->'''Nelson Mandela:''' Someone gave me this note when I was leaving Boi Patong, and I want to read it to you. ''[reads from note]'' It says, "No peace; do not talk about peace. We have had enough. Please, Mr. Mandela, no peace. Give us weapons, not peace." ''[puts note aside]'' Here is my answer There is only one way forward...and that is peace.

As long as I am your leader, I am going to tell you, always, when you are wrong. And I tell you now, you are wrong. I have given my life to the struggle, I have been willing to die, I have lost 27 years of my life in prison. But I tell you now, I have forgiven them. If I can forgive them, then you can forgive them. We cannot win a war, but we can win an election. So, my people; stay home, be peaceful, and when Election Day comes...vote!

->''"I've found the whole "fake geek girl" thing alternately interesting and depressing, so there's a quest about it in Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. It's called 'Fake Geek Guy,' because my writing is about as subtle as a sledgehammer. To the face. Of your grandmother."''

->''"A particular trademark of the [[VerySpecialEpisode VSE]] is that it can't be trusted to deal with substance abuse issues without turning into a hysterical, hand-flapping PSA, like those after school specials where a straight-A bookworm takes one whiff of second-hand pot smoke and immediately joins a murderous biker gang before launching themselves from the highest building in the city, because they can flyyyyy! More of a warning campaign to the nation's youth than an actual plot device for the characters to explore, these episodes speak with [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle old men's voices from teenage mouths]], trying to impart the notion on a young audience that kids would turn their backs on someone who smoked a cigarette or offered a beer at a party, because that's just the uncoolest thing ever, dude."''
