->'''George:''' Alan... Alan... Just how stupid do you think the average man is, boy?\\
'''Alan:''' (sighing) I don't know, Uncle George. You tell *me*. How stupid *do* I think the average man is?\\
'''George:''' Pretty damn stupid, Alan. For over five hundred years there's been a Franchise/{{Superman}}. Since the Prime Superman of the Twentieth. Everyone knows that. Don't you imagine that the general populace might-- just might, mind you!--have figured out that, by the simplest laws of genetics and mathematics, there *has* to be more than one of us?\\
'''Alan:''' Of course, they know, Uncle George. Most of them. When they think about it. Which isn't often. Uncle George, don't *do* this. Please. Listen to me. As long as we don't rub their faces in it ... as long they see only one of us, a hero, they aren't threatened. It's easy for them to ignore the fact that there have to be others. They can even accept the existence of a ComicBook/{{Superboy}}. Or a ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}. But ... Rao's flames! There are over two hundred of us here! They'd never accept that! Never! You have to think of the Family!

->'''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]:''' Okay. All right. Letís admit defeat. Letís just go ahead, call in the troops, and let them raze Sunnydale. I have enough of a time keeping my own activities a secret, Kara. Do you honestly think we can keep the lid on things when the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]] come to town?\\
'''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}:''' Start making sense.\\
'''Buffy:''' I am! Do you know how strong most peopleís sense of denial is? In some cases, itís the only thing that keeps them going. Look. What do you think would be the effect when people all over the country learn that vampires really exist?\\
'''Supergirl:''' They already know a lot of evil things exist, Buffy. Super-villains, criminals, alien enemies from dozens of planets.\\
'''Buffy:''' True enough. But supposing they learn that there are really things out there in the night that want to kill them, suck their blood, and make them like a recruiting poster with Dracula pointing at Ďem and saying, ĎI Vant Youí?

'''Mr. Verres''': You know that man in the ambulance right now? The man capable of, and having ''already done'', absolutely horrible things? ''There is NOTHING special about him''. He's just an average jerk who, when younger, stumbled on a way to gain use of magic that ''almost anyone on the planet'' could use. You want a real-life, non-hypothetical example of ''why'' there's so much secrecy? It's lying in the back of that ambulance.\\

->One of [[FictionalUnitedNations the Council's]] primary duties is to keep the secret world and the mundane world discrete. Understand, we are not cover-up artists. We are not the enemies of enlightenment. Enlightenment is as vital to society as water is to life. But so too is water corrosive: too much, and it drowns life. Too much, and it rends the earth, destroys entire cities. We are the levy. We are the dam. We are the membrane. We hold back the tidal wave of enlightenment that would wash our world away.

'''Nanase''': I'm not sure how I feel about that.\\
'''Mr. Verres''': Whatever ''good'' general knowledge of magic could do, the potential ''damage'' is ''more''. Sometimes withholding information is the best thing you can do for people.

'''Robo:''' There's an assumption, I think, that being an [[TheAgeless ageless]] {{super robot}} [[Fiction500 billionare]] {{mad scientist}} [[IslandBase on a remote island]] makes me feel alone. It doesn't. But sometimes? That layer does.
