Movie Quotes of All-Time

Screenwriters have provided generations of movie-goers with memorable movie quotes and lines of dialogue, from film speeches, one-liners, quips, punchlines, statements, insults, and even mis-quotes. Their words are remembered through popular use, critical acclaim, shock value and quotability, and for many other reasons.

Some lines become more visible or recognizable than was the original intention. Scores of memorable lines have captured our attention by the way the line was delivered, by the tone in the actor's voice, the electricity on the screen, or many have become catch phrases. Many memorable movie lines are not from the greatest films, but they have remained as part of the film's legacy (and etched a place in movie history) anyway!

"My Mama always said, 'Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get.'"
