101 Movie One-Liners Everyone Should Know

Most one-liners nowadays are plays on classic ones that have been burned into our subconscious. We all know “I’ll be back”, or “Heeeeeeeeere’s Johnny!”, but AMOG‘s comprehensive list of one-liners throughout movie history is a great way to watch movies based on their trailer bait. “This is a real badge, I’m a real cop, and this is a real fucking gun.” I gotta watch Lethal Weapon again.

We all know some of the famous on-liners from the movies, but some of them are so commonplace that you may not even know that it’s a quote from a movie or from which movie it originated. But there are some quotes from movies that everyone should know. Some of them have really stood the test of time and are very old. Ironically, these are sometimes the ones that we know the best.

Here’s a list of one-liners that everyone should know and also which movie it came from and who in the movie said it. I’ve started with the earlier movies and have continued to go in chronological order.
