Default Songs, movies, or tv shows that you reference in everyday life

Are there any songs, movies, or tv shows that no matter what, you can some how reference in a normal conversation. For me, I can reference King of the Hill, Seinfeld, and Napoleon Dynamite all the time. To lessor extent, A Christmas Story. I always say that everything seems like it can some how be drawn back to one of those three movies/ shows. Sometimed it is kind of embarrassing how much I can reference them. What are the shows/ movies you like to reference way too much?

"I KNOW NOTHING!!!" from Hogan's Heroes is a meme for the ages.

Our biggest quote is from the post-credits of Mighty Wind. When someone (usually a talking head on TV) says something a bit convoluted, one of us will say, "That's almost like poetry." and the other will reply, "Almost."

Another is "No one knows what it means, but it's provocative." from Blades of Glory.

From Ron "Tater Salad" White we get, "Next time you have a thought, just let it go."

Upon looking at this list, most of our quotes seem to come from talking back to the TV.

Well, I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe, but I have been known to make references, from time to time. Maybe a little more recently, but I do think we must keep our faith in the Republic, because the day we stop believing in democracy is the day we lose it. Too many believe in power - unlimited power! - and it seems that liberty is dying to thunderous applause.
But mind tricks don't work on me, so even though I have a bad feeling about this, I'll stay on target. This is a new day, and a new beginning. They want us to be afraid, because fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering. Some say we're doomed. I say they can't win - if they strike us down, we will become more powerful than they can possibly imagine.

When you're chewing on life's gristle, just give a little whistle,
and maybe things will turn out for the best.

And always... (C'mon, type along)

I tend to reference The Simpsons a lot.

"Mmmmm, [adjective]"
"Can't sleep. Clown'll eat me."
"My cat's breath smells like cat food."

We do a lot of "Princess Bride" quoting in our house. "Vizzini said to go back to the beginning..." "Have fun storming the castle!" "Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!" (my husband is half Sicilian...)


And I would get those Firesign quotes.
