Did you see Lost last week? If you did, were you laughing out loud when Sawyer welcomed Faraday into his home. I nearly fell off the couch,

With that line of dialogue, Sawyer added to the very elite list of my favorite pop culture quotes of all time. I'm not talking about your basic "Frankly Scarlet..." or " "Say hello to my little friend" quotes. I'm talking about the obscure ones...the hilarious ones. The ones that put an instant smile on your face as soon as you remember them. Gems like "What the hell is an aluminum falcon" or "The snozberries taste like snozberry".

So, as a fun little exercise, can you list some of your favorite obscure quotes? Could be from movies, tv, cartoons, anything. I'll give you some of mine as examples.

What, no female quotes? How about:

"And guns! More guns, bigger guns!"
It was the only redeeming line from a weak Battlestar Galactica episode that became sort of a cult thing with my friends for a while. I think the look on James Callis's face is probably what makes this quote, but I've found use for it.

"Its too bad she won't live, but then again who does?"
Probably the most haunting line from Blade Runner that gets stuck in my head, just by itself sometimes. I guess there's nothing really funny about it, but I hold it pretty dear.

"Oh you young people. It's all tea and muffins and excitement in your world I expect."
The old mask saleslady in Mirrormask

"We're just testing a theory Howard has about Vocal Reverberation Under Spinal Pressure. "

from What's up, Doc?

Most of the movie cracks me up, but I love this scene which takes place under the table at a conference.

Definitely some great ones. Love Witch Hazel and What's Up Doc. Blade Runner for a dark quote, and Wag the Dog for its simplicity. And never woulda expected to see a cannonball run quote...nice!

Any more?

My favorite are Booger quotes:
