I used to say the first one over and over and over again!


Top 12 Best Movie Lines Ever

Horror writer Stephen King, who moonlights as an Entertainment Weekly columnist, recently polled EW readers to find out what they think are the best movie lines ever.

Here are the 12 picks by Entertainment Weekly readers:

1. "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
--Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin) in "The Princess Bride"

2. "Inconceivable!" "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
--Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin) in "The Princess Bride"

3. "Have fun storming the castle."
--Miracle Max (Bill Crystal) in "The Princess Bride"

4. "As you wish."
--Westley (Cary Elwes) in "The Princess Bride"

5. "I'll have what she's having."
--Female diner (Estelle Reiner) in "When Harry Met Sally"

6. "You had me at hello."

8. "You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together...and blow."
--Marie Browning (Lauren Bacall) in "To Have and Have Not"

--Gilda (Rita Hayworth) in "Gilda"

10. "Veda's convinced me that alligators have the right idea: They eat their young."

--Matty Walker (Kathleen Turner) in "Body Heat"

12. "Get outta here! And don't come back for five to seven days!"
--Vada Sultenfuss (Anna Chlumsky) in "My Girl"

Entertainment Weekly editors didn't want the readers to have all the fun. So they picked 50 more great movie quotes from the last half century. Here are the top five:

1. "I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it."

--Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) in "Psycho"

3. "Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me."
--Ben Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) in "The Graduate"

4. "Hey, don't knock masturbation. It's sex with someone I love."
--Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) in "Annie Hall"

5. "She's my daughter! She's my sister! She's my daughter! My sister, my daughter. She's my sister and my daughter."
--Evelyn Cross Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) in "Chinatown"
