I heard a great one last night on Law and Order from Gorin's character to his loser brother:

"If you were on a bridge and were going to jump,I'd be waiting for the splash"
"Sometimes people can be oh so dense"

And there's the classic line attributed to Desraeli(sp?), who defined the the difference between a disaster and a catastrophe thus:

If Mr. Gladstone were to fall into the river Thames, that would be a disaster.
If someone were to fetch him out, that would be a catasrophe.

I don't know if these are actually accurate but...

WC Fields:
How can you drink water! Fish <function> in it!

May West,
She point to her left thigh saying <If this is Christmas> then points to her right thigh saying <and this is Easter>... <why don't you visit me between the holidays>..

Speaking of Mae West, wasn't it she who said "I was pure as the new fallen snow....but I drifted."

Which in turn prompted Tulaluh Bankhead to describe herself as being "pure as the driven slush!"

And when it comes to boy/girl relationships, GBShaw was sitting next to a lady at a dinner party. He asked her, "would you sleep with me for a million pounds?"

"For a million pounds," she replied, "of course."

He then asked, "Well, would you sleep with me for ten pounds."

"Ten pounds!" she exclaimed. "What do you think I am?"

His response: "Madam, we've already established what you are. We're just dickering over price."

As you like it

"More of your conversation would infect my brain"

"There is no more faith in thee than in a stewed prune"
Henry IV
