->"If you say "live together, die alone" to me, Jack, I'm gonna punch you in your face."
-->-- Rose to Jack, ''Series/{{Lost}}''

A character delivers a OneLiner ([[BorrowedCatchPhrase sometimes a]] CatchPhrase), especially as the punch-line to a meaningful speech. The other characters repeat the OneLiner in turn, indicating their agreement.

Other characters may alter the OneLiner slightly in keeping with their personal quirks.

This is popular rhetorical device in the real world as well, especially at a public rally.

Often used with StockPhrases, especially "It's not your fault," "YouDidEverythingYouCould," and "ItsTheOnlyWay."

Especially common during a RousingSpeech. Not to be confused with OneLinerNameOneLiner, which is when the ''same'' character repeats the line.

* A well-known commercial from financial firm J.G. Wentworth: "It's my money, and I need it '''now!'''"

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* ''{{Tintin}}'''s Thomson and Thompson do this constantly, with the added gag that the echo is always spoonerized or otherwise mangled (and often, unwittingly, more accurate):
-->'''Thomson:''' "Mum's the word," that's our motto.
-->'''Thompson:''' Precisely, "Dumb's the word," that's our motto.

* "His name is Robert Paulsen," in ''Film/FightClub''.
* One word: [[Film/DogDayAfternoon "Attica!"]]
* "Oh, Captain, my Captain!" at the end of ''Film/DeadPoetsSociety''.
* "IAmSpartacus" is a variation that qualifies as its own trope.
* "Hoist the colors", ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean: At World's End''
* "Spaniard", the nom de guerre of Maximus in ''{{Film/Gladiator}}'', before his BadassBoast in which he declares "IHaveManyNames".
* In ''Film/DieHard'', Hans Gruber attempts one with John [=McClane's=] "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker"... and is shot.
* Possibly the most well-known example: [[Film/{{Network}} I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!]]
* In ''Film/CoolHandLuke'', Luke's [[FamousLastWords final sentence]], "What we have here is a failure to communicate," is taken from a speech by the evil warden.
* In ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', Data appears to have joined the Borg... but then shows his true colors by attacking the Borg Queen shouting "ResistanceIsFutile"!
* ''Film/TheLastStarfighter'' features a Rylan diplomat giving such a speech, ending with "Victory, or Death!" Which is followed by one of the Rylan officers repeating the phrase, starting up a chant among everyone assembled. ([[ReluctantHero Except Alex.]])
* In ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', there is an exchange between Ray Stanz and Winston Zeddimore about the possible implications of the fact that they've been ''really'' busy lately. It ends with Stanz quoting [[Literature/TheBible Revelations 7:12]]: ''"And I looked, and he opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake. And the sun became as black as sack cloth, and the moon became as blood."''. After the quote, there's a moment of silence, at which point Stanz finishes by saying, "[[TheDayOfReckoning Judgment Day]]". Zeddimore sighs, and repeats, "Judgment Day..." Its a surprisingly dramatic moment in such a comedic film as ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''.

[[folder: Literature ]]

* The Star Wars novel ''[[XWingSeries Starfighters of Adumar]]'' does this one better - at the end of the pre-battle speech, the assembled crowd of pilots begins ''chanting'' "Adumar".
* One of the most well-known: the [[Literature/TheThreeMusketeers Three Musketeers']] "One for all and all for one."

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* "I serve at the pleasure of the President," in ''TheWestWing'', also "Let Bartlet Be Bartlet" and "God bless America".
* "So say we all," in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' (2005): "Pilot".
* "Better dead than..." in ''Series/RedDwarf'': "Out of Time", each character finishing the sentiment with something personal.

* "To life, immortal." in ''Series/WarOfTheWorlds'', season 1.
* ''GilmoreGirls'' often have Rory and Lorelai echo each other's [[OneLiner one liners]] for comic effect.

-->'''Ray:''' Pub.
--> '''Sam:''' ...Pub.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'' has this with Jack's conclusion of a speech ("If we don't learn how to ''live together''... we're gonna ''die alone''"), used six times so far, the most memorable ones being the one used in the page quote, and Kate replying to Sawyer's "It's every man for himself!" (Jack's original speech included: "Every man for himself is not gonna work!").
** Also from ''Lost'', "Don't tell me what I can't do!" is Locke's catchphrase, but it's used many times during the series, sometimes by other characters and sometimes with little alterations.
* A fairly {{Narm}}-y example comes from a ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' ReunionShow. The Dino Thunder and [=SPD=] Rangers are facing down an army of {{Mooks}}, and [[DaChief Doggie Kruger]] says "No one gets inside our circle!" All ''eleven'' of the other rangers repeat, "No one gets inside!" This got parodied a lot on message boards, especially since seconds later, the team instantly *break* the circle charging in to take on the bad guys. So yeah.
* ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' has the "Never give up" thing, though: usually, Danny or Max would say it, and the other would repeat it.
* The Series/{{Mythbusters}} tend to repeat "busted".

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* The [[CommandAndConquer Brotherhood of Nod]] loves using both repeated phrases and call/response pairs in their speeches and rallies:

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* This happens in ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic''.
--> "If the movie stinks, just don't go!"
* Spoofed on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Stan confesses to accidentally destroying a beaver dam, and one person mistakes this for an indication that everyone's partially responsible, leading to [[IAmSpartacus a chorus of " I broke the dam"]] while Stan tries to explain that he, personally, broke the dam.
* [[{{Transformers}} Until all are one, men.]]
--> "Until all are one."\\
"Until all are one!"\\
"Until all are one... UNDER GRIMLOCK!!!"
