->''Boring conversation anyway. LUKE, WE'RE GONNA HAVE COMPANY!''
-->-- '''Han Solo''', ''[[Film/ANewHope Star Wars: A New Hope]]''

->Hey, Dr Jones! No time for love, we've got company!
-->-- '''Short Round''', ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom''

A prime contender for the single most-used phrase in action scenes across the board. Traditionally prevalent in movies/TV, as it looks even dumber written down than it does spoken; however, video games have embraced the phrase with aplomb.

The phrase refers to the arrival on the scene of parties antagonistic to the speaker. While probably originally spoken mainly by protagonists, the phrase can now be equally expected to be heard by villains when the hero shows up on the scene. Originally, this trope would have been a wry indicator of the speaker's aloof nature: while the phrase would be suited to friendly gatherings, describing the arrival of a cadre of heavily-armed miscreants in the tone of a gadabout planning the evening's socializing is a good way to come off as unflappable and suave.

Or it would have been, if it had not become hijacked as the default thing that all people must say whenever anyone shows up with a mind to give them some gyp.


A brief compilation of many of these instances can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMANB6YnshU here]].

Variations include "we have company" and occasionally even "company's coming"; however not only is the key device of referring to one's antagonists as "company" widespread, it's overwhelmingly conveyed in this exact phrasing.

!!Examples:

[[folder:Film]]
* The quotes given above, comparatively early examples.
* Both ''Film/BatmanBegins'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' make sure to cement their reputation as impeccably-written masterpieces of the action genre by having a criminal say this at some point. Because criminals are a superstitious, cowardly, ineloquent lot.
* ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'', carrying on the Moore-era Bond's tradition of having all the clunkiest lines.
** Lampshaded when the driver answers, "That's okay, this is a company car."
* ''{{Terminator 2}}''. Well, at least it precedes a pretty cool exchange.
* Is it a line in ''Film/{{Tron}}''? Friend, it's even [[http://www.last.fm/music/Wendy+Carlos/_/We%27ve+Got+Company a track on the OST!]]
* Obviously it's in ''HellboyII: The Golden Army''.
* In the Podcast/{{Rifftrax}} of the second ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movie, Frodo at one point says, "We are not alone." Mike Nelson responds, "Please. It's pronounced 'We've got company.'"
* In ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' Roger and Eddy get into a chase, which prompts Roger to spout out the Trope.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury'': "Stop breathing, we've got company!" Not only a witty twist on an established classic, but arguably justifiable in the sense that Buck Rogers IS a fairly aloof kind of cat. And all back in 1979!
* Invoked by name in ''Series/{{Community}}'s'' [[Recap/CommunityS2E06Epidemiology zombie episode]]:
--> '''[[MetaGuy Abed]]''': I hate to be the "WeveGotCompany" guy, but...
* Used in the HongKong fight-scene challenge in the 18th cycle of ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Characters in ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' tend to use the phrase, for instance in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheUmbrellaChronicles''.
* In the first {{Halo}} game as you descend towards the map room the Covenant brings down all sorts of hell to stop you, the Marines' response: "We've got company, let's set the table."
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' has this quote when Sora and Co. first enter the Castle That Never Was.
--> '''Goofy''': Be careful! I think we got company!
* ''VideoGame/StarFox64'': In Bolse, a satellite orbiting Venom (the BigBad's stronghold), there's a huge energy field, that when deactivated, launches the enemy fighters defending Bolse. This prompts Falco to yell "Looks like we've got company".

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' has this with [[AffablyEvil Rourke]] when Milo goes after him after the former took the crystal.
