From Conan the Barbarian when Valeria comes back as a Valkyrie to save him.
Also slightly altered in Starship Troopers as Come on you apes. You want to live forever? Which is likely taken from the Marine's during the war as come on you son of a bitches, do you want to live forever?
And immortalized by Queen in song for Highlander as WHO wants to live Forever?

Gimme a home on the ol' prairie where I can sit in my rockin' chair reading my favorite old comic books of yesteryear!
That's interesting! I just re-watched CONAN a few weeks ago, but never picked up on that line.
You may find this amusing. It's a film written by Lorenzo Semple Jr. One of the most famous lines in the 1980 "FLASH GORDON", is when King Vultan yells out, "WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER?" That's why I said I was not mis-quoting, but giving an exact quote.
It's The Penguin in the 1966 movie "BATMAN". The submarine is being bombarded by electronic "bat-charges", all 4 villains are panicking, and Burgess Meredith says "DO YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER?", a moment or two before the Joker orders the sub to surface. One almost gets the impression that of the 4 of them, Penguin is the only one obsessed enough that he might have picked death over surrender.
All those years I felt like that line from Vultan was already a badly overused cleche, but I never connected this until yesterday. Same writer, 2 completely crazy movies.
This thread can be used for more like this. NEXT?
