Top 5 Most Iconic Movie Moments That Weren’t in the Script

The Terminator

Arnold’s iconic “I’ll be back” was a slight change from the script’s “I
will be back,” but it makes a huge difference.

The Empire Strikes Back

Right before Han Solo is encased in carbonite, Leia says, “I love you.”
Han Solo’s scripted reply was “I love you, too,” but after numerous
takes, Harrison Ford and director Irvin Kirschner felt the line just
wasn’t working. Kirschner told Ford to improv a line without thinking.
Han Solo’s reply became “I know.”

Taxi Driver

The famous “You talkin’ to me?” dialogue was improvised by Robert De
Niro. The script just said, “Travis speaks to himself in the mirror.”

Blade Runner

Roy Batty’s death monologue was modified by Rutger Hauer the night
before filming. There are some conflicting stories on how much was
changed, but everyone agrees that “lost…like tears in the rain” was all
Hauer. You can read more about it here.


“Here’s looking at you, kid” was improvised by Humphrey Bogart. Some
reports say that he first used the line when teaching Ingrid Bergman
poker in between takes.
