The dialogue is one of my favorite parts of this delightful show. Here are some of my favorites:

Stark: Good job Carter. Wow that didn't even leave a bad taste in my mouth.
Carter: Give it a second.
Stark: Oh there it is.


And

Carter: So, you gonna come to Zoe's surprise party?
Allison: Oh, me? I thought you were into young brunettes?
Carter: No, no, Iím into old bruneÖ
Allison: Didn't come out right, did it?


And

Dr. Witicus: It's been building since last night. It is an incredibly dangerous confluence of meteorological events.
Carter: Uhh?
Henry: A perfect storm.
Carter: Thank you.
Dr. Witicus: A spinning cyclone of instability. High up in the cryosphere.
Henry: Ice funnel of death.
Carter: Gotcha. Why don't you people just say 'ice funnel of death'?

Hee!

Sheriff Cobb: That was Ned Carver. He claims aliens have abducted some of his cattle again.
Jo: Tell him to call me when they move on to anal probes. Wait, um, that didnít come out right.

Jo: Boys, there's plenty of back door access for everyone. That didn't come out right.

Jack: I went back to check some of my own personal files, and they'd been classified. These are my files!
Alison: It's not my fault that there are things about yourself that you're just not cleared to know.
Jack: Yeah, I'd hate to stumble across something that if I told me I'd have to kill me

Beverly: Looks like the men are trying to save us. We may be here for a while.

Zane: I still canít believe I let you talk me into chaperoning.
Jo: Hey, no one snapped off your fingers.
Zane: The ease with which you say that is almost as disturbing as it is hot.
Jo: I know.

Carter: I've swung things you don't even know about.
Stark: What does that even mean?


That may not be right. I'm still waiting on my S2 discs to get here.

Just re-watched "Before I Forget":

Carter: How are you so strong?!
Jo: I'm small...but I'm scrappy.


Stark: Yes. He said 'invisibling'.


Hee! I love the dialogue on this show!

There are so many great and funny lines from this show. I know I will be posting more as I think of them.

Jo: It's just my luck, right? All the good ones are either gay, married, or robots.


Jo: It's gonna blow! (as she runs from the office bathroom, toilet explodes, flies across the room)
Carter: What did you eat?


Stark: Weíll have to climb down.
Carter: Yeah, youíd better let me go first.
Stark: Why?
Carter: Heights make me nauseous.
Stark: After you.

Couple of Taggart-related quotes:
First, even Taggart can't resist the Stark:

Carter: But Stark's not perfect.
Taggart: Have you seen his abs? Damn close.

Then, Zoe gives some sage advice to Jo about her Taggert problem:

Jo: Maybe it was just a one time thing. You know. Adrenaline. Heat of the moment.
Zoe: Making out with Taggart? More like a moment of insanity.
Jo: Not so loud. Look, I really need some outside perspective here. Please?
Zoe: You want perspective?
Jo: Uh-huh.
Zoe: You hooked up with a guy whose age difference with you is the same as me and my dad.
(Jo looks over at Taggart. Taggart waves. Jo waves back.)
Jo: That did it.

From "Alienated," after Carter has persuaded Taggart, Jo and Fargo to not dissect Congressman Faraday and surrender peacefully...

Allison: So, everyone's okay?
Carter: Oh, no... they're freakin' BUG NUTS! (to soldier) Restraints. NOW!

Talking about crop circles.

Marshall Jack Carter: What do you make of this?
Deputy Jo Lupo: Well, it's a crop... It's cut into cicles...

There's one Eureka quote that has to be mentioned.

Carter: Yeah, that can't be good.

I love this little exchange between Stark and Carter (from the top of my head so it might be a bit off but the gist is there):

Stark: Oh, I like to think we're a little more refined than that, Sheriff.
Carter: Oh yeah? Well... you... overestimate me!
Stark: Touchť.

Jo talking about the school science fair (and how cool is it that the sign is obviously run by a Tesla device?) and concluding, "It's armageddon with acne," is priceless.

Came across another one during my DVD rewatch:

JO LUPO: Hey, what's this?
JIM TAGGART: Nothing. Gotta go. Carter needs us.
JO LUPO: You designed a paintball battle plan?
JIM TAGGART: Give me that. You know, you are in clear violation of the paintball rules of engagement.
JO LUPO: Me? You've got a regiment of splatter-bots ready to assault my rear flank.
JIM TAGGART: Oh, you'll know when I assault your rear flank.

Yeah, another one that didn't come out quite right.
Also from House Rules:

JACK CARTER: We need dynamite. God, I wish Lupo were here.
HENRY DEACON: That's it. We'll just blow her up.
JACK CARTER: She's not here.
NATHAN STARK: *reaches over and slides the glass of beer away from Jack*

Sigh... what frustrates me is that my favorite quotes don't translate so well, because it's the delivery that gives them teh awesome. Like my favorite from "Bad to the Drone":

(Martha blows out the windows of Carter's jeep.)
Carter: Noted.

Paraphrasing:

Jack: "No Sarah, she's gone"
S.A.R.A.H.: "What a shame!"

Speaking of Mrs. Carter:

Abby: S.A.R.A.H., forgive me if I donít feel the need to justify my parental choices to a talking bunker.
S.A.R.A.H.: Fine, donít let the door hit you on the wayÖ
Abby: (interrupting) Yeah, you wanna piece of me?
Carter: Ahem. Are you, uh, threatening the house?
Abby: She started it.

From Best in Faux:

(as Stark demands a favor and then walks away)
Carter: THAT's how you ask for a favor? Who raised you?

Also,
Carter: I don't have time to deal with dead fake dogs.

from the end of the parallel reality episode, which I just caught up on last night:

Carter: So, I've got fear of abandonment, emotional issues (he lists one or two more).
Henry: Well! Congratulations!
(They shake hands.)

It's all in the snappy cuteness of the delivery, of course.

Most of my favorite lines come from S.A.R.A.H.


S.A.R.A.H.: Sheriff Carter, you planned to do aerobic exercise tonight from 8 to 9:30, followed by bill paying.
Carter: Yeah, I'm taking the night off.
S.A.R.A.H.: Good idea. Stress is America's number one health problem.
Carter: I'll drop dead.
S.A.R.A.H.: Followed closely by sarcasm

Bad to the Drone
When Eva is steamed because Stark & Co. went behind her back:
Stark: "Some of us went in front of your back." *big smile*

Allison: "Could the two of you stop arguing and work together for a moment?"
(beat)
Stark and Carter: "Not likely."

Best in Faux
Allison: "The two of you should work together more often."
(beat)
Stark and Carter: "Nah."

From Season 2's Unpredictable
Allison: "Why don't we just focus on our work and we can put these awkward moments behind us."
Carter: "These awkward moments are the only social life I have!"
