Poll: Classic (but Unfinished) Quotes

Wait a minute, you ain't heard nothing yet... you think some quotes are memorable because they perfectly captured the spirit of a scene or a movie, well, you're right. But if you think this is a credit to the writers, you couldn't be more wrong.

Actually, the credit goes to the editors who knew exactly where to cut, or when to put a soundtrack loud enough to cover the rest of the sentence.

Now, exclusively, here are the classic movie quotes as you should have heard them if it wasn't for the editors' foresight, regardless of the ridiculous impact they would have on the film had they been kept, which one do you find the most interesting in a funny or not-so-implausible way?
