No Carl the greenskeeper quotes, and no ‘Lighten up, Francis’ so this list is suspect right out of the gate.

My all time favorite quote, or exchange of quotes is:

“Heisenberg” [sheepishly whispered]

I need to leave FR for about an hour. I got lazy and didn't list all Top 100 (and felt nobody would want to read 100 quotes). If you don't see your favorite quote, check #51-#100 at the source.

How about the original True Grit line from John Wayne?

"Ned, I mean to kill you in one minute or take you back to Ft. Smith to hang at Judge Parker's convenience. Which will it be?"

I've used variations of that theme and Kim Darby's negotiating skills from the film in business successfully for many years.

Well, I certain do hope this survives for next year’s list.

It is a classic reminder of liberal inadequacy devolving down to a plea for coconspirator leniency in the face of abject incompetence and inability to think of more lies.
