Like Jelsemium, my favorite is Snowy saying, "I can't stand animals who talk."

Also Captain Haddock on the moon rocket telling the Thompson Twins that two Punch & Judy men aren't needed on the pier, so they can't have the job.

Some of my favourite quotes are:
"Tintin, are you dead? Say yes or no, but answer me!" This quote makes me laugh every time, made by Snowy.
"Billions of blue blistering barnacles!" Who can forget this?
"Crumbs!" Every time something goes wrong with me.

Moderator Note: We genuinely appreciate your enthusiasm, but threads like this really ask that you be selective: we all love lots of the dialogue in the books: the point here is to choose what you see as the absolute best, the one you would take with you to a desert island, or show to someone as the best of the best, not to flood the thread with lots and lots of examples.
