    Default "You, you came back!" : unoriginal dialogue in movies and TV?

    "Whatcha got there, freak?" (or some other cruel name)
    - EVERY bully in a high school snatching something, often a poem or a drawing. (ex The Dark Tower)

    Others?

    "As you know..." is crutched on pretty damn hard for exposition delivery.

    "What do we do now?"
    "We rebuild."

    After pretty much every disaster movie.

    "I didn't sign up for this shit."

    What makes it more annoying is that the character saying this should've known very well what kind of situation they were getting into, but now they're suddenly naive as hell.

    "I need to tell you something / There is something you need to know" and then doesn't say what it is before getting interrupted.

    Or the overused, "Stay with me! Stay...!"

    "If you do it, you'll be just as bad as him!"

    "You dont know what I went through on that island/prison/in the wilderness/lost at sea."

    Whenever they try and make a character more edgy when really they are just assholes. See Arrow for a great example of this.

    “It’s not what it looks like.”
    That one’s low key, but gets a lot of mileage.

    You're a hot head! You're suspended/off the team! optional: Give me your badge and gun.

    Do any of these meatheads ever learn their lesson?

    Gotta love how silly it sounds though. Did anyone ever use that line in real life? I mean, in what situation is that ever going to work for you?

    It just sounds like something you would say out of desperation. Like you're caught fooling around by the wife or something and you go "wasn't me" lol.

    "They will never be gone as long as you remember them in your heart." What is always told to a grieving family member who have just lost someone.

    "I wonder which one is the bigger criminal." Often said when it is found out an elected official or someone in power is working with criminals to further a goal.
