I am doing the marquee sign at a video store and need great one liners for the board. What are some of your favorites? A few criteria:

1) They have to be 27 characters (including spaces) or less.

2) They need to be recognizable from a specific film (for example, "I'm getting too old for this" is used in many films where "I want an Oompa Loompa now" is very specific).

3) They can be naughty if you have seen the film, but generally suitable for public display (for example, the quote "Get the butter" is naughty if you have seen "Last Tango in Paris", or "This one time at band camp..." if you have seen "American Pie" but is not if you haven't).

Thanks----

Please be as obscure and creative as you like but I need exact quotes!!

You can't do without "I'll be back" and "Here's looking at you, kid" (I assume "Play it, Sam. Play 'As Tears Go By'" happens to be too long).
