Default Favorite Beatle mentions in movies

One thing I'm always finding in movies is mentions of the Beatles in movies the beatles themselves are not in. One of my favorites is from Michael when John Travolta's character says
"Remember what John and Paul said"
Andie MacDowell: " The Saints?"
John: " No the Beatles... All you need is love"

Well anyway I was wondering what other mentions you all could come up with cause I know there are tons.

There certainly are tons, you're not wrong about that. There are entire websites out there dedicated to just this topic, of Beatle references in movies. One of the better ones can be found here:

One of many movies that springs to mind is Mr Holland's Opus, which has a stack of John Lennon references - Richard Dreyfuss (main actor) even signs 'Beautiful Boy' for his son towards the end.

Here's one of my favorites: Sister Act
When asked to name the Disciples, Whoopi Goldberg says,"John, Paul, George and Ringo!"

Kat, that's another great one! I wanted to ask, more so for UK people... does anyone watch Heartbeat on TV there? We get it down here and it's pretty popular, I don't watch it myself but whilst channel surfing I landed on that a number of times and was amazed at the amount of Beatles songs they played when a tune was required... almost every time!
