    Next Tuesday (8th of May), "20" To 1 will be screening a special episode; 50 To 1: Great Movie One-Liners.  I thought that I would create this thread for people to come and make some predictions on what should be on the list.  I know that this is probably a fruitless exercise as I am probably the only one who comes to this page (and therefore I am only talking to myself as no one is reading this!), but I may be wrong.  Someone might find this page by mistake, thinking that the show was something else.

    Now, there have been some great films, and some brilliant one-liners, but what would you call the best one-liners in movie history?

    N.B.: There is an Australian flair to this list, so it is to be expected that some of the films will be Australian.

    a couple years late but I was in the mood...

    as per above plus maybe the following

    - Ma, I made it…Top of the world

    - Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine

    - Hey... STELLA

    - One MILLION dollars (try to say this without putting your pinky to the corner of your mouth)

    - YOu had me at hello

    - Get your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!

    - Thats not a knife...thats a knife.

    - what we have here is a failure to communicate

    - we're going to need a bigger boat

    Ok, thats all I can think of that others might miss. :-) These are off to top of my head so if I got some wrong..umm...sorry.

    oh yea, how about a couple famous never said quotes..such as"play it again sam" or "beam me up scotty"
