Move over "You're not in Guatemala now, Dr Ropata" - there's a new top Shorty quote.

An already infamous line from Shortland Street's longest running character Chris Warner has been voted the 2017 Quote of the Year.

Massey University said the line garnered 18 percent of the more than 7,000 votes cast during the competition.

The words were uttered by Dr Warner after his teenage son Harry was caught sexting his girlfriend.

The quote went viral earning a dance remix and getting featured on American chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The runner up line went to "It’s deeply disappointing, but it’s not gay" from Rainbow Youth's PSA campaign.

Other nominees included Jacinda Ardern referring to climate change as "my generation's nuclear movement" and Winston Peters referring to Gareth Morgan as a "toothless sheep".

Last year, the prize was won by former Green MP Denise Roche, who, in retaliation to Brian Tamaki's suggestions that gay sex caused earthquakes, said: "Sex just can't be that good".
