being from Denmark, and not having seen older Us tv-shows, movies etc. that may be required viewing for every American, I sometimes have trouble "getting" references in movies (usually spoofs/comedys). And I was hoping someone could tell me where the lines originally appeared, so here goes :

"Today is a good day to die" , (Worf says it in TNG a lot)

"I got no where else to go" (Chris Farley, Wayne's World 2)

(In brackets are the movies I saw the phrases in)





Homer: There's your giraffe, little girl.
Ralph: I'm a boy!
Homer: That's the spirit. Never give up.

I'll just add that what people are saying here fits with what I learned in my chold development classes. Basically, when young children have an important relationship in a language, they usually learn that language well.
