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!"

* One of the commercials for ''[[Wrestling/{{WWE}} [=WrestleMania=] 21]]'' had several wrestlers trying to do the line. At the very end, Batista pulls it off perfectly. A week afterwards, he said it in response to a rant by Triple H, further proving his GenreSavvy gimmick as well as being an obvious reference to said commercial.

* Occurs in ''AshesToAshes'', where one of the villains does it while carrying out an armed robbery. Of course the detectives recognize the quote, and even catch the guy when they see him doing it again.
* In ''StephenFry In America'', a documentary series where the British actor travels around the US in a black cab, he gets to fire a .44 Magnum revolver. He does the whole speech (as well as the ''Film/DirtyHarry'' speech), quoting it correctly. And makes it entirely non-threatening, because he's the only person in the world who could do that. And everyone loves him for it.
