I think there are venues where the Serenity one might qualify ... but this isn't one of them.

After seeing various videos (particularly NerdHQ) with Alan Tudyk joking about it, it doesn't hurt so much.

We do not go to those venues :P

Okay, let's see what SwiftKey gives me:

Elementary, my dear [friend of mine is a bit too rare even if you didn't have doublepost or factory automation]
Say hello to my little [girl forced to heal an unending series of people]
Toto, I've got a feeling we're [not going to have to get used to that]
Bond. James Bond [with the trebuchets]
I'm a leaf on the wind. Watch [the video and audio and video clips and more details about the unnecessary message for when you have no castles as I had that myself and my 67th Newpixbot]
Goonies never say [never been to the Lord]
You have my sword. And my bow. And my [67th Newpixbot]
Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You [shall be blessed above all peoples]
Revenge is a dish best served [from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt]
They may take our lives, but they'll never take [our word for it to destroy the original email address]
Play the game of Time! castle.chirpingmustard.com Hotdog Vending Supplier But what is this?

Yeah, none of these are even a little bit obscure, I think.
I expect it's dependent on age and location/language area? I've seen a couple of Bonds, Fellowship of the ring (but didn't remember the scene as quotable until I googled it), Oz, and Princess Bride. The latter two don't seem to be particularly well known around here.

But in addition to geographical communities, there are also virtual ones, and I wouldn't expect any of the referenced movies to be particularly obscure among the subculture of people who would take the time both to read xkcd and to comment in its forum comic discussion threads.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Interestingly, the number of those quotes with which I am familiar due to cultural/internet osmosis is very different to the number of those quotes of which I've actually seen the original source.

Say hello to my little [bit of the new York].
Toto, I have a feeling we're not [the new York].
I am a leaf on the wind. Watch [the new York].
Goonies never say [that I am so I am].
You have my sword. And my bow. And my [resume].
Revenge is a dish best served [as well].
They may take our lives, but they'll never take our [website].

If that's what predictive text has decided that you were most likely to write in that situation, you both frighten and slightly interest me ;)

But the tower knows.

My Sony Android built-in keyboard:

Hello, I am Inigo Montoya. You [are talking about the same time because of the world's scientists.]

It clearly involves some of my recent searches/messages...
In all fairness...

Android swiftkey, Norwegian and English.

* Toto, I've a feeling we're not [going to be a childless woman]
* You have my sword. And my bow. And my [niece and I will be in the pipeline]
* They may take our lives, but they will never take [a look at the end of the universe]
* We can't stop here, this is [a good time to get a chance to win the game]
* Do androids dream [of a new one of the most annoying sicknesses ever seen]
* Revenge is a dish best served [from the top of the universe]

I omitted a bunch of other attempts. They all either concerned the universe or ended up going to the airport.


[I am confused with the party and we're back home to the airport now I am a beautiful person who is the best way to get a chance to win the game is at the end of the universe og big rip off the phone with a few days ago and I will be in the pipeline train station and the other hand I am a beautif . . .]

Android/SwiftKey, usually picking the primary suggestion but sometimes picking one of the others if the main suggestion is boring.

Never give up, never mind that you are looking for a while to get the hang of it.
The first rule of Fight club is a problem with the connection between the two of us.
Blessed are the forgetful: for they get the better of me and my apartment is pretty bad.
The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was a bit of a weird step to take.

void ┻━┻︵​╰(ಠ_ಠ ⚠) {exit((int)⚠);}

We can finally determine what androids dream of:
1. Run android in a virtual machine
2. Put it to sleep
3. Suspend the virtual machine to disk
4. grep the image file for 'electric sheep' or whatever you're looking for.
