Forget Shakespeare and Nietzsche- modern cinema is where it's at when it comes to good quotes. Some movies are more quotable than the Old Testament (have you SEEN Heathers?), and have made it into the modern vernacular. Here are some of the best ones, courtesy of Reddit.

The Truman Show

"And in case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening and good night."

Pulp Fiction

Giphy

"Does he look like a b*tch?"

n_Butylamine

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Gladiator

"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next."

Nazarov-

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

"Listen, strange women, lying in ponds, distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you. I mean, if I went 'round, saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!"

'Hey Paul!" -Patrick Bateman moments before he swings his axe.

Had my wife and I in hysterics, which may not have been the appropriate response.
