159 has a couple that I'm pretty fond of.

My favorite, slightly edited:
"Who the [blazes] keeps plugging in the [blazes] light?"

When one of my programmers told me the program was "done:"
"We don't even have a robot built yet! The program won't be 'done' until the robot is on the field, and even then it will only be 'done' for 2 minutes!"

Of course, "Hand me that persuader!"

When asked, "where did you get the speed for that motor," I usually reply, "A PDOOMA graph, of course."

I'm sure there are a bunch that I'm forgetting, too.
