"Which underwear shall I wear today?"
"Wear the ones with a picture of a toucan on the front."
"No... skid marks... I wore them yesterday... I know... I'll wear the pelican brief."
"Why do all your pants have pictures of birds on anyway?"

"I'll be closing the barbershop early today. There was a coachload of punks came by to get their hair done, and we've almost finished The Last Of The Mohicans." - Barbershop (2002)


From the writers of "some sort of Star Trek":

"You think it will be difficult?"
"Very."
"Well, this is not Mission Difficult, Mr. Hunt. It's Mission Impossible."

I was just thinking how nearly every Blaxploitation film (and I think things like Barbershop are sort of throwbacks to that) mentions the title in it somehow. Although in a lot of them that's 'cos the title is just the name of the protagonist.

I think Deathstalker 2 manages somehow to be both the best and worst example of this:

Since some people seem to have branched out into TV series , I believe that Buffy the Vampire Slayer says "I'm Buffy the Vampire Slayer" once during the TV show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

What sort of a stupid name is Buffy, anyway? Was that ever addressed in the series?

Her other two names are 'Anne Summers'. The images that conjures up give me pleasure.

It's hinted that everyone finds her name funny, even the headmaster says her name "suits the fucking moronic expression on her face." Then he gets eaten by furries as narrative punishment.

It's justified when she says the name of the show as she's being asked who she is and she is Buffy the vampire slayer.

'Dr. Grant, my dear Dr. Sattler. Welcome... to the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World double trilogy franchise.'

Silence of the Lambs is a good instance.

I've just realised that the shark in Jaws probably isn't called "Jaws".

Someone in A Bridge Too Far, Dick Bogarde maybe, says something like
"I always felt we tried to go a bridge too far"

Nobody says "The Lighthouse" in The Lighthouse

The sheer number of times someone or other says "Doctor who?" in Doctor Who, though.

I watched Christmas In July last night and the heroine dropped the title at one point, but it was entirely appropriate for the circumstances.

All the Gerard Butler Has Fallen movies do this to various degrees. In the first film "Olympus has fallen" is justified as secret service codeword mumbo jumbo for "Unconvincing North Koreans have captured the White House". "Angel has fallen" puts in a weird TV news report about how "President Morgan Freeman's guardian angel has fallen from grace", which is far from the worst thing the film has to offer and does accurately represent the terrible stuff they say on American TV news. I've not actually seen London Has Fallen but it seems like an easy name drop.

Kind of, Samuel L Jackson pops up and says "I'm ballistic about this motherfucking Ecks versus this motherfucking Sever"

Are any of the Star Wars film titles used in the actual films (I exclude Solo, and possibly Rogue One)? Maybe they'd be better if the dialog was more like the melodramatic titles.
