->[[ViewersAreMorons People aren't very bright]], you know. They say they want freedom, but when they get the chance, they pass up Nietzsche and choose Hitler, because he would march into a room and [[EvilIsCool music and lights would come on at strategic moment]]s. It was rather like a rock 'n' roll concert.

->Of course I like Jane. I like [[Series/TheSopranos Tony Soprano]] and [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]], too. But liking someone doesn't change what they are. The key to dispelling the glamor of evil is to not confuse charisma with virtue.

->''Indeed, given the frequency with which the show is made up of philosophical conversations, generally ones in which {{Series/Hannibal}} leads someone inexorably towards the conclusion that they should embrace their most murderous selves, it comes spectacularly close to simply being murder propaganda.

->He was the first prominent American celebrity invited inside the nation-sized prison that is UsefulNotes/NorthKorea, and he did literally [[GoKartingWithBowser the least interesting thing possible with it.]] ''Sure, Kim Jong-un is a brutal dictator who starves and kills his own people. But he was pretty chill when we hung out!'' Dennis Rodman is a [[AttentionWhore Q-list celebrity]] willing to commit borderline treason just to hang out with a dictator who himself aspires to be a Q-list celebrity. It's all hilarious, until you remember there are millions of people who can't leave this Kingdom of the Absurd without taking a bullet to the head.

->Almost any Creator/BillMurray role fits on this list, but ''{{Film/Ghostbusters}}'' is one of the most lovable movies ever made, and 90 percent of that is Bill Murray's fault. If you actually look at the character of Pete Venkman, he's a borderline sex offender who uses electrical torture as a punchline. He tells presumably-dicked representatives of the Environmental Protection Agency that they have no dicks. He mocks the spirits of the dead in a world where he knows they can hear him. If Bill Murray wasn't a comic genius we'd probably be asking why someone made a movie out of some script they found on death row.

->10 years of police and undercover work, millions of dollars spent, 2 years in trial, and we are left with the biggest debacle of the court since the OJ Simpson trial. Another flaw I would say is present in the movie is (Sidney) Lumet has obviously [[FriendlyNeighborhoodGangster fallen for the charm of the Luchese crime family]] much like the jury of the trial has. Lumet films them as the good guys fighting against a corrupt and '''''EEEEEEEVVVVVIIIIILLLL''''' District Attorney and shows their fight as something triumphant. Even he seems to forget the fact that these guys are murderers, drug dealers, rapists, thieves, and just about every other vile crime in the books. No matter how much Lumet wanted to present these guys as charming and lovable, I felt sick to my stomach that [[KarmaHoudini these guys fooled so many people and that none of them were really punished.]] Speaking from someone who grew up loving the law and fascinated by the law, this was a despicable display in the courtroom.

->The guy who hates me for lulz. Guy who nearly ruined my life. But somehow, even I had started to buy into his PR. That’s just how good the spin was. Even I mistook the sociopath for a misunderstood outcast...the side-effect of so many good people supporting his case was that more and more people in tech came to also like him. And they all seemed to think that it was All Good as long as they punctuated each article with the obligatory 'sure, he’s an ass' or 'and yes, he’s a {{troll}}' or 'he’s known for offending people' (which are, for most men, [[TestosteronePoisoning compliments]]). In other words, they took the Worst Possible Person, as one headline read, and still managed to reposition him as merely a prankster, a trickster, a rascal. And who doesn’t like a '[[LovableRogue lovable scoundrel]]'?

->Those people knew about the allegations and they still went, so the fact that I ate oatmeal with blueberries instead of a buttery [=PopTart=] for breakfast is a more shocking development than those people clapping at Creator/BillCosby’s rape joke. Bill Cosby thinks he lives on a 50,000 foot high mountain of Pudding Pops and is untouchable...A heckler was kicked out for screaming, “You’re a rapist,” at him.

->This is not just the case of a terrible crime. It is not the crime alone that has raised the fury of public hatred. It is the case of a daring challenge to society. It is the fact that a crime has been committed by one man, alone; that this man knew it was against all laws of humanity and intended that way; that he does not want to recognize it as a crime and that he feels superior to all. It is the amazing picture of a man with no regard whatever for all that society holds sacred, and with a consciousness all his own. A man who really stands alone, in action and in soul.... Other people do not exist for him, and he does not see why they should. -->--'''Creator/AynRand''' on convicted killer William Edward Hickman

->The audience was mesmerized by [[Creator/MarlonBrando Brando]] and so found Blanche--his {{foil}}--somewhat ridiculous. At the time even [[TennesseeWilliams Tennessee]] agreed that Brando's appearance in the theater was unique and there was no way that Jessica Tandy could compete with him. She seemed all [[HystericalWoman tics and mannerisms]] while he was the [[RatedMForManly male principle writ large]]. Tennessee, who loved glory almost as much as his inventions, made no fuss then or later.

->I'm trying to clearly distinguish between Creator/TomFelton, who is a good looking young boy, and Draco, who, whatever he looks like, is not a nice man. It’s a romantic, but unhealthy, and unfortunately all too common delusion of girls...it actually [[MisaimedFandom worried me a little bit]], to see young girls swearing undying devotion to this really imperfect character...I mean, I understand the psychology of it, but it is pretty unhealthy.
