Trivia: Cool Hand Luke
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Narrowly averted via Meaningful Echo. The famous line, "What we've got here is a failure to communicate!" is used towards the end of the film. The first instance of the line is "What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach" (notably, the version without the indefinite article was sampled by Guns N' Roses for "Civil War").
    • Though it's also typically quoted with a thick southern accent, meaning the warden's version should be used.
