* "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}}'':

* 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.

* ''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.
