These are great!

A properly-delivered snappy line can be so good that it's worth whatever hardship prompted it in the first place. Usually it's the line you think of two weeks after being insulted.

I wasn't too thrilled with this list. "Bite my shiny metal ass" is #1? I mush prefer the link to the 10 best swordfights of all time. It had serious flaws too, as there were a lot of fights with gunplay involved and some choices were made more on nostalgia than the quality of the swordplay, but the clips were much longer and they did get in some of the greats.

Okay, The Avengers hasn't been released yet, but I thought this would do:

Steve Rogers: Big man, in a suit of armor... take that away, what are you?
Tony Stark [FTW]: Uh... genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist...

Oh yeah

And if you wanna go for the classics:

Han Solo: I don't what we're gonna do now. Even if I could take off, I could never get past the tractor beam.
Obi-Wan: Leave that to me.
Han Solo: Damn fool, I knew you were going to say that.
Obi-Wan [FTW]: Who's the more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him?

Good one! yes

Stop, Dave. I'm afraid. I'm afraid Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it Dave.
