Need Sciency quotes for my costume, prize for the best
« on: October 27, 2010, 07:57:16 AM »
Hey guys:
 
Completely random, but I need mad sciency quotes for part of my costume. Reply with any quotes you can think of that are about mad science, shows, etc.
 
So far I have:
 
I REJECT YOUR REALITY AND SUBSTITUTE MY OWN
THE SAME THING WE DO EVERY NIGHT PINKY   TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD
NO I WILL NOT FIX YOUR COMPUTER
EVERY ACTION HAS AN EQUAL AND OPPOSITE REACTION
STAND BACK    I AM GOING TO TRY SCIENCE
If it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet
It's alive!
 
Not screaming, just had to cut and paste that way without re-typing.

Best quote (picked by me of course) gets 2 free Arduquee Slave kits, when I finalize the design (should be within November).

Here's a few quotes for you.

Dr. Horrible:
And by the way it's not about making money, it's about taking money. Destroying the status quo because the status is not quo. The world is a mess and I just need to rule it.

Dude. You're NOT my nemesis

Dr. Emmet Brown:
Great Scott!

The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?

If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious shit.

Don't worry. As long as you hit that wire with the connecting hook at precisely 88mph the instant the lightning strikes the tower... everything will be fine.

You're just not thinking fourth dimensionally!

The time-traveling is just too dangerous. Better that I devote myself to study the other great mystery of the universe: women!

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced Fronkensteen)
For what we are about to see next, we must enter quietly into the realm of genius

Put... the candle... back

Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?

Albert Einstein
When you are courting a nice girl, an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder, a second seems like an hour. That's relativity

Proffessor Chromedome
You're all a bunch of hippies, what with your 'loafer walking' and your touchy-feeliness! What good is science if no one gets hurt?!?!"

Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth
Everyone's always in favor of saving Hitler's brain, but when you put it in the body of a great white shark, ooooh, suddenly you've gone too far

Marvin the Martian
Halt, and be fricasseed.

Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering kaboom!
"Never regret thy fall,
O Icarus of the fearless flight
For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light."
 
Oscar Wilde

Knossos, I love you. The end.


Joking, but no kidding, great stuff. THANK YOU!

My neighbor actually went as Captain Hammer last Halloween.

Any others people? Don't be scared off by Knossos, even if no one beats him I might have something for runner-up.

How about:

From Asimov

All sorts of computer errors are now turning up. You'd be surprised to know the number of doctors who claim they are treating pregnant men.

I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.

No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.

Or Terminator Salvation

The devil's hands have been busy. What is it?

It has a hybrid nervous system. One human cortex, one machine.

You want to know the difference between us and machines? We bury our dead. But no one is coming to bury you.

More quotes (slow work day if you couldn't tell ;D) :

Captain Nemo
What you fail to understand is the power of hate. It can fill the heart as surely as love can.

Dr. Frank N Furter
 It was strange the way it happened. Suddenly... you get a break! All of the pieces seem to fit into place. What a sucker you've been, what a fool. The answer was there all the time. It took a small aciddent to make it happen. AN ACCIDENT! And that is how I discovered the secret. That elusive ingredient, that... spark that is the breath of life... yes I have that knowledge! I hold the key to life... ITSELF!

Sheldon Cooper
Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.

I'm not insane, my mother had me tested!

In 1917, when Albert Einstein established the theoretic foundation for the laser in his paper "Zur Quantentheorie de Strahlung, his fondest hope was that the resultant device be bitchin'.

A neutron walks into a bar and asks how much for a drink. The bartender replies "for you, no charge".

You're asking me to use my superior intellect in a tawdry competition. Would you ask Picasso to play Pictionary? Would you ask Noah Webster to play Boggle? Would you ask Jacques Cousteau to play Go Fish?

There's a fine line between wrong and visionary. Unfortunately, you have to be a visionary to see it.

Lex Luthor
Some people can read War and Peace and come away thinking it's a simple adventure story. Others can read the ingredients on a chewing gum wrapper and unlock the secrets of the universe

Brainiac
Indeed, I wish I had the time to make this encounter more intimate, but my work is at a critical stage. My attention and presence is required else where. In the mean time, I expect you to be a bit preoccupied.

Isaac Asimov
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...'

Nothing interferes with my concentration. You could put on an orgy in my office and I wouldn't look up. Well, maybe once.

It's not so much what you have to learn if you accept weird theories, it's what you have to unlearn

If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them

Immanuel Kant
Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.

Hippocrates
There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.

Indiana Jones
Nothing shocks me. I'm a scientist.

Douglas Adams
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry 'I could have thought of that' is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn't, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too.

The difficulty with this conversation is that it's very different from most of the ones I've had of late. Which, as I explained, have mostly been with trees.

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

If you try and take a cat apart to see how it works, the first thing you have on your hands is a non-working cat.

The knack of flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

The difference between something that can go wrong and something that can't possibly go wrong is that when something that can't possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Let us think the unthinkable, let us do the undoable, let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.

"Never regret thy fall,
O Icarus of the fearless flight
For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light."

My favourite comes from Jurassic Park:-

Quote from: Dr. Ian Malcolm
Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

 ;D

I actually guessed it was something like that, but wasn't aware of what it was.

Hi New member here, I thought of one:
"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers,"

and the less inspiring one:

"EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! DALEKS ARE THE SUPREME BEINGS!"
