Also I love whenever he says "Champaggen" (HAHAHA!) and when he's like Leela, are you there? She says no and he's like "Oh yes you are." LOL.

I've never heard of such a shocking injustice that I cared so little about!

That one still has me alternately scratching my head and busting out laughing each time I think about it.

I don't know how much of it is West's delivery and how much is due to the writers having fun with the character but Zapp almost can't say anything that isn't funny. How many straight lines has he had in the whole series, five?

Come to think of it, his pickup lines themselves were not very funny, but the idea that he thought enough of them to write them down was pretty funny.

But sooner or later, you'll come crawling back for another taste of sweet, sweet candy...

A really good one is the love-nasium, and the part about rock crushed paper, etc., and the best Brannigan-ism perhaps of all time is this:
"The key element of war is surprise...SUPRISE!"

Zapp: You're telling me you'd risk the life of a beautiful woman for this moderately attractive monkey?
From the problem with Popplers.
I love that line.

My favorites:

"Fly the white flag of war!"

"The key to victory is the element of surprise. Surprise! [trap door opens, dropping troops]"

"Shut your bonghole you smelly hippie!"

It's been mentioned before, but it's one of my favorite lines: "I'm the man with no name... Zapp Brannigan."

I canít believe nobody has said this 1
I dated a robot
Zapp: Now threes a wave of destruction thatís easy on the eyes
Lucy liu: hi-ya (throws him into the gutters drain)

Zapp: leela are you there

Leela: No

Zapp: Oh yes you are. Iím here by inviting you and your odd ball co-workers to a special reception to display the national silk surplus. I believe you know the heroic space stallion who captured it, show them my medal kiff.

Kiff :(sighs) He rented it with his tax refund.

Zapp: so leela will you have the pleasure?

Leela: what little there is to be had!

Zap: Tomorrow night at eight then smooches. (Kisses the monitor)

If only we could b half as great as he lol

(This one HAS been mentioned, but it's a BIG favorite of mine) "Uh-huh, uh-huh. That's whatever you were talking about for you."


I love those.  Also this scene in Where the Buggalo Roam:

Kif: I'll get your daughter back, sir. I swear.
Mr. Wong: Forget it, squishy. You the one lose her in first place. You done enough.
Mrs. Wong: Yeah. This time we get most decorated law man in the whole universe!
Kif: You mean-- Oh, no, please. I beg you! Oh, for the love of--
[Smash cut to Zapp.]
Zapp: I am the man with no name. Zapp Brannigan, at your service!

[Kif sighs.]


It's that smash cut right before, plus the line itself.  Kills me every time.  big grin

Oh, and for fun:
I found this on Livejournal.

Every line of Zapp's is so carefully crafted and expertly delivered, that word for word, he's the funniest character going.  I'm too lazy to go back and check it, but on one of the dvd commentaries Billy West (I think) said that one of the inspirations for the voice is the top 40 morning Deejays who are so completely in love with the sounds of their own voices that they draw out every word and leave each one overdone and dripping with too much meaning.
"Mmm! That's got a nice feel to it."
