* "You talkin' to me?", though not the rest of the sequence, was most famously originated by Alan Ladd's character in ''Film/ThisGunForHire'' (1942). The scene is iconic enough that when ''L. A. Confidential'' had the Veronica Lake lookalike character showing one of Lake's old films, they used that scene from that movie.
* The probable origin of Bickle's monologue is the 1953 film ''{{Shane}}'':

* Parodied in the remake of ''Film/TheParentTrap'': when one of the swapped twins is addressed by a character she hasn't seen yet, she responds "You talkin' to me?" - and gets an answer: "What are you, Robert De Niro? Yes, I'm talking to you."

* In ''The Adventures of RockyAndBullwinkle'' live action movie, Fearless Leader (Robert De Niro) did this as an obvious ShoutOut [[ActorAllusion to his character in]] ''Film/TaxiDriver''. Although there was no gun and mirror involved; it was just a case of asking if they were talking to him.

A character has just gotten a new gun and checks himself out in the mirror. What does he do? Nine times out of ten, he starts [[MirrorMonologue talking to his reflection]], quoting RobertDeNiro's famous monologue from ''Film/TaxiDriver''. He doesn't even need a real gun - if he just wants to feel {{Badass}} there's always the trusty FingerGun.

* In GoodbyeChains, Colin does this with a deringer and a special quick-draw mechanism similar to the one in Film/Taxidriver. Subverted for humor when he accidentally sends the gun flying through the mirror.
* The speech is [[ShownTheirWork accurately quoted]] in [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/garfield/?comic=801 this]] ''SquareRootOfMinusGarfield'' strip.

* ''{{Series/SCTV}}'' did a series of trailers for ''TaxiDriver'' starring Gregory Peck, or stock character Sid Dithers, or Woody Allen ("I know what you're thinking, that violence isn't really my thing; that my idea of violence is a plaid jacket with striped pants, but...are you talking to me?")

* ''VideoGame/TombRaider'' has this for one of the human enemies that shot at you with semi automatics while riding on a skateboard, but replaces "talking" with "firing". This wasn't kept in the remake.
--> "You firin' at me? You firin' at me? Ain't nobody else here, so you must be firin' at me!"
