    Default Where's that quote from?

    We all have one. A quote we absolutely love, but can't think of what it's from. Mine is:

    "Strong like bull. Smart like tractor."

    Does anyone know what it's from?

    Maybe you have a beloved quote but don't know where it's from?

    We've been debating and searching this one at another forum I frequent for YEARS.

    How about this?

    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Sorry, got no idea on the others.

    I'm curious as to where "I am made of awesome!" came from.

    Tiberian, I don't have them handy but that very well could be from the Shadow series from Card (Ender's Shadow most likely). But yes, read Ender's Game first! I'm a long time member of OSC's message board, been a fan for a looooong time.

    Thanks for the avatar comment, I made that one for the current contest. :)

    I could swear it's from a Magic card. Null Rod, maybe?
    I no longer actively read the forums, and probably won't respond to any PMs. I'm fine with people using my homebrew in anything, including fan-compilations and wikis, as long as you credit me.

    Almost. Null Rod's flavour text is:

    Gerrard: "But it doesn't do anything!"
    Hanna: "No—it does nothing."
    .

    So close, but no cigar.

    I have no idea where this is from, but I would like to know.

    Yep, it is. His little assistant guy or whatever says it to the bouncer with the silly psychic card thingies. Good film, I thought.

    I don't have any myself, but not long ago I was trying to remember where the "What we do in life echoes in eternity" line was from. It was during a pub quiz and just before the end of the round I finally remembered it and promptly blurted it out to the entire room. :P

    Not a quote, per se, but it's been bugging me for some time and I don't want to reread the book to find it out, but who is Aramis's valet in The Three Musketeers. I know D'Artagnan has Planchet, Porthos has Mosqueton, and Athos Grimaud, but Aramis's eludes me. I'm fairly certain it starts with a B.

    We were thinking Frieza Saga, when Frieza gets the Namek DBs. But that's unlikely, because ~1 year is not "long".

    From Chapter 7 of The Three Musketeers (http://www.worldwideschool.org/libra...ers/chap8.html), in which all of the lackeys are introduced in turn, Aramis' valet is named Bazin. That was such a good story, and I really should get around to reading The Man in the Iron Mask at some point.

    Ok, here's the quote that no one I know can come up with where it was saidfirst.(including myself)

    "Who's your daddy?" :)

    Not the most literary of quotes, but I'm still curious...

    Well, for "Who's your daddy," it's hard to tell, but I was told that the most likely point of origin is in the song Time of the Season by The Zombies in 1968. Not a movie, but I would hazard a guess at that one.
