Sometimes all it takes for a movie to become timeless is a single line, perfectly written by a talented screenwriter and delivered by equally talented actors.

And that's exactly what happened to the following 10 movies, each of which became cult favorites thanks to a single memorable quote.

We bet everything we had that you already know all the above quotes by heart, because they have become much bigger than the movies they are a part of. These lines are printed on posters and t-shirts, they are quoted in other movies and books, they have become catchphrases in the purest sense of the word.

However, none of the above movies are considered great just because of them. The thing is, a memorable quote can be a curse and a blessing at the same time, because sometimes it becomes so big that the other qualities of the movie pale in comparison, which is not what the directors, actors, and screenwriters originally intended.

It can be really frustrating when the project you have been working on for years starts to be remembered for a single line of dialogue and the fans do not really care about anything else.

If you remember the quote but never saw the movie it came from, check it out!

Here are all the films mentioned: Soylent Green (1973), Sunset Boulevard, In The Heat Of The Night, On The Waterfront, Mommie Dearest, All About Eve, The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre, There Will Be Blood, A League Of Their Own, A Streetcar Named Desire.
