I think I saw a porno like that once.

This is New York. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.
Fight Club... and they only choose the first rule? WTF?
"I want you to hit me as hard as you can..."
"You are NOT YOUR FUCKING KHAKIS!"

more to follow ;)
From going through their set - there are way too many missing to even list.
One thing I did notice is that a lot of the quotes really need context - many of them tend to not make _any_ sense without it. Also, I found myself disagreeing with most of the choices of what they took from any given movie.
"I have a bad feeling about this," is too obvious, too casual, too likely to actually be said in casual conversation without the sayer aware that he or she is quoting anything. It's the delivery, not the line, that makes it memorable. In theory, it ought to be the line only that makes a good quote, but in practice, it takes a combination--and "I have a bad feeling about this" isn't unique.
Considering that they chose things such as "All-righty then," I don't think this criteria for elimination is valid under their rules.
"I want to go to Brighton!"
They're missing Major League and 2001: A Space Oddysey.
"I'm sorry, Dave. I can't do that."
HOW could they leave that out?!
The line is "Are my eyes really brown?"
Sorry to be nit-picky. But they don't call me 'Fionn the Tetrapyloctomete' for nothing.
I was just about to say about to say that! Consider the nit judiciously picked..
"I'm shocked, SHOCKED to learn there is gambling going on in this establishment!"
"It's not my fault!" from Star Wars (all of them), and "I don't have time to discuss this in a committee, Princess." "I am not a committee!"
There were more that I was thinking about, but I can't remember them now.

"Sort this, deliver that... I'll make them all pay..."
"Quick! Get the baking soda!"
"Let's see, Shatner, Shatner... nope, doesn't look like he's in this one. We're safe."
"Should I tell Ruth she has an extra rib?"
"Puppet wranglers? There weren't any puppets in this movie..."
Oh believe me. I have more.
I didn't see ANYTHING from Spinal Tap. I even did a search using the Edit function.
"But these go to 11."
"It's such a fine line between stupid and clever."
"Let's go, let's go! Mime is money!"
"It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none. None more black."
"These go to 11" is legendary because after the movie came out, Marshall Amplifiers actually began making amps that went to 11.
These go to 11
is on the list.
(I read through it)
Okay, I'm too lazy too actually go look at the list, so now I'm paranoid that I'll mention one that's already there...
But, for my money, you can't beat:
"Are you William Blake?"
"Yes... have you read my poetry?"
(from "Dead Man")

"And this- is my BOOM stick!"
Or another one of my favorites....
"I'm a frog."

"The next one of you primates... even *touches* me..."
Leave the gun. Take the cannolis.
That's actually on the list.
