My Top Ten Best Horror/Sci-Fi Quotes - Blogfest!!

OK, before I get into this...tell me:


Is it just me?  Or does that TOTALLY look like a flying saucer????  :)

Thanks to Ellie Garrett and Jeremy of iZombielover for hosting this uber cool blogfest!  Make sure you check out the list of other participants HERE.  OK, so I'm going to mix and match some quotes for you.  Mainly because I suck at remembering the specifics in movies and TV shows (yes - I'm including tv quotes...turns out I watch more sci-fi tv shows than movies...)  Except for the really, really well known phrases - which, sorry to say, you'll probably see listed below.  (Forgive me?)  I DO, however, LOVE a good horror or sci-fi flick/tv show!  So here goes:

1. Michael Meyers in Halloween:   "....."  (that's not cheating, is it?)
2. Tatum in Scream:  "Stupidity leak!"
3. Sydney Prescott, on the nature of horror movies, in Scream:  "What's the point they're all the same, some stupid killer stalking some big-breasted girl who can't act who is always running up the stairs when she should be running out the front door.  It's insulting." 
4.Regan/Demon in The Exorcist:  "What an excellent day for an exorcism."  *chills!*  (scariest movie EVER!)
5. Minnie in The Changeling (1980):  "That house is not fit to live in."  (OK, not the best quote - but a great no-gore scary movie!)
6. Spock in Star Trek II:  "I have been, and ever shall be, your friend.  Live long and prosper."
7. Capt. Picard in nearly every episode of TNG:  "Make it so."
8.  Seven of Nine during the "dark days" on Voyager:  "Resistance is Futile."
9.  (two parter)  Jack O'Neill to Teal'c on Stargate: SG1:  (Jack) "Damn!  Guess I'm going to have to cancel that Oprah interview."  (Teal'c)  "What is an Oprah?"
10.  Mal in Serenity:  "Half of writing history is hiding the truth."

Ah, man!  I think maybe I could have pulled 10 sci-fi quotes alone ~ Farscape (I so crushed on John Crichton!), Star Wars (Team Hans, all the way!), Deep Space Nine, BSG, SG: Atlantis....

But, I'll stop there and send you off with this:  

V

(ummm...OK, imagine I'm a Vulcan and the V is two fingers...)

Write long and prosper!

I only did one horror flick myself because I'm not a big horror girl. Suspense yes! Horror not so much! And I will be honest I had to look up my quotes because I could not remember them from scratch. I would have had to rewatch most of my movies. So well done!

Ellie said...

Yes. It does look like a spaceship - like the ones out of Independence Day!

A fantastic list, and of course Spock's last lines in Wrath of Khan; makes me all weepy thinking about it.

Excellent choices! (And I used the IMDB for accuracy, so don't feel bad you don't remember any exactly.) I didn't include TV showw, but SG1 would'v ehad many.

DL Hammons said...

That HALLOWEEN quote is classic!!!! :) And anybody who includes THE CHANGELING on their list knows what they are talking about. Such a great flick!!!!! :)

Madeleine said...

I feel somewhat out of my depth here. I know Star Trek and Stargate, but otherwise I'm lost
Looking forward to seeing your flowing fonts entry :O)

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

Maybe clouds are that spaceship's cloaking device!

Abby Minard said...

So glad you did a Scream quote! LOVE Serenity!!

M Pax said...

Does look like a spaceship. Cool.

I miss Stargate. And BSG.

Elaine AM Smith said...

Between Stargate and Farscape I could quote enough to cover a wall - but that would be... well... freaky ;)
The new V series hasn't been all bad either.

Colene Murphy said...

HA! Awesome list! So glad you did one from Serenity!

Kimberly said...

OMGosh, I like your ending. These are really awesome quotes. Love them all, but #7 and #8 are so good!

Budd said...

I kinda cheated with my Friday the 13th quote.

Jemi Fraser said...

I'm too wimpy to watch horror, but I nodded and smiled all the way through your sci fi ones!! So many good lines - Firefly, ST, SW, SG - so many faves!!!

Arlee Bird said...

That photo is so cool. The quote about history is very true.

I'm not much of a horror flick fan myself, so I've only got one.

Love so many of your choices. I especially love your Voyager quote, since Seven of Nine is my user name on the forum I'm a mod for.
