How can you prove that it came from a movie? You can not copyright words else no one would be able to say anything. That's what trademarks are for.





easy from the perspective of this law: build a db of every line spoken in every movie. Then block all posts containing a line from this db. If this blocks too much, dang provides human appeal.
