Funny: Artemis Fowl
  • "...I don't like lollipops..."
  • When Butler goes against his training and makes as much noise as he can (he's making a diversion). His shame over performing a spinning kick is just icing on the cake.
  • "This building has been hit by more lasers than the Millennium Falcon."
  • "That proves it....this must be a hallucination." ( Mind-wiped Artemis' reaction to the Bizarro Episode culminating in being saved by a talking rear end (Mulch Diggums hanging from a rope).
  • Artemis in jeans and a dumb t-shirt..
  • Just about every scene in the third book involving Pex and Chips.
  • "Quantum zombies. I'd like to get a copy of that program."
  • "Peace be inside me, tolerance around me, forgiveness in my path. Now, Mervall, show me where the filthy human is so I may feed him his organs"
  • Then there is this gem concerning the Kraken from the Time Paradox:
    Holly: So... you're saying that Shelly is going to light a fart?
    Foaly: No, I'm saying that Shelly is going to light THE fart!
    • Foaly then goes on to say that the last time this much bodily gas was in one location was at the last dwarf tribal gathering.
  • "One, don't call me Julius. Two, do what I say, horsey boy, or I'll have your budget slashed. And three, what in Frond's name is the cancan?"
  • "It's not a lemur, it's a monkey!"
  • Orion, since he's an expy of Don Quixote mixed with a Hormone-Addled Teenager.
    Holly: Can we please focus? We are supposed to be professionals.
    Orion: Not me! I'm just a teenager with hormones running wild. And I must say, young fairy lady, they are running wild in your direction.
    Holly: This had better not be a game, Artemis. If you do not have some serious psychosis, you will be sorry.
    Orion: Oh, I'm crazy, all right. I do have plenty of psychoses. Multiple personality disorder, delusional dementia, OCD. I've got them all, but most of all, I'm crazy about you.
    Foaly: That's not a bad line. He is definitely not Artemis.
  • "Look, I scraped an F for Foaly."
  • We should make a bivouac.
  • Holly's priceless response to a bit of obstructiveness by the LEP.
    Trouble Kelp: Sir no, is it? Your exact words were, and I quote—obviously since they are your exact words—you said that Artemis Fowl was 'crazier than a salt-water-drinking troll with ringworm.'
    Holly: That was earlier. I have shot Artemis twice since then, and he's fine now.
  • Everything N*1 says. EVERYTHING.
    No.1: I like swear toads. I have two at home named Bleep and D'Arvit. They are often very rude to me, but I know they don't mean it.
  • The entire conversation between Gobdaw (possessing Myles' body) and Artemis in The Last Guardian. Artemis essentially trolls Gobdaw into revealing himself after pretending his spirit had left Myles' body.
  • This bit from early in The Last Guardian:
    "Hey," snapped Holly. "This is not the time to blame Artemis."
    "Thank you," said Artemis."Finally."
    "There will be plenty of time to blame Artemis later, when this is resolved."
    • Especially funny because, for once, Artemis has done nothing wrong and is not even slightly at fault for the current situation.
  • "I am Butler. Everything I say sounds tough. Now, get out of the lake, fairy."
  • Myles and Beckett's reactions to Artemis putting a combination lock on his lab door - Myles works out the combination after three days of work and several rolls of toilet paper, and Beckett digs a bear trap for Myles and gives him the ladder in exchange for the code.
  • Artemis and Holly taunting Opal about their theft in The Opal Deception. Namely, gushing over her delicious truffles and how Mulch is really helping himself.
