It’s difficult to think of an actor more dedicated to the undervalued art form that is the movie one-liner than Arnold Schwarzenegger. This is because Arnie is uniquely suited to delivering lines in a style that can range from being action hero cool to ridiculously hilarious, many times within the same movie. He’s also an actor that can confidently handle the action and comedy genres, which are both goldmines for one-liners. There are so many classic Scwarzenegger one-liners that it would be impossible to recount them all here, as you could easily find 10 great ones within the same film, let alone across his entire career. For that reason, this list has been restricted to one quote per film (except where explicitly stated). The following 10 entries could easily be swapped out with 10 different quotes, but it’s hard to argue that these aren’t 10 of the best Arnold one-liners of all time.
10. Every Mr. Freeze Line In Batman & Robin
The script for the infamously terrible Batman & Robin is filled with a staggering number of one-liners, and Mr. Freeze (Schwarzenegger) spews so many ice-related puns that a whole list could be made of just those. Some of the standouts are, “Always winterize your pipes!”, “Ice to see you”, “Everybody chill” (which is followed by Freeze literally freezing a room of people), “You’re not sending me to the cooler”, “Can you be cold, Batman?”, and so many more. Arnold’s lines in this movie are absolutely terrible, but so hilarious at the same time. The actor took home a cool (pun intended) $25 million for the role and gave the world more ice puns than it ever needed in the process.
