    Lines to never use in movies

    Because they're cliches.

    I thought I'd compile a list. There are a few online, mostly not great, but I've pilfered what I did rate - it's the nature of the game, really, isn't it?

    Apparently

    Let's get out of here

    and it's variations is the most overused line of all time in movies. Fair enough. I'm a little more interested in the lines that are actually supposed to denote some cleverness. Sarcastic ones, in particular.

    Here's what I've got so far:


    She’s/he’s good.

    You have no idea.

    That wasn’t part of the deal.

    You haven’t heard the last of this.

    Where do you think you’re going?

    We have to get out of here – now!

    There’s been a change of plan.

    People don’t change.

    What the hell was that?

    Trust me, you don't want to know.

    Trust me, you do not want to do that.

    Come on! There’s another way out of here.

    Does this place have another exit?

    We’ve lost power. / We’re losing power.

    We’re losing him / her.

    Well, let’s just say…. [there's been a change of plan / we've made other arrangements / he's not what you'd call an ordinary__________. / someone was waiting for him. etc.]

    OK, what just happened?

    OK, am I missing something here?

    Boy, are YOU in trouble!

    This place gives me the creeps.

    Try and get some rest.

    Is that all you got?
    I’m just getting started.

    Come in. _______ was just leaving.

    How hard can it be?

    Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

    OK, this is a joke, right?

    You say that like it’s a bad thing.

    Don’t you get it?

    OK, now you’re really starting to piss me off.

    Call me a ________ one more time.

    This is NOT over.

    Tell me what you see.

    OK, this is ****ed up.

    Something’s not right. / Something doesn‘t feel right.

    We can beat this thing.

    I want your badge and your gun.

    There's a lot of arse ones. like 'the Lieutenant is gonna have my arse for this one'. Can't think of too many offhand, but I'm sure there are. maybe 'he's gonna have my arse in a sling'?

    'We don't need no stinking badgers!' (Just kidding, this doesn't crop up too often.)

    How about:
    'We're all in this together'.
    'Let's get this sonnava*****!'

    No, yes, that's good, the arse ones. Spelled the American way, of course, which wouldn't make it through the forum filters. Also

    You gotta help me. If _________ finds out about this, it's gonna be my arse.

    It's my arse on the line over this.

    and even:

    If I screw up one more time, it's my arse.

    Just thought of another, non-arse one:

    I'm not kidding around here.

    I don't know that one.

    Here's another:

    Oh. Wise guy, eh? Paulie, show him what we do to wise guys.

    Yep, that's probably in every American mobster movie ever made.

    His power just increased by #!
    The worst feeling in the world isn't loneliness, it's being forgotten by someone you can't forget.

    I have one.

    "I love her, man." There's only one guy who could get away with saying that and still be cool:

    Andrew McCarthy, in the movie, St. Elmo's Fire.
    "He was nauseous with regret when he saw her face again, and when, as of yore, he pleaded and begged at her knees for the joy of her being. She understood Neal; she stroked his hair; she knew he was mad."
    ---Jack Kerouac, On The Road: The Original Scroll

    Nice contributions, all. Here are a few more:

    No. This is not happening. Sorry. Uh uh. No.

    So you want to play, do you?

    The spider has caught himself a little fly.

    Now I've seen everything.
