Live Poll: Quotable Fantasy Classics

Most fantasy films are remembered for the splendor of their special effects, their heart-pounding action sequences, the enchantment they provide for children from 6 to 60 or the durability of a saga that made the audience grow with the characters.

These standalone fantasy classics are as enduring as any "franchise" (for the sake of this poll, we'll stick to trilogies and beyond) but it's fair to say that what makes them so memorable is how damn quotable they are.

Which of these fantasy classics would you say is the most quotable?

https://www.imdb.com/poll/ASW0QgWgHd8/

(trilogies or series aren't included because they're not quotable but because it would be either unfair to put them in the same balance of judgment with stories that have only "one" cinematic offering or difficult to pick which opus of the saga is the most quotable to be considered the right representative)

Lol, no offense Act1, but sometimes you make yourself sound like a robot. 

I don't know why my list is private indeed, I didn't click anywhere special... would be glad to know how to "deprivatize" it.

As for the ??

Yes, the first part isn't clear, I meant that the poll won't be about series, and to define what a series is, we'll stick... well, I know it's badly chosen word, I'll rephrase

ElMo, it seems for the moment that all newly created lists are defaulting to private. You have to do the settings thing and make them public. Don't know why the change, but on my last 4 creations I noticed the "Padlock Icon" and switched the list to public before posting the Poll Suggestion.
Cheers

I suggest Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!  
Do not cite the Deep Magic to me, Witch - for I was there when it was written.

It's like a dream... or a dream of a dream.

Mmm I'm afraid it steps into the 'trilogy' category...

Okay, but just so you know these are just from the first film; none from the second to third.

The Wizard of Oz (1939)
Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too!
I'm melting! Melting! Oh, what a world! What a world!
Lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!

Yellow Submarine is also a great fantasy movie, not a series, and was highly quotable by radio-stations ;)
Elm, it would be great to see Monsters Inc. as well in this poll.

It's still not a trilogy and I don't even think the two films should be compared let alone connected one to another... I can't zap The Mask, t would be like rejecting The Wizard of Oz because of Return to Oz. I think there should be an element of deliberate continuity from the first film's makers to accept the second as a sequel. There are certainly counter-examples but I don't have any in mind in fantasy genre.

It's just a suggestion, but perhaps you should replace Monty Python and the Holy Grail with Life of Brian ("biggus dickus" - just saying)
