Everybody has a favorite line from their favorite movie, and while some will get you some blank stares, others are so iconic that they’ve become part of our every day language. In the case of these 10 quotes, people quote them even if they’ve never even seen what they come from.
“I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.”
No line in a film has even been so cryptic and intimidating, and we all wish we were as badass as Vito Corleone.
“Missed it by THAT much.”
Plenty of people nowadays don’t seem to know this is a quote, and they really need to Get Smart.
“No. I am your father.”
No, the line is not “Luke, I am your father.” Everyone tends to get the most famous one-line plot twist in history wrong, but that doesn’t make it any less iconic.
“How YOU doin’?”
Joey Tribbiani is everybody’s favorite lovable doofus, and this line was always a highlight of the show.
You’re definitely going to recognize some of these next lines…
“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
Revenge may be a dish best served cold (which is another quote entirely), but it never sounded as fiery and intense as when delivered by Mandy Patinkin.
“Did I do that?”
Steve Urkel could basically get away with anything, largely thanks to this quote.
“I’ll be back.”
If you’ve never said this line with an exaggerated Austrian accent, check your pulse, because you’re dead inside.
Did you know this line started with That’s So Raven? I sure didn’t!
“Say hello to my little friend!”
As Robin Williams once said, “A line unfortunately said in bedrooms across America.”
“I’m Rick James, b****!”
The line that defined Dave Chappelle’s career (for better or for worse), it’s the cornerstone of his amazing portrayal of the famous singer.
