Snowy is nearly washed off a ship by a gale. Captain Haddock comments, 'Oh, it's you...Nice little breeze, isn't it?'

When Tintin sets foot on the moon and says, "This is it! I've walked a few steps! For the first time in the history of mankind there is an Explorer on the Moon!"

Thomson and Thompson in Explorers on the Moon: "This time we demand an apology!" "Yes, we apologize on demand."

My favourite dialogue? It always changes depending on my mood, but these days it has to be the Arumbaya's Cockney rhyming slang in "Broken Ear"

"At the bank? No, no, no, at the greengrocer. Outside that shop, among the fruits and vegetables, on the twelfth of September 1910, I stole for the first time. A pear! I was four years old. It's as clear as if it were yesterday." - Laszlo Carreidas, Flight 714 Page 24 panel 12.
My buddy Carreidas tells the best stories!

"Acting the Goat?????"

"You fee, boff, there waff an earffquake..." "I know that! And for heaven's sake, cut out that baby talk!"

Maybe one of my favorite quotes of Tintin is only seen in the black and white version of Cigars, where Tintin asks himself, as the asylum men reapproach him after he bought a banana- "What do these jolly lads want with me?" It just that it sounds so painfully British that makes it funny.

"Grrrrreat greedy guts!" is still used in my home.

From the TV series:

"Reporters rule number one!" Tintin, The Broken Ear

From the books:

"Hands up? Can't you see my arms are tied? Use your eyes!"

"Hello!" Snowy, Tintin in the land of the Soviets, page 120, frame 3.

"When are you going to let me snooze?" Snowy, Tintin in the land of the Soviets, page 116, frame 5.

"Good shot!" Snowy, Tintin in the land of the Soviets, page 26, frame 4.

"What a hiding!" Snowy, Tintin in the land of the Soviets, page 27, frame 5 (or final frame).

Personally I like it in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, when Snowy says: "Tintin! Are you dead? Say yes or no but answer me!"

I like that quote too! It's absolutely hilarous!

I don't have the books to hand, but "Chuff chuff!", Snowy, Tintin in America. "Still, you might want to take off my best bib and tucker.", Snowy, The Shooting Star.

Also, in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets Page 140 frame 1, after Tintin wonders if anyone is going to be at the train station, he says "When we get home I'm going to sleep for 48 hours solid!" And my reaction to that was "Snowy, you are my spirit animal..."
