A while back, the Guinness Book of Records declared that "Bond -- James Bond" was the all-time most-famous movie phrase. Second was "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine" from "Casablanca." Third was "It's not the men in your life that counts, it's the life in your men," from a Mae West flicker.

Aside from the impeccable choice of the Bond slogan, would the person on the street think of the other two right away as among the most memorable film words? I'm not so sure. Off the top of my head I can think of crisper, better-known quotes from "Casablanca" and the Mae West films:

-- "Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By.'" -- Casablanca

-- "Round up the usual suspects." -- Casablanca

-- " . . . This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." -- Casablanca

-- "Come up and see me." -- Mae West

There are lots of terrific, pithy quotes that could compete. What with the "100 Greatest Films" and "100 Greatest Books" lists that have surfaced recently to great controversy, maybe we should do our own thinking on these topics. I don't know what else was on the Guinness list, but here are some of my choices for movie quotes that have struck chords in us over the years:

-- "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." -- Gone With the Wind
