ANSWER: Gone With the Wind
Casablanca might have some pretty famous quotes on their list, but this one's from Gone With the Wind — and it was voted the #1 movie line of all time by the AFI. In the film, Rhett Butler ends his romance with Scarlett O'Hara using this classic line.
ANSWER: When Harry Met Sally
Can men and women really be just friends? That's the basis of the movie this quote came from. In this particular scene, Sally tries to convince Harry that women fake orgasms all the time by faking one right in the middle of a deli. Another customer sees her, and says to the waitress, "I'll have what she's having."
ANSWER: Forrest Gump
Though this line was spoken by Forrest Gump himself, he's actually recalling a quote that his mom used to tell him as a child.
ANSWER: Dirty Dancing
This quote comes from none other than Dirty Dancing — you know, the one with that iconic dance scene. If you haven't had the time of your life yet, just throw on some tunes and find a partner to do the famous Dirty Dancing lift with.
ANSWER: A Few Good Men
This is one of the most memorable lines from A Few Good Men, if you ask us.
ANSWER: Sunset Boulevard
How many times have you said this while getting your picture taken?! It's a phrase people are basically born knowing, and it comes from the 1950s film Sunset Boulevard, a drama about a silent-film star who hires a screenwriter to help her break back into the business. *cue violence and danger*
ANSWER: Taxi Driver
Yep, that's Travis Bickle's (played by Robert De Niro) infamous tough-guy line from the movie Taxi Driver. You've definitely heard it before, whether you knew what it was from or not. The movie is about a war veteran with insomnia who starts driving cabs — then decides he wants to save the world.
ANSWER: Cool Hand Luke
If you like prison dramas, then you definitely know this line from Cool Hand Luke — a film about a prisoner who won't abide by the rules and keeps trying to escape.
ANSWER: The Terminator
It just three small words, but certainly the most iconic line of the entire film about a cyborg (a.k.a. Arnold Schwarzenegger) who travels back in time to kill someone.
ANSWER: Jerry Maguire
A football player isn't pleased with his agent, so he dances and repeats, "Show me the money!" over and over again on the phone to get the agent to make it work. It's arguably the best scene of the entire movie, and it even helped the Cuba Gooding Jr. win an Oscar.
Okay, Liam Neeson's character in Taken is clearly intimidating, but how else should someone act when their daughter is kidnapped? His enemy responds: "Good luck."
