What makes a great line from a film, great? Is it the cadence in which the actor says it? The reaction of those around them? The sheer quotability of it?
Honestly, I don’t have an answer for ya, but what I do know, is that there are so many fantastic lines that we could do 80 gajillion videos about all of the different quotes and such. So instead, in this video, I’m gonna target a very specific type of line. Writers spend hours upon hours upon hours working to write and refine their scripts, perfecting the dialog.

Ain’t that a kick in the pants.
