: : Can you people tell me more about famous filmy quote 'Are You Talking To Me?'
: : In what context people use this line?

: : Thanks
: : SB

: It's from "Taxi Driver" -- http://www.msu.edu/user/svoboda1/taxi_driver/sounds.html

: In my experience, it's used by most people as a goof. In a humorous fashion.

That's interesting because in my experience it is used as an aggressive challenge: the implication being that if 'you' are talking to 'me' there will be trouble.
