Poll: Iconic Quotes... on a First-Name Basis!

It's not unusual for movie dialogues involving family members, friends, old acquaintances or romantic couples to have a first name inserted in it, as if it had or added an effect of its own, like emphasizing the intimacy between the two characters, their complicity or whatever bond one of them wishes to create (not always with the best intentions).
