A to Z Challenge: Can I Quote you?

Click here for more participants!
Along with any other self-proclaimed geek worth her salt, I have a lot of random information floating around in my head.  Many times this takes the form of Quotes that I sprinkle in randomly during the day.

Here are some of the most common for me:
  • "Run away!" from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Used as a signal to retreat, like avoiding the salespeople in the Mall trying to spray me with something.
  • "Hey careful! There's a beverage here!" from The Big Lebowski. Usually used when Franklin (my little dog) tries to jump in my lap while I'm busy doing something.
  • "What we need is some rope." from Boondock Saints.  Usually said when staring at a box of jumbled pieces waiting to be assembled into something.  
  • "Damage my calm" from Firefly. Used when someone is really starting to push my limit.  Usually when I'm trying to finish a book or go to sleep, and the husband starts tickling me.
  • "Knock, knock, knock, Penny." from Big Bang Theory. Used whenever I've tried to get the husband's attention, and he's still to interested in something else to answer me.  Best used in repetition.
So what do you find yourself quoting?

You made me think of the two favorite quotes I use...

"Shiny!" From Firefly and "Bring me back a Shrubbery! Not to tall. Not to short." from the creative genius (or perhaps madness) that is Monty Python.

I don't think I quote anything, but my husband does. I'll have to really pay attention to what I say and see if I've stolen it from anyplace!

Beloved Husband and I quote the TV show "Mad About You" all the time.

Recently I've been quoting "Raising Hope" and "Big Bang Theory" although with big bang theory It's mostly just using "Memaw"; like when I'm behind a little old lady who is taking forever to get across the street, I'll say "come on Memaw you can do it."
