especially when they’re pulling people over. “These snozzberries taste like snozzberries” is probably one of the most easily recognizable lines, but there’s also the one about asking a chicken lover for their license and registration that cracks us up too.
A Christmas Story
“You’ll shoot your eye out” trying to stop quoting this cult classic! So many quotes from this movie have made it into our everyday language that it’s easy to forget where they actually came from.
“Oh my god I shot my eye out!”
I remember when this movie came out and everyone was saying “Vote for Pedro”. Personally, I wasn’t even a fan of the film, but I still quote it often enough – which says a lot about its lasting power and quotability.
The Fifth Element
Last but certainly not least considering it’s my favorite movie is The Fifth Element. If you meat popsicles haven’t seen this one you’re missing out on being able to say “multipass” every time you hold up a ticket or ID card.
