Ooh, this is way more fun than working!
I'm not at home and thus can't go grab all my copies to look for my favorite quotes, but here are a couple I dug up on Amazon's "look inside" feature:
From Archer's Goon:
All power corrupts, but we need electricity
When an irresistible force meets an immovable object, the result is a family fight.
One black eye deserves another
It pays to increase your word power
(Those are all from the Author's note).
Here's one that's too long, but I like it anyway, from a Tale of Time City:
Vivian stared. Never had she seen a boy with such long hair! In fact, she had a vague notion that boys were born with their hair short back and sides and that only girls had hair that grew long.
And I would love to quote something from the end of Homeward Bounders, but my amazon preview is only the first few pages. There are a couple of lines at the end that always make my heart ache.

Okay, you have tempted me out of lurking. This is one of my favourite lines from Deep Secret: ‘I never did like men who wear cravats. What’s wrong with an honest tie?’
But perhaps you have to be there.
