* Garion's catchphrase in Creator/DavidEddings's ''Literature/TheBelgariad'', which the other characters quickly become tired of, is "[[IJustWantToBeNormal Why me?]]" Eventually answered as "Would you have trusted anyone else to do it?", but not before various other characters have taken it up briefly. In one scene Belgarath (who's TheObiWan, and usually the one being asked and not answering), says it, much to everyone's amusement.
