Hollywood, don't even think about remaking or rebooting this classics! Or else, you're going to be in big trouble! Sometimes you just can't beat the original, so why even try? These movies (1999-below) are best well-known to be a classic and proved to be untouchable because it already have all of its perfection we we're looking for in a film. Do you remember when Hollywood decided to remake Hitchcock’s “Psycho”, one of the greatest film of all time, and it fails because it never captures the greatness of its original? Well, we hoped that these films won’t have the same fate like that one. Which of these classic films you don't want Hollywood to remake or reboot it? Note: I’m excluding animated films like “Toy Story” and franchises that have inspired spinoffs or expanded universes like “Star Wars.” And I’m also excluding classic films that already have a remake, like “Psycho”.

Here is a compilation of 35 quotes from the most quotable show of all-time, all of them referencing a film (well, sometimes, it's more about the book or the titular character, but I couldn't resist!). Some are funny in a clever way, some are hilariously nonsensical, some are so obscure it can takes years to get them...from the cane of "Citizen Kane" to Lionel Hutz' suit against "The Neverending Story" for false advertizing, from Homer sending a fan-letter to "Die Hard" to Bart's friends strangely enthusiastic for sneaking into "Barton Fink", which of these quotes 'd'oh!' you think is the funniest?
