    Hey that fav 5 villians was fun! How about fav 5 villian catch phrases? I’ll start: 1. “I’ll be back” from the ‘Terminator’ Who could imagine that line launching a career for a guy who could hardly pronounce it? Now he’s my governor. 2. “It’s alive! It’s alive!” original ‘Frankerstein’ 3. “I’m your father….” Darth Vader ‘Star Wars’ 4. “Rosebud” I still don’t know what that means. 5. “We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!” Ok, ok, it’s not sci-fi, but it’s damned catching! Who’s next? Sleepless in Corona. Edbo


    I really like your choices, Edbo. No doubt I would’ve chosen some of them if you hadn’t written them down first. Here are some of mine:

    5. The Number 2s from the Prisoner, “We want information, information, information.”

    4. “I’m just a mean green mothah from outer space” (Little Shop of Horrors).

    3. “Hello, pretty-pretty!” (The Great Tyrant From Barbarella)

    2. The Daleks from Dr. Who: “Eterminate, exterminate.”

    1. And my number one villainous catch-phrase must be the evil, maniacal laugh from countless villians: “Bwahaha!”

    Incidentally, my number 4 choice reminds me of one of the best-known non-villianous catch-phrases: “Don’t make me angry; you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry” (Dr. Banner from The Incredible Hulk)

    Most notable entries go to the Star Trek franchise’s Borg’s “Resistance is futile,” and to Alex DeLarge from Clockwork Orange with, “Come and get one in the yarbles, if ya have any yarbles, ya eunuch jelly thou!”

    Edit: ‘Nother notable entry should be The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz… “I’m melting, I’m melting!” And I’m sure the aforementioned Great Tyrant’s line was indebted to the witch’s quote, “Well, my little pretty, I can cause accidents too!”


    Kudos, Logan! Your choices took the catch phrases, right out of my mouth! Come on, who’s next? Quit ‘viewing’ and start pounding that keyboard…..(pahleeeeeas)!


    The Borg: “resistance is Futile.” Sums them up nicely, I feel. 😈

    Daleks: “Exterminate.” Again, so simple a catchphrase, so frightening a reality.

    Chang (Star Trek 6): “To be or not to be” in Klingon. When bad guys start quoting Shakepseare, you KNOW they’re gonna get it. 😈

    Bender (Futurama): “Bite my shiny metal ass!”- Not a villain but you could hardly describe him as a hero, could you? 😛

    Roy (Blade Runner): “If you could see what I’ve seen with your eyes…”- sends a chill down my spine every time.


    “To Serve Man” – from the Twilight Zone/Outer limits – has two different meanings….. 8) Can’t think of any others that have not been stated before…..



    The dead do not pooh – Kai from Lexx.


    Sorry, I couldn’t resist adding some additional villainous quotes (many are not particularly well-known catch-phrases)…

    “Prepare to die!” (numerous villains)

    “I vant to suck your blood” (Count Dracula).

    “We’re gonna do this the Scanner way. I’m gonna suck your brain dry!” (Darryl Revok from Scanners)

    “Igor, fetch more brains” (Dr. Frankenstein).

    “Brains … more brains!” (Return of the Living Dead).

    “I’m just a sweet transvestite from Transsexual Transylvania” (Frank N. Furter, The Rocky Horror Picture Show).

    “We offered them order!” — Khan, Space Seed, Star Trek TOS.

    “Remove the earth woman. Prepare her for our pleasure!” (Ming the Merciless, Flash Gordan”.

    “Pathetic Earthlings!” (Ming).

    “Welcome Humans! I am ready for you” (Box, Logan’s Run).

    “All this trouble over a fat little man in a red suit ” (Voldar, Santa Clause Conquers the Martians”)

    “Greetings from The Humungus! The Lord Humungus! The Warrior of the Wasteland! The Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla!” (Toady, Mad Max 2 aka The Road Warrior).

    The “bad guy” from Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse Now’s not so villainous saying, “The horror, the horror.”

    The psychotic, murderous madman, Jack Torrence from The Shining: “Here’s Johnny” — Also attributed to Johnny Carson’s evil sidekick Ed McMahon.

    And what about the villains from Monty Python?

    “We are the Knights Who Say ‘Ni’!… Ni! Ni! Ni, Ni!” (the Knights Who Say Ni from Monty Python and the Holy Grail)

    “We are now the Knights Who Say ‘Ecky-ecky-ecky-ecky-pikang-zoop-boing-goodem-zoo-owli-zhiv’” (The Knights Who Formerly Said Ni).

    Evil French Guard: “I don’t wanna talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper! I fa*t in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!” (The Holy Grail)

    “I have a vewy good fwiend in Wome named Biggus…” (Pilate, The Life of Brian)


    1. I’ll get you Penelope Pitstop! – The hooded Claw

    2. I’m sorry Dave, I can’t do that – Hal 9000 – 2001

    3. No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die – Goldfinger – Goldfinger

    4. A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti. – Silence of the Lambs

    5. I’m melting! Melting! – Wicked Witch of the West – Wizard of Oz
