50 Greatest Arnie One-Liners

Vacation Tips

The One-Liner: “Get your ass to Mars.” ( Total Recall )

If It Was Longer: “Get your ass to Mars. Or don’t. I’m just a computer recording so I won’t know either way. It’s up to you, really. Um, yeah.”

Hot Stuff

The One-Liner: “Let off some steam.” ( Commando )

If It Was Longer: “Let off some steam, you’re looking a little overheated to me. I find a nice Swedish massage and a session at the gym helps get the kinks out.”

Hamlet 2.0

The One-Liner: “To be or not to be? Not to be.” ( The Last Action Hero )

If It Was Longer: “To be or not to be? Not to be. In fact, what is it to ‘be’? Let’s put the kettle on and have a think about it.”

Helicopter Hysteria

The One-Liner: “GET TO THE CHOPPA!” ( Predator )


Cut Down To Size

The One-Liner: “Here is Sub-Zero. Now plain zero.” ( The Running Man )

If It Was Longer: “Here is Sub-Zero. Now plain zero. I know, that doesn’t really make any sense, but it sounds good, right?”

Side Splitting

The One-Liner: “Oh, he had to split.” ( The Running Man )

If It Was Longer: “Oh, he had to split, in the sense that he had to leave. That’s an American colloquial term, in case you were wondering.”

Party Pooper

The One-Liner: “I'm the party pooper.” ( Kindergarten Cop )

If It Was Longer: “I’m the party pooper and I’ve got crazy in my eyes!”

Strange Saviour

The One-Liner: “Come with me if you want to live.” ( Terminator 2 )

If It Was Longer
: “Come with me if you want to live. When I say ‘live’, I mean temporarily. Being a mere human, you're bound to die sooner or later.”

Party On

The One-Liner: “See you at the party, Richter.” ( Total Recall )

If It Was Longer: “See you at the party, Richter. Don’t worry if your boss is there – like you, he’s mostly ‘armless.”

He Means It

The One-Liner: “I’ll be back.” ( The Terminator )

If It Was Longer:
“I’ll be back… with my car.”
