    Default The Classic Quotations Thread

    Time to revive this thread from the old forum. In this thread, you are invited to post any quotations from old comics that strike your fancy.

    I'll post the first one:

    COP #1: [reading Dragon's fan mail] I got one that says he's got a noisy neighbor he wants you to clobber.
    COP #2: Heck, I'll do it. I could use the exercise.
    --Couldn't we all? Savage Dragon #12, dialogue by Erik Larsen.

    SUPERGIRL: Cousin? I just thought of something... As the Supergirl of this era, am I away visiting another time period or something? Because I thought you couldn't materialize in an era where you already existed.
    SUPERMAN: Uh, yes. Yes, you're right... Right now, Supergirl... Supergirl is in the past.

    DRACULA: What are you staring at, fools? Begone!

    In honor of National Words-That-Don't Rhyme Week, here is the first of two "rhymes with orange" jokes.

    I sing a song to one dressed in orange! Errr... what rhymes with orange?
    --The Minstrel's botched attempt at a song, after Groo uses the Amulet to deprive him of his poetic ability. From Groo #35 (I think), script by Mark Evanier. The dialogue is my best recollection.

    And here is the second:

    JACQUES THE ANVIL: [...] I perceive that we are at a standoff. Feed me a line I cannot rhyme and we'll perform a hand-off!
    JUDAH THE HAMMER: A line you cannot rhyme?
    JACQUES: Make it quick and make it prime!
    JUDAH: There's never any fruit in Clausius' loot / Won't you have -- AN ORANGE?
    JACQUES: (curses in unreadable symbols)
    --The infamous impromptu rhyming contest from Nexus #11. Dialogue by Steve Rude.

    It's not really National Words-That-Don't-Rhyme week. I made that up.

    Is it like my imagination... or is every old buddy Wolvie's got in the whole world... like some incredibly fabulously gorgeous babe?

    The aborigines are bowing down to Lassie and her friends in worship.

    Chief Yukuma:
    "Do not harm us, O noble pale-faced ones. We were foolish to attack you."

    Capitao Jorge:
    By the saints! Because of Lassie's color, they believe she is some kind of goddess. I'll keep them thinking that until they answer some of my questions.

    They want to go home. They want to walk through their own fields and sleep with their own wives-- not lie on some stony beach passing around the camp slut.
    --Agamemnon on why he's postponing the expedition to Troy until the spring, from Age of Bronze #14. I admit that this quote is highly indecent and not quite two years old, but it made me laugh so hard that I just had to post it.

    They call me ‘White Flower,' but my name is Ruth Wells. For the past six years my father has been a missionary to the Makembe tribe. They have nearly all accepted the faith. Perhaps that is why their old enemies, the neighboring tribes, are more eager than ever to wipe them out, because now the Makembe love peace more than fighting!
