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.

    Don't Freeze

    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.

    Why Don't You Ask Him Yourself

    Everett K. Ross: You’re telling me that a king of a third world country runs around in a bulletproof cat suit?
    Ulysses Klaue: Why don’t you ask him yourself, because he’s right outside... Bingo.

    Ross is highly skeptical at Klaue's claims that the King of Wakanda is some superhero with a cat suit. But as Klaue points out, said king with a superhero cat suit is one room over watching them using one-way glass.

    As T'Challa returns home to Wakanda to become king, he has more than a few strong women standing by him and excited to see him succeed. Between mother Ramonda, bodyguard Okoye and former lover Nakia, T'Challa is far from alone as he navigates his new role.
