Because if someone gets angry all the time, it's really no big deal. But when someone usually doesn't get angry, it's scary.
You seem more docile than I imagined. Or is that the kind of kid you have to look out for nowadays?
Now, let me just make something clear - I'm ordinarily a very kind-hearted person. For instance, on the occasion when my little sister took my favorite scarf and tried to wrap it around Shamisen as a joke, and Shamisen, entirely unimpressed by the whole affair, responded as any cat would by flailing tooth and claw in every direction until the scarf was reduced to an unidentifiable mess of wool and fibre, I was understanding enough to let the both of them off with no worse than a poke to the forehead. That's just the kind of guy I am.
When you've managed to drive a guy like that into a proper rage, you know things are getting serious.

The Hellish Handbook is a very short thing, as very few demons have the patience or the actual caring to write down rules for others to follow. As such, it has two orders, scrawled on a piece of paper that is tacked outside Lucifer's office:
1. Don't defy me. I'm not sure what punishment could be worse than what you're already going through Down Here, but I'm more than willing to find out.
2. LEAVE THE NICE ONES ALONE. Seriously. It's for your own good. (See? And you guys think I don't care. Okay, I don't, but I don't want you dying all over the place. It gets old.)
There are two very good reasons for the second rule. The first is that really nice people tend to have a "But I will destroy you should you push me too far" clause attached that makes messing with them a bad idea. Aziraphale is an example of this. However, Raphael is not — he has become such a really nice person that he has gone beyond the clause.
The second reason is that really nice people tend to have really good friends.
You might call them soft, because they're very reluctant to kill, and they might agree with you, but they're soft the way the ocean is soft, and, well; ask any sea captain how harmless and puny the ocean can be.
If you have to look along the shaft of an arrow from the wrong end, if a man has you entirely at his mercy, then hope like hell that man is an evil man. Because the evil like power, power over people, and they want to see you in fear. They want you to know you're going to die. So they'll talk. They'll gloat. They'll watch you squirm. They'll put off the moment of murder like another man will put off a good cigar. So hope like hell your captor is an evil man. A good man will kill you with hardly a word.
The trouble with small furry animals in a corner is that, just occasionally, one of them's a mongoose.
When kind men grow angry, things are about to change.
There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.
In five years, we'll either be working for [Kenneth

He never raised his voice, that was the worst thing. The fury of the Time Lord. And then we discovered why, why this Doctor, who had fought with gods and demons, why he'd run away from us and hidden. He was being kind. He wrapped my father in unbreakable chains forged in the heart of a dwarf star. He tricked my mother into the event horizon of a collapsing galaxy, to be imprisoned there forever. He still visits my sister, once a year, every year. I wonder if one day he might forgive her, but there she is, can you see? He trapped her inside a mirror. Every mirror. If ever you look at your reflection and see something move behind you, just for a second, that's her. That's always her. As for me, I was suspended in time, and the Doctor put me to work standing over the fields of England as their protector. We wanted to live forever. So the Doctor made sure that we did.
Demons run when a good man goes to war.
Night will fall and drown the sun, when a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies,
Night will fall and the dark will rise
When a good man goes to war.
The anger of a good man is not a problem. Good men have too many rules. The Doctor:
Good men don't need
rules. Today is not the day to find out why I have so many
I will admit that you surprised me. Who would have imagined that such fierce determination existed within that deceptively frail body?
Jacob is way too nice a guy for the number of ways he knows how to kill people.

. You mistake good manners for timidity. You mistake self-control for passivity. So self controlled are we that we that sometimes we won't retaliate if you harm us. But if you - any
of you - harm our loved ones, we will come at you like fanged, slavering beasts from the darkest of LSD nightmares. Believe it

, to be fair
. I try to talk
to people. And no one ever
takes it as anything other than weakness
. You listen to me try to be civilized
and you think, 'Oh, he's nothing

, we can push around. We can do whatever we want - he
won't stop us!' Because nobody ever takes me seriously - unless I shout and threaten like a cut-rate stage villain.

You knew me at school and perhaps don't take me very seriously. That would be a mistake. You must understand this. When I come to her, she will be safe, unharmed, and free. Because I will

Don't say another Goddamn word. Up until now, I've been polite. If you say anything else - word one
- I will kill myself. And when my tainted spirit finds its destination, I will topple the Master of that dark place
. From my black throne, I will lash together a machine of bone and blood, and fueled by my hatred for you
. This fear engine
will bore a hole between this world and that one
. When it begins, you will hear the sound of children screaming - as though from a great distance. A smoking orb of nothing will grow above your bed, and from it will emerge a thousand starving crows. As I slip through the widening maw in my new form, you will only catch a glimpse of my radiance before you are incinerated.
Then, as tears of bubbling pitch stream down my face, my dark work will begin. I will open one of my six mouths, and I will sing the song that ends the Earth.
What the hell, man! I thought you were supposed to be the nice

When the nice ones snap, it's always a good show.
The important thing about this ideal is the double demand it makes on human nature. The knight is a man of blood and iron, a man familiar with the sight of smashed faces and the ragged stumps of lopped off limbs; he is also a demure, almost maiden-like, guest in hall, a gentle, modest, unobtrusive man. He is not a compromise or happy mean between ferocity and meekness; he is fierce to the Nth and meek to the Nth...
Ang mabait, pag magalit, malupit.
