Classic Movies in Three Lines

Scott and I had an interesting conversation about whether you could boil down some classic sci-fi movies into three lines. Since I've kind of been feeling like I've been losing my memory for movie trivia (I actually forgot Ian McKellen's name - I had to refer to him as "Magneto". So sad.), this is a worthy exercise.

The key is not to necessarily think of the three most famous lines, though that's what they often are. These are lines that I think sum up each act of the movie, so think of them as linse that sum up the beginning/middle/end.

Here are some of the ones that we thought of - I can't remember all the ones we did - and some of the ones that I've thought of since.

Aliens
"Game over, man!"
"Ripley!"
"Get away from her, you bitch!"

The Terminator
"I'll be back."
"Come with me if you want to live."
"There is no fate but that we make."

Terminator 2: Judgement Day
"I'll be back."
"Come with me if you want to live."
"There is no fate but that we make."

2001: A Space Odyssey
"Open the pod bay doors, Hal."
"Just what do you think you're doing, Dave?"
"My God, it's full of stars..."

Um, really blanked on the other ones.  Scott?
