To be honest, half of the things I say are direct movie quotes. Chances are that it’s from one of these fine films listed below.

The iconic 1990s comedy starring Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels is packed with memorable quotes that will make you laugh just thinking of them.

  • “But what if he shot you in the face?”

The workplace comedy perfectly encapsulates what it’s like working in a corporate office setting. As a result, there are plenty of quotes that people use, ironically, in their offices as they work.

  • “Looks like somebody’s got a case of the Mondays!”
  • “I tell you what I’d do, man, two chicks at the same time”
  • “What would you say you do here?”
  • “Yeahhh…”

  • “I gotta go wash something.”
  • “Hey, I’ve been turned into a cow. Can I go home?”

4. AIRPLANE! (1980)

Surely (inside joke for those in the know), a movie quotes list cannot be called complete without adding Airplane!

  • “Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.”
  • “I flew single-engine fighters in the Air Force, but this plane has four engines. It’s an entirely different kind of flying, altogether.”

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith is the highlight of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, even if it’s not perfect. It has plenty of quotes, though, both good and bad!

  • “Only the Sith deals in absolutes!”
  • “You were the chosen one! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring balance to the force… not leave it in darkness!”

Here are some popular ones:

  • “Revenge is a dish that tastes best when served cold.”
  • “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.”
  • “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse” (if you say it in your best Marlon Brando voice, it multiplies the intensity).
  • “Great men are not born great. They grow great.”
  • “A friend should always underestimate your virtues, and an enemy overestimates your faults.”


Monty Python and the Holy Grail

The Tom Hanks film won the Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director at the 67th Academy Awards in 1995. Now, we’re not saying it’s because of these iconic quotes, but certainly, it didn’t hurt.

  • “Lieutenant Dan, ice cream!”
  • “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
  • “So I went to the White House… again. And I met the President… again.”
  • “Sorry for ruinin’ your Black Panther party…”
