Live Poll: Most Quotable 1994 Movie

My mama always said "1994 was a great year for movie quotes". Even the stupid ones (as stupid does), first you hate' em and then you get used to them, then they become part of cinematic memory and we all get connected to the great circle of life. By the way, you know how they call a "movie quote" in Paris? They call it "réplique de film"?

So which of these 1994 movies would you say is the most "répliquable"?

Quotability is usually a sign of cult status and 1994 was abundant in cult movies both on mainstream and not-so-mainstream sides. Nice suggestion!

Oh, and FYC:
The Crow (1994):
"Can't rain all the time..."
"Believe me, nothing is trivial"
"Victims; aren't we all?"

I suggest you use double line breaks after each quote so they are easier to read.

You really have a talent for this stuff, wow. I know I've told you that a hundred times and suggested you have a machine in your basement that makes great polls, lol, but, just in case you forgot, you rock, ElMo. : )

Out of many funny things, this might be the funniest: By the way, you know how they call a "movie quote"in Paris? They call it "réplique de film"? I love that. : )

It might be it is, because I'm not living on the american continent, but ...
at least 4/5 of all those quotes are not quotable enough for me to remember.
So I voted for "This is from ... Mathilda.".

What does it have to do with which continent you're living in?

Well, "Run, Forrest. Run!" is more popular, so it's more quoteable.And it is a very fitting quote for the situation of the main character. So everybody remembers the quote.
But the more thrilling scene was that with "This is from ... Mathilda."
That's when I'm watching the movie - watching the villain's face shortly after he noticed what will happen immediately after the words and then I think: "Yesss! Ringtrick, B*st*rd!"

albstein:
Das is nur eine Vermutung. Ich kann mich nur an wenige dieser Zitate erinnern, vermutlich weil nur diese in der Übersetzung bei uns so prägnant waren, daß sie sich mir wirklich stark eingeprägt haben. Ich kann das nicht in Englisch erklären. Dafür reichen meine Kenntnisse leider nicht.
