10 Underappreciated Movie Quotes From Your Childhood Favorites That Deserve Better

Paramount Pictures / Warner Bros.

Some of the movies we watched as kids managed to become so quotable that we almost wore them out even when weren't watching them.

You would hear people yelling out "You're killing me, smalls!" or "one million dollars!" (complete with the hand motion) and then after a while you no longer felt like you needed to watch those movies anymore.

Well, you still would, but by your hundredth rewatch of The Sandlot or Austin Powers, you knew all the words to the entire movie.

There are however, a few quotes that stuck with us forever. Sometimes it's just the throwaway lines that make you laugh the most, others it's one that seems like no one else finds it funny.

People have shared which lines have stood out to them, and they will immediately remind you of all your childhood favorites.

"Get back, witch"

The Princess Bride
20th Century Fox

The iconic line from The Princess Bride may not be the go-to line of the movie because fans are too busy reciting Inigo Montoya's monologue, or "as you wish," but the part with Billy Crystal is definitely the best part of the movie.

The exchange is between Miracle Max and his wife Valerie, and it's the very best moment.  

Miracle Max: "Get back, witch!"

Valerie: "I'm not a witch, I'm your wife!"

The quick scene with these two characters manages to remain funny even after seeing the classic movie dozens of times.

"We mustn't dwell. No, not today."

Empire Records
Warner Bros.

The movie is one of those iconic 90s teen movies that our childhoods wouldn't be the same without, and this quote, while not always remembered, is still a classic.

Because the movie isn't as popular as it should be, saying the following quote out loud will often result in a lot of strange looks.

"We mustn't dwell. No, not today. We can't! Not on Rex Manning Day!"

"I'm right on top of that, Rose!"

Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead
Warner Bros.

The concept of this movie is absolutely insane, but honestly, we all loved it.

It's a zany and quirky movie about a babysitter dying on the job, leaving the 17-year-old Sue Ellen to take care of her siblings. She gets a job to help pay for everything, but the iconic line that we all can't help but quote is probably how we all learned about sarcasm.

"I'm right on top of that, Rose!"

"I hope not sporadically"

Poor little Tai. She was lucky to have made friends quickly, but it does kind of suck that her friends immediately vowed to change her.

But they do teach her some things, including vocabulary, which is where this iconic line comes from.

Britney Murphy had a lot of amazing moments in the movie, but this one doesn't get enough love.

Josh: "Be seeing you."

Tai: "Yeah, I hope not sporadically."

"Drink your juice, Shelby"

Steel Magnolias
TriStar Pictures

Steel Magnolias is a really dramatic movie, but the women are tough as steel.

Shelby has the most upsetting story in the movie, but the moment we all remember will always be what her mother says to her.

"Drink your juice, Shelby"

"Make like a tree"

Back to the Future
Universal Pictures

Back to the Future is one of the most iconic movies of the 80s, but most people remember more of Michael J. Fox's lines, or Christopher Lloyd's lines, but it's the one yelled by Biff Tannen that really stuck with a lot of people.

He's a bully, sure, but he could have tried harder to finish the pun properly...

"Make like a tree, and get out of here."

"You're over-correcting, Marge"

Dirty Dancing
Vestron Pictures

Dirty Dancing most famous quote is of course "Nobody puts baby in the corner" but there are a lot of classics.

The one that stood out to one user, was said by Baby's dad. He's a really interesting character, so it's nice that one of his lines is someone's favorites.

"You're over-correcting, Marge"

It's a quick little comeback that you can use in your regular daily life, but I guarantee that people will look at you a little strange when you start calling everyone Marge.

"Run away!"

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
EMI Films

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is one of those movies that we all had memorized at a very young age.

Admit it, you've been telling people that you "would fart in their general direction" for as long as you can remember, haven't you?

But one line that is probably one of the funniest moments is the scene with the deadly rabbit of Caerbannog. They try to defeat him, but instead it doesn't go as planned.

"RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!"

Anytime I am faced with a situation I want to leave, this is what runs through my head, and I know I can't be the only one.

"I picked the wrong week..."

Airplane!
Paramount Pictures

Watching Airplane! when you were young was a little bit interesting because chances are you didn't actually understand 75% of the jokes.

You just saw people making funny faces and felt like you were supposed to laugh.

Rewatching it as an adult makes you second guess about a lot of the jokes you used to repeat all the time, but it was all in good fun so try not be too embarrassed.

One of the bests was a quick little joke that honestly still makes me laugh a bit.

"I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue!"

"Come back"

Titanic
Paramount Pictures

There are very few movies as epic as Titanic. Literally every moment of this movie has become iconic.

But personally for me, this one line is what I quote the most. You have to make sure you get Rose's frozen and scratchy voice perfectly, but when you do, it's absolutely great.

Although fair warning, no one knows why you sound like you're dying, so brace yourself for some confused looks.

Although it's a heartbreaking moment when Rose has to let go of her love, she decides that she needs to keep fighting to survive.

Everyone remembers "I'll never let you go, Jack" but this one is way more fun to say.

"Come back! Come back! Come back."
