Movie Quote of the Year?

USA Today has dubbed There Will Be Blood‘s "I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!" Hollywood’s hottest catchphrase. It also gives the origin of the quote — a transcript of a 1924 congressional hearing unearthed by Oscar-nominated writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson, who, incidentally, says he loves that YouTube video (below).

So is this your favorite movie quote of 2007? Or can you think of one that’s better than yours his? Nominate away.

    I like “Wizard!” and “Honest to Blog?” from JUNO – 2007’s BEST MOVIE. I also like “I don’t really know what kind of girl I am.” but have not quite wedged it in to everyday conversation yet.

    “How about a shave?” from Sweeney Todd. It makes my skin crawl just thinking about it.

  • Dtom

    My favorite is “I got a boner!” from Superbad.

  • hello

    I’m sure there will be better ones mentioned, but the first that came to my mind was McLovin.

  • Amber

    I like “this is one doodle that can’t be undid homeskillet” and “what other kind of shenanigans can I get into?” from Juno. There are tons of great quotes from that movie.

    haha my friends and i saw this movie a few weeks ago and we’re still quoting the milkshake and DRAAAAAAIIIINNAAGGE lines. btw, thanks for all the TWBB posts!

  • Bill

    I concur…

  • Rob Grizzly

    Gotta say, I didn’t love There Will Be Blood, but I did love this little video! That milk shake speech was memorable.
    I agree with Amber. There’s tons of great ones from Juno. “You should’ve gone to China. I hear they give away babies like free iPods!”
    I also agree about Superbad. Tons of great quotes from that one, too.
    I think alot of people will remember 300: “This. Is. Spartaaaa!!!”

    Since “Ratatouille” is my favorite movie of the year, I’d have to go with “Anyone can cook”…such a simple idea and theme, but so true.
    Honorary mention goes to “You gandered at my ward” – Alan Rickman in “Sweeney Todd”

    Since Atonement is this years best movie… how about this one from Cecilia (Keira) – “I love you. I’ll wait for you. Come back. Come back to me.”

  • Jeff W.

    I forgot to add this one from Michael Clayton – “Does it look like I’m negotiating?”
    And my absolute favourite quote of the year is from Elizabeth: The Golden Age – “I, too, can command the wind, sir! I have a hurricane in me that will strip Spain bare when you dare to try me!” Cate’s delivery of this gave me chills…it was fantastic!

  • Nick

    This should be included in that post about bad dialogue. WHO WROTE THAT INTO THE MOVIE?!?!!?!

  • Jeff W.

    Are you referring to the milkshake line? If so, I agree… I don’t see (or hear) what all the commotion is about… it was pretty cheesy, just like the rest of the horrible scene it was in… I hated that scene with a passion!!

    My favorite, and by far the funniest, movie this year is Hot Fuzz. So many good lines:
    “Well, I wouldn’t argue that it wasn’t a no holds barred, adrenaline fueled thrill ride. But, there is no way you can perpetrate that amount of carnage and mayhem and not incur a considerable amount of paperwork.”

  • Sally in Chicago

    Watching that clip makes me so not want to see this movie….I like DDL, but that seems to be “overacting”.
