/ were gonna need a bigger boat!
Ill start with jaws.
"Were gonna need a bigger boat"
"Squeal like a piggy".
What do you mean it's not every day?
You sure got a purty Mouth.
Say hello to my little friend...
It's sterile and I like the taste.

Groovy! [evil dead 2/army of darkness]
Not a phrase film a film as such but an expression that intrigued me enough to look it up when I first heard it was "jumping the shark". For those that don't know, this was first used to describe the scene in Happy Days when Fonzie jumps over a shark on water-skis. The point of the expression being that you can identify that as the moment when you know it's all downhill and quality inevitably declines. It gets used more and more widely nowadays.
I wondered if the shark references in Anchorman 2 were a deliberate nod in that direction...
"I'll be back"
I feel the need, the need for speed...
Actually, all these are just quotable phrases. The OP's one - "we're gonna need a bigger boat" is actually quite unusual as people do genuinely use it to describe actual situations, not just when kidding around with mates.
I'll be back....
rats, too slow!
Now updated with 'nuking the fridge' (a la Indiana Jones and the Zimmer of Doom, or whatever it was called)
"I'll have whatever she's having"
"I'm sitting down to enjoy my holiday"
"We've got a full tank of gas...."
Another one, "Call that a knife", "This is a knife"
OK, how about "I don't think we're in Kansas any more"?
Pretty much every time it all goes t1ts up.....
From Zoolander: "I knew it was a JOKE, I just didn't GET it right away..." sees regular use around our way.
Also, from the same film, "I think I'm getting the black lung - it's not very well ventilated down there" if anyone coughs weedily...
Not heard that one until now. I specifically avoided the later Indiana Jones films and missed the actual scene but, having just looked it up, I can see why it made the impact it did.

I am your Father
These arent the Droids youre Looking for
Use the Force Luke

We've gone on holiday by mistake!
I've only had a few ales...
There must and shall be aspirin!
We want the finest wines available to humanity, we want them here and we want them now!
What a f*cking epic film... must be up there with the top quote spawners.
Usually said on encountering someone who hasn't been out for a pint in a while.
"Houston, we have a problem".
And of course - 'That's no moon... It's a space station'
'Royale with cheese'
And a personal favourite - 'There can be only one'
But it isn't from a film, sorry.

I'm not sure this has made its way into normal parlance.....which was what this thread was supposed to be about ;)
"Blessed are the cheese makers", I use this when ever I'm sat in a meeting and the person to the side of me asks what has just been said.
Don't cross the streams - ghost busters. A phrase with many uses.
There must and shall be aspirin or I shall die here on this f*cking mountainside!
Scrubbers! Scrubbers! Little tarts, they love it!
Both from WIthnail and I and well used lines where I come from!
"Say my name...I SAID SAY MY NAME!"
That explains a lot, I seem to go through life with people making strange comments, that mean nothing to me( as 99% of the ' everyday phrases' on here do)

"Hold on lads, I've got an idea"
"Do ya feel lucky, well do ya?"
"Nooo gohrammit ah sayad the sheriff is a ~dong~" From blazing saddles.
Also, not a quote but a gesture, in response to over elaborate provocation a weary finger pistol shooting a la Indiana Jones.
This was a genuine conversation with someone who was a bit ditzy in the Kings house pub on new years day 1999 prior to driving back to Sheffield;
Me: I'm knackered, driving back is going to be tough.
Tim: We'll probably have to use the force Luke,
Ditzy: a forceluke? What's one of those?
Me: It's something a bit like cruise control.
Ditzy (to boyfriend) that sounds great, has our car got a forceluke?
Boyfriend: ~inaudible sobs~
Im not even Supposed to be here today.
Put it Back you tubby bitch.
Many years ago the wife and I were watching the most awful 1950s war film on telly.
The acting and dialogue were terrible. In one scene, this soldier was at the front, on his belly, under heavy fire, explosions all around, and he called over his shoulder, 'Hurry up with those machine guns", as if he were asking someone to pass the salt.
We both collapsed laughing, and since then, whenever we see awful dialogue or acting, we often chant, simultaneously, 'Hurry up with those machine guns"!
I chose not to choose Life.

I think thats a misquote that was never said in a film?
First rule of fight club

Several websites say a variation of the line appeared that same year in the novel (not the film version) of THE GRAPES OF WRATH: chapter 18 reportedly has the line "I know this man -- a man got to do what he got to do."

I don't think we've had this one yet, which if true is a shocking omission:

One of this few phrases on this thread that has actually passed into common usage.
