"Say 'What' Again!" And 15 Other Iconic Lines From Tarantino's Films

"I double dare you" to read these quotes without picturing the exact scene from each Tarantino movie.

There’s no one better than Tarantino to create iconic movie lines. Leaving aside the use of violence, the use of pop culture references, and great soundtracks, his dialogues are definitely his signature trait as a filmmaker. It is through often sassy, witty, and sometimes hilarious dialogues where his badass characters thrive in their revenge stories and heroic quests (if there’s such thing in his movies).

From the classic, “Royale with cheese,” to the “that’s a bingo,” or the “silly Caucasian girl likes playing with samurai swords,” Tarantino films are filled with amazing one-liners and great quotes that are as great as his cinematography and narratives. And his upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, promises to give us some instant classics. 


In the meantime, here are some of the best lines we’ve loved in his films. So, grab a tasty burger and a tasty refreshment and relive his great writing.

You don't want to be in Mr. Pink’s way.

"I don't wanna kill anybody. But if I gotta get out that door, and you're standing in my way, one way or the other, you're gettin' outta my way." - Mr. Pink (Reservoir Dogs)


If you’re having dinner with Mr. White, you better pay attention to him, even if you’re the boss.

“You shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize.” - Mr. White (Reservoir Dogs)


Mia is a mess, but when she’s right, she’s right.

"Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?" - Mia Wallace (Pulp Fiction)

I don’t think there’s a day in Sam Jackson’s life he isn’t asked to say this iconic line.

“Say ‘what’ again, I double dare you motherf**ker.” - Jules Winnfield (Pulp Fiction)

I love Sam, but Ordell was really scary.

"My ass may be dumb, but I ain't no dumbass." - Ordell Robbie (Jackie Brown)


Though underrated, but Jackie is definitely one of the most badass Tarantino characters ever.

“Ordell Robbie: Is that what I think it is?
Jackie Brown: What do you think it is?
O.R.: I think it's a gun pressed up against my dick.
J.B.: Well, you thought right. Now take your hands off from around my throat, nigga.” (Jackie Brown)


Some would say revenge is a dish best served cold, but when it comes to making those who wronged you pay, The Bride knows exactly what to say.

"When fortune smiles on something as violent and ugly as revenge, it seems proof like no other that not only does God exist, you're doing his will." - The Bride (Kill Bill: Volume 1)


What a romantic way to say goodbye to the person you love when you’ve already shot them in the head and hit them with a paralyzing dart.

"No. You're not a bad person. You're a terrific person. You're my favorite person, but every once in a while, you can be a real cunt." - Bill (Kill Bill: Volume 2)


Can I get an amen?

"Women, nacho grande platters, the fellowships of fascinating individuals like Warren here. Alcohol is just a lubricant for all the individual encounters that a bar offers." - Stuntman Mike (Death Proof

This creep really knows how to get into someone’s head, doesn't he?

“You expected guys to be pestering you all night, but from your look, I can tell nobody pestered you at all. That kind of hurt your feelings a little bit, didn’t it? There are few things as fetching as a bruised ego on a beautiful angel. So, how about that lap dance?” - Stuntman Mike (Death Proof


And I want my scalps!

"Now, I don't know about y'all, but I sure as hell didn't come down from the goddamn Smoky Mountains, cross five thousand miles of water, fight my way through half of Sicily and jump out of a fuckin' air-o-plane to teach the Nazis lessons in humanity. Nazi ain't got no humanity. They're the foot soldiers of a Jew-hatin', mass murderin' maniac and they need to be dee-stroyed. That's why any and every son of a bitch we find wearin' a Nazi uniform, they're gonna die." - Aldo Raine (Inglorious Basterds)

Landa is probably the best villain in the Tarantino universe mainly because his weapon is language.

“Sitting in your chair, I would probably say the same thing. And nine nine nine point nine nine nine times out of a million you would be correct. But in the pages of history, every once in a while, fate reaches out and extends its hand. What shall the history books read?” - Hans Landa (Inglorious Basterds)

As the final song goes, “he's the top of the West always cool, he's the best; he keeps alive with his colt 45.”

"Stephen. How many n*ggers you think you seen come and go? Seven thousand? Eight thousand? Nine thousand? Nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine? Every single word that came out of Calvin Candie's mouth was nothing but horseshit, but he was right about one thing: I am that one n*gger in ten thousand." - Django Freeman (Django Unchained)  

Oh, doctor! Couldn’t you just swallow your pride and get out of there?

“Normally, Monsieur Candie, I would say "Auf wiedersehen." But since what "auf wiedersehen" actually means is "'till I see you again", and since I never wish to see you again, to you sir, I say, goodbye.” - Dr. King Shultz (Django Unchained


Mary Todd is calling, so I guess it must be time for bed. Respectfully, Abraham Lincoln.

"You’ve got no idea what is like being a black facing down America. The only time black folks are safe is when white folks is disarmed. And this letter had the desired effect of disarming white folks." - Major Marquis Warren (The Hateful Eight)  


Piss Samuel L. Jackson off, you gonna get a bullet.

“You open your mouth, you gonna get a bullet. Move a little sudden, a little strange, you gonna get a bullet. Not a warnin’, not a question. A bullet” - Major Marquis Warren (The Hateful Eight) 

These lines are just a handful of examples of how Tarantino has built an entire universe the audience can’t get enough of. So, which one is your favorite?
