What do you consider the best damn movie/series line or short dialogue in all of SF history? I'll start off with one of my personal favs from Battlestar Galactica:

Boomer: "How do you know you can trust me?"
Adama: "I don't. That's what trust is."

Actually Vin Diesels best "lines" as Riddick are all non-verbal.

Lessee..

When he puts the little spam can key on the rock, and looks up, patiently waiting...

When he comes out of Imams back room after cleaning the clocks of half a dozen New Helion militia, and just kinda stares at the one holding a knife on Imam...

That little shrug after sending one of the mercs headfirst into a light fixture on the way down to the Crematoria prison office...


It's also really the only way you get any kind of look at his better side.

Eye to eye with the dog-beast.
How his demeanor and intentions change when Ziza confronts him.
And when the one lady merc who kinda liked him asked him if he was gonna kill her now.

Diesel manages to convey whole paragraphs with just his body language, which is what makes him so good at that part.

THESOMNAMBULIST


"I was continuing to shrink, to become... what? The infinitesimal? What was I? Still a human being? Or was I the man of the future? If there were other bursts of radiation, other clouds drifting across seas and continents, would other beings follow me into this vast new world? So close - the infinitesimal and the infinite. But suddenly, I knew they were really the two ends of the same concept. The unbelievably small and the unbelievably vast eventually meet - like the closing of a gigantic circle. I looked up, as if somehow I would grasp the heavens. The universe, worlds beyond number, God's silver tapestry spread across the night. And in that moment, I knew the answer to the riddle of the infinite. I had thought in terms of man's own limited dimension. I had presumed upon nature. That existence begins and ends in man's conception, not nature's. And I felt my body dwindling, melting, becoming nothing. My fears melted away. And in their place came acceptance. All this vast majesty of creation, it had to mean something. And then I meant something, too. Yes, smaller than the smallest, I meant something, too. To God, there is no zero. I still exist!"

Don’t know if this qualities as science fiction, more like fiction/fiction.

The line goes something like this;

“ Robinhood….why do you steal from the rich?”


“ Why? Because the poor have no money!!”

From “Time Bandits” I think.

One of those- you’re an idiot for asking kind of moments. Makes me smile just to think about it

Klaatu: "Now, we do not pretend to have achieved perfection, but we do have a system, and it works. I came here to give you these facts.
