Mandatory Movies: The 24 Most Quoted Lines of All Drama Movies
When you see the above picture, you can almost hear a coked-up Tony Montana scream, “Say hello to my little friend!” before single-handedly taking on the team of assassins infiltrating his estate. There are plenty of lines that when you hear them, you know exactly what movie they are from. They’re never the most elaborate; quick, quotable, and woven into some of cinema’s most memorable characters, moments, and films. That said, everybody has a favorite line.

With that in mind, here are the most quoted lines of all drama movies.
