Pinky's catch phrase "Narf" stands for Nuclear Attack Readiness Formation. At least... it does in this episode.
Admiral : Thanks for hurry over, Jonesy. How the kids?
Jonesy : Actually sir, Angela broke both legs and Jeffery thinks he's a koala.
The Brain: What is narf? Please tell me.
Pinky: Well, it's like "Zort!", or "Poit!"
Pinky: Oh, please, Brain! If we don't do something soon, I'll go out of my mind!
The Brain: That's a short trip.
Brain: We shall receive the aid of legions of unassuming humans because they will be hypnotized by the secretions of a rare Peruvian Gaokin. After we collect the frog's fluid, we shall mix the floury batter and have a giant pancake jamboree!
(Brain is showing Pinky a map of their trajectory)
Brain: This is our position, and here is the hull of the Titanic.
(Pinky looks at the map and mistakes the feet between them for inches)
Pinky: Egad, Brain. It's so close. We'll be there before you can yell poit.
Brain: We'll reach mars before I yell poit, Pinky.
(Later, as the sub is being bombed)
Pinky: Egad, Brain. We'll be okay, won't we?
Pinky: (After Brain escapes from his cage) Boy, that was a good one Brain!
Brain: They are all good ones, Pinky.
Brain: The sea, Pinky. "Roll on, thou deep and dark blue ocean. Roll." - Byron.
Pinky: Good one, Brain. Oh, oh, I've got one too! Um..."Hey you kids stay out of that rip tide"... Baywatch.
Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Pinky: I think so Brain, but there's still a bug stuck in there from last time.
Jack McGuire: I take no joy in the demise of another man... usually!
Pinky: If you could be any animal, what would you be?
Brain: Well, Pinky, I'd be a hawk, and I would swoop down and catch little white mice in my talons and feed them to my young.
Pinky: Uh ... That's just weird, Brain.

Star Trek TOS episode Balance of Terror:
Captain Jack McGuire's mid-battle speech to Brain is very reminiscent of the Romulan captain's speech to Kirk... "We are of a kind you and I. In another reality I could have called you 'Friend'"
