What's the coolest quote from your favorite SiFi/geek movie?

By xfilz_1133 ·
My favorite is from the movie The Core, where Theadore Donald 'Rat' Finch (played by Dj Qualls) was being asked to take control of the internet, "hack the planet."
Rat: "How many languages do you speak?... I speak one. One Zero One Zero Zero. With that I could steal your money, your secrets, your sexual fantasies, your whole life. In any country, any time, any place I want. We multitask like you breathe. I couldn't think as slow as you if I tried."
That's powerful geek kung-fu indeed....

Sorry, mine's not geeky or SF.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to What's the coolest quote ...

"You're gonna need a bigger boat."

I say "42" a lot, but I'm quoting the book; I never saw the movie.

Oh, wait; I remember now.

"I'm going to **** up the Earth; it obscures my view of Venus."

Best Overall -

"You're gonna need a bigger boat." . . . and of course the several later references such as " . . . and then we'll get a bigger boat"

Best SF

"I'll be back" - Arnold in Terminator.
Which is also my favorite screen saver slogan.

Favorite movie quote of all time

by NotSoChiGuy In reply to What's the coolest quote ...

"Get busy living, or get busy dying."

In terms of SciFi/geekness, the first quote that pops to mind is "I ain't got time to bleed."

Too bad Ventura retired from politics. Would make a great battle cry for either side of the health care reform debate!

The Tick

by LocoLobo In reply to What's the coolest quote ...

And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, oooh, the sky is the limit.

From the Wrath of Khan

by Michael Jay In reply to What's the coolest quote ...

Spock: That is wise. Were I to invoke logic, however, logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
Kirk: Or the one.
Spock: You are my superior officer. You are also my friend. I have been and always shall be yours.

Also from Wrath of Khan

by Shellbot In reply to From the Wrath of Khan

Khan: "Kirk! Kirk, you're still alive, my old friend."

Kirk: "Yes! Still! Old! Friend! You've managed to kill just about everybody else, but like a poor marksman you keep missing the target!"

:) Love that..

Kirk: "He'll die in there!"

by CharlieSpencer In reply to From the Wrath of Khan

Scotty: "He's already dead."

There's just too much to select from this classic. You might as well post the entire script.
