What is your favorite quote at the moment that you heard either a while ago, recently, or whenever?

Could be something from a comic, anime, another game, WoW itself, even a fellow guild member. Tells us all what it is!

I've a ton from Airplane!. What an awesome movie...the best, I think, are these:
Reporter: What kind of plane is it?
Johnny: Oh, it's a big pretty white plane with red stripes, curtains in the windows and wheels and it looks like a big Tylenol.

Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

I can relate to this daily!

I have a few from Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series:

-'The true way to a man's heart is six inches of metal between his ribs. Sometimes four inches will do the job, but to be really sure, I like to have six. Funny how phallic objects are always more useful the bigger they are. Anyone who tells you size doesn't matter has been seeing too many small knives

- "I felt like I needed a button that said, 'No, I don't want to have a bondage three-way with you, thanks for asking, though."

-"I'm your bodyguard. If you die under my protection, the other bodyguards will make fun of me." Edward to Anita

-"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read."

-"I decided to ignore it. If the poodle got loose, I figured I could take it. I was armed."

-"I hoped he was right, but one thing I've learned about vampires-they keep pulling new rabbits out of their cloaks. Big, fanged, carnivorous bunnies that'll eat your eyeballs if you're not paying attention."
