Folks really seemed to like one of my first weekly lists, the one dealing with memorable one-word lines of film dialogue — a single word so distinctive that you could actually identify the movie.
So, after months of mulling and pondering what creative thing I could do as a follow-up, I decided to break new ground and offer a list of similarly memorable two-word movie lines.
I’m sure there are other worthy two-word contenders, so feel free to contribute your nominees in the Comment section below.
On to the list:
One movie leads the way with three two-word lines:
Then come two films with two lines each:
• “The Wizard of Oz,” with “Toto, too?” and “I’m melting!”
And then here’s the rest of my nominees in alphabetical order:
• “Hey, Stella!” — “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Marlon Brando, that former Minnesota schoolboy who attended Shattuck Military Academy, delivers one of the most memorable scenes in film history as Stanley Kowalski.
• And a Minnesota favorite: “You betcha.” — “Fargo”
