Wait a minute, you ain't heard nothing yet... you think some quotes are memorable because they perfectly captured the spirit of a scene or a movie, well, you're right. But if you think this is a credit to the writers, you couldn't be more wrong.

Actually, the credit goes to the editors who knew exactly where to cut, or when to put a soundtrack loud enough to cover the rest of the sentence.

Now, exclusively, here are the classic movie quotes as you should have heard them if it wasn't for the editors' foresight, regardless of the ridiculous impact they would have on the film had they been kept, which one do you find the most interesting in a funny or not-so-implausible way?

ElM,

You have a formatting problem for:
2. The Godfather (1972)

"It's a Sicilian message, it means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes. Now, can I keep them? You know, with some garlic, oil, cream and herbs, they make great soup.[/b]

My choice:
14. My Fair Lady (1964)
- "Eliza, where the devil are my slippers?"
- "If I find any, I'll tell you where you can shove it!"

I'm assuming you are adding fictional additional lines. The Alan Jay Lerner for the play ends with the line:
- "Eliza, where the devil are my slippers?"

I've seen no indication that the playwright and screenwriter, Alan Jay Lerner, added anything beyond that point in the screenplay.

My high school production in 1973 ended with Eliza Doolittle and Professor Henry Higgins kissing. The director added this scene. I humbly believe that this ruined the play.

Fictional additional lines of humorous content :)
Thanks for the typo, I fixed it.
