23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
Rimmer: Well, I'd have thought it was obvious. Two people, unable to contain their desires, had an illicit liaison. A liaison that an unforgiving society would not accept. And you were the fruit of their forbidden passion. You're forbidden passion fruit.
Lister: What are you saying?
Rimmer: I'm saying, Lister, that there's a very real possibility that your parents were brother and sister.
— Red Dwarf, "The Last Day"
Homer: If he marries your mother, Marge, we'll be brother and sister. And then our kids...they'll be horrible freaks with pink skin, no overbites, and five fingers on each hand! [Homer imagines the freakish kids] Aaah!
— The Simpsons, "Lady Bouvier's Lover"
Jessica: Yeah the Cullens are all together, like TOGETHER together. Uh, the blonde girl, that's Rosalie, and the big dark-haired guy Emmett, they're like a thing. I'm not even sure that's legal.
Angela: Jess, they're not actually related.
Jessica: Yeah, but they live together. It's weird.
Caligula: To tell you the truth, I couldn't give a damn about Drusus and Nero.
Claudius: But they're your brothers.
Caligula: Yes, I know. But then you don't like Aunt Livilla and she is her sister. Now I love my sisters, uncle.
Azaka Kokuto: I am what you would call a troubled young lady. I am going to explain myself so there won't be any misunderstandings. I am not troubled with the fact that I love my own brother. I seriously love Mikiya to the point where I can't believe it myself. I got adopted by my uncle, entered a boarding school in Reien, and lived away from Mikiya so that he would forget about me being his younger sister.

Leia: Luke's my brother.
Han: Then why were you always kissing?
Atia: You fucked your sister! You little pervert!
Kyousuke: The concept of love between siblings is accepted as a legitimate theme under official publishers! Is there any difference between them? No. New stories, old ones, they're all the same!
Ayase: W-what are you doing, dragging gods into our story!?
Kyousuke: Love between siblings has always been an inherited story, ever since the era that humans first appeared!!
It wouldn't be a traditional Norfolk wedding without a speech from the father of the bride and groom.
