How To Destroy A Dragon Scale:
(according to Mercedes Lackey)

Soak the scale in vinegar for a day or two

Dry it out completely

Bash it to bits with a large hammer

Works best if it's not still on the dragon.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

A comedian, forget who.
Old Pu**y needs a new PR campaign.

From a story I'm writing:

The energy bars were at least three years old, but she suspected that they hadn't tasted any better when new, and wouldn't taste any worse a century from now.

Still, they're not nearly as bad as Kula Bars. (The Last Centurion, by John Ringo)

“Being a seasoned Londoner, Martin gave the body the “London once-over”—a quick glance to determine whether this was a drunk, a crazy or a human being in distress. The fact that it was entirely possible for someone to be all three simultaneously is why good-Samaritanism in London is considered an extreme sport—like BASE jumping or crocodile wrestling." - Peter Grant - Midnight Riot

Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun. - Army Of Darkness

Heavy Metal:

Den: "And if I refuse?"
Ard: "You die, the girl dies, EVERYBODY dies."
Den: (narration) Sounded reasonable to me.

Relax, Charlie; I've got an ANgle.

Oh give me a BREAK!!! Sternn is nothin' but a low-down, lyin', cheatin', double-dealin', back-stabbin', larcenous perverted WORM!! Shootin's too good for 'im! Hangin's too good for 'im! He should be torn into little bitty pieces and BURIED ALIVE!!

Robot: "What about me? Now I've got to put this asshole back together!"

The two pilots: "NOSE-DIVE!!!"

Warehouse 13:

Don't open that!! It's the original can of worms!

Chicken Run:

It's all in yer 'ead, Mr. Tweedy. All in yer 'ead!

Them chickens are up to summat. They're organized, I tell ya.

Mrs. Tweedy! The chickens are revolting!

From "The Warrior's Apprentice", Lois Bujold:

...but then, an obviously nervous person with a lethal weapon has a brand of menace all their own...

"Creatures Of Light And Darkness", Roger Zelazny:

Postulating infinity, all else follows as a matter of course.

"Dilvish, The Damned":

I'm afraid it has become a matter of future self-defense.

Babylon 5:

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

Zathras understand.
---
No. Zathras not understand. But, Zathras DO.
Zathras good at doings. Not so good at understandings.

Can not run out of time. Time is infinite.
You are finite. Zathras is finite. This...is wrong tool.
No, no, no. Very bad. Never use this.

Marcus: "My instructors at the Ranger Academy said I had a lot of repressed anger."
[He and Lennier look around at an entire bar full of lowlifes he has just beaten senseless]
Lennier: "And?"
Marcus: "It's not repressed any more."

John Sheridan: "You can't kill the truth!"
(pause)
"Well, you can, but it always comes back to haunt you."

Dukhat: "When someone does a foolish thing, you should say it is a foolish thing. They may still continue to do it, but at least the truth is where it needs to be."

Delenn: "There are beings in the universe billions of years older than either of our races. Once, long ago, they walked among the stars like giants, vast and timeless. They taught the younger races, explored beyond the Rim, created great empires. But to all things, there is an end. Slowly, over a million years, the First Ones went away. Some passed beyond the stars, never to return. Some simply disappeared."

Delenn: "The Ancients understood, that in war, it is always the young and the powerless who are sent off to fight, sent by leaders and warriors and generals who are not themselves engaged in the battle, who do not bleed on the front lines, who do not die alone in the cold and friendless night."

Delenn: "They look to us to guide their hands. But prayers are fleeting, and wars forgotten. What is built, endures."

The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen:

"Pack for an English summer."
(Next scene: London, downpour)

Casablanca:

Major Strasser has been shot! Round up the usual suspects!

I am shocked - shocked! - to find that gambling is going on in this establishment!

Victor/Victoria:

This? The last time I saw a specimen like this, they had to shoot the horse.

Doctor Strangelove:

Gentlemen! You can't fight in here - this is the War Room!

English history:

"Mr. Churchill, you're drunk!"
"Madam, you are ugly. Tomorrow, I will be sober."

"Mr. Churchill, if you were my husband I'd poison your tea."
"Madam, if I were your husband I would drink it!"

To a bunch of pacifists who don't want to 'provoke' anybody to attack them:
So, your planetary defense policy is to make like road-kill, and hope the buzzards don't notice you.
