The best movie lines of all time

Last week famed director and writer Aaron Sorkin told paparazzi that he thinks the best movie line from all time is from Steven Spielberg's Jaws: "We're going to need a bigger boat."

Ever since, The Dori Monson Show has debated the best movie line of all time, and they decided to settle it with a quiz. Listeners called to give their vote for best movie lines of all time and Dori, Jake, Ursula, and Erynn battled it out to see how many they could guess.

Take the quiz and see how many best movie line nominees you can identify:

1. "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."

4. "Go ahead, make my day."

5. "Nobody puts baby in a corner."

6. "You had me at hello."

10. "Leave the gun. Take the cannoli."'

11. "Here's looking at you, kid."
