"People say I talk too much."

"Yeah, I was just about to tell you to shut up."
Verbal Kint and Todd Hockney, The Usual Suspects.

A Stock Phrase said from a character who may often border on The Stoic to one who is rather chatty or Motor Mouthed. Typically delivered as a punchline to the end of a long spiel or complaint made by the latter character. Also occasionally used to Shut UP, Hannibal.

A romantic variant has this line followed up by a "Shut Up" Kiss.
