There are a number of organizations that have ranked the Top 100 Movie Quotes of All Time, most notably AFI. The other day, Liquid Generation even put together a video including 100 Great Quotes in 200 Seconds. But whenever you check these Great Quote Lists, they inevitably tend to include the same iconic quotes from Rocky or Casablanca or Titanic, etc. Most of them have been so overused and parodied in pop culture they’ve become quote clichés. They are the quotes your great uncle reels off at family outings in order to sound contemporary. He’s not. And most of those quotes have had their day and should be retired.

So, the other day, our readers amassed an incredible list of great movie quotes rarely, if ever, included on lists that count down the 100 Best Quotes of All Time. These aren’t those quotes — they’re the ones you throw back and forth at each other over drinks. The ones you work into conversations. The ones that have become part of the running jokes in your lives.

And so, I give you this: The Other 100 Best Movie Quotes of All Time.
