While we're deciding what to do with the thread, let me toss you one of my personal all-time favourites:

"Um... no... let's not destroy it. It's not a threat to us. I mean, look how small it is... (points fingers at the viewscreen) It's tiny!"
(silence)
"It's not small, it's FAR AWAY!"

I'm going to go with the The Corbomite Maneuver or Q-Who.

And now that I've guess I'm going to go Google it.

Doesn't ring a bell for me. It seems like the sort of thing an undercover spy might say, though.

This one sounds familiar but I don't remember where it's from.

Actually it sounds like Zap Brannigan and Kif from Futurama.

Indeed. It might help if you know that it's two different people speaking.

The only one that occurs to me is Troi standing on the Romulan ship in that episode where she's a Romulan. And I seriously could not tell you the title.

That episode is called "Face of the Enemy."

Yep, that's the one. It's a Nic Corelli fiver.

Wow. Well, Wowbagger got the title, so it's his turn.

Wowbagger is next in both games! Does "two" qualify as a sweep?

No, it qualifies as someone who doesn't log in often enough *g*

Fortunately, Zeke messages me on Facebook to tell me "LOG IN YOU OLD POPSICLE!"

See, I thought NAHTMMM got the kill credit on this one, and all I did was get the +250 for the assist. But clearly I've been playing too much Tribes:Ascend, which is now free-to-play on Steam.

Ah! For some reason, this fiver made me laugh harder than any other fiver line ever, back when I was twelve or whatever.

"You call that a tricorder?"
"Put the spoon away"

Is that TNG's "First Contact," the episode?

If so, then it was a reference. Unless I'm way off, that joke originated not in a fiver at all, but in Paneldemonium.

Paneldemonium not technically a fiver? Because, yes -- that particular line is from Part 2.

I sort of assumed it was just fivers, but you have a point. There's lots of memorable content in other areas of the site. Let's broaden the thread's scope, then.

For instance (since it's my turn now), in Minutemen Part 1, I had a gag about the Guardian of Forever having waited SINCE BEFORE YOUR SUN BURNED HOT IN SPACE for its two guest fivers to be published. That was a followup joke -- the Guardian had mentioned these guest fivers before. Anyone remember where?

I didn't recall there being two instances of that joke, but I think the other is probably in a TJI. I definitely think the Guardian has cameoed in one of those.

Yes, it was a TJI. It would be silly to ask for the issue number or headline, so to count as a win, can you say what that one was about?
