* From the ''Literature/{{Halo|The Flood}}'' novelization and the terminals in ''Anniversary'': [[spoiler:Keys, Jacob, Captain,Service number 01928-19912-JK. Although this could also be considered "anti-madness mantra" in that repeated this to keep the flood from assimilating his memories of Earth's location.]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', [[spoiler:after Guilty Spark finally completely loses it, all he can do (aside from firing his FrickinLaserBeams) is repeat "UNACCEPTABLE!!"]]
** One of the [[ApocalypticLog terminals]] in ''Anniversary Edition'' shows a record of Captain Keyes being absorbed into the the [[BodyHorror Flood]] [[TheAssimilator Gravemind]] [[AndIMustScream Protoform]] from Keyes's point of view. Believing that he's being tortured by the Covenant and [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind attempting to fight back]] as he begins to forget who he is, he begins chanting the information on his dog tag (which, consequentially, is both his identity and the only information soldiers are allowed to reveal when being interrogated by the enemy). Its pretty disturbing, especially since it is ''not'' what you expect from the terminals.
