I would like to remove "leave a reply" in the comment form in twenty eleven. How can I do this? Thanks in advance.

You can filter the default comment_form arguments (which is what's causing the "leave a reply").

Just drop this in functions.php or in a plugin file. It would probably be better to put it in a plugin and keep your twenty eleven theme unedited (read: easily updated).

add_filter( 'comment_form_defaults', 'wpse33039_form_defaults' );
function wpse33039_form_defaults( $defaults )
    $defaults['title_reply'] = '';
    return $defaults;

edit comments.php, and find: comment_form();

edit to: comment_form(array('title_reply'=>''))
