Quotes

(Monty Python - The Space Song)

Pray that there's intelligence, somewhere up in space

'Cause there's bugger all, down here on Earth.

(Doctor Who)

Doctor: Oh man ... don't tell me you're Archeologists?

Woman: What do you have against Archeologists?

Doctor: I am a Time Traveller. I point and laugh at Archeologists.

(Facebook)

Dear Parents. Jasmine was in a relationship with a dirty homeless boy named Aladdin. Snow White lived alone with seven men. Pinnochio was a liar. Robin Hood was a thief. Tarzan walked around without clothes on. A stranger kissed Sleeping Beauty and she married him. Cinderella lied and snuck out at night to attend a party. You can't blame us. We were taught to rebel since a young age.

(Other Fanfictions)

World domination is such as ugly phrase. I prefer to call it world optimization.

(Other Fanfictions)

Well, that was a short little journey into god-hood. I expected this to take longer than my first day at school.

(Other Fanfictions)

Lord Vader: "I will say this once - women are a dangerous proposition, son. I got married, and brought down two galactic governments as a result."

(Ice Age 3)

"What's that?"

"The wind ... it's speaking to us."

"What's it saying?"

"I dunno ... I don't speak wind."


Amusing Moments of My Life:

(Leaving Accounting)

Me: So, Angela, (claps Angela on shoulder) See you in Graphics. (starts to leave)

Angela: (pauses) ... Caitlin? You don't take Graphics. And neither do I.

Me: ... (thinks) So I don't. (walks back and claps Angela on the shoulder again) See you in Physics. (walks away).

(In Physics, Testing Conductivity)

Girl 1: What's gold made out of?

(Walking)

Angela: Hey, you know the whistle Gandalf makes when he summons Shadowfax?

Me: I don't know whether to be more concerned that you're turning into a Geek, or more concerned that I know what you're talking about.

(At Family Reunion)

Aunty: (reading from a box of Candy Canes) Let's see ... sugar free, fat free, glucose free, calorie free-

Me: Fucking hell, what is in it?

(In the Lounge)

Dad: Those jeans look horrible on you.

Me: If I was any other teenage girl, I probably would have killed you for that.

(Watching Inception)

Kieran: "I'll never get to see my children's faces agai-" Hasn't he heard of Skype?!

(School)

Mr F: So, we have a new member of our class! He's a transfer student from Japan, his name is Misaki!

Me: (sudden flashback to Junjou Romantica) Cra~ap ...

(Economics)

Mr B: Mitchell! What are you doing?!

Mitchell: Um ... (hides phone)

Mr B: Mitchell, let me tell you the first Rule of Life; look busy, even if you aren't. If you don't want to do the work, at least look like you're doing the work.

(Study Room)

Me: Hm. Falling out this window wouldn't be very fun.

Steven: I'm not so sure. You've got great flotational devices; if you landed right side down, I'm sure you'd survive.

(Thinking About Life)

Me: Swimming in candy would be weird. You'd get candy in all sorts of awkward places.

(Texting)

Angela: Hey, do you have Akali's number?

Me: No, but I do have her mother's.

Angela: ...

Me: ... don't ask.

(Maths)

Ash: The mark of a true friend is one who will delete your browser history when you die.

(Computer Room)

Me: I have on this keyring two USB drives. One contains my homework. The other will override the operating system and install/run Linux on whichever hard drive it is inserted.

Friend: Huh?

Me: There's a reason one of the computers in D5 wasn't working last year.

(Interval)

Ash: I know the lyrics to every song I've ever heard.

Me: National Anthem?

Ash: ... fuck.

(School Play)

Lead Male: Before you met me, you were nothing; you were women!!

(Evening)

Me: Shuttup and watch Care Bears.

Four Year Old Sister: You're making me mad. You won't like me when I'm mad.
