->'''Mei Ling''': Come on, Snake! [[BellisariosMaxim Don't get all grumpy and start talking about how unscientific it is.]] Science is basically just another form of magic that makes our lives easier.\\
'''Snake''': I never thought I'd hear that coming from you, Mei Ling.\\
'''Mei Ling''': Don't you think talking to someone halfway around the world is a kind of magic? Or flying across entire continents?\\
'''Snake''': No. I think this is ''completely different.''

->''"You know, Merlin, up until this moment, despite Saint Zherneau's journal and the other documents, I haven't really been able to wrap my head around what you mean when you talk about 'advanced technology.' Maybe that's because I haven't really tried to. I've been too concerned, too focused, on just surviving to really try to imagine what the future--or maybe I should say the past--could have been like. I guess the fact that you're alive, and the incredible things I've seen you do, should have given me a clue, but to be honest, I've still thinking of you like ''Seijin'' Kohdy. You're not 'technology,' not something one of Howsmyn's mechanics might've designed or built if they'd only had the right collection of nuts and bolts and the right wrench. You're ''magic''--any ninny could tell that! But now--"''

->''"The essence of magic is to determine the root cause of all things. There's no distinction between science and magic. The power of magic is like those of science. Meaning, it's at the forefront of the times!"''

->''"For values of 'turning you into a MagicalGirl' equal to 'you having a costume that protects you and operates on principles most people won't understand, and wielding equipment that few on Earth have ever seen, let alone held,' yes, this will turn you into a magical girl!"''

->''Cell phone. You talk in here and someone far away hears you. No wires. Impossible. Even thirty years ago, this would have belonged in [[MuseumOfTheStrangeAndUnusual The Library.]] Three hundred years ago, you would've been burned at the stake for it. Some of the items in The Library violate the known laws of science. But that is only because our brains are so small... we haven't come up with laws... to explain them.''

->'''Nazi Officer''': And I suppose you still aim to win this war through magic?\\
'''Red Skull''': ''Science'', but I understand your confusion. [[StealthInsult Great power has always baffled primitive men.]]

->''When will Hollywood learn that sometimes keeping a mystery is a good thing? Inevitably when we talk about a reason for immortality is alien technology or a god (or magic which leads to a god). Whether you choose aliens (''[[Film/HighlanderIITheQuickening Highlander 2]]'') or a god/magic (''Film/HighlanderTheSource'') your story is still crap.''

->'''Mara''': Man, technology is incredible... Are you sure you're not magically powered somehow?\\
'''Yamato''': Well, all sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic. But no, technically I'm a science chick.\\
'''Mara''': By that definition everything in you is magic to me. And I can't even comprehend the fact that I'm, technically speaking, in you right now even as I speak to what appears to be all of you... Been a rough few days for my rationale, for sure."
