Captain Awesome isn't the only awesome thing about this show. The quotes and dialogue are... well... awesome too.

So far, "Whoa...computer emergency!" has to be by far my favorite, but here's where we can post our favorite quotes and snippets of dialogue.

I suppose we have to add "You Geeks are good". I mean on paper it doesn't look much like a great line, but the actress actually sells it pretty well.

The sister had a good line or two, as did Morgan. Can't call them up mentally right on the spot here though.

I have a great one half-formed in my mind, but need help. Anyone know if the scripts are posted anywhere?

If we're going to have a separate thread for 'awesome quotes', we definitely need:

Casey: "Don't puke on the C-4."


Hee!

Harry (played by the Asian CSI-type from Dexter, who works with Chuck at BuyMore): "He [Big Mike, the store manager] knows you won't leave the comfort of The Herrrrrrd." And yes, he exhales on Herd. Watch it again.

Morgan, on the phone with Chcuk while Chuck, Sarah, and Casey are trying to figure out how to defuse the bomb meant to kill Stanfield: "My computer's got a case of the Demovas." I know EXACTLY how he feels.

"Group hug?.......Awesome." You bet, dude.

And Big Mike? "Save it for the interview. Now go train the newbie." Ha!

When Morgan and Chuck are talking about Ilene eating up Morgan's computer, Morgan goes, "I can't help it. She's so beautiful! And lethal."
And then they both sigh, "Yeah." I love that!

"Group hug?.......Awesome."


what I love is the line that preceeds it: (paraphasing) I got an early morning procedure so I'm.....

reminds me of the scene in Newsradio where Dave did the same thing but still is complete in character and orginal.

Isn't there a cut to Sarah immediately after that too? You know... to send a bit of a message to the viewers...

EPISODE 2: Butt kicking quotes this time. You'd expect a 2nd episode to fail on that, but here are some great ones...



BuyMore boss guy: "Show me you are assistant manager material. I got a nap in an hour!"

Morgan: "Ramones man, I'm looking for the Ramones man. Ramones. Ramones."
Morgan falls down.
Morgan: "Oh, here it's on the bottom shelf. Ramones."

Chuck: "Why can't you go?"
BuyMore Nerd Herder: "Linux. PCs. We're Mac guys. We're artists."

Ellie: "How did you get in here?"
Morgan: "Chuck's window. Or as I like to call it, the Morgan door."

Morgan: "So, ah... I'm gonna make a little doggie bag and head out my Morgan door."

Chuck: "So in this plan I basically do nothing?"
Casey: "Yup."
Chuck: "Let's do this."


Seems like Morgan has the advantage on being quoteworthy.

Casey: "..I don't kid about quiche." Seriously, that is all I want on a t-shirt for Christmas with Adam Baldwin's face. (unless, of course, I could just have Adam Baldwin!) I like the humor of this show, lots of little throw-away jokes. Certainly worth the repeated viewings to see what I missed.

Is it wrong that I could listen to Morgan's teenager impression all day and never get tired? I loved that throw-away line at the end the best. You could barely hear it, but I snortled pretty hard when he said it.

My favorite was one of the teenagers that frequent Weinerlicious taking a bag of weiners from Sarah, responding with "I love you!", and running out the door with no reaction at all from her. Ha!

The line right after this I believe is:
Casey: Well if it screamed I would be right at home.

But I don't think thats right. Does someone know, cause thats when I squeed with excitment and decided that I truely loved this show.

Cap'n Awesome: "I spent most of my time Tangoing my way into senorita's pantelones!"

Ellie (to Morgan): "Do you know what a gelding is..."

Big Mike: "Nuthin' wrong with a man whetting his whistle every once in a while..."

Harry Tang: "When you go to sleep at night Bartowski, all you are going to see is Tang in your face..."

Casey (after throwing a microwave oven at a bad guy): "Now that's what I call moving some merchandise, yeah..."

Morgan (about Casey): "Man that dude is creepy (its SO funny because its Morgan saying it, and who's creepier than Morgan?)

One of many that I will be adding to once I get to rewatch the whole episode:

"We need something less gender specific."
"Fellow Nerd Herders?"
"The Lesters?"
"Chuck's stable of hos?"

HEEE!

Also, "I think I should kill you now."
"I disagree. Vehemently! I DISAGREE VEHEMENTLY!"

Awesome.

Morgan's reply: One of those little creature in The Dark Crystal.

What was the conversation between Chuck and John where Chuck can't tell when Casey is being facetious? Adam sold me on the sincere respect and the equally sincere dissing.
