A common StockPhrase.

Its use varies. In dramatic situations, it tends to be a sign of TeethClenchedTeamwork or EnemyMine situations.

In comedies, it tends to be a sign of VitriolicBestBuds and/or TheFriendNobodyLikes situations, or subverted by the characters mangling the stock delivery (as seen in the page quote and many of the below examples).
