->''In keeping with the positive view of sexuality, another important characteristic of nearly all of these myths is the goddess archetype. What I mean by this is that women are not only portrayed as being both strong and feminine, they are seen as having power and authority.\\
[[Series/TheXFiles Dana Scully]] is the ultimate avatar of the goddess -- a figure of authority, a seeker after truth and justice but also a companion and advocate of the dead in her role as medical examiner. Also a Gnostic goddess in battle against the Archons who seek to enslave humanity.''

->''Louise Jameson is a superb actress and real coup for the series to have been cast, and honestly I cannot imagine anybody else following Creator/ElisabethSladen's Sarah Jane with as much capability and making as much of a success of it. As a violent, independent, funny savage she is a unique character and there has been nobody quite like her before or since. Her best stories ([[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E1Robot Robot]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E6TheTalonsOfWengChiang}} Talons]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E1HorrorOfFangRock Horror]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E3ImageOfTheFendahl Fendhal]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E4TheSunMakers Sun Makers]]) are some of the best ''Doctor Who'' stories, period. And Leela has a lot to do with why... I love the Doctor's "don't ever play with strange weapons Leela. Make sure the safety catch is off Leela." She just [[TriggerHappy grabs a gun and fires regardless]]. The Doctor describes her as primitive, wild, warlike, aggressive, tempestuous, bad tempered, a warrior from a warrior tribe, courageous, indomitable, implacable, impossible. Leela has a spectacular strop after she realises she has been pacified. "You're all laughing at me! Who did it?" she asks brandishing her knife menacingly. You've got to love how she says hello to people, jumping on them with a knife raised screaming "''[[LeeroyJenkins Surrender or die!]]''" I wouldn't know whether to be terrified or turned on!''

->''I'm fine with this being a retroactive Oscar for Arquette for her performance as Alabama Worley in ''Film/TrueRomance''. ''You're so cool... you're so cool... you're so cool...'' I mean, look at how brutal this fight scene is. I don't think anyone has ever been thrown through a glass shower door as convincingly. Does Arquette fly through a shower door in ''Film/{{Boyhood}}''? She ought to. Does she put a corkscrew through Ethan Hawke's foot in ''Boyhood''? Again, she ought to. Does Drexl Spivey show up in ''Boyhood'', demanding to know where his bitch is? He ought to. I'm just saying: ''Boyhood'' would have been better if it had been ''True Romance 2: Bodybags.

She's not prudish, but she's not [[FanserviceExtra flaunting every ounce of boob and ass she has]]. She's more than ''Playboy'' material, and yet at the same time she doesn't need to prove that she's tough; she just stands there and looks at you, and if you fuck with her, she takes you apart. That's all I need. Is that so much to ask for? I guess I need to start watching [[MixedMartialArts MMA]] instead of wrestling when I want to watch women fight. I'm just sad she didn't really armbar anyone.

Little ole' Jamie Lynn didn't waste any time and knew that you should always bring a knife to a pita fight. So she grabbed her fallen friend, dragged the girl behind the counter, found a bread knife and started waving it around. It was like a scene out of a hillbilly ''Film/KillBill''. Everyone quickly realized that [[BigEater you should never ever get between a Spears and her eats]], so they turned off the fuckery and the fight was over... That is the sign of a true friend who is always down for you. The next time you meet a trick whom you think could be a possible friend, ask them just one very important question: "''[[OverlyNarrowSuperlative If a fight breaks out at the Pita Pit and some piece of trash knocks me in the head with a bottle, will you drag me to safety, get a hold of a long knife and threaten to slice those hos like a toasted pita if they don’t stop?]]''" That's the only question you need to ask.''
