Lovely idea!  :D  (Sorry, didn't mean to turn into a 1800s British Lord of a manor there)
I'll give my Top 3, just in case you decide to make it a Top 3 poll.  :)

1. "Yer too stupid to have a good time!" - John Dalton, Roadhouse
2. "I ain't got time to bleed." - Blain, Predator
3. "Do not cite the deep magic to me, Witch!  I was there when it was written." - Aslan, The Lion, the                                                                                                                         Witch, and the Wardrobe

My most beloved quote is from a german dub, it doesn't appear in the English version of
'The Good, The Bad & The Ugly':
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060196/

It's when Blondi left Tuco allone in the dessert. In the American version, he shouts something like: "You're the son of a wh*re !". In the German dub he shouts: "Der Blitz soll  Dich beim Scheissen treffen !!!", which means something like "Lightening should strike you while you sh*t !"

I still know, when the first version of that movie came out on bluray in Germany, this quote was left out. The fans did a real sh*itstorm to the studio. Then Fox asked the fans how they want their disc and did it correct for the fans. There was also another quote cut, which was restored withe the new release, which is perfect now! Here is my most beloved movie quote (at the end of the clip, time: 25seconds, someting like that):

Not all of the sh*itstorm was about the dub, most of it was about "ironing" the picture until there is no single grain. It looked like a DVD-version without optical details, the resolution of the film-material was lost. So they re-scanned the celluloid material more professional and now it has a real great resolution. But never change the dub of a classic! In Germany it is definitely not wanted !

For this type of suggestion? If it doesn't contain any overlap in options? It should be fine as is. It should be considered pointless to add new options to the older version (given how long it has been relatively inactive voting wise).

Just label this a part 2 and acknowledge the other one with a link.

I think that poll is different since it was about our favorite quote from our favorite movie. This poll asks for our favorite movie quote overall.

Ok, so another one:
'Cape Fear' (1991):
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101540/
Lawyer scene:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vO-XDUiRqU
Quote:

"Councelor? ... Councelor? ... Is that you? ... Come out! ... Councelor! Come out, come out, where ever you are!" - or better:

"I am like God, and God like me. I am as large as god. He is as small as I. He cannot above me, nor I beneath him be. Silesius, 17th century."

Very impressive scene by Robert De Niro.

If you think an incorrect quote is gonna get by Peter, think again.
Your quote Was from Godfather Part 3.
Please be accurate.
Polls require accuracy.

Network (1976)

It's really hard to decide between a few close contenders, which would've been different depending on mood and day anyway: 
Le samouraï (1967): "There is no greater solitude than that of the samurai unless it is that of the tiger in the jungle... Perhaps..."
Videodrome (1983): "Death to the Videodrome! Long live the new flesh!"
The Running Man (1986): "I'm not into politics. I'm into survival."
Color of Night (1994): "Always guess the cliche, and you won't be disappointed".
Donnie Darko (2001): "Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?"
Glass (2019): "Belief in oneself is contagious. We give each other permission to be superheroes. We will never awaken otherwise. Whoever these people are who don't want us to know the truth, today, they lose".

These are pretty close to random but they're the best I can do ... from my faulty memory.
Brody: You're gonna need a bigger boat. Jaws (1975)

and

Captain Renault: I'm shocked! Shocked to find that gambling is going on in here.
[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much. Casablanca (1942)


Honorable mention to almost any quote from Airplane! (1980)

This quote was at the end for the first movie. I don't know, if it was repeated in second part, but originally was said at the end of part 1. (Doc Brown) Look at this:

Cool Hand Luke (1967)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061512/reference
A laid back Southern man is sentenced to two years in a rural prison, but refuses to conform.
Paul Newman ... Luke
Strother Martin ... Captain
 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061512/quotes
Captain: What we've got here is... failure to communicate.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061512/quotes/qt0303196
 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061512/trivia
When the famous line "What we've got here is a failure to communicate"
is originally spoken by the Captain (Strother Martin), he omits the "a";
but when Luke (Paul Newman) repeats the line at the end while in the church,
he says "a failure to communicate."
Thus, the line can be quoted correctly with or without the "a".
 
The line "What we've got here is failure to communicate"
was voted as the number eleven movie quote by the American Film Institute.

My favorite quote is a dialogue, from The Secret of Santa Vittoria (1969), though it may be too long to include here:

Babbaluche: (Under heavy rain) Exchange the prayers for the sun, Padre.
Priest: There are no prayers for sun. People always pray for rain.
Babbaluche: When Noah was in the ark, people prayed for rain?
Priest: That was before organised religion.
Babbaluche: Sure, all they had was God, the poor bastards.


other favorites:

1 - I'm having an old friend for dinner. (from The Silence of the Lambs (1991) )

2 - Boards don't hit back. (Bruce Lee in Enter The Dragon (1973) )

3 - If I hadn't been very rich, I could've been a really great man. (Citizen Kane (1941), perhaps the most quote-rich film ever)

4 - Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock. (from The Third Man (1949) )

Also:

5- Customs official: Anything to declare?
Avi: Yeah. Don't go to England. (from Snatch (2000)


6 - Major Race: Is that your wife?
Lt. Col. Hyde: Yes.
Major Race: Is she dead?
Lt. Col. Hyde: No, no. I regret to say the bitch is still going strong. (from The League of Gentlemen (1960) )

7 - Bear Claw: Was it worth all the trouble?
Jeremiah Johnson: What trouble? (From Jeremiah Johnson (1972), this may be the best quote of them all, but you really need to see the whole movie to appreciate it)

8 - You slut. (from Tootsie (1982) )


9 - Your mother sucks *** in hell. (From The Exorcist (1973) I'd really like to be there to witness audiences seeing that scene)

10 - (After just meeting in prison) Jesus Ramirez: They accused me of robbing several banks. But, no way! I was drunk and all; but, I'm positive I only robbed one bank. How about you?
Skip Donahue: Oh, my friend and I were doing this song and dance act...
Jesus Ramirez: Oh, must have been pretty bad. (from Stir Crazy (1980) )

and

11 - They call me Mister Tibbs! (from In The Heat of The Night (1967) )

12- What would you like, Charlie?
-Everything. (from The Italian Job (1969) )

13 - Deserve's got nothing to do with it. (from Unforgiven (1992) )

Sorry for overdoing it, but I can't stop when it comes to quotes.

I have so many and I couldn't decide but I've got them narrowed down to three. Please feel free to choose one.

The Florida Project:
"You know why this is my favorite tree? 'Cause it's tipped over, and it's still growing."

Henry & June:
I've done the vilest things -- the foulest things -- but I've done them... superbly.

(I'm probably leaning most toward this one, below, right now.)
To Kill a Mockingbird:
"I was to think of these days many times. Of Jem, and Dill, and Boo Radley, and Tom Robinson, and Atticus. He would be in Jem's room all night, and he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning."
