Depends on the context. Either a light hearted expression of annoyance, or a more serious comment meaning "stop talking to me" or "talk to the hand the face ain't listening".

I'd never view it as a death threat.

Suspicious minds expect this thread to have at least one ban as a result :)

It's a very common phrase simply meaning that you are non-existant as far as that person is concerned. It is figurative, not literal or physical.

I marked "other" although I almost chose "An expression for ending all contact w/someone." I think that's usually the case, but had to mark other simply because I have known people to use it as a joke among friends, or quasi-seriously to a friend during a heated moment of passion, to be retracted later.

I'm sure it's not the originally intended use of the phrase, but this is the only context in which I've ever heard "you're dead to me" actually used.

I've heard Patrick use it on Spongebob Squarepants.

I'm sure the person this is really directed at
won't cry himself to sleep at night. Could the
title of this thread be anymore obvious?

If you hear it at the end of a first date, things didn't go well.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Yes, but I'm not about to start listing the more obvious titles that are coming to mind...;-)

LOL!! I heard it in the middle of a date once. I don't think it was quite a first date, but it was early in the relationship. I was joking around about how Jane Austen wrote the same book several times and is revered, while others who have done the same have been openly mocked. Turns out she was a big fan of the Sensible Persuasion of Emma's Prejudices.
