"Here's Looking at You, Kid," "Show Me the Money!" "I'll Be Back" and Hundreds More Vie for the Title of "Movie Quote of the Century"

AFI�S 100 YEARS� 100 MOVIE QUOTES: AMERICA'S GREATEST QUIPS, COMEBACKS AND CATCHPHRASES, a new entertainment special saluting the greatest lines of dialogue spoken in American movies, will be broadcast in June of 2005 on the CBS Television Network. During the broadcast, the confidential list of 100 phrases will be revealed by some of Hollywood�s biggest stars.

This will be the eighth annual special in the AFI�s centennial celebration of American cinema, following the seven critically acclaimed Network specials: "AFI�s 100 Year� 100 Movies," "AFI�s 100 Years� 100 Stars," "AFI�s 100 Years� 100 Laughs," "AFI�s 100 Years� 100 Thrills," "AFI�s 100 Years� 100 Passions", "AFI�s 100 Years� 100 Heroes & Villains" and "AFI's 100 Years� 100 Songs," which annually spark a national discussion of America�s film history among movie-lovers across the nation.

Today, AFI distributed a ballot with the names of 400 nominated movie quotes to a jury of over 1,500 leaders in the creative community, including film artists (directors, screenwriters, actors, editors, cinematographers), critics and historians.

The jury will be asked to choose up to 100 movie quotes from a comprehensive list that includes "Here's looking at you, kid," from "Casablanca," "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn," from "Gone with the Wind," "Why don't you come up sometime and see me?" from "She Done Him Wrong," "May the Force be with you," from "Star Wars," "Houston, we have a problem," from "Apollo 13," "Snap out of it!" from "Moonstruck," "You can't handle the truth!" from "A Few Good Men," "I'll be back," from "The Terminator" and "Show me the money!" from "Jerry McGuire." Due to the extensive number of memorable movie lines in American film, jurors may also write in votes for up to five quotes, which may not already appear on the ballot.

The jurors have been asked to consider the following criteria in making their selections:

MOVIE QUOTE: A statement, phrase of brief exchange of dialogue spoken in an American Film. * (Lyrics from songs are not eligible.)

CULTURAL IMPACT: Movie quotes that viewers use in their own lives and situations, thus circulating through popular culture and becoming part of the national lexicon.

LEGACY: Movie quotes that viewers use to evoke the memory of a treasured film, thus ensuring and enlivening its historical legacy.

*AFI defines an American film as an English language motion picture with significant creative and/or financial production elements from the United States. Additionally, only movie quotes from feature-length American films released before January 1, 2004 will be considered. AFI defines a feature-length film as a motion picture of narrative format that is typically over 60 minutes in length.
