The Quote Linking Game!
One person gives a quote and the next person has to find a quote that is linked to it in some way. The link can be anything from them actually having the same word to some obscure and complicated refrence. It's nice if people say where the quotes are from and maybe explain the connection if it's not obvios.

I'll start with:

"Things involving the computer fill me with a childlike terror. Now, if it were a nice ogre or some such, I'd be more in my element." -- Giles in some episode that I don't remember.

"Ah. A keyboard. How quaint."

I shouldn't need to say where that comes from.

Linus: "We had a good time at school today. Our teacher took us on a field trip. We went out and we saw this great big field. It was a real field, and we saw it! We stood right there and we saw that field!"
Charlie Brown: "Do you think you'll be going on any more field trips?"
Linus: "I doubt it. When you've seen one field, you've seen them all."
