Film Quotes 电影经典对白

Once I was having dinner with a bunch of Brits. When Martini was served, one guy said a few words that rang a bell around the table, something like: “shaken but not stirred”. A girl next to me kindly explained to me that was from James Bond, the royal agent, who always said that when asking for a drink. My question is this: are there any other phrases or text that have gained such popularity as 'shaken but not stirred' throughout English film lines? Thank you very much.
