This fantastical, gorgeous movie is already getting serious Oscar buzz, so why wouldn't it contain some awesome movie quotes? We're talking about Scorsese here, after all, and we're talking about the legendary director's first-ever 3D movie (and one for kids, to boot). I've compiled what I think are some of the best quotes from 'Hugo,' though I'm sure there are many more. See a favorite listed? Vote it up! And if I've left off your personal favorite 'Hugo' movie quote, add it to the list.

In 'Hugo,' a 12-year-old orphan, Hugo Cabret (Asa Butterfield) sets out on a journey through 1930s Paris to find out more about his father (Jude Law) and the mysterious automaton he's created. Hugo lives in a train station, where his uncle tends to the many clocks. There, he meets young Isabelle (Chloe Moretz). Together, Hugo and Chloe try to unlock mysteries while eluding the evil train station inspector (Sacha Baron Cohen).

'Hugo' was hailed by many critics as being one of Martin Scorsese's great films. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) apparently agreed: 'Hugo' garnered multiple 2012 Golden Globes Awards nominations, including Best Motion Picture Drama, Best Director and Best Original Score.

    Hugo: "I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason."


    Words of wisdom from Hugo Cabret. He is on Earth for a reason, even if he's not sure yet what that reason is...
