Absolutely wonderful use of the english language.

Do one-liners that have become internet memes count?

Why not? A one-liner is a one-liner is a one-liner.
And these, though I'm not personally intimate with them, yet, are enticing!

I know that song, Lola.
I'm going to be singing it for days. Thanks!
I never knew what they were saying.

From Narnia 2 - Prince Caspian:

Lucy just gave soldier-of-fortune mouse Reepicheep some healing potion. He gets up, and discovers that his tail got cut off.

Reepicheep: "Perhaps...a drop more?"
Lucy: "I don't think it really does that."
Reepicheep: "You could give it a go!"

Enchanted:

Nathaniel: "Sire? Do you....like yourself?"
Prince Edward: "What's not to like?"

Doctor Who:

9th Doctor: "What's your name?"
Rose: "Rose Tyler."
Doctor: "Nice to meet you, Rose. Run for your life!"

11th Doctor: "Amy! You swallowed a planet!"
Amy: "I'm PREGNANT, Doctor."

Transformers 2:

A twin robot: "That hurt!"
Other twin: "It's an ass-kickin', It's supposed to hurt!"

Buffy:

(Waiting for the eclipse, when the Mayor will transform into a demon and eat everybody alive) "He's going to make us listen to the whole speech? Oooooooh, evil."

More Babylon 5:

Lyta Alexander: "Captain? They're pissed."

Londo Mollari: "Is there anyone along our borders with whom we are not currently at war? Only an idiot fights a war on two fronts. Only the heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Idiots would fight a war on TWELVE fronts."

Vir Cotto: "What do I want? What do *I* want?
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 at too high a price. I would gaze up into your lifeless eyes and wave, like this. (holds up right hand and wiggles fingers at Morden) Can your associates arrange that for me, Mr. Morden?"

[The irony is that of all the people Morden asked "What do you want?", only Vir got exactly what he asked for. And he did wave, like this.]

Seriously, we could fill this whole thread with Babylon 5 quotes and start another one.

Spaced Invaders:

Commander: "Congratulations on our glorious victory! It...WAS a glorious victory, wasn't it?"
Pilot: "No, but if we think fast we might live to lie about it."

Gremlins 2:

Genius Gremlin: (Pulls out a large revolver and shoots the Doofus Gremlin) "Now I ask you, was that civilized? No, clearly not. Fun, yes; but hardly civilized!"

Holmes On Homes:

The plans were drawn up by a moron, and then they didn't follow them!

A few from some of my favourite shows and people:

The bible may say thou shalt not kill, but it was a little vague on kneecapping. Firefly

I'm not a psychopath, Anderson. I'm a high-functioning sociopath. Do your research. Sherlock, with Benedict Cumberbatch.


That's all it takes. One lonely naive man, desperate to show off. And a woman clever enough to make him feel special.
Sherlock again.

Count Piotr's hand slapped down hard upon the table. "Good God, woman, where have you been?" he cried furiously.

A morbid lunacy overtook her. She smiled fiercely at him, and held up the bag. "Shopping."
Barrayar - Louis Mcmaster Bujold.

The universe is very big... sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen, and we call them miracles.
Matt Smith as Dr Who.

People assume that time is a static progression... it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.
David Tennant. Dr Who

Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.
Albert Einstein.

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
Carl Sagan

The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it
Nei Degrasse Tyson.

You know, it is a terrible thing to appear on television, because people think that you actually know what you're talking about.
David Attenborrough.


Enjoy. :D

Then he turned twenty-six
-Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Which may not mean much to many, unless you see it in context. I got introduced to it yesterday while exploring where an Internet meme featuring Tyson came from.

Here's the entire quote:

Isaac Newton. You read his writings. Hair stands up -- I don’t have hair there but if I did it would stand up -- on the back of my neck. The man was connected to the universe in ways that I’ve never seen another human being connected. It’s kind of spooky, actually.

He discovers the laws of optics. He figures out that white light is composed of colors. That’s kind of freaky right there. You take your colors of the rainbow and put them back together, you get white light again. That freaked out the artists of the day. How does that work? Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet gives you white!

The laws of optics. He discovers the laws of motion and the universal law of gravitation.

Then a friend of his says, “Why are these orbits of the planets in the shape of an ellipse (a sort of flattened circle)? Why aren’t they some other shape?”

And Newton says, “I don’t know. I’ll get back to you.”

So he goes home and comes back a couple months later. “Here’s why. They’re actually conic sections, sections of a cone that you cut.”

So they say “How did you find this out?”

“Well, I had to invent integral and differential calculus to determine this.”

Then he turned twenty-six.[Tyson raises his hands and mimes being speechless.]

Then he turned twenty-six.

We got people slogging through calculus in college just to learn what it is that Isaac Newton invented on a dare, practically. So that’s my man, Isaac Newton.


PS, you can see that live at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=danYFxGnFxQ

PPS--The internet meme (which I imagine everyone else knew already) is "We've got a badass over here." See any meme site.

I've attended a number of SF conventions over the years, and tend to collect buttons that are currently plastered over the outside of my cubicle. A few one-liners there I might share:

On a good day I can do the work of three men-Larry, Moe and Curly


Out of my mind...back in ten minutes


I killed Schrodinger's Cat


I operate at a 90 degree angle to reality
Quote has to be on Shannon Foraker's desk somewhere....

He who lives by the sword; dies by the crossbow bolt
And this is the one on Sonya Hemphill's desk

I didn't claw my way to the top of the food chain to eat vegetables


The two most common things in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity


Age is a very high price to pay for maturity
Can't wait for prolong

The problem with troubleshooting is that trouble shoots back
Good quote for Anton and Victor

There is always one more imbecile than you counted on


People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it is easier to harass rich old women than motorcycle gangs
