"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!

The best movie quote was said by Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction: Ezekiel 25:17 "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee. "

Any movie by the Marx Brothers had the best one liners. "Don't look now, but there's one man too many in this room, and I think it's you" "Let me out of here, or throw me a magazine"
