The Flipped Disc – Our Top Ten Favourite Movie Quotes

People parody, quote, mis-quote and abuse lines from films that were made before they were even born. We all have our own list of best-loved movie quotes and frankly FAR too many to cram into a trifling little “top ten” list, but here’s a few of our favourites.
