    Famous Movie Lines

    What do you think would be the most famous movie line of all time? If I asked you right now what are the first 3 to come into your mind what would they be and in what order did you think of them?

    Ill put mine in white so they don't pop into your head first.








    For me its:

    1) "Ill be back" from The Terminator

    2) "No, I am your father" from Star Wars

    3) Shaken. Not stirred from many a James Bond movie



    I know there are many others out there but off the top of my head those are first. While typing those "Willsssooonnn" came to mind from Castaway and "This is Sparta" from 300.

    Yours are good, but just to be different, and since you said most famous not favorite, I'll go:

    1. Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn

    2. Here's lookin' at you, kid

    3. I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog, too

    Maybe top five famous ones (although no one will ever agree on something like this... And not sure how you can't have a line from The Godfather...)

    "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."

    "Rosebud."

    "I coulda been a contender!"

    "You lookin at me?"

    "Toto, don't think we're in Kansas anymore."

    Favorite?

    "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick I'm a real wanker for saying this.I'm a real wanker for saying this.I'm a real wanker for saying this.... And I'm all out of bubble gum."

    (Seriously with the filter, DBR?)


    Btw, anyone know how to highlight to reveal white words on an ipad? Doesn't seem to work for me.

    I copied and pasted it into the notebook. You could also reply with quote and scroll up to look at it.

    I had the same GWTW one as you. I picked one from Wizard of Oz, too, but a slightly different one. I think yours is better. There are so many quotes from Oz and GWTW and Casablanca, I'm not sure how to pick.

    My favorite is probably, "Yippee ki yay, m..... f....r"

    Gus, I just love the line

    Bjorn, I almost put "Here's looking at you, kid" but ended up not going with it. Not sure if my choice was correct. The "I'll get you, my pretty" is pretty damn famous.

    "I'm going to make him an offer..." is a REAL solid one. Can't believe I didn't think of it.


    Hey, can you nominate entire scenes of dialogue? If so, there are two scenes from "True Romance" that are, to me, two of my favorite scenes in history. I won't say which, because I'd be curious if anyone else can nail them

    I assume one is the Dennis Hopper / Christopher Walken exchange that end's with "so tell me, am I lying?". What is the other?

    I think we're devolving into our favorite lines, versus most famous. For most famous, I can't believe I forgot "Go ahead, make my day." I see toughbuff got that one though.

    As for Oz, there's one that's become so much a part of our culture that we don't even think of it as a movie line anymore: There's no place like home.

    Don't forget The Godfather. You could do an entire list on any one of those four movies standing alone.



    As for me, here's a favorite line that I drop into conversation any time it dawns on me that a problem I'm facing or a task that I have to complete is much larger than originally anticipated:

    "We're gonna need a bigger boat."

    (Did you know that this line -- in the movie, it's actually You're gonna need a bigger boat" -- was an ad-lib?)

    Famous? I'm not sure. But here's a favorite:
    "All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die."

    And looking forward to Christmas:
    "You'll shoot your eye out, kid."

    I always thought it was "What we have here is failure to communicate".
