Did you know Zapp Brannigan was based on Captain Kirk? Brannigan is arrogant, oblivious, and rude, but that's exactly why we love him on Futurama. Here are the greatest Zapp Brannigan quotes of all time, ranked by your votes.

When Leela told Brannigan it was a mistake to sleep with him, Zapp replied with, "A sexy mistake." Many of Zapp's best quotes prove just how dumb he is. Take the time he was introducing himself, for example: "I am the man with no name. Zapp Brannigan at your service." Another great Zapp Brannigan quote involves him demonstrating his competency as a captain: "When I'm in command, every mission is a suicide mission."

    Congratulations, Captain

    Zapp Brannigan: Don't blame yourself, Kif. We were doomed from the start. I guess all that remains now is for the captain to go down with the ship.

    Kif: That's surprisingly noble of you, sir.

    Zapp Brannigan: No, it's noble of you, Kif. As of now, you're in command. Congratulations, Captain.
