1. "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!" (Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, 1982)
It’s been parodied so often and so mercilessly (Jon Stewart uses a version on The Daily Show occasionally) for anyone unfamiliar with the series, this is the one quote they might recognise.
Featuring a powerhouse performance from the late Ricardo Montalban, the scene sees Kirk’s nemesis, Khan, dumping him on the Regula One moon (or so he thinks).
We’ll leave the rest to the pulp-tastic, endlessly quotable dialogue...
Khan: “I’ve done far worse than kill you, Admiral. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you. I shall leave you as you left me, marooned for all eternity in the centre of a dead planet... buried alive! Buried alive!”
Kirk: “KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!” (Echo several times).
Trek Trivia: Montalban’s chest? Real. He did push-ups to make it so hefty. A lot of push-ups.
