"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn,"

.....named No. 1 movie quote .
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Neither the Godfather nor 007 can top Rhett Butler when it comes to being the most quotable character in the movies.

Results were released on Tuesday in a television show that aired on the CBS network.

"I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse" from 1972's "The Godfather" was No. 2, and Marlon Brando, who spoke those words, also claimed No. 3 with his line from 1954's "On the Waterfront:" "You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could've been somebody instead of a bum, which is what I am."

The American Film Institute, a top U.S. film education group, annually conducts a poll of favorite movie moments, genres and characters. This year, AFI asked some 1,500 creative industry professionals for their favorite quote.
How can "Say `hello' to my little friend!", "Scarface," be number 61 on their list? It is one of my top 5.
