Iconic three word movie quotes?

    Iconic "three" word movie quotes?

    I just came across this poll on IMDB http://www.imdb.com/poll/ and EVERY SINGLE ONE of the "three word" quotes is actually a four word quote contracted. That's pretty crazy that accidently every single one would actually NOT be a three word.

    Well its kinda hard to say much in only three words and most spoken quotes are going to use 'I' or 'You' in them (a good tip for doing the crytoquote in the newspaper by the way).

    Especially the last one. Seems the irony did not escape them either.

    Et tu, Brute.

    Run, Forrest, Run!

    (Is that sacreligious to place Shakespeare quote in the same post with a Forrest Gump quote?)

    Unfortunately, the daily poll seems to change each day (it's only logical).

    Except they really are all three-word quotes. A contraction is one word regardless of how many words it is formed from. Shouldn't've, for example, is only one word.

    Game over, man!

    what is so special about 3 words? Why not 5 or 8 or 27?
