Top Movie Quotes
Let's get started! We've invited a few special guests to join us in an ongoing discussion and critique of the American Film Institute's latest list - the top 100 movie quotes of all time. AFI has come up with 400 potential listees. That list was sent to their panel of "experts" to come up with the top 100, based on their criteria, to be presented in June 2005. Well, we're not going to leave it up to experts - we have a few thoughts (a few) and opinions (many) and we intend to voice them.

From now till Christmas let's take a look at the first 29 quotes on the list - all from films beginning with the letter A. For instance,
  • "Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue." Airplane!
  • "Follow the money." All The President's Men
  • "I love the smell of napalm in the morning." Apocalypse Now
And since we're all movie buffs, we may discover some excellent quotes are missing from the list. I've already noted the absence of any quotes from from another "A" movie, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Across the 8th Dimension. Why are these memorable lines not on the list?
"Where are we going?" "Planet 10!" "When?" "Real soon!"

"Hey man, nice jacket. What's in the big pink box?"

"Why is there a watermelon there?"
So let's hear it guys. It's time to banter.
