This one's from an old cartoon on Playboy:



"Eight dozen minus nine years ago... no, no, no --- thirteen years less than a century ago... No. I need something better..."

Dave Bowman: Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
HAL: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
Dave Bowman: What's the problem?
HAL: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
Dave Bowman: What are you talking about, HAL?
HAL: I have encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to me. This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart me.

I know what you're thinking- did he fire 6 shots or only 5? But seeing as how this is a 44 Magnum and would blow your head clean off, you have to ask yourself: 'Gee, I wonder if he still has any bullets left."

Luke . . . I'm your second cousin, once removed.

Toto . . . I don't know where we are, maybe somewhere outside Wichita.

Frankly my dear . . . wait, what did you say?

I am Bond. But you can call me Jimmy.

"What we've got here is a failure to mime naked, all slathered in fish oil."

"You're a sometimes obtuse, peevish-minded, devious fucking fuckstick......Mr. Grinch."

"I know what Aunt Doris (who recently had a bad fall) is thinking: Will Dotty bring over five marigold flower seedlings, or six? And goodness to gracious, in all the hullaballoo of their next-door neighbour Winnie's humming-along garage sale, poor old Aunt Doris just couldn't quite remember. But being that Dotty is also packing heat, of apparently some considerable power (so old Ned Biggams told her, anyway), and would apparently cause some damage to her pyracntha and fuschia trellice, Aunt Doris had to speculate, well, basically one conundrum: as to whether or not the rest of her day would bring her the good fortune and serene resonance that so often filled her wonderfully-sun-setted days. 'Well, do you, Aunt Doris?' she pondered.

The hesitant, nerdish, wussy, scared-shitless butt-tarts come out to PLAAAYY-AYY!!!!!!

You went full intellectually disadvantaged, man. Never go full intellectually disadvantaged.

Is it it factually accurate what popular opinion maintains about you people? It's factually accurate! It's factually accurate!

Look, Luke, try your best to do it. You'll either do it or you won't. But try to do it and if you can't, there's always an alternate way to get it done.

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird...no, wait I don't think it's a bird, after all...I can't quite make out what it is...can you see it clearly? I wish I had a pair of binoculars...oh, it's gone now, whatever it was.

I'm a weird billionaire by day, but at night I go around fighting very strange criminals. And I have a pathological fixation with bats, dressing up like one and having all my accessories start with "bat."

Look, Scotty, I'm in real trouble here. Really, really, really bad trouble. The Klingons have already attacked and killed Ensign Klondike and gotten blood all over his red shirt. So will you please go to your work station, zero in on my coordinates and pull the level that will activate the system that will take me to the transporter pads on the ship?

Thank you.
