->Due to the growing number of the live audiences booing [[Wrestling/JohnCena Cena]], Wrestling/KurtAngle began to [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain speak negatively about black people]] in an attempt to get Cena some cheers during their feud. Along with this he turned his back on the troops and refused to perform at ''Tribute to the Troops'', took Daivari (who was last seen with mega heel [[EvilForeigner Muhammad Hassan]]) as his manager, and said he hated Jesus. ("Who did he ever beat?") Kurt '''''still''''' got a considerable amount of cheers over Cena.

->I love the founder of ''Deadspin'', Will Leitch. He's a good friend and usually a reasonable human being. But every fucking October, he morphs into an eight-year-old wearing a propeller beanie and shooting marbles on the living room floor. GOLLY GEE GUYS ISN'T CARDINALS BASEBALL JUST THE BESTEST?! And the worst part is that, whenever you tell Leitch to ''[[FanHater GO TO HELL]]''', he acts like ''you're'' the asshole!

->I can watch Cyclops objectively make the right choice, and fight for his woman, and help the school, and stand up as a reliable pillar of virtue and good intentions, but that doesn't matter, because {{Wolverine}} smokes, and {{smoking is cool}}.

->Wolverine wouldn’t be Wolverine if he didn’t have Cyclops to rebel against. I’d just rather read about the rebelling than the guy who tells him ''hey stop that, it’s after 10 and we have a noise policy here.''

->It's suddenly flipped to where the major engine of interest and excitement in the show is the villain, while the Doctor is, absent the villain, kind of [[TheBore a pompous bore]]. The villain makes everything a lush, thrilling carnival of scares. The hero [[UpperClassTwit plays bridge with rich people]] and [[KickTheDog yells at the tea lady.]]

->The problem is that Bashir is hard to get to work on his own for more than a scene. After all, ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]'' had a great deal of trouble with character-based storytelling for its first two years, and I suspect the fact that so many of the characters were bland idealised paragons contributed to that.

->Paris was once [[LovableRogue a traitorous rogue]] and Neelix [[ConMan a shrewd businessman]]…and the episode seems to go out of its way to point out how [[GoodIsDumb they have lost their touch and becomes such chumps]]. Yes that’s right, it’s a Mary Sue moment where the writers are actually admitting they have fudged these characters right up and revealed how the Federation turns you into lazy, boring ciphers. Well at least they admit it. ‘Maybe we’ve lost our edge’ -- oh mate, that was lost as soon as Caretaker was over.

->Archer isn’t Captain Kirk. He likes water polo. He spends his off-duty hours hugging a Beagle. He’s more comfortable talking about warp theory than negotiating with hostile aliens or making sweet love to green women.

->'''Chris''': The producers of this show seem to really like going to the “[[JekyllAndHyde Clark Goes Evil]]” well.\\
'''David''': And the sad thing is, it’s when Welling does his best work.\\
'''Chris''': Yeah, it really makes me wonder if Welling’s almost-nonexistant acting as Clark is actually some kind of a weird choice to represent the fact that Clark Kent is a guy who’s holding back all the time. Like, he’s going for “repressed” and we just end up interpreting it as "mobile cardboard".

->You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with [[ARealManIsAKiller its meekness and flabbiness]]?

->Hitler, because in his own joyless mind he feels it with exceptional strength, knows that human beings don’t only want comfort, safety, short working-hours, hygiene, birth-control and, in general, common sense; they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flags and loyalty-parades. However they may be as economic theories, Fascism and Nazism are psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life. [...] Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a more grudging way, have said to people "I offer you a good time," Hitler has said to them "I offer you struggle, danger and death," and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet.

->The great artists of the world are never Puritans, and seldom even ordinarily respectable. No virtuous man — that is, virtuous in the Y.M.C.A. sense — has ever painted a picture worth looking at, or written a symphony worth hearing, or a book worth reading.

->Heroes are not acting parts because they're predictable. That's the wonderful and challenging thing about playing a hero: Within predictability, how can you be surprising and amusing?

->I never appreciated 'positive heroes' in literature. They are almost always [[FountainOfExpies cliches, copies of copies, until the model is exhausted]]. I prefer perplexity, doubt, uncertainty, not just because it provides a more 'productive' literary raw material, but because that is the [[HumansAreFlawed way we humans really are]].
