From "The Chicken of Tomorrow":

Mike: "Man, eggs are complicated. They should cost like a hundred dollars each!"

I don't know why it gets me, but it makes me laugh every time.

MST3k the Movie:

Joe: You know what my kids would say?
Crow T. Robot: YOU'RE NOT MY REAL FATHER?

And from the tech support skit:

"Are you in Europe?  Do you need an adapter?"

Several of the Movie riffs still make me cry with laughter, like when Exeter says "Well... there you have it." and they say "...a letter opener!"

or when Tom says "whooptey shit."

or in the episode "The Final Sacrifice" when the kid looks at the camera and someone makes this crazy noise like a witch.

or in the episode "Hobgoblins" when that dude gets back from his Military training, and meets his girlfriend on the lawn, he does a hip thrust, and the girl does this stupid little wiggle dance, and one of the riffers makes a squeaky sound... I almost DIED!!!

or the scene in "Overdrawn at the Memory Bank" when the old fat guy talks to Fingal around the pool, burping and farting all the while...

Still, one of my absolutely favorite lines from ANY MST3K episode is during the short called "Home Economics", as all the girls in the college gather for an assembly, and the dude behind the podium(Joel) says "Your period, and mine. A lecture..."

There are three riffs that I can think of off the top of my head that crack me up every time I hear them. They're not the cleverest riffs ever written, and I can think about them without laughing and wonder what makes them so funny, but when I'm actually watching the episode, I lose it. They are:

Manos:
The film opens, and Crow says, in a cheesy announcer voice, "Yes, it's Manos: The Hands of Fate!"

Mr. B Natural:
The part where the kid stands up at the dance and they do the rapidfire trumpet solo from the previous scene.

The Creeping Terror:
When the sheriff picks up the hat and someone (I think it was Servo, but I don't remember and it's been a while) says "What kind of a man-beast would wear this?"

I'm sure there are others.

Not only does this get me still, it has become a normal response of mine to anything that just goes on far too long.  Movies, tv shows, long days at work.  Heck it's spread to my family.  My brother, who I don't think has even seen this particular episode, went with me last month to a wrestling event.  Most of the event was good, but there was one tag team match that was just like death to watch and it just kept going.  In the last few minutes of it, he stood up and just started screaming "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!" at the ring.  You could tell there were a few MSTies in the crowd that night.

Another line that always gets me and I've quoted in real life many times (including shouting it back at the building as I walked away from my last day of high school) was a riff on Krankor in Prince of Space.  "You'll never defeat me, bye now!"

MOVIE: These handles are magnetized!

"And if your hands were made of metal, that would mean something."
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

I use that line whenever somebody says something that makes no sense.  I figure if they are bringing up computer stores while we are looking for a gas station, they deserve what they get.

And, of course,

"Normal view! Normal View! NORMAL VIEW! NORMAL VIEW!"

We sang that for YEARS.

An opener and a closer get me every time.

Opener: "Warrior of the Lost World".  Title credit comes up and Joel immediately busts out with an incredulous "Oh, I don't know..."

Closer: "Gunslinger".  End credits come up, Tom deadpans "Well, that was a turd, wasn't it?"

Simple little lines but they bust me up.

"I made for TV love you!" kills me in one of my faves, "San Francisco International".  I wish there were more Pernell Roberts movies in the Riffaverse, because they have his number.  "Toupe and Grey Weave - they're cops!"
