It’s one of the most used lines in movie and television history, and I could almost guarantee you’ve heard it before.
It’s usually either a tragic moment or an act of defiance. Characters from all genres have used it. Homer J Simpson. Michael J Fox’s Marty McFly. Jim Carrey as Ace Ventura and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. John Goodman as a monster. A couple of Hobbits. Doc Oc. The Devil portrayed by Al Pacino and a doll in Child’s Play. Spider-Man. Video game characters from the 1990’s. Will Smith as a Fresh Prince and an Independence Day hero.
You get the point.
Someone was kind enough to make a video to allow us to enjoy twelve minutes worth of clips involving the line. Sound boring? You’ll enjoy it a lot more than you think. Since it’s right below this sentence, give it a click… then stick around for the poll.
Now… it’s poll time.
