Famous lines and movie quotes play an important part in modern day pop culture. A quote is something interesting or important that a famous person or character says that gets repeated by others. We all remember famous movie lines and use them in our own lives. It is an excellent way to practice English. Use body language, facial expression and try to get the accent right and repeat after me:
