What is the most repeated line in movies (excluding catch phases like "I'll be back")

There are two that I can think of that have been repeated by different actors in unrelated movies.

1- The one about a pale horse and the rider upon him was death
In Tombstone, but I know I have seen it in a couple more

2- The greatest feat the devil ever did was convinvce the world he didn't exist


Can anyone think of more or in what I movies I have seen the above two in?

"Get out of there!"

"Let's get out of here."

Re: What is the most repeated line in movies (excluding catch phases like "I'll be ba

Old westerns are full of lines that kept getting re-used:

"This town ain't big enough for the two of us."

"Get on your horse and get out of town."

(After the hero beats up a bunch of bad guys, the boss villain approaches him and says...)
"I could use a man like you."

"Anywhere I hang my hat is home."

Here's one that was used in multiple genres, from westerns to colonial adventures to sci-fi (WAR OF THE WORLDS, 1953):

"They'll probably attack at dawn."

And an old standby from jungle movies:

"The natives are restless tonight."

(The use a variation on it in THE LEECH WOMAN, 1960, which was shown on MST3K, eliciting the hilarious response from one of the MST crew, "Well thanks a lot, Margaret Mead!")

Actually, they're called cliches.

This.

And I'm getting too old to listen to that shopworn line of dialogue.

I'm pretty sure this was in Clint Eastwood's Pale Rider.

Memorable dialogue showing up in multiple unrelated films is going to mostly be cliches or biblical quotes.

My name is Inigo Montoya was what popped in my head when I read the thread title, but obviously not what you're talking about. Still one of my favorite lines though. "Offer me anything I ask for" "Anything you want... " "I want my father back you son of a bitch!" *stab*

I need to watch that again.

I don't think that I have ever heard that phrase in a movie.

Now, "I got a bad feeling about this" or, "I've got a bad feeling about this", I'll buy.

This overly-done one has been annoying me lately thanks to the new Matt Damon film coming out: "It's not a gift, it's a curse!"

After the indignant leading woman is captured by the bad guy she slaps him, now it's made clear in the film he would gut a man who dared do that like a trout on the shore, but inevitably he says some flavour of "she has fire, I like that" and the uppity chick gets away with it.
