Sometimes the dialog in a movie is spoken so fast that you miss some of it.

Or the action scenes are so intense they make it hard to hear what the actors are saying.

Or you are so focused on getting the last bits of popcorn that you zone out and don’t hear a line.

I am here to help. Here are some bits of dialog from famous movies you might have missed.
