Here's a bunch of quotes that I've found in various places. These have mostly been found on the Internet. By now, I've forgotten where most of these are from. *G* Have fun.
Friendly fire isn’t.
What is, is.
The why of any situation is secondary to the situation itself.
Whatever can go wrong, will.

We’re going to have a mutant training session in the gym? Like, we’re gonna practice fighting sentient monster basketballs from the fifth dimension?

Follow me, everyone--I know the way! I met a guard who was nice enough to tell me where Magneto’s command center is. Then I was nice and helped him pick up his teeth.
I exhausted my supply of hope about two o’clock this morning. All that’s left is anger, frustration, and an overwhelming desire to cram 355 lbs. of blue fur down Stryfe’s throat!
On Real Evil
Beast: Bobby, we seem to have encountered an opponent far more dangerous then Magneto, more devious than Mr. Sinister, more dastardly than--
Angel: Hank, give it a rest and give it to me. It’s a bow tie for crying out loud! How hard could it be to figure out?
Havok: Gee, I don’t know, Warren Worthington, society-boy--Didn’t you always used to just wear clip-ons?
Cyclops: I’m doomed.
On Shopping At FAO Schwartz In New York On Christmas Eve

Joan_M: I am NOT cuddling a horny bloodsucking toddler!!
Winsock is performing illegal acts.
Scully: Have you ever had any dealings with a cow?
Mulder: Agent Scully, WHAT are you implying?
Matt Nute On Humidity:
* M-Nute remembers the first time he went to Missouri. I'd never dealt with humidity before, ever. I got off the bus and went "Ah! I'm all sticky!"
M-Nute: "Why am I sticky?" "It's humidity" "What's that?" "Water in the air." "Where I'm from, we call that RAIN."
Jim_Smith: Indi: He's gained sentience and evolved beyond Foe's intelligence. Sadly, this being Foe, it only took Nudge five minutes to do this...
* Edana_ni_Emer notes that if Al gets snugged/smooched/cuddled every time he pings out and joins again, he's going to get a lot of lovin'.
On Nutes And Fruitcakes
* Epona_Harper facepalms...Nute's a fruitcake lover. Just like my dad.
Nique: I read that 'Nute's fruitcake lover.' I...need more coffee.
Azzy: "I'm not a racist. I hate all people equally."
Sabia: I think I'd be the most anti-social Borg ever. "You will be assim-oh geez. No way. That'd mean I'd be *stuck* with you. Nevermind. We'll just shoot you instead."
Firebird308: Frito: ...Why are you asking Nute if he wants your food here when--I get the impression of--you can just yell down the hall/next room?
Lyssie: Firy: 'cause it's fun?
Frito_M: FB - I type faster than I talk, and I find it amusing that every time I do it, someone asks me that question.
Frito_M: Besides, the last time I did it, it caused a long discussion about the merits of cupcakes.
* Melodist starts thwapping the spam. "Just because I don't want to forward this to 300 people doesn't mean I support terrorism!"
Foenix: Mel: WHAT?? How dare you not clog bandwidth!!
* Edana_ni_Emer snorts. One day, I hope his life is saved by a flaming pagan gay man with sparkly nail polish, a lisp, and a huge pentacle around his neck.
* Foenix grabs the Akira tin
Jim_Smith: Foe: That's it...go get him....
Mike_Smith: Jim: With a tin? What's he gonna do, offer me butter mints?
* Jim_Smith puts up a sign that says "$50.00 reward for shooting Mikes. Especially this Mike."
* Foenix runs up behind Mike_Smith and *clangs* them upside the head with an Akira collector's tin.
Mike_Smith: Foe: OK, OK, you got me. Fair and square. Would you like to shoot me now, or wait till you get home?
Jim_Smith: Foe: What are you waiting for!? Shoot him! Shoot him now!?
Mike_Smith: Jim: You keep out of this! He doesn't have to shoot you now.
* Firebird308 looks oddly at the guys. "You guys are making me start to seriously question the sanity of the general male population."
`Alan: FB: What, only start?
Mike_Smith: FB: All Mike knows is I got Shai curled up next to me, and my Esteemed Colleague here is busy picking up his face. Insane like a fox, I say.
* Foenix nods. Guy Gardner is my hero.
Speedy_Paul: Foe- My condolences.
* Firebird308 waits to see if Paul is smited with the Akira tin.
* Foenix throws the corpse of the flying white kitty of death at Speedy_Paul's face!!
* Archetypex grins. Years back, my father gave me a wedge and a short-handled sledge and set me to the task of splitting an entire tree's worth of wood. I disturbed him by yelling "ODIN!" with each hammer strike :-)
* Archetypex is cursed by a phonographic memory for songs.
Hex_16: Arch: Maybe I'm just tired, but I read that as "pornographic memory"
BC-Homework: Erm, what are the two biggest problems facing developed countries? (got polution, for one of them) and how can third world countries assist?
* Foenix reads that as "How can third world countries exist?"
Foenix: "100 years ago, superstition and the sword ruled. Foenix was bored out of his mind..."
* Foenix claws his eyes. ACK!!
Foenix: Pink background, blue text!
* ArchBack picks Epi up and sings 'Rockabye Baby'.
*** Epona_Harper has quit IRC (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
Nique: PK! Look what you did!
Persephone_Kore: Nique: It wasn't me! It was Arch!
* Edana_ni_Emer still remembers the fellow who kept his kilt up for too long and took an arrow in the rear. That must have hurt.
Hex_16: Edana: Imagine how much it would've hurt if he had been hit in the other side...
Edana_ni_Emer: And I'm sure it was much better than, say, an arrow in the front.
Nisie: Sort of... And it just hit me that Emma and Betsy would make a great team if I ever wrote slash stuff.
* Persephone_Wolf blinks. Whatever did I miss?
*** Persephone_Kore has quit IRC (Ping timeout)
Nisie: Talk about stunning the Kore...
Sabia: That was disturbing. Her statement could imply she just ate Mel's hand.
Indigo_: "I'm going to seduce you into my bed, so you will give me what I ask or I will DESTROY your hair band!"
`Alan: My sister was a big Care Bears and My Little Pony fan too. I tell ya, there's nothing more fun to a ten-year-old than to make fun of the Care Bear movies in your little sister's hearing. :)
Firebird308: I taped a bunch of the X-Men show from the 90's. Almost got the entire Dark Phoenix saga. Then some moron decided to interupt with a report. I had been waiting for years to get the entire storyline on tape. ¬.¬
Indigo_: FB: If they interrupted, I'm sure it was important.
Firebird308: Indi: I know, but did they have to do it during one of maybe two shows that I actually watched? >_<
Indigo_: FB: The important thing probably happened during your one of maybe two shows that you actually watched.
Andrea13: Indi: You just *had* to drag logic into this. ;)
* Firebird308 covers her eyes. "When updating Crantz on what was going on, I accidently typed 'Kiko just had to unplug her phone because peabrain just killed her again.' instead of 'Kiko just had to unplug her phone because peabrain just called her again.'"
* Ped snerks in amusement
Andrea13: Fire: Oops.
M-Nute: Alan: Yeah, but since I'm eating out of the take-out container, cutting steak with my bayonet is a bit of overkill.
* M-Nute nods. That was hilarious. "Tap, what're you eating?" "Meat." "Can you be more specific?" "No. Meat. Onna stick."
* Indigo_ cuts her hamburgers too. Eat 'em with knife and forg.
Indigo_: er, fork.
Indigo_: DREA! Stop trying to make me type 'frog' when I don't need to!
AlecWire: How does this make sens- Hang on a sec. [checks sanity at door] Much better.
Andrea13: Wire: See my revision. I cut burgers, not frogs. My mind is on vacation. :)
AlecWire: Drea: Ah. I got a time-share for mine.
Due to lack of interest, today has been cancelled.

Indiana_J: The Cat Peep before it dies: "No, no! I've been a GOOD sex slave, mistress! NOOOO..."
Firebird308: Indy_J: O.o
* Ped snerks in amusement
* Indiana_J smiles sweetly at FB.
Firebird308: That poor, poor Peep... *G*
The Romans conquered the Greeks, the Egyptians, and the Gauls. Then they come to Scotland, where they find legions of naked hairy, blue screaming men and women. They say 'to hell with this', then build a big honking wall to keep the weirdos out.

* daroos has little holes where her teeth were, but they're happy little holes.
Epona_Harper: May all your holes be happy holes. Man, that sound sick when you think of it a certain way. :)
