Top 10 Best Movie Lines Ever

Sometimes when the words are just perfect, a single movie line is the most memorable part of the film. It lingers in your the mind. And then you use it in everyday conversation. And then...it becomes one of the best movie lines ever.

Odeon Cinemas conducted a survey of its nearly 100 complexes in the United Kingdom to rank these special lines from movies. You've probably heard every one of these--even if you didn't see the movie. These all happen to be parting shots. Maybe that's why they're so memorable and a part of everyday speech.

Top 10 best movie lines ever are...

1. "I'll be back."

The Terminator (1984)

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

Gone With the Wind (1939)

3. "Get busy living or get busy dying."

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

4. "Hasta la vista, baby."

Terminator II: Judgment Day (1991)

5. "Well, nobody's perfect!"

Some Like it Hot (1959)

6. "Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye."

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

7. "Goodbye, Mr. Bond."

Goldfinger (1964)

8. "I've seen things you wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in the rain...Time to die."

Bladerunner (1982)

9. "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!"

White Heat (1949)

10. "Forget about it!"

Donnie Brasco (1997)

I realize that this wasn't a request for more, but I have to throw in my two cents anyway.

"As you can see, we've got quite a file on you, Mr. Rick, and-"

"Are my eyes really brown?"

-Casablanca (1942)

I'd also be tempted to include some choice ones from Charade and To Catch A Thief, but I'd just end up writing transcripts of the entire movies. The only reason I can quote Casablanca is that I feel words can't do justice to most of it, particularly the Marseillaise scene.

I'm really surprised at some of these...Shawshank Redemption made 3rd on that quote?! (Don't get me wrong, its an excellent movie...its just that this particular quote, while I noticed it, didn't really seem to me that memorable.)

I'm also surprised the 2001 quote isn't "I'm sorry Dave but I'm afraid I can't do that." I wouldn't have remembered the ranked one if I hadn't seen it today...

Bladerunner's one of my favorite movies...Didn't think it'd ever make top ten in a non purely sci-fi list though...Maybe it fared better in the UK than in North-America? I agree with Phoenix, Casablanca had an awesome, memorable, perfect script.

Speaking of which, its the end of the world. They're remaking Casablanca and its starring *gasp* Ben Affleck and *groan* Jennifer Lopez. To those of you who didn't know, I was shocked too...A remake is bad enough, starring them is just plain wrong.

Sorry but I really liked the 'Planet of the Apes'. It didn't have the charm of the original (at all!) but it was fun in it's own way. Plus how scary was that lead monkey dude!?! Was it Tim Roth? ::dozingoff Plus the end was good, it'll never top the statue of liberty bit but it was as close as Hollywood could ever come.

One of my all time favourite lines is

"You rebel scum!"

from Return of the Jedi. Brilliant! I even have it highlighted in my copy of the script book... ::blush It's the way the guy delivers it. It's all in the delivery!

...and finally...

I liked the Mario Bros film too! I don't like the games (boring!) but the film was funny! I want a 'devo-ray'! The highlight had to be the bit in the lift, when Mario (it's good to talk!) and Luigi get the Goombas (?) dancing! I could've died laughing!

Anyways...sorry about that, I refer you to my signature!

If you're going to start quoting Hudson from aliens then you have to add this little bit...

badass art. You do not want to

**** with me. Hey, Ripley, don't

worry. Me and my squad of

Holy hell! I didn't know that. That's sacrilege!

I'm afraid to ask, but does Affleck play Rick or Laslo?

Personally I think "The Princess Bride" is a good source for quotes, like my signature....

"You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means"

"Death cannot stop true love. It can only delay it awhile."

Army of Darkness has good ones.

"Listen up you primitive screwheads....."

Return of the Jedi

Han: "How we doin?"

Luke: "Same as always."

Han: "That bad, huh?"

Old Dune

Paul: "He who can destroy a thing, controls a thing"

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death......."


The God complex monlogue summed up in, "I am God"

The Shadow

"Did you think you'd get away with it? Did you think I wouldn't know?"


When Wyatt is facing down the badguys, "You die first. Your friends might rush me & get me, but you die first."

The Fifth Element

"Lady I only speak 2 languages english & bad english", & " I'm all for conversation,but could you shut right now"

The Crow

"I guess it's not a good day to be a bad guy"

Meet Joe Black (I know many hate the flick)

"That is life, what can I tell you?"

"Take it wrap it in infinity & plumbs the depths of forever & you still won't have an inkling of what I am talking about"

I could go on lol.

These are a few of my favorites.

An another couple of ones from Babylon 5...

(Had too)

"We were talking the other day about how nobody has seen a Vorlon before.

And he said that according to legend, one human *did* see a Vorlon,

and turned to stone."

"Well, that's just a legend."



-- Takashima and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"

"Even for an alien, this one is pretty alien."

-- Dr. Kyle to Sinclair about Kosh in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"

"Commander, this little breach of security isn't going

to affect my Christmas bonus, is it?"

-- Garibaldi to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"The Gathering"

"That's quite a viewer. I've never seen anything quite like it before.

What is it?"


-- Sinclair and Kosh in Babylon 5:"The War Prayer"

"Understanding is a three-edged sword."

-- Kosh to Talia Winters in Babylon 5:"Deathwalker"

"Ambassador Kosh has been a busy boy today."

"They say God works in mysterious ways."

"Maybe so, but He's a con-man compared to the Vorlon."

-- Garibaldi and Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Deathwalker"

"Well, as answers go, short to the point, utterly useless and totally

consistent, what I've come to expect from a Vorlon."


-- Sheridan and Kosh in Babylon 5:"Matters of Honor"

"I find your lack of faith.... disturbing."

Darth Vader does the remote strangle jedi trick on a subaltern.

You want a real hoot, check out the "Lux Radio Theatre" take on SW-- "The Adventures of Luke Skywalker". ::ninja

Bela Lugosi plays Vader, and his lines are all simply memorable.

Also worth remembering...

"I have a bad feeling about this"

(a number of SW movies and Tie-ins)

"It's a trick. Get an axe."

Army of Darkness, a mine of good oneliners, including the essential exchange:

"I'll swallow your soul!"

"Come get some."

And of course, the Rocky Horror Picture Show...

"And crawling on the planet's face, some insects, called the human race, lost into time, and lost into space. And meaning."

Hm. . .start of simple, some Army of Darkness:

Who the hell are you?!

" Things were fine until our containment grid was shut down by dickless here.

Is this true?

Yes, it's true. . .this man has no dick. "

Iceman's mother: I just can't believe this is happening.. It's all my fault!

Pyro: Actually.. they discovered the gene causing mutation is carried and passed on by men, so.. *gestures at I.'s father* it's his fault.


I'm the kind of uncle who wants you to sit on his lap.


Am I the only one here who's actually read the Null Manifesto?


The Teragen sourcebook, which I just got, has a very familiar atmosphere, and has quite a few funny lines in it.
