This came to me on the bus the other day. If it already exists, sorry all.
Basically, you take lines from firefly, and use them out of context-e.g. Mal on learning that Simon, Kaylee and River went to the zoo: "Were there monkeys?"
This can also be done by putting a character outside of the firefly 'verse, but saying a firefly line-e.g. At the end of Titan AE, Wash is on Earth2: "...And we shall call it...'This Land'."
OR have a line from outside the firefly 'verse said in the 'verse-e.g. Book appearing and correcting Mal over his speech to Saffron:"No! No try. Do or do not. There is no try."
Whatever, just give the scene that it is now in (and if you feel like it, the original context).

-------------------------------------------
"BADGER: You think you're better than other people.
MAL: Just the ones I'm better than."
-------------------------------------
"MAL: Gotta say, doctor, your talent for alienatin' folk is near miraculous.
SIMON: Yes, I'm very proud."

Excuse me if I don't get the quotes precisely right..it's been a long day.

Han Solo: You like ships. And mine's the best one.
Obi-wan Kenobi: She doesn't look like much.
Han Solo: Oh, she'll fool ya.

I half-expected Kaylee to say "she'll make .5 past light-speed" the first time I saw this exchange. :)

Boromir: Hell, I didn't even want to bring that Ring with us.
Aragorn: Is that direction you want this conversation to take?
Boromir: I just don't want to take a lashin' for somethin' I didn't do.


Angel: This may come as a surprise, but I'm not very good at talking to girls.
Cordelia: Why, is there someone you are good at talkin' to?

Luke Skywalker: Do you think I'm stupid?
Han Solo: In every way possible.

I keep thinkin' of them the other way,too, like

Inara: I'd just as soon kiss a Wookie!
Mal: I can arrange that!

Shiny,

Thanks so much. Now I'm getting odd looks in the public library 'cause I'm giggling over the concept of little Ewok dolls with big heads that wobble.

This is one of those threads I really wish I could contribute to, but nothing I can come up with is as funny as anything y'all have already come up with. I'll keep working on it, though.

Scene: William Wallace addressing the clans before battle

Wallace: I'm no good with words. Don't use 'em much, myself... (crowd chuckles) But I want to thank y'all, for bein' here, and for thinking so much of me... Far as I see it, You people have been given the shortest end of a stick ever offered a human soul in this crap-heel 'verse... But you took that end, and you, you know... Well... You took it. And that's... I guess that's somethin'.

After the battle, Wallace wanders the field humming quietly to himself

Oh, that was awesome....I think I broke something laughing at that. I can actually HEAR them having that conversation in my head!

Actually the whole exchange in The Message that Mal has with the Fed about the crate over the vid has always reminded me of the cellblock break in Star Wars. "We're all fine here -- how are you?"
I'd do it with Han Solo, but I can't remember anything but Mal's "Is it marked at all?"

Here you go (idea courtesy of Ankhagogo):

SECURITY: This is Central Security. Weapons fire has been detected in your substation. Prepare to receive an investigative squad.

SOLO: This is substation 04257, I think there's been a mistake.

SECURITY: There's been a lot of mistakes, the latest of which is you being sloppy with your firearms and blowing up three security cameras.

SOLO: We took in a lot of Wookies today. If one of them damaged a security camera, we'll be sure to submit a report and a repair work-order, but I don't think we're your substation. Let me check through the cameras -- is it marked at all?

SECURITY: You might wanna think twice about playing games with me. I will bust you down to droid-polisher-second-class!

SOLO: You do that, your precious droids'll probably end up in bitty shards given my big clumsy hands. Now I got Wookies to attend to, sir, so you just stand by on this frequency and I'll see if there's anything here fits your description.

He turns off the screen.

LUKE: Security procedure has changed since I was little.

SOLO: They call back, you keep them occupied.

LUKE: What do I do, Tantooine shadow puppets?

I was watching Lord of the Rings last night. this popped into my head and i couldn't stop laughing.

Frodo sits on the riverbank, looking at the Ring. Boromere approaches and draws his sword. Frodo jumps and turns around

Boromere: Do I have your attention?
Frodo: We're kind of going to extremes here,ain't we?
Boromere: There's times I think you don't take me seriously. And I think that oughta change.
Frodo: Do you think it's likely to?
Boromere: You got something you don't deserve.
Frodo:And it's brought me a galaxy a'fun I'm here to tell you.
Boromere: Six men came to kill me one time, and the best of them carried this. (He holds the sword out to Frodo) It's my very favorite sword.
Frodo: are you offering me a trade?
Boromere: A trade? Hell, it's theft! This is the best sword made by man or elf, and its got extreme sentimental value! It's miles more worthy'n what you got.
Frodo: Well, my days of not taking you
seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

Faramir: "I don't believe he does."

Faramir: "You've never heard of orcs?"
Sam: "Campfire stories -- creatures gone savage on the edge of Middle Earth."
Faramir: "They're not stories."
Sam: "If they catch us, what will happen?"
Faramir: "They'll take you to Sauron,who will steal the Ring and destroy the worlds of Men. And if you're very, very lucky, they'll do it in that order."

Skipper: Gilligan, what are you doing?
Gilligan: I'm sorry, Skipper. I'm real sorry. I shoulda kept better care of her. Usually she lets me know when something's wrong. Maybe she did and I wasn't paying attention.
Skipper: (patiently) I cannot be having this from you right now. We got work to do. Dong-ma?
Gilligan: (re: the warped engine part)Catalyzer's broke. Gonna need a new one.
Skipper: There is no new one. We're on a deserted island. You gotta make do with what you got.
Gilligan: It's broke.
Skipper: Come on. This the part?
(Gilligan nods)
Well that don't hardly seem like nothing at all. Where does it go?
he shows him the spot in the engine.
Gilligan: Here. But it won't fit no more.
Skipper:Then you gotta figure a way to make it fit.
Gilligan: Tried. Sometimes a thing gets broke,can't be fixed.
Skipper: Engine don't turn without this?
Gilligan shakes his head "no."
Skipper: Engine don't turn, we don't get off this island. You wanna get off this island, don't you? Well so do I. Try again.

Farquard: now, we are going to conduct this interrogation correctly
Gingerbread Man: D-don't kill me
Farquard: I'm not going to kill you, Gingerbread Man. I'm just going to crumble little bits of you until you tell me what i want to know
Gingerbread Man: NO! she's in the tall tower in the forest far away!
Farquard: aren't they supposed to teach you to withstand interrogation?! this is so dissapointing! i was gonna get a gumdrop button too!

Star Trek, TNG, 'The Best of Both Worlds':
As they are about to lead an away team to rescue Picard who's been captured by the Borg-

Worf: If it moves, shoot it.
Crusher: Unless it's the Captain!
Worf: ... Unless it's the Captain.


Angel:

Illyria: 'I travelled all of them as I pleased. I walked worlds of smoke, and half-truths, intangible. Worlds of torment and of unnameable beauty. Opaline towers as high as small moons. Glaciers that rippled with insensate lust.
I once spent 6 weeks on a world where the principal form of recreation was juggling geese.'


Farscape:

D'Argo: Doesn't the Delvian Sikh have some pretty specific things to say about killing?
Za'an (holding a big gun): Quite specific. It is however somewhat wavier on the subject of kneecaps.

I was readin' a book of mine about James Bond last night, and found some good ideas for quotes...:

Serenity (originally Goldfinger):
LAWRENCE: "Do you expect me to talk?"
JAYNE: "Nope. I expect you to die."

The Train Job (originally OHMSS):
MAL (after pushing Crow through the engine): "He had a lot of guts."

War Stories (originally Goldfinger):
NISKA (while torturing Mal): "Choose your next witticism carefully, Mr Reynolds, it may be your last."

-------------------------------------------
"BADGER: You think you're better than other people.
MAL: Just the ones I'm better than." -Shindig.
-------------------------------------
"MAL: Gotta say, doctor, your talent for alienatin' folk is near miraculous.
SIMON: Yes, I'm very proud." -Safe.

I can imagine the look on Worf's face, too.

For all Final Fantasy IX fans...:

Amarant (after Zidane's beaten him): "Now, finish me!"

Zidane shakes his head.

Zidane: "Mercy is the mark of a great man."

He pauses then jabs at Amarant with his sword.

Zidane:"Guess I'm just a good man."

Pauses then jabs at Amarant again. Amarant winces.

Zidane (grinning):"Well, I'm all right."
