I was going to state it was a "topical" one then decided it wasn't necessary - and it looks like I was correct. Over to you sir.

This may well have been listed previously, and I apologies for following Blade Runner with it, but it tickled my funny bone yesterday when I chanced upon it:

X: Well can't you take a guess?
Y: ...Not for another two hours.
X: You can't take a guess for another two hours?
Y: No what I'm saying is we can't land for another two hours.

I think the last line of The Force Awakens is "may the Force be with you."

Anyway, the film my quote is from is of a different genre.

Not a Western.

I thought this would be guessed straight away. It's a very recent film.

In the scene quoted, B is looking through binoculars when A asks the question.

I though this would be solved straight away.

Further clue: B is looking out to sea in the scene in question.

Thanks Paul, I've not seen the film but the clues helped. It's one of Plummy's favourite films I think :twisted:

Just saw this film the other day on TV, the line is used a number of times in the film and is in the final scene:
