What is your favorite line? Take in to account the delivery, if it be a movie or game.

"Khaaaaaaaaan!" not

This one I heard recently, and it made me crack up... but it's not my all-time favorite (need to think more)

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, English dub: "Man should not live by carbohydrates alone, complex or otherwise."

Oooh! Firefly has oodles of good lines.

"You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with until you understand who's in ruttin' command here." - Jayne

"Shepherd, doesn't the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killing people?"
"Very specific. It is, however, rather fuzzy on the subject of kneecaps." - Mal and Shepherd Book

"If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of Hell, a level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater." - Shepherd Book

"Dear diary: Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy... Today we were kidnapped by hill folk, never to be seen again. It was the best day ever." - Jayne reading Simon's diary

"People like a man of god."
"No, they don't. Men of god make people feel guilty and judged." - Book and Mal

The next one is probably my favourite. I guess it needs some background: Strangely enough Jayne had ended up as a revered hero in a town on a backwater planet to the extent that someone took a bullet for him.

"You think there's someone just gonna drop money on you? Money they can use? Well, there ain't people like that! There's just people like me." - Jayne

....actually that was Zoe and Shepherd Book--that was the episode where they were going to rescue Mal.

And yeah, Firefly is packed to the brim with awesome quotes

Another of my favourites is from the end of Journeyman Project 3:

"It's all in the past, Michelle. And we both know you can't change the past."

Okay, it doesn't work as well when taken out of the context, but a couple of pointers: the main character who says that is portrayed as a bit boring by-the-book kinda guy who never jokes, and the whole game revolves around time travel.

Heh. The most ironic part was that a few hours before, he was saving priceless mythical relics from destruction. Not to mention Michelles' antics in the second game...

Who's michelle? I guess they started using characters in the later ones.

I have a number of favorite quotes.


"I find your lack of faith disturbing." (Cruuunch)


(Covenant forces enter the compound, flood spores wafting through the air)

Arbiter: "That stinch. . .I've smelled it before."
Grunt: "Oow, what yummy taste."


"Well done, mighty Protoss! I'm glad to see that you all are as violent as ever." --Kerrigan (Infested)


"How do you get so big, eating food of this kind?" --Yoda


All time favorite:

"Check it out! Independently targeting particle beam phalanx! Fry half a city with this puppy. We got tactical smart missiles, phase plasma pulse rifles, RPGs, we got sonic-electronic BALL breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharpsticks. . ." --Private Hudson

I like this one because of how badly delivered it was:
"I've been from one side of galaxy to the other.  I've seen a lot of strange things.  But I've not seen anything that'd make me believe there's one all-powerful... Force controlling.... everything." —Han Solo

Ah, Han Solo quotes...
"Jedi Knight!  I'm out of it for a little while and everyone gets dillusions of grandeur..."

"Hey!  Point that thing someplace else!"

(Bounty Hunter: I've been looking forward to this for a long time...)
"Yes... I'll bet you have!" *Shoots him*

"Snakes... why did it have to be snakes?"

...now wait a minute...

From the movie "Dark Star". Smiley  Best... Movie.. Ever!!

"Bomb, this is Lt. Dolittle.  You are not to detonate in the bomb bay.  Disarm yourself.  This is an order!"

--Lt. Dolittle talking to Bomb #20.  It's not a smart bomb.  It's a sentient, self-aware bomb.  And it's stuck deep in the throes of Phenomenology when he orders it to disarm.

While watching Empire Strikes Back again
the other night (blast from the past) I
was struck by this quote from Yoda:

"You must unlearn what you have learned."

Really profound, I think. What greater thing
stands in the way of learning a new thing but
old knowledge. People of the past refused to believe
the world is round because they _knew_ it
was flat. People who _know_ gays are evil refuse
to accept the idea that society won't crumble or
be super-naturally destroyed. Some scientists
claim they _know_ nothing travels faster than
light....but of course they're wrong....

Well, most scientists would love to see evidence of something travelling faster than light... but despite all efforts, they have been able to produce such a thing. So, provisionally, they suppose nothing can.

Why do you think they are wrong?

Or are you just saying that taking SC2/SW/ST/B5 as canon?

John Criton: "Yea Yoda, little green guy, trains warriors."

O'NEILL: Jaffa jokes? Let's hear one of them.
TEAL'C: I shall attempt to translate one O'Neill. A serpent guard, a Horus guard and a Setesh guard meet on a neutral planet. It is a tense moment. The serpent guard's eyes glow. The Horus guard's beak glistens. The Setesh guard 's nose drips.

Urgo: He's gonna scoop your brains out with this big scoopy thingy...

CARTER: P4X 884 looks like an untouched paradise, sir.
TEAL'C: Appearances may be deceiving.
O'NEILL: One man's ceiling is another man's floor.
DANIEL: A fool's paradise is a wise man's hell.
O'NEILL: Never run with scissors?
HAMMOND: Were you trying to make a point, Major?

and my favorite quote, though not scifi its related in a round about way

"Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man wanted to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion." -- L. Ron Hubbard
