Quotes: Apocalypse How
"Sic transit mundus."note 

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.
T. S. Eliot, The Hollow Men

Buffy: This is how many apocalypses for us now?
Giles: Oh, uh, six at least. Feels like a hundred.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "The Gift"

Riley: Buffy. When I saw you stop the world from, you know, ending, I just assumed that was a big week for you. Turns out I suddenly find myself needing to know the plural of "apocalypse".
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "A New Man"

After the orbital strikes, Thunderhawk bombardments, Whirlwinds, Vindicators, fusion and starfire and finally Battle Brothers with flamers had finished cleansing the world of all the enemies of Man, we built a monastery in the center of the largest, most radioactive impact crater. We named the planet "Tranquility", for it was very quiet now.

Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston Zeddmore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human Sacrifice. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Robert Frost, "Fire and Ice"

Kodos: Smooth move, Space Lax. You've destroyed the totality of existence!
Kang: It'll be fine. I'll just leave a note.''

Eddie: This was no nuclear war. This...this...
Blaine the Mono: NOPE. IT WAS MUCH WORSE THAN THAT. AND IT'S NOT OVER YET.

Oooo, the Polar Cap is slowly expanding
In a million years we'll freeze to death I guess
If the Ice Age hasn't floored us
There's a planet heading toward us
When it hits, we'll be an interstellar mess!
Oh, our continent is crumbling and dissolving
As our rivers wash the topsoil out to sea,
And what land we can retrieve'll
Be devoured by pest and weevil,
And there won't be nothing left for you and me.
Lady Scientist, The Golden Apple, "Doomed, Doomed, Doomed"

Apocalpyse soon
Heading your way.
Ground zero at noon.
Halve a nice day.

Pragmatist, Edmund Conti
