Arnold Schwarzenegger is the ultimate action hero. With a combination of bodybuilder muscles, strength and his infamous Austrian accent, the popularisation of his dialogue is inevitable. Roobla looks at some of his most memorable quotes, from the bad-ass Terminator in Judgement Day to a desperate Dad in Jingle All The Way.
“Get to the chopper!” – Predator
A firm favourite amongst gamers, Schwarzenegger’s famous line from Predator has encouraged large amounts of memes and viral videos.
“I’ll be back” – Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Terminator 2 is quote heaven and the source of most of Arnie’s great one-liners. This line can be used in many different situations, just don’t forget the accent.
“It’s Turbo Time!” – Jingle All The Way
All feelings about this awful film aside, it’s amusing to see Arnold in such a silly and light-hearted role. This cheesy line is often used to poke fun at the disaster that is Jingle All The Way, and Arnie’s radical break from his tough guy roles.
“I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle” – Terminator 2: Judgement Day
This infamous quote by the naked Terminator has influenced an array of media. Grand Theft Auto named a mission after it and Austrian Death Machine wrote a song about it. It’s the epitome of bad-ass.
“Hasta La Vista, Baby” – Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Judgement Day makes the cut again, this time with a cheesy post-kill quote. It’s a blend of serious but cool, perfected with Arnie’s ever so serious and blank expressions – no wonder it’s on t-shirts.
“I’m a cop you idiot!” – Kindergarten Cop
The actual quote isn’t anything special, but Schwarzenegger’s accent when he raises his voice is priceless. It’s all about the accent.
“Who told you you could eat my cookies?” – Jingle All The Way
This mix of a big muscly man with a thick foreign accent saying a childish line is great. It’s been made into some pretty funny memes.
“AaaAaAaAaAaAaAah!” – Total Recall
Though not exactly a quote, Arnie’s acting as he chokes and decompresses in the Martian atmosphere is great. See similar happenings in Predator.
He’s done some pretty sketchy films, but many awesome ones. Whatever your opinion of him, it’s clear Arnold Schwarzenegger has great quoting potential.
