12 Fan Recommended Best Lines From a Movie Ever

How many movies can you remember a line from verbatim? Like, an “I'll be back”-level line that will stick in your head forever? Not that many, I bet. 

When fans put forth the best lines they've ever heard from a movie, it's not all about how clever the line is. An elite turn of phrase or line of dialogue sticks in your craw—fans couldn't scrub these lines from their memory banks with a movie theater's worth of bleach. 

A Few Good Men

When Tom from accounting asks you whether you want to join his bowling league or your wife asks whether her new dress makes her look fat, this iconic line from A Few Good Men might go through your mind. Don't say it, don't say it… 

“You can't handle the truth!” 


No movie line is as readymade for use in everyday conversation as Leslie Nielsen's iconic retort in Airplane!  

“Surely you can't be serious!” 

“I am serious, and don't call me Shirley.” 

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Kingsman is a film built on snappy dialogue and countless one-liners. Colin Firth's Harry Hart counterbalances the biting British wit with memorable monologues packed with genuine wisdom, including this beauty: 

“Being a gentleman has nothing to do with one's accent. It's about being at ease in one's own skin. There's nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man. True nobility is being superior to your former self.”
