The First State Movies
The First State is the official nickname of Delaware. Before its coastline was explored by Europeans in the 16th century, Delaware was inhabited by several groups of Native Americans, including the Lenape in the north and Nanticoke in the south. It was initially colonized by Dutch traders at Zwaanendael, near the present town of Lewes, in 1631. Delaware was one of the 13 colonies participating in the American Revolution. On December 7, 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, and has since been known as "The First State" (source: wikipedia.org). These movies have a connection with Delaware. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Delaware?

Classic Movie "Arc" Quotes
What's an arc quote? Well, what an arc quote is NOT is a catchphrase or a signature quote. "What's the Matrix?" "Who's Keyser Soze?" These are arc quotes. Arc quotes are generally repeated lines that work as leitmotifs to the main theme of the film, the plot mystery or the lead character's Aesopian arc. They often have an enigmatic value whose resolution comes at the end, or they can define the whole narrative or the hero's journey by gaining either more or a whole new significance by the end (in most cases, they're not delivered by the main protagonists). On the basis of this lengthy but (I hope) insightful presentation, here comes the question: which of these arc quotes would you say is the most classic? After voting, you may discuss the list here

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"
