Question 1 of 45

“Love means never having…”

Love Story revolves around the blossoming romance of Jennifer (played by Ali McGraw) and Oliver (played by Ryan O'Neal) who come from very different backgrounds. In this memorable scene, Jennifer talks about how there is no reason to feel sorry about anything when two people are in love through the quote.

“Ogres are like…”

In this scene of DreamWorks' animated masterpiece Shrek, our beloved ogre (played Mike Myers) tries to explain to his friend Donkey (played by Eddie Murphy) that his kind are like onions, and that onions have layers that one must take time to understand. Donkey points out that not everybody likes onions.

“They may take our lives, but they’ll…”

William Wallace rallies his countrymen for battle, but they're afraid of being outnumbered by the English soldiers. This is one of the most iconic scenes of Braveheart, where Wallace delivers a monologue, reminding the men why they are out in the battlefield, encouraging them to fight not for the army, their king, or country, but fight for their freedom.

“The stuff that…”

Sam Spade (played by Humphrey Bogart) quotes this line at the tail end of the 1941 hit The Maltese Falcon, when Detective Tom Polhaus (played by Ward Bond) picks up the Falcon asks Spade what it is. Spade then looks at Brigid O'Shaughnessy (played by Mary Estor) one last time before she is escorted.

“You’ve got…”

Regarded as one of Edgar Wright's funniest movies, Shaun of the Dead works well as a zombie apocalyptic spoof but delivers the feel of a zombie horror effect with a comic twist in every scene. The effect is replicated in the dialogues also and among one of the many memorable ones is "you've got red on you."

“Florals? For Spring?…”

There is no spec of doubt that Meryl Streep was destined to play the role ruthless Miranda Priestly, editor-in-chief of Runway magazine. The Devil Wears Prada was spearheaded by Streep's sophisticated sarcasm, and her calm yet powerful delivery of this line is one of her best moments in the film.

“Take your stinking paws off me…”

George Taylor (played by Charlton Heston) yells out this line in 1968's Planet of the Apes when he is captured and enslaved on a planet ruled by apes. He puts up a good fight before being overpowered by the ape men. The intense silence that follows certainly gives you goosebumps when all the apes surround him.

“It was Beauty …”

In this scene of 2005's King Kong, a crowd gathers after watching the mighty ape free fall from the top of the empire state building, plummeting to certain death. Two reporters discuss why the mighty ape would climb up the building only to get cornered and conclude the airplanes killed him. Denham, however, points out that it was beauty that ultimately killed the beast.

“Are you not…?”

In one of the most memorable scenes of Gladiator, Maximus (played by Russel Crowe) slashes and stabs through his opponents, after which he throws his sword into the stands and silences the crowd. Gladiator won five Oscars at the 73rd Academy Awards held in 2001, including best picture and best actor.


John Connor (played by Edward Furlong) tries to explain to the T-800 that he must listen and understand the way normal people talk by giving a few examples that would come handy in different types of situations and the line "Hasta la vista, baby!" became the trademark dialogue of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

“Why so…?”

In one of the many explanations of how the Joker got his scars, this one was the most gripping. "Why so serious?" has become synonymous with The Dark Knight, and Heath Ledger's fantastic portrayal of the Batman's arch enemy, and it's going to be a long time before someone forgets it.

“I love the smell of…”

Quoted by Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore (played by Robert Duvall) in Apocalypse Now amidst an active war field with bullets whizzing past, helicopters flying, and fires raging, he delivers this dialogue straight faced to a bunch of soldiers gathered around him. The colonel compares the smell of the gasoline to victory.

“They call it a…”

It's pretty hard to forget Vincent Vega (played by John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (played by Samuel L. Jackson) in Pulp Fiction discussing the most inconsequential of things, like what a quarter pounder with cheese is called in France. Vincent says this line to Jules while they're are on their way to finish another job.

“Go ahead…”

Clint Eastwood plays the iconic Harry Callahan in Sudden Impact, which was also directed by the actor. And it's something you'll never forget once you've watched the movie. His iconic role of Harry Callahan can be seen taunting a robber who has taken a woman hostage. Talk about a bold statement.

It’s not the years, honey…”

In one of the greatest production ventures by veteran filmmaker and Star Wars creator George Lucas, Indiana Jones (played by Harrison Ford) quotes this famous line to Marion (played by Karen Allen) when she tends to his wounds tells him he is not the man she knew 10 years ago.

“You either get busy living, or…”

The Shawshank Redemption is an iconic masterpiece with a plot ever so engaging that not once will you experience boredom throughout Morgan Freeman's narration. Based on the true story of the wrongful conviction and imprisonment of Andy Dusfrene (played by Tim Robbins), this line was the point at which Dusfrene decides to escape.

“May the Force…”

Obi-Wan Kenobi can be seen using the phrase several times during the entire film to indicate good luck and good will in all your conquests. It is one of the most popular quotes in the film's franchise and the coined term paved the way for a generation of super fans to use the phrase in real life.

“Say hello to…”

In this final scene of Scarface, Tony Montana (played by Al Pacino) waits ready with a grenade launcher after he notices his enemies have broken into the home. As the goons gather around the door, Tony launches one of the grenades yelling "say hello to my little friend" without warning that blows off the doors and takes his attackers by surprise.

“…and beyond”

This is the most memorable quote from Toy Story for one single reason, watching Buzz Lightyear attempt to fly. But all that follows is a series of mishaps involving buzz jumping off the edge of the bed, only to land on a ball, bounce back up, and find himself on a race car track that catapults him upwards. Buzz thought he was flying all by himself!

“Show me the…”

It is quite hard to miss Tom Cruise yelling on the phone in an office full of people. Jerry Maguire follows the story of a sports agent who is left with one client and his secretary to rebuild his career and make a name for himself in the cut-throat sports and athletes management business.

“Mrs. Robinson, you’re …”

This line spoken by Ben Braddock (played by Dustin Hoffman) in the movie The Graduate is often misquoted. Mrs. Robinson does not believe in subtlety and communicates directly whatever she wants. In the movie, she wants Ben. The smart man is equally direct in asking her if she is indeed trying to seduce him.

“Frankly, my dear, I…”

In Gone With the Wind, Rhett Butler (played by Clark Gable) is fed up with Scarlett O'Hara (Vivian Leigh) and decides to walk out of her life. In a desperate plea to stop him, Scarlett runs down the stairs just as Rhett opens the main door urges him to stay. The intense scene ends with Rhett quoting the line and walking out after Scarlett asks where she'll go or what she'll do.

“I’m king…!”

James Cameroon, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kate Winslet, three names that immediately come to mind when you think of Titanic. Who can forget Jack Dawson (played by DiCaprio) climb on the grill at the very front of the ship, spread his arms, and shout "I'm king of the World" in the blowing wind?


The memorable science fiction classic E.T. directed by Steven Spielberg has many notable quotes from the beloved extraterrestrial. In this scene, E.T. hands Elliot a comic strip and runs towards the window to point outside to his home, rejoins Gertie and Elliot to repeatedly say the words "E.T. phone home."

“I feel the need…”

Fighter pilots Maverick (played by Tom Cruise) and Goose (played by Anthony Edwards) are the dream duo, born and trained to fly together. One always has the other's back no matter what at Top Gun academy. In one of the scenes before taking off for some good air to air combat training, Maverick and Goose quote the line together.

“You talkin’…?”

The line was actually improvised on the set of Taxi Driver as the script only required the actor to speak to himself in front of the mirror in this scene. Travis (played by Robert De Niro) can be seen posing repeatedly with a small handgun when he pulls it out and holsters the weapon asking himself, "You talkin' to me?"


A dialogue that sent a chill down everyone's spine when Astronaut Jim Lovell confirms there is a serious problem that might jeopardize their mission, to land on the moon. Apollo 13, a mission that is often referred to as a "successful failure," wherein the astronauts never landed on the moon, but NASA was able to bring them back in a crippled command module.

“We’ll always have…”

The climax scene of the movie Casablanca also features one of the most memorable quotes of the film. When Ilsa is about to get on a plane and Rick decides not to go with her for he thinks their life will be better apart, he reminds her "We'll always have Paris". Rick assures Ilsa that they'll always be together in their memories.

“You can’t handle…”

In the heated courtroom interrogation of A Few Good Men, colonel Jessup (played by Jack Nicholson) yells the legendary quote when asked how a soldier died on his watch. There are suspicions around the fact that the colonel might have something to do with a soldier's death, and Lt. Daniel Kaffee (played by Tom Cruise) questions his actions.

“I’m gonna make him an…”

The Godfather is a Hollywood classic, period. A movie that highlight the nuances of gang wars and turfs. Even if you have not watched the movie, there is a high probability of stumbling across the quote "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse." Vito Corleone (played by Marlon Brando) certainly does an exemplary job of delivering the line that sends a chill down your spine.

“Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys…”

Professor Keating gathers his students in the hallway and asks one of them to read the first stanza from the poem "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time." Keating breaks down the stanza and explains the sentiment behind those words. He then asks the students to step forward and look at some of the faces from the past. As they lean in, he whispers the words Carpe Diem ever so softly, asking them to just seize the day.

“Elementary, ____”

In the 1939 movie of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes directed by Alfred L. Werker, the line is often spoken by the genius detective to point out the obvious to Dr. Watson. The quote taken from the books was added in the script for the movie and it was Sherlocks unusual style of delivery that made it stand out as a memorable dialogue.

“It’s alive!…!”

Perhaps one of the more intense scenes from Frankenstein is when the mad scientist Henry Frankenstein (played by Colin Clive) realizes that his creation has come to life. We can see the fingers moving and the monster lifting its hand up to which Henry is brought down to his knees repeatedly exclaiming "It's alive, it's alive!"

“You’re gonna need…”

In this hair-raising scene of Jaws, the great white appears out of nowhere while Brody (played by Roy Schieder) is busy throwing cut meat off the boat. Brody, completely taken by surprise, backs up to the control room and tells Quint (played by Robert Shaw) that he is going to need a bigger boat as the shark continues to circle around.

When you decide to be something…”

In this Martin Scorsese adaptation of the critically acclaimed Infernal Affairs, Frank Costello (played by Jack Nicholson) quotes this line to a young Colin Sullivan (played by Conor Donovan). The Departed follows three men: a straight cop, a crooked cop, and an Irish mobster. Costello's character is based on Irish American mobster James "Whitey" Bulger.

“Do, or do not…”

In The Empire Strikes Back, Yoda (played by Frank Oz) can be seen quoting this line to Luke Skywalker in an attempt to provide wisdom to the aspiring Jedi. Luke tries his best to use the force, but Yoda doesn't seem to be quite impressed by his efforts.

“Good thoughts, good words…”

Bohemian Rhapsody captures the very essence of Freddie Mercury and his journey to becoming one of the world's best musicians, leading Queen to global recognition. Among the many quotes in the movie is these words spoken by Freddie's father Bomi Bulsara, who reminds his son to always say, think, and do good.

“Stupid is as…”

Multiple academy award nominee and winner Tom Hanks delivers a performance worthy of the highest accolade. "Stupid is as stupid does" is one of the most famous dialogues from the movie, and Forrest Gump (played by Hanks) can be seen quoting it time and again to people who think he's crazy or just plain stupid.

“I’m having an …”

In The Silence of the Lambs, Special Agent Clarice Starling (played by Jodie Foster) receives a call in the middle of a dinner party from Hannibal Lecter (played by Anthony Hopkins). Hannibal politely assures Clarice that he won't go after her before he cuts the call short after spotting the head of the psychiatric prison where he was held captive.

“I’ll have what…”

In the deli scene of When Harry Met Sally, the punchline "I'll have what she's having" was actually uttered by Estelle Reiner, mother of Rob Reiner, the director of the film. It went on to become one of the most popular movie quotes of all time and ranked 33rd on the American Film Institute list of 100 great movie quotes for quite some time.

“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re…”

The line from this memorable scene from The Wizard of Oz, in which Dorothy (played by Judy Garland) is more often misquoted people forget "Toto" from the quote. Dorothy quotes the line when she finds herself in a strange land but not before encountering the scarecrow on her way to the Emerald City.


This adaptation did total justice to Stephen King's gripping novel. And this is especially thanks to Jack Nicolson's psycho-killer scene, in which he hacks the bathroom door to make a gap that is just big enough for him to fit his head and scare everyone with the classic line that still creeps most people out.

“…but your enemies closer.”

The Godfather: Part II is an iconic classic with many memorable scenes and dialogues. Michael Corleone (played by Al Pacino) speaks about how his father taught him many things in the very room he and his associates were sitting. Michael explains how important it is to always keep tabs on your enemies.

“I don’t want to survive…”

This line from the movie was actually taken from Solomon Northup's book written in 1853. The director wanted to keep it as close to the original. In one of the scenes, Chiwetel Ejiofor who plays the character of Solomon Northup, a free black man kidnapped and forced into slavery can be seen saying the line to express his desire to be a free man once again and live.

“You’ve got to ask yourself one question…”

The fearless Harry Callahan (played by Clint Eastwood) in Dirty Harry delivers this memorable line right in the middle of his lunch, when he gets up to stop a bank robbery. The scene is quite unforgettable as Callahan crosses the street and points his gun at the already wounded man.
