We had a few:

Our favorite:  "It is intuitively obvious to the most casual observer..."

Visiting Polish Professor:  "Next, we examine how to calculate IMPY DANCE"
::looking around room::
::noticing the guy in front of me actually wrote "IMPY DANCE" in his notes::
::light bulb finally goes on::
oh!  Impedance!

Lab assistant from China: "For this lab, you will need to calculate etch and this is vital.  Etch is an important and a difficult task". 
Me: ::looks around::
::everyone is nodding::
Me: ::raises hand::
Me: "What is etch"?
Lab assistant from China: "You don't know what etch is and you are in college?  How can that be?"
He proceeds to draw a huge ****ing "H" on the blackboard.  H = Height of course and everyone laughed.  I didn't.

"If you accidentally blow up your BJT" (bipolar junction transistor) "you will go home with a burnt BJT - you will not get another".
Note:  BJT's were about $.19 list price at the time.

We actually tried to put equations to this Professor quip:  "You will find it is either twice as less or half as much".

There you go...I have more but this should get us started.

I had one Poli-Sci prof (he was a guy who looked a bit like Vince Lombardi - although he was from North Carolina ... he used to always say:

"It's like they say in Russia.... tough shisky".     It could be anything - or about anything, include the topic of the day.

I had another prof - a Ukrainian guy - he used to use the term 'za boom booms' all of the time - and it was almost always talking about the topic ... he was a bit insane; I think he was in the war (WWII)- not sure which side he was on - but I suspect that it was not the Soviet side.  He was one of those guys that wanted you to write a 15 page paper weekly (back in the days when all you had to write with was an electric typewriter and a whole lot of correction tape.).  I was lucky enough to have a correction cassette for the type writer that I had -that liquid stuff was the worst Tongue Cheesy

I had a software engineering professor that was big into user interface design (this was about 1990 or so) and would always talk about the "whole mouse button thingy" while holding both of his hands up and flexing his fingers. He would do this about four or five times a class.

My university philosophy professor used to like to talk about double hermeneutics.

We used to think it was hilarious to go into a bar and order a double hermeneutic. In retrospect though, we were just being twats.
