Looking for the origin of/famous uses of a quote

The quote in question is "I suppose you're wondering why I've called you here today" and its many slight varients. Everyone I've run it by seems to recognize it right off the bat as a line from something, but I've been told everything from The Godfather to Clue as an origin/major use of it, all erroneously, and all attempts to Google have failed because it's such a popularly referenced line.

Can anybody help with something more specific? Thanks.
