Words to live by from this year's films

The perfectly-crafted movie bon mot is a thing of beauty and a joy for ever. If it can be adapted to situations in your own life, all the better. Here we assemble the lines that have been ringing around the Empire office all year, or which we think are particularly well-crafted.

1 TA-DAHHHH ..... (Thor: The Dark World)
Best line of 2013? When Loki manages to manouvre their ship into the Dark World with the greatly timed 'Ta-Dahhhh', especially after Thor has just asked him is he's mad. More

Two from Blue Jasmine: 'Anxiety, nightmares and a nervous breakdown, there’s only so many traumas a person can withstand until they take to the streets and start screaming.' 'You choose losers because that's what you think you deserve and that's why you'll never have a better life.' More

The unholy hellish retch of the guy from The Act of Killing. I quote that one endlessly. More

14 Between two apocalypses
I think my favorite line of the year is that one from The World's End. However, I was re-watching This Is The End the other day and it has so many gems: "Dear God, it's me, Jonah Hill, from Moneyball", "Channing Taint-YUM!", "Sinkhole de mayo"... They're all so dumb. More

15 RE: Best line of the year is...
Iron Man 3: "You can take away my suits, you can take away my home, but there's one thing you can never take away from me: I am Iron Man." Thor TDW: Dr. Erik Selvig: "Any questions?" Stan Lee: "Yeah. Can I have my shoe back?" Despicable Me 2: Gru: " I really hate that chicken! " Star Trek Into Darkness: Bones: "Don't agree with me, Spock, it makes me very uncomfortable. " Bones: "Damn it, man, I'm a doctor, not a torpedo technician!" Spock: "KHAAANNNN! " More
