From "The Ref" - "Oh my God, I kidnapped my parents."

Woodie Allen in "Play it again Sam" asks a very depressive type woman he approaches what she thinks of a Jackson Pollock Painting. After she describes the pathetic darkness she perceives her world to be, Allen, who just struck up the conversation so he could ask her for a date asks: "So what are you doing Saturday Night?" To which she replies "Committing suicide." which Allen responds with "How about Friday Night?

"Go ahead. Make my day." was from "Sudden Impact", The fourth Dirty Harry film (1983). The great line from the original 1971 Dirty Harry was:

"Do you feel lucky? Well, do you punk?"

Jonathan says:
That line originated in Garry Sherman's cult classic Vice Squad (much admired by Walter Hill, who credited it for helping to get his movies off the ground in the '80's marketplace). There, it was:
"Make a move, and make my day!"

Now, Joseph C. Stinson is credited as the writer of "Go ahead, make my day" from the 1983 film 'Sudden Impact', now a catchphrase, and #6 on the American Film Institute list, AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes.

For my money, Vice Squad deserves much more credit, as a movie, and as originator of this popular sentiment (even if it wasn't a letter-by-letter lift.)

Factoids via Wiki:

"Ronald Reagan...

While president of the United States, Ronald Reagan famously used the phrase in his campaign against raising taxes. In March 1985, his address to the American Business Conference is quoted, "I have my veto pen drawn and ready for any tax increase that Congress might even think of sending up. And I have only one thing to say to the tax increasers: Go ahead, make my day."


In Kenya...

The movie Sudden Impact became popular in Kenya in the early 1990s. Kenyan kids pronounced 'make my day' as "Makmende" probably due to influence of the local dialects. Over time, Makmende was used by kids to refer to a kid who behaved like a know-it-all.

In 2010, Makmende was turned into an Internet sensation all over Kenya's Internet community when Just a Band created a superhero character in the music video of their song "Ha He.""

What an original world we live in now!
