I can't say that I was one of the early adopters of the Black Panther craze. To be completely honest, I had no intention of even seeing the movie until a ticket was purchased for me. 


Judge me not..

I just didn't know much about the movie or story so I thought I could pass it up. Little did I know Black Panther would be a TOTAL GAME CHANGER that would leave me with tons of quotables I'd be repeating and thinking about for days. 

As a result, I've compiled a mere fraction of my favorite quotes. If you've seen the film, check out some of the best of the cheeky, deep and down right hilarious one liners below.

You'll immediately recognize these moments so no further explanation is needed. Did any of your favorites make the list?

"Did he freeze?""Like an antelope in headlights."

If you have ever made a man stop in his tracks…you will appreciate this line.

"The real question is WHAT ARE THOSE!?"

Shuri, plays around with her brother, King T'Challa (Chadwicke Boseman) Best way to keep a movie relevant? Add in jokes that will stand the test of time!

"Delete that footage"

There are times when even royalty will have to make request to avoid going viral on the internet.

"Just because something works, doesn't mean it can't be improved."

Just a gentle reminder that nothing is set in stone.

"One more word and I'll feed you to my children– just kidding we're vegetarians."

I may be the ONLY person that found this line HILARIOUS. I probably disturbed half the theater with my cackling. 

"Show him who you are."

*pumps fist in the air*

"Is this your king?" 

This quote sent shivers down my spine! Also, Michael B. Jordan's "Hey Auntie" line deserves an honorable mention, because LOL

"Don't scare me like that colonizer."

Another moment I cackled beyond belief. Most def a win for the culture.

"You're a good man, with a good heart — and it's hard for a good man to be king."

This is one of those quotes that really make you think…is it possible to be in power while having a heart?

"You get to decide what kind of king you are going to be."


"Does she speak english?""When she wants to."

Oh did I mention that shade and sass were in full effect in this movie?!

"Wakanda forever."


"If you weren't so stubborn you would make a great queen." "I would make a great queen because I'm stubborn– if that's what I wanted."

A little stubbornness never hurt anybody. Plus well behaved women rarely make history anyway *shrugs*

"More connects us than separates us — but in times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one tribe."

On a scale of 1 to deep this quote was an ocean! It had half the theater shooketh with how close it hit home.

"Nah, just bury me in the ocean with my ancestors that jumped from the ships. Because they knew death was better than bondage."

One Time for all my woke folks!
And there you have it…Wakanda at its best!
