    I do Mr Burns' "Eeeexcellent...!" often.

    Otherwise, it's "Back off, man. I'm doing science!"

    As the board's resident sperglord regarding Ghostbusters, I feel compelled to point out that the line from the film is "Back off, man. I'm a scientist."

    Fifth season opening of B5!


    How could I've forgotten that? It even explains the voice I hear it in in my inner workings :lol:

    I love some of the Wayne's World catchphrases.

    "We're not worthy! We're not worthy!"

    "She will be mine. Oh yes, she will be mine."

    "She's a robo-babe. She's magically babealicious."

    And, of course: "Schwing!"

    I often find myself saying, with a nasal Valley Girl inflection, "What-everrrr . . ."

    And my own personal catchphrase, spoken in the "dumb guy" voice David Letterman used to do: "Course, now they do all that stuff with computers."

    I've never heard that one. What's it from?

    Once in a Bill Engvall standup routine he was talking about how his daughter called him while he was on the road and she asked him to buy a CD for her, she said "Pick up some Barenaked Ladies". After about a twenty-second pause Bill goes "All....righty." :lol:

    Now that's what I always say when I see something unexpected...

    Also, if something good happens to me, I'll say "Ripping". I got it from a Python sketch (about a minute in):

    But my actual favorite catch phrase of all time? Must be "Nice pants." :D

    I use these all of the time:

    "You've given me double diabetes. Thank you."
    "I seem to have misplaced my pants."
    "Well, there go the piano lessons."
    "Fudge barnacles!"
    "Sweet Zombie Jesus!"

    "I see what you did there." I use that one quite a bit, especially on the Twitter.

    (I sometimes add a superfluous "the" to a brand name, too. ;))

    Or the 0:37 mark in this if you want to know where they probably stole it from:

    As for me, I use "Fair enough" a lot as a response to things. I've also recently started using "Cool. Cool cool cool." on occasion, as well. No idea why... :shifty:

    "D'oh!"

    "Don't call me Shirley" any time someone says Surely in a sentence. :p Also, the whole "Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit smoking/drinking/amphetamines/sniffing glue."

    "What. What. What?", "I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry." or "Allons-y!" Sadly, most people in my off-line life are not Doctor Who fans and look at me like I'm weird. Wait, they do that anyway. :p

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

    "I knew it! I'm surrounded by Assholes!"

    I've been known to mutter "frak" in the real world without realizing it...

    I also like "Lighten up, Francis," but that's almost 100% limited to teh internets, where it is often very pertinent. ;)

    I like that one. I always hear it in my head with Hulka's voice.
