I like it when Artemis said:

I don't like lolipops.

It was totally random and stupid. Hehe.
All that jazz!

I love: "I never tell anybody exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared."
It's great for everyday use - the annoying people in my class at school think I'm some kind of genius (I'm not!), but they still pick on me. One day a girl in my class asked me what my IQ was, and I gave her the vampire grin and quoted those two sentences. She believed me, and I managed not to laugh until she was out of earshot!

Mine has to be one of the lollipop ones or the "Artemis simpletoon" ones. :laughing:

"I turned down gold butler! Me turn down gold!"- Artemis Fowl 2nd
"Yes though I've had little experience in this area, So I may have to read up on it." Artemis Fowl 2nd

(by the way these aren't included in the vote)
(Anyone who knows the link between all these phrases add me :laughing: )

Woah, the format here's messed up a bit. AF Lover, posting in 2015, is on page 1. Hmm.. Anyway, I love lollipops is a beautiful quote, but mentioned way too many times in the Artemis Fowl fandom. So...

I never tell anybody exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.

Seriously. My IQ isn't even that much above average. .-. But I do well academically and they, well... Kind of don't. Not to be mean but yeah. It's useful for when they think I'm some kind of genius, I won't delude myself but it is rather amusing to see their reactions.

There's actually a trope for that:

And Artemis, to his probable eternal shame, is listed as an example.

I love this quote from TLG:
"Holly was undeniably ten times the pilot he would ever be, and also several times more macho than he was. Artemis had once seen Holly get into a fistfight with another elf who said her hair looked pretty, because she thought he was being sarcastic, as she was sporting a fresh crew cut on that particular day."

It's not exactly a quote, but it's thought by Artemis, so I think it counts. I love this because I can just imagine Holly getting into a fight with someone because of a sincere compliment. Someone should write a story for that.
I'm fine, seeing as you asked.-Foaly
