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.
