Best movie scene: Glengarry Glen Ross (1992):
Blake (Alec Baldwin): What's the problem, pal?
Dave Moss (Ed Harris): You -
[correcting him]
Dave Moss: Moss. You're such a hero, you're so rich, how come you're coming down here wasting your time with such a bunch of bums?
Blake: You see this watch? You see this watch?
Dave Moss: Yeah.
Blake: That watch costs more than your car. I made $970,000 last year. How much you make? You see pal, that's who I am, and you're nothing. Nice guy? I don't give a sh*t. Good father? F**k you! Go home and play with your kids. You wanna work here - close! You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you **********? You can't take this, how can you take the abuse you get on a sit? You don't like it, leave.

Best TV show quote: 30 Rock.
Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin): My mother tried to send me to Vietnam to make a man out of me……..I was 12.

"The answer is yes"

(said in a beautiful moment when no question had been asked; this is a movie about Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas from the 80s, can't remember the name without searching).

Two Quotes from the 1998 Movie "You've Got Mail"
(Maybe neither as funny or even as profound as some that are posted here, but meaningful and a great use of words in each scene)...

1) Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan)- "Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life, well... small but valuable, and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it? Or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of what I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So, good night, dear void."

2) Joe Fox (Tom Hanks)-"The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever, to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don't know what the hell they are doing, or who on earth they are, can for only $2.95, can get not just a cup of coffee, but an absolutely defining sense of self. Tall, Decaf, Cappucino.
Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) [Exits}...
Next customer in line, says: "Tall, Decaf, Cappucino!"

The all-time most quotable movies are:

Ghostbusters
Young Frankenstein
Monty Python's Quest For The Holy Grail
Animal House

Memorize those four movies, and you'll have a quote handy for any and ever happening in life.
