79.”Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” – The Princess Bride, 1983

78. “It’s just a flesh wound.” – Monty Python and the Holy Grail, 1975
“Just a Flesh Wound” and “‘Tis But a Scratch” are memorable lines stated by the Black Knight character in Monty Python and the Holy Grail after King Arthur refuses to give up their battle and chops off his arms.
The line has subsequently become a common catchphrase on the internet, frequently used jokingly to minimize a form of harm and deny someone or something’s advantage.
77. “Hell is a teenage girl” – Jennifer’s Body, 2009
Jennifer’s Body was screenwriter Diablo Cody’s follow-up to Juno, for which she earned many best original screenplay honors, including the Oscar.
It’s a vengeance horror comedy directed by Karyn Kusama that’s shamelessly produced for females, which confused most critics at the time.
Jennifer’s Body has been somewhat justified in recent years, with a new generation of bloggers and critics stating that the film was a feminist horror classic with sharp, biting comedy and a heartbreaking #MeToo plot long before the movement emerged.
Long before the righteous revisionism, the film’s opening sentence, Amanda Seyfried’s Needy, was a Tumblr ode to adolescence and the profundity of emotions young women experience.
76. “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.” – Cool Hand Luke, 1967
Captain states this remark in Cool Hand Luke, performed by Strother Martin. Luke Jackson, played by a pre-salad-dressing Paul Newman, maybe a member of a chain gang, but that doesn’t stop him from being sarcastic and defiant throughout.
Captain has to make Luke recognize his authority by yelling at him, punching him, and shoving him to the ground after he speaks back to the Captain, whom they name Captain.
“What we’ve got here…is failure to communicate,” Captain says as Luke falls in the dust.
75. “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.” – The Godfather, 1972
In all his legendary swagger, Marlon Brando delivers this line in the role of Don Vito Corleone- the Godfather of all godfathers, foretelling but underselling the horsehead that’s about to appear in our nightmares.
According to the American Film Institute, this is the second-most famous movie quotation of all time, so you’ve probably heard it somewhere.
However, if someone says it to you, flee. You’re in deep, deep trouble. Also, ensure you leave no trace they can use to track you down.
Dead people might start cropping up around you, so beware. Just giving our two cents, that’s all.
This line comes from the father of Michael Corleone, who asked us to keep our friends close and enemies closer- so really, you need to figure out how you get out of this pickle.
Better still, say it to someone annoying you with full gravitas. And watch them steer clear of you for eternity.
74. I am big! It’s the pictures that got small.” – Sunset Boulevard, 1950
This quote is as striking as wonderfully written, not to mention the icon status it has secured in pop culture! Joe Gillis encounters a woman he believes he’s seen before as he ventures into a supposedly vacant estate.
It turns out to be Norma Desmond, a long-forgotten silent cinema star.
Norma is dissatisfied with the current status of Hollywood. When Joe says he remembers her from when she was famous in Hollywood, she corrects him, saying she still is a big star. It’s just that modern cinema isn’t up to par with her glory.
Jow doesn’t know what he has gotten into, but with this dialogue, the film establishes who Norma is. Sunset Boulevard is a beautiful film; that is all we will say.
73. “I don’t want to survive. I want to live.” – 12 Years A Slave, 2013
The quote is from 1, an Academy Award-winning film. Solomon Northup, a carpenter, talented violinist, and a loving husband and father residing in New York, is abducted and forced into slavery, according to his published memoirs.
These lines are spoken by him quite early in the film, as a group of enslaved people is considering fighting their way to freedom, but others are hesitant because doing so would almost certainly result in their deaths. Solomon (Chiwetel Ejiofor) recalls his existence as a free man in despair just a few days ago.
He says these words, and we understand that he’d rather be a dead man than an enslaved person- it is striking as it is heart-wrenching. It makes us think of the years of abuse and inhuman treatment that the powerful have inflicted on the oppressed sections of society.
72. “My Mama always said, ‘Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’ll get. – Forrest Gump, 1994
Tom Hanks delivers this line with a strange innocence and sincerity, and somehow, within its very childlike dicta, we find a whole new perspective on our daily wins and woes.
This quote has been shared and reshared, quoted and requoted, yet it’s always fresh and lovely to the ear.
It reminds us of dear old Forrest, his undaunted love for Jenny, and the journey that led them to each other, apart, and then to each other again.
And when life gets hard, all we need to do is remind ourselves that life is unexpected, but It always ends up being worth the surprise.
71. “Marla’s Philosophy Of Life Is That She Might Die At Any Moment. The Tragedy, She Said, Was That She Didn’t.” – Fight Club, 1999
The first rule of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about it- so we’ll thrive in technicality and rave about Helena Bonham Carter’s beautiful portrayal of Marla instead.’
This quote perfectly captures the edge and despair that Marla personifies. It offers a deeper look at this woman who seems intimidating from afar but, in a close-up view, is only struggling to live, or maybe not to live.
The film also has Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, so we’re not complaining.
70. ‘You’ll have bad times, but it’ll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren’t paying attention to’ – Good Will Hunting, 1997
If this goes bad in your Life, there is a phase where you should consider the good things to make your Life beautiful.
This quote from the Good Will Hautning movie is quite suitable for those having tough times. The section from 1997 still helps a lot in the GenZ generation, too.

Talking about the next movie in the line, we have another iconic dialogue from Casablanca, one of the top-rated movies ever. The speaker of this line is Rick, the protagonist of the movie.

66. “All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.” – Sunset Boulevard, 1950
Coming onto the next excellent movie, we have this quote from Sunset Boulevard, released in 1950 and directed by Billy Wilder.
Norma Desmond, played by Gloria Swanson in the movie, gave Life to this iconic line.
In the movie, Norma says this line out of a misunderstanding. She has a camera in front of her and thinks that the camera is for taking her photograph. Therefore, she tells the cameraman that she is ready for her close-up shot.
But in reality, the camera was a news reporting camera that was there to capture and telecast the event of Norma getting arrested in a murder case.
65. “She doesn’t even go here!” – Mean Girls, 2004

If you have watched this movie and heard this super-emotional dialogue, you must have been compelled to grab your tissues and wipe away your tears. But for those who don’t know, this famous movie quote is from Casablanca.
The speaker is Rick Blaine, who Humphrey Bogart portrayed in the movie. Coming onto the context, Rick speaks this line when Ilsa is about to board her flight unwillingly. Ilsa does not want to board the plane as she wants to remain with Rick forever.

63. “I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.” – Who Framed Roger Rabbit, 1988
Another awesome line and one of the best-known movie quotes is this dialogue from Who Framed Roger Rabbit, directed by Robert Zemeckis and released in 1988. The speaker of this line is Jessica Rabbit, whose voiceover is done by Kathleen Turner.
The context in which the dialogue is spoken is that the character of Jessica is drawn sexually in the movie; therefore, everyone sees her as a sexual character only. But by saying this dialogue, she clarifies that she is not how she appears. She is a good human being with a heart who loves her husband and is loyal to him from head to toe.
62. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” – The Wizard of Oz, 1939
This quote is said by The Wizard of Oz, portrayed by Frank Morgan, in Victor Fleming’s movie.
The Wizard would seem amazing if you were in Dorothy’s shoes. Who is this great Oz Wizard? He has to be incredible.
The Wizard, it seems, isn’t all he’s built up to be. When Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the Scarecrow arrive at the Wizard’s castle, they hear a loud voice echoing everywhere, ordering them to return another day. It’s almost as if the Wizard of Oz is a deity, bringing his word down from the sky.
61. “Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed.” – Legally Blonde (2001)
Elle spoke of this quote in the movie Legally Blonde (2001), directed by Robert Luketic. In her intro to her eccentric classmates, Elle gives this fashion quote.
60. “My precious.” – The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, 2002
Gollum portrayed and narrated by Andy Serkis, hisses his famous phrase in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, directed by Peter Jackson, 2002. It’s also something Gollum says in J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel.
You’ve probably heard that every kiss starts with the letter K. Every self-centered, power-needy dictator starts with Gollum.
Those jewelry advertisement women have nothing on Gollum’s devotion to the One Ring. It’s his “treasure,” and if anyone attempts to take it away from him, he tells them how valuable it is.
59. “I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.” – The Devil Wears Prada, 2006

58. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” – Ferris Bueller’s Day, 1986
Ferris Bueller says this statement in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986). This quote has become something of an anthem for 1980s teen comedy. It may sound banal now, but back in 1986, it was revolutionary. Revolutionary.
Ferris Bueller is a lovely idler who puts everybody else’s Life into hell: principals, best buddies, and sisters. But while they’re all worrying their precious little brains off over it, Ferris plays the laid-back man and tells us to calm down.
It is one of the first things Ferris says to the public after breaching the fourth wall, and it’s essentially an adolescent boy advising us to take a breath and smell the flowers.
57. “There’s no crying in baseball!” – A League of Their Own, 1992
This quote is delivered by Tom Hanks’s character Jimmy Dugan in Penny Marshall’s movie A League of Their Own (1992). Tom Hanks is bold and loud and, therefore, can continuously urinate for approximately seven minutes in A League of Their Own, the finest baseball picture ever.
He may lead the Rockford Peaches, an all-female baseball team, but it doesn’t mean he’ll be easy on them. When he screams at Evelyn (Bitty Schram) for making a lousy throw, she sobs, prompting him to scream even harder, eventually exclaiming, “There’s no crying in baseball!”
56. “Why don’t you come up sometime and see me?” – She Done Him Wrong (1933)

54. “A martini. Shaken, not stirred.” – Goldfinger, 1964

53. “There’s no place like home.” – The Wizard of Oz, 1939

Dorothy speaks this line when he has defeated the Wicked of the West. After defeating the witch, when Dorothy wants to return home, the good witch instructs her the way, following which Dorothy says there is no place like him.
52. “You had me at ?hello.?” – Jerry Maguire, 1996

Rick Blaine, portrayed by Humphrey Bogart, says this memorable phrase in Michael Curtiz’s 1942 film Casablanca.
Rick Blaine had lost everything after Casablanca. Rick remains in Casablanca and lets Ilsa catch a plane to flee. Rick kills Nazi Major Strasser in front of Captain Louis Renault. When the cops come, Louis can hand Rick up but instead says, “Round up the usual suspects.”
“Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship,” Rick says as the two men move away. Louis isn’t Ilsa, but he’ll do it for now.
50. “Show me the money!” – Jerry Maguire, 1996
This line is from the movie Jerry Maguire, directed by Cameron Crowe (1996). Tom Cruise spoke about it. This exchange of exclamations between Cuba Gooding Jr. and Tom Cruise encapsulates their connection as athletes and agents. When it comes to corny rom-com lines, this one ranks at the top. The only surprise is that it wasn’t used in an 80s Molly Ringwald film years earlier.
A narcissistic sports agent, Jerry Maguire suddenly understands that the valid key to his joy has always been beneath his nose.
49. “When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – When Harry Met Sally, 1989
