Most Recognizable Freespace Dialogue?
What do you think is the most recognizable dialogue from Freespace? As in, the ones people are most likely to identify as being part of the Freespace universe if you were to recite them?

For me, it would probably be the “Surrender Belasiauris (sp)” lines. If I heard someone say “Gunnery Control, power up photon beam cannons. Commence plasma core insertion” I’d probably assume they have played Freespaceat one point.

To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

While not strictly a Freespace word, anyone yelling "Incoming!" would instantly give me ST flashbacks.
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

What, no love for:

"Your posturing insults us both Vasudan, I will not surrender my ship!" and everything after that?

Probably "dive dive dive," of course. I mean, really. What else is there? Kappa 3's transmission, maybe.

Do cutscenes count? If so, then my near-memorization of all the cutscene dialogue would probably be my number one. That **** was some good writing.

Mainly Koth's dialogue with Colossus.
Interestingly enough, this signature is none of the following:
A witty remark on whatever sad state of affairs the world may or may not be in
A series of localized forum in-jokes
A clever and self-referential comment on the nature of signatures themselves.

I like the Colossus one the most, for some reason.
