Favorite FMA Quotes [minor spoilers]
What are your favorite quotes from FMA? I find the writers to be ingenious and what the characters say can sometimes be very deep or just plain cool, so I figured I'd see what everyone's favorite quotes are. I'll start off:
"I am the man who has betrayed the ways of God"
Also, make sure to include who said the quote. You can also add the episode it was in and other optional information if you want.

"I am not an ordinary alchemist" -Ed Elric, end of Episode 21
Also all of Ed's famous responses (outbursts) when he is called short; there were a few of them, really funny, but would be somewhat hard to locate. Also Ed's argument with Winry over milk in episode 23!

Wow this post is old but I'm posting my favorite quotes anyway. ^.^
“If I died the world would continue to move along as if nothing had happened.”
“Because you’re just a small part of it.”
“When the small part in this case me, dies, the body remains.”
“Water, Carbon, Ammonia, Lime, Phosphorous, Salt, Saltpeter, Sulfur, Magnesium, Fluorine, Iron, and Aluminum right?”
“Right. The body’s only a combination of those simple elements. Nothing more. We’re destined to be decomposed by bacteria, and become nutrients for plants, then you follow the process further, those plants nourish herbivores.”
“And those herbivores nourish carnivores. Even others like us. And even though we lose awareness our lives keep on moving through the system.”
“The great flow that maintains the universe, call it the cycle of life, the course of nature each one of us is just a small part of that part. One in the all. Yet without all the individual ones, the all can’t exist. This world flows by following grander laws that we can’t even imagine. To recognize that flow, to work in it. To decompose, and recreate, that is alchemy.”
~Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric~ Episode All is One, One is All from Full Metal Alchemist
The cycle of life only goes one direction, not even alchemy can change that.

"just a matter of time rose. science will find a way. science is the answer to everything. if i were you, i'd drop the scriptures and pick up an alchemy book. we're the closest things to gods there are."
" you're not a god. you're nothing close to it"
"and niether is the sun. it's just a mass of hydrogen. get close to it like cornello claims, and all you'll do is burn up."
i like that ed is an athiest!

Almost all of these are from episode 13:
Roy Mustang: When I'm Führer, there will be changes! That day...*strikes dramatic pose* all female officers will be required to wear - TINY MINISKIRTS!
Jean Havoc: YOU'RE A MIRACLE, MUSTANG! (hugs Mustang's leg) I'LL FOLLOW YOU FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!
Roy Mustang: Yes! (still posing)
<---- This scene.
Roy Mustang: (snatches puppy from Kain Fuery's arms) Dog, huh? (pause) I LOVE DOGS!
Kain Fuery: Really? You mean it?!
Roy Mustang: OF COURSE! Dogs embody loyalty! They follow their master's commands above all else! Be a jerk to them and they don't complain and they never once beg for a paycheck! Trust me, Fuery, they're the great servants of man! (sings) LOYAL CANINE, HOW WE SALUTE THEE!
Maes Hughes: In the red corner...The Flame Alchemist and hero of the Eastern Rebellion...Colonel Roy Mustang! Give it up!
Random Audience Member: You just want a promotion!
Random Audience Member: Give me back my girlfriend!
Al: So what's your strategy?
Ed: I told you, a fist in his face!
Ed: (surrounded by a barrage of explosions) Just wait till I stop running! (runs into the crowd) Sorry!
Roy: I guess I can't torch you all...(loudly) This is hard; he's such a small target!
Ed: (stops in his tracks and bursts out of the crowd) WHO'RE YOU CALLING SMALL!?
Roy: If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate. (snaps again setting off bomb)
(Everyone goes flying)
Ed: YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING!
Roy: Okay, maybe I overdid it....
And of course, the classic Armstrong quotes:
Major Armstrong: (to Scar) Don't pray just yet, you're facing the technique that's been passed down the Armstrong line for generations, that's hardly a blessing!
Armstrong: (holding a sketch of Dr. Marcoh) This is the artistic talent that has been passed down the Armstrong line for generations!
Armstrong: Edward Elric! (takes off shirt and poses) How dare you speak to your elder with such blatant disrespect! Let ME remedy this fight with my genteel decorum!
Armstrong: (with tear filled eyes, hugs Edward) I've heard your whole story, Edward Elric! Your pure love that made you try and bring back your mother! And the strength of your love that allowed you to throw away your own life to transmute your little brother's soul! (tries to hug Ed again) I AM MOVED!
And more Ed-reactions to short comments:
Ed: WHO THE HELL IS THE ULTRA-SIZED FLEA SHRIMP?
Al: Brother he'll die if you do anymore to him!
(Ed looks sleepy, then looks at Al.)
Ed: Anyway, who are these guys?
Al: (to himself) So it was only a subconscious reaction from hearing shrimp?
Pinako: Is it just me, or since the last time I saw you, Ed... have you gotten a lot smaller?
Ed: Who're you calling "small," you half-pint hag?!
Pinako: What did you call me, you little runt?!
Ed: You heard me, guppy geezer!!
Ed: Micromini granny!!
Edward: I'M NOT LITTLE! DON'T CALL ME MIDGET! OR SHORTY! OR SHRIMP!
People of Liore: (fleeing from an attacking Edward) We didn't say any of that!
And finally, my fav quote of all time.
