Iconic Movie Quotations
Many movie quotes became iconic because they could adapt to everyday situations that justified quoting the film... starting with the film itself Indeed, some quotes were even more legendary because they seemed to have an existence of their own "before" the film and entered pop culture as "quotes within quotes", or simply put "quotations". Whether quotes whose core-statement was taken from an original speaker or featuring a quotation from the actual speaker referring to himself or someone else, the quotation to vote for is in bold letters. Some classic lines were used in an initial context then reprised for a more impactful effect, they can be considered as quotations but they don't exactly fit the criteria of the poll, so no "there's no place like home" or "Hasta la vista baby". Which of these cinematic quotations is the most iconic? After voting, I say "discuss the list here"
