More Amazing Movie Stuff!

The American Film Institute tracks a variety of movie facts and/or opinions. Today's lesson is What are some of the 100 Winning Movie Quotes from some sort of survey they conducted. You've got you're "Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore" and "You talking to me?", numbers 4 and 10 respectively. Let's scroll down the list... good golly! Even the bottom-of-the-barrel quotes are horribly familiar. Here's the closest I could find to 'lesser known'.

On Golden Pond
"Listen to me, mister. You're my knight in shining armor. Don't you forget it."

42nd Street
"Sawyer, you're going out a youngster, but you've got to come back a star!"
(Do they mean the guy from Lost?)

And here's what they list for Caddyshack ...
"Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac…It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!"
...when everybody knows the real quote from Caddyshack is "So I got that goin' for me. Which is nice."

Turkey: "A fine thing. First, you sell me for two hundred bucks. Then I'm gonna marry the Princess; then you cut in on me. Then we're carried off by a desert sheik. Now, we're gonna have our heads chopped off."
Jeff: "I know all that."
Turkey: "Yeah, but the people who came in the middle of the picture don't."
Jeff: "You mean they missed my song?!?"
