Great compilation. But I can't believe they left out "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son."

Can't believe how many of these I have used over the years.

I don't have time to watch the video right now, but I've always been fond of this exchange from The Hudsucker Proxy:

Sidney J. Mussburger: Let's get to know one another, shall we? Let's chat man to man. Now you're from the basement, aren't you? And weren't blessed with much... education?
Norville Barnes: Well, I am college graduate.
Sidney J. Mussburger: But you didn't excel in your studies?
Norville Barnes: Well, I made the Dean's List.
Sidney J. Mussburger: Oh.
Norville Barnes: At the Muncie College of Business Administration.
Sidney J. Mussburger: [laughs] Oh. And your friends called you "jerk" didn't they?
Norville Barnes: No.
Sidney J. Mussburger: Dope? Dipstick? Lamebrain? Schmoe? Not even behind you back?
Norville Barnes: No, as a matter of fact they voted me most likely to succeed.
Sidney J. Mussburger: You're fired.

Another great one from the same movie:

Amy Archer: I used to think you were a swell guy. Well, to be honest, I thought you were an imbecile. But then I figured out you WERE a swell guy... A little slow, maybe, but a swell guy. Well, maybe you're not so slow, but you're not so swell either. And it looks like you're an imbecile after all!

Hahaha! I love the Hudsucker Proxy. Jennifer Jason Leigh is terrific in it.

+1. She steals every scene she's in in that movie ("in in" looks funny, but sounds right when you say it). She knocked it out of the park with her performance. The movie itself is criminally overlooked and underrated by movie goers in general. I suspect most Coen Brothers' fans know it and love it, however.

Finally had time to watch the video. It's pretty hilarious, though I wish they'd stuck to just picking one clip per movie. A handful of movies came up over and over again.
