Q&A Friday: Favorite Movie Lines

Question: “My friends and I are total movie geeks. To the point where we routinely use lines (some of them deliberately obscure) from movies in everyday conversation. For example: If one of my boys says he needs somebody to help him move, the proper response would be: I’m your huckleberry. (Doc Holiday, Tombstone) Anywhoo, my question is: What, if any, are your favorite movie catchphrases that you use in conversation?” — Good_Ol_Boy
