[[folder:''The Dark Knight'' trilogy]]
* A small one in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'':
--> '''Harvey''': [[IAmSpartacus I am the Batman]].
* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' features several:
** When Bane first comes face-to-face with Batman:
--->'''Bane:''' Let's not stand on ceremony here... Mister Wayne.
** Soon after:
--->'''Bane:''' I will show you where I have made my home, then I will break you. ''[hits a detonator, causing a Tumbler to fall through the ceiling]'' Your precious armory! Gratefully accepted! We will need it. ''[Mercenaries raid Applied Sciences]''
** And later in the film,
--->'''Prisoner''': The child of Ra's al Ghul.
** And soon after,
--->'''Ra's al Ghul''': Did you not think I would return, Bruce? I told you I was immortal.
** Before the climax:
--->'''Batman:''' [''about the Pit''] You think you're the only one who could learn the strength to escape it? Where's the trigger?
--->'''Bane:''' But I never escaped.
** In the climax:
--->'''Talia''': But he's not the child. And though I'm not ordinary, I'm a ''citizen''.
** Plus a truly awesome one in the denouement, to Detective John Blake:
--->'''Clerk''': You should use your full name. I like that name: Robin.

[[folder:''Pirates of the Caribbean'']]
* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'':
--> '''E''':You'd best start believin' in ghost stories, Miss Turner. Yer ''in'' one!
* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest''
--> '''Elizabeth''': It's you it wants, don't you see?
** A rare example of a ''closing'' Wham Line: "So tell me, what's become of my ship?"
* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'':
** During the meeting of the Brethren Court, the pirate captains vote for who should be the Pirate King. As usual, each captain votes for himself (or herself, in the case of Elizabeth and Mistress Ching). Then Captain Jack Sparrow casually says "Elizabeth Swann", giving Elizabeth two votes, where everyone else has only one, [[SheIsTheKing making her the new Pirate King]].
** "The wind's with us." Said twice, by opposing leaders. Cue the Maelstrom.
** "The Dutchman must have a captain."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Marvel Cinematic Universe]]
* ''Film/{{Iron Man|1}}'':
** The line that founded the entire Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and changed comic book movies forever, "You think you're the only superhero in the world? Mr. Stark, you've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet. [I'm] ComicBook/NickFury, Director of SHIELD. I'm here to talk to you about the [[Film/TheAvengers Avenger Initiative]]."
** "The truth is... I am ''ComicBook/IronMan''." It's not the line itself, but the fact that Tony Stark delivered it ''in front of a live audience''.
** Throughout the film, PhilCoulson struggles with introducing his department as the [[OverlyLongName Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division]]. At the end of the film, he shortens it with: "Just call us ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}."
* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', Schmidt is explaining to the SS officers [[StupidJetpackHitler his developments for a powerful weapon]] when one officer notices the map of locations Schmidt intends to destroy.
-->'''SS officer''': Berlin is on this map!
* ''Film/TheAvengers''
-->'''Steve Rogers:''' Doctor Banner, now might be a really good time for you to get angry.
-->'''Bruce Banner:''' That's my secret, Captain. [[TranquilFury I'm always angry]].
** There's also a small funny one near the beginning, not so much for the audience as for that poor mobster...
-->'''Black Widow''': I'm in the middle of an interrogation, this moron is giving me everything.
** And later, in the same vein: "So that's your play?"
** "''Phase 2'' is SHIELD uses the Tesseract to build weapons!"
** The Other saying that to challenge Earth "is to court death" isn't much of a Wham Line until we see that he's talking to Thanos.
* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'': "Who the hell is [[spoiler:Bucky]]?"
** And another:
-->[[spoiler:'''Arnim Zola''': [[MeaningfulEcho Cut off one head, two more shall take its place.]]]]
** Two lines that threw the entire past few films into perspective:
-->[[spoiler:'''Arnim Zola''': (as a newspaper headline detailing Howard and Maria Stark's car crash appears) Accidents happen.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Senator Howard Stern''': (whispering) Hail Hydra.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Star Trek'']]
* In ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'', there are three, relatively close to one another.
** The first is when Chekhov and his team are examining a ship's wreckage on the planet under consideration as a test site for the Genesis Device, and he comes across a belt buckle with the name "Botany Bay" written on it
--> *confused, and slightly worried* "...Botany Bay?" *a look of horrified realization comes across his face* "Botany Bay! Oh no...!" *full blown panic* "We've got to get out of here now!"
** This is followed shortly, by Khan confronting Chekhov, and explaining the dire situation he and his men face, and features two by Khan himself:
-->'''Khan''': "''Admiral'' Kirk... sent seventy of us into exile on this barren sand heap with only the contents of these cargo bays to sustain us."
-->'''Chekhov''': "You lie! On Ceti Alpha V, there was life! A fighting chance-"
-->'''Khan''': "''[[SuddenlyShouting THIS]]'' [[TheReveal IS CETI ALPHA V!]] (long pause) [[ApocalypseHow ...Ceti Alpha VI... exploded six months after we were left here. The shock shifted the orbit of this planet, and everything was laid waste.]]"
** After further explaining the situation to them, however, Khan suddenly raises a hand, and his expression changes from on of confusion, to epiphany, to elation, as he says
--> "[[EurekaMoment ...You didn't expect to find me; you thought this was... Ceti Alpha VI]]. Ah! Why are you here?" *grabs the collar of Chekhov's suit, and lifts him into the air one handed* "''Why''?"
** Also, who can forget this gem from Kirk:
-->"[[MagnificentBastard I don't believe in the no-win scenario]]."
** And lastly, while the audience already knows about Spock's sacrifice, it certainly counts as one to Kirk:
-->'''Kirk''': "Engine room, well done, Scotty."
-->'''Bones''': "[[TearJerker Jim... I think you'd better get down here]]."
-->'''Kirk''': "Bones?"
-->(''the screen flashes to Spock's chair, which is empty'')
--> '''Bones''': "...Better hurry."
* In ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' after the trial the crew wonder what ship they'll get to replace the destroyed ''Enterprise'', and reason that it will probably be ''Excelsior''. The shuttle heads for the ''Excelsior'' .... then as we hear the familiar fanfare, goes around it to reveal the ''Enterprise-A''.
-->'''Kirk''': "My friends.....we've come home."
* From ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', as the ''Enterprise'' travels back in time and notice Earth's appearance has changed.
-->'''Data:''' (''reading sensors'') Population: approximately 9 billion... all Borg.
* In [[Film/StarTrek the 2009 movie]], before Vulcan gets consumed by a Romulan-made black hole.
-->'''Chekov''': Captain, the gravitational sensors are off the scale. If my calculations are correct, they're creating a [[ApocalypseHow singularity...]] [[ExplainExplainOhCrap that will... consume the planet.]]
* Another ''Franchise/StarTrek'' example comes from ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', wherein the main antagonist gives this.
-->'''John Harrison''': John Harrison" was a fiction invented the moment I was awoken by your Admiral Marcus to help him advance his cause. A smokescreen to conceal my true identity. My name... is... ''[[TheUntwist Khan]]''.
** And one mirroring one of the ''Wrath Of Khan'' examples above:
--> '''Scotty:''' [[ContinuityNod "Commander Spocků I think you better get down here."]]
[[/folder]]

----
* ''[[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]]'':
-->'''HAL 9000:''' [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that. ]]

* ''Film/AFewGoodMen'': "If you ordered Santiago not to be touched, and your orders are always followed, then why would it be necessary for him to be transferred off the base?"
* ''Film/{{Airplane}}''
-->'''Dr. Rumack''': "Every passenger on this plane who had fish for dinner will become violently ill in the next half hour"
* In ''Film/AllAboutEve'', the audience is initially led to sympathise with Eve and feel sorry for her. Even when she seems to have betrayed Margo's trust, her apology ''seems'' sincere. That is, until Karen asks her if there's anything she can do...
-->'''Eve:''' There ''is'' something you can do. Something most important.
* ''Film/AmericanBeauty'': "This is my first time."
* ''Film/AmericanPie:'' "And this one time, at band camp, I stuck a flute in my pussy."
* ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'':
** "Houston, we are venting something out into space." This is the point where everyone realizes that, yes, the spacecraft is having ''real'' problems--it's not just the instrumentation.
** [[MemeticMutation "Houston, we have a problem."]] is the best-known, but also "One whole side of the spacecraft is missing. Right by the high gain antenna, a whole panel is blown out, right up... Right up to our heat shield", which really makes everyone worry that [[ShootTheShaggyDog all their efforts may have been for nothing.]]
* In Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/{{Batman}}'': Not apparent to the audience at first, the Joker's favorite PreMortemOneLiner serves as this to Bruce. They were the same words the mugger said to young Bruce after murdering his parents.
-->'''Joker:''' Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
* ''Film/BattleLosAngeles'' has one for the Marines while they are getting briefed on the "meteor shower." "These objects are not falling at terminal velocity. ''They are slowing down.''"
* ''Film/ABeautifulMind'': John lived alone in college.
* ''Film/BridgeToTerabithia:'' "Your friend Leslie's dead."
* ''Film/CarlitosWay'': "Hey, [[ChekhovsGunman remember me?]] [[DiabolusExMachina Benny Blanco from the Bronx?]]"
* ''Film/{{Charade}}'':
** Cary Grant's character pursues one of the villains across the balconies and finds him discussing his plans with his two co-conspirators, who are telling him what he just did was a "dumb move". Grant pushes his way into the room and says:
--->"Yes, it was a dumb move, Herman! What is the matter with you???"
** By the end of the movie, Reggie's convinced that Carson Dyle is dead, her friend Peter is a murderer, and Mr. Bartholomew is the only man she can trust. With this in mind, she's running away from Peter, towards Mr. Bartholomew, when Peter suddenly cries:
--->"Reggie, wait!!! That man is Carson Dyle!"
* ''Film/CharliesAngels''
-->'''Dylan:''' [spelling with Scrabble letters] Enemy.
-->'''Knox:''' [kisses her] I know.
* ''Film/ChildsPlay 1'' didn't really have a WhamLine per se, but the first words to ever come out of Chucky's mouth shocked many audience members the first time.
---> You stupid BITCH!!! You filthy slut, I'll teach you to FUCK WITH ME!!!
** The most recent of sequels, Curse of Chucky, had a WhamLine but not by Chucky itself. At one point the innocent child says: "Chucky says life's a bitch, and then you die like a stuck pig."
* ''Film/{{Chinatown}}'': "She's my sister AND my daughter! [[ParentalIncest My father and I]]... do you understand?"
* ''Film/TheCiderHouseRules'' : Mister Rose is the father.
* ''Film/{{Clue}}'':
** "I shot her." --Wadsworth.
** "[Mr. Boddy's] secret? Oh, haven't you guessed? He's the one who's blackmailing you."
* ''Film/TheConspirator'': "There should only be three," referring to the number of nooses on the gallows.
* ''Film/TheConversation'' by Creator/FrancisFordCoppola has an interesting variant on this: a WhamLine that turns on which word a character stresses in the sentence "He'd kill us if he had the chance."
* From ''Film/CSATheConfederateStatesOfAmerica'':
--> '''Horace''': Me and Fauntroy... we kin!
* ''Film/DeadAgain'': "I never meant to hurt you, Margaret." A bit unusual in that it's not the line so much as *who* says it.
* ''Derailed'': "Laroche, I chose this prison." Made even better in that it comes shortly after a wham moment when the viewer finds out that Charles unluckily got "placed" in the same prison as Laroche.
* ''Film/{{Downfall}}'': "Steiner couldn't raise enough men."
* ''Film/DragMeToHell'': "I've found your button."
* ''Film/ErinBrockovich'': "Would it be important if, [[ChekhovsGunman when I worked at the plant, I destroyed documents?"]]
* ''Film/EvilDead2013''
-->'''Ash''': Groovy. (Turns and looks at camera)
* From the movie ''Film/{{Explorers}}'': "Ehhhh, what's up, Doc?"
* From ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast & Furious 6]]'':
--> '''Ian Shaw''': Dominic Toretto? You don't know me. But you're about to.
* ''Film/FightClub'':
** Plays with this with the repeated line, "It's called a changeover. The movie goes on, and nobody in the audience has any idea." While this line appears earlier in the movie in reference to a projectionist inserting subliminal porn into movies, it's repeated by the narrator later in a fourth-wall breaking manner at a critical moment that the protagonist (and we, the audience) are starting to realise that certain things we'd taken for granted have actually all been delusions suffered by our protagonist and that we therefore have to go back and re-interpret the film so-far.
** ''"Is that a pretty accurate description of our relationship, Tyler?"''
* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'':
-->'''Rex''': The time has come for [[TitleDrop the Cobra to rise]]. You will call me... '''Commander'''.
* After Dr. Miranda Grey in ''Film/{{Gothika}}'' speculates about the psychological profile of a culprit trying to cover his tracks, this line by Doug's accomplice leaves zero doubt about the culprit's true nature and that Miranda's life is in danger.
-->'''Sherrif Ryan:''' Well you're right. I do fit the profile. Long-time friend of Doug's, access to the prison. '''I never did get a kick out of torturing animals, though.'''
* ''Film/HardCandy'': "Aaron told me you did it before he killed himself."
* Algernon, assistant to the scientist Foot, from Music/TheBeatles movie ''Film/{{Help}}'': "It's more than my job's worth to stop him when he's out like this. He's out to rule the world, if he can get a government grant." Following the revelation that the Beatles made a big mistake getting help from Foot, he saw what the ring that Music/{{Ringo|Starr}} wore could do: "Fantastic! With a ring like that I could--dare I say it--rule the world."
* ''Film/HellraiserInferno'': As Pinhead informs Joseph what has happened, he reveals it in one line:
-->'''Pinhead:''' WelcomeToHell.
* ''Film/{{Hostel}}'': "Pay me? I pay THEM!"
* ''Film/HotelRwanda'': "Cut the tall trees! Cut the tall trees now!" Also doubles as a RealLife wham line since it also marked the beginning of the 1994 Rwandan genocide and the deaths of over ''one million'' civilians.
* ''Film/TheHouseOfTheDevil'': "You're not the babysitter?"
* ''Film/{{Inception}}'':
** "The reason I knew inception was possible was because I did it to her first. I did it to my own wife."
** Also, "How did we end up here?"
* ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'':
-->'''Henry Jones, Sr.''': Well, I didn't trust her. Why did you?
-->'''Walter Donovan''': [[BigBadFriend Because he didn't take my advice.]]
* ''Film/JamesBond''
** ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'': "Who mentioned anything about removing it?"
** ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'': [[ArcWords "There's no point in living,]] [[MeaningfulEcho if you can't feel alive?"]]
** ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'': "Well, my name is Eve. Eve [[AdaptationalBadass Moneypenny]]."
* ''Film/{{Juice}}'': "[[DrunkOnTheDarkSide I am crazy]], and [[FaceHeelTurn I don't give a fuck]]".
* ''Film/JurassicPark''
-->'''Alan Grant:''' You breed raptors?
* Two after the climax of ''Film/KarateWarriors'', both from Chico (Creator/ShinichiChiba). The first, after catching the kid he'd protected for much of the film tossing expensive heroin in the ocean (under the mistaken assumption that they were the ashes of his deceased father), is "You stupid kid, these weren't his ashes!" Then, just over one minute later, Chico proceeds to confess to him, "The way your father died... I want you to know the truth: ''I killed him.''"
* ''Film/KillBill'': "Is she aware... that her daughter is still alive?"
* ''Film/KungPowEnterTheFist'': "The Evil Council... are aliens from France!"
* ''Franchise/TheMatrix'':
** ''Film/TheMatrix'': "What good is a phone call... if [[WipeThatSmileOffYourFace you are unable to speak]]?"
** ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'': "This will be the 6th time we have destroyed it, and we have become exceedingly efficient at it".
* ''Film/{{Maverick}}'': In the final scene; reveals who the real [[TheChessMaster chessmasters]] [[XanatosGambit are:]]
-->'''Maverick:''' My old pappy always used to say, "there is no more deeply satisfying religious experience... than cheatin' on a cheater."
-->'''Sheriff Cooper:''' I never said that ''once!'' You've been misquoting me ''all your life!''
* ''Film/{{Memento}}'':
-->"Sammy didn't have a wife."
::: and
-->'''Leonard''': '''When it's done, I'll know! It'll be different!"
-->'''Teddy''': "I thought so too! I was sure you'd remember. But you ''didn't!''"
* Towards the end of ''Film/MenInBlack'':
-->'''Kay:''' I haven't been looking for a partner. I've been looking for a replacement.
* And what is ''Film/TheMiracleOfMorgansCreek'' that's got the whole state in such a tizzy? "Six! All boys!"
* In ''Film/MortalThoughts'', Demi Moore is being interrogated by police about the murder of her best friend's husband. She is asked about the time of an event, and says "when they found my husband's body," revealing for the first time that ''two'' people are dead.
* ''Film/MysteryTeam'': "Let's all just take a chill pill."
* ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet''
** ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors''
-->'''Neil:''' Oh my God. You were his mother.
** Another from ''[[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors Dream Warriors]]'' is when the heretofore heroine starts sing-songing the Freddy poem, and when she stumbles on the last line, Nancy, the heroine of the first movie, makes her entrance finishing the rhyme from the doorway.
-->'''Nancy:''' Never sleep again.
** ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare''
-->'''John Doe:''' I know why you let me go.\\
'''Freddy:''' Oh. Do you think I'm your daddy? Mm-mm! Wrong!\\
'''John Doe:''' But you let me live!\\
'''Freddy:''' Only long enough for you to bring me back ''my daughter!''
* ''Film/{{Oblivion 2013}}'' :
** "I'm your wife."
** "No. We are not an effective team."
* In ''Film/{{Oldboy}}'', Oh Dae-Su confronts the man who imprisoned him for 15 years which leads to this:
-->'''Lee Woo-Jin:''' You keep asking me why I locked you up. You should be asking "Why did I let you out?"
* ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'': Mac passes a piece of chewing gum to (supposedly) deaf/mute inmate Chief and Chief says "Thank you." This is the reverse of what happens in the book, as the reader knows this secret from the beginning and, we find out, so does Mac. See Literature for the corresponding WhamLine.
* ''Film/{{Orphan}}'': "Tell him the little girl in that picture is not really a little girl. She's a grown woman."
* ''Den Osynlige'' (but clumsily ruined in its ForeignRemake, ''Film/TheInvisible''): "I'm alive!"
* ''Film/TheOthers'': "Is that how she killed you?"
* ''Film/ParanormalActivity 4'': "He looks just like his mother."
* ''Film/TheParentTrap'', from the Lindsay Lohan version:
-->'''Annie, disguised as Hallie:''' Maybe it's because [[BrokenMasquerade he thinks I'm Annie.]]
* From ''Film/PhantasmOblivion'':
-->'''Mike''' So when's he coming back?
-->'''Jody''' Jebediah Morningside [[CameBackWrong never does come back]]...
* ''Film/PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles'': Neil Page has finally reached Chicago, so he says his goodbyes to Del Griffith before taking the train home. But during the train ride, Neil remembers something about Del that seems off, so he heads back to the station and finds Del still sitting there.
-->'''Neil:''' Del, what are you still doing here? Why aren't you going home?
-->'''Del:''' I, uh... I don't have a home. [[DeadAllAlong Marie's been dead for eight years.]]
* ''Film/ThePrestige'' has two: "A brother? [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins A twin?"]] and the following exchange, though, like the ''Advent Children'' example above, the Wham factor is due to who says the line.
-->'''Borden''': ''You must be -''
-->'''Angier''': ''Lord Caldlow. Yes, I am. I always have been.''
* ''Film/PrimalFear'' ends with one ''hell'' of a wham: "[[TheKillerInMe There never was an Aaron, Counselor]]."
* ''Film/{{Primer}}'': On the second iteration of the bench scene, "I hope you're not implying that any day is unimportant at Cortex Semi." The words themselves aren't important; what's important is that Aaron says that line even though Abe, exhausted, had failed to say the line it had been a reply to on the first iteration, revealing that Aaron had used a fail-safe and was repeating lines from memory, too.
* ''Film/ThePrincessBride'': "...when I hired Vizzini to have her murdered..."
* ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'': "You're pregnant."
* From ''Film/{{Psycho}}'':
-->'''Sheriff Al Chambers:''' Norman Bates's mother has been dead and buried in Greenlawn Cemetery for the past ten years.
* ''Film/{{Rebecca}}'': "I ''hated'' her!"
* ''Film/RedEye'': "Just keeping the focus on you and your father."
* ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'':
** "You have your mother's eyes, her hair. I was told you died with her." Classic WhamLine example: you don't expect it, it's a major reveal (Nathan's been dressing up his daughter like her dead mom, wig and all, and told his friend she's ''dead''), and it comes in the middle of a song where it's practically glossed over in favor of a much less shocking reveal ("I'm your... godmom").
** Even bigger example: "He's been poisoning your medicine!"
* ''Film/ReturnToOz'':
** "You will be rather attractive, one day, not at all beautiful, you understand, but you have a certain prettiness, different than my other heads...I believe I'll lock you in the tower for a few years, until your head is ready. And then I'll take it."
** "''My'' Ruby Slippers. They just... fell out of the sky one day- you were so anxious to get home. They're ''very'' powerful: they made it possible for me to conquer the Emerald City! [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame Thank you.]]"
* ''Film/TheRing'': "Why did you help her? You weren't supposed to help her!"
* ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'': "Knowing that...our father loved you more than me." (Emphasis on "our")
* ''Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes'': "[[BigNo No!]]" Caesar the chimpanzee's first spoken word.
* ''Film/{{Saw}}'': After the whole situation is resolved, Leigh Wanell's character finds a tape recorder, left by Zepp, and plays it. "Hello Zepp", says Jigsaw, revealing Zepp was just another pawn in the killer's game.
* ''Film/{{Scream|1996}}'' has a few good ones.
-->'''Billy''' We all go a little mad sometimes.
** And then not 4 seconds later...
-->'''Stu''' (with the Ghostface voicebox): Surprise, Sidney!
* From ''Film/{{Se7en}}''
-->'''John Doe:''' Envy is my sin.
* ''Film/{{Serenity}}'': "These are just a few of the images we recorded and you can see... it isn't what we thought."
* ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'': "Come now. You really think you're the only one who can play this game?" This serves as the audience's warning that Holmes' ability to plan his strategy before the fight won't help him this time.
* ''Film/TheShining'': "You've always been the caretaker."
* For laughs: Creator/MelBrooks' 1976 ''Film/SilentMovie'' was just that, with all dialogue on title cards which gets hilariously subverted in the scene where they ask mime Marcel Marceau if he would appear in their film. In the only audible dialogue in the whole movie, we ''hear'' Marcel--whose work is exclusively silent--say "Non!"
* ''Film/SimonBirch''
-->'''Rev. Russell''': A lefty. Just like me.
* ''Film/SkyHigh'':
--> '''Gwen:''' And to mark this occasion, we've planned a special tribute to the most powerful super-being ever to walk the halls of Sky High. [[EvilAllAlong Me]].
* ''Film/SleepawayCamp'': Angela. Such a lovely name. Why I believe it means 'angel'! Why, yes, I'm ''sure'' it does! I know you're going to like that name, [[UnsettlingGenderReveal won't you Peter?]]
* An example of the final words of a movie being a Wham line: [[Film/SomeLikeItHot "Well, nobody's perfect!"]]
* "It's people. Film/SoylentGreen [[ImAHumanitarian is made out of people]]."
* ''Film/StageDoor'': "It's Kay. She jumped before I could stop her."
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** The most famous WhamLine of all: [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack "I am]] [[LukeIAmYourFather your father."]] Unfortunately, [[PopcultureOsmosis the fact the line is]] [[ItWasHisSled so well known]] tends to reduce the effect.
*** Earlier than that, ''"No, [[ThereIsAnother there is another]]"''.
** In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'': ''"Everything that has transpired has done so according to [[TheChessmaster my design]]!"''
* From ''[[Film/BabyGeniuses Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2]]''
-->'''Bill Biscane:''' What? Did you think I went though all this trouble just because Dad liked you best?
* ''Film/{{Sunshine}}'' :
-->'''Icarus:''' '''Fire in the oxygen garden.'''
-->'''Icarus:''' ''' ''Five'' crew members.'''
* In the third and final [[ShowWithinAShow story-within-a-story]] from '''Film/TalesFromTheDarksideTheMovie'', "Lover's Vow":
-->'''Carola/ The Gargoyle:''' YOU PROMISED NEVER TO TELL!
* ''Film/TheTallMan'':
-->'''David:''' (''to Mrs. Johnson''): Mommy!
* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'': it's near the end, but damn, is it a Viewer Punch.
-->'''T-800''': There is another chip. And it also must be destroyed.
* ''Film/{{Tootsie}}'': "I'm ''Edward'' Kimberly"!
* Delivered by [[SixthRangerTraitor Sentinel Prime]] in ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon''.
--> '''Sentinel Prime:''' Indeed I am. What you must realize, my Autobot brothers, is we were never going to ''win'' the war... [[KnightTemplar For the sake of our planet's survival]], [[DealWithTheDevil a deal had to be made...]] [[FaceHeelTurn with]] ''[[FaceHeelTurn Megatron]]''.
* ''Film/TheUsualSuspects'' goes from a usual heist film to something else altogether when Kobayashi walks in and says "I work for Keyser Soze."
* Chillingly inverted in the CrapsackWorld of ''Visioneers'', in that it's read on the back of a business card after what first appears to be the WhamLine. "[[KilltheOnesYouLove Kill the thing you love]]."
* ''Film/{{Wanted}}'': "You're my son."
* ''Film/TheWave:'' "Here is your leader!" (shows a recording of none other than AdolfHitler)
* ''Film/WhatEverHappenedToBabyJane''
-->'''Blanche:''' I watched you get out of the car and...I wanted to run you down. Crush you.
* ''Film/WhenAStrangerCalls'': "Jill, this is sergeant Sacker. Listen to me. We've traced the call... [[TheCallsAreComingFromInsideTheHouse it's coming from inside the house]]."
* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'': Judge Doom reveals himself to be a Toon, and on top of that, the Toon that killed Eddie's brother.
-->'''Judge Doom''': Remember me, Eddie? When I killed your brother, I talked... ''(voice gets high and squeaky)'' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis JUST...LIKE...THIIIIIIIIIS!]]
** And earlier, when Eddie is [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique interrogating]] R.K. maroon about his deal with Cloverleaf Industries to sell his studio and the Acme gag factory.
-->'''R.K. Maroon:''' I've been around Toons all my life! I didn't want to see them get destroyed!
* ''Film/WitnessForTheProsecution'' has two: "You didn't do it alone," followed shortly by "I knew he was guilty!"
* In ''[[Film/XMen1 X-Men]]'', [[spoiler: Wolverine and Rogue]] have been chased and attacked several times by Magneto's band of mutants. The X-Men come to the conclusion that Magneto's after [[spoiler: Wolverine, possibly due to his self-regeneration abilities]]. Then Magneto corners the pair in a train station and has [[spoiler: Wolvie]] completely at his mercy...
--> [[spoiler: Wolverine]]: "What do you want from me?"
--> Magneto: "You? Whoever said we wanted you?" *turns to look at [[spoiler: Rogue]]*...
