There are many movies that live and die by the strength of one great movie quote. Movies like Star Wars and Terminator, while both great movies, had that one amazing line that defined the franchise.

Dr. Nathan Yau created a group of charts that outlines the top 100 movie lines in Cinema as determined by the American Film Institute in scientific manner. An example of one of the charts is a line graph that displays the level of problems versus the time that they had it a la Apollo 13's "Houston, we have a problem."

The charts are all very accurate and varied in terms of appearance. Each quote is represented in a new and interesting way. If you were ever wondering about the science behind movie quote magic then this chart is must-read material.
