->Did you ever feel like... like somepony made you a background pony in your own story? [...] Like... Like you're reading a story, right? And you start out, and the first chapter or two you think 'oh, this story is all about THIS character! the peasant colt in the cottage!' and you go along and... then somewhere in the middle suddenly it's not anymore, it's all about the lonely princess in the tower or the wandering knight and the peasant colt is just a pony in the background for the rest of the story. I kinda feel like that. Like I'm the peasant pony and the writer's just forgot all about me and gone off and did something with somepony else. [...] When we first got here, Mom and me, I mean, everything just kept happening. And stuff started building up, and building up, and it felt like, I dunno, like something ''big and important'' was going to happen to me-- but instead it all happened to [[spoiler: ''Spike'']]. [...] I feel like I came all this way and ''something'' was supposed to happen... I was supposed to ''make'' something happen... and I never did.

->I know I'm a Power Ranger, but c'mon. You guys are the ones that really... you know... lit it up. I don't feel like I did my share...Oh, actually yeah, I did do something special. I got turned into a stone statue, and everyone had to come and save me. [[DesignatedDamnsel Awesome]].

->In-between these various abuses of the Penal Code are Ponch's own penal code violations--i.e.: his [[strike:constant sexual harassment of any good-looking female who walks by him]] frequent romantic dates--as well as Jon's mysteriously blank social life (Estrada favoritism on the part of ''Series/{{CHiPs}}''[='=]s producers? Naah).

->Poor Roxanne Dawson. When the show began, BíElanna was one of the characters that the writing team were most invested in -- you could tell by the way it was her story that they focused on immediately after the pilot. There was a nice little [[CharacterDevelopment character arc]] running through the first three seasons that saw the character go from an aggressive bully to a focused, professional Starfleet engineer...Season four was where it all started to go wrong (it seems that with the advent of Jeri Ryanís [[SpotlightStealingSquad Seven of Nine]] that Torres was neglected almost as if the writers are commenting that you canít have two such sophisticated characters on the show) and Torres underwent something of a character deterioration and the few times they could be bothered to give her an episode it seems that they felt the need to make an [[AesopAmnesia out-of-character regression]].

->This is a Superman show where [[SpotlightStealingSquad Green Arrow is more of a character]], because Superman himself is [[StaticCharacter forced to be static]]. And itís obvious that everyone involved has realized this. Thatís why theyíve introduced Green Arrow, and the JSA, and all those other guys, because the only alternative is a show about Clark Kent not being Superman, and [[WhoWouldWantToWatchUs who in the hell wants to watch that?]]

->And then there was the whole mess of Oliver and Chloe. [[HyperCompetentSidekick But mostly Oliver.]]\\\
As an aside, can I tell you how ridiculous I find it that, in the back half of the final season of ''Smallville'', which is ostensibly about Clark Kent before he becomes Superman, we just watched an episode where the A-Plot featured Green Arrow and Chloe rather than the main character?\\\
