** The five-way tie for second place among actors includes two women: Creator/BetteDavis and Creator/VivienLeigh.

* The oldest quote is from ''Film/TheJazzSinger'' (fittingly, the first spoken dialogue in all of film). The most recent quote is from ''Film/LordOfTheRingsTheTwoTowers''.

Added DiffLines:

* [[AnimationAgeGhetto No animated films appear on the list]], although one quote is provided by a CGI character in an otherwise live-action film.


* ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' has by far the most entries on the list, with six. The two runners-up, ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'' and ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', each have three entries.
* Creator/HumphreyBogart is way out in front among represented actors on the list, with five entries. No other performer has more than three. His character Rick Blaine from ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' delivered four of those five quotes, making him the most prolific character on the list, again by a wide margin; no other character has more than two entries on the list, sometimes in multiple films.

** Two characters are quoted more than once in multiple film appearances: "Dirty" Harry Callahan is quoted for ''Film/DirtyHarry'' and ''Film/SuddenImpact'', and James Bond is quoted for ''Film/DrNo'' and ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''. Assuming that the multiple incarnations of the T-800 are counted as a single character, then it is also quoted for two different films: ''Film/TheTerminator'' and ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''.
* Two dialogues appear on the list, from ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' and ''Film/TopGun'' (amusingly, both films from TheEighties about aviation).
