Interesting idea.

I think "deformed" is not really the word to use here.

Maybe:
- improved quotes
- edited quotes
- revised quotes

I think I like revised best. Maybe someone else has a better idea.

Thanks Jen,
I had a doubt about "deformed" too.
Those are clearly not "improved"
"edited" Yes, but...
So I will go with "revised"  :D

Great idea for a poll! 

James Rolfe did a great video on that subject, by the way.

I made a  few changes to the list,(with 2 new lines)
*I will look for you, I will find you, and I will marry you.
(Best way to propose via phone)
-Taken 2008
*You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Will you marry me?' Well, will ya punk?
(Clint Eastwood really proposed to Andrew Robinson using this line.)
 -Dirty Harry 1971
Can someone with admin rights update the post with changes? :)

Sorry, my bad - the Dark Knight one should be "why so single" (why so serious)

And I think a better way to use "show me the ring" - your response when proposed to without ring

Out of the others I put forth that you haven't used, these are my favorites:

Magic Mirror on the wall, will you/who will marry me next Fall? - Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
Go ahead, make my wedding day! - Dirty Harry
The greatest trick I'll ever pull is convincing you to marry me. - The Usual Suspects
I'm single as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore! - Network

I took that legendary quote from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and change it into "I am your future husband. Search your feelings, you know it to be true!"
If you had any other Yoda quotes in mind let me know. :)

Ah, that explains why there wasn't any clear evidence. Yoda talks a lot about patience in Empire, but I couldn't recall that exact quote. 

That Vader quote is excellent! :)

Finally I made up my mind. Description of the thread should be changed to
"Which one of these altered famous movie quotes will you use to propose to your partner?"Since I have no admin rights can someone change it for me please.  O_o

The Shining one doesn't really work. Or maybe I need it explained because I don't get it.

Scarface could "be yelled at the top of your lungs, with the spittle flying out of your mouth."

Snow White - I think it could be better as "Magic Mirror on the wall, who will marry me next Fall? (Use this if you have absolutely no romantic prospects - the mirror will do the rest)"

And Goodfellas would be better more like the original quote - "As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a bridegroom."

Jen,
I'm not with you on Goodfellas quote and snow white one.
"always wanted to be a bridegroom" doesn't really works because that doesn't define which person you're marrying into.
And I agree, Snow White one rhymes better that way but it will not be a proposal line anymore..I added Shining one just for fun and it doesn't make any sense to me neither. :D.
I don't think someone will ever use these lines on real life occasions, so don't put so much thought into it. ;)

Bridgegroom is another word for groom - I suggested it because it is two words and works for having the same syllables at the original line.

In number 6, “if your guts fall out“ — do you mean something like “if your courage fails you”?

How about this. I think it’s easier to understand:

(Use a very crowded place and if you can’t find the words, just shout this out very loudly. Your partner will find out.)

It's a great list so far, but I think #1 and #14 might be considered too violent. Perhaps you could remove them?

Also, I noticed some typos:

#9: Let's put a ring on that hand
#12: I guess it comes down to a simple choice
#16: ... put this ring on your finger ...
#17: (This one is posted without the approval of Martin Scorsese)
#27: (Use this if you aren't prepared to propose but your partner has found out)

'Very creative and witty poll, Mr. Tharindu!

Unless you changed your username, I haven't seen you around here before so hello and welcome. :)
