Also, Blade Runner 2049.

It’s probably not a popular enough film to become widely quoted, but the baseline scene has some good (though plagiarised) bits.

15 years ago would include Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith (2005), which has plenty of popular meme moments, especially completely mundane lines that are only memorable as a result of the stilted delivery and overly-repeated viewings.

Obi-wan: "I have the high ground!"

Obi-wan: "Hello there!"

Palpatine: "I am the senate!"

Palpatine: "It's treason then!"

Palpatine: "Have you ever heard the tragedy of [Darth Plagueis the Wise]?"

Conehead Jedi: "What about the droid attack on the wookies?" (Seriously, that line is huge on reddit)

"You know how I know you're gay?"
– The 40-Year-Old Virgin, 2005. This one's gone out of fashion, but it had a life outside the movie a few years ago, usually accompanied by the screenshot of Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen.

"Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea [...] and ideas are bulletproof."
– V for Vendetta (2006). Plus the whole Anonymous mask thing in general.

"Killing me won't bring back your god damn honey!" "Oh no, not the bees! Not the bees! Auuuugh! They're in my eyes! My eyes! Aaaauuuurrrrgh!"
– The Wicker Man, 2006. Among fans of bad movies at least.

"Jak sie masz?" "Is nice!" "Great success!" "High five!"
– Borat, 2006. Everyone quoted this.

"It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward!"
– Rocky Balboa, 2006. This one's so familiar that I thought it must be from the original Rocky until I looked it up.

"McLovin'"
– Superbad, 2007

"I drink your milkshake! I drink it up"
– There Will Be Blood, 2007

"I say, when the president does it, it's not illegal!"
– Frost/Nixon, 2008. I know that's from the actual interviews back in the day, but the film re-popularised it.

"Get off my lawn!"
– Gran Torino, 2008.

"Fookin' prawns!"
– District 9 (2009). Or any reference to prawns in a South African accent, whether it's a proper quote or not.

"That's a bingo!" "Buongiorno" and various other bits and pieces.
– Inglorious Basterds (2009).

"...for you"
– The Dark Knight Rises, 2012

Honourable not-a-movie mention:

"I am the danger" "Say my name" "You're god-damned right!"
– Breaking Bad

It's weird how some of them (that Rocky quote above) make sense with no context as just an appealingly phrased expression of, uggggh, SOMETHING, and then you have that milkshake bollocks, why are people saying that like?

It’s from There Will be Blood. If you haven’t seen it then explaining it would be a pretty big spoiler, but it’s an unforgettable line which comes at an unforgettable moment. It’s not a comedy like.

Because of the mistaken collective belief that Daniel Day Lewis is a great actor - rather than the gargantuan ham that he is.

Oh aye I've seen it, but, I suppose this is more my confusion as to why people quote things that out of context make no sense. Is it a way of casting a line into a social situation to see how many other people in the room (or wherever) have also seen and appreciate the thing you like, or is it the opposite, a way of saying something you know people won't get, as I know today's youngins are wont to do?

If, for example, someone was surprised to hear I had persuaded my quasi-agoraphobic brother to go to a musical festival and asked how I did it, right, and I replied "I made him an offer he couldn't refuse", then I've succeeded in co-opting a famous line from a movie (paraphrased slightly) and applied it to a real world situation somewhat smoothly. It's the embodiment of pop culture, taking something cool from a film, and deploying it in a sort of 'household name' way in a situation where it will be understood and is appropriate.

There are other examples of things like this I can think of, but they get nerdier and nerdier. Yoda saying "do or do not - there is no try", that's one I can think of a bunch of situations where it might come up. The Dark Knight one people keep bastardizing on Twitter and empty 'content' pieces on film news sites, the [need/don't deserve] line, aye, fair enough, it's hack but it works.

But "I drink your milkshake. I drink it up". What?!

(Sorry I've gone on a tangent, I know this is a thread for memorable lines, which this line is, but the discussion turned so quickly to people using these lines outside of context and I felt compelled to declare my bafflement at this)

Similarly, somewhere recently (maybe in Infantile Language or the Zoom cliches thread), someone mentioned that people say "I volunteer as tribute", and that VERY DAY a workmate said this to no reaction. What compels people to take these social gambits?

Indeed, what compels people?

I am not sure the two things are mutually exclusive. He plays a larger than life character in There Will Be Blood but you completely believe him, and he is amazing and hilarious in The Phantom Thread. He manages to be both understated and massively hamming it up at the same time, which is a feat in itself.

With mentions of 'There Will Be Blood' and ;In The Loop', my most memorable quote is a deleted scene from In the Loop as Jamie rants about how "There was hardly any fucking blood" in 'There Will Be Blood'.

The Dark Knight (2008) is within the last 15 years and "Why so serious" was pretty huge.
"Let's put a smile on that face!"

15 years ago would include Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith (2005), which has plenty of popular meme moments, especially completely mundane lines that are only memorable as a result of the stilted delivery and overly-repeated viewings.
Honorable mention for "Do not want", taken from the English subtitles of a Chinese bootleg DVD of Revenge of the Sith.

Agreed on all of this.


Similarly, somewhere recently (maybe in Infantile Language or the Zoom cliches thread), someone mentioned that people say "I volunteer as tribute", and that VERY DAY a workmate said this to no reaction. What compels people to take these social gambits?

Indeed, what compels people?

That was me! In the Infantile Language thread. I don't think I've ever heard anyone quote the milkshake line (though I remember an SNL sketch which riffed on it), so I think I misunderstood your post as being annoyed that people were quoting things out of context in this thread, when my view was that it's very much in context in a thread about memorable lines.

But I agree completely about the "volunteer as tribute" or "winter is coming"[1] I'd almost certainly feel the same if someone came out with I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE in any situation where they weren't actually drinking my milkshake. That said, our water comes from a well down the bottom of the garden, but it's a shared well and the other user has recently put a massive diesel pump down there to water his crops, so if he manages to drain it dry and I end up in an argument with him I feel I could probably justifiably shout that line at him. In Portuguese.

Either that, or I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.
 1. I was puzzled by people saying this in inappropriate situations, until I'd heard it enough separate times to realise it was probably from something.[1]
 1. And to your point about it being a social gambit, it is. It makes you look fucking mad to say that winter is coming to someone who has never seen Game of Thrones[1] when it's the middle of a lovely spring.
 1. And is it actually coming in Game of Thrones, or just metaphorically? Or is there a character called Ian Winter who is coming? If so, in the sense of an arrival or, jizz?

It just sneaks in for this thread's cut off date, and on the topic of using quotes from films out of context in real life, it would be quite something if during the presidential election dabates Biden shouted "my allegiance is to the Republic - to democracy!" into Trump's face.

Arguably its moreso a lack of memorable lines from "serious mainstream adult drama", looking at the best picture winners in that period the only films with especially memorable dialog to me are No Country For Old Men and Birdman.

It seems like more memorable writing these is is either in big action blockbusters or on the more arty side of things that gets mainstream attention relatively rarely so doesn't tend to enter the public consciousness to the same degree.

Perhaps part of Tarantino's status is one of the few directors to step outside this?

Yes, that's what it is, I'm annoyed at what people in this thread are reporting, not at them for saying them in the place built to say them in. Sorry if anyone thought I was having a go (unless you do say these things in real life to wave your "bet you haven't seen this thing that I'VE seen" cred in people's uncaring faces in which case raspberries to you.)

I only learned really recently that Batman saying "I'm Batman" is a catchphrase and they all do it. I've seen most of the films and never twigged as it's a pretty shit catchphrase.

Same, never aware of it being a catchphrase. I read Denny O'Neil's comic adaptation of the film last night and that's one of a handful of scenes he rewrites dialogue for. Batman says to the crook "you're trespassing, ratbreath", your man says "trespassing? You don't own the night", and Batman replies "I AM the night". Far better than just telling him "I'm Batman". Sure we know that. We've the papers.
