    "An iconic character with an iconic dialogue is what makes this movie good. William Wallace saying, "They may take away our lives, but they'll never take our freedom" quote before a war definitely deserves a standing ovation. "

    "I'm really torn between the bench scene and the idiosyncrasies dialogue. That "Your move, chief"  speech made me realize that not everything learned in books. And Sean talking about her late wife? Made me cry. Hats off to you, Robin Williams. "

    "Al Pacino as Coach Tony D'Amato was really inspiring and at the same time, totally memorable character especially for athletes. This is the kind of speech for them. To be honest, I even cheered for Miami Sharks after his speech. "
