Legendary Movie Lines That Were Not In The Script

By Harry Anson

Over the years film dialogue has filtered into our society's lexicon that at times it seems we can rarely go a week without recognizing a famous line from the silver screen. Going into a business deal we amp ourselves with The Godfather's famous "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse" line uttered by Marlon Brando in 1972.

An ex-lover calling to tell you they're getting married, think Gone With The Wind's iconic "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" response by Clark Gable in 1939.

Some of these lines have become so ingrained in our language that we cannot say the words without remembering the film. Think, Arnold Schwarzenegger's "I'll be back" catchphrase from 1984's The Terminator. Some of these famous moments were purely due to a moment of inspiration and made its way to the film's final cut.

A moment of acting brilliance, an angry response to a director's unrealistic demands, or a natural shock reaction stemming from an on-set surprise, many of film's famous moments were never in the original script.

Grab your popcorn and fill up on soda as we journey through the Big Screen's most famous unscripted moments.
