Countless characters, so many screenplays, and a litany of one-liners. We’ve pored through our collective memory of all the movies 2016 had to offer to single out the very best lines of dialogue. The ones that still make us chuckle, the ones that still make us swoon, the ones that hit us hard and have clattered around in our brains ever since.

“I’ll never stop chasing you - I’m relentless, I’m like the Terminator… You’re more like Sarah Connor, and in the first movie too, before she could do chin-ups.” - Paula (Rachel House), Hunt For the Wilderpeople

“I don’t know if you’ve been in a fight before, but there’s usually not this much talking.” Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Captain America: Civil War

“I’ll always worry about you, Alton. That’s the deal.” Roy (Michael Shannon), Midnight Special

“You’re the only man who ever touched me.” Black (Trevante Rhodes), Moonlight

“If you don’t know Jurassic Park, you don’t know shit.” Hank (Paul Dano), Swiss Army Man

“So you’re telling me you made a porno where the plot is the point?” Holland March (Ryan Gosling), The Nice Guys

“I feel like your 20s are all about hope, and then your 30s are all about realizing how dumb it was to hope.” Bill (Chris Gethard), Don’t Think Twice

“I was thinking about sharks.” Willoughby (Wyatt Russell), Everybody Wants Some

“People are strange creatures. You can’t always convince them that safety is in their best interest.” Howard (John Goodman) 10 Cloverfield Lane

“If I were a man, people would just listen and say, ‘Okay.’ Ohhhhhh, it would be so restful.” - Laura Dern, Certain Women

“Oh, I don’t have a cat. He’s a dog. His name’s Mike Hat.” Kevin (Chris Hemsworth), Ghostbusters

“Wouldst thou like to live deliciously?” Black Phillip (Wahab Chaudhry), The Witch

“You look like an avocado had sex with an older, more disgusting avocado. And not gently. Like it was hate-fucking. There was something wrong with the relationship and that was the only catharsis that they could find without violence.” Weasel (T.J. Miller), Deadpool

“Out of four possible stars, Rolling Stone has given it the shit emoji. So mixed, let’s call it mixed reviews.” Conner (Andy Samberg), Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

“I don’t… know. What… do… you… call… a… three-humped… camel?” Flash (Raymond S. Persi), Zootopia
