Many movies enter the social zeitgeist, not because they’re necessarily great flicks, but because we love to quote them! This list takes a look at some of the most quotable movies ever and tries to avoid many of the cliché, Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damns and E.T phone home.
12. Wayne’s World
This Saturday Night Live spin-off flick was hugely successful back in 1992 and featured the great comedic talents of Mike Myers as Wayne Campbell, and Dana Carvey as Garth Algar. The film is the highest grossing SNL skit-based film and was the 10th highest grossing film of that year.

Most notably, “schwing!” I think it’s about time that made a comeback!
