Haha, I'm glad to see someone else noticing his weird-ass speech patterns. :)
Meh, just like Captain Kirk, I could care less about his speech patterns, Sisko is probably
the only main character in a Trek series who could knock a God on his ass... wait a minute, he DID
knock Q on his ass! And guess what? Q never messed with DS9 ever again! If that isn't
a testament to his "badassery", then I don't know what is. ;)

Ugh. This and "irregardless".
VIVA IL ESORDIO DEL DIABETE ADULTO DUCE!!!

Man,  Data again?  This is going to be a confusing list compilation I think.

No it won't, that was the only modification that needed to be made.

*sigh* I hate to be "that guy", but there are a few mistakes in the Terminator and Ender writeups. For Ender, you refer to him as Bender several times. And for The Terminator, you rafer to the Arnold character as the T-1000 a few times
Considering the fact that a T-1000 became the governor of California, they appear to be correct

for example

Fixed

That scene was a great example of the difference between him and picard (although less so him and kirk i think).  I will say this out of all the captain (excluding ent since i didnt watch bakula) Sisko is the only one i would want as a captain.  The only one who would be good to lead you as a commander.  Picard is really a diplomat and as such i think he puts his crew at unnessicary risk at times and the whole surrendering thing REALLY irks me.  Kirk is a cowboy and puts himself and his crew at risk but comes at it from the other direction.

Because it's "hear, hear."  As in, "hear what this gentleman has just said!"  Not "come here, dog."
I've always been under the impression it's "hear, here", like "Hear what this person here has to say!"

Or it's just one of those things that doesn't translate well from spoken to written.

I'm bored and on Wikipedia right now:

Quote
Hear, hear

Hear, hear is an expression used as a short, repeated form of hear him, hear him. It represents a listener's agreement with the point being made by a speaker. It is often incorrectly spelled "here here".
 
It was originally an imperative for directing attention to speakers, and has since been used, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, as "the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons", with many purposes depending on the intonation of its user. Its use in Parliament is linked to the fact that applause is normally (though not always) forbidden in the chambers of the House of Commons and House of Lords.
 
The phrase hear him, hear him! was used in Parliament from late in the 17th century, and was reduced to hear! or hear, hear! by the late 18th century. The verb hear had earlier been used in the King James Bible as a command for others to listen.
 
Other phrases have been derived from hear, hear, such as a hear, hear (a cheer), to hear-hear (to shout the expression), and hear-hearer (a person who does the same).

That was actually a joke in The Phantom Tollbooth.

My best friends call me "Re-Tardis", but unfortunately, that's what my worst enemies call me too.
