Post your favorite quotes here. Here's one from Angel...


"How can I thank you, you mysterious black-clad hunk of a night thing?
"No need, little lady, your tears of gratitude are enough for me. You see, I was once a badass vampire, but love and a pesky curse defanged me. Now I'm just a big, fluffy puppy with bad teeth. No, not the hair! Never the hair!"
"But there must be some way I can show my appreciation?"
"No, helping those in need's my job, and working up a load of sexual tension and prancing away like a magnificent poof is truly thanks enough."
"I understand. I have a nephew who is gay, so..."
"Say no more. Evil's still afoot. And I'm almost out of that nancy-boy hair-gel I like so much. Quickly, to the Angel-mobile, away."

iFil!

He who disagrees with me in private, call him a fool. He who disagrees with me in public, call him an ambulance.

What do you get the man who has everything? Might I suggest a gravesone enscribed with the words: so what?

People rarely listen to what I say. I do not expect them to. One cannot expect dwarves to queue for the rack.

What should one say after making love? Thank you seems too much. I'm sorry - not enough.

I remember when I posed as a customs officer so that I could meet Oscar Wilde. I said to him "Have you anything to declare?" He said "I have nothing to declare but my genius." I said "I'll put that down as nothing then shall I?" For I am the wittiest man on Earth.
 
It is the vanity of women to spend hours in front of the mirror. It is the vanity of men not to bother.

The electric guitar - like making love - is much improved by a little feedback, completely ruined by too much.

He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword. Indeed - likewise he who lives by the pen, he who lives by the word processor, he who who lives by the fax machine all shall die by the sword. Only he who lives by the tank shall remain immune.

Horses sweat. Gentlemen perspire. Women sweat and perspire - and shit and piss and menstruate, but you wouln never guess that to look at them. With their faces.

If a million monkies were given a million typewriters, eventually one of them might produce the complete works of Shakespeare but to reach it would it be worth wading through four hundred copies of "Money" by Martin Amis?

Like many supermodels, I won't get out of bed for less than 3000. Unlike many supermodels, I don't get out of bed very often.

A million monkeys were given a million typewriters. It's called the internet.

heres a long one from blackadder:
melchett:' now, george, do you remember when I came down to visit you for your 6th birthday - you had a rabbit, beautiful litle thing, do you remember?'
george: 'flossy.'
M: 'that's right, and do you remember what happened to Flossy?'
G: 'You shot him.'
M: 'Thats right. it was the kindest thing to do, after all, he had been run over by that car.'
G: ' By your car, sir.'
M: Yes, by my car, yes, but that too was an act of mercy after you remember that dog had been set on him.'
G: ' Your dog, sir.'
M: 'Yes, yes my dog, but what I'm trying to say George, is the state your Flossy was in after he'd been scraped off my front tyre is very much the state young Blackadder will be in now, if not very nearly dead, then very actually dead.'
G: 'permission for lip to wobble, sir'
M: 'Permission granted. stout fellow.'
G: 'surely, sir, you must at least let me try to save him.'
M: ' No, George, as pointless as trying to teach a woman the importance of a good forward defensive stroke. Besides, It would take some kind of superman to  get him out of there- not the sort of weed who blubs just because he is given a piece of rabbit pie instead of birthday cake.'

Blackadder is great  big grin

From Dirty Harry:
Uh,Uh punk I know what you're thinking,
Did he fire six shots or only five?
To tell you the truth I've kinda lost track myself in all this excitement,
But seeing as this is the 44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and it could blow your head clean off.
You've got to ask yourself a question,
Do you feel lucky?
Well do you? Punk

I hope I got that right it has been a while since I saw it last   frown

From the Princess Bride book, Buttercup redas the first draft of her love letter
"Westley, my passion, my sweet, my only, my own. Come back, come back. I shall kill myself otherwise. Yours in torment, Buttercup. Well? Do you think I'm throwing myself at him?"

Sundance: Don't worry Butch, you'll think of something.

Criticism, eh? No no no no no. It's not the critic that counts, but the artist, who struggles and strives to get his or her vision out there in the public domain against all odds, against contraints financial, creative and intellectual, who mans the pumps, who rallies the troops, who mucks in to create... something!

But what do the pundits do, other than to slag them off for their efforts- critics who write, produce and create nothing , but bitch and deride others for having the audacity to try and tell a story and create something that might live on in the public domain- it's gone TOO FAR!

It's time to redress the balance in favour of the artist-creator-producer-acheiver and their need to express their vision agains all odds, especially against moribund, impotant, criticism, which is DEAD!

But wait, these artists don't live in a vacuum do they? And if they've got the arrogance to believe that they can educate, communicate, provoke and inform, well, they ought to be able to take some shit, because if I've got to sit through another ninety minutes of gack, well, I'll jolly well eat my own arse, clean off its hinges.

They don't want this Marklar or any of these Marklars to live here, because it's bad for their Marklar! They use Marklar to try and force Marklars to believe their Marklar! If you let them stay here, they will build Marklars and Marklars! They will take all your Marklars and replace them with Marklar! These Marklars have no good Marklar to live on Marklar, so they must come here to Marklar!

You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna get myself a 1967 Cadillac El Dorado convertible, hot pink with whaleskin hub caps and all leather cow interior and big brown baby seal eyes for headlights, yeah! And I'm gonna drive around in that baby at 115mph getting one mile per gallon, sucking down quarter pounder cheese burgers from McDonald's in the old-fashioned non-biodegradable Styrofoam containers and when I'm done sucking down those grease ball burgers, I'm gonna wipe my mouth with the American flag and then I'm gonna toss the Styrofoam container right out the side and there ain't a God damned thing anybody can do about it. You know why? Because we got the bombs, that's why.

And as soon as we find the cure for cancer we're gonna thaw out the duke and he's gonna be pretty pissed off. You know why? Have you ever taken a cold shower?

Garak--In the Pale Moonlight: "That's why you came to see me--isn't it Captain? because you knew i could do those things you weren't capable of doing. Well, it worked. And you'll get what you want--a war between the Romulans and The Dominion. And if your conscience is bothering you, you should soothe it with the knowledge that you mat have just saved the entire Alpha Quardrant, and all it cost was the life of one Romulan senator, one criminal, and the self-respect of one Starfleet officer. I don't know about you, but i'd call that a bargain."

From Star Trek: Deep Space 9. It may not sound as impressing on paper, but the scene it's taken from is one of Trek's finest moments.

Al Bundy: "Have I ever told you about the time I scored 4 touchdowns in a single match?"

Dark Helmet: "Light speed is too slow."
Colonel Sanders: "Light speed's too slow?"

Colonel Sanders: (gasp) Ludicrous speed. But Sir we've never gone that fast before, I don't know if the ship can take it."
Dark Helmet: "What's the matter, Colonel Sanders? CHICKENNN???"
Colonel Sanders: "(in a highpitched voice) Prepare ship.. (in normal voice) Prepare ship for ludicrous speed: fasten all seatbelts, seal all entrances and exits, close all shops in the mall, cancel the three-ring-circus, secure all animals in the zoo..."
Dark Helmet: "Give me that you petty excuse for an officer. (Sanders goes to strap himself in) Now hear this, ludicrous speed.."
Colonel Sanders: "Sir you've better buckle up"
Dark Helmet: "Ah, buckle this! LUDICROUS SPEED. GO!!!"
