A screenwriter doesn’t always need an entire script to forever make their mark on cinema; sometimes, a single word is enough.
Since the dawn of the talkie era when films first began to have sound nearly a century ago, movies have become famous not only for their fantastic plots, captivating cinematography, sweeping scores, and dramatic acting, but for their tear-jerking screenplays as well.
Typically, when you think of famous movie quotes, you might default to something like “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore” or “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” But sometimes, even short quotes of several words are more than we need.
These are some of the most famous single-word movie quotes of all time!
Can you name these famous films by their iconic one-word quotes?
