You remember the scene, and you remember the exact line from "A Few Good Men." Nicholson's infamous, "The truth? You can't handle the truth."
Well that line has topped an online poll of the most memorable movie quotes. You'll find the list below, and I even gathered some video for you to relive the moment of each famous line.
But my question is, how did the online poll system gather their subjects and who are they, because many more famous lines are missing from the list. "I see dead people" from "Sixth Sense" for instance, "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn" from "Gone With the Wind," or if we go the current route, "May the force be with you" from "Star Wars."
Simply put, I don't agree with some of the quotes on the list, but hey, I didn't vote so I can't complain, that's democracy for ya!
But for your viewing pleasure, here's the complete list of the Top 10 Movie Quotes:
1. A Few Good Men (1992) - "The truth? You can't handle the truth."
2. This Is Spinal Tap, 1984 - "These go to eleven."
3. The Godfather, 1972 - "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse."
4. Top Gun, 1986 - "I feel the need, the need for speed."
5. Sudden Impact, 1983 - "Go ahead, make my day."
6. Scarface, 1983 - "Say hello to my little friend."
7. The Italian Job, 1969 - "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off."
8. The Terminator, 1984 - "I'll be back."
9. Taxi Driver, 1976 - "You talking to me?"
10. The Shining, 1980 - "Here's Johnny."

See that picture? You can own the shirt, suit, and tie worn by Sean Penn in the Best Picture Academy award-nominated film, "Milk."
Just FYI, you can bid on the outfit but Penn is not being auctioned off
Focus Features, the studio behind this fantastic movie, has teamed up once again with The Clothes Off Our Back Foundation. Last year, they successfully hosted the online auction of Keira Knightley's fabulous green dress from "Atonement." And in 2006, two shirts memorably showcased in "Brokeback Mountain."
Now, it's "Milk."
The online auction will benefit both Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California and the Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School, in New York City.
Bidding will start at $1,000 and will end Saturday, February 28th!
How can you bid? Click here.
Oh, yeah, there's no high bidder yet, I just checked, so bid bid bid!
And good luck!

Two, count that two, screenwriters are vying for the right to make a movie about the Alaskan Governor, and failed Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin.
First, we have Dustin Lance Black of "Milk" saying, "I'm always down for politics as humour. I'm also interested in great characters."
Then, we have "The Visitor's" Thomas McCarthy who wants to focus his Palin project on the teenage boy who impregnated the Governor's 17-year old daughter, Bristol.
McCarthy says: "This young man gets his girlfriend pregnant and ends up on the Republican platform at the National Convention. There's a dark comedy there somewhere. He was like a deer in the headlights."
Now, don't get too excited yet. Both films are just in the beginning stages right now.
But I'm wondering, will Tina Fey act in any of the movies?

As you found out all the drama last Friday, you know, Universal dumping Dreamworks because they found out the Spielberg-company was also secretly wooing Disney.
It's like one of the subplots in the weekend's box-office champion, "He's Just Not That Into You."
Well, Disney really is into Dreamworks because the Mouse signed a deal!
According to Variety:
Disney has inked an exclusive long-term distribution arrangement with DreamWorks.
Under the terms of the arrangement, Disney, under the Touchstone banner, will handle distribution and marketing for approximately six DreamWorks films each year. The first DreamWorks pic would bow in 2010.
DreamWorks principals Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider partnered with Mumbai-based Reliance in the fall to form a new company and immediately inked a distribution deal with Universal. The U deal fell apart Friday after the studio found out that DreamWorks was in negotiations with Disney.
"We're both thrilled and honored to be marketing and distributing all of DreamWorks' signature upcoming live-action motion pictures and to begin a new relationship with such respected colleagues as Steven, Stacey and their creative team at DreamWorks," Disney chairman Dick Cook said. "Steven has made some of the biggest and most loved films of all-time, and continues to be one of the great icons of our industry. Stacey has an impeccable reputation and a phenomenal track record for making a wide variety of quality films. Their motion pictures will be the perfect compliment to the already robust slate of Disney and Touchstone films being made by Oren Aviv and his team."
