Poll: "Say 'Hello' To Our Big Al!"

Today is the 77th birthday of A Pal Icon: Al Pacino. On this occasion, I thought of asking which of the classic characters he played is the most iconic... but I guess it would have inevitably turned the poll to a "Corleone vs. Montana" face-off, interesting but predictable.

Now, how about exploring one of the most defining aspect of his cinematic legacy: quotability. Indeed, Al Pacino is probably one of the most quotable actors of his generation with so many sayings, shouts, warnings, shouts, yells and screams again and last but not least, speeches that forever enriched Pop-Culture.

So, even if you're not a fan of the actor, if you could pick just one, which is your favorite from these 35 Al Pacino's memorable quotes? (one that doesn't come from a speech or a monologue except if it's a conclusion that can be considered a classic quote in its own right?)

Keep your choice close, your vote closer and discuss the poll here

PS: 60% of the list still belongs to his two most legendary roles : 12 quotes from Michael Corleone and 9 from Tony Montana
