A huge part of what makes a movie great is its script and quotability. This is particularly true when it comes to comedies. A great comedy’s legacy consists largely of how many recognizable one-liners it produces, and many of these quotes are repeated by people of all ages, all around the world. These quotes often end up on t-shirts, posters, or as memes, which allows for their wide circulation so we never forget them. Here are 20 of the funniest and most popular movie quotes of all time.
