: What does the famous quote "GO HEAD, MAKE MY DAY" mean? Do people use this in day to day life? and if yes in what context

"Go ahead, make my day." Spoken by Det. Harry Callahan played by Clint Eastwood, in Dirty Harry, written by Joseph Stinson.

It means that the speaker would be very happy if you continue on with your actions or behaviour because he/she could react in a manner that would be extremely pleasurable to them.
