"Quotes are where you copy what someone has said. So you aren't the first one to say the word 'one' but someone can still quote you for saying it."

Very true, but what if I said a really famous quote? For instance, if I said to my son, "Luke, I am your father"

That doesn't make it my quote. It's still a quote from Starwars and is suppose to be credited appropriately.

Or they could just say 'unknown' but yes, I suppose you're right.

Context: ten seconds to self destruct.

Picard: "Computer, cancel self-destruct."

Computer: "Does Riker, William T. concur?"

Riker: "Yes, absolutely. I do indeed concur wholeheartedly!"

Picard: "Yes would suffice."

Riker: "I didn't want to risk a misunderstanding."

I love that part XD

Me with a friend at another friends house. This was a sleep over mind you and we're all good friends. And male. Bad things happen when genders mix.

"What would you do if a burglar were to break in the front door right now?"

Nick: "Punch him in the face and tie him up."

Ross: *Points at scissors on table nearby.* "Grab those scissors and go for the nuts."

Me and Nick: "And if it's a girl?"

Ross: "Two snips a little higher."
