Obscure Movie Quotes

They don't actually have to be all that obscure, but I was thinking the other day about movie/t.v. quotes I use in actual conversations (or that occur mentally in the midst of conversations) that I really don't expect the other person to recognize at all. Do you do this, and if so, what quotes do you use? Here are some of mine. Does anyone recognize where they're from? From least to most obscure.

"Way, Ted." Useful response to "No way!"

"Nonsense. You're only saying that because no one ever has." Useful anytime someone suggests something can't be done.

"It's like my dad always said. Sooner or later everybody gets shot." Useful response to apparently inevitable situations.

"Shazbat!" Useful in place of cursing.

"Things change. People change. [breathy] Interests rates fluctuate." Useful in response to things changing

"I'm right on top of that, Rose." Useful when your boss asks about progress on an assignment

There're a couple more I can't remember right now, or can't print. Obviously there are also some I use that much better known. But I just get curious about this. Unfortunately I've got movie and t.v. quotes running through my head for almost any situation. Sometimes I've got scripture. I wish the ratios were reversed.

I use:

"What's _____, precious?"

"Life is pain, and anyone who tells you differently is selling something."

"...anybody want a peanut?"

"Resistance is futile."

and a few more, mostly from those first two movies, so, yeah, not so obscure.

Yeah, on the less obscure side I've used, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it does." recently. I also got to use "People wearing masks are not to be trusted" just this afternoon.
