Handy Phrases for Troops

I have not trooped in a while, and I did one this weekend that was my best troop ever. I have a voice amp that is handy for interacting with folks as they take pictures. My first couple of troops, I tried to do variations of Boba Fett's lines in ESB. This last time, I came up with some new phrases that got better reactions. I'll share a few, but I am interested in hearing if anybody else has some sayings they lean on.
1) You look like my kind of scum.
2) [Read shirt] I don't think I've been to that system.
3) Which system are you from?
4) [For young kids] you look like a future bounty hunter.
5) How big is the price on your head?
6) You would look good... frozen in carbonite.
7) [For couples] Would you turn her [him] in for the credits? I would.
8) [For people taking pictures] Scans make my trigger finger itchy.
9) You make my trigger finger itchy.

When they hand the people a blaster for the pictures:
1) Watch where you point that thing.
2) Careful with that blaster. You might get... disintegrated.

I found that having these at the ready made things go a lot more smoothly. Anyone else have any phrases at the ready?

Those are great! Do you have a voice changer too?
I actually don't. I have found that just making my voice gravelly seems to work. I don't try the Kiwi accent because I am an old school, Jason Wingreen kind of guy.

Honestly, the way that I learned to "be Fett" is from watching Fett at Disneyland. You have to be able to improvise, but having some canned phrases go a long way to that. I lifted, "You look like my kind of scum" directly from him. Even though it is a Jabba quote... it works.

Also, economy is key. You don't want to talk too much. Most of the quotes above are both conversation starters and enders... which is why being prepared with the right phrases is key. I am interested to see what everyone else does. I have only been at it a couple of years.

I’m not sure I would be game enough to do these phrases. I could probably pull off the Kiwi accent but it would sound odd with a female voice. I’d probably go pre recorded phrases.

Fett is character of few words, manourisims and attitude. The "as you wish" sound bite works well in any situation. TRamp have sound bites recorded by JB himself although not screen accurate they also work well. Phrases like "keep moving" and "your tough but not tough enough"

I was wondering if anyone had other phrases he had done. Seems like we could pull from other sources with his voice.
