Currently, I'm altering panels of webcomics and inserting a quote into a speech bubble for kicks and giggles. Stuff like, Piro from MegaTokyo beating Largo in a video game; Largo says "Et tu, Brutus?"
I'd like some quotes, please, which are either funny by themselves(read: bizarre) or serious, famous quotes that could be made humerous by the comic they're inserted in. Thank you to all who contribute.

You know what? This has always bugged me. Why do I have to marry beneath me? I don't want to. I want to marry someone who is simply better. Why do the guys get to marry up? You can't say i'ts because women are better in general. I don't believe it. There are just people, of all kinds.
I know, I know. It's more complicated than that, it's just a saying, really you match weaknesses/strengths, all that. I know. But the saying still bugs me.
If that's referring to Jesus...he wasn't exactly perfect, was he? I mean, there was the whole not-fair-to-take-the-children's-food-and-give-it-to-the-dogs thing, and although he did behave himself after being reprimanded, he did have to have it pointed out to him that he wasn't being nice.
But that's beside the point. Sorry. My quotations.
"Barker," said Auberon Quin suddenly, "where's your red cockatoo? Where's your red cockatoo?" "What do you mean?" asked Barker, desperately. "What cockatoo? You've never seen me with any cockatoo!" "I know," said Auberon, vaguely mollified. "Where's it been all the time?" --G.K. Chesterton, The Napoleon of Notting Hill
I mean, if Beethoven had been killed in a plane crash at twenty-two, the history of music would have been very different. As would the history of aviation, of course. --Tom Stoppard, The Real Thing
But I choose to wonder about how babies manage to pass the time. They can't pass it in tennis or badminton or golf, Or in going around rescuing people from Indians and then marrying somebody else the way Pocahontas did with the Messrs. Smith and Rolfe. --Ogden Nash
