A titular role is a role in which the character says the title of the movie or play or book.
In the movie Out of Africa, when Robert Redford is teaching Meryl Streep how to drive, and there is all this traffic and this man drives up beside them and says, "Aww boy, Im just so tired of all this traffic, I can't wait until I get out of Africa.


In the movie Starwars, when that Raiders of the Lost Ark guy is teaching Luke how to drive. He's teaching Luke how to drive the thing, and they are in the back messing with the feathers, and this stowe-away walks by and says, "Aww boy, Im just so tired of all these star wars."

The man who says these lines has the title line, and the titular line.

The titular line (or title line) is a line in a film, book or song which includes the name of the film, book or song.
eg. In the movie "Limitless" starring Bradley Cooper, the protagonist (Eddie Morra) explains the effect that a newfound mystery pill has on his intellect. He says, "a tablet a day, and what I can do with my day was limitless." This is called a titular line.
