Any man forgets his number spends a night in the box.

I'm feeling more than a bit nostalgic today and this hit the spot.

Not the top 100 movies of all time, but 100 movie quotes, from movies many will recognize, whereby a number is used, counting down from 100.

My 10 favorites were 98, 73, 68, 55, 50, 44, 43, 41, 11, and 8. Also, I would have had a different offering for 3 and 1 (Highlander, 'cause there can only be 1).



For a bonus, how about AFI's 100 Greatest Movie Quotes?


Any of these bring back any memories for you?

Pretty neat. Too bad the AFI didn't get the infamous line by Darth Vader:

"Luke, I am your father."

I so wanted to name a boy "Luke" just so I could use that line!
