Signing Off An Email With 37 Pieces Of Flair

I was customizing my email settings for this blog when I ran into a wall. What should be my standard email sign off/signature? This caused way more turmoil than it should have. It is such a simple thing, but it needs to be intentional.

My personal email signature is “Later Be” which is a reference to a friend’s script from back in film school. It is a shortening of “See you later. Be good.” At work, it is my full name, rank, and serial number…I mean title and phone number.

I decided it needed to be something geeky, nerdy, and/or a movie reference while still being something appropriate as an email sign-off. I tried googling for some suggestions and found their lack of quality disturbing.


Here it the list I came up with with the :

  1. I’ll be in my bunk [Firefly]
  2. Have fun storming the castle [Princess Bride]
  3. To infinity and beyond [Toy Story]
  4. Never say die [Goonies]
  5. This Is Ellen Ripley, Last Survivor Of The Nostromo, Signing Off! [Alien]
  6. Player two has left the game [Shaun of the Dead]
  7. This concludes our broadcast day [Cable Guy]
  8. Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club [duh]
  9. Exit pursued by a bear [Shakespeare – A Winter’s Tale]
  10. So long and thanks for all the fish [Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy]

I’m not entirely happy with the choices, but I think I will go with “I’ll be in my bunk” until something better comes along. I’m open to suggestions so feel free to make them in the comments section.
