Quotes that take you back

The idea here is to provide a quote that instantly takes you back to the movie it was in. Could be a memorable movie or just a quote that stuck with you. Don't get too obscure, should be immediately recognizable. Here are a few to get you started:

I see dead people
You had me at hello
I'll have what she's having
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse
Here's looking at you, kid
Go ahead, make my day
Shaken, not stirred
What we've got here is failure to communicate
Snakes, it had to be snakes
I could'a been a contender

Have fun

It's not the age, it's the mileage - from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Marion: You're not the man I knew ten years ago.
Indiana: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.

Here's a few more:

Do you feel lucky? Well, do you punk?

Say hello to me little friend

If you build it, he will come

Are you talkin' to me

That was him. That was Wilson, all right, and he was fast, fast on the draw.

Forget the curveball Ricky. Give him the heater.

I do believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that.

And, of course: YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH... (I could go on... great theatrical script).

Couple Grouchos:

I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it

Remember men, we're fighting for this woman's honor; which is probably more than she ever did
