    I've always been partial to:

    "Where's the beef?"

    or

    "That's what I'm talking about!"

    I just love saying those! Which ones do you use?

    That's the ticket!

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

    "Laser" (with quotation fingers)

    "A Meeeelion Dollars"

    Oh and I say "Doh!". A lot.

    These, and "D'oh!" are regulars in mine... and I can often be known to exclaim, "Wow, THAT escalated!" whenever something crazy or ridiculous happens.

    It's a freakishly strange thing to say around here (as it is in a foreign tongue), but I have been known to utter the phrase: And so it begins... every now and again.

    I have no idea where I might have picked it up though, could be from an old 'sandal-movie' or from a more recent teenager-movie (I'm sure it must've been some sort of film (or TV-show)).

    As a phrase it has the ability to defuse a tense situation and make people start laughing instead of start fighting -which is what I like about it [​IMG]

    I used to do a lot of my swearing in foreign tongues; loved rolling the r in 'merde' and use German to really put someone in their place.
    These days English words cannot be used as the people native to that family of languages seem to have a sort of double standard about their swear words and don't like seeing them in print (~on monitor) -so I switched to the more geeky (which is what I love about them) words like Frak and Gorram -which no one around here seem to recognize :lol:

    "If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck... it probably is a duck."

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    And I tend to use "Indeed." quite a lot.

    There are many more that I use on a regular basis in Italian.
