20 Insanely Awesome 2017 Movie One Liners

You laughed. You cried. You cringed.

As fun and exciting as many of 2017's biggest movies were in terms of fast-paced action and eye-melting visual effects, how great would any of these films be without sharp, witty scripts that allowed audiences to become easily invested in these heroes and their journeys?

To that end, there's nothing quite like a pithy one-liner, hilarious quip or emotional, dramatic monologue to keep the viewer riveted and have them coming back for repeat viewings.

These 20 movies, be they absurd, over-the-top blockbusters or more reined-in, subdued dramas, have served up some of the year's most memorable dialogues, from genuinely inspirational life lessons, to staggeringly savage put-downs, and lines so freaking weird you'll never be able to forget them.

Though in many instances it was tough to pick just one line from each movie, these are the quotes that, above all else, have embedded themselves in fans' brains and will continue to endure even as 2018 rustles up its own share of endlessly quotable one-liners...

20. "If You're Nothing Without The Suit, Then You Shouldn't Have It" - Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man Homecoming Tony Stark Angry

At the conclusion of the Staten Island Ferry fight, Iron Man arrives to clean up Spider-Man's mess, after which he chews him out for his reckless behaviour and decides to take the Stark suit back.

Peter protests, insisting that he's nothing without the suit, to which Stark brilliantly replies, "If you're nothing without the suit, then you shouldn't have it."

It's a rare line of true wisdom coming from the usually quip-happy Tony Stark's mouth, and though it was used in most of the movie's trailers, it still had considerable emotional weight when Stark uttered it in the final movie.
