->I just don't understand why. What was the point of this? Of [[spoiler:being lied to? Of thinking someone loved me and having them actually not, of just using me]]? What's the point of that? Was it a lesson? Was I supposed to learn something?

->We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell them stories that don't go anywhere. Like the time I took the ferry to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. Give me five bees for a quarter you'd say. Now where were we, oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, [[SoGoodWeMentionedItTwice which was the style at the time]]. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

->''"Nothing keeps a story alive more than an ending no one likes. When a big story ends with a thud, people will always wonder how it could have been done better. What happened with this Clone Saga is a prime example of how not to do a story, or a ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' story."''
-->--'''Editor/Writer Glenn Greenberg''' on ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga''

->''"Mary Jane, once to be praised for being long-suffering and basically always putting up with [[SpiderMan her husband]], suddenly seems like she should’ve [[KnowWhenToFoldEm gone out for cigarettes]] and never came back years ago, if this is how their relationship was going to end up."''

->''"The plot is so flimsy it's painful, like a man with no bones in his arms [[ServiceSectorStereotypes trying to serve you coffee]]... the plot is like a recent car accident victim: staggering back and forth with bits of windscreen in its face for a while before finally collapsing and bleeding out into a roadside ditch. "''
-->--'''''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation''''' on ''KaneAndLynch2DogDays''

->''"There's no final boss, no climatic showdown or escape sequence, or melodramatic twists. The game just ends right when they run out of ideas...And you know what? This is a problem that ''{{VideoGame/Doom}}'' avoided simply by having no story at all. BRILLIANT! Y'know, maybe this should be, like, a rule or something: [[CaptainObvious Don't make a story driven game if your story isn't very good.]] ''Rage'' doesn't just end when those credits roll; it dies."''
