Here is a selection of memorable movie quotes where the word "man" is used in the biological, darwinist, social, symbolical, idiomatic or gender-identifying sense.

ElM,

My vote:
"You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din."

Both the final line in a great Rudyard Kipling poem and the film.

Ah ok, just out of curiosity, I don't remember that part much, what was the actual context of the quote, what makes it memorable (I'll add it anyway, just asking :))

She says is at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, right before killing the Witch King of Angmar.

He says: "You fool. No man can kill me".
Then she removes her helmet to reveal she is not a man, and she says those words. 

Trust me, it's memorable if you love the film. :)

I'm glad I asked... because now I remember it.
What makes the quote memorable is the exchange, the quote doesn't work out of context, it needs the question that goes before.

'What a clever title, lol. 

I'm not sure I understand your reference to Darwin in the intro. His theory of natural selection did assert a male/female binary but he never scientifically argued anything about gender of which I'm aware. Am I missing something?

Uh... I think I meant "man" as the species' name, or the end result of the evolution maybe the way it was meant in  "Elephant Man" but I can suppress it if it's too confusing.

Ohhh, but isn't the poll specifically referring to men specifically? If not, the mention of Darwin makes sense and I just misunderstood the poll.

I looked at the poll and the intro also says "in the... gender-identifying way," which is how I interpreted it. It seems to make sense that way, too. I'm confused, lol.
