Arnold Schwarzenegger credits The Terminator (1984) as his big breakthrough in Hollywood and deservedly so! It raised the bar for action genre films and gave Arnold his best character to date. Schwarzenegger, as T-800, became an iconic villain and an iconic hero in his own might. After Terminator: Judgement Day (1991), we, unfortunately, got a slate of Terminator films that were anything but successful. However, with the release of Terminator: Dark Fate, not only did we see the return of Arnold and Linda Hamilton as Sarah Conner, but James Cameron marked a comeback to the Terminator franchise as well.

When you think of Arnold Schwarzenegger, you think of his iconic dialogues. When you think of his iconic dialogues, the first one that pops up is "I'll be back." But, did you know that the 72-year-old actor didn't think the quote would become as iconic as it did? While talking to ComicBook, Schwarzenegger shared, "I’ve learned very quickly with the I’ll be backline. We never thought that this would ever be repeated. No one even thought twice about that line. All of a sudden, when the movie comes out, people come up to me and say, 'Can you say this line? I’ll be back. Oh my God, it’s such a great line.'"

"So, I don’t know, like when I said I’ll stick around and put the knife through someone’s chest… Or like, it’s another tumor, it’s not a tumor at all. It’s the way I pronounce words that makes these iconic lines because people have fun repeating it with that accent," Arnold added.

Well, "I'll be back," became so iconic that the line ranked in the 37th position on the American Film Institute list of 100 Best Movie Quotes.
