Annie Hall: Best Lines From Woody Allen's Classic That Weren't Said By Woody Allen (Or Diane Keaton)

Posted: Updated:

"Annie Hall," Woody Allen's best known (and probably best best) film, was released 35 years ago, on April 20, 1977. The Best Picture winner -- about a romance between a neurotic New Yorker (Allen) and his tie-wearing, Wisconsin-born love (Diane Keaton) -- was a cultural sensation upon its release, and still resonates to this day. Seriously: you can't swing an old-school tennis racket on the streets of New York without hitting some girl or guy who based their entire persona on "Annie Hall."

To celebrate "Annie Hall's" 35th anniversary, HuffPost Entertainment has compiled a list of the best lines from the film not said by Allen's Alvy Singer or Keaton's titular heroine. After all, no one needs another round-up of "Annie's" best moments. (Spoiler alert: it's all of them! The thing's an unparalleled classic, y'all.)

La-di-da, etc.

1. "Can I confess something? I tell you this as an artist, I think you'll understand. Sometimes when I'm driving ... on the road at night ... I see two headlights coming toward me. Fast. I have this sudden impulse to turn the wheel quickly, head-on into the oncoming car. I can anticipate the explosion. The sound of shattering glass. The ... flames rising out of the flowing gasoline." - Duane Hall (played by Christopher Walken!)
