    With more than 60,000 phrases across almost 90 movies and TV shows, PlayPhrase.me is a pretty addictive Web app that lets you search for very specific phrases and soundbites that have been uttered on-screen.

    This could be something as simple as ‘Come to me’ or ‘Howdy’, to the more mirthsome ‘Ass Monkey’.

    The matching results highlight your search term in real-time, as each video snippet is displayed with the audio utterance playing simultaneously.

    In many ways, it’s all rather pointless – but it is a fun tool for whiling away 20 minutes seeing what words feature most frequently.
