Are there any famous English catchphrases in foreign language television and cinema? Think of this as the Foreign language equivalent to "Hasta la vista, baby!"

Catchphrases in American television and cinema are routinely used as shorthand when referring to the show. Clint Eastwood made "Go ahead make my day" famous. Matt Stone and Trey Parker made, "Oh my god, you killed Kenny - You bastards!" into something easily identifiable with South Park. Jerry Maguire had "You complete me" and "Show me the money." Heck, we even know "Where's the beef? and "I'm not gonna pay a lot for this muffler!"
In a slightly different vein though, Arnold Schwarzenegger inspired us with his complex and nuanced understanding of Spanish, by saying "Hasta la vista, baby!"
And this one led me to wonder, in foreign language films, are there any English lines that have risen to a similar cult status in their respective language, and if so - what are they?
