Clark Gable shocked audiences as Rhett Butler when he delivered the immortal line “Frankly my dear, Gone With the Wind” at the end of Gone With the Wind (1939).

"and that was the story of a the boat that they said could never sink, with not enough lifeboats, and a captain who made mistakes but was steadfast til the end. and a night that so cold that the water itself froze, in parts, and split the boat into pieces. a great jewel was lost that night, a symbol of love and youth and betrayal, and maybe a bit of truth as well. we call that boat the "titan"

Brian Johnson: [closing narration] Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...

Andrew Clark: ...and an athlete...

Allison Reynolds: ...and a basket case...

Claire Standish: ...a princess...

John Bender: ...and a criminal...

Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

So, I had planned to marry Peter, but I married Jack instead.
Thank goodness my father was right.
Life doesn't always turn out the way you plan.
But Jack, Jack gave me the perfect gift:
a stamp in my passport.
He took me to Florence for our honeymoon.
I guess you might say he gave me the world.
Peter once asked me when it was that I fell in love with Jack,
and I told him, it was while you were sleeping.

that one is iffy since it's obviously in the title song, but - and it's been a long time since I've seen Help! - appearing in a song, sung, is not "said" or "dialogue," so I guess it fits

"Once more, we have survived the threat of war and found a fragile peace. I thought I could give you all the gift of the freedom from war, but I was wrong. It's not mine to give. We're still a young planet. There are galaxies out there. Other civilizations for us to meet and to learn from. What a brilliant future we could have. And there will be peace – there will be peace when the people of this world want it so badly that their governments will have no choice but to give it to them. I just wish you could all see the Earth the way that I see it. Because when you really look at it, it's just Superman IV: The Quest for Peace"
