I try to use movie quotes in life but no one ever gets them. I've lived in countries where people are completely movie oblivious (jdc can back me up). Even the educated ones wouldn't get a The Godfather, Casablanca or Die Hard reference. When I worked with Frenchmen they would quote a few movies and TV shoes all the time so I got into that. Most of the time though, I am just the movie nerd of the group.
