    not from TV but from a movie, it was a gary shandling movie (yes, gary shandling) and it had ben kingsley telling off the fat guy from roseanne 'you appear to be intelligent but the effect is spoiled when you open your mouth', i love it.

    id watch gandhi after that and have ben recite it in my head with an indian accent.

    I manage to work the Father Jack Hackett quote in conversation every time I've had more than 3 beers. In fact, I manage to work a lot of his quotes into my conversations then, especially the one where he points at someone and says "GOBSHITE!"

    "My God newbie, when everyone else went to get their smarts you just walked down to the dumb-dumb store, got a cart and (starts motions of pulling things of a shelf) just kept on loading her up"

    What I love about his put downs is how he builds them up. They're never quick one liners but always something that builds up and then bitch slaps you!

    The Drew Carey Show; Drew (talking about some random scheme he intended on doing): "...but first I need a woman. Mimi! You're close enough."

    So true, Dr. Cox singlehandedly makes Scrubs one of the best shows ever.

    true too true.

    They need more Red Dwarf quotes...

    Lister(to Rimmer): You're really mean with money. You're a tremendous physical coward. You once spent an afternoon on the Samaritan's switchboard and four people commited suicide. Your middle name is Judas but you tell everyone that it's Jonathan. You sign all your official letters 'Arnold Rimmer BSc' and the BSc stands for 'Bronze Swimming Certificate'. You're a cheating, weasley, low-life scumbucket with all the charm and social grace of a pubic louse.


    Cat: There's one thing you should know. Last time we met I was wearing a cute little black number with peach trim and gold spangles, and although it looks like I'm wearing the same outfit today, it is in fact an entirely different cute little black number, with completely different gold spangles!
    Kryten: That was an important statement, sir, and it needed to be made. However, might I suggest that the rest of this discourse be conducted by those with brains larger than a grape?

    I'm sure Draven will chime in here; but anything from Blackadder...

    Percy: " I must say, Edmund, it was jolly nice of you to ask me to share your breakfast before the rigours of the day begin."

    Blackadder: "Well, it is said, Percy, that civilised man seeks out good and intelligent company, so that, through learned discourse, he may rise above the savage and closer to God."

    Percy: "Yes, I've heard that."

    Blackadder: "Personally, however, I like to start the day with a total dickhead, to remind me I'm best... "

    From Rescue me:
    Chick that dates Tommy's daughter's ex boyfriend in reference to the boyfriend:"He's so dreamy, he is like John Lennon"

    Tommy:"Where's Mark David Chapman when you need him?"

    From Dennis Leary's Roast
    "A baker said he found an image of the Virgin Mary in a muffin. Its a muffin, you asshole!"

    Nip tuck
    Christian in response to Kimber coming onto him:"Why would I want to stick my **** into that cesspool of a ****** of yours?"

    Look, we all have something to bring to this discussion. But I think from now on the thing you should bring is silence.

    Ahh, one of my favourites. Along with
    Blackadder: "Baldrick, your brain reminds me of the infamous 6 headed man-eating haddock fishbeast of Aberdeen."
    Baldrick: "In what way, My Lord?"
    Blackadder: "It doesn't exist."
