It's basically the 90's remake of Stand by Me for kids who weren't around for Stand by Me.
Here's where I out myself as a musical theater fan: whenever I'm stuck behind a slow car in traffic, I tend to blurt out, "C'mon, Dover! Move yer bloomin' arse!"

It takes every fibre of my being when sitting down at a table with others to not put on my deepest bass and growl "Ah, gentlemen/You know why we are here".
The only reason I ever use the word "plethora" is because of Three Amigos.

Anytime I'm about to do something that makes me nervous I'll wide-clap my hands and say "This is crazy, this is crazy, this is crazy..."
Just remembered 2 that my wife and I use from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels:

If a child politely asks to use the bathroom one of us will often do the Steve Martin peeing at the table thing followed by his "Thank you"

Any time somebody uses the word Oklahoma in conversation it's a race to see which of us will shout out "OKLAHOMAOKLAHOMAOKLAHOMA" like a retarded Steve Martin banging pots together.
When I hear someone being denied, I like to toss out, "Nobody puts baby in a corner."

And I would like to add that DoppleWillow's "Bored now" is fantastic.

And 93.34% less dead body.
"Kidneys and aaaayyyyyiiiple sewaaaauuuccce" from Punisher: War Zone is a fun non sequiter to bust out every once in a while.

Also whenever someone starts getting really worked up about something I'll often yell out "YOU ARE THE ONES WHO ARE THE BALL LICKERS!!!!" You know, to help diffuse the tension.
Deserve's got nothing to do with it.

Nobody, I mean NOBODY... puts ketchup on a hot dog!

After you, King Salami.

Fuck you. That's my name.

_______, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

Yeah. This one happens all the time.
I've been known to shout "SHOOTER!" after pulling off a feat. With appropriate hand gestures, of course.
When I feel sombody's bullshiting me or try to put one over on somebody and I'm present it's always "You're supect!" from Good Will Hunting.

Also when sombody gets all angry or pissed off it's "You think you tough" from Boys in the Hood. Also from this movie to my son "You gonna learn Tre, oh yeah, you gonna learn".

From TV, to deny anyone whatever it is, "No soup for you".

You're killing me smalls is always being repeated.

edit for sp..
I am glad I don't hang out with people who say "You're killing me, Smalls" because I am already tired of it from just seeing it in this thread so many times.
Another one from Good Will Hunting. I like slowly walking towards people while repeating "It's not your fault!" over and over. It usually ends with a hug.

I think we've all let loose with an "Exxxcellent" at one time or another. Twiddly fingers and all.
If someone tries to sell me something or hand me a flyer or what have you, I respond with some variant of this classic Busey-ism. The best was when some Jesus freak came up to a friend and I on the street and asked if we'd been saved. I of course rattle off something about "don't need any Jesus, we got a lot, we got a lot." The friend didn't say anything, but I caught her giving me the purest WTFURWEIRD glance I ever received. The way I figure it, if you're going to pepper your speech with random Gary Busey quotes*, those kind of looks just mean you're doing it correctly.

*And let's not kid ourselves, you are.
I can't believe I'm not the only one in the world that uses "Hey Wha Hoppened?" It's gotta be fate.

I quote a lot of cartoons that no one around me ever seem to get. Most are from The Simpsons but one of my favorites is the bus driver from King of the Hill whenever someone questions my grammar: "I don't speak no languages."

Also this.


I've always wanted to drop Nicholson's "Enjoy your clams, cocksuckers" from The Departed in a conversation.
If someone is about to touch something they shouldn't, I'll yell out "Not a finger!" from A Christmas Story.

My Nicholson standby is "Words of wisdom, Lloyd... words of wisdom."

I love saying "Wha happened?" I thought I was the only one, too.
"Jog on!" and "Yarp" get used once in a while.
And Three Amigos is like a treasure trove of good quotes I find myself repeating. "Real money, amigo money." "Sew, old one! Sew like the wind!"

The sad thing is that I sometimes drop these quotes reflexively, without even thinking about it.
Anytime a plan has finished being formulated, or more often, when someone has outlined exactly why something is going to fail or is generally a bit crap I often intone "There it is" from Amadeus.
I often call things "a bit crap" as well which I lifted from a Ben Elton sketch that had a housewife addressing the camera saying "Stockcubes; they're a bit crap". I lol'd.
Often when I get upset I mutter "Scheisse!", thanks to the tough German soldier in the truck chase scene in Raiders. It's a great word.

Yup, here too. I also do Indy's irritated "Nnh!" from when he sees the Nazis in his rear-view mirrors.
I use tons of movie quotes every day, and sometimes I forget the fact that I AM lifting them from movies. Here are two that come to mind –

Whenever a friend (but usually my brother) does something that can be perceived as weak, this response is near automatic.

My wife is a twin. In the middle of a conversation, she'll invariably say something like, "My sister blahblahblah." Too many times I respond with, "Sister? SOOOoooo, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her, too...." Usually I also threaten to turn her to the dark side.

So how are the divorce proceedings going?

Still, that's amusing IF she's patient and a genre fan....

I got mine from Run Lola Run, but otherwise agreed.

Also, whenever someone uses the phrase "to make a long story short", the near Pavlovian response if environment allows is "Too late."
On the subject of Indiana Jones, I still like to whip out "Ha ha haaaaa sonofabitch".
A most versatile one - "I think we have it."

I use the latter line ALL the time.

A few others I use a LOT:

"Game over man, game over!" whenever something goes wrong. I also one time in a lit class a couple years ago, when the power went out bellowed "THEY CUT THE POWER! How could they cut the power, man? They're ANIMALS, man!" A bunch of confused looks, unfortunately.

"This is not time for dick measuring!" from Taken.

"_____________ gargles my balls" from Knocked Up.

I also find myself talking to someone named John a lot of times saying his name like Bennett in Commando.

Also when I worked at Radio Shack, my one co-worker and I used to quote Glengarry Glen Ross ad nauseum. Roma saying "You fucking child" to Williamson was probably the most used line, that and "FUCK THE MACHINE!" in regards to a co-worker who reminded me of Shelley Levene.
I whisper "The precious" repeatedly while petting my handsome little man.
From The Thing, when my friends or I spot an unusually unattractive person on the news or elsewhere, it's "Is that a man in there, or somethin'?".

That's a great one, and will now be regularly employed by me as often as possible. Thank you very much, sir.

I still whip out "Chariots of the Gods, man. They practically own South America." as a non sequitur, but sometimes I can actually slip it in contextually.
My friends and I have had too many. One friend of mine used a lot of weird ones and made loose connections between the quotes and the moment. Like whenever we got excited about something and it turned out to be either worthless or not nearly as sweet as we thought it was we'd yell "I got two pair, holmes", like the dude in training day. Or whenever that same dude would call me he'd answer the phone like George Clooney in OUt of Sight - "Who was that the answered the phone?" in that low, almost Stallone-like timber. Those random, tenuous ones were the most fun for some reason.
