Used this one on people. They promptly shut up.

The big speech from Dreams, the headfirst through someone's vagina comment, and some stuff from Choices. Specifically, this one.

If we include fora member's quotes I would like to quote Belial who quoted someone else I can't think of right now...

"Pants are an illusion."

There are others, but can't think of them... and then there's the story of belial's sister.... *laughs*

Mine has been, ever since I read it,

"Come now, do you really expect me to do coordinate substitution in my head while strapped to a centrifuge?"
"No, Mr Bond! I expect you to die!"
"It was like five in the morning and he said he'd show me his hamster"

Ooh! This reminds me I never posted that quote of cypherspace's at a London meetup.
My hat is an extention of me, but does not define me.
You should have seen the hat. It wasn't black, but it was beautiful.

I only really use "we're grownups now..." irl. Oh and "It turns out you can't take responsibility for someone else's happiness" but that's another story :(

I will however endeavour to use the vagina one more now, as well as the pokemon which I keep meaning to use. I do shift the hyphen when I speak but few people even realise I've done it, or they look at me strangely and then carry on talking.
