More seriously I like

"I've seen things you wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

This. From the "Bladerunner".

Or, and the whole "Firefly" series.

hmm, if a hitch-hikers guide to the galaxy counts as true sci-fi it has to be
'this must be a thursday. i could never get the hang of thursdays.'

Did you ever want to set someone's head on fire, just to see what it looked like? Did you ever stand in the street and think to yourself, I could make that nun go blind just by giving her a kiss? Did you ever lay out plans for stitching babies and stray cats into a Perfect New Human? Did you ever stand naked surrounded by people who want your gleaming sperm, squirting frankincense, soma and testosterone from every pore? If so, then you're the bastard who stole my drugs Friday night. And I'll find you. Oh, yes.

Johns: How's it look?
riddick: Looks clear.
[Johns steps forward, and a creature flies out towards them. They duck and it flies into the night]
Johns: You said it was clear!
riddick: I said it *looked* clear.
Johns: Well, how does it look now?
riddick: Looks clear.

I am not sure if Scifi books count as well, but I found this to be entertaining.

The book is Republic Command: True Colors and this part follows Ordo (one of the Null Troopers) destroying decades of research work done by the head clone scientist, Ko Sai.

Ko Sai: "You're savages. Why should I cooperate with you know if I didn't before?"
Mereel: "Because you're stuck in a ship with four creatively sadistic people who hate your gray guts, and maybe the strill and the jedi aren't to fond of you either"...

His statement goes on, but it was the first part of what Mereel said that got me laughing.

Jayne: "Good. 'Cause I don't know these folks, don't much care to."

Jayne: "I'm in."

this... also:

Zoe: So the border planets?
Mal: I'm thinking Whitefall, maybe talk to Patience.
Zoe: Sir, we don't want to deal with Patience again.
Mal: Why not?
Zoe: She shot you.
Mal: Well, yeah, she did a bit.
Mal: Been a long time since Patience shot me, and that was due to a perfectly legitimate conflict of interest. I got no grudge.
Mal: Did you send word to Patience?
Wash: Yeah, ain't heard back yet. Didn't she shoot you one time?
Mal: Everyone's makin' a fuss.

You see, according to Cocteauís plan Iím the enemy, ícause I like to think; I like to read. Iím into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. Iím the kind of guy likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder - "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecued ribs with the side order of gravy fries?" I WANT high cholesterol. I wanna eat bacon and butter and BUCKETS of cheese, OK? I want to smoke Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section. I want to run through the streets naked with green Jell-o all over my body reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly might feel the need to, OK, pal? Iíve SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? Itís a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "Iím an Oscar Meyer Wiener". - Edgar Friendly - Demolition Man

Hannibal Lecter: Why do you think he removes their skins, Agent Starling?

Clarice Starling: No. No, you ate yours.

By far one of the funniest quotes in scifi when put into context of the episode is the following :

Kryten : Sir, Mr Rimmer is suffering from a stress related nervous disorder.
Lister : Next time I see him he'll be suffering from a fist related teeth disorder.

Alright, I think we can agree that almost every last line of dialogue from Firefly is automatically worthy of being in this thread.

slight deviation into the world of anime for a second - this is from "Ghost in the Shell"

Major Motoko Kusanagi: "What the hell did you use?"
Batou: "Your standard issue Big Gun."

You know, I've seen a good bit of 'real' sci-fi, but my favorite is from Clear Skies.

"Right. Let's get undocked and see what bits fall off the ship."

Also, "It always stops at one on the show!" (after disarming the self-destruct but it continued to count down to one anyway) is a great one from GalaxyQuest.

Dave:- All right, HAL; I'll go in through the emergency airlock..

Hal:- Without your space helmet, Dave, you're going to find that rather difficult..

[on Dave's return to the ship, after HAL has killed the rest of the crew]

Hal:- Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

Maybe not the best sci-fi quote, but worth remembering... from the Matrix when one of the agents are interrogating Neo and offering a deal.

Neo: "Wow. That sounds like a really good deal. But I think I have a better one. How about... I give you the finger... (puts up his finger)... and you give me my frigging phonecall?"
