Re: Request: repository of Janeway's melodramatic quips

Ok, great! So here's what we have so far:
  • "Time to take out the garbage"
  • "We need to 'outthink' the Thinktank"
  • "Time to bring a little chaos to order."
  • "How do we 'out-smart' a smart bomb?"
  • "I don't respond well to threats."
  • "Time's up"
  • "Out-Ferengi the Ferengi."
  • "Dismissed. ... That's a Starfleet expression for 'get out'."
  • "I don't like bullies, I don't like threats, and I don't like you, Cullah."
  • "With all due respect, unless you've got something a little bigger in your torpedo tubes, I'm not turning this ship around."

I didn't include all of them, for I'm trying to stick to the overly-dramatic/over-the-top ones.

Please respond by including all of the above (making corrections to them as needed) and then adding your own. That way each post in the thread will becoming a growing list--we won't have to look at each post to find quotes, just the latest one.

And I should reiterate: there are undoubtedly errors in the quips. Please feel free to correct them so we have an accurate catalog. Once the thread is complete, we'll then have a long list of our favorite Janeway quips (not necessarily long quotes, just the dramatic quips; perhaps another thread can include both quips as well as favorite sayings/quotes).

Finally, it'd be nice if someone could include in parentheses after each quip the context (such as episode or to whom and why she was speaking).

So just copy, paste, and add as your time permits! Thanks, everyone!
