Here are the best Black Panther quotes from the film based on the Marvel character with the same name.
In Black Panther, King of Wakanda T'Chaka is killed, which forces his son, T'Challa, to return to his homeland to take the throne. T'Challa is welcomed by others in Wakanda including former lover Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), but he understands that with great power comes even greater responsibility.
There is, however, one person who is not excited about T'Challa taking over as king and that's N'Jadaka/Erik Killmonger Stevens (Michael B. Jordan). Killmonger has long wanted to rule Wakanda and now strives to take down T'Challa to do just that. But luckily for T'Challa, due to his strength from ingesting a heart-shaped herb and with the help of his superhero suit, T'Challa is also Black Panther, a worthy foe of Killmonger.

Okoye: Don’t freeze.
T'Challa/Black Panther: I never freeze.
While it may seem as much in these Black Panther movie quotes that Okoye is doubting T'Challa before they go into battle, that's far from the case. Okoye is there to protect T'Challa and simply giving him a pre-game pep talk.2820Is this the best quote?
