    I find that when people say certain things I have to always reply with a standard response.

    e.g.

    Them: "Sorry"
    Me: "You will be"

    Them: "No Ifs, no buts"
    Me: "No coconuts"

    Just wondering if anyone else has specific things they always have to say.

    When my partner asks for any money I owe him for bills, I always hand it over whilst saying "There you go darling. Buy yourself something nice." in an East London accent.

    He absolutely hates it :p :D

    When asked what you would like for dessert:

    I reply: "ice cream"
    Dad: "you scream"
    Brother: "everybody screams"

    Whenever someone points out a police officer while I am driving:

    "You'll never take me alive, copper." As I tool along five miles per hour below the speed limit.

    When people cuss I like to say "Hey, hey, no swear words... it gets me excited." ;)

    "We pay $129 per seat for FogBugz. I suggest that you use it."

    When people come to me saying, "Hey, have you seen this bug?" I always point to a sign in my office that says that.

    I can't help but answer the question asked.

    e.g.

    Them : "Do you know what time it is?"
    Me : "Yes"

    Or the one that really bugs me.

    When you meet somebody for the first time and a little later on they say.

    Them : "What did you say your name was?"
    Me : " I didn't, I told you what my name is!!!"

    (waving goodbye to someone)

    "Bye! Have fun storming the castle!"

    I either get confused looks, or if someone catches on, the exchange continues...

    Them: "Think it'll work?"
    Me: "It would take a miracle."
    Together: "Bye-bye!"

    Well if someone sings the first lines of "Come Sail Away" I have to finish the song. No wait, that's Eric Cartman.

    A few years ago at my previous place of employment, we had to deal with a civil engineering contractor named 'Copa Meica' (who incidentally were a right bunch of b***ards.)

    I couldn't get through the day without singing Copa Cabana by Barry Manilow!

    All together now...'her name was Lola she was a showgirl..'

    Probably one of those ones where you had to be there.

    'For f***s sake'

    ...when anything doesn't go as it should... particularly work. Erudite to the last syllable, me.

    i have a tendency to say "thats very postmodern" about anything even marginally ambiguous - regardless of wether it actually is postmodern. and in critiques i mention some element of someone's design or the typography being "sexy" at least once per class.

    Whenever someone asks me for something I usually say "no" while I proceed to perform whatever it was they had asked for.

    When asked, "How are you doing?" I always reply, "Everybody I can."

    Oh, and BV, that should be "fook," with a nice Irish lilt...

    "I'm better now"

    "I don't give a f*** I'll do it"

    "Jebus Xavier Christ!"

    Whenever I get in a car and I'm not driving:

    "*Destination* cabbie, step on it"

    "Uhhhh, you got food there?"

    "This is how poor people eat"

    I usually add in random semi-truck gear shifting noises while adjusting my belt. And random CB talk on the phone.

    I often claim that I'm a doctor, a professional, or an expert to justify morally ambiguous acts.

    There are a few in this thread I already do, some others are

    Them: "I just had a thought"
    Me: "Alert the media!"

    And

    Them: "I'm hot"
    Me: "That's a matter of opinion"

    There are quite a few more, I guess I'm a jerk.

    we rap in the office. when someone says something that has to do with a line in a song we either quote the lyrics or try to rap it. it is pretty funny!
