Because you can watch a movie repeatedly and enjoy quotes in context, video and DVD is a great way to enjoy films with famous movie lines. "All About Eve" has arguably the sharpest dialogue in any film. Here are some of my favorite movie quotes from "All About Eve."

Margo Channing (Bette Davis)

"Fasten your seat belts. It's going to be a bumpy night."

(This is the film's most famous line. It is often misquoted as "... a bumpy ride.")

Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter)

"If there's nothing else, there's applause. I've listened backstage to people applaud. It's like … like waves of love coming over the footlights."

Margo Channing (Bette Davis)

"Funny business, a woman's career. The things you drop on your way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you'll need them when you get back to being a woman."

Addison DeWitt (George Sanders)

"You're maudlin and full of self-pity. You're magnificent!"
