alan r: I can make desert.. that's easy... the recipe is: x grams A, gas mark 9, 6 hours. x is any number. A is any substance.
Is the single s in desert here intentional? The quote makes more sense that way, but that shouldn't be a guide of anything...

mike: "Roll up, roll up! Get your cute alien squirrels here!"
dave: Apparently Tilbury used to be a battery for defending the Thames - alex: What, they dip the two electrical contacts into the water when invaders wade through it?
This was something along the lines of the strategy envisioned by David Jeffrey, when he started my quotes collection by saying to me "Why don't they make a battleship out of a huge toaster?" --SF

alex: "Yes, Mike, we tidied two-thirds of your bills into the coal-scuttle and one-third into the washing machine... I hope that's OK..."
mike: I thought you were going to say that bedders were sheep crossed with oranges

mike to alex: Yes, I brought you a Swiss carrot by accident, due to getting you confused with RyoOhki - alex: Well, I've been called a girl, I've been called an alien, I've been called bouncy, I've declared myself to be a spaceship... so I can see why you might get us confused.... maybe?!
have just found the below in my inbox that I said at the time ought to be quoted. It is here temporarily pending Alex's... er, I mean Nokkette's review
anna b: These neutrons don't get fed, they get hit really hard with protons which makes them so upset that they leave their cosy atoms and zoom down the beamline into our ice, where they get deflected all over the place and then gobbled by the detectors. Maybe the society for neutron rights will break my windows.
peter: I'll be impressed if you could put a well-ordering on all sheep
alex: I was able to kill it at any time, just by turning it into a sheep
alan: As if being taken out by a sheep wasn't bad enough, I'm being taken out by a *dead* sheep!
douglas [spilling a cup of water]: Sugar! Well actually, water! - alex: Don't mix the two up in a recipe! - stephen: Unless you're making icing...
dougas: You know as much of the game mechanics as I do; I just have horrible things Louise has done to me in the past to be... frightened by
mike to jo: Well, if you can think of a possible use for the Fourier transform of a chocolate bar, then...
stephen to alex: Cutlery is making a pilgrimage to your house to see what's in your fridge
dave: Mmm, toes! - alex: My favourite dessert!
mike: So how does one assemble shelves with a Matthew? - alan: Well, it's easy, you use his head to screw in the screws, and then bash them together with... [stops as inevitability of quotation dawns]
stuart: I don't spend much time wandering the streets of Cambridge when I'd have noticed a giant red illumin... no, I'm not going to finish that sentence... [He was talking about a giant red illuminated telephone]

abi: Presumably people are allowed to mutilate your corpse - stuart: Well presumably my corpse is allowed to defend itself!
lydia: First, I will bite off your head! Then, I will bite off your legs! Then I will bite off your arms. Then, I will bite off your necklace. ...And then, I will eat you!
[W] vitenka: Yeesh, what language am I speaking today, martian? [looks at sentence fragment] Gleep-weeble-spork, I am speaking martian! [...] I should owe you an apology for the unintended incomprehensibility of my excessive terseness, but instead I implore you to learn martian.

[W] vitenka: The HUD is a strange mix of the terminator and a peach melba yoghurt.
[W] vitenka: It's not often that you get attacked by a long haired ballerina with guns. Outside of an anime, anyway.
mike: Trains don't grow on trees, don't be silly! - alan: Yes they do! - mike: I think that's quotable. - alan: Have you never seen a train tree? Well, where do you think branch lines come from? And the railway wouldn't survive without trunk roots!
