I want to do a quote debate because they look fun. The quotes can be funny, interesting, or whatever you want. There is one quote per round. In round 5, you can post up to three quotes. Oh, and just so you know, many of my quotes will be Anonymous.

"How is it that "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean the same thing?"
~Anonymous

Ok, I've never done one of these so I'd like to thank my opponent for posting this debate.

Here is my opening quote:

'There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?'
~ from the movie "Airplane"

Ok your move

Thank you for accepting it!

Here is mine:

"Borrow money from pessimists- they don't expect it back."

That is very good. Most of mine will have some form of source. I will now take one of my quotes from the Book of Proverbs:

"Iron sharpeneth iron, so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."
Proverbs 27:17

Ya I dont expect these debates to take long time. Here is my next quote.

'Medium,' 'Large' and 'King Size'? What the f*** is that? How the f*** can 'Medium' be the smallest? Do you even know what the word 'Medium' means? This is why you're all so fat, you bunch of road sign-shooting Yankee pillocks."
~ Ben "Yahtzee" Crowshaw

That's true. We are both on the site at the same time I think.

"All those who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand."

Alright for this round i got 3 quotes for you.

"Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force."
~ Darth Vader

"Hello, 911? It's Quagmire. Yeah, it's caught in the window this time"
~ Quagmire

"Al Gore's not going to be rounding up Jews and exterminating them. It is the same tactic, however. The goal is different. The goal is globalization. The goal is global carbon tax.…You need to have fear. You needed to have the fear of starvation. You needed to have the fear of the whole place going to hell in a handbasket. Which--do we have that fear now with global warming?…Then you have to discredit the scientists that say 'That's not right.' And you must silence all dissenting voices. That's what Hitler did. That's what Al Gore, the U.N., and everybody on the global warming bandwagon [are doing]."
~Glenn Beck [Glenn Beck Program April 30, 2007]

Nice ones. Okay, for your next argument, only post 1 because you already posted 3.

Here are my three.

"Who are you and how did you get in here?! I'm a locksmith, and... I'm a locksmith..."
~ Anonymous

" I'm lost. I've gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait."
~ Anonymous

"Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?"
~ Anonymous

Okay, remember to only post one.
TheSexicanMexican

Ok For my final quote, I quote a famous mexican author Carlos Fuentes

"Human kind will prevail. And it will prevail because, in spite of the reaction of history, novels tell that art restores right in us that was disregarded by history. History is being what was, then literature offers what history has not always been."

~Carlos Fuentes.

Thank you to all who read this debate. Please read through the quotes and choose who you like best, also remeber to vote Con!

I didn't like the Glenn Beck quote
It really isn't true, there is significant evidence to support global warming.
