    How about: If someone tries to kill you, you try and kill them right back!

    From Stargate SG-1
    Mitchell: Y'know, that's what I like about you, Teal'c. Your positive attitude! Heck, you're probably already past this whole alien bug thing, and thinking about what movie you wanna rent when you get home!

    Teal'c: I was considering Old School.

    From Star Trek
    Spock: Logic...logic...logic...Logic is the beginning of wisdom, Lt. Valeris. Not the end.

    Spock: If I were human, I believe my response would be "Go to Hell." If I were human.

    Jem'Hadar Captain: I am First Ometiklan, and I am dead. We are all dead, until we prove ourselves on the field of battle. Victory is life!

    Jem'Hadar Troops: Victory is life!

    Chief O'Brien: I am Miles Edward O'Brien, and I'm alive. And I very much intend on staying that way!

    Worf: Captain, I protest. I am NOT a Merry Man!

    For Galactica-

    Petty Officer 2nd Dualla: I believe it was your ten minutes, sir.
    Col. Saul Tigh: The old man's so tired he can't even remember it's his turn.

    Commander William Adama: There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.

    Number Six: Procreation is one of God's commandments.
    Doctor Gaius Baltar: Really? Well, I'm sure someday if you're a good Cylon, he'll reward you with a lovely little walking toaster of your very own.

    Admiral Helena Cain: Do you always get what you want?
    Lt. Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace: Most of the time... sir.
    Admiral Helena Cain: Good... me too.

    President Laura Roslin: You have Pegasus, he has Galactica. Two heavily-armed, very powerful warships. Now, I am sure that Pegasus would prevail in any fight-
    Commander William Adama: [interrupting] -I wouldn't count on that-
    President Laura Roslin: -but certainly, there'd be heavy damage and you'd take significant casualties. So you can go out there and fight it out with Galactica or you can compromise. And those are the only two options on the table, period.
    Admiral Helena Cain: How the two of you have survived this long, I will never know.

    Number Six: You know what I miss?... Sports.

    Commander William Adama: [President Roslin is bedridden, dying of cancer, and coughing profusely] What can I get you?
    President Laura Roslin: [sarcastically] A new body. Perhaps, one of those young Cylon models from the Resurrection Ship.
    Commander William Adama: I can't see you as a blonde.
    President Laura Roslin: You'd be surprised.

    President Laura Roslin: [talking about Baltar] He's an odd one, isn't he?
    Billy Keikeya: [in falsetto] Cuckoo...

    Petty Officer 2nd Dualla: [after being taken hostage while trying to negotiate with prisoners] I don't even know how I came into this detail.
    Billy Keikeya: The president thought you might be valuable.
    Petty Officer 2nd Dualla: The president doesn't know who I am.
    Billy Keikeya: I told her. Sorry.
    Petty Officer 2nd Dualla: [sarcastically] On the other hand, it is nice to get out of the CIC. Break up the day, move around, meet new people.

    Lt. Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace: [Starbuck's filling in for Apollo at the squadron briefing] Now, one of you has been coming in a little hot lately, a little too hot, a little, um - oh I don't know, he's-burning-up-the-deck-with-his-skids-because-he-just-can't-pull-back-on-the-throttle hot. Now who is this speed demon, my prince?
    Boxey: Flat Top, sir!
    [the squadron catcalls]
    Lt. Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace: Flat Top, you got a need for speed, do ya? Just can't wait to get back to the Big G and the loving embrace of your fellow pilots? Or maybe you have a hot date with your right hand?
    [more catcalls]
    Ryan 'Flat Top' Cisco: Hey, it never gets a headache!
    Lt. Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace: Tell you what, Flat Top: you come in too hot today and you may have to start using your left. Okay, you've been fun, you've been a great audience, dismissed!

    Col. Saul Tigh: [Col. Tigh happens upon Tyrol in a tool room] What's this, Chief?
    Chief Petty Officer Tyrol: I'm making solvent, sir, to clean machine parts.
    Col. Saul Tigh: Solvent my ass. I know a still when I smell it.

    D'anna Biers: [about Baltar] What a strange little man.

    Col. Saul Tigh: This is a military vessel, we have rumors for every occasion.

    Doctor Cottle: [to Gaius Baltar on an MRI table, who just had an outburst of yelling at no-one present ] Will you stop going crazy in there?
    Doctor Gaius Baltar: [in the most paranoid voice imaginable] I'm not crazy!

    Doctor Gaius Baltar: I wonder if she's a real blonde.
    Number Six: I doubt it.

    Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: [before hitting an assailant over the head with a beer bottle] Were you looking for *this*?

    Crewman Specialist Cally: [Chief Tyrol has been wrongly accused by Col. Tigh of being a Cylon] I've known the Chief for years. He's

    I always thought that line was hilarious[face_laugh] One of my favorites. I remember my dad watching it with me, he was not a fan of the show and never seen an episode up to that point, but laughed when he heard that.

    Big Trouble in Little China:

    Kurt Russell: "It's all in the reflexes!"

    and, when asked if it was the first time he ever killed someone before:

    "Of course Not!"

    Minority Report:

    John Anderton: You see the dilemma don't you. If you don't kill me, precogs were wrong and precrime is over. If you do kill me, you go away, but it proves the system works. The precogs were right. So, what are you going to do now? What's it worth? Just one more murder? You'll rot in hell with a halo, but people will still believe in precrime. All you have to do is kill me like they said you would. Except you know your own future, which means you can change it if you want to. You still have a choice Lamar. Like I did.

    From Riddick: "I've done... unbelievable things... in the name of a faith that was never my own. And he'll do to her what he did to me."

    From Galaxy Quest: "Does the rolling help?"

    From Serenity: "Shiny, let's be bad guys!"

    From The Crow: Albrecht: Well, I am the police, and I say, "Don't move!" Snow White. You move, you're dead.
    Eric Draven: And I say, "I'm dead," and I move.

    just some of my faves.

    Mal: Well look at this! It appears we got here just in the nick of time! What does that make us?
    Zoe: Big damn heros, sir!
    Mal: Ain't we just...

    I think that scene is awesome, the whole thing with the witch burning, but those lines just sum up everything about "Firefly".

    Most of the good Firefly ones have been taken, but I always loved this one:

    Book (after being shot): ...think I might...need a preacher...
    Mal: Yeah, that's good. You lie there and be ironical.

    Luke Skywalker. "I care." Sums him up in two words.

    From the Prisoner.

    Number 6: Who are you?
    Number 2: The new Number 2.
    Number 6: Who is Number 1?
    Number 2: You are Number 6.
    Number 6: I am not a number, I am a free man.

    The Lord says quit changin' the subject, and answer the *censored* question!

    I'm the most wanted man on my island. Therefore, I am no longer on my island!

    The Lord says I'm pretty much OK. But you, you're *censored*

    Carter: .....
    Mitchell: Well, there is one...
    Teal'c: Darth Vader.
    Vala: Really, how did that turn out?
