Celebrating Mother's Day, here's a selection of memorable movie quotes that contain the words mother, Ma, Mama, Mom...and I guess that's about it, we excluded derivative words like grandmother, godmother or the infamous word that goes with "Yippie-Ki-Yay", out of respect (sorry Die Hard (1988) and Samuel L. Jackson's fans). So...

Which of these motherly movie quotes is your favorite?

Mrs. George: I just want you to know, if you ever need anything, don't be shy, OK? There are NO rules in the house. I'm not like a *regular* mom, I'm a *cool* mom. - Mean Girls

Gretchen: Make sure you check out her mom's boob job. They're hard as rocks. - Mean Girls

Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Listen, if your mother had had the abortion, we wouldn't have to sit through this stupid assembly! - Lady Bird

Juno MacGuff: Bleeker's mom was possibly attractive once, but now she looks like a Hobbit. You know, the fat one, that was in the Goonies. - Juno

Elmo, you must have a "Great Poll Machine" in your basement, lol. 'Tough choice, too. I love this one.

Woops, too late, I was in the arms of Morpheus when you posted this, but I guess it's no real big deal :)
