(Apologies for the vulgarity)
I often find myself gravitating to the phrase "what's the point of life if not to give an asshole a hard time?"
I really think this is a loose adaptation from a movie, but maybe I'm really the asshole. Rudimentary googling produces no answer. Anyone know the real quote and source?
No probing analysis of my psyche or job necessary.

and Say Anything
. Can you remember seeing (and hearing!) the machine in earlier films? I'm especially interested to learn its earliest appearances.

Examples of recurring in-jokes or motifs in film and television? Examples I can think of are the appearances of "1138" in George Lucas's movies (referring, of course, to THX-1138
), and the numbers 1013 and 1121 (and, subsequently, the times 10:13 and 11:21) in The X-Files
, being the birthdates of Chris Carter and his wife.
