Oh, so we're doing 'real-people quotes' now, are we? Mwahaha. You shouldn't have got me started on this. I'm the queen of annoying un-funny inside jokish quotes said by me, my friends, my family, my aquaintances, my enemies, and random other people in my life! Fear them! FEAR THEM!!!! AHHHHHHHHAHAHAHA!!! Now here's a warning. These may seem strange. These may seem downright mad. Or they may seem totally irrelevent. Whatever. Let's all share quotes from our personal lives. :rolleyes: :D

"You can't shimmy down Isengard!" -Me

"That's it! I'm never making clothes for an elf again!" -Me

Me: Yeah?
Kristina: Do snakes have eyes?!?!
Abdul: SHUT UP!

Carissa: You guys, where's Canada?
Me: I think it's south...

Me: Could be east, actually...
Tessa: Wait, what are we talking about?
Me: Canada?
Tessa: What?
Carissa: What is Canada?
Shayna: Our home and native land, duh.

Me: Carissa, you HAVE to see this movie! I swear! It's good!

Me: Are you not entertained? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

Me: I want to learn German so I can yell at people. It's really a harsh sort of language, ya know.
Charlotte: Hey! Are you making fun of German people?! Excuse me?! Do NOT make fun of German people, ok?! I'm part German, seriously. And I don't appreciate that. Just because you don't like the language doesn't mean you have to insult Germans!
Me: Uh, Charlotte, I'm part German too, you know...
Carissa: And part English, French, Native American, Scottish, and Dutch, right?
Me: Correct.
Charlotte: Have you ever noticed how silly Dutch people are?

Chelsea: Well I wanted it!
Tessa: You scared him! He went to talk to the manager, and we had to run away! Fast!
Chelsea: So?
Tessa: You almost got us banished from Tim Horton's!

Troy: Seriously.
Nakia: Is Mat there? Can I talk to him?
Me: Nakia was looking for Chretien at Parliament yesterday, she wanted to confess her undying love to him.
Nakia: Hehe.
Troy: Mat doesn't want to talk.
Nakia: Mat, talk to me, please!
Justin S.: Mat, blah blah blah...
Justin B.: Mat is a fat cat.
*Everyone goes into a fit of laughter*

*In Ottawa on the bus*
Jordon: Um, Mat doesn't look so good.
Mat: I don't feel well.
Nakia: Whatever, come here, I wanna talk to you!
Mat: Ok. *pukes all over the aisle*
Nakia: Ew, go away!

Me: (to people standing in the line-up for this pizza place in the mall, giving us weird looks) Have you ever seen a portal?
People: ...
Carissa: 28 days... 5 hours... 36 minutes... eight seconds...
Me: Donnie Darko is my number one guy.
Carissa: I don't want to be alone... When the world ends...

that)

Then there's been all the misunderstandings while on field trips in the States...

Me: I can't tell the bills apart! How do I know if I've got a one dollar bill or a ten dollar bill?!
Carissa: I guess you could look at the numbers.
Me: Yeah, but that'd take effort. Things are so easy in Canada.
Carissa: Yeah, Canada is like the country for Dummies. Country for Idiots. Like one of those books, you know.
Me: You just dissed every single Canadian, including yourself.
Carissa: Sad but true, yes.

Lady: Right! The stars!

*At the Cleveland zoo*
Mat: We're going to see the monKAYS!
Everyone: Yeah! Monkays!
Random American Girl: Umm, hello? It's pronounced 'monkey'.
Mat: Yeah well in Canada we say 'monkay'.
Random American Girl: Seriously?
Me: Yeah, and most of us live in igloos, the rumours are all true.
Random American Girl: *to friend* See!

Me: I have but one piece of advice for you.
Nakia: Ok, what is it?
Me: NEVER follow my advice.

And I'll end there. I'm sorry. I think my pain medication is messing me up.
:rolleyes: :confused: :p

Here are some of my favorite non-Python quotes...

"There's no right! There's no wrong! There's only popular opinion"- 12 Monkeys

(After being told of all the jobs a teacher had, which is supposed to be impressive)
Friend: All that tells me is that he can't hold down a job.

"Yeah, Gandalf! Beware a troll!"- Conan O'Brien (in a very nerdy voice) during his monolouge whenever Lord of the Rings is mentioned

"No, Frodo! ...I'll see you in the pits of MORDOR!"- ditto

Which reminds me: "Ditto"? "Ditto," you provincial putz?!"-Blazing Saddles

"I cut my finger. That's tragedy. A man walks into an open sewer and dies. That's comedy." - Mel Brooks

I can probably think of a few more later...whether I'll post them or not? We'll see...muah ha ha ha ha!

Just a few random quotes from a big file of mine--

"When it comes to testing new aircraft or determining maximum performance, pilots like to talk about 'pushing the envelope.' They're talking about a two-dimensional model: the bottom is zero altitude, the ground; the left is zero speed; the top is max altitude; and the right, maximum velocity, of course. So, the pilots are pushing that upper-right-hand corner of the envelope. What everybody tries not to dwell on is that that's where the postage gets cancelled, too." ~The Collected Journals of Admiral Rick Hunter

"You want us to build WHAT?" ~Ancient Chinese Wall-Engineer

Constance: "David doesn't believe in violence."
Kurdy: "Oh yeah? Well, what about when violence believes in him?"
Constance: "He prays. A lot."

"There is no past. They're just shadows we call memories. There's no future either ... the occasional glimmer of hope. All we really have a shot at holding on to is right here, right now." ~Jeremiah

"You see, I got a real simple philosophy. If it ain't nailed down, it's mine and if I can pry it up, it ain't nailed down." ~Theo

"It's all so brief, isn't it? Typical human lifespan is almost a hundred years, but it's barely a second compared to what's out there. It wouldn't be so bad if life didn't take so long to figure out. Seems you just start to get it right and then .. it's over."
"Doesn't matter. If we lived two hundred years, we'd still be human. We'd still make the same mistakes."
"You're a pessimist."
"I am Russian, Doctor. We understand these things."
~ Dr. Stephen Franklin Lt. Commander Susan Ivanova

"No. We have to stay here and there's a simple reason why. Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics and you'll get ten different answers, but there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on. Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe and Lao-Tzu, Einstein, Morobuto, Buddy Holly, Aristophanes .. and all of this .. all of this was for nothing unless we go to the stars." ~Jeffrey Sinclair

"Here, 6000 years of recorded history, a history that includes remarkable composers, astonishing symphonies, but what is the one song that half of them sing to their children generation after generation?

'You put your right hand in
You put your right hand out
You put your whole self in
And you turn yourself about
You do the hokey pokey
You give a little shout
That's what it's all about'

It doesn't mean anything. I have been studying it for seven days, I had the computer analyze it. I swear to you it does not mean a thing!" ~Londo Mollari

Let the quotes begin:

Randal Graves: Do you think Phantom Menace is as good of a movie as Empire?

George Lucas: Well, certainly, I think it's the best movie I've made yet.

Randal Graves: Permission to treat this witness as hostile. Mr.

Lucas, how do you explain that in Star Wars Obi-Wan tells Luke when he met his father he was a great pilot, but in Menace he's just a little boy?

George Lucas: Well, my kids thought...

Randal Graves: And how come Obi-Wan tells Luke that Yoda is the Jedi that trains him, but in the movie Liam Neeson trains him?

George Lucas: Um, well, the power of myth...

Randal Graves: Isn't it true you knew this was a bad movie, that you wrote it over a weekend but told people you had it written for years?

Lawyer: Objection! The pod race was pretty cool.

Big Mac: Hello good people of Leonardo. I, like the mayor, was on my way to a costume, but incidentally, not the same costume party. I am able to remove my costume but I have decided to wear it as protection against the deadly virus. Are there any questions?
Tovah Hernandaz-Carlson: Who are you supposed to be?
Big Mac: I'm Big Mac. Beloved constable and best friend to Ronald McDonald. Now are there any questions about the virus?
Steve-Dave: Will this administration ever bring the Hamburglar to justice?
Big Mac: No... Yes. Look, does anybody have any questions about the virus that could kill us all?
Reporter: Can the virus kill the Grimace?
Big Mac: Nothing can kill the Grimace. All right, we're done here.

Jay: Me and Silent Bob would just like to announce that we will officially be hanging out in front of these stores again...officially.
[Silent Bob whispers something is Jay's ear.]
Jay: Oh yeah. Snooch to the noonch!

Dante Hicks: What? Kill a monkey? Are you mad?
Randal Graves: Man! Didn't you see Outbreak? One monkey almost wiped out an entire town and Kevin Spacey with the deadly Motaba Virus.
Dante Hicks: That was a movie. This is real life.
Randal Graves: We said the same thing about Jaws when we were kids.
Dante Hicks: Because you refused to sit on the toilet!
Randal Graves: Sharks swim in water. There's water in the toilet. I rest my case.
Dante Hicks: Sharks only swim in salt water.
Randal Graves: I have salt water in my toilet.
Dante Hicks: You're so naive!

LOL, Martin - I loved that quote of Londo's. <g>

Not that these are the greatest quotes of all time, but here's a few random non-music ones I've come across.

"Mortal as I am, I know that I am born for a day. But when I follow at my pleasure the serried multitude of the stars in their circular course, my feet no longer touch the earth." ~Ptolemy~

"Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another." ~Plato, The Republic~

"We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak." ~Epictetus~

"As empty vessels make the loudest sound, so they that have least wit are the greatest babblers." ~Plato~

"A chair is a very difficult object. A skys????er is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous." ~Mies van der Rohe~

"A room without books is like a body without a soul." ~Cicero~


Some Mark Twain:

"'Classic.' A book which people praise and don't read."

"Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education."

"Simple rules for saving money: To save half, when you are fired by an eager impulse to contribute to a charity, wait, and count forty. To save three-quarters, count sixty. To save it all, count sixty-five."


Isaac Asimov:

"I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them."

"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'"

"Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do."


Doug Adams... I got to read his books sometime... <g>

"I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by."

"I've been ordered to take you down to the bridge. Here I am, brain the size of a planet and they ask me to take you down to the bridge. Call that job satisfaction? 'Cos I don't." ~Marvin~

And a few from the TV show Red Dwarf:

"Time is a great healer. Unless it's a rash, in which case you're better off with ointment. " ~Holly~

"The entire panel's deader than A-Line flares with pockets in the knees! " ~Cat~

"I have a mind to fill your boots with runny porridge again. That'll teach you a lesson about maturity. " ~Lister~

Rimmer: We can't afford to take any chances. Jump up to red alert.
Kryten: Are you sure, sir? It does mean changing the bulb.

"Our biggest enemy is going space crazy through loneliness. The only thing that helps me maintain my slender grip on reality is the friendship I share with my collection of singing potatoes." ~Holly~

And of course, it wouldn't be a real Treesian post if there wasn't one music quote in it. <g>

Holly: I've had a really busy morning. I've devised a system to totally revolutionize music.
Lister: Get out of town!
Holly: Yeah, I've decimalized it. Instead of the octave, it's the decatave. And I've invented two new notes: H and J.
Lister: Hang on a minute, you can't just invent new notes.
Holly: Well I have. Now it goes [singing] Do re mi fa sol la wo bo ti do. Do ti bo wo la sol fa mi re do.
Rimmer: What are you drivelling about?
Holly: Holrock. It'll be a whole new sound. All the instruments will be extra big to incorporate my two new notes. Triangles will have four sides. Piano keyboards the length of zebra crossings...

I have one quote. It's not exactly what was said, but it's close enough.

[Randal Defending Dante from All-Black NBA Jury]
Randal: Dante likes grape soda as well. He knows what it feels like when the cashier doesn't accept your "food stamps". He waits every month for his "welfare check". Heeeeeeeeeey, hoooooooo. Heeeeeeeeeeeey, hooooooooooo.

That's all I have for today.

Sorry, I've got to save them for use in my bi-weekly changing signature. ;) Ah, what the heck, I'll throw in a few.

"Welcome to Homestarrunner.net!" "It's 'dot-com'." "Oh, right. Homestarrunner.net! It's dot-com!" - Homestar Runner
"Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!" - Monty Python's Flying Circus
"Your people were so obsessed with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think whether or not they should." - Jurassic Park
"If you want to get your hand out of the jar, you'll have to let go of the candy corn." "But candy corn RULES!" - Sluggy Freelance
"I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought. But I do know with what weapons World War IV will be fought: with clubs and rocks." - Albert Einstein
"Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. I have not much hope that Gollum can be cured before he dies, but there is a chance of it. And he is bound up with the fate of the Ring. My heart tells me that he has some part to play yet, for good or ill, before the end; and when that comes, the pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many - yours not least." - The Lord of the Rings

Art teacher: Oh, are you two argueing over that again?
Me: They've been going on like this for a while. Run while you still can.

*while listening to an Arrogant Worms song*
My cousin: These guys are freakin' geniouses.
Me:Who knew you could have that much to say about hockey. Er, er, me like hockey!

Yay, The Arrogant Worms! They rock!! How does that song go again...?

Me work hard five days a week
Sweeping garbage from the street
Come home not one book to read
Not 'nuff pictures for me see
Sit right done in favourite chair
Wearing on underwear
Favourite night is Saturday night
'Cause me can watch hockey fights!
Me like hockey!

Hehe, that was all from memory, so sorry if it's isn't accurate. I also love 'Canada is Really Big'

When I look around me
I can't believe what I see
It seems as if this country has lost its will to live!
The economy is lousy
We barely have an army
But we can still stand proudly 'cause Canada's really big!
We're the second
Largest country
On this planet earth!
And if Russia
Keeps on shrinking
Then soon we'll be first (as long as we keep Quebec)!

So many good songs... I couldn't list 'em all here, it'd take all day. But The Arrogant Worms *are* geniuses! :D

That reminds me of this thing my uncle said...

"I have a theory. The only reason everyone dies is that they *think* all the time that they're going to die. So they do. Once they get old enough, they think 'well, I'm going to die now', and they do. Or if they get seriously injured, they always think 'guess I'm gonna die' and they do. Me? I'm just going to think 'I'm not going to die'. So I never will. Great, eh?"

I know a friend had a lovely rant about how he felt like he was gonna die cause he jammed his finger in something, but I can't post it here due to language. Eep.
Todays (lame) quote comes once again from school. The power went out right after the lunch bell, and when we went to class, it was still out. It went something like this:
Matt: We know why the power went out!
Me: That dratted ozone layer* over the school again?
Matt: Nope. Julie said she wanted the power to go out, and it flickered, right? Then she said that she wanted it to go out for good, and the moment she said it, the lights went off.
Me: That's...scary.
Lacey: Very scary. Hey, that rhymed!

You're a good judge of that, are you? ;)

A far simpler way to answer that is: Is the quote gone? Yes. Who has the power to remove the quote? Martin or the Scribes. Ergo, if the quote is gone, they had to have removed it. If they removed it, then it was deemed inappropriate. Therefore, one can logically assume that, yes, the quote was inappropriate for this board.

The quote was a play on words with two definitive interpretations. One was harmless. The other, however, makes use of an expression which, regardless of its acceptance elsewhere, I'd rather not have crop up on this board. That's why your quote and others making similar usage of the expression were removed. This is intended to be an all-ages board.

I'm sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but some of these quotes are funny and I thought I'd add some.

NOTE: Jofes = Me (Nickname)
Joel = My bro

Also, all these quotes come from chatrooms we go on.

Tay: Are you Lissa?
Lissa: No, I'm just a chicken.

Wilson: Our cat set his tail on fire. Twice.
Jon: Poor kitty. Or dumb kitty.
Em: That’s interesting, Wilson. Did its tail get shorter?

Tim Cook: Chipmunks roasting on an open fire...

Wilson: Hey Howie, do you know anything about plumbing? I don't.
Tim Cook: (not really, but don't tell THEM that)
Wilson: Oh well, most real plumbers don't either
Sarah: You just kinda plumb.

Ali: Tim must feel awfully special!
Tim: Yeah -- special like a guy struck dead by God in his last two seconds.

Katt: I bite a lot.

Julia: Liz, don't die!!! THE PURPLE SPACE MONKEYS NEED YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joel: Andy's cool. He likes to burn dead mice too!
Chase: Cool, they burn?

Hannah: Oh, guess what? I'm only sitting next to one rude guy in jazz band now!

Carl: Where did the bloody couch come from? You were supposed to fall down the cliff 147 feet to a death on the concrete below...

Wilson: I may be a hick, but I'm an ARMED hick.

Dr. McMenomy: And I'll be sending out the exam sometime this week.
Tim Cook: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
DrMcM: Clearly Tim expects to get an A on his exam.
{Given to me by Liz}

Katt: This e-mail is for Tay only. If you are not Tay click here. If you are, click there. If nothing happened when you clicked on either of these, good, it shouldn't have.

Tim: Oh, auta miqula orqu.
Tay: What does that mean?
Tim: "Go kiss an orc".

Ali: I'd be more than glad to take a poll. How many days do you want me to spend asking who's more popular?

*Tay crumples to the floor dramatically, and lies there quietly*
Carl: Well if it was loudly I certainly would be freaked out.

Anna: WE NEED FROGS (BOYS).
JohnJ: You'll never catch THIS frog.

Ben: “Stuff”

Tim: SINCE Carlotta has consumed the one (1) cheese stick, Dulcinea will be consuming the one (1) piece of toast, and I will not be CONSUMING anything. This utterly pointless NOTAM has been issued 12/11/2002, and is already outdated. We hope you realize how stupid we are.

Tim Cook: Wal, it sounds like you have an advanced case of math irritation...

Tim: I think one of us needs Cheese sticks anonymous.

Tim Cook: *reads* Due to the war, all restaurants in Minas Tirith are closed. That’s why we gave you the coupons.
Wilson: Rats. We were ripped off. I wanted a date.
Hannah: A date with who?
Wilson: Unfortunately they were all spoken for. I brought a mop.

Katt: ok, ok, I know, but when you are procrastinating you've got to do something!

Sadie: I'd love to be a damsel in distress for just one day... and have a knight to come and rescue me...

Maureen: Am I intruding upon something?

* Megan chokes on a swedish meatball and dies*
April: Awww, the poor meatball!
Megan: 's ok, April. Its in meatball heaven.
April: Are you sure?
Katt: Up in the big spaghetti plate up in the sky...all covered with cheese.
April: With his meatloaf granddaddy?
Katt: Yes, Ap.
*April calms down a little: ok*
* Megan eats some ham and chokes again*
Katt: The poor pig!

Tay: If you did flirt, that would be interesting. *wonders who on earth you'd flirt with anyway*
Jon: Well, *looks at list* Pick someone I'm supposed to like, and...no, never mind. No demonstrations.

Em: When in doubt, add a Matt.

Tim: *wonders where his brain is*
Jon: I hope it wasn't the thing I threw in the trash last night. Well, generally stuff in the dirty oatmeal pot can be thrown away. I thought there was a lot of it....

Katt: Boy, when I get confirmed, I'm gonna have a huge name. Katheryn Marie Thomas Anne Terese Atkinson. Try yelling that up the stairs!

Tim: Here's a tomato, Dan, it's called Bob. Keep it away from tomato paste, it upsets him terribly.

Jon: I like Star Wars (totally random comment)

Tim: Thop.

Tim Cook: If you swallow a whole bottle of sleeping pills could that kill you?

* Ben hugs his kitty. His name is "kitty"*
Katt: Wow, Ben. So creative. I never would have thought of that...

Tay: You flirt too, 'fraid to say. Chase: I know. Its so dang fun!

Katt: I wonder how many guy's e-mails I got just by doing that.

Jon: It's ‘cause you're such a sweet annoying little thing. No one takes you seriously. Actually, I can't think why I said that, but it's accurate.

Tim: Darn you. Hurry up then, or I might perish in the fires of Chemistry.

Tay: I had a dream about TIM the other day for some really weird reason...
Jem: Hmm. Let me guess - Tim was reborn as a psychotic blue-bird, and you were a Green-eyed lass with a tomato on your nose. Tim swooped down, and smacked into a window, falling limply, deadly, and self-righteously to the ground while you weep over your spoiled wool-jacket.
Tay: Uh, no.

Wilson: *whistles* Oops, I’m not supposed to whistle at girls. I can dance and play a harmonica at the same time instead.
April: Oh, the talent.

Tim Cook: I can act like a gentleman when I want to, and you'd better believe that the farthest I go with water is squirt guns in RL.

Chase: I heard that Paul was your b/f.... Humph... guess that one wasn't true.

Jem: Bah... everyone's left. Abandonment. *croons* I have only yooooouuuuuu.......
Tay: That sounds like you're planning to murder me or something!

Jon: Once I was getting a little carried away about John F Kennedy's “Ich bin ein Berliner” for some reason, and I said, “I am a jelly hotdog!”

Tim Cook: *reroutes the toilet lines so that they cross with the power lines* I call it, SHOCK TOILET!!!!

Matt: 'ello, poppet.
Em: Isn't poppet what guys in old black and white movies call their fiancés?
Matt: You're kidding me.

Chase: How come girls go mad over bagpipe players? ---It's crazy---they seem to be like ...so do you REALLY play then pipes?----next time I know it's ---Do you have a girlfriend?

TimG: You may graciously give the fair lady back her spot on the couch, or taste cold steel.
Tim: *licks his sword* Tastes like chicken seasoned with an olive oil marinade.

Katt: I wish a rugged guy would come on... one in a kilt and a shirt two sizes too small.

Jon: I was wrong...There were about 30 seconds of that Tchaikovsky symphony that I could have danced to

Julia: I think I finally figured out what THOP means... Tim... Hops on Pop!
Katt: Hop, Tim, hop!

Tim: Have a donut, minion.

Lissa: Just making sure everyone knows that the grass is green and the sky is blue but occasionally it can be gray, or some other color that's really odd. Anyway, I really like green skies. Even though I've never seen one. I'd really like to see one though. Wouldn't it be cool to be caught in a tornado?

Jon: I know, it's weird, everyone seems to have problems except me. There are times I think it's not fair, which is really odd.

Wilson: I want to call my girlfriend, let her know I'm ok. Oh wait... I don't have a girlfriend. Darn. I'll call my mom. No, she's not around
Matt: How about your grandma?
Wilson: I'll call....my cat. "Hello, barty" "Meow" "Just wanted to tell you I was ok"
Liz: *nudges Wilson* We're leaving. Wilson: “Oh, gotta go kitty.”

Wilson: Unrequited love *sigh*

Tay: Your eyes are cool, btw. Hazel- ish. My eyes are so boring, kinda dark blue with tints of green sometimes.
Jofes: Enough with my eyes, they're eyes, they're slimy wet “hazel-ish” and I can see with them, I can’t stand it anymore, STOP!

Tay: *cries*
Carl: Don't cry. *thinks that’s the nicest thing he has ever said to anyone*
Tay: What is, “taytay” or “don't cry”?

Mark: If I had a love life, I'd kill myself.

Jem: And, jeepers creepers, you DO have pretty eyes, my lady.

Sadie: What a lovely thought....I'm contributing to civilization by giving my rotting corpse as fertilizer!

Liz: Umbrellas are cuter.

Jon: I've always wanted to go back and live in New England, but lately haven't dared to say so.

Sadie: *grins evilly* We'll finally be able to sing AHFoL in person!
{AHFoL = A Heart Full of Love}

Jon: Never mind going to bed late, I shouldn’t be allowed to go to bed on time!

Tim: "How am I supposed to tell the difference? I mean, there wasn't even a commercial break when I died!" One of the great quotes in the history of man, I can see it now…

April (in a Biology class about molecular bonding): *hopes class lets out soon so that dinner can be had, and bonding time can be spent with her pillow*

Sadie (meaning me): Her true love abandoned her.
Tim: I don't blame him.

Tim (After reading this page): Man, I seem a lot funnier when I look back on what I've said.

Em: Walls are very jealous.

EmilyJ (In lit class): I'm unclear on the meaning of "Thous setst a bate." I understand the concept as a whole that he's trying to communicate, but what does it mean to "set a bate"?
MaryP: That means, I think, a trap or "bait."
Sadie (In a PM): really I thought it was "set a date", you know, like to set two people up....

Chase: I have some brains, but I only use them every couple days.

Jaimie: I've never been able to successfully disguise myself as a table yet.

Kaleb: The Silence is hungry for more
* Jackie has quit IRC (Connection Reset by Peer)*
Sadie: it just killed Jackie *sniff*

Jon: I'm a Nazgul?

Pat:JOFES, SHE GAVE U A COOKIE, WHAT DO YOU SAY?
Jofe: yum

Jon: Any sensible girl would get so mad at me... so glad you're not sensible.

Tay: *snort* guys...
Han: Just think, we have to marry one of those things...

"There is an answer to the doctor's question. All the Dachaus must remain standing. The Dachaus, the Belsens, the Buchenwalds, the Auschwitzes - all of them. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the Earth into a graveyard. Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all, their conscience. And the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance, then we become the gravediggers. Something to dwell on and to remember, not only in the Twilight Zone but wherever men walk God's Earth"
- Rod Serling, From "Deaths-head revisited", on of my favorite Twilight Zone Episodes

Ok I had to read Watership Down because everybody here was talking about it and now I absolutely adore Thlayli so I had to put up a couple of my favorite Bigwig quotes:

"Lots of little Bigwigs, Hazel! Think of that, and tremble!"

"Silflay hraka, u embleer rah!"

Actually the part of this post I was trying to get into quotes didn't come up... Mara Badgermum IS SIX WEEKS PREGNANT!!!!! CONRATULATIONS!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D

Reminds me of some quote that Bill Gates allegedly said, wish I could remember it, but he hated someone because their job was to "put lipstick on a pig." That expression alone makes the quote memorable because I never heard the expression before. How I interpret "lipstick on a pig" is to pretty up something only for it to still be ugly, or to extol the strengths of some product when it won't hide the fact that it's still a poor product.

btw, what does "a slave is never a hedgehog" mean?

:lol: "Though we adore them individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stupid..." Mrs. Banks (on men), "Sister Suffragettte" from Mary Poppins.

That quote is pretty much amazing. I've always noticed guys are a lot less concieted and stupid when they are away from the "male pack" :lol:

Yeah, too true...it's almost as if society expects them to be like that. I have hardly ever known any unpopular guys that are jerks.

Then you haven't met many "unpopular" people.

Again, social status (and gender) has no direct link to personality.
On that note, one of my favorite quotes is from The Killer Angels:
"You take people one at a time. Any man who judges by groups is a pea-wit."

Not always... while it's mostly the popular ones that are the knuckleheads, some of the wanna-bes and unpopular people are too. Sometimes I wonder how people like them with one-digit IQ's can manage...

True. Very true. Except girls are more catty and devious, and guys don't share their feelings as often. But that is another generalization, one that I use when writing from a male perspective.

I'm a bit disturbed that someone had enough time to go back through 3-4 years worth of threads, find this one, and bump it.

What were you doing going back through 4 years of threads exactly?


"It's gonna rain...." -Ollie Williams (family Guy)

I believe the actual quote is, "It's gon' rain"

All this being said, I have a quote to contribute, that just made so much sense to me the first time I heard it.

But, no, Badgrang (my computer won't let me multi-qoute), I have met a lot of unpopular people. I am sort of one of them myself...
I know a lot of popular guys at my school who are total jerks.
They are highly annoying, and mean. Oftentimes one will walk up to me and point at one of his friends and say, "That kid wants to go out with you"(date)
and the other guy will get all defensive.
But I'm not saying all popular guys are jerks, just that I know a lot who are.

Yeah, but I'm not thinking of the wannabes. I don't know any wannabe guys anyway...
I'm thinking of the guys who don't want to be popular, or just don't care.

Oh, yeah. They do the "That-girl-wants-to-go-out-with-you" thing to me too.

"Stealing, of course, is a crime, and a very impolite thing to do. But like most impolite things, it is excusable under certain circumstances. Stealing is not excusable if, for instance, you are in a museum and you decide that a certain painting would look better in your house, and you simply grab the painting and take it there. But if you were very, very hungry, and you had no way of obtaining money, it might be excusable to grab the painting, take it to your house, and eat it." -- Lemony Snicket
