1. "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981)

Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), always ready for adventure, speaks to Colonel Musgrove and Major Eaton about the ancient city of Tanis, where the Ark of the Covenant may be located.

"The Nazis have discovered Tanis! The city of Tanis is one of the possible resting places of the Lost Ark. Yeah, the Ark of the Covenant. The chest the Hebrews used to carry around the Ten Commandments. Yes, the actual Ten Commandments. The original stone tablets that Moses brought down out of Mount Horeb and smashed, if you believe in that sort of thing. Any of you guys ever go to Sunday School? Oh, look. The Hebrews took the broken pieces and put 'em in the Ark. When they settled in Canaan, they put the Ark in a place called The Temple of Solomon. Where it stayed for many years. Until, all of a sudden, whoosh, it's gone. Well, nobody knows where or when."

2. "Clash of the Titans" (1981)

During the film, Zeus (Lawrence Olivier) gives this oratory, officially known as the Constellation of Stars:

"Perseus and Andromeda will be happy together. Have fine sons … rule wisely … and to perpetuate the story of his courage, I command that from henceforth, he will be set among the stars and constellations. He, Perseus, the lovely Andromeda, the noble Pegasus, and even the vain Cassiopeia. Let the stars be named after them forever. As long as man shall walk the Earth and search the night sky in wonder, they will remember the courage of Perseus forever. Even if we, the gods, are abandoned or forgotten, the stars will never fade. Never. They will burn till the end of the time."

3. "Star Wars" (1977)


Princess Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) a speech that includes a plea for help:

"General Kenobi: Years ago, you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to present my father's request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack and I'm afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed. I've placed information vital to the survival of the rebellion into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this droid safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope."
