What does "que veut (or veux.. I forget which one they used) dire" mean?
I'm pretty sure the veut/veux thing is "to want".
Then "dire" is "to say".
Then isn't "que" "what"?
It's in the instructions for my French homework (which is extra credit), and I can't figure it out.
Under it, it has a bunch of quotes (in French) that have something to do with the movie we just watched, if that will help to explain what "que veut dire" means.

It depends on which conjugation of "vouloir" is used. I would guess that it said "que veut dire," which is a common expression that means "what it means" or "what does it mean." The subject (it) is implied.
"Que veut dire _______?" means "what does ____mean?
This exercise is perhaps asking you "what do these quotes mean" or asking you to interpret their significance.

que veut dire doesnt make sense
que alone means that and what ever follows a que must be a subject and not a verb if a verb follows it it goes to qui
ce que means what
but still it wouldnt make sense.
it couldve been ce que je veux dire - what i want to say or ce qu'il veut dire - what he wants to say
otherwise that statement you said was wrong
