Most quotable movie lines: Nos. 41-60



Paul_gleason_2 The list of the 80 most quotable movie lines of the 80s marches on today. (Click here to view Nos. 61-80.)

Remember, the list was built based on reader recommendation and other important criteria, including how easy it is to use the line in everyday banter and how often the movie shows up on TV.

Today's big winners: "The Breakfast Club" gets two entries today. But Rodney Dangerfield also has two quotes, albeit from different movies. One, of course, is his infamous improvised ending to "Caddyshack." (Kenny Loggins, who handled the music duties for the movie, told us during his podcast interview that the script for Caddyshack wasn't near complete when filming started. So many of the lines we've come to cherish are in fact improvised at the last minute.)

As always, drop us a comment and tell us what you think of the list so far.
