Quotes: Badass Decay

(Duke!) You used to be cool

And then the world might not be so cruel..."

Captain Hook: Smee, I don't understand. Why doesn't he fly? Is he not Peter Pan?

I can imagine some clever dick sitting around in the ideas sessions throwing that one out and [Brannon] Braga getting a hard on at the idea!
Joe Ford on Star Trek: Voyager, "The Q And the Grey"

"Storm, you have more talent in your little finger than The Sandman!"

To which I thought, "wow." I mean, I agree, but way to bury The Sandman there. For now and all time... And this is where he starts to cry again. Tommy Fucking Dreamer, the "hardcore" icon, cries more often than the fucking guy who says "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE".
