When you copy and cut stuff, it gets saved to registers. You can pull stuff from those registers at a later time.

:reg - show named registers and what's in them
"5p - paste what's in register "5
You can also record a whole series of edits to a register, and then apply them over and over.

qk - records edits into register k
(q again to stop recording)
@k - execute recorded edits (macro)
@@ - repeat last one
5@@ - repeat 5 times

"kp - print macro k
(e.g., to edit or add to .vimrc)
"kd - replace register k with what cursor is on
