What Famous Movie Line Do You Use in Everyday Life?

We all have those favorite movie lines that we try to work into our day-to-day conversations in hopes it’ll make someone smile. I have a few: “What’d you do?” from Tommy Boy, “Ugh, just don’t breathe on me okay?” from The Cutting Edge, and pretty much every line from Seinfeld seems to make it into my daily dialogue.

The 15 people below have some pretty great ideas on how to work in some more iconic (and not so iconic) lines into conversations on a daily basis.

#15. Still counts

“Not a movie but cool. cool cool cool.”

#14. Iconic


#13. That’ll do

“That’ll do pig, that’ll do.”

#12. At least

“At least 2x a week on “so I got that going for me”

#11. Yassss

“Hold onto your butts.”

#10. The Fifth Element

“I only speak two languages, English and bad English.”

#9. Bold move

“That’s a bold move, cotton. Let’s see how it plays out.”

#8. On everyone’s list, I’m sure


#7. A classic

“Why don’t you make like a tree, and get out of here” – Back to the Future”

#6. Useful in so many situations

“How about a nice warm glass of shut the hell up”

#5. Every time

“I can taste it…it’s in my mouth” every time one of my buddies cut the cheese.”

#4. The Dude

“Whenever I pass someone on the highway, or I’m first off the line at a green, I shriek “Witness me!”

Of course, the Dude’s most versatile “Well, that’s just like, your opinion, man”

Half the people I live with are all in a Three Flavours Cornetto-posting facebook group, so memes from Shaun, Hot Fuzz and World’s End, especially Leslie Tiller tripped and fell on her own shears/was fucking murdered are common to just be shouted randomly. As are greetings of “Mornin’ Angle””

#3. Generational, probably, but valid

“Alrighty then, from Ace Ventura fame.”

#2. Always popular

“Alright alright alright.”

#1. Even more amazing when your name is actually Shirley

“don’t call me Shirley”

And, of course, we can’t leave out, “Party time! Excellent!”
