Remember when Christine O'Donnell solemnly looked into our eyes and declared, "I'm not a witch"? That little gem has topped (well, tied for tops) 2010's list of most memorable quotes, according to the Yale Book of Quotations. Giving O'Donnell a run for her money was Tony Hayward's "I'd like my life back" lament, reports the AP. Among others:

  1. "If you touch my junk, I'm gonna have you arrested." passenger John Tyner to TSA worker at San Diego airport, Nov. 13
  2. "Don't retreat. Instead _ reload!" Sarah Palin, tweet, March 23

  1. "Chi! Chi! Chi! Le! Le! Le! Los mineros de Chile!" Chant at Chilean mine rescue, Oct. 13
  2. "I hope that's not where we're going, but you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies. They're saying: My goodness, what can we do to turn this country around?" Sharron Angle, interview in January
  3. "We have to pass the (health care) bill so you can find out what is in it." Nancy Pelosi, speech to National Association of Counties, March 9
  4. "I'm going to take my talents to South Beach." LeBron James, television broadcast, July 8
