25 more famous English movie quotes

The previous week's post on the 25 most famous English movie quotes was quite popular, so here are a few more.

These movie lines are not quite as well-known as the first group, but a lot of people will recognize them. 

  1. “I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries (Monty Python and the Holy Grail).

  3. “Yippee-kay-yay, motherfucker.” (Die Hard)

    "Yippee-kay-yay" is an expression of excitement that cowboys and people like that used in the Wild West in American history. This action hero has added a modern twist to it.
