I played through SC1 single and multiplayer, but aside from the GB crew discussions, I never heard that the phrase is something that is representative of the character. 
 Apparently, neither did Blizzard...

It's the one phrase that I've always associated with Jimmy since he says it every time you click on him. Even before every one started to use it recently I still had that one simple phrase branded into my brain when it comes to StarCraft.

How does this matter?  It's obviously just something they and quite a few others heavily associate with him, it doesn't really matter how iconic or symbolic of StarCraft it is, haha.

Jeff has always said it a lot, so it kind of became a meme. Don't see what's wrong with that.

"You wanna a piece of me" 
 
Sometimes when I played the game for to long it started to sound like: You want a piece of meat? XD

Probably not Iconic but I always get a kick out of having Jim Raynor as the voice that picks up when my phone is turned off going "This is Jimmy. Mr. Petersen can't come to the phone at the moment so leave him a message and he will get back to you once we get back from murdering some nasty bugs"  
I've felt cool ever since Starcraft 1 because I had Robert Clotworthy doing that for me (back then I was just a fan and didn't work as a reviewer). 
Then I found out he cheated on me and has done it for many people :(  
  
I'm glad that I've been able to keep that soundfile for all that time though. I have a 1gb USB Key now that's just dedicated to that one single file.  
Sadly it's not iconic enough for other people to get it besides the gamer friends and family who are gamers.  
So that's only like 2 friends (I don't have many people I call "friends") and my mom and dad who knows who Jimmy even is.

"Carrier has arrived."

 
There are many quotes people associate with StarCraft and "This is Jimmy" is one of them.

"I'm waitin' on youuuu."
 
"Fire it up."
 
"You gonna give me orders."
 
All are instantly identifiable with Starcraft for me.

@Cataphract1014:  
It's so weird how just reading these phrases to myself can bring back the memories of Starcraft.  I just read them once and I immediately remember how it was said by the units in the game. 
 
"Not enough minerals."

So far the voice work isn't as good for units I feel, mostly for the old units, and no "This is Jimmy" is pretty much a travesty.

I thought Vinny's theoretical ending sounded awesome. 
 
*rubble*
*fade to black*
...This is Jimmy.
*credits*
 
I think Tychus' "Damn, Jimmy..." is the new "This is Jimmy" of Starcraft II, though.

- "You must construct additional pylons."
- "We require more vespene gas."
- "E-RAD-I-CATE."
- "Stat!"
- "Battlecruiser operational."
- That noise the Ghost's nuke laser made when he started targeting.
- Any number of the Zergling's weird animal noises.
 
Those spring to mind when I think about Starcraft. I think the whole "This is Jimmy." thing is a good meme, if a little forced.

"Ghost reportin'."
"Slammin'."
"De-lited-to-SIR!"
"You got somethin' on your mind?"
"Yeah yeah, I'm goin'."
"What do you want?"
"Wraith awaiting launch orders."
"Explorer reporting!"
God... I could go on for days.

I always liked it when he said, "Jimmy's here."  But for real, he has to say it at SOME point.

"My life for Aiur" is porbably my most recognizable phrase, but "This is Jimmy" is close 
 
Hopefully the new one for Starcraft 2 will be "In the rear with the gear"

One of my new favorites from SC2 so far is the Viking's saying: "Fight or flight, yeah right".

Fan of that one and the ghost, "Solo operative, right?"  Something about the voice actor really makes me like that line.

The phrases I've grown to associate with StarCraft is...
"Goliath online."
"Ghost reportin'"
"Ready to roll out!"
 
I made a lot of goliaths, siege tanks, and ghosts.
