Aussie films have given us some of the greatest quotes that have ingrained themselves into our everyday vernacular:

"That's not a knife. That's a knife"

"That'll do pig, that'll do"

"Tell him he's dreamin'"

And one we've been echoing for 26 years, "You're terrible, Muriel." 

Sure, Toni Collette may have had the leading role in Muriel's Wedding, but it was Gabby Milgate who delivered the iconic line from the 1994 film, but she recently revealed it almost never made it to the big screen.

Milgate recently explained "I was sure it was going to be cut from the movie...It was Jill Bilcock (editor of the film) who convinced him (P.J. Hogan, Director of the film), that it was something he should keep, because when you see things over and over again they kind of lose their magic."
