->''If we shadows have offended,\\
Think but this, and all is mended,\\
That you have but slumber'd here\\
While these visions did appear.\\
And this weak and idle theme,\\
No more yielding but a dream,\\
Gentles, do not reprehend:\\
if you pardon, we will mend:\\
And, as I am an honest Puck,\\
If we have unearned luck\\
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,\\
We will make amends ere long;\\
Else the Puck a liar call;\\
So, good night unto you all.\\
Give me your hands, if we be friends,\\
And Robin shall restore amends.''

->''"If you need the security a strong continuity provides, you may not want to seek psychological security in ''StarWars'', ''StarTrek'', or any other science fiction series (or computer game continuity). There's holes, gaps, and other problems -- my suggestion to you would be to just try to relax a little and enjoy the escapism. When escapism becomes work, an obssession [sic], or is just stressing you out in general, then it's not doing its job and you need to take a step back and take a breather."''

->''"Final words: The Franchise/IndianaJones movies are all entitled to some dumb moments. They recapture the spirit of the old adventure films that came out during The Great Depression and World War II. Audiences were looking to [[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars escape the real world and forget about their troubles]]. And that's what movies are all about: entertainment. But today, audiences are far more critical, have less imagination, and aren't as willing to suspend their disbelief; and that is the death of cinema."''

->''"Let's face it, the extreme amount of crap [[Creator/JoelSchumacher he's]] caught for making this movie is more than a little over the top, and in some cases, borderline psychotic.

Of course that's not realistic! This is a comic.''
