All good mentions so far. Office space is up there for me as well.

And groundhog day. "don't drive angry!"

I think Monty Python's Holy Grail has got to be up there in the top 5.
 
"It's really a matter of weight ratios" (About sparrows not being able to carry coconuts to England).
 
"Count to 3; three is the number to which you shall count..." (Holy hand grenade).
 
But airplane is definitely up there as well.
 
"The white zone is for loading and unloading only, no parking in the red zone." and "I speak jive." are two of my favorite lines.

Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels? I'm a Guy Ritchie fanboy, though.
 
Eddie: You could choke a dozen donkeys on that! And you're haggling over one hundred pound? What're you doing when you're not buying stereos Nick? Finance revolutions?
Nick the Greek: 100 pound is still 100 pound.
Tom: Not when the price is 200 pound it ain't! And certainly not when you've got Liberia's deficit in your skyrocket. Tighter than a duck's butt you are. Now, lemme feel the fibre of your fabric.

i felt like i needed to be british to "get it."
don't get me wrong, i've generally liked all of Ritchie's movies.
but, sometimes had trouble even understanding what they were saying.  whether purposely (brad pitt) or not (sherlock holmes).

English isn't my native tongue, I don't understand much of what they say in this movie...it's a great exercise to improve my cockney understanding skills, but sadly I still suck at it. But the movie's brilliant, OMG.

Joe Dirt is a big one at work. The Big Lebowski is another one just in general.
