List: Best Film Quotes #200-176

I apologize for the incomplete post on Thursday. I began this project of the best movie quotes quite a while ago and had them all scheduled but was unable to get the first one complete, but now here it is.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 greatest movie quotes (See their list here). For the rest of this year, I will publish my own list of the greatest quotes, but I will have 200 quotes. My list will represent several categories of films that were ineligible for the AFI (non-American films, documentaries, and films of the last ten years). I will present 25 quotes each list, and you watch the scenes that contain these quotes by clicking on this Youtube link.
