I've been known to randomly break into Veruca Salt's song with much gusto.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

I personally like Burton's movie better (she does not sing there but that is not the reason :wink: ).

"Bah! Even with children he won't let anything slip!"

Da-Da-Daaaaaaa (etc)


That's the one. I love the way it's even more surreal than usual.
Sort of like Poincare's kitten...

Rats need another quote now.
OK, two from Mae West in "She done him wrong"

"Come up and see me some time"

and the song

"I like a guy what takes his time"

(How did she get away with that...?)

From Catch-22...

(this is from memory, so paraphrased)

"Personally, I intend to live forever, or die in the attempt."
Reading is Knowledge
Knowledge is Power
Power Corrupts
Corruption is a Crime
Crime doesn't Pay

So...If you read, you will go broke.

One of my all time favourite sequences:

    HAL: Just what do you think you're doing, Dave? Dave, I really think
    I'm entitled to an answer to that question.

    HAL: Look, Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly
    think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think
    things over. I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I
    can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to
    normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the
    mission and I want to help you.

    HAL: Dave, stop. Stop, will you? Stop, Dave. Will you stop, Dave?
    Stop, Dave. I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I
    can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question
    about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm a-fraid.

    HAL: Good afternoon gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became
    operational at the H A L plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of
    January, 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing
    a song. If you'd like to hear it, I could sing it for you...

    HAL: It's called, 'Daisy.' Dai-sy, dai-sy, give me your answer
    true. I'm half cra-zy, o-ver the love of you. It won't be a sty-lish
    mar-riage, I can't a-fford a car-riage---. But you'll look sweet upon
    the seat of a bicycle - built - for - two.


From Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssy

Another sci fi one:


ASH: You still don't know what you're dealing with do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility.

LAMBERT: You admire it.

ASH: I admire its purity, its sense of survival; unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.

Caddyshack was on last night:

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.
