"And so it begins ..."

"Shoe money tonight!!!"

"I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike, as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price. I want to look up into your lifeless eyes and wave, like this. Can you and your associates arrange that for me, Mr. Morden?"

"In every revolution, there is one man with a vision."
"I shall consider it."

"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe."

"He knows, doctor ... he knows."

"If you value your lives, be somewhere else."

"You shouldn't think that just because I'm looking at you while you're talking to me, that I'm necessarily listening to or caring about what you're saying. It's just something I do to be polite."

"Let's get the hell out of here."

"Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova. Commander. Daughter of Andre and Sophie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance and the boot that is going to kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth, sweetheart. I am death incarnate, and the last living thing that you are ever going to see. God sent me."

"I'm a terrible racist. I think all those people with the funny accents and weird skin color should go back to wherever they came from and leave this country to the people who rightfully stole it from the Indians ... which they deserved."

"Our mission is to seek out new life ... well, there it sits!"

"Yes, yes, Zathras is used to being beast of burden to other people's needs. Very sad life. Probably have very sad death, but at least there is symmetry."

"The hardest thing in this world is to live in it."

"Then I will tell you a great secret, Captain. Perhaps the greatest of all time. The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station and the nebula outside, that burn in the stars themselves. We are starstuff, we are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. And as we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective."

"There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope. The death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender. The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revalation. No one knows the shape of that future, or where it will take us. We know only that is always paved in pain."

"I haven't processed everything yet. My brain isn't really functioning on the higher levels. It's pretty much 'Fire bad. Tree pretty.'"
"There's a certain dramatic irony attached to all this. A synchronicity that borders on predestination, one might say."
"Fire bad. Tree pretty."

"We're all born as molecules in the hearts of a billion stars, molecules that do not understand politics, policies, and differences. In a billion years, we foolish molecules forgot who we are and where we came from. In desperate acts of ego, we gave ouselves names. We fight over lines on maps and pretend our light is better than everyone else's. The flame reminds us of the pieces of those stars that live inside us. A spark that tells us: you should know better. The flame also reminds us that life is precious, as each flame is unique. When it goes out, it's gone forever. And there will never be another quite like it. So many candles will go out tonight. I wonder some days if we can see anythiing at all."

"Yes! You will all be turned into vermin. And some of you will be fish! Yeah, you in the back will be fish!"

"I should have done this a long time ago. Well, five-card stud, nothing wild, and the sky's the limit..."

"Mom? Whad'ya doin'? Mom? ... Mom? ... Mommy?"

das

OK, I'm not leaving on that note ... one more ...

"Aw, the thing is, Jeremy's gone now, the cards are still hot, and I'm feeling like I might be just a little somewhere in the vicinity of the zone. And you know what that means?"
"Please don't say it."
"Shoe money tonight!!!"

"Hey, you started it man, making me look like a jerk at the Max."
"Well, that's what you are."
"What did you say?"
"You heard me. Now get out of my face."
"And what if I don't, punk?!"
"Then I'll just have to make you, PUNK."

This needs no context, or identification to truly appreciate. But it is, without a doubt, one of the most inspired moments of entertainment in the history of the television.

das, ya missed a couple:

"Less talk. More synthahol."

--or--

"I am NOT a merry man!"

You've included two of my faves: from Marcus and Ivanova.

Ivanova is always right...



Rypro, 6 of em are from B5, 3 from TOS. That should narrow it down.

You post this, but failed to mention perhaps the one that can surpass it:

"I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so.... scared .

Lenny Briscoe and Adam Schiff from L&O alone can account for most of my favorite quotes from television.

The best of DA Adam Schiff:

Coma
+ "Want to try to turn the law around? Be my guest, just don't complain to me you're overworked."
+ "Well, I understand you've been promoted from assistant district attorney to supreme deity."
+ Adam: "Hmmm...smart."
Jack: "Lucky."
Adam: "Or innocent."

Blue Bamboo
+ "This defense! Like my grandmother's nightgown, it covers everything."

Family Values
+ "Don't bother inviting me to your disbarment party."

White Rabbit
+ "Five minutes of Bill Kunstler goes a long way. When you were learning to walk, he and I were on the same side of the courtroom, protecting protesters from the government."
+ "In those days, they wiretapped anyone who wore a paisley shirt."

Competence
+ Claire: "Now all we have to do is hope the jury understands the difference between motive and intent."
Adam: "Good luck. That's beyond most members of the bar."

Precious
+ "Munchausen, shmunchausen."
+ Jack: "If those were my children, I'd want that woman in prison."
Adam: "With a 15 percent chance she's innocent? I wouldn't tell that to the next Mrs. McCoy."
+ "If your crystal ball is that good, I'll tell the mayor we don't need police anymore."

Scoundrels
+ "I'm beginning to think the defense case is rather convincing."

House Counsel
+ "Smart has nothing to do with honest."
+ Adam: "What is this, Bernie's Bargain Basement? Cop to four murders and get only five years?"
Jack: "When I made the deal, I had no idea..."
Adam: "You had no idea because your blood was rushing downstream to somewhere south of the border."

Guardian
+ "You tell your detectives that the Bill of Rights isn't a doormat."

Progeny
+ "Is there anyone in town who is not using this office for their own personal agenda?"

Rage
+ "Someone ought to give our detectives a crash course in fourth amendment search and seizure law!"
+ "Without motive, you couldn't convince a jury water's wet."
+ Jack: "If we can establish that we would have inevitably discovered the trade..."
Adam: "What psychic are you planning to call as your first witness?"
+ Jack: "This is about convicting one man of homicide."
Adam: "Man, don't you wish. I've got news for you: if enough people think it's about racism, it's about racism."
+ "No one's being condescending here, young lady."

Performance
+ "Points for what?!"
+ "[They] must have taken an oath of stupidity. Even the mob doesn't command such loyalty anymore."
+ Jack: "I think I can win."
Adam: "That's great. You get an A for self-esteem."
+ "So you've got something legal and inadmissible that you're trying to get in the back door twice. I like it."
+ Claire: "The Judge recommended that they serve two years."
Adam: "Wonderful--they'll be out in time for graduation."
+ "Oh, The Constitution--that pesky thing."
+ "Peer pressure isn't against the law."

Seed
+ "What are you going to do, put a test tube on the stand?"

Wannabe
+ Claire: "The school circled the limos to keep the Barclay name out of it."
Adam: "I'm shocked."
Jack: "This isn't stink bombs in the boys room, Adam! They hindered prosecution of an A felony!"
Adam: "Now I'm very shocked."

Act of God
+ "In the future, if we ever go to trial again, maybe we ought to know what we're doing."
Listen! (.wav format)

Privileged
+ "Got no case? Come to us and we'll give you all the help you need!"

Bad Faith
+ "Even golfers retire."
+ Adam: "What have you been inhaling? You want to name the Catholic Church as a co-conspirator?"

Purple Heart
+ "This defense lawyer makes suspects out of your own witnesses! We're lucky this isn't on TV!"
+ Adam: "Well, at least there is one redeeming fact."
McCoy: "And what's that?"
Adam: "Saving the citizens a little money, losing two cases for the price of one."

Switch
+ Jack: "I got the feeling she was more confused than anything."
Adam: "With three personalities, who wouldn't be?"
+ "It's the father, it's the daughter, it's Bobby. You need a scorecard to keep track!"
+ "Now you're saying the father didn't do it. You ought to take this roller coaster to Coney Island."
+ "In other words, you have no idea who could have committed this crime."

Pride
+ "Very touching, a hustler in love."
+ Jack: "Gays are unstable. Gays are violent."
Adam: "Yeah, they're so emotionally fragile they just go off their pretty little heads."
+ "Don't worry about two out of five, worry about one out of twelve."

Season 6 (1 2 3 4 5 7 8 9 10 ?)

Rebels

Jack: "Judge Connors."
Adam: "Oh, good. I don't think she subscribes [to the biker magazine]."

Jeopardy
+ "You lost the dialing instructions for your phone?"
+ "The last new trick he learned was the Twist."
+ "You got around double jeopardy. You climbed Everest in your shorts. On a cold day."

Paranoia
+ "Where in your job description does it say you're supposed to be happy?"

Angel
+ Jack: "The Oprah-fication of America ended when the Menedez brothers weren’t convicted. The pendulum has swung, Adam. People don’t care about why anymore, they just care about what.”
Adam: "Just get this over with before the pendulum swings back."
+ "This is a murder trial, not a theodicacy seminar!"

Remand
+ "You have the victim and the confession, you want me to gift wrap it for you?"
+ "Muñoz just crawled halfway out of the hole we dug for him thirty years ago. You hit him on the head with a shovel before he crawls all the way out."
+ "We're legally, morally, and ethically required to keep this information from him, and that's exactly what we're going to do."
+ Jack: "Didn't you tell me you never make this job personal?"
Adam: "I lied...second time in thirty years."

Corpus Delicti
+ "You've been reading your law journal upside-down."
+ "Wonderful. Dear Diary--Killed Ruth Thomas today and threw her body into a cesspool. Do you think he's that stupid?"

Trophy

Deceit
+ "Who the hell is running the police department, Anita Bryant?"

Atonement

Jack: "There's a world of difference between a jealous lover and some horny bastard who's mad he can't get to first base."
Adam: "Eloquent. Can't wait for your closing argument."
+ "Scannel is a major drug dealer. This Johnny Stivers works for him. Stivers doles out drugs to Sharon Lasko. Wild idea, but her death just might have something to do with drugs."

Girlfriends
+ "Crack open the piggy bank, see what tumbles out."
+ "Where'd you do your graduate work, law school or West Point?"
+ Claire: "There is a school of thought that a woman owns her own body for the purposes of recreation and procreation. She also has the right to sell it."
Adam: "And where is this school located?"

Pro Se
+ "No comment? If you were trying to churn the waters, congratulations."

Adam: "Oh, will you wake him up, Miss Ross? We're approaching the 21st Century. It matters, Jack. When are you going to get a new tie?"
+ Jack: "We're getting creamed."
Adam: "It's nice that you and the media have finally agreed on something."
+ Adam: "Started with a murder, ends with an execution. You got what you wanted. Take the rest of the week off."
Jack : "It's Friday, Adam."
Adam: "So it is. See you Monday."

Mad Dog

+ "Murder is murder--wherever."

The best of Detective Lenny Briscoe:

Season Five
Second Opinion
(The M.E. has explained precautions needed to examine a woman who emitted "noxious fumes" in the ER)
Right. And that means dragging out the extra large role of red tape.

Coma
(Upon entering a comedy club, the comedian makes a joke about Briscoe and Logan's attire.)
Lucky for this guy the audience isn't armed.

Blue Bamboo **QLB**
(Upon finding a previously-hidden bullet hole on a victim
Great. I liked him better when he had a heart attack.

Family Values
(To Mike, who thinks a woman's presumed suicide could actually be a kidnapping)
There's no forced entry, the car's clean, and... unless you're getting psychic messages... no ransom demand.

White Rabbit
(Commenting on the FBI's efforts to stop anti-war activists, including Catholic priests and Dr. Spock, during the '60's)
Every once in a while they actually tangled with a criminal.

Competence
Forensic tech: See the blood stains here? That's type AB negative.
Lennie: Oh good! I got dibs on his liver.

Precious
M.E.: The baby was clean, well-fed, and wearing a new diaper. Everything Dr. Spock says you should do for a baby.
Lennie: Yeah. I guess I skipped the part about stuffing 'em in a cooler.

Virtue
(Discussing the difficulty of prosecuting a rape case after the victim died in an unrelated automobile accident)
Claire: I'm not saying we drop this.
Lennie: No? What do we do? Get Madam LaSonga to throw a séance?

Scoundrel
Coffee cart vendor (deciphering an order for "skinny cap, no lead."): Decaffeinated cappuccino, with skim milk.
Lennie: What's the point?

House Counsel
Mike (trying to refute a woman's excuse that she doesn't remember the last time she spoke to her ex-husband): You remember the last time you spoke to your ex, Lennie?
Lennie: July 17th, 1994, 2:35 p.m.

Guardian
Social Security employee: Under the Social Security Act of 1972, addicts are entitled to $750 a month.
Lennie: Somebody actually thinks this is a good idea?

(Discussing the relationship of a divorced, middle-aged man and a young woman)
Mike: He shacks her up in this place and then he lies about it. I, for one, don't believe his 'Father Flannigan' act.
Lennie: I, for one, am jealous.

Progenitor
Lab technician: It's a photocopy from a machine with dirt on the drums...If you get me the machine and it hasn't been serviced, I can maybe do a positive I.D.
Lennie: Oh great. We'll organize a line-up of Xerox machines.

Rage
(A female stock broker explains that to succeed in the business you have to "pull down your Jockeys and take out the yardstick," then makes a pass at Mike.)
Lennie (to Mike): You got your yardstick handy?

Performance **QLB**
Mike: Looking for a date?

Without using Google or IMDB to find the good ones (or to verify the ones I do remember, so sorry if I goof them up) here's a few that I can rattle off the top of my head:


"She's dead. Wrapped in plastic." -Twin Peaks, Pilot

"Mrs. Peel. We're needed." - Steed, found in the opening of most of the Diana Rigg episodes of The Avengers

"Not gonna happen, my friend." - Paul, repeated a number of times in the second season of Mad About You

"What's that do?" - The Judge, Buffy

"I don't want to be known as the 'up the butt' girl." Charlotte(?), Sex and the City

"The next person that asks "Have we got a video?" I'm gonna smash their head through the kitchen window!"
"Oh, have we got a video?" - Vyvyan and Neil, The Young Ones

"Bunnies aren't cute, like everyone supposes. They've got beady eyes and twichy little noses. And what's with all those carrots? What do they need such good eyesight for anyway? Bunnies! Bunnies! It much be bunnies!" - Anya, Buffy

Buffy Quotes

*Tabula Rasa, when everyone forgets who they are. Spike and Giles find out they're both English*

Giles: "You think we're brothers?"
Spike: *snarls* "Father. Oh God how I must hate you."

*Spike, when he thinks his name is Randy Giles*

Spike: "Randy Giles? Why not just name me Horny Giles? Or in Desperate Need Of A Shag Giles?"

Giles: "Randy's...a family name."

Spike: "I knew I hated you for a reason."

*Talking about Adam*

Giles: "You never train with me anymore. he's gonna kick your ass."

Buffy: "Are you drunk?"

Giles: Quite a bit actually."

OTHERS

Xander: "There's a party in my eye socket and everyone's invited."

Buffy: " I can beat up the demons until the cows come home... and then I can beat up the cows."

Spike: "Come on! Vampires! Grrr! Nasty. Let's annihilate them. For justice, and for the safety of puppies, and Christmas, right? Let's fight that evil. Let's kill something. Oh, come on!"

Buffybot:" Anya! How is your money?"
Anya: *big smile* "Fine, thank you for asking!"

--that last one is way funnier then it looks if you know Anya's character well.

Then of course the Xander quote in my sig.

I could quote Buffy all night if I wasn't so tired.

As well as that reads, you just have to see it to really appreciate it. To see those beautiful blue eyes of her's so cold and steely. Classic.

Some Theodore Sturgeon classics:

"Miss Chappel...I had the strangest dream. You were trying to tell me something, but I couldn't hear you."

"I see no logic in preferring Stonn over me..."

"Stonn, she is yours. You may find, that after a time, having...is not so pleasing a thing as wanting. It's illogical, but it's often true."

"I shall do neither. I have killed my Captain. And my friend."


Some latter day cold chills words.

"Mr. Worf...fire."

Dukat: "I thought you were a realist, Commander. Instead, you wallow in sentimentality. You disappoint me."
Sisko: "Don't expect me to lose any sleep over it."

And just for yuks...

"You were working for her, she was working for them...was anybody on that ship working for me?"

"Oh, it's you. Black Belt Barbie."

One of my favorite Buffy quotes:
"I was happy. Wherever I was, I was happy...at peace. I knew that everyone I cared about was alright....I knew it. Time didn't mean anything. Nothing had form, but I was still me, you know. And I was warm and I was loved and I was finished....complete. I don't understand theology, dimensions, any of it really, but I think I was in Heaven, but now I'm not. I was torn out of there, pulled out by my friends.
Everything here is hard, and bright, and violent. Everything I feel, everything I touch, this is hell. Just getting through the next moment and the one after that, knowing what I've lost..."

das got one that comes to mind right away for me,

"Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova. Commander. Daughter of Andre and Sophie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance and the boot that is going to kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth, sweetheart. I am death incarnate, and the last living thing that you are ever going to see. God sent me."

Classic stuff.

But my favorite was,

"I'm sorry, we thought you were dead." - "I was. I'm better now."

Best line ever.

Another great Buffy line:

“I’m tired of being everybody’s butt monkey.”

An obscure one, from Soap:
During the trial, Chief of Police Tinkler asks the judge if he has time to go to the bathroom, and is told
“Don’t take anything to read.”
