The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000)
Playing off: Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver.
Stars involved: Rene Russo, Jason Alexander, Robert De Niro.
Quote: ““Are you talking to me?”
In the live-action adaptation of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, De Niro plays pseudo-Nazi evil person, Fearless Leader. At one point, his two inept spies, Natasha Fatale (Renne Russo) and Boris Badenov (Jason Alexander), as is often the case, fail to catch Rocky and Bullwinkle.
De Niro then says these words: “Have you liquidated Moose and Squirrel? Did you use the CDI? Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me? Then who else are you talking to? Are you talking to me? Well, I am the only one here, so you must be talking to me. And you are lying! Now catch Moose and Squirrel. And next time use the CDI on them.”
If you listen closely, you can hear De Niro’s credibility quietly dying. And the Meet The Parents trilogy approaching just around the corner, naturally.
