Blazing Saddles Hedley Lamarr: Qualifications? Applicant: Rape, murder, arson, and rape. Hedley Lamarr: You said rape twice. Applicant: I like rape.
Hot Shots! Part Deux Saddam: Now I will kill you until you die from it, you imperialist yankee doodle dork of a pig!
Last Action Hero Nick: There are lots of things worse than movies: politicians, wars, forest fires, famine, plague, sickness, pain, warts, politicians... Jack Slater: You already mentioned them. Nick: I know I did. They are twice as bad as anything else.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Jurassic Park Malcolm: Now eventually you do plan to have dinosaurs on your, on your dinosaur tour, RIGHT ?
Chicken Run Rocky: You see, flying takes three things: hard work, perseverance and... hard work. Fowler: You said "hard work" twice! Rocky: That's because it takes twice as much work as perseverance.
Cannonball Run II Don Canneloni: In the past, the Canneloni family was the most powerful of the families. We controlled drugs, prostitution, extortion, prostitution, gambling... Slim: Uh, you said "prostitution" twice. Don Canneloni: Well, I like it.
Used twice in . First with the ADAA, the American Dodgeball Association of America, and then with Patches O'Houlihan's Five D's of Dodgeball: Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive, and... Dodge.

"The first rule of Fight Club is: You do not talk about Fight Club. Second rule of Fight Club is: You do not talk about Fight Club."
has the airport announcer right at the beginning: "Welcome to Tokyo International Airport. Welcome."
Lost in Translation used this in the famous "Holy Hand Grenade" scene. "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceedest on to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
Monty Python and the Holy Grail The "Five is right out" line is referenced in another example of redundant repetition; see
The Powerpuff Girls. has so many examples that they would fill this page.
"Manos" The Hands of Fate Michael: "She's my baby. She'll understand. She's my baby. She'll understand."
The Master: "Arise my wives. Give ear to the words of Manos. Arise my wives! And hear the will of Manos!"
Torgo: "There is no way out of here. It will be dark soon. There is no way out of here."
"There is nothing to fear, madam. The Master likes you. Nothing will happen to you. He likes you."
"Dead? No, madam. Not dead the way you know it. He is with us always. Not dead the way you know it. He is with us always."
Basically just T o r g o . He seems to think the Master would not approve.
Even Torgo's theme is redundant.
Even the title is redundant when knowing that "manos" is Spanish for " hands." Hands: The Hands of Fate
In Disney's animated version of , during the Wizards' Duel, one of the rules is that there's no cheating (ie it's against the rules to break the rules).
The Sword in the Stone Used in Charity's monologue from :

In the Turkish translation of (not to be confused with " Star Wars ", aka The Man Who Saves the World Turkish Star Wars), the line "The Jedi's strength comes from the Force." turns into "Jedi'ın gücü Güç'ten gelir." which in Turkish roughly means "The Jedi's power comes from the Power.", roughly. That translation has now become a minor Turkish meme.
In spanish that turns in "La fuerza del jedi proviene de la Fuerza"
If you want to get technical, the word ending -ling means young/beginner. So Youngling means young-young. Sorta made the line "He killed the younglings" lose all drama, as well as just making most people crack up.
An MGM short from 1935 called La Fiesta de Santa Barbara uses this for humorous effect during one of its narrator's helpful translations: "You may be asking, what is a 'fiesta'? Well, 'fiesta' comes from the Spanish word 'fiesta', which means... 'fiesta'."
The infamous features this prediction from the opening narrator Criswell:

Future events such as these will affect you in the future.

Possibly justified, as the two are regularly confused for each other.
Disney's animated :
Robin Hood Prince John: I sentence you to sudden, instant, and even immediate death!
And then again not a minute later when he stops the execution (because Little John has a knife at his back)
Prince John: Stop! Executioner stop! Hold your axe!
"If I tattletale, I'll die till I'm dead."
: "The party of the first part shall hereafter be known in this contract as the party of the first part..."
A Night at the Opera Also, from : "Members of the faculty and faculty members, students of Huxley and Huxley students. That about covers everyone."
Horse Feathers Dug from does this a lot:
My master made me this collar. He is a good and smart master and he made me this collar so that I may speak-
SQUIRREL! [looks to distance for a few seconds] Dug:
My master is good and smart.
It's not possible!
Oh it is because my master is smart!

One of the many Narmy lines from .
The Last Airbender Yue: This time we show the fire nation that we believe in our beliefs as much as they believe in theirs.
Also, "There is a spiritual place. The city was built around this place." And, "We have to find teachers, teachers to teach you bending!" Although it has been pointed out that the latter actually sounds like a line that Sokka from the original series would say, being such a Deadpan Snarker. In the movie, though, Sokka says the line completely seriously.
when The Skeleton explains its plan.
The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra The Skeleton: Once I am bought back to life, together you and I will rule the World together.
The advertising tagline that appears on the movie poster for the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World film: "An epic of epic epicness."
Also, about halfway through the movie, the evil ex-girlfriend ninja delivers this gem: "Next time, I'll be deadly serious next time."
Let's not forget Scott introducing his teenage girlfriend to his roommate: "Hey, Knives, this is Wallace Wells, my cool, gay roommate. He's gay."
Scott at one point uses the insult "You cocky cock!"
From What Happens in Vegas: "She is a wily temptress [...] and what do wily temptresses do, Jack? They tempt, in a wily fashion."
Cranked Up to Eleven from :
Derek: Maybe you don't understand that the world doesn't revolve around you and your 'Do whatever it takes, ruin as many people's lives, just so long as you can make a name for yourself as an investigatory journalist, no matter how many friends you lose, or people you leave dead and bloodied along the way, just so long as you can make a name for yourself as an investigatory journalist, no matter how many friends you lose, or people you leave dead and bloodied and dying along the way?'
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country Chekov: I don't understand. If there was another ship, surely the assassins beamed aboard from that vessel, not Enterprise. Spock: You're forgetting something, Mr. Chekov. According to our databanks, this ship fired those torpedoes. If we did, the killers are here. If we did not, whoever altered the databanks is here. In either case, what we are looking for is here.
That's not so much 'redundancy' as Spock meticulously completing the syllogism.
Lampshaded in :
Robin Hood: Men in Tights Prince John: Send word to one and all, and all and one... it's a little redundant, isn't it?
Prince John: SHUT UP!!
From , after Regina has gotten back together with Aaron despite knowing that Cady likes him:

From The Gamers: Dorkness Rising after a TPK:
Leo: You are supposed to keep healing me!
Gary: Which brings me to my lack of powers which I didn't have after I lost them! Did I mention losing my powers?"
Lampshaded and justified in :
Get Smart The Mole:
It's over, Max. I'll be taking that briefcase now.
If you want it, you'll have to take it.
That's... what I just
I know; I was just trying to annoy you.
