With the Academy Awards this Sunday, The Hollywood Reporter has released a list of the top 100 movie quotes. Quite a few of these movies began as novels or short stories - as did the #1 quote. Did you know the line was very nearly censored? One of the alternatives given by producers was ‘whoop’. Here are a few ‘novel’ quotes:
"It's alive! It's alive!" (also censored)
"Love means never having to say you're sorry."
"Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me, aren't you?"
"You is kind. You is smart. You is important."
