1. Jaws

“I used to hate the water”

“I can’t imagine why….”

2. Shawshank Redemption

“I find I am so excited I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.”

3. Silence of the Lambs

“I do wish we could chat longer, but I’m having an old friend for dinner. Bye.”

4. Field of Dreams

“Hey, Dad! You wanna have a catch?”
“I’d like that.”

5. Good Morning, Vietnam!

“Oh, these are special. They’re ruby slippers, Adrian. Put these on and say there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, and you can be there. Ha, ha, ha, I hope, I hope we all could.”

6. Annie Hall

“…and I thought of that old joke, you know, the, this, this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, ‘Doc, uh, my brother’s crazy, he thinks he’s a chicken,’ and uh, the doctor says, ‘Well why don’t you turn him in?’ And the guy says, ‘I would, but I need the eggs.’ Well, I guess that’s pretty much now how I feel about relationships. You know, they’re totally irrational and crazy and absurd and – but uh, I guess we keep going through it…because…most of us need the eggs.”

7. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

“But Charlie, don’t forget what happened to the man that suddenly got everything he always wanted.”
“What happened?”
“He lived happily ever after.”

8. Charlotte’s Web

“Wilbur never forgot Charlotte. Although he loved her children and grandchildren dearly, none of the new spiders quite took her place in his heart. She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.”

9. Spiderman

“Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: ‘With great power comes great responsibility.’ This is my gift, my curse. Who am I? I’m Spider-man.”

10. Usual Suspects

“The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. And like that, he’s gone.”

11. Stand By Me

“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was 12. Jesus, does anyone?”

12. Back to the Future

“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”

13. Planet of the Apes

“You finally really did it. You maniacs! You blew it up! God damn you! God damn you all to hell!”


  1. Awesome! Where did you find these quotes!? So curious! Did you see Charlotte’s Web?

  7. WOW…you’re right. That was a GREAT list! You’ve got some good movies here. I completely forgot about Field of Dreams!!! And I always did like the last line in Spiderman.

  8. great list, 4 and 10 are on my favorite movies list


    Comment by Sparky on December 28, 2006
  9. I guess everybody did get scared of the water for a while after “Jaws”. The Spiderman line- makes me kind of sad especially on the first one because he couldn’t allow himself to be with the girl he loves.But that was resolved in #2 and by the looks of it #3 (saw the trailer in the moviehouse this week ). As for Charlotte’s Web- I got to see it!

  15. *shudder* Jaws still makes me a little nervous.


    Comment by Jenny on December 28, 2006
  16. great list! Love #8 – but what about “frankly my dear, I don’t give a damm?”


    Comment by guusje on December 28, 2006
  17. Yes, that quote from Charlotte’s Web is the last line of the book and is my favorite children’s book ever. Even more than Anne of Green Gables and that’s saying a lot.


    Comment by Michelle on December 29, 2006
  18. What about:
    “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” (Casablanca)
    As for Field of Dreams, it’s not the ending line, but I love the exchange:
    “Hey, is this heaven?”
    “No, it’s Iowa.”


    Comment by Di on December 29, 2006
  19. Field of Dreams? Back to the Future? Stand By Me?

    YES! YES! YES!


    Comment by mamatulip on December 29, 2006
  20. Great list! We love The Usual Suspects here.


    Comment by Jenny Ryan on December 29, 2006
  21. What about “I am going to give you the choice…I…never had” from Interview with a Vampire….
    and the best from Pulp Fiction The last chronological scene that has Butch and Fabienne riding away from the hotel on Butch’s newly acquired motorcycle (and the “last line” of the movie is therefore “Zed’s dead, baby; Zed’s dead.”
