The line "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse" is from the movie, "The Godfather." In the film, Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) has a conversation with his godson, Johnny Fontane (Al Martino). Fontane asks for help securing an acting role that he had been previously denied. Don Vito Corleone responds with the line to convey the message that a person either accepts Corleone's offer or dies.

In the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz," Dorothy (Judy Garland) dreams of visiting a happier place that she imagines is just over the rainbow. When Dorothy and her dog Toto arrive in Oz, she notices the starkly different environment and comments, "Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."

In the 1977 film "Star Wars", Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) describes the force as an energy field that surrounds and exists within all living beings. After explaining a battle attack plan, General Dodonna (Alex McCrindle) concludes with, "May the force be with you." Han Solo (Harrison Ford) says it again to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) just before the attack. The line has subsequently been said in every iteration of the Star Wars franchise.
