'''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. I know that is not what you want to hear, but there is no other way. I am your leader, and as long as I am your leader I am going to give you leadership! 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."''

->''"...Chris Carter is not a subtle writer. While he is a phenomenal producer, a great ideas man and a wonderful director, Carterís writing can occasionally seem just a little bit too heavy-handed. ''{{Series/Millennium}}'' features a character bluntly confronting all the darkness in the world, called [[PropheticName Frank Black]]. He retreats from the darkness into a big yellow house. The dialogue can occasionally be a bit on the nose, particularly when Frank explains his visions to Beltcher. ''ďItís my gift. Itís my '''[[BlessedWithSuck curse]]'''.Ē'' Itís no wonder that ''Series/MadTV'' chose to parody that line for ''[[Series/SuddenlySusan Suddenly Millennium]]''."''

->''"Finding the word ''[[AC:Torchwood]]'' smeared in blood on the wall by a pair of corpses with their throats slit is a gruesomely memorable image but all the pomp and circumstance around it blunts the impact. The episode should have begun without Torchwood even present, panning across the room slowly, past the bodies and onto the wall to reveal the message. '''"Your name written in their bloodÖ [[ViewersAreMorons you did this Captain Jack Harkness!]]"''' -- the subtlety bus missed this town."''
