One of the most memorable things about movies, and tv, is dialogue. You can go to your grave knowing all of the best lines of cinema.

Who hasn't spent hours in parking lots of bars, drunk, replaying the dialogue of the classics of Hollywood?

A film can look look gorgeous, but the words, the words make it all come together. Maybe I'm biased.

Great dialogue and memorable quotes are what keep us coming back. Our chance to relive, reenact and be a part of the story.

Redditor No_Housing_4819 wanted everyone to share some of our most memorable film moments, they asked:

"What's your favorite movie quote?"

The Hobbit

"Honestly out of all the hobbit quotes this one from the movie, not the book, gives me the greatest swelling of emotions:"

"Galadriel: Mithrandir, why the halfling?"

"Gandalf: Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? I don't know. Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage." ~ cowabungaboogaloo

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
