    Cool Quote Anything from a TV Show

    Whatever wacky or interesting phrases, lines, snatches of song, etc., come to your mind. I'll start:


    "Cliff Hanger, hanging from a cliff! And that's why he's called Cliff Hanger! (Can't. hold. on. much. longer.)"

    Lister: Can I get a bacon sandwich with french mustard and black coffee?

    Lister: Your vocabulary unit's not working either?
    Vending Machine: Yes, I know
    Lister: Can you just try to get me a black coffee?
    VM: I'll certainly try.
    (a bucket comes out)
    Lister: That's a bucket.

    Rimmer: Bp bp bp bp! Good morning Lister! How's life in hippy heaven, you pregnant baboon-bellied spaceman? Bp bp bp bp bp.
    Lister: Good morning Rimmer.

    That's pretty much what I can remember off the top of my head.

    My favorite quote. It's so amazing, and an amazing episode:

    "It begins where it ends, in nothingness. A nightmare born from deepest fears, coming home unguarded. Whispering images from time and distance. A soul unbound, touched by others, but never held, on a course chartered by some unseen hand, the journey ahead promising no more than the past reflected back upon me, until at last I reach the end, facing a truth I can no longer deny. Alone, as ever." - Dana Scully

    Here's another one from The X-Files:

    We work in the dark. We do what we can to battle the evil that would otherwise destroy us, but if a man's character is not his fate, this fight is not a choice but a calling. A perilous journey we can neither question nor refuse. Yet, sometimes the weight of this burden causes us to falter, breaching the fragile fortress of our mind, allowing the monsters without to turn within, and we are left alone staring into the abyss, into the laughing face of madness. - Fox Mulder

    Yes, the show had so many amazing quotes. Another favorite of mine:

    "They said the birds refused to sing and the thermostat fell suddenly. As if God himself had his breath stolen away. No one there dared speak aloud, as much in shame as in sorrow. They uncovered the bodies one by one. The eyes of the dead were closed, as if waiting for permission to open them. Were they still dreaming of ice cream and monkey bars? Of birthday cake and no future but the afternoon? Or had their innocence been taken along with their lives, buried in the cold earth so long ago? These fates seemed too cruel even for God to allow. Or are the tragic young born again when the world's not looking? I want to believe so badly, in a truth beyond our own, hidden and obscured from all but the most sensitive eyes. In the endless procession of souls, in what cannot and will not be destroyed. I want to believe we are unaware of God's eternal recompense and sadness. That we cannot see his truth. That that which is born still lives and cannot be buried in the cold earth, but only waits to be born again at God's behest. Where in ancient starlight we lay in repose."

    Men can never be free because they are weak, corrupt, worthless, and restless. The people believe in authority. They've grown tired of waiting for miracle and mystery. Science is their religion. No greater explanation exists for them. - Cigarette Smoking Man

    We bury our dead alive, don't we? We hear them every day. They talk to us. They haunt us. They beg us for meaning. Conscience, it's just the voices of the dead trying to save us from our own damnation.

    Well, as Zulu says, there are so many amazing quotes from the show. But if you desire something different, anyname...

    Through the dark of futures past, the magician longs to see. One chants between two worlds. Fire walk with me.

    Here's a long one:

    The name is from the French, Gargouille - the name of a medieval dragon which prowled the river Seine whose horrible image became the symbol of the souls of the condemned turned to stone or of the devils and demons of the underworld spared eternal damnation. The embodiment of the lesser forces of the universe who inspired dread and the threat of our own damnation. Ushers into Hell or into the realm of our own dark fears and imagination. For over 1,200 years the grotesque image has found its expression in stone, clay, wood, oil, and charcoal; born again and again as if resurrecting itself by its own will through tortured human expression, almost as if it existed, haunting men inwardly so that it might haunt mankind for eternity as it must have haunted John Mostow. But what impulses moved him to kill? Could this be the same dark force at work? Its ultimate expression the destruction of the flesh of the very hand that creates it? Is this evil something born in each of us, crouching in the shadow of every human soul waiting to emerge? A monster that violates our bodies and twists our will to do its bidding? Is this the monster called madness?

    -Mulder

    From the sci-fi thriller, Split Second.

    Police Chief "Do you know what this is? It's a medical report on you. The Doctors say you have anxiety neurosis to the point of being paranoid."

    Detective Harley Stone "Doctors don't know shit."

    Chief "How many weapons you carrying besides this cannon?"

    Stone "An MP-15."

    Chief "What else?"

    Stone "A Glock 50."

    Chief "And?"

    Stone "An A-3 Assault Shotgun."

    Chief "If that's not paranoid, I don't know what the fuck is. I'm surprised you don't have a grenade launcher."

    Stone "I couldn't get a permit."


    ***

    Detective Dick Durkin "I don't think this thing thinks it's Satan, I think it is Satan"

    Stone "Yeah," loads and chambers his weapon "Well Satan, is in deep shit!"

    ***

    Durkin watches Stone pull a power cable off of a wall and charge back into the room with it.

    Durking "What are you going to do with that?'

    Stone "I'm gonna fry the fucker!"

    ***

    There are more, but I won't put them here yet. Suffice to say Split Second is one of my favs. Rutger Hauer is one of my favorite actors.

    This is great and all but the title of the thread is Quote anything from a TV Show, and Split Second is a film.

    Ok, I misread the thread title. My bad.

    How's these... (taken from Star Trek Voyager Episode 'In the Flesh')

    "Donít get sassy with me, young lady! This re-creation may be Starfleet but our weapons are far more sophisticated. I can destroy your vessel with a single command. Run along, now."

    - Boothby

    " Targ manure! 'United Federation of Planets'...'tolerance for all species'...the 'Prime Directive'...targ manure, every word of it!"

    - Boothby

    "Humans! You've got a flair for the dramatic, I'll give you that. You want to keep talking? Fine by me. But no more beating around the bush! Now what do you want from us? The truth, Captain!"

    - Boothby, to Captain Janeway

    "First of all, I want to take a look at that nanoprobe technology - it scares the hell out of me!""

    - 'Boothby' Replicant to Janeway, laying some 'ground rules'.

    Taken from Star Trek The Next Generation 'All Good Things...'

    "The Continuum didn't think you had it in you, Jean-Luc, but I knew you did."
    "Are you saying that it worked? We collapsed the anomaly?"
    "Is that all this meant to you? Just another spatial anomaly? Just another day at the office?"
    "Did it work?"
    "Well, you're here, aren't you? You're talking to me, aren't you?"
    "What about my crew?"
    ""The anomaly...my ship...my crew..." I suppose you're worried about your fish, too. Well, if it puts your mind at ease, you've saved humanity...once again."
    "Thank you."
    "For what?"
    "You had a hand in helping me get out of this."
    "I was the one who got you into it--a directive from the Continuum. The part about the helping hand, though...was my idea."
    "I sincerely hope that this is the last time that I find myself here."
    "You just don't get it, do you, Jean-Luc? The trial never ends. We wanted to see if you had the ability to expand your mind and your horizons. And for one brief moment, you did."
    "When I realized the paradox."
    "Exactly. For that one fraction of a second, you were open to options you had never considered. That is the exploration that awaits you. Not mapping stars and studying nebulae, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence."
    "Q, what is it that you're trying to tell me?"
    "You'll find out. In any case, I'll be watching. And if you're very lucky, I'll drop by to say hello from time to time. See you...out there."

    - Q and Picard, their last conversation

    Sean: 600 bucks to fix a broken cat's leg.
    Eddie: What a rip. For 600 bucks I could get you a black market eagle.

    Another Xena quote:

    Aeris: "Who's the father?"

    Xena: "Gabrielle."

    I giggled a lot the first time I saw that episode.
