    The most OVERUSED lines in films....

    Let's put 'em all here, folks.

    The lines of dialog that need to be retired. The lines that are written specifically for the trailers (and subsequently make me NOT want to see the flick)........



    "Let's get out of here!"

    "This is not good...."

    "What is this place?"

    "The clock is ticking."

    "The party's over."

    "Welcome to the party."

    "We're/I'm going in."


    "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    "He's gonna have to (x), in order to (y)," where x and y are play-on-words opposites.
    (Sorry for the mathish. It's my first language.)

    Example:
    "Johnny has died, but his dancing is so bad, he can't get into Heaven. He's going to have to learn to get down (that's x) in order to get up (that's y).
    "Down and Up. Coming Fall 2009."

    my hated ones:

    "Ooh! That's gotta hurt!"
    "That's gonna leave a mark!"
    "May God help us all!"
    "It's not a question of if, but when..."

    and overall movie/tv:

    "VEGAS BABY!"

    Re: The most OVERUSED lines in films....

    Its not really a "line" so much as just an scene that I've seen repeated far too many times to the point where it's predictable. Here we go:

    A girl leans over her dying/dead boyfriend (most likely the protagonist) and she's saying something along the lines of "Don't leave me! Please!". Yet at this point it is more than predictable that he is going to be revived by any of the following: A kiss, performing "CPR" (A.K.A. kissing but making it look like CPR) or, in the case of Michael Bay being the director of the movie, a visit to robot heaven where the hero is brought back to life just because he was considered a great leader (Ha).

    Now I know its a big part of most movies' dramatic and exciting moments, and some have actually dealt with this "hero death" climax scene in a more unique way than others, but some movies just dead on copy it without much change.

    Some lines that bother me:

    "Lets do this."

    "We're not going to make it!"

    "A boy and his dragon, a bond that can never be broken"

    Probably the most HTTYD obsessed person here. =3

    Cool Re: The most OVERUSED lines in films....

    "... and may God have mercy on our souls..."

    Richard Jenkins once told me an hysterical story about when he was working on "The Core" - the remake of "Journey to the Center of the Earth" - (which he and Stanley Tucci immediately renamed "Boring to the Core"); the Director wanted Richard, the ship's commander, to start the ship and exclaim, "and may God have mercy on our souls" - and Richard refused. He said, "I can say 'I hope this works' or 'Hey - cross your fingers' or 'say a prayer' or something like that..." and the Director pulled Richard aside and said, "The Writer wrote that - and I need you to say it as written..." and Richard started laughing, "Wrote that?! NOBODY wrote that! They've just be saying that same line since Talkies were invented!" - and the whole set heard him, and everyone was laughing as well. Richard had a ton of stories from the movie, because (a) the story never made any sense, and (b) the whole cast knew they were making a piece of cr*p...
    "I've got the heart of a child..." - I keep it in a box, next to my bed...
