"Our opponent is an alien starship loaded with atomic bombs."

"We have a protractor."

The funniest line in Neal Stephenson's Anathem, I'm rereading it four years later and there's a bunch of little things I missed the first time.

That quote sums up how I feel about fighting the GOP sometimes...

What are your favorite funniest lines in SF?

1. Excluding almost every line from HHGTG

From "Revelation Space"

“Believe me, when you're dealing with infectious alien mind parasites, I always find primitive is best."

But I'm also just starting "Redshirts" and I don't have a good quote but so far it pretty damned funny
