I saw a similar thread on the CHUD message board (I swear I don't post there, I was just checking out the Lost discussion thread), and thought it would be interesting to see what film quotes we, the fascinating and intelligent people at Xixax, incorporate into our everyday lives, in contrast to the knuckle-draggers who post on the CHUD boards.  I'll start it off:

Often, when I'm being congratulated for something, I'll toss in, "I guess the only thing I can say is, I promise to keep rocking and rolling and to keep making better films."  Actually, I usually misquote it and say "movies" rather than "films", but I'm working on that.

If I notice a friend of mine blatantly checking out a girl, he gets a "How's the peeping, Tommy?"

Big Lebowski is a constant source: "Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man," "You're out of your element, Donny!" or the answer to any instance of the question, "What is that?" -- "Obviously you're not a golfer."

If my girlfriend and I have to split up somewhere, like if I have to park the car while she goes into the restaurant to put our names in, I'll slip in a Last of the Mohicans-style "Stay alive!  Whatever may occur!  I will find you!"  She rolls her eyes, but she hasn't dumped me yet, so I have to assume she's okay with it.

Your turn.  Go.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

"You are a fool, [person's name], and you will lose everything."

from Harry Potter but really I just stole
it from my uncle because I've never seen Harry Potter.

Mostly stuff from french movies of course

It tends to be excessively goofy, try-too-hard 'cool' statements for me, like:

"Awesome. Awesome to the max." (Futurama)

or:

"Charles" (The Ice Storm)

I have also sometimes said to the ladies (and guys):

"I wanna be ON you." (Anchorman)

And climbing the ranks lately has been:

"She's in danger of getting her hair pushed behind her ear." (Zombieland)

The problem comes when you've said these things so often ironically that they start to lose their quotation marks and slowly just become how you talk...
"Should I bring my own chains?"
"We always do..."

Awww shit, Polka's giving Pas a run for his money!

Loving this already. To name a few:

Anytime anyone of my friends does something uber-pretentious or snooty:

"What are you, a fuckin' world traveler?" (My Cousin Vinny)

Gay friends and I way over-quote Mean Girls:

"[Mom] Can you go fix your hair?"

Stop trying to make _________ happen! It's not going to happen!

"So if you're from Africa, why are you white?"

One of my more recent staples, from Weeds:

"That should merit you getting some cock-amole on her face-adilla."

Haha, I forgot about Mean Girls. My girlfriend and I use "Boo, you whore," and "You go, Glen Coco!" a lot. Like a LOT.

Often times during basketball games when my team is gettin their asses stomped:

"Nothing is fucked here, dude." (Le big lebowski)
“The myth by no means finds its adequate objectification in the spoken word. The structure of the scenes and the visible imagery reveal a deeper wisdom than the poet himself is able to put into words and concepts” – Friedrich Nietzsche

My second quote (How's the peeping, Tommy?) was from Talented Mister Ripley, in case anyone didn't recognize that one. My first quote should be obvious to everyone on this board. Except Pas, I mean.

Recently, "I'm fed up with this world!".

also, the following by Sy Ableman (A Serious Man):

"...you, you are jesting?"
"I seriously fucked your wife, Larry." (note: in the movie I think its actually," I fucked your wife, Larry! I seriously fucked her!" but isn't slightly misquoting part of the fun?)
