Aaron Sorkin

The GREATEST Movie Line

Of ALL TIME Is ...

EXCLUSIVE

021913_sorkin_launchv2

"I'll be back" ... "You can't handle the truth" ... "Dude, where's my car?" ... some of the best movie lines in the history of cinema -- but Aaron Sorkin says the #1 quote is straight out of the '70s.

Sorkin -- the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of "The Social Network" ... and the guy who penned "A Few Good Men" ... was leaving the Chateau Marmont yesterday when our photog dropped the "best line ever" question on him.

Check out the clip for his answer ... but, we'll give you a clue -- here fishy fishy!

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. [laughs] Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears in rain. Time to die.

Class guy.


Used to deliver the mail to A-Sork at the WB.


Where I may have APPEARED as a mail schlub.


But was only a few years removed from top-film-school's title of "Next Big Thang."


Hitting-on the A-Sork's, in fact anyone on the WB lot - ? (Clooney, Eastwood, et al) -


Was your quickest exit route.


Anyway, always a class guy - always -

Hmm. I figured Sorkin's favorite would be, "Keep that guy away from my cocaine! " -Steve Martin ROXANNE

TMZ's webpages are so active they're difficult to load. Get off the "busy pages" and just have webpages that easily load. (Man...)
