Its a full moon, and we are just passing through the shortest day of the year, so it is only fitting the blog posts are a little off the wall. Continuing with that theme, Yet Another Top 100: The top 100 quotes from the American Film Institute.

Several of my favourites are there. But what's missing? Anyone missing some great lines? I liked HAL saying "I'm sorry Dave, I can't do that" from 2001: A Space Odyssey, but they went with the hanger door line.

My T100 would have to include: "Angry? You haven't seen me when I'm angry"

And about 50 quotes from Monty Python films alone, such as: "He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy"

What are your favs? Here's some I like from the official list:

1. "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn," "Gone With the Wind," 1939.

2. "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse," "The Godfather," 1972.

4. "Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore," "The Wizard of Oz," 1939.

5. "Here's looking at you, kid," "Casablanca," 1942.

6. "Go ahead, make my day," "Sudden Impact," 1983.

10. "You talking to me?" "Taxi Driver," 1976.

11. "What we've got here is failure to communicate," "Cool Hand Luke," 1967.

22. "Bond. James Bond," "Dr. No," 1962.

25. "Show me the money!", "Jerry Maguire," 1996.

29. "You can't handle the truth!", "A Few Good Men," 1992.

33. "I'll have what she's having," "When Harry Met Sally...," 1989.

35. "You're gonna need a bigger boat," "Jaws," 1975.

37. "I'll be back," "The Terminator," 1984.

50. "Houston, we have a problem," "Apollo 13," 1995.

51. "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?", "Dirty Harry," 1971.

52. "You had me at `hello,'" "Jerry Maguire," 1996.

58. "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer," "The Godfather Part II," 1974.

64. "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!", "Dr. Strangelove," 1964.

65. "Elementary, my dear Watson," "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," 1929.

76. "Hasta la vista, baby," "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," 1991.

79. Striker: "Surely you can't be serious." Rumack: "I am serious ... and don't call me Shirley," "Airplane!", 1980.

90. "A martini. Shaken, not stirred," "Goldfinger," 1964.

94. "I feel the need — the need for speed!", "Top Gun," 1986.

95. "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary," "Dead Poets Society," 1989.

Film: Sam Pekenpah's "Cross of Iron"
Actor: Lee Marvin (I think)
Scene: Germans in a trench on the Eastern Front contemplating a slow defeat.
Line: (from what I remember) "God!? - I think God is a sadist - and doesn't even know it."

There's another line from '2001' that seems very appropriate to blogging. It comes from the end of that same scene with HAL:

"This conversation can serve no purpose anymore."
