Quotes: Badass Decay


"You know, I was cool before I met y'all."
Charles Gunn, Angel ("Waiting in the Wings")

"Duke (Duke!) You used to be cool
But you gotta make your mind up if you're modern or old school
(Duke!) You used to be cool
Learn to kick ass again and get rid of that lame 2-weapon rule
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?
Smee: He's Peter Pan, all right, Captain. He's just been away from Neverland so long, his mind's been junk-tified. He's forgotten everything.

On works

"Q works best when there’s a big philosophical issue… I think that once the writers saw that there was sort of a comedic flair, they began writing to it, to which I would say 'Please don’t do that. I can undercut, I can spoof, I can give a wink and a nod. But if you start writing me comedic, I don’t have anywhere to go.'"

"Wolverine gets airsick. Ladies and gentlemen, the pussification has begun."

Matt: Wolverine cries a damn ton in this thing.
Chris: He is no more or less upset about Jean than he was about Professor X, which pretty much confirms every bit of fan-fiction on the Internet.
Chris Sims and Matt Wilson on X-Men 3: The Last Stand

"It's a controversy that has extended far beyond the original fan base. And, yes, it does matter... The significance of Han's quick kill shot is evident when you see the 'Holy Shit!' look on the face of the person next to you. Han Solo isn't just a smart ass who got into a bit of trouble with a crime lord. He's not misunderstood. He's actually not a good person. He's dangerous and Obi-Wan and Luke have to be desperate to count on him for transportation. They're putting their own lives in the hands of someone who just shot someone.

Eventually, Han becomes one of the heroes. Before all that happens, though, he shoots first."

"Just like it would with the Borg, this show manages to emasculate Q to the point of being a non entity. I mean what is the excuse for him returning this time? He wants a baby with Janeway? 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! ...What a waste of time and money. You can see precisely what they are going for but these scenes are so far off the mark it is laughable. Watching the Voyager crew stumbling over a hill with their guns cocked to rescue Janeway from the continuum might just be the nadir of this series – it's inexplicable and farcical on so many levels it would take me several hours to list all the gaps in logic and credibility. How the hell can humans invade the continuum and take omnipotent beings hostage? Who thought up this rubbish?"
Doc Oho on Star Trek: Voyager, "The Q And the Grey"

"That time recently when Kane tried to pull Brie Bella under the ring through a trap door? Zack (Ryder) played the part of Brie two years earlier, being cast as a damsel in distress just two weeks after the biggest moment of his career.

That’s not to say that Zack Ryder was completely emasculated by the story line that relegated him to the status of Princess Peach to John Cena’s Mario and Kane’s Bowser. (Or, if you will, Pauline to Cena’s Jumpman and Kane’s Donkey Kong)"

"Look Katara what happened to that fearless sugar queen I know? I know she's in there!"
Toph unintentionally lampshading Katara's Chickification, How I Became Yours
