Favorite Sci-fi Quotes

Matt had a post on his blog a few days ago that listed some of his favorite comedic movie quotes. I thought it was such a good idea that I stole it; only this time it's all about science fiction. Here are some of my favorites............. Are you telling me you built a time machine out of a DeLorean?" Marty McFly Back to the Future "Come with me if you want to live" and "It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead" Kyle Reese The Terminator "Do, or do not. There is no try" Yoda The Empire Strikes Back "Get away from her, you bitch" Ripley Aliens "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die" Inigo Montoya The Princess Bride "I hate snakes, Jock. I hate 'em" Indiana Jones Raiders Of The Lost Ark "I know kung fu" Neo The Matrix "Lycans are allergic to silver. We have to get the bullets out quickly, or they end up dying on us during questioning." "What happens to them afterward?" "We put the bullets back in." Selene & Michael Underworld I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attacks ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain... Time to die." Roy Baty Bladerunner "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun" Ash Army Of Darkness Okay, your turn...............

Hey! Looks like I'm also first with a quote on your page.

Here's one from The Abyss.

So raise your hand if you think that was a Russian water-tentacle.

DesLily said...

I think Ron Weasley had many of the best lines in the HP movies..one of them I always remember is:

Why spiders? Why couldn't have it been follow the butterflies?"

Avery DeBow said...

My favorite from Serenity:

"This landing is gonna get pretty interesting.
"Define "interesting".
"Oh God, oh God, we're all going to die?"

And Spaceballs, just because:
"I see your Scwartz is as big as mine."

The Curmudgeon said...

All good so far.

How about (from Star Trek IV -- the whales movie): "Doc gave me a pill and I got a new kidney."

SQT said...

These are so good you guys are making me feel inadequate.

S.M.D. said...

Well how about some Firefly quotes because that show is the best show ever made:
Wash: "Everything looks good from here... (beat...playing with plastic dinosaurs over his console) Yes. Yes, this is a fertile land, and we will thrive."

(as Stegosaurus) "We will rule over all this land, and we will call it... 'This Land'."

(as T-Rex) "I think we should call it...your grave!"

(Stegosaurus) "Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

(T-Rex) "Ha ha HA! Mine is an evil laugh...now die!"


Jayne: "Testing, testing. Captain, can you hear me?"
Mal: "I'm standing right here."
Jayne: "You're coming through good and loud."
Mal: " 'Cause I'm standing right here."

I know there were plenty in the Firefly/Serenity bunch, but can't think of them off hand.

Building on Deslily's Harry Potter, I loved this from Filch:

"Time was, detention would finding you hanging by your thumbs in the dungeon. God, I miss the screaming."

Dan O'Connor said...

Hey, SQT, I'm back....

River, to Jayne: "I can kill you... with my mind"

Giles: Why should someone what to harm Cordelia?
Willow: Maybe because they met her? Did I say that?

Willow: The other night I dreamt that Xander... Uh, it wasn't Xander. In fact it wasn't me. In fact, it was a friend's dream, and she can't remember it.

Spike: The bird's dead, Dru. You left it in a cage, and you didn't feed it, and now it's all dead, just like the last one

Buffy: I think I speak for everyone here when I say, "huh?"

Doctor Who

The Doctor: What's the use of a good quotation if you can't change it?

The Doctor: First things first, but not necessarily in that order

Cassandra: Oh, that's just Chav-tastic

Rose: Should I stay with him?
Sarah-Jane: Somethings are worth getting your heart broken for.

Oh, I could go for days...

Crunchy Carpets said...

Hee..and trivia..the Roy Batty quote..one of my fave's..totally ad libbed.

Rutger felt that Roy needed to SAY something before he popped his clogs..that is what he came up with!

Stewart Sternberg said...

ARMY OF DARKNESS has so many good quotes. Who can forget: "Well, hel-l-l-l-l-o, Mr. Fancy Pants!" or "Come gimme some sugar."

Hmmmm...people quoting Buffy? What's next...the greatest lines from "The Dresden Files"?

The line you included from Bladerunner is an astonishing line...delivered with such passion. It always strikes me, the idea that all our experiences are gone in a second, and that everything is impermanent.

SQT said...

That was ad libbed Crunchy? Damn!

My Reflecting Pool said...

The yoda quote is one I say to my kids all the time. I love it. I also do the Princess Bride quote. How about:

"Its Bigbootaaa."
John Bigboote


"No matter where you go, there you are"
Buckaroo Banzai

Fab said...

Let me get back to you with some Farscape quotes. It's to early in the morning right now to think straight. But there are good ones there as well. Especially from Crighton.

Alex said...

You forgot the greatest movie quote of all time:

"I am sick and tired of all these motherfuckin' snakes on this motherfuckin' plane!"

Fab, remember this moment?

Aeryn: She gives me a woody!

Crichton: It's 'the willies.'

Also, you guys haven't come up with a LotR quote yet, so here's one of my favorites:

Frodo: It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill him when he had the chance.

Gandalf: Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo's hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play yet, for good or ill before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

The Terminator movies seemed to provide reams of quotes.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Hail to the King, baby.

Sarah said...

I said, "Do or do not. There is no try" to one of the kids in my class of 7th graders, and they looked at me blankly. I almost spontaneously died on the spot.

Scotty said...

From 'Aliens' -

"Hey, Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?"

No, have you?

DesLily said...

I guess I have to put a Original Star Trek movie quote in here!

Spock: "One moment doctor; I'm receiving multiple distress signals..."
McCoy: "I don't doubt it."

Fab said...

yeah Alex, that's the quote I alway remember too:

Aeryn: Woody. Human saying. I've heard you say it often when you don't trust someone, or they make you nervous, then they give you -

Crichton: The willies! She gives you the willies.
(episode:Thank God it's Friday, Again)

Peter P said...

From Firefly...

Inara: So, do aliens live among us?
Kaylee: Yeah. One of them's a doctor.

Avery DeBow said...

'Hmmmm...people quoting Buffy? What's next...the greatest lines from "The Dresden Files"?'

Well, The Dresden Files didn't just get named one of Time Magazines best 100 TV shows ever.

It's cool you don't get Joss Whedon, man. Many people don't understand God.

I've always liked -

"I have come here to chew bubblegum or kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum."
