->''"Kids, we just have to learn to accept this. Like one of those stories on ''Dateline'', where a family member suffers a horrible accident and becomes a burden on everybody. Sure, they pretend to be happy, but they're dead inside. They're dead. And that'll be our lives."''
-->-- '''Lois''', ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''

->''"[[BuffySpeak The swirly sphere]] ascends and flies out into space, leaving the ravaged Earth behind, where seven billion people made fully dependent on a highly technological supply chain over the course of several generations have now been plunged into a barbarous, nightmare dark age sure to inaugurate a millennium of murder, brutality, and misery. But... Jaden Smith called Creator/JenniferConnelly "Mom"! So that counts as a happy ending, r-right?"''

->''When all is said and done, Arisa really hasn't taken any steps towards recovery, and in fact still seems very invested in what can only be called an emotionally unhealthy (or even abusive) relationship. This drastically affects the enjoyability of the series' finale, bringing it into territory that, while sadly not unfamiliar in shoujo manga, had at least been absent previously.''

This is a movie about a kid whose love for music is transmorphed into something [[EveryoneIsSatanInHell quote-unquote]] [[RottenRockAndRoll evil]] by his paranoid parents until he is turned into a [[TheFundamentalist raving, bigoted fanatic]] who loses his friends, his personality, and any sense of independence.''
-->-- '''Creator/BradJones''', [[WebVideo/DVDRHell reviewing]] ''Film/RockItsYourDecision''. The movie is ''supposed'' to be about God guiding a teenager away from sinful music.
