POPped List: Top 10 Most Quoted Movies

It all starts with a blank page.  From there pop culture is born through words.  Words that have made their way into our daily conversations.  Earlier this week I asked our followers on Twitter and Facebook to tell us what movie's they quoted the most often. Yes it was very scientific. With Star Wars being celebrated so much this month (not that there's anything wrong with that), I found myself getting frustrated with people mis-quoting The Empire Strikes Back. But it was this insane knowledge of movie quotes that got me to think...what are the most popular ones.

Admit it. You've had that moment with your friends when you walk into a vodka bar in Vegas and yell, "Hey! Where the white women at?!" No? Just me? Okay. Well, either way, if you are a fan of this site you know that you cannot help but use lines from a movie that are just so perfect. That's where this list comes in to play. Out of close to five whole responses we have compiled the top 10 favorite movies people love to quote and annoy people with:

#10 - The Sandlot

"You're killin' me Smalls!"

"I thought you said the great Bambi."

"You play ball like a GIRL!"

#9 - Top Gun

"I got the need. The need for speed!"

"Take me to bed or lose me forever!"

"That's a negative Ghost Rider, the pattern is full."

#8 - Swingers

"Vegas baby, Vegas!"

"You're so money and you don't even know it."

"And you got these f****** claws and these fangs, man! And you're looking at your claws and you're looking at your fangs. And you're thinking to yourself, you don't know what to do, man. 
"I don't know how to kill the bunny." With *this* you don't know how to kill the bunny, do you know what I mean?"

#7 - Ghostbusters

"Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together...mass hysteria!"

"He slimed me."

"What about the Twinkie?"

#6 - The Empire Strikes Back

"No.. I am your father."

"Do or do not. There is no try."

"Who's scruffy lookin'?"

#5 - Animal House

"Was it over when the German's bombed Pearl Harbor?"

"They can't do that to our Pledges. Only we can do that to our Pledges."


#4 - Caddyshack

"Hey everybody, we're all gonna get laid!"

"Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac... It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!"

Judge Smails: Ty, what did you shoot today?
Ty Webb: Oh, Judge, I don't keep score. Judge Smails: Then how do you measure yourself with other golfers?
Ty Webb: By height

#3 - Blazing Saddles

"Hey! Where the white women at?!"

Gabby Johnson: Hey! The sheriff's a nig...
[Clock bell chimes]
Harriet Johnson: What did he say?
Dr. Sam Johnson: He said the sheriff's near.
Gabby Johnson: No, gone blame it dang blammit! The sheriff is a nig...
[Clock bell chimes again]

Bart: Are we awake?

Bart: Yes, we are.
Jim: Then we're awake... but we're very puzzled.

#2 - Monty Python and the Holy Grail

"It's just a flesh wound."

"Bring out yer' dead!"

"You don't frighten us, English pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called "Arthur King," you and all your silly English K-nig-hts."

#1 - Airplane 

Striped controller: Bad news. The fog's getting thicker.
Johnny: And Leon is getting laaaaarrrrrger.

"Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?"

Rumack: Captain, how soon can you land?
Captain Oveur: I can't tell.
Rumack: You can tell me. I'm a doctor.
Captain Oveur: No. I mean I'm just not sure.
Rumack: Well, can't you take a guess?
Captain Oveur: Well, not for another two hours.
Rumack: You can't take a guess for another two hours?

What say you?  What movie do you think should have made the list, or what lines from these movies are your favorites?
