Gone With the Wind“Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.”-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLnTWxpTQt4A powerful quote from the award-winning play that everyone should know or have heard of, Gone With the Wind.

The Wizard of Oz“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.. We must be over the rainbow!”The quote above is a very well-known quote from the play The Wizard of Oz, which has come to become a classic. It is referenced many times throughout many plays and movies since its release in 1939, going on to be AFI’s top one-hundred movie/play quotes in the last century. This play is a drama but falls under the subcategory of comedy because of its ending which is considered to be a good one -- a great one actually!

Frankenstein‘“You must create a female for me, with whom I can live in the interchange of those sympathies necessary for my being. This you alone can do; and I demand it of you as a right which you must not refuse.” …as he said this, I [Victor Frankenstein] could no longer suppress the rage that burned within me.” Frankenstein goes under the sub-category of tragedy in the category of drama as the ending is not one that would be pleasing to audiences/ what they wanted.
