->The entire crime-writing fraternity yesterday bade a tearful farewell to the last [[LockedRoomMystery "locked room" mystery]] at a large banquet held in it's honor. . . . DCI Chymes then gave a glowing eulogy before being interrupted by the shocking news that the 'locked room' concept had been 'murdered' -- and in a locked room.

->Everybody thinks they can book goddamn [[UsefulNotes/ProfessionalWrestling wrestling]] now--because they '''[[OpenSecret know]]''' it's booked--better than the people than the people who are booking it. And you know, in some cases they're '''right!''' ...Back in the 50's the fan-dancers were hot, right? Now you can see gonzo porn on the internet where 80 guys are fuckin' cumming on some chick's face. So you don't really wanna see the girl hiding behind the fuckin' flower fan anymore.

->''"As a spiritual sequel to ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Angel One]]'', this is a planet of women who are [[StrawFeminist highly sexed and yet completely deadly]] -- I thought we had left this kind of sexist nonsense behind us in [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries The Original Series]] but here it is"''

->"A Piece of the Action" is a very well-loved piece of ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]''. More than that, it is a very well-known piece of ''Star Trek''. Even people with only a passing familiarity with the franchise will recognise the episode premise -- “[[PlanetOfHats planet of the gangsters]]” is the sort of goofy sci-fi premise that sticks in the head, much like “planet of the Nazis” or “planet of the Romans.” The image of Kirk and Spock in fedoras stalking around a studio back lot is quintessential goofy ''Star Trek'' imagery.\\\
It is the kind of premise that his hard to duplicate twenty or thirty years later. When ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' wanted to do a gangster episode or a western episode, it used the holodeck as a narrative short cut. The idea of completely imaginary people in a computer simulation was more plausible than a planet full of human-like aliens that had conveniently arranged their culture around some relic from mankind’s history. You could not get away with something like "A Piece of the Action" or "Patterns of Force" on any of the later ''Star Trek'' shows. When the third season of ''Enterprise'' attempts to do a “[[SpaceWestern western on an alien planet]]” in "North Star", the entire show seems to creak under suspension of disbelief.

->When I watched ''Film/TheNeverEndingStory'' again recently, nearly 25 years later, the clichés were never more evident. Maybe I'm too cynical these days, but I found myself constantly questioning the film. Why does there always have to be a '[[TheChosenOne chosen one]]'? Why is there always some [[DeusExMachina insanely powerful trinket]] that can do pretty much anything the wearer wants? Why are fantasy lands always ruled by [[TheKingdom a single person?]] And why is that person always either [[EvilOverlord a tyrant]]—with an army of dark-colored creatures that can't talk—or [[TheGoodKing completely benevolent]], causing rainbows and unicorns to appear by his or her mere presence?

->Right, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger! Or maybe, what doesn't kill you [[{{Metaphorgotten}} is just killing you slowly?]]...The rebuttal to the cliché is, itself, now a cliché. That's how cliché it is.

->ZombieApocalypse'' was ''old hat. Now it's a dusty, torn-up section of brim that came off an old hat because the rest of the old hat was eaten by a Stegosaurus.

->''Stories about shops like these are so common they have become a meta-cliché -- there are enough tales in which the protagonists are ''aware'' such shops are a cliché to fill a decent anthology.''
