Talking 'n Stuff

I have certain phrases that when I think of them, or when I say them, it instantly reminds me of a specific character or movie. Today, I'll share two of mine. First, is from Winnie the Pooh.
Every single time I hear or think the phrase, "Oh bother!" It always, always, always makes me think of Winnie the Pooh. Anyone else? Or is that just me?

Moving along, similarly, when I hear the phrase "Nigh impossible" it always makes me think of Pirates of the Caribbean.

What are some phrases that make you think of specific movies or characters?

I love how you encourage interaction in your posts!! There is of course the inimitable word "inconceivable!"

@mindy: That's one of the new things that I've picked up on from reading various asking questions at the end of your post, it really gives people even more of a reason to comment on your blog and starts a conversation!! Thank you for noticing!

Inconceivable is definitely worth mentioning!

How many people use the phrase "nigh impossible"? I mean, it just doesn't seem that common.

@zachary j. miles: I actually think it quite a bit....I don't say it. Actually, if I recall correctly, I said think or say.
