* In the FiveEpisodePilot of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', when names are being given to the gargoyles that don't have any, the one who would be named Hudson argues against the ludicrousy of naming everything, asking if the sky and the river need names. He is then told that the river in question is called the Hudson River.

Sin took him seriously.

** Played for dramatic and sinister qualities when the Doctor tries to convince Davros, the creator of the Daleks, not to unleash his [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal]] creations on the universe. He compares the Daleks to a deadly virus, and asks Davros if he would release a disease that would exterminate all other forms of life. Davros's reply?
-->'''Davros:''' To hold in my hand the capsule that contains such power, to know that life and death on such a scale was ''my'' choice, to know that the tiny pressure of my thumb, enough to break the glass, would end ''everything'' . . . Yes, I ''would'' do it! That power would set me up above the gods! ''AND THROUGH THE DALEKS, I SHALL '''HAVE THAT POWER!'''''
