Italian term or phrase: mi fai coda
Sono Macho Man il buttafuori di Club Disco! Non vedi che esiste una coda? Mettiti in fila!

Sono Macho Man il buttafuori di Club Disco! Entra pure ma veloce che mi fai coda!

Thank you all for your help on the last one. Does anyone know if this expression exists ...or can I just translate this more literally??

Thanks!

Explanation:
You can play a little with how gruff/angry the bouncer is, but I'd say something like: "... I've got a line to deal with here!" or "Can't you see there's a line?" or "You're jamming up the line," or "You're backing up my line!" or "You're blocking the line!" or "Don't you see all these people waiting/trying to get in?"
