Quotes / Asexuality

"It's like I've eaten spam a few times from a few popular brands and in a few serving suggestions, and found I'm not really keen on spam, 'cos it's salty and slimy and looks like something you might find in the alien queen's litter box. But I've found myself in a world that's completely obsessed with spam. People spend their entire lives in pursuit of spam. Every single advert on TV sells their product by placing it alongside spam. Movies have to work in at least one spam scene to reach the broadest audience. People break up and get divorced because they don't exchange enough spam. Soldiers are given time out to go have some spam. Low-risk prisoners are given spam visiting rights. People die for spam. Entire economies have been based around spam. Selling spam is the world's oldest profession. The lack of spam has been linked to mental disorders. The only thing getting teenagers through difficult puberty is the thought of one day getting to have spam of their very own. It's just tinned meat, guys."

Jack: Lemon, what do you want? Do you want to be alone for the rest of your life?
Liz: No. I just wish I could start a relationship about 12 years in, when you really don't have to try anymore and you can just sit around together and goof on tv shows, and then go to bed without anybody trying any funny business.
30 Rock, "Gavin Volure"

Oberyn: You did like boys? Before?
Varys: [shakes head]
Oberyn: Really? Girls? Hmm. I hope you wonít be offended when I say I never would have guessed.
Varys: Not at all. But I was never interested in girls, either.
Oberyn: What then?
Varys: Nothing.
Oberyn: Everybody is interested in something.
Varys: Not me. When I see what desire does to people, what itís done to this country, I am very glad to have no part in it. Besides, the absence of desire leaves one free to pursue other things.
Oberyn: Such as?
Varys: [looks meaningfully at the Iron Throne]
