It must be annoying â€" screenwriters spend years trying to perfect natural-sounding dialogue, only for some movie star to come along and make it all up on the spot.

Worse still, their random inclusion often becomes much more famous than anything else in the movie â€" and before you know it, people are printing it on the poster, wearing it on a T-shirt, and quoting it at parties.

Judging by this list, if you're a screenwriter and you want any chance at all of having any of your lines becoming a classic â€" you're much better off leaving the page blank.

1. "I'm the king of the world" â€" Titanic (1997)

The most famous bit in James Cameron's romantic disaster movie wasn't even in the script. When the then-22-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio first climbed up to the front of the fake ship on set, he apparently threw his arms wide and shouted the line, presumably thinking about how famous he was about to become.

Most of the gaffers probably thought he was a bit of an idiot, but Cameron liked it so much that he wrote it into the film.

2. "Here's Johnny!" â€" The Shining (1980)

Making a joke that most people don't get anymore, Jack Nicholson improvised his now-famous line after director Stanley Kubrick made him do multiple takes with different lines of dialogue.

The line is actually a nod to the popular catchphrase used on the intro to the Johnny Carson Show, but viewers outside of America had no idea that Nicholson was referencing the show. Luckily, Nicholson's terrifying movie version of the line has now become more famous in its own right.

3. "You talking to me?" â€" Taxi Driver (1976)

Genius though Paul Schrader is, his original screenplay for Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver actually in cluded a scene that just said, "Travis talks to himself in the mirror."

Giving Robert De Niro free reign to improvise with his character, Scorsese watched as the scene took shape on set â€" with De Niro doing long takes in front of the mirror, gradually getting more unhinged before he finally got to the version used in the film.

4. "I know" â€" The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
