There was madness in any direction, at any hour. You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

Lots of good ones mentioned: Dumb & Dumber, Anchorman, Airplane, Austin Powers, The Big Lebowski, Christmas Vacation, etc. Two I didn't see mentioned that I quote all the time are The Sandlot and Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
