Thirty-five years ago, on Feb. 8, 1976, cinematic history was made with the release of Martin Scorsese's 'Taxi Driver.' The story of Travis Bickle and the images of a gritty, uncompromising New York City are ingrained in the collective consciousness of pop culture. And after winning awards, reaping massive financial success and launching the careers of everyone involved into the stratosphere, one achievement of 'Taxi Driver' stands head and shoulders above everything else: the nonstop parodying of the "You talkin' to me?" speech.

If you could boil down the entire three-decade legacy of one of the greatest movies of all time, it would be Robert De Niro's slightly crazed confrontation with his own reflection. It has appeared in some weird corners of entertainment ascending into some kind of cornball nirvana. Featuring a collection of puppets, pro wrestlers and plenty of Rick Moranis, check out our mashup of the oddest "You talkin' to me" speeches.
