Quotes needed! Whedonesque needs your help (again). The quotes section that appears in the top right hand side of the page needs to get updated with Dollhouse dialogue. So please do post your favourite lines from the first twelve episodes.

"We're not just humans anymore. We're not multiple personalities. We're many personalities. And one of my personalities happens to be a multiple personality. But that doesn't make me a multiple personality. I'm looking for a little nuance here."
"People were fighting on me."
"I played a bad hand very well. There is a distinction." - Adelle

"You know what I like? Brown sauce. What's it made of? Science doesn't know." - Topher

"Oh, my God! I find lentils completely incomprehensible." - Adelle

We're not bluffing. I'm bluffing. But the rest of us, we mean business!
"I had three brothers - none of them democrates" - Echo
"We're pimps and killers. But in a philanthropic way." - Boyd
"They're a little bit bison"
"If you have everything, you want something else. Something more extreme. Something more specific... Something perfect." - Paul Ballard
I think the line that is often repeated by the dolls is "I try to be my best" that I love. Also, something Echo repeated I think was "I am not broken"
"Let me show you my drawer of inappropriate starches." - Topher
My personal favorite is "Good luck with the whole 'God' thing." - Topher

I also like "I have something she needs", though I am not sure if that is the exact quote.

"Yes, there's indignation enough for everyone to have seconds." -Adelle

"I've been here long enough to know that you like to tell yourself that what we do helps people. Let Echo help this girl." - Boyd
Topher: Look at Echo, not a care in the world. She's living the dream.
Boyd: Whose dream?
Topher: Who's next?

We should update the image banner too. A nice shot of Tahmoh can't hurt.
(Thanks, b!X - that inappropriate starch line's too good to get wrong.

Wish I had my copies of the actual shows here at the office. *grumbles*

*heads off to hulu*)
Topher: I think we have a situation. The kind you need to shoot at.
He's like soylent green. He's people.
worldwidestudios If we're talking banner changes, I think its fair to say Felicia might deserve a shot before Tahmoh. To date, I think she's got as many projects with The Purple One as anyone (except our boy Nate of course).
"I can't catch a spy in my pajamas."

"I mean, you were no fun as Echoís handler, and now you get to be twice as no fun as Head of Security."

"Carrots! Medicinal carrots! Personal use medicinal carrots that were here when I moved in! I'm holding it for a friend!"

"What the hell was that?! Was that some kind of joy buzzer stun gun? I mean, officially I deplore violence, but that was totally worth the loss of karma points!"

"We're not just humans anymore. We're not multiple personalities. We're many personalities. Uh... one of my personalities happens to be a multiple personality, but that doesn't make me a multiple personality. I'm looking for a little nuance here."

"Why would Alpha need a background singer? Unless he was starting an evil band... nope, not it."
Officially I deplore violence, but that was totally worth the loss of karma points!

I gotta go. Something... came up.

People are mostly crap.

I start over, I'm gonna be Doris Freakin' Day.
I posted a quote once on twitter and can't find it. Anyway, my 2nd fave:

Whiskey / Claire: "I know who I am".
(The Gun) is so heavy, it makes my arm tired.

I could eat that word.
"It did not lack the poetry." - Adelle

"I donít think I got any sugar left." - Mellie/November

"Well, Iím sure Iím in need of some serious moral spankitude, but, uh, guess whoís not qualified to be my rabbi." - Mynor
"My talents go beyond asking whether he wants chocolate chip or oatmeal... which I do very well, thank you." -Ivy

"I'm keeping my sexy business woman shoes." -Roger

"Catherine, mistress of the dark observations." -Roger

"Yes, in fact, if I were one of your clients I would order one of you as a spare for when you're in the shop." -Roger

"I just want you to appreciate how awesome I'm going to be when I deliver." -Spy Sierra

"Then there's that Janitorial Staff..." -Topher

"I slept with her. I should have known." -Paul

"I'm giving you an out. You can walk out that door." "I'm pretty sure I can't even unlock it." -Paul & Mellie

"I can help you." "Why would you want to?" "Why wouldn't I??" "Did I just lose an argument to a Doll??" -Echo & Topher

"If it hadn't been for me, there'd still be a security breach. You'd think the Security Head would recognize that." -Topher

"I make a cheerleader. They make a cheerleader that shoots people. Or an assassin that does cheers." -Topher

"You should go out, get drunk & beat your chest." -Topher to Boyd

"Two guys checking it out. Nothing queenie. And then the other one forgets." -Interview from MotS

"Eat it, F Bitch I." "This place could fit in my guest's bathroom." -Joel Mynor

"You put the boy doll on top of the girl doll and we learn about urges." -Joel Mynor

"Is this a porn man?" -Rebecca Mynor

"My husband does porn!" -Rebecca Mynor

"We just bought this house. You didn't just break in to impress me?" -Rebecca Mynor

"You're out of hand cream again." -Paul

"They're out there. Dolls." -Interview from MotS

As far as the banner goes, theres two of Fray, two of Smile Time angel etc.

Why not get rid of the doubles and put in some Dollhouse characters.
"What you don't know won't hurt you", "I can do anything" and "Just let me sleep for a little while". Yes technically it's cheating but I do love the song.
"Have you ever tried to clean an actual slate? You'll always see what was on it before." - Caroline

I like that one, as it was one of the first sentences in the first episode and I realized much later, what it was refering to ...
"Now wash your hands....and your shoes" - Paul
"I am your superior"
"In every way."


"We don't have an engagement."
"We have a mission."


"Sorry Agent Ballard, you don't get the girl."


Whatever Caroline said in "Needs" about Adelle not being as important as she thinks she is.


"Sometimes it is about the pain."
@Progressive_Stupidity, re: "As far as the banner goes, theres two of Fray, two of Smile Time angel etc."

That graphic will repeat endlessly depending on the size of your browser window ...

"What is this? What am I doing sitting here, and standing over there?"

"Sometimes when I go on stairs that don't have risers I get this feeling, this awful sensation, that's somethings going reach out and grab my ankle, like a claw or a tentacle!"
p.s. - you have to have the adorabubble one, just for moi! xx

p.p.s - that's not a quote, I know, I could be Joss!
This was a great idea, Simon. Exactly what I needed to feel good being a fan. Thank you!

I can't believe how many awesome lines there were in this season. I heard tons when re-watching on Hulu, and that was only for 6-11! Need to watch the ones from iTunes to gather more. :D
What - no "man reaction" quotes? I know they are there, I just don't remember exact verbiage. I like the "pimps and killers" one myself.

"Porn!!"

[ edited by falina on 2009-05-22 22:55 ]
"For a little while"
"Man-Friend"
"Man-Reaction"

"The first thing you gotta ask is 'Are they running to something or are they running from something?' The answer is always both."

Boyd: Everything is going to be alright. /// Echo: Now that you're here. /// Boyd: Do you trust me? /// Echo: With my life.

"I'm not broken"

"If she were any more relaxed, she'd be ooze"

"Relax, Mountain Man. Iíve been reading the squigglies long enough to discern the diff between excitement and 'Sweet mother, Iím gonna die.'"

"You make people different. You can make me help"

"Did I just lose an argument to a doll"

"You can fire me, but bitch don't think you can take me"

"I played a very bad hand very well. There is a distinction"

"No, but-- eat it, F-Bitch-I- she was beautiful and she knew it and she loved me."

"They're called breasts, and yes they're exceptional." - Echo
"Actions have consequences. What if they didn't?" - Adelle
"He needs closure. And we are the experts at giving people what they need, aren't we?" - Adelle
Already posted, but I wanna second it.

"Yeah, people are mostly crap."

Really anything Lubov is gold. I miss Lubov.

Oh, and, "It's a small world, right? I went to grade school with Jenna Elfman."
"Can't. Shouldn't. Did." - Topher
"Maybe she's broken. You figure? She's broken?" - Bicks
"Apples. Cantaloupe. Kiwis. Mango. Mayonnaise." - Mike
"Meanwhile, we suffer from unsightly visibility." -Alpha

"Do you trust me?"
"With my life."
Echo-Boyd
"We're not anything. We're not anybody, because we're everybody." Echo/Omega

"Why did you think it was so important for meu to hate you? I think that's strange". Dr Saunders

"Your unbearable truth lady. You're not as important as you think you are! Next one goes right where your heart should have been. Now show us out". Echo

"I just wanted to make a difference." Echo

"Blue skies". Taffy
What was the alien quote from Mike?

"Catch Guild Fever!"

Oh, wait. Crossing meta-verses with verses are explode-worthy.
I want to see Eliza in the banner, pleaaaaaaaase :D
"Is this the best date ever or what?" guy-in-episode-2-whose-name-I-do-not-remember
Echo: "We're not gods!"
Alpha: "Fine, Ubermensch. Nietzsche predicted our rise. Perfected, objective, something new."
Echo: "Right, new superior people, with a little German thrown in. What could possibly go wrong?"

and the medicinal carrots line, which others have rightly suggested.
"What, just because we can move forward, we must? This is the same expansionist thinking that lead to the Trail of Tears, man." "Carrots!"
"Listen to me carefully. I've got a huge phalanx of machines that go 'PING!'" - Topher

"They're called breasts, and yes, they are exceptional. You mention that, when you blog about this later." - Echo

"You wanna speak English, I'm kinda bleeding to death here." - Boyd

"I am not a piece of meat! I have a heart." - Paul

"Eh. Did I just lose an argument to a doll?" - Topher

"Shouldn't we help?" "Yeah. I helped when I imprinted her with Kung Fu skills, but be my guest." - Ivy & Topher

"Margaret, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you. You're dead." - Adelle

"Someone's trying to kill Rayna, and to my utter astonishment it isn't me." - Biz

"Of course. If it'd been a snake... Please pretend I didn't say that." - Claire

"Good morning. We're having banana pancakes for breakfast today." "I like pancakes." "We're all gonna die." - Attendant, Tango, & Victor

"You know what I think? I think that once we die out. A couple hundred years? Earth is going to have a People Day. To remember us. One day a year she is gonna laugh and laugh and shake our bones." - Stephen/Alpha

"Why did you hit me in the head with a pipe?" "It was handy?" - Alpha & Omega

"What am I doing sitting here, and standing over there?" - Echo in Wendy

"Why did you decide it was so important for me to hate you?" - Claire
"Actions have consequences."
"What if they didn't?"
"Why is there a tall, morally judgmental man in my imprint room?" - Topher
Some of my favorites have already been posted above, but here are some more (probably repeating a few here):

"I tried to burn you alive, who does that?" - Dominic

"I played a very bad hand very well. There's a distinction." - Adelle

"I am your superior!" - Adelle
"In every way...go check." - Topher

"Your brain rocks!" - Topher

"You can fire me, but bitch don't think you can take me!" - Echo

"You know what I like? Brown sauce. Whatís it made of? Science doesnít know." - Topher
"Itís made of brown." - Adelle
"BrownÖ mined from the earth by the hardscrabble brown miners of North Brownterton." - Topher

"I'm smarter than everyone in this room! But less scary." - Topher

"If your child starts talking for the first time, you feel proud. If your dog does, you freak the hell out." - Dominic

"I like pancakes." - Topher
"We're all gonna die." - Victor

"It's possible one good sneeze could bring on a seizure." - Dr. Saunders
"Or even worse, a sneezure." - Topher

"They're called breasts, and yes, they are exceptional. Mention that when you blog about this later." - Echo

"Do you trust me?" - Echo
"What?" - Boyd
"Do you trust me?" - Echo
"...With my life." - Boyd

"I wanna do everything. Is that so much to ask?" - Caroline

Echo: "Something fell on me."
Topher: "I bet it was something great."
All my favorites have been said. And there are several.

But, I do want to add a vote for "Have you ever tried to clean an actual slate? You'll always see what was on it before."

and the "starches" line.
"Whose hands are these? Whose body am I in?"
"Four brothers. None of them Democrats" - Echo (correcting the quote that bubblecat posted a ways up-thread)

Got some more new ones:
"You're very astute, professor. It's a good thing this is a no-kill job." - Echo
"This isn't a lone gunman. This is a conspiracy. A gigantic, multi-pronged conspiracy." - Topher
"That's not - uh unh - That didn't happen. How do I know that didn't happen? Because that CAN'T happen!" - Topher
"Itís nothing personalóhis thing with you. If I were in charge, heíd be an ass with me, too, soÖ Want to grab a drink after this?" - Vitas
"Itís the adrenaline. It makes me forget my protocols and ďqĒs." - Topher
Why did you make me hate you? Not sure on the exact wording, but that was the strongest scene so far.
You guys said a lot of the best ones already. Reading this thread makes me remember both how great this show is, and how ridiculous the "but it isn't funny!" worrying was.

"Oh my God! You guys are gonna get married and have a bunch of scowly babies!"

"What a Rick."

"That was so... neighborly."

"I live to serve lunch."

"Recycled urine? Kidding... it's not fully recycled yet. I also have POM."

There are a ton more good ones I'm forgetting the wording on...

I'm surprised no one has said:
"Do you want a treatment"
because I plan to use that on people who are needing a time-out (but they won't know what I mean).

My favorite so far is: "Officially I deplore violence, but that was totally worth the loss of karma points!"

But I also really like: "Why is there a a tall morally judgemental man in my imprint room ... besides Boyd?"
"I'm ready to rinse and spit."
"Now, do what I say... or I will blow your brain out."

[ edited by silent knight on 2009-05-23 00:04 ]
Carrots! Medicinal carrots! Personal use...medicinal carrots that were here when I got here and I'm holding them for a friend.

Oops, already said. Well, that's my fave line, anyway. So consider it a vote :)

[ edited by ShanshuBugaboo on 2009-05-23 00:23 ]
"I cant catch a spy in my pajamas."
Back with more (most of them taken from the TWOP Forums):
"Do that again and I will scold you." - Echo/Eleanor Penn
"Shouldn't there be a default imprint to ninja skills or whatever?" - Boyd
"Is this where you dress me up and use me as bait? 'Cause those movies never end well." - Mellie
"You're gonna be Anton Lubov." - Paul
"So soft. Like a kitty." - Dominic
"If you're done molesting the furniture, can we get these guys?" - Mellie

[ edited by DigificWriter on 2009-05-23 00:31 ]
Just to make sure...

"I have 38 brains, and none of them believe you can sell yourself into slavery.", Echo from Omega

"What a Rick!", Paul talking to Mellie/November about one of her boyfriends

"The Dollhouse deals in fantasy. That is their business, but that is not their purpose.", Echo in "Man on the Street."
Alpha as Stephen Kepler quotes:

"Carrots! Uh, medicinal carrots. Personal use for medicinal carrots that were here when I moved in, and I'm holding it for a friend."

"Recycled urine? I'm kidding. It's not fully recycled. I'm tinkering with that. I also have Pom."

"I'm not comfortable having people in my home that aren't delivering me Thai food.
Riding up, riding up! I'm getting a wedgie."

"This is - I'm not comfortable. My arms are chilly."

"Oh, change is good. Go change. Yes we can! You know, this cotton - it's organic. I'm pretty sure. That's a plus."

"I'm going to die. I'm going to die in pajamas."

"I could, if this guy wasn't a paranoid freak. There's like a thrillion layers of passwords on here. This isn't company stuff. This is his own personal mindfield. I need a different computer."
"Well. Did not maintain control of that situation." -Boyd

And I second the November quote about "the furniture."
The Dominic one that's something like "I'm sorry I tried to kill you. Who DOES that?"
"We got drugged; we behaved like idiot children. It happens. It's over."
Aaand I have nothing.

I could only really remember the medicinal carrots one. XD

But all these quotes are pretty awesomes. :D
"Can we play with the sleepies?" -Sierra
"I am... very British"

"I could eat that word. Or a crisp."

"Ooh, guns! Can I have one?"

"I live to serve lunch"

"I think the universe might collapse under the weight of that one"

"Porn!"

A gimme, I know, but: "Did I fall asleep?"
Oh, and, surprised no-one's posted this yet: "And the new moon has made her virgin again"
Just re-watched Stage Fright last night...

"Okay, stop! Stop! Who's eating a mint? Somebody is eating a mint!" - Rayna

"You are having a breakdown. Not a shave-your-head, flash-your-junk wacky phase. You are truly unwell." - Echo/Jordan
Whiskey/Dr Saunders quotes:

"Why hire a new phsyician, when you can imprint the broken doll."

"But why did you descide it was so important for me to hate you."

"I think that's strange."

"I know who I am."

[ edited by RavenU on 2009-05-23 02:31 ]
''Maybe there'll be cake.''

:D
So many favorites already listed, and when I wondered why no one had mentioned others, I scrolled down and there they were. Except for these ones.

"I am old friend from Navy... uh... friend from Old Navy."

And also the one with Adelle's dead friend talking about how in Echo's body she's "pointing straight up to the ceiling," or some such. Does anyone remember the actual words? Hmm.
"I thought you said you were good with people?" "I misspoke. I'm good at people."

"A broadhead arrow does more damage coming out." "I'll remember that next time I'm being bow-hunted."

"Margaret was nothing like mother! ... Your mother."

"I looked really cute in that shirt, too. Stupid bitch."

"I remember! It still smells like burnt hair in here."

"You're sitting in some messed up dentist's chair, letting a guy who talks to himself attach wires to your head -- which, incidentally, is MY head!"
"Iím not fooling. Heís not kidding. Weíre not bluffing! Iím bluffing. But the rest of us. We mean business." -Alpha

"Sure, now your experts. Four hours ago you were discussing your love for applesauce." -Dominic
Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet:

"I may not know who I am, but at least I know who I'm not... I'm not your girlfriend."
Pretty much anything that comes out of Alan Tudyk's mouth

do not try to open a locked pod, all hell will break loose my tall man.


down.... that hall-way. Wait. oh no that's right.

aaaand

sorry agent ballard, you don't get the girl.
That last one is Boyd, however, not Alpha. ;)
"People were fighting on me!"
Definitely "There are three flowers in a vase".
Ignore this post. Added: "I may not know who I am, but I at least know who I'm not!" to the pot, but just realized it was already posted and I'm too tired to figure out how to delete the post. My appologies.

[ edited by Elphaba on 2009-05-23 04:22 ]
"You poisoned me and tried to shoot me with arrows!" Echo/Janey, "The Target"

"I have a message for you from inside the Dollhouse". Mellie, "Needs"

Ronald_SF, really you rock! how could I not remember that one? It was stuck in my head for days.

That's ok, Elphaba. There are many repeated quotes actually. And I think there's no way to delete it, only the mods can delete it.

With or without my undies?
"Wow... Say, you got a bathroom?" Echo/Crystal, "Omega"
"I heart my porn, but this is cool!"
Reading these reminds me how great this show really is. Can't wait to rewatch the entire season!

Oh and "There are three flowers in a vase. The third flower is green." totally has to be in there. Also, Echo on the banner would be shiny.

[ edited by wonderflonium on 2009-05-23 06:11 ]
You're not real!
I understand Hell now.
Would you like a treatment?



Do you trust me?
If I could make a woman, I'd make you.
"Sweetie, you're on Taffy Standard Time now." - Taffy/Echo
"So I guess Topher can make friends." - Boyd
Baby... meet yourself! - Alpha
Repeat votes for:

"Iím not fooling. Heís not kidding. Weíre not bluffing! Iím bluffing. But the rest of us. We mean business."
"Carrots! Medicinal Carrots!"
"Porn!"
"I like pancakes"
"We're pimps and killers, but in a philanthropic way"
"They're a little bit bison."

"Do you trust me?"
"My whole life isn't real". - Paul Ballard
"Nothing is what it appears to be." - Adelle
"I wanna do everything. Is that so much to ask?" - Caroline
"I'm not broken." - Echo
I'm going to reiterate:

My whole life isn't real.
Fully supporting any of the Topher/Adelle dialogue from Echoes, particularly:

"I find lentils completely incomprehensible."

"Ooh, I could eat that word. Or a crisp."

"You haven't seen my drawer of inappropriate starches?"
I love :

Topher: There is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

(I don't know why know, it just sounds cool)

and:

Ivy: Shouldn't we help?

Topher: Yeah. I helped when I imprinted her with kung fu skills. Be my guest.
Topher:'Man reaction'

Topher:'There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.'

Topher:'Doctor Saunders! How nice of you to annoy me.'

Victor (as Lubov)'Yeah, people are mostly crap.'

Boyd:'They're not bison, Topher' Topher:'They're a little bit bison'

Saunders: 'One good sneeze could bring on a seizure.'
Topher: 'Or even worse, a sneezure.'

Topher: 'Brown...mined from the earth by the hard scrabble brown miners of north Brownderton!'

DeWitt: 'I find lentils completely incomprehensible. '
Here's new one:

She's not a girl, she's not even a person... just an empty hat, until you stuff a rabbit in it. - Boyd
Looking, looking, can't find it yet, but it's something like

You snort horse once, don't like it, go back to your organic tea and have a nice life; I do it once, Whew! I'm doin' two bags a day for twenty years!

So bein' a doll, you do whatever, and you don't gotta remember nothin', or study, or pay rent, and you just party with rich people all the time? Where's the dotted line?

Topher: 'Everybody wants to be righteous when they can afford it'
Didn't read the thread and hope this hasn't been covered yet. No wait; I hope it HAS.

What about Dollhouse (and other Whedon) characters in the Polaroids?? With so many from which to choose, it seems awkward and an odd choice to have duplicates of those already there.
Quick search shows this hasn't been done yet.

"That's it, shoulder to the wheel! Prove you're not just an echo."
-Richard (Episode 2)

Much as I disliked a lot of that episode, I love that line.
"They're gonna throw the Kindle at you!"
So do characters quoting other works count? 'Cause when Topher said, "There's nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so." he was quoting Hamlet.
"Are you OK?"
"Uh, yeah, I kick ass."
Question: are there Dr Horrible quotes? I haven't noticed any...
There are, Archduke Sebassis. We had a thread like this a while ago for them.

joni: How about "There's nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so, man-friend", then?
"Would you like a treatment?"

I know it did not make it to the acutual episode that aired but I still love this quote:
"From 1 to Natural Born Killers?"
Oh, wait my quote was wrong is was:
"On a scale of 1 to Natural Born Killers?"
Mr. Dominic is exhibiting erratic behavior!
"Hang on. Hang on. I have another call. I have another ca-- I have a better call." - Topher
"In a world where all men are equal until proven dead..." -Topher

(I forgot the rest of the quote but it works fine on its own.)
"You are a talking cucumber"

"That wasn't quiet." "Wasn't meant to be."
@Rachelkachel: That works for me. :D
I officially declare this thread as a Great Read[tm]. Should really link to it anytime someone says that Dollhouse was almost never witty or funny, as the evidence is right here to be seen by all.

Anyway, sorry to interrupt, please resume posting the funny and thoughtfull :)
As much as I love all the funny from Dollhouse (and I DO!), I agree with Archduke.....Dr. Horrible quotes and pictures are also required!
Wading in here. I think all of my favorite lines have been posted already, but I'm gonna throw in votes for the "scowly babies" line. And "Porn!" And the "medicinal carrots" freak out perfection of Alan Tudyk.

We should definitely have an updated banner, including a Polaroid of Eliza, and one of Dr. Horrible!
"Yeah...it ain't oak, but...it's on its way to wood. Are we done...?" - Topher
Yeah I agree with Kasadilla, we really need to start rockin' an Echo and Doc H up top, maybe even throw in snap of Season Eight Buffy for good merit.
"Ramirez pretends to be jaded, but she's got a secret stash of bodice-rippers in the van." - Victor
"Somebody put her tiny little thinking cap on." - Topher
All of these have been mentioned, but in case decisions are made partly on the basis of how many people want them, I'll add my favorites (leaving out the most obvious; "Did I fall asleep?" "For a little while", "Do you want a treatment or, "It's time for your treatment".)

>I'm. Not. Broken - Echo
>I have thirty-eight brains, and none of them believe you can sell yourself into slavery. - Echo
>We're pimps and killers. But in a philanthropic way. - Boyd
>Good Luck with the whole 'God" thing. - Topher
>Carrots! Medicinal carrots! For personal use. - Stephen/Alpha
>This house will fall. - Ballard
>I mean, officially I deplore violence, but that was totally worth the loss of karma points. - Topher
>Meanwhile, we suffer from unsightly visibility. - Alpha
>My whole life isn't real. - Ballard
>Why is there a tall, morally judgmental man in my imprint room? Other than Boyd. - Topher
>Baby, meet yourself. - Alpha
>I'm smarter that everyone in this room. But less scary. - Topher.
>If your child starts talking for the first time, you feel proud. If your dog does, you freak the hell out. - Dominic
>I'm not fooling. He's not kidding. We're not bluffing! Well, I'm bluffing, but the rest of us mean business. - Alpha
>You're sitting in some messed up dentist's chair, letting a guy who talks to himself attach wires to your head. Which incidentally is my head. - Echo
>I'm not comfortable having people in my home who aren't delivering me Thai food. - Alpha
I don't think any of these are here:

"Hence the exuberant price tag."

"Russia Georgia not sweet home Georgia."

"God didnít make me see again so that I could just watch."

"Being what? Sarcastic? Unfeeling? British?" (my favourite Adelle quote except for "Maybe thereíll be cake.")

"Nice adjective, excellent noun."

"Youíre in a lair! An evil lair!"

And to reiterate one of my favourite Mellie lines:

"I donít think Iíve got any sugar left."
Stuff a rabbit in it.

Are you going to be just an echo?
I need a soupÁon of rage, not a whole tasting menu.
Oh is that what he says? I always thought it was "a 'soup's on' of rage". Hah.
Topher's a foodie, they keep dropping those little hints in.
"Ösandwiches donít give you a run when you try to eat them. They just lay there waiting for mustard."
"I believe the system's flawed, maybe irreparably. But not for the same reasons you do." - Dr. Saunders
A tide is rising. Until we learn how to turn it back, we pile up the sandbags. Together.

Let the tide come in. It's the only way to wash it back out.
