What are some examples of classic movie dialogue which are instantly recognizable from sound alone?

I am working on some animated segments where the audio will consist of sound clips from classic movies.
I want to use clips which are instantly recognizable, even without seeing who the actors are or what the movie is. Some famous scenes just don't work if you can't see the visual component.
(For instance, I think the filibuster scene in "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington" is pretty unmistakable from audio alone. Jimmy Stewart has a distinctive voice and the dialogue is specific to that film.)
Can you help me find more?
