1.The ‘Godfather’ trilogy is rife with memorable lines, but none have entered the public consciousness quite so much as “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.” Delivered with menace by Marlon Brando, it’s an unforgettable movie moment.
2.’Forrest Gump’ (1994)

3.’Back to the Future’ (1985)
This classic time travel caper is filled with smart one-liners that have more than stood the test of time. Of the many much-cited lines in the film, one of the best is Doc Brown’s line: “Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”

5.’Pulp Fiction’ (1994)
Director Quentin Tarantino is known for his snappy dialogue, and ‘Pulp Fiction’ is many a film buff’s most quoted movie. It’s also one of the most expletive-ridden movies out there, so maybe not one to quote during a visit to the in-laws. Of the clean quotes, “Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go home and have a heart attack” is up there with the best.
6.’Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery’ (1997)
“Yeah, baby!” Mike Myers’ Bond-spoofing spy comedy gave rise to some of the biggest catchphrases of the ’90s. Between shagadelic Powers and his arch nemesis Dr. Evil, many a memorable insult is delivered.

9.’The Princess Bride’ (1987)
Wittier than your average fairy-tale romance, ‘The Princess Bride’ is sharply rooted in satire. The line “You killed my father. Prepare to die,” has spawned so many memes that it’s easy to forget this is the movie that inspired them.
10.’The Wizard of Oz’ (1939)
“There’s no place like home” is just one of the many memorable lines from this much-loved classic. The Scarecrow’s line “Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t they?’ is one that has rung true for generations!
