Disappointing movie quotes

This was proposed by a Facebook friend, so I thought I might try it here.

Change a famous movie quote so that it keeps the same meaning, but loses all emotional impact.

For instance:

"You can't fool me. There isn't any clause referring to the sanity of the participants in the contract."

"I never drink . . . Cabernet."

"Frankly my dear, I don't care much."

The first rule of Fight Club is, you don't talk about Fight Club.
The second rule is identical to the first.

You had me at "hey, what's up".

Luke, I'm your dad.

I ate his liver with some baked beans and a good beer.

You talkin to me? No? Oh, sorry.

I'll reluctantly admit you're a deity, but only while hastening to add that you're small.

We would be fairly certain of destroying those creatures if we dropped a nuclear weapon on them from our starship high overhead.

Yes, I have killed many people, but they were all enemies of my country.

My ship made the Kessel Run very quickly.

I am quite harmless and would not hurt even a bothersome insect.

You should not tussle here in this secure facility, given the national importance of its functions.
