Gone with the Wind, 1939

Quote: “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

There was huge controversy over using the word “damn” in the now infamous line from Gone with the Wind. Two months before the film was set to premiere, censors requested the word to be cut due to a code that “forbade profanity,” among other things. Luckily, the now-iconic curse word stayed.Getty Images

Casablanca, 1942

Quote: “Here’s looking at you, kid.”

Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) says his goodbyes to Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) with a line that people loved, but never really understood. In Japanese, the line translates to “Cheers to your eyes,” which makes a little more sense (maybe?). Anyway, apparently it was easy for Bogart to say goodbye - he hated working with Bergman on the film.Everett

All About Eve, 1950

Quote: “Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.”

With 14 Oscar nominations, the film is tied with Titanic for most Academy Award nominations for a single film - yet, it’s famous line, said by Margo Channing, is often misquoted. Many people have replaced the word “night” with “ride.” While this makes more sense, it’s not what was actually said.Everett

Dr. No, 1962

Quote: “Bond. James Bond.”

The iconic line - spoofed literally thousands of times (ok, we didn't count but we're pretty sure that's accurate) - was originally said by Sean Connery in Dr. No, the first of many James Bond movies. Author of the popular series, Ian Fleming, reportedly named his spy character after an American ornithologist. Getty Images

It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, 1966

Quote: “Don’t you know a sarcasm when you hear it?”

A lot of popular quotes came out of the 1960s Peanuts cartoon series, including "I got a rock." This line particularly relatable - who among us doesn't have that one friend who never picks up on your hilarious sarcasm?Everett

Planet of the Apes, 1968

Quote: “Take your stinkin' paws off me you damn dirty ape.”

This was a major scene in the original Planet of the Apes movie - it's the first time the apes have heard a human speak. Astronaut George Taylor landed on a planet where animals communicate with words and humans behave like wild creatures. This rather vulgar line has made it's way into popular culture, re-enacted in shows like Family Guy. Everett

Love Story, 1970

Quote: “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”

The most memorable line from the movie is first said by Jennifer to Oliver. But it became the tear-jerker quote we know today when Oliver says it to his father, who attempts to comfort Oliver after (spoiler) Jennifer dies. Some critics have gone so far as to analyze why you should tell the ones you love that you’re sorry.Everett

The Godfather II, 1974

Quote: “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.”

When a famous quote becomes a life philosophy, it’s definitely iconic. Since the release of the second Godfather film, people have overanalyzed the meaning of the quote and all the ways in which a person could apply it in real life.Getty Images

Jaws, 1975

Quote: “We're gonna need a bigger boat.”

The catchphrase from the classic thriller actually started as a behind-the-scenes inside joke. While filming scenes at-sea, the crew experienced logistical difficulties - like not enough room on the boat for essential equipment or craft services.

The films’ screenwriter Carl Gottlieb said in an interview, "[David] Zanik [sic] and [Richard] Brown were very stingy producers so everyone kept telling them 'You're gonna need a bigger boat.' It became a catchphrase for any time anything went wrong - if lunch was late or the swells were rocking the camera, someone would say, 'You're gonna need a bigger boat.'"Everett

Taxi Driver, 1976

Quote: “Are you talking to me?”

Robert De Niro created and delivered the infamous line in Taxi Driver in 1976. Director Martin Scorsese recently revealed that De Niro completely made it up on the spot. "A key improvisation in the movie was Bob in the mirror," Scorsese told the crowd at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.Getty Images

Star Wars, 1977

Quote: “May the force be with you.”

George Lucas’ beloved intergalactic series has spawned not just an iconic line, but an iconic punch line. Star Wars fans noticed the phrase sounded very similar to the date May 4, which is now known as "Star Wars Day."

The Shining, 1980

Quote: “Here’s Johnny.”

Sometimes the scary lines are the most memorable - as was the case when Jack Nicholson stuck his head through the door and creepily said "Here's Johnny," a terrifying riff on the way Johnny Carson was introduced at the start of The Tonight Show. In 2013, a study revealed that this scene from The Shining was the scariest in movie history. Getty Images

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, 1982

Quote: “E.T. phone home.”

The voice of E.T. was provided by an elderly woman named Pat Welsh who smoked two packs of cigarettes a day. But to really give E.T. the alien-like persona, they combined Welsh's voice with recorded animal noises and 16 other voices, including director Stephen Spielberg's. Getty Images

Scarface, 1983

Quote: “Say hello to my little friend.”

Al Pacino "literally blew the doors off the place" with this memorable line in the gangster classic, Scarface. His character Tony Montoya guns down the door with his machine gun (a.k.a the not-so-little friend). Everett

Ghostbusters, 1984

Quote: "Who ya gonna call?"

Ghostbusters! Ten bucks says you sang the phrase just now in your head. And now it's stuck there. Getty Images

The Terminator, 1984

Quote: “I’ll be back.”

And we bet you read this catchphrase from The Terminator in Arnold Schwarzenegger's Austrian accent because the way he said it was that iconic. Reportedly the eventual California governor had trouble pronouncing the word "I'll" and asked director James Cameron if he could change the line to "I will be back." But that doesn't have quite the same ring. Everett

The Breakfast Club, 1985

Quote: "Eat my shorts."

The infamous line from The Breakfast Club is actually just a nicer way to say, "Eat my shit!" It has since become Bart Simpson's trademark catchphrase in The Simpsons, which began airing four years after this film came out. Shutterstock

Top Gun, 1986

Quote: “I feel the need, the need for speed.”

A lot of really great quotes came out of the movie Top Gun when it was released in 1986 - but the one this was the one that stuck out most. Don't lie, you probably say it every time you pull onto an empty stretch of highway. Everett

Ferris Bueller's Day Off, 1986

Quote: "Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?"

Ben Stein, famous for delivering the monotone, droning line, wasn't even an actor - he was a lawyer who was in the right place at the right time. “One of the people I met when I was first out here, they said ‘We’re making a movie called “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and we’d like you to read the roll off-camera,'" Stein told Oprah Winfrey. Shutterstock

Dirty Dancing, 1987

Quote: “Nobody puts baby in the corner.”

Patrick Swayze reportedly hated this classic line from Dirty Dancing - and so did the film's writer Eleanor Bergstein. ”I don’t think anybody thought it was too great a line,” Bergstein said in an interview with Huffington Post. “Patrick didn’t want to say it, but I just said, ‘Well, just say it once and then the next time, just go up and do the speech and maybe we won’t use it.’ But we decided to use it.”Everett

Who Framed Roger Rabbit, 1988

Quote: “Is that a rabbit in your pocket or are you just happy to see me.”

Roger Rabbit is on the lamb, so he hides in the most obvious way in Eddie's jacket. The writers wanted to throw in a little adult humor, hence Delores's inappropriate joke that turned iconic.Everett

When Harry Met Sally, 1989

Quote: “I’ll have what she’s having.”

In an attempt to prove that women can - and sometimes do - fake orgasms, Sally (Meg Ryan) fakes one right in front of Harry (Billy Crystal). The genesis of this memorable scene was during rehearsals, when two of the writers were debating the matter. Ryan had the brilliant idea of performing a fake orgasm in a public place, and even thought to have an older woman say the now famous "I'll have" line.Everett

Home Alone, 1990

Quote: "Keep the change ya filthy animal."

While he's home alone, Kevin plays an old gangster movie to make it seem like there is an adult with him - but, there's no classic film with that famous line. It was made up specifically for this movie. Shutterstock

A League of Their Own, 1992

Quote: “There’s no crying in baseball.”

When Evelyn comes off the diamond crying, coach Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) yells the line - which you now say whenever someone gets teary eyed. Hanks' unique voice made it easy for a lot of his lines from this movie and many others to become iconic.Everett

Dazed and Confused, 1993

Quote: "Alright alright alright."

Matthew McConaughey's delivery of this line is so iconic it's almost as though it's become a part of the actor himself. In an interview, McConaughey said his character was about three things - his car, getting high, and rock n'roll, which prompted him to say only three of the four original "alrights" while filming. Shutterstock

Sandlot, 1993

Quote: “You’re killin’ me smalls.”

The 90s classic introduced the world to the famous line, and it's one that actor Tom Guiry, who played Scotty Smalls, never gets tired of hearing. “I hear that about three or four times a day,” Guiry said in an interview. “I used to haaaaate it, man. But I like it now. You hit 30 and you’re, like, ‘It’s cool, it’s cool.’ It’s sort of nice that people still appreciate it.”Everett

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, 1994

Quote: "Alrighty then."

The hilarious pet detective is reportedly getting a reboot, and it's a likely we'll be hearing much more of the famous line in the remake. Shutterstock

Forrest Gump, 1994

Quote: “My mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

It was the way Forrest Gump's mother described life's surprises to him, and it was just one of the many memorable quotes to come from the movie. (Again, thanks to Hanks' distinct voice and the accent he put on to play Forrest.) "My mama says that stupid is as stupid does" and "Run, Forrest! Run!" are close second- and third-place contenders. Everett

Dumb and Dumber, 1994

Quote: "So you're telling me there's a chance."

When Jim Carrey's hopelessly optimistic character confesses his love for Mary, she tells him he's got a one-in-a-million chance with her - which prompted the oft-repeated phrase. Though, like many famous lines, it's not always said correctly. There's a chance you've said, "So you're saying there's a chance."Getty Images

Toy Story, 1995

Quote: “To infinity and beyond.”

Buzz Lightyear's trademark catchphrase became one of Disney and Pixar's most beloved lines. The character himself has become an icon for space travel, and a toy figurine has even been to outer space on the Discovery shuttle. Everett

Clueless, 1995

Quote: "As if."

Film director Amy Heckerling recently opened up about borrowing the popular 90's catchphrase from the gay community - which can be problematic, though she said she meant no harm by it.

“At that time, 'As if!' was floating around in the gay community and I thought it was really a multi-useful, multipurpose word," Heckerling told The Hollywood Reporter. "I thought it would be a good thing for teenagers to be saying.”Shutterstock

Billy Madison, 1995

Quote: "Stop looking at me, swan."

Adam Sandler's man-child character is taking a bath when he yells the famous line at the waterfoul-shaped faucet in his childish voice - and now every time you see anything swan-like, you do too. Getty Images

Swingers, 1996

Quote: "Vegas baby!"

In the opening scene, Trent (Vince Vaughn) calls Mike (Jon Favreau) to convince him they need to go on an impromptu trip to Vegas that night. Over the phone he Vaughn shouts the iconic line that you can't go to Vegas without saying at least once seven times. Shutterstock

Jerry Maguire,1996

Quote: “You had me at ‘hello.’”

These five words became fodder for Hallmark Cards, marriage proposals, and scientific studies on first impressions. UCLA researcher Jody Kreiman said in an interview with NPR that people make snap judgements within seconds of meeting someone (a.k.a the time it takes a person to say "hello").Everett

Titanic, 1997

Quote: “I’m the king of the world.”

It was swoony when Leo said it, but when the film's director, James Cameron, accepted his Academy Award for "Best Director," he shouted the famed line, too. People thought it was a little cocky of him, and that the line should have been reserved for the movie.Everett

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, 1997

Quote: "Oh behave."

If you saw this movie as a kid, you probably didn't think twice about the implication of the iconic line delivered by Mike Meyers' shagging-obsessed spy. Shutterstock

Rush Hour, 1998

Quote: "Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?"

When Los Angeles police detective Carter (Christ Tucker) meets Hong Kong diplomat (Jackie Chan), he speaks to him in what he thinks is a Chinese accent. Even though it's racially insensitive, the line is one that people will never forget. Shutterstock

The Sixth Sense, 1999

Quote: “I see dead people.”

The four-word phrase was originally said by Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense, but it's made its way into other movies, TV shows, and memes. There are much scarier moments in this film, but Osment's short sentence seems to be the creepiest one, and the one that stuck with viewers the most.Getty Images

Zoolander, 2001

Quote: "Did you ever think there's more to life than being really really really ridiculously good looking?"

This is only one of the few really really really ridiculously great quotes to come from the movie Zoolander. Others include, "So hot right now," and "I'm sorry that good looking people like us made you throw up and feel bad about yourself."Getty Images

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, 2001

Quote: “You’re a wizard, Harry.”

Some might argue this is the most memorable of all the lines in all eight books and movies because of it's significance - without wizardry there is no Harry Potter - but we'd argue it's because of the line's meme-ability.Everett

The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers, 2002

Quote: “My precious.”

Don't lie, you've held up a piece of jewelry and said this Lord of the Rings quote in an evil voice like Gollum. Actor Andy Serkis who voiced Gollum said he never gets tired of repeating the line to people.

"No, no. People are very kind and appreciative. My kids [ages 14, 12, and 8] might be over it" Serkis said in an interview. "The young one, Louis, still thinks it's cool that I do Gollum. But the older ones, Ruby and Sunny, are a little more past it."

Elf, 2003

Quote: "Smiling's my favorite."

Who could forget the famous line from our 6-foot tall friend, Buddy the Elf, who spreads Christmas joy to all? Shutterstock

Old School, 2003

Quote: "You're my boy blue."

Will Ferrell has voiced quite a few of the best quotes in movie history, including in his one from Elf (in the previous slide), this one from Old School, and several from Anchorman (in the next slide). Shutterstock

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, 2004

Quote: "I'm kind of a big deal."

Ron Burgundy is prompted to say the iconic line when he meets Veronica Corningstone and she doesn't know who he is. Just another of Will Ferrell's famous lines from the early aughts. Shutterstock

Mean Girls, 2004

Quote: "Stop trying to make fetch happen."

Regina George (Rachel McAdams) is an iconic 2000s character herself, and she delivers this line famously. Several other fan-favorites from the movie include, "You can't sit with us," and "On Wednesdays we wear pink." Everett

Bridesmaids, 2011

Quote: "Help me, I'm poor."

If you've graduated college with a giant student loan debt, you've likely used this Bridesmaids line, now also a meme. Shutterstock

Frozen, 2013

Quote: “Some people are worth melting for.”

Though it may be too soon to call this an iconic quote, this widely popular Disney Pixar movie made its way into people's hearts with it's lively music and girl power-inspired storyline. The character Olaf (Josh Gad), has a few memorable lines, but we're predicting this will be one remembered years later. After all, the phrase has been put on everything from a shirt to a coffee mug.Everett

Guardians of the Galaxy, 2014

Quote: “I am Groot.”

This is another quote for which it's too soon to tell, but we think it could become iconic. Guardians of the Galaxy won people over with it's eclectic mix of 70s hits, and hilarious, sarcastic main character named Peter Quill (a.k.a Star Lord), played by Chris Pratt. But one of the crowd favorites - who only said one line throughout the entire movie - was Groot, played by Vin Diesel. Everett
