"Went" is a phrase...?

It's called vernacular or common parlance.

Just like "add to the list."

And I think I have used "straight to hell" a grand total of about five times in
200+ produced scripts. Much the same can be said of the other examples. I'm
not sure that fits the description of "stock" lines.

>How about "With all due respect..." ?

In the military, and in politics, people use that phrase when they want to
disagree with a superior officer or person of high rank. That's what one
*says*. That's protocol.

That's the result when hell is the only profanity you can use in broadcast
television.

There are any number of far more colorful turms I'd much rather have used.
