This is considered one of the best lines in movie history.

James Bond: “You expect me to talk?”
Goldfinger: “No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die.”


Can someone explain why? Is it because it is so obvious? Is it because it is realistic? Is it because Bond got outwitted by Goldfinger?

Please explain.

I haven't seen the movie in a long time, but I'm guessing it's because it's simply deadpan humor from the villain.

I didn't know it was considered a great line...is there a list somewhere where you found that?

Not really. It may be "a" well known line, but I doubt very many people actually believe it's "one of the" BEST lines in all movies.

It's embedded into pop culture like plenty of other pop culture lines from TV and movies.

Trying to understand why is a waste of time, as there is no explanation.

If people COULD understand "why" lines or memes become memorable, advertisers wouldn't waste so much money.

A famous "line" from advertising:

You always waste half your money. The problem is you never know which half.

As far as best-known lines, Casablanca must take the cake:

"Round up the usual suspects."

"I'm shocked...SHOCKED..."

"...the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world."

"Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine."

"Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

"We'll always have Paris."

"Here's looking at you, kid."

And of course, the most famous line of them all, never spoken verbatim in the film:

"Play it again, Sam."
