One of the first to pop up on screen is the fact the word "Rambo" is now officially a word in the dictionary.
Wait, what? Yes, believe it.
Open up a dictionary and (depending on how old your edition is) the word "Rambo" will be listed with a definition that reads:
Ram-bo (ram-boh) - noun. A fanatically militant or violently aggressive person.
God bless America.
I wonder if any other movie characters are in the dictionary. I hope there are, but instead of looking them up, I'll throw a few out that deserve a spot in Webster's with some made up, appropriate definitions. Here we go:

LaRusso (as in Daniel, from The Karate Kid) - To wax on or wax off.
Vader (as in Darth, from Star Wars) - Dark or father.
