: : 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.
However, there is no suggestion of co-operation between the parties. The anti-social or antagonistic activity of one will give the other the opportunity to retaliate using unreasonable measures and quite possibly excessive violence.
