    I think any Mel Brooks movie has several but most recently I was enjoying Blazing Saddles for about the millionth time and this one was just so fun I had to put it up as my Facebook status:

    "You use your tongue purtier than a twenty dollar whore."

    To which one of my good friends replied:

    "Think of your secretary."

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail is easily has the most quotable lines in any movie. I know plenty of people who have inadvertently memorized the entire thing.

    I have memorized the entirety of The Wizard of Oz but don't believe it's entirely quotable.

    My favorite most memorable line has to be this classic from Casablanca which is an enormously quotable film itself. It's loaded with great lines from beginning to end and it's rare to find someone who get the references.

    It has to be either "May the force be with you" or "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn"

    From Stagecoach, -John Wayne's demonstration of the art of Proposal of Marriage....

    .....opening line to a woman he just met: "Look, Miss Dallas, well, maybe I'm takin' a lot for granted, but... well, I gotta ranch across the border, a real nice place, trees... grass... water. There's a cabin half built. A man could live there..." (turning to her, with emphasis) "...and a woman. Will-ya go?"

    "It's difficult to understand the sum of a person's life.
    Some people will tell you, it's measured by the people left behind.
    Some believe it can be measured in faith.
    Some say, by love.
    Other folks say life has no meaning at all.
    Me, I believe that you measure yourself by the people who measure themselves by you."

    Money is like manure. It doesn't do any good unless you spread it around.
