One of the signs of a great movie, a movie that you come back to watch again and again, is how often you quote dialogue from it. Sometimes it's something funny to work into a given situation, sometimes it's something completely abstract to make you laugh, or sometimes you just want a conversation with someone consisting solely of movie quotes. Whatever the reason, it's awesome, and here are our ten most quoted movies of all time.
10. Monty Python & The Holy Grail
This 1975 film has King Arthur and his fearless knights head off in search of The Holy Grail, crossing paths will all sorts of "obstacles" along the way. If you have never seen it, check it out now, but chances are you've already heard all the best quotes and just weren't aware what movie they were from.

Classic Quote #1: "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball." (Dodgeball) / "There was a moment last night, when she was sandwiched between the two Finnish dwarves and the Maori tribesmen, where I thought, "Wow, I could really spend the rest of my life with this woman." (Zoolander)

2. The Big Lebowski
A mixture of The Coen Brothers' pitch-perfect script and spot-on delivery from the likes of Jeff Bridges and John Goodman has made this one of the most quoted movies of all time. There is never a bad time to watch this Raymond Chandler-on-weed comedy mystery.
Classic Quote #1: "That rug really tied the room together."
Classic Quote #2: "I'm not Mr. Lebowski, YOU'RE Mr. Lebowski, I'm The Dude, so that's what you call me, you know, that or, uh, Duder or His Dudeness or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing."
