How Movies Have Affected Our Communication

Are you a quoter?  

Do you go around quoting your favorite movie lines?  

I've talked before about how technology has affected our communication, but after watching the following Tim Hawkins video, I began contemplating how movies and TV shows have influenced my own communication.  



We quote TV shows and movies a LOT around my house.  What about you?  And now we have a culture kind of like this Star Trek episode where Captain Picard has an encounter with the being who speaks in references: "Darmak and Jilad at Tenagra!"

How have movies and TV affected how you communicate with others?  Do you use a form of story-like communication that relies on a shared understanding of society's movies and TV show lines?  What are your favorites?
