    Person B: "Ok, in English?"

    A couple more.

    "It's bigger then you think. Dont trust anyone." Then most of the time the person who said that is killed.

    "We have company." Is often said when the bad guys show up.

    "I'm not here to make friends." Every reality competition show ever.

    "Things just got a lot more complicated."
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    This isn't over. Not by a long shot.

    or, at the other end...

    This ends now.

    And my all-time least favorite:

    NOOOOOOOOOOO

    Or "I don't have to kill you, I've already won"

    Or "I'm not going to kill you... letting you live will be the worse punishment."

    Of course in 100% of cases, the speaker ends up being killed by the speakee.

    That's another one. Or how about "You don't mess with family"

    Memory fails me, but there was a series some years back that seemed to be end to end stock phases. (was it a sci-fi?) I could only watch about three programs of it.
    "Can they not write any original lines at all?"
    Made me wonder if there's actually some internally circulated writer's book of pre-written lines for characters. Did the writers phone it in to the max? Or did they do it as a bet to see if they could get away with it?

    You guys should listen to how regular people talk. We don't come up with sparkling dialogue. Mostly we use the exact same phrases over and over, sometimes with pre-packaged sayings--which could have come from movies, T.V. shows, Shakespeare or the Bible. In fact, we want to sound unoriginal. Using obscure sentence constructions and $500 words calls attention to ourselves. We don't want that. We want to fit in. Unoriginal speech is the norm. You know what I'm sayin'?

    I agree, some of these are overused cliches, but others are just things people say.

    But we don't watch movies and TV shows to hear people talk like regular people. We watch to be entertained by clever and original dialogue.

    Real people also say "uh" after every 3 words, cough even when they're not dying of a respiratory disease, and play with their phones whenever they're not doing something else.
