    A pretty good running gag:

    Gob: "Still... where did the lighter fluid come from?"

    Plus I always laugh really hard when he plays The Final Countdown.

    Since the other COME ON quotes have been taken.

    Before the Christmas Party Commences

    Al: Hey, need a hand with that?
    Gob: No Al, I want to spill booze all over my freaking $6300 suit. COME ON!!

    "Annyong."

    "I hate White Power Bill" (jumps from the jail railings)

    "I'm afraid we lost him" "No, daddy no love him"

    I also agree that 'the final countdown' is funny each time.

    Michael's 'NOT' joke to Atty. Maggie Lizer.

    Tobias: "My doctor said I could be fully healed if I remove my hair implants."

    The title 'Ready, aim... marry me!'

    My favorite line from George Michael - from "Beef Consomme" after talking with Maeby about whether or not they're related.

    "Maybe we're not a family. And maybe that's very, very right... Uncle GOB!"

    Some of my favorite lines are from The Cabin Show

    GOB: "I kind of feel like the kid who found the severed hand." (statue of kid holding a father's hand)

    Swallow's MGR: "Tuna melt's up. And you need to flip the cushions in the grind room."

    Tobias: "Yes sir, right away sir. Oh great, now I'm going to be smelling to high heaven like a tuna melt!"

    Michael: "So, where did you get this kid?" (Steve Holt)

    GOB: "Yeah, I guess I can tell you now. We were both waiting for our dads at that garden where the little boy found the arm. Kid's amazing though, it's almost like I wish he could be my dad."

    Gob: "My God, what is this feeling?" (Hiding from Steve Holt)

    Michael: "Ya know the feeling that you're feeling... is what many of us call ... a feeling."

    GOB: "It's not like envy, or even hungry."

    Michael: "Could it be love?"

    GOB: "I know what an erection feels like Michael! NO!" CLASSIC GOB!

    Hahahaha I love that quote above about Gob discovering what a feeling is.

    Other ones that have popped into my mind...
    "NO TOUCHING!"

    Rita: Oh Michael...you're such a pu$$y

    Maeby (on Steve Holt vs. GM): Well that's like comparing apples and...some fruit no one's ever heard of.

    Most of my favorite quotes seem to come from Tobias. I think the "I'm afraid I just blue myself" line takes the cake. Not only that, but when they're in the hospital waiting on news regarding him and Michael's talking to the family about him, and they ask him what the last thing he said was, the scene goes back to him saying "I just blue myself." I still can't stop laughing from that.

    And also when Tobias, Lyndsay and Michael (I think) were in the kitchen, talking about when rage or side-effects happen when you least expect it, Tobias looks into the fridge and yells "WHERE'S MY F'N HARD-BOILED EGGS?" It's like the most random thing to yell about, and it was just hilarious. Also I think any time someone said the name "Bob Loblaw" was a one-liner in itself.

    Oh, and how can I forget, right from one of the first episodes, when Tobias goes into the audition and does the part as if there's a real fire, and he's like "We're having a FIRE! sale..."

    LOL that's one of my favorite Tobias lines especially of the line he says right before it: "Here he comes. Here comes John Wayne. I'm not gonna cry about my pa. I'm gonna buy an airport, put my name on it. Why, Michael? So you can fly away from your feelings? You can keep them bottled up, Michael, but they will come out. Sometimes in the most unexpected-". And on the subject of eggs, I love GM talking about Ann eating a mayon-egg and Michael's disgusted face afterwards.

    Wow, Lyght, I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't catch the double meaning when I watched the show (took it litterally). Thanks. That has to be one of the best exchanges in the series.

    I love that scene! David Cross's body movements as he's saying all this are just hysterical!

    No need for embarrassment! I'm constantly catching new levels of meaning/jokes when I re-watch episodes.

    That's what's great about AD though, I'm pretty sure I've gotten nearly all the jokes in the series since I've watched all the DVDs at least 4 times (lost count of the amount I've watched the first season's first disc, when introducing new people to the show) but especially on the second viewing, you pick up more jokes, like from Visiting Ours, I didn't understand how Michael came to the conclusion that Kitty was in the trailer the first time, but after that when I paid more attention, it's that much funnier.

    George Sr: I've done a repulsive thing.
    Michael: Woah, it's Kitty in there?

    But of course the biggest laughs come from the more obvious lines, like the end of Key Decisions, one of my favourite earlier episodes when the show was still catching steam, where it seems like the joke's on Michael, and then they do a 360 and screw Gob over as well (I've made a huge mistake) and then take it one step further on the "Next Episode" where he goes as far as wishing he was dead from sticking with Marta. And yes, the two examples are from episodes I watched last night.

    Yeah, Key Decisions is one of my favorite episodes too. I'm really surprised it's rated pretty low on the list.

    But, back to one-liners:

    Maeby: "Do you want to go shopping with me? I bet you could get something cool."

    George Michael: "Yeah, I'm gonna need a leather jacket for when I'm on my hog and need to go into a controlled slide."
