Ever want to use a quote or reference to an item from pop culture? Need to quote a movie, a play, a book, or a song lyric in a legal brief or opinion and want to rely on authority?

The purpose of this Wikia is to help you find that citation.  WARNING:  This Wiki is for amusement purposes and as, perhaps, a starting point.  This is a publicly edited Wiki, which means the citations could be in error.  Always review the case and the citation itself to determine whether the citation is accurate (and review to ensure it is good law).  No legal advice is intended by this Wiki or its editors.

Contributions are welcomed.  Primary geekiness requires citation to the quote as part of a judicial opinion for the truth of the matter therein.  Merely citing it where it is the res of the dispute (e.g. copyright case over the text itself) is acceptable, but it certainly lacks persuasive value/awesomeness.
